The release of the new Star Wars movie has also given a sales boost to the world of Star Wars porn.

The much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened this week to rave reviews (read our spoiler free preview here) with the film expected to shatter all box office records.

However, the film is also providing a handy boost to another series of films, ones that you won't see down your local cineplex.

The London Independent reports that sales of Star Wars 'porn', parodies of the original movies, have shot up in recent weeks.

A site that sells adult films called GameLink is reported as saying that sales of the NSFW versions of the classic sci-fi flicks are up 500 per cent.

The most popular of the genre is a movie called Star Wars XXX, which was made in 2012.

"The spike in sales for the parody is representative of a much larger trend of brand-specific merchandise for Star Wars, which shows the strong bond fans have with the movies," GameLink executive Jeff Dillon is quoted as saying.

"We began noticing a gradual increase in sales of the title at the beginning of November, but it wasn’t until the past two weeks that purchases of Star Wars XXX really skyrocketed."
