Actor/comedian Jamie Kennedy, best known for "Scream" and "The Jamie Kennedy Experiment," explains why he never got married, his thoughts on monogamy, the expectations versus reality of actors' private lives, and how he became involved with Jizz-off. This episode had to be recorded on Zoom so audio quality is not as good as usual but the content is fun! The 30-minute talk turned to 90 minutes with more discussion on porn, sex work, bisexuality, and cancel culture on Leyna's other podcast, "Leyna Nguyen Unscripted."

EP 68 Jamie Kennedy, Did He Experiment?
I'm not ready to be married because I'm not ready to have a boss.
I've had some girlfriends and they were like foremen
So is that a bottle of Jizzoff in your pocket or
Yeah, are you just happy to see me?
The only reason I'm not married is possibly the monogamy thing.
It sounds like you've never been with a partner who was okay sharing you
I love it when I can make Jamie Kennedy laugh.
I will say there is something I believe now someone introduced me to with sex energy. In terms of like if you have sex with somebody with bad mojo, that Mojo may go on you and I do kind of believe that.
Get ready. This is consenting adults.

You can read other ppl’s input and leave your own. Just go to consenting adults show.com that’s consenting adults—with an s, otherwise it’s just masturbation. Consentingadultsshow.Com.
My guest today is an actor and comedian probably best known as his role as Randy Makes in the scream franchise. And although I really liked him in that, I'd have to say my favorite was watching him in the Jamie Kennedy experiment. Now for anyone who's too young to remember or too old to remember that was like a hidden camera prank show that just had me rolling all the time. Alright, so this thing came across my desk. It was hand sanitizer. I'm like, oh, you know, pandemic and everything. And then the hand sanitizer is called jizzoff. So that made me chuckle the thing that really caught my eye was at the celebrity endorser was Jamie Kennedy. And I thought to myself, Okay, not too many people would be able to pull that off or would be willing to pull that off. And I said, that's perfect. So did they like Hey, Jamie, we got a thing called Jizzoff. We want you to be the face of that doesn't sound right. But how did they approach you? And you said yes.
Oh, well, you know, it's a long story. I'll give you the simple answer. We're in the middle of the pandemic. And my friend and his sisters all came over and they had a barbecue for me for my fiftieth. I was paranoid, like literally they were putting food in the middle of my yard I’ve a nice backyard. And I would go and get like a feral cat and then I'd run away. I mean this was a 2020 May remember that that's the last drop drop with so I would go and they would make fun of me, you know, and they were careful but a little bit more out there than I was and so they're like, you're so paranoid. And they like you should have your own sanitizer. You should have Jizzoff What's that? And then Celeste and her friend Colleen and other childhood friend, they got together and they started this sanitizer called jizz off. I was like, Is that real? And they're like, Yeah, and so it's kind of brilliant. Because basically, they say it germs, dirt. Smegma, gunk, whatever it is. They go, why can't it be called Jizz? And I'm like, yeah, like people think jizz, is that one thing, but it's a lot more than that. And it's like, oh, there's like jizz on it. We kind of said that, Billy. I do remember that. People would say that. I thought it was hilarious. I thought it was really interesting. And the sanitizer’s really good. Like I'm not saying that because I'm involved. It's soft. It's got all the germ killing powers, but yet it's soft and it doesn't dry your hands out and it smells good. And it doesn't smell like bleach those who get so I was like this is so interesting. And my name is Jamie but people know me as different things and like my use of an email called Jizzaime and Jizzified because of rap because I was B-rad and all this stuff. So I was like, it could be a two fold, it could be like a hip hop thing. And like impossible. Sex thing.
They called up Miami PRIDE Miami prides like let's do this. So we started a soft launch and no joke intended,
And we'll never we'll never look at jazz the same way again.
Yeah, and you take that little bottle and that just fits in your pocket. Exactly. And you spray it boom, and you're done. And it smells good.
So he's got a bottle of juice off in your pocket or
Yeah are you just happy to see me Jizzoffproducts.com is where you want to go. And to me it's here's your essential. You got your wallet. You got your chapstick, there's a Ford Maverick you got your I, ear pods, you got your phone, and you got your bottle of jizz and you're set to go. So that's why I got involved and you know, we're we're in baby company we're trying to grow but it's a very good product.
I love it. Awesome. So you're 50 you're like supposed to be over the hill like well over the hill. How do you feel like Do you remember being young and thinking 40 was old?
Yeah, I don't really feel that much different, like feel probably like I'm 21 ish still, but I don't feel whatever 50 or 51 was supposed to be is not that way. And I don't know operating through my eyes. You don't you know, there was pictures of Madonna the other day on the internet or something. She did some kind of thing and she got trouble for it. She's 63 And I'm like, wow, Madonna still looks incredible.
I know. Like Susanne Somers, have you seen her?
