James Franco, the man who does it all - acts, directs, pursuing a PhD, makes music videos - has decided he is coming to San Francisco to, well, make porn. Sort of.

On a recent episode of Conan, the Hollywood renaissance man confessed to making an amateur porn tape with a girlfriend once, which got him thinking about how porn actors really know what they're doing.

"When I was young, I got a video camera and my girlfriend and I decided to film ourselves and watched it back and said, 'Yeah, well, let's never watch that again.'

"Those people in pornos, they are great performers; they're not just doing it, they're selling it to an audience."

"They're performing so that an audience can get turned on by that kinda thing."

"My girlfriend and I didn't know that, so it was just kinda like weird movement. ... It was really boring."

He went on to say he's making a documentary about pornography, which will involve a San Francisco-based adult entertainment company.

"There's this amazing facility in San Francisco," he said, "They do everything in house, they build their props in house. It's an incredible place."

Which, most likely is the Mission's own Kink.com.

According to IndieWire, a tweet from Kink.com actress Rain Degrey from June 26th read:

“Kink.com is all aflutter today because James Franco is here shooting his new movie. All these girls want to f-- him! lol.”

The tweet was deleted shortly thereafter.
