The Jedi Hurtaholics Archive was an archive for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace hurt/comfort fanfiction. Stories were sorted by author, title, rating, date and subject. The three subjects were Qui-Gon stories (All Qui-hurt, all the time.), Obi-Wan stories (Padawan...pain...close enough.) and Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan stories (Double the pain, double the fun.).

The Site was a member of The Prequel Erotica SiteRing and the Star Wars Slash webring. It also was a member of The FanFic Archives Webring.[1] The archive was hosted by Squidge.org.

Following an incident in 2001 where the site was listed as the Awful Link of the Day at Something Awful because of the homosexual content, the archivist got a Cease & Desist letter from Lucasfilm and the archive was shut down.