Yeah, Susanne Somers is incredible. So I think I think we're at this great age now in the world and the age where you don't have to look old and decrepit. And you can take care of yourself and people aren't feeling good at all. I mean, I think there's all types of Cougars are now looking. Competing with Kylie you know, right.
Yeah. Have you ever been married? (No) Is that by choice?
People do get married without making a choice right? Those are called arranged marriages.
At for low key a crime. Um, of course it’s by choice.
You know, I always say I'm not ready to be married because I'm not ready to have a boss.
I've had some girlfriends and they were like Foreman's, so I mean you get married, then you have like a whole CEO. I know I'm cancelled I’m canceled for that joke.
No, actually, you're not because nowadays it's it's like totally okay.
I listen. I think it's a wonderful, interesting concept.
But every day is gonna get disrupted more and more because of technology. Because we are such an insulated society and you can go on your phone and you can buy your crypto and order Uber and your Uber Postmates and your blah blah and your Netflix and you can work from home so at some point, is it marriage or you just need a companion obviously love is a love. It's a different thing. But there's a lot of things people conflate with love as opposed to love.
Right. What about monogamy?
Monogamy is a different thing for me. And is evolved over the years and it's a many layered topic.
Do you think humans are made to be monogamous or is that something I mean, most people I talked to for this program think that that is just it's manmade that humans really aren't made to be monogamous.
That’s interesting that you say that and you use the work for Channel 9.
Um, because don't think of the newscasters you know talking about this so it's
Oh, well, okay. Let me tell you and let him tell me if people in the Hollywood community is like this, the way we are off camera
Okay. Right. So totally different. There is an image. And then there is reality.
Of course, I know some of the craziest conversations I've had with people and local affiliates. The only reason I'm not married is possibly the monogamy thing. The world has changed so much. So it's hard to say because it's posed, you know, whatever we're in right now in terms of this pandemic, just that now it's like, Yo, what's up Who you talking to or whatever, although I'm much more chill than I was when in my backyard. But I think like when I was like, first of all, I'm a Gemini. Oh, right. And I do believe that has something to do with it. I'm the youngest of six. I'm an actor. I'm a comedian. So those are like four or five factors. That play into this. And then I feel that as you're younger and then as you get older, things change. So you're kind of ruled by your genitals as a young man. Oh, and they kind of lead they lead where you go, you know what I'm saying that that testosterone leads you and as you get older, I think that you realize, okay, I don't you can, you can look at the buffet, but you don't necessarily have to, you know, eat sample. And I think that but no, do I do I think that people want to go out and explore Yes, but there's, there's different types of things I've heard about. There's something called Sapiosexual
So save your sexual are people that cannot have sex with somebody unless they're in love, I believe is that correct?
I think they're more like intellectually attracted to someone like intelligence. You know, it's not just a physical thing.
Yes. And I think that um, it's very, you know, it's such as your many layers subject but you know, women and men are are different, I assume, but maybe not because women but I only have dated women, you know, but you know, I think it's healthy to talk about these things. But I think sometimes it could make your partner upset.
Well, yeah, if they're uptight. Have you heard of, have you heard of a thing called the lifestyle?
What’s the lifestyle?
The lifestyle is the ethically non monogamous community, ethical non monogamy were? Well like swingers. Oh, the polyamorous where it's okay. You could be married. You could share your wife. You could have sex with other people and it's all consensual because they're able to separate sex and love.
Hmm, yeah, I think a lot I think, I think that our society, it's very uh a thing that's not that accepted. Yeah, I don't think that's there yet. I think that people put those two and I think that sex can be sometimes just like a handshake and fun and but there's other people that feel that sex is much more than that. And I'm not saying it can't be amazing to naked beautiful sex till but there's all different types of them.
Right. Okay. You're very diplomatic. Mr. Kennedy, very diplomatic.
What was it? How was it?
So So but what are your personal feelings on non monogamy? Like I'm sure it sounds like you've never been with a partner who was okay sharing you. Oh.
I love it when I can make Jamie Kennedy laugh.
Well, I Yeah. I have a lot of drama. I've had a lot of drama. And hehe
Because like people would get jealous. Do they get jealous? Like you couldn't go sleep with someone else with their consent?
No, right. No way. In fact, I did was you know, I I've been very fortunate. You know, I've lived and I would say that, even people that would be considered like you would think Oh, much more free. Anybody in the world and like with their labels…
They might even be more mad then then like a normal I find like more like normal women like I don't mean normal but like more traditional that might piss people off too literally this is a minefield we have to talk about because it's 2021 but like more, let's say like let's see what's in a job that is like some can’t even say school teacher because you know, they're freaks. I'm just trying to think like a librarian but you know, they're freaks.
