In 2005 a documentary was made by James Guardino about Goldstein, titled Porn King: The Trials of Al Goldstein.

Al regularly rants in his blog, maintained in association with the Adult search engine, Booble.
In late March 2007, Al launched his presidential campaign for the 2008 election. Campaign slogans include "Support Al, He likes it on top".
On August 29, in response to the Larry Craig scandal, he wrote a post in which he declared himself bisexual and said he'll be "the first presidential candidate to admit to sucking cock and the first to turn fully gay mid-campaign."
However, in a presidential campaign video posted on YouTube, Al admits he is straight and has been married five times. He did state in the same video that he supports gay marriage.
