Wait until you hear this! Last Saturday night, Ron Jeremy and Pastor Craig Gross (of www.xxxChurch.com) were debating porn at a huge church here in San Diego -- no, itís not a typo, I did indeed say church; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rock_Church. I was in the audience, as was porn legend Stephanie Swift, (I dated her Mom for an entire summer many years ago).

The combined church buildings cover four football fields. The main church facility where the debate was held had seating for over 5,000 people, and almost every seat was filled for what was billed as the ''Great Porn Debate''. I marveled at the size of the facility as I entered to what at first reminded me of a gigantic night club or concert venue, complete with a DJ spinning hip-hop music on the stage. The place was equipped with two very large projection screens for camera operators to show the audience up close views of the stage.

Attendees were at least 18 years of age, not unlike performers on porn sets, and seemed to be mostly in the 20-40 age groups. It looked to me like there were as many couples as singles there. Someone recognized me as I was taking my seat, and told folks who I was, but everyone was cordial and I was asked a lot of questions about porn while waiting for the event to start. Maybe it was the music, or the anticipation of the porn debate, but everyone was smiling and happy looking.

The church suddenly broke out in loud cheering and applause when Pastor Miles McPherson, a former NFL player who is the Pastor and Founder of the Rock Church, walked onto the stage to act as moderator and Mc for the debate. Heís down to earth, yet inspirational, congenial, fair, and he was the perfect moderator. Craig opened with 15 minutes of his contentions, Ron then had 15 minutes to respond, and then questions were entertained from those arriving via text messages, and from on site attendees. Everything was brilliantly organized.

The questions covered lots of areas, a few of which concerned religion, while most mirrored the same questions we get from porn fans. At one point, while Ron was answering a question about anal sex, it came out that heís had sex with over 3,000 women, and the moderator/Pastor then grabbed two unopened bottles of drinking water and walked around Ron with a grin on his face as if he was blessing him with holy water. The attendees erupted with laughter, Ron Jeremy smiled, and Craig just watched.

In my opinion, although Ron Jeremy clearly bested Pastor Gross in the formal debate and the 90-minute follow-on questions and answers, there was so much meaningful information discussed that the audience also ''won'' Big time. Yes, some spiritual matters were addressed, but the thirst for sexual enlightenment also shined brightly, and in fact ruled the evening. Everyone was respectful that we were in church, but candid sex information was diplomatically dispensed in a way that was not uncomfortable. Afterwards, Ron Jeremy and Craig Gross headed for the library for a meet-and-greet with anyone who wanted to stop by. Pastor McPherson and I chatted a bit, and I got to hug Stephanie Swift as I was exiting the Great Porn Debate venue.

As I was heading towards the library to say goodbye to Ron Jeremy, folks smiled and welcomed me to their church, and a long line formed to get Ronís autograph and/or a photo with him---it was not unlike the annual AVN Expo in Las Vegas. The line grew to approximately four blocks long. To me, many of the church folks were worshipping the legend of Ron Jeremy, clearly the man of the hour!

In closing, I wholeheartedly commend Pastor McPherson for hosting such a daring and worthwhile event for his flock, and for the fair, fun, and splendid way he moderated the debate. Heís quite a man of God, and heís an all-around super human being. Yes, I spent three hours in church, and it was fine! If you sometime get the opportunity, visit the Rock Church for an amazing experience.