Exactly. So I'm trying to think like, like someone who is, let's just say, a coat check woman. A classy nice, normal coat check woman per se, okay, and someone that may, let's say dance let's just say that for a living, right? Oh, the the person doing a more straight edge job is usually the wild or possibly more open one than the person in the sex working field. But that makes sense because that's a whole other 20 hour podcast. Because it's monetized and all of this stuff. But yes, in a nutshell. I have never been with somebody. In fact, just talking about it really is all of your partner like insantity like that just will it that's why I'm saying things get conflated with what they are. But I will say there's one thing I don't want to go off the thing I want you to hold your thought is that I will say there is something I believe now someone introduced me to with sex energy in terms of like if you have sex with somebody with bad mojo, that Mojo may go on you and I do kind of believe that
And you know what you don't be used for that? Jizzoff.
But yes, I've never been with a partner who's like, please go have sex with that waitress.
Okay. You may choose not to answer this. But if you had the opportunity to be in a relationship with someone who was really open and wanted to maybe watch you with someone else, or share you whatever would that be cool?
I mean, to determine from the weather. You mean like, oh, what would I have? I mean, I'd have to live love the thing is I wouldn't be within a relationship that wouldn't define my soul committed relationship thing. I mean, that would probably be a little part of it. But for me, the relationship has to be because of all the love and all of these other things and laughter and all this connection. But that's a that would be an interesting thing with it, you know, and then women always say well, you know, I get to get my cake and eat it too. And I've always been like, go for it. Yeah,
You wouldn't be jealous. Like if your woman wanted to. You wouldn't be jealous. You'd let her.
I know I've never really had that problem. But but maybe because I got spurned at a young age you know, maybe I got hurt, but maybe maybe maybe nine I'm not like sitting there like broadcast it and send me that videos. I don't want that shit. But like I'm saying, I've never understood if people were doing thing over here, and then they go but you can't I mean that's that would be fair. I'm a fair person. So if yes, if you were doing that, and the other person should be allowed to do that. I do agree with that. As long as everything's talked about, but you know, there's all different levels to that, but I'm saying I don't need to see it.
Okay, well, some people like seeing it. Have you ever heard of cuckolding?
Yeah, but that's a cuck. That's a whole different thing I ain’t that! You know what clean up is Jesus. Yeah, go down that road. I mean, that's that I've had I've had people. I've had some crazy stories happen to me on the road. And, you know, I don't know how much I could say but
You can say as much as, Jaime you have a podcast. Holy moly. I've heard you talk in your podcast. You say whatever the hell you want.
I talk about I talk about life. I don't talk about like intimate like this.
But this is the best part of life, sex. Yes, sex is should be enjoyed right? You shouldn’t. You shouldn't feel bad.
I agree with that
So you've had some you've had some wild times, right? Yeah. But I've also had Yeah, but yeah, I've had threesomes. And that's that's like Tuesday night possibly foursomes?
I think so
I don't know Jamie, I can count pretty high with but end up sitting here all day.
Okay, so then, believe it or not, unless it's just a wild drunk one time thing if you've participated in things like that, then you've participated in lifestyle activities.
Oh, it's called lifestyle activities.
Yeah. So whether you're swingers or you know, a hot wife where you just share your or a bull. I could see you as a bull but like it's a funny bull
What’s a bull?
A bull is someone who will sleep with someone else's girlfriend or wife because the husband wants it.
It I've I've had these type of opportunities like dudes will want that. Women will be hitting on me hard. Yeah. And I'll be like great. You know, send your husband to Starbucks. And he's like, Oh, no,
No, no, he's gonna watch.
He’s part of the package. And I'm like, what, like, why is he gonna be here and that's, you know, the reasons why I haven't really got down like that because I don't know what's gonna happen when I'm with this lady. Like, lean comes with a broom handle. Who knows? Like, um, you know, I'm saying like, but that I realized that as I got older that that's a whole thing. Like people actually. Really? Yeah, like the lady. It's, I don't know what all the dude once he put the dude's like this little cowering. Dude.
Oh, like to maybe he was a cuck.
Maybe I don't know. There's all types of people have come up and said crazy stuff.
Yeah. And I'm wondering if that's because of the industry that you're in. Do you think that Well, I You probably heard like, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett have have come out saying that they have an open ish marriage. They it's not a traditional monogamous marriage. Do you think more of that actually goes on in Hollywood then people let let on
1,000% Are you kidding me? a bajillion percent. First of all, I think Hollywood gets a bad rap. Because I think the the wife of the the traditional American is very freaky. I don't know like the Will and Jada thing I heard about it. You hear about all different things and it's kind of crazy because I was on the movie when they got married enemy the state and that was a long time ago and I don't know I just see like you know, it seems like she talks about it and Will kind of response to I don't really know enough and I hate it when people put people's business out there but I guess if they're talking about it, but yeah, it seems like they have a much more I don't know it's it's pretty healthy. Seems like they're they talk about it.
