poonography

Here are a few representative examples:

This is all about poonography. Cheap and nasty, high end and classy. It’s all for fapping in the end.
discussion

Jennifer Aniston. Biggest celebrity slut that isn’t known for poonography.
debate

To sum it up, some thick heads with phony degrees think that video games and poonography are making men ignore their women and jobs.

Go to your local Poonography shop and peruse pretty much anything and you’ll see what I mean.
answer

“Poon”, short for “poontang” (from the French putain, prostitute) refers to sexual intercourse, or to a woman seen as a possible source of sexual gratification, as in “I need to get me some poon!”

It’s hard to know whether “poonography” is an eggcorn in any specific case, as opposed to just wordplay, but the pronunciation similarity and obvious meaning connection make it very plausible to me that it’s an eggcorn for some.
