Ron Jeremy Cleared For Sex; Porn Star Was In Hospital With Aneurysm Near Heart

The Hedgehog can finally hedge his hog again.

After nearly a month in a Los Angeles hospital, legendary porn star Ron Jeremy has been cleared to have sex.

The pudgy, hirsute star of such of titles as "21 Hump Street" and "What's Butt Got To Do With It" was sidelined last month by an aneurysm near his heart, requiring a long, hard stint in the clinic, which left his show business career flaccid. But doctors have now given him the go ahead to do what he is most famous for, TMZ reports.

"They said to me at the clinic, that if you can walk up two flights of stairs you're able to have sex," he told the site. "So I walked up two flights of stairs and three additional stairs."

The 59-year-old "Hedgehog," as he is lovingly known by his fans, was in critical condition at the beginning of his hospital stay and out of the bone zone for several weeks.

He's officially retired, but the legend is still rock hard in ongoing TV and film cameos. Here are some of our favorite Ron Jeremy quotes:

  • My goal in life is to be an actor.
  • Sex is simple - love is painful.
  • At any given time there are about 24 reliable woodsmen, guys who keep good erections in the American porn scene. You know, myself, Randy West, Peter North, Tom Byron.
  • I'd like to see Richard Burton or Sir John Gielgud or Sir Laurence Olivier do "Macbeth", memorizing all that dialogue, and have a boner.
