A film with a storyline who’s only purpose is to facilitate the 'action'. Similar to porn where a story is only in place to give a reason for why the two (or more) people have been brought together to indulge in sex.

In general action porn revolves around a protagonist who uses a combination of insane firepower, kung fu, free-running, massive explosions, stunts and his own awesomeness in order to save the world in the most gratuitous way possible.

One of the best and most literal examples of action porn is the film “Shoot ‘Em Up” in which Clive Owen continues to have sex with his love interest whilst taking out a room of armed men.

Other major action porn tiles include Born to fight, District 13 and Ong Bak.

A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
