Ron Jeremy made a living by starring in some of the top adult films of his time and lead the way in the porn industry with one of the most successful porn careers of all time. He became known for his nine-and-a-half inch "third leg" and rose to the top despite his not-so-stellar looks.

Now 64-years-old, Jeremy has a net worth of $7.8 million dollars and has no inclination to stop starring in adult films anytime soon. In an interview with news.com.au Jeremy said, "As long as people are keen to see a piece of my schmacko play hide the bacon, I will be around."
That isn't all the porn-prodigy has to say, he also made it clear he feels the internet killed the porn industry saying, "The internet has put porn out of business. Video used to be king, but now the storytelling is gone and it’s all about compilations like 'Asians who do this' or 'Jews who do that'."
Jeremy believes that piracy has also destroyed the industry, and in a way, he isn't wrong. "Porn used to be protected by bad quality in the sense that every time you made a copy of a VHS tape it would become fuzzy and hard to see. Now with digital, it doesn’t matter how many copies you make because the quality remains the same and then is quickly shared by companies like PornHub, YouPorn and Sex Hamster."
When Pornhub first started to take off, it set the trend for the future of consumption of adult films by sequestering all of the current media into one place and charging for premium membership which provided access to all of the content on a subscription basis. The new model cut-out the films producers from the picture and essentially ended up becoming one of the YouTube's of the porn world.
Jeremy showed he is not unaware of where the trend is going saying, "It’s getting to the point where pirates and producers are working together on distribution deals." Despite the massive undercutting of adult film's producers in the current model, Jeremy did have some words of praise for the internet, "It has made porn more acceptable and has seen the emergence of the amateur scene where couples shoot in their own home and upload online."
"The internet allows anyone to be a musician or anyone to be a porn star," Jeremy continued. "It will all fall into place. And if you don’t want your kid to see it, lock up the computer." He didn't have such nice things to say about the recent dilemma of 'revenge porn', a new fad where a jilted ex-lover puts pornographic images of their former partner online. "It’s absolutely wrong and the person should get sued or punched in the face by a big weapon," he continued. "It crosses the line and can ruin someone’s family life or job."
Jeremy is currently in Australia for a guest appearance at Sexpo.
