James Franco’s latest project is making a documentary about BDSM and fetish porn site Kink.com. [Warning: Link is oh so very NSFW].

On “Conan” to promote “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” Franco doesn’t mention the Kink.com site by name.

It’s at this old armory and they do everything in house, they build their props in house, so I’m making a documentary about that.”

Kink.com was formed in 1997 by Peter Acworth while he was earning his PhD in finance at Columbia University. When the site became successful, he dropped out of the program.

The city later ruled that Kink.com didn’t violate any laws or zoning requirements.

All these girls want to f*ck him! lol.” However, the tweet was later deleted.

Franco told Conan O’Brien that he’s long had an interest in porn and those who make it, but quickly learned that it wasn’t one of his talents after he and a girlfriend shot footage of themselves having sex. ...
