There are some shows that push the limits of taste, and others that are so far past the limits that taste may no longer apply. Amazon's The Boys is a prime example of the latter kind of show, which delights in pushing the boundaries of how much gore, violence, and nudity can be shown on a streaming platform. Now the series showrunner Eric Kripke has upped the ante further by asking fans on Twitter to demand that Amazon allow him to release actual porn he shot for The Boys.

Let's go rogue! We shot full porn scenes for Ep 7 & I wanna post 'em on http://SupePorn.com. But @SPTV, @PrimeVideo & @AmazonStudios are skittish to get into the porn biz? Reply to them & DEMAND Supe Porn!

In episode 7 of The Boys, we see former superhero Lamplighter deals with his feelings of guilt and emptiness by watching porn incessantly. But not just any porn, specifically superhero-themed porn featuring performers dressed up as his former teammates in The Seven.

In the few brief glimpses we see of the super-themed porn, such titles as "Big black noir", "Deep Does It in the Blowhole," "Translucent: The Invisible Cock," "Queen Maeve: Pleasure Slave," "Starlight Pulls an A-Train," and finally "Homelander cucks your wife" make it apparent that this particular genre of pornography is quite popular in that world, and smut companies have not been slow in catering to the demand.

In keeping with The Boys habit of making fun of real-life social trends, superhero-themed porn has exploded in popularity in the real world ever since the rise of the MCU. You can find actual titles just like the ones on the show with a quick internet search, with DC and Marvel heroes in place of members of The Seven. Clearly, Kripke was really committed to satirizing this particular aspect of pop culture, so much so that he went to the extent of filming the complete porn scenes, and now wishes to share them with fans.

Kripke has the support of Seth Rogen in his endeavor. Rogen, who acts as producer for The Boys, replied to Kripke's Tweet with the comment, "I demand this.". For his part, Kripke really wants to show the world his first foray into the world of porn, since he added a followup Tweet to get the hashtag trending.

"I don't know why this matters to me, but it does! Retweet, spread the word! #DemandSupePorn"

Since superhero comics have already explored every other merchandising avenue for their characters, it would not be unthinkable for some brave studio to venture into superhero-porn as well. And the reputation of The Boys would make it the perfect property to take the first step in that direction. Only time will tell if Kripke's new hashtag gains traction, and leads to fans demanding that Amazon "release theKripkePorn cut".

Amazon Studios' The Boys features Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother's Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as the Female, Erin Moriarty as Annie January, Chace Crawford as the Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander, Aya Cash as Stormfront and Simon Pegg as Hughie's dad. New episodes of Season 2 release Fridays on Amazon Prime Video.
