tekgoblin writes "Christopher Sun of Hong Kong is directing a new porn movie that will actually be in 3-D. The movie is being called 3-D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy and will be the first 3-D IMAX porn movie. From the article: 'First out of the gates, the soft porn Hong Kong film comes as the stricken industry, hit hard by free Internet porn in recent years, turns to 3-D as a potential money-spinner, following on from the success of Hollywood blockbusters such as James Cameron's Avatar.'"

          Yup. The film that is most widely cited as the first 3D pornographic movie is Hot Skin [wtf-film.com] from 1977, predating the film in the linked article by over 30 years. It also featured some comparatively famous porn stars of the day, such as Serena and John Holmes.

    • No kidding, much less in an IMAX theatre. I was under the impression that all IMAX's were in Museums and learning centers. Then again, maybe they just mean it is being shot in super-high resolution.
    • In fact, the movie Taxi Driver has taken on an almost surreal additional undertone in the years since its release because of scenes in the cinema where pornographic movies are playing, particularly when Travis takes Betsy to one. The whole setup--people calmly watching a sex film in an almost deserted theatre--is so bizarre that it gives the impression of these scenes being some hallucination in Travis' mind, similar to the "Are you talking to me" scene. This colours all kinds of scenes such as the one with

      Don't worry, this is a Hong Kong cat-III movie. Which roughly means: female nudity fully OK, male nudity except full frontal, suggestion of sexual intercourse OK but nothing explicit there. Anything beyond that is simply illegal here.

      Furthermore this is a remake of an erotic cult classic "sex and zen", and at least two of the lead actresses (actors don't really count of course) are from the JAV industry. It's hard to find Hong Kong actresses who willingly bare it all.

    • This is a Category III film, Hong Kong's version of Nc17, just simulated sex, no money shot or actual penetration of any kind. Technically that stuff is illegal in HK.

      For what it's worth, these films are not really porn in the conventional sense, they are arousing in parts (such as Amy Yip in the hottub in the first movie) and disgusting in parts (such as the equally beautiful and equally naked Shu Qi draining life energy in the second). Sex and Zen is entertaining, funny, sexy and a bit scary. It has lot

        Are those by chance red-cyan goggles? Then they might in fact do something for you, by letting you already experience porn in all four dimensions! Pull on your goggles, and off you go here [3dp.cz] (just click ok) or to your a nearest torrent vendor.

    • I think they found the easiest way to close/revoke license of an IMAX theatre. If you can't make money with your IMAX technology theater and want it to be revoked, just announce this movie. A poster would be enough. Perhaps you won't have to pay a fee to Sony for early termination, that is the genius part :)

      Movie business, especially high end IMAX etc. aren't really youtube. You can't upload everything and expect them to play it. Wonder if that guy really have any clue about the business side of things?

        Because by being more "pleasurable" [to use your own words] than a restaurant outing, the law prevents you from doing it in public :-)

        Paying for it, publicly or not, is also a crime in most localities.

          Sure, but that's no reason to "[worry] about our future as a species"... well, okay, maybe the ridiculous laws surrounding sex are.

        Because if you pay for a meal you actually get the food. Pay for porn and you don't actually get the sex. It's more like paying to watch other people eating.

        Can't you think of a car analogy instead?

          You realize this is incredibly popular. Cooking shows have been popular for a long time. Food Network is very successful. A show like Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives is not much more than watching a guy eat tons of food and talk about how wonderful it is. If that doesn't fit the analogy perfectly, I don't know what does.

          We are hard-wired to love the Four Fs. Feeding, fleeing, fighting, and fucking. And we are more than happy to watch video of all of them.

          It's paying to watch cars go around and around a racetrack. Exciting at the beginning, but it gets pretty repetitive.
        • by Abcd1234 (188840)

          Pay for porn and you don't actually get the sex.

          So? It's still pleasurable, just like eating alone can be enjoyable, while eating with others is enjoyable for different reasons. Either way, its a human drive being satiated. And it's *certainly* nothing that should trigger a concern for the human species.

          Heck, and that's entirely precluding those couples who use pornography as an element in their sexual relationship.

        • You are assuming that watching is not a desirable action. Mirror neurons in your brain simulate the actions you view so basically to your brain eating and watching eating cause the same neurological responses. It is a necessary reaction for humans or we are unable to comprehend the feelings that other people have. What is worrying is that society has taboos in it to make us feel that if something is enjoyable it is inherently bad for us.

    I prefer to go into city porn theaters. I take one of those 'super soaker' type water guns and fill it with white hand lotion (I prefer Jergens). I sit in the back and start 'shooting my load', as it were, all over the crowd. Oddly, very few of them seem to mind.

      Egg white.

      An egg white diluted with a tablespoon of water makes for far more realistic mock semen.

      And if realistic flavor is also important, then add a tiny drop of chlorine bleach.

    It's been my understanding that IMAX [imax.com] is really fussy about licencing their equipment and technology, and find it highly unlikely that they would allow its use for porn.

    Of course we live in an age when you can buy an "IMAX" dvd - surely one of the more oxymoronic claims since "HD" radio came on the scene.

      I don't see a problem. DVDs play in iMacs (which nowadays are almost as big as TVs), and "Hybrid Digital Radio" broadcasts are a hybrid of analog and digital.

      In Thailand, pornography, dildos, etc are illegal. If you're caught with pornography you can get arrested or fined. So, basically this film would never make it here.

  • I'm willing to bet this one is going "straight to video" and as soon as several 3D pr0n releases appear, my guess is that 3D television sales will see a jump. And why not, pr0n was leading the charge on both VHS and The Internet... why not 3D televisions!

    Personally, I'm shocked that this movie wasn't made long before Avatar. It doesn't make sense.

    (assumption that 1080p 35 mm, more or less, and that the IMAX flick is 70 mm)

Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
