3-D porn is on the way

The adult entertainment industry is quick to respond to the latest news (consider the upcoming satire “Tiger’s Got Wood”) and technology (home video and the Internet). So it should come as no surprise that the porn industry is interested in 3-D TV.
At the Consumer Electronics Show Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas, TV makers announced plans to roll out 3-D television later this year. They also plan to sell 3-D Blu-ray Disc players. Broadcasters, including ESPN and the Discovery Channel, announced plans for 3-D channels.
Over at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which runs concurrently with CES, a San Diego-based company, Bad Girls in 3D, was hawking a 3-D entertainment package for $4,000. It includes a 60-inch 3-D HDTV, a media PC, proprietary software, two pairs of 3-D glasses and a monthly subscription for 3-D adult content streamed over the Internet.
The market for 3-D erotic video is not new, but has a limited history. The adult content produced in 3-D to date has been pretty bad, says Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of adult studio Vivid Entertainment.
In September, Pure Play Media released “Tommy Gunn's Cummin’ At You!” in 3-D on DVD.
Lance Johnson, a producer with Bad Girls in 3D, told PC World that the potential for 3-D adult entertainment was proven by the 1969 soft-core 3-D film “The Stewardesses.” Produced on a budget of just over $100,000, it went on to gross more than $27 million, according to Wikipedia.
Other 3-D movies of a sexual nature include “Love in 3-D” (1973) and “Emmanuelle 4” (1984).
