Ron Jeremy is back and (almost) fully functional


More than a month after being hospitalized with an aneurysm near his heart, Jewish pornography legend Ron Jeremy is back to work.

In an interview Jeremy had with CNN on Monday, he admits that the health scare was “really spooky. I guess no heart problem comes at the right time, but this was just a big disaster.”

But a measly aneurysm can’t stop Jeremy from filming his next pornographic flick, “Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Legends.”

But things are just not as they used to be for Jeremy. “I was nervous,” he admits. “Blood pressure medicine can affect the penis. I’m taking blood pressure medicine now and I was able to do it, but my scenes aren’t as good as they used to be. I don’t get the full massive. If I could be so specific, CNN, it bends a little. But it felt good being back in the saddle.” Good to know.

Jeremy seems very concerned about his situation, especially because he maintains a healthy lifestyle. Unless you count all the sex. We don’t.  “It really bugs me,” Jeremy said, ” it really actually bothers me because I don’t smoke, I barely drink, I don’t touch drugs. I had none of those horrible habits and I still got this horrendous heart problem: aortic dissection, or aortic aneurysm dissection.

However, if you can count one good thing to come out of the situation, is positive attitude from his fans.

“People used to come up to me (and say), can I see your penis or God knows what I used to hear. Now it’s, how’s your rehab coming along? We’re glad you’re OK.”

And so are we, Ron.