Are you in a relationship right now?
Um, well, I keep it low key, right.
Like, like so many of you, Hollywood types do.
Why is that? Why do you think we do that?
Well, you know, there's so much of your life that's public. There's something to keep for yourself. Right? And also, I mean, like even me, just being on the news. I couldn't like I just wanted that by myself. And your private life is really not your public life. You know, people expect you to be a certain way. Although with you, you're so crazy anyway that like Don't people expect you to be crazy but crazy.
Do people think I'm crazy?
Like wild? Like you know, anything goes kind of guy.
Yeah, but I am. I'm open to my mind. I'm open to discuss and talk about anything, you know, but it doesn't mean I do everything. I mean, but I'm not gonna really judge anybody who doesn't. You know what I mean? Like love who you want. As long as everything is consensual and you know, nothing illegal.
Did you really not ever know or hear about the lifestyle? Like you didn't know about?
Oh, no. I've heard all types of lifestyles, but I've never heard of like it called the lifestyle.
Oh, yeah. Okay, so like you don't know the signs of swingers?
No, I like key parties,
Right, which is what everyone thinks of when they think of Swingers, but the upside down pineapple pineapples are a sign of swing or being a swinger.
You didn't know that. Oh, black rings on your right hand is a sign of a swinger anklets on women. What is it? Anklets when women wear anklets that means they're a hot wife, which means it's okay for their husband for them to sleep with other men. This is why I talk about this now because it's so intriguing and fun.
I never heard any of this.
I don't know if I believe you.
And I'm really No, I swear to God, I've never heard any of that. The only thing I've ever heard is when a woman wears a choker. There's supposed to be a black belt and giving head.
Oh, I've never heard that.
Yeah, a choker. If you were a choker, it means you're a black belt and giving head
Oh, just let me tell you that you know when you were trying to struggle for a job that seemed normal and traditional, most of the guests on my show our I mean, I've got lawyers, doctors, teachers are really freaky nurses and cops are some of the freakiest people ever.
Totally. I agree with that because they see trauma all day. So they I mean,
They’ve got this you know job where they're supposed to be responsible and all that and then you know, they go home and they just fly their freak flag. And good yeah,
I don't think people in Hollywood are more chill because we get to live a crazy life.
Yeah, you're probably right.
There’s a hot to sex, but there's also a hot in discovering it. Like a way a woman looks at you or Trader Joe's and you're reaching for the same you know, herbal mint tea and sorry about that or she moves to you know, and there's like chemistry or whatever and then you like you guys go out for coffee and there's innuendo. Innuendo is sexy. You know, obviously when it's in the moment when you get there you get I'm saying it's just like, there's a way to keep it classy. I mean, I'm an old lady then but I do love because I know classy. Women have always been the freakiest, but they're classy, but maybe I'm a piece of shit. But I think it's not nice or No,
No, no. So classy on the outside, right? Yeah, was that bad? No, that's good.
It’s everything. But it's it is it's like if a guy was like talking about oh, I ate her ate her pussy.
It’s dirty. That's like dirty. It's not sexy.
It’s like. say do what do you
It’s like locker room talk?
More than that. It's like, Yo, I was eating a pussy. And it's like, it's like, Come on, dude. Like have some. It's disrespectful. That's what it is. And it's like so but girls like I don't want to see a girl on the podcast. I was gagging on this cock. Unless it’s a porn, then I don't want to see that. I'm like the morning news. Does that make sense?
Well, yeah. I don't want to see on the morning news either.
I mean, like that's what I'm saying. So it's like you can do it all do it all but just there's an area for that. You know, you've kind of screwed me up because we're gonna have to cut the 20 minutes. We can actually have a normal podcast.
No, this this is good. This uh, this is like three different shows.
I probably gave you a lot of stuff.
This conversation continues with Jamie Kennedy on my other podcast called Leyna Nguyen Unscripted. If you think I let him off easy. I didn't. So you say your straight.
Straight, straight is gonna be the new gay.
But if you want the situation, it was sexy. And a guy wanted to blow you
Does he have a beard or no beard?
Jamie and I get really personal. We also talked about sex work and porn and what it's like to be working as a comedian and these PC canceled culture time. So find that episode over at Leyna Nguyen Unscripted. I've added a link in show notes. You can also find out where Jamie is performing next and what else he's up to at Jamiekennedy.com. Oh, and don't forget the Jizzoff.
Okay, next time on consenting adults. The biggest fear most if not all people have when they first get into the lifestyle is being found out. It happens to our next guest and they tell us how they got past it.
Yeah, the toughest part though is things like walking into the kids school or a football game. You know that my boys are playing at. That's been the toughest because I know the parents are talking and they know the parents are talking
The real fear of being outed.
Next time on consenting adults.
