Radio review: My Dad Wrote a Porno is a hilarous podcast

My Dad Wrote a Porno Podcast

It's every child's nightmare. But you can understand where Jamie Morton's dad was coming from.

I haven't read Fifty Shades of Grey. But who hasn't thought that life might be easier if you could just write a dirty book and earn loadsa money.

The story goes that at his sister's birthday party, Morton's dad took him into the study and handed him some chapters of a novel he was writing under the pen name Rocky Flintstone.

Much to his alarm, Morton realised that it was a dirty book – a kind of difficult moment for any child. You don't want to think your parents have ever done it.

The novel was called Belinda Blinked. It followed the sexy adventures of Belinda, the saucepan saleswoman in her high heels and silk blouse.

Apparently Rocky said he fancied writing something along the lines of “Fifty colours of grey.”

Okay, so I'm late to this party. You could say I was the original “My Dad Wrote A Porno virgin” ... but it is hilariously funny.

The podcast is Jamie Morton reading the book out to his friends and them all cracking jokes, guffawing and having a laugh about it.

Okay it is puerile and smutty, but it's also very very funny. Easy to see why it has got millions of followers.

It's the way he writes it: “He grabbed her cervix”? I don't think so.

Is it true that on hearing the first podcast, Jamie's mum cried: “This is disgusting, I want no part of it'?”

Is it also true that Jamie's dad is a retired builder/teacher/geologist from Northern Ireland who says he has to keep writing as he needs the cash?

Apparently he bashes his stories out in the garden shed because Jamie's mum won't let him write them in the house. Old Rocky rides again.

Listen and weep... laughing.
