The birth of 3-D porn
How a new project by Hong Kong filmmakers could influence the future of adult movies
 

“It was only a matter of time,” said Monika Bartyzel in Cinematical. 3-D technology has long been used in action and fantasy films, and now it’s coming to porn. Hong Kong filmmakers are at work on 3-D Sex and Zen, possibly the first ever 3-D adult film. The movie is scheduled to open in Hong Kong theaters in December, and it’s certain to elicit “an entirely different set of ooohs and aaahs” from audiences.

This is a “terrible” idea, said Adam Frucci in Gizmodo. Sure, there will be lots of close-ups. But supposedly “only 25% to 30% of the movie will be sex scenes,” not to mention the fact that you have to “watch it with headache-inducing glasses.” And who wants to view porn in a theater full of strangers? If this is the future, count me out.

If this is the future, said Chris Iaquinta in IGN, expect “completely demolished social lives” and “complete alienation from your loved ones.” If you think you spend a lot of time indoors playing Gears of War 2 and World of Warcraft” now, just wait until 3-D porn becomes available.
