In these difficult political times one needs a little levity, and there is nothing funnier than gay porn, at least that's the premise of a new series from Border2Border Entertainment called "Popporn."

Gay porn: if you spend any time thinking about it, could be described as situational comedy.

So it comes as no surprise that it is twice as funny when comedians take a look at clips in porn categories such as “Straight2Gay” “Daddy Issues” and “Hard Criminals” and offer high-brow criticisms.  

“Popporn” is a new half-hour clip show which puts comedians in front of recent gay porn films where they offer commentary on everything from dialogue to sexual positions.

Done in the style of “The Best Week Ever” and other weekly wrap-up shows, “Popporn” is a hilarious and often times uproarious good time as comedians both male and female pick apart the gay male sex scenes with a discerning eye.

In the first episode, which examines the premise that straight men can be seduced by the most muscular and accommodating gay man, the panel of roasters lay into tissue-thin storylines and illogical repartee.

For instance, when examining the movie “Freaky Friday,” a male pornographic twist on the Disney classic, an older inebriated gay gentlemen switches bodies with a younger and leaner straight one.

Male on male sexcapades ensue, but the comedians find fault with blaring potholes because the film only focuses on the hot lad and never mentions the old man he switched with.

“That body still does not belong to you,” quips Erin Burely during one scene involving a threesome, “And now you are letting not one, but two strange men have sex with it?”

“Where is the young guy in the old dude’s body?” asks comedian Ted Morris watching the same scene. “What is going on? That’s the movie, not this. Where’s the old dude?”

The series is for mature audiences only because of language. Private parts are covered with eggplant and peach emojis, however bare backsides are sometimes allowed.

The comedians also rate the movie they are watching with what they call “butter squirts.” Plotline, acting and situational framework are the basis on which they rate the films, but it’s all done tongue-in-cheek.

“Popporn” had me laughing a lot. Comedians serve as voices of reason in otherwise ridiculous storylines and the contrast is fun and fresh. I particularly enjoyed one scene in which “Star Wars” gets an all-male porn reboot.

As Obi-Wan’s eggplant is out and he begins to engage in gay pleasures with another Jedi, Burley looks dead in the camera and says, “That’s great, that super! You’re just ruining my childhood.” 

Other re-workings include "Superman Vs. Batman," "Tarzan" and "Sense 8."

There are six episodes in season one, but another 12 episodes have already been ordered for season two. 

Popporn is available for rental on select digital platforms such as Amazon, YouTube, and Vimeo
