3-D porn cashing in on the home 3-D TV craze

Gizmodo and the Huffington Post got all hot and bothered this week with news of the first modern 3-D porn movie.
But it looks like they were a little premature.
The movie, “Kama Sutra,” by French adult film producer Marc Dorcel isn’t really a porn movie. It’s a soft-core erotic film with nudity and simulated sex acts, according to Allocine.com. But it was filmed with the intent of being shown on modern stereoscopic TVs that use active shutter eyeglasses for full 3-D HD video.
Earlier 3-D movies on home video were designed to be used with cheap 3-D glasses with colored lenses. The effect was headache-inducing video with washed out colors.
Released in Europe in February, “Kama Sutra,” isn’t the first erotic film produced in 3-D. That honor goes to the 1969 soft-core 3-D film “The Stewardesses.” Other 3-D erotic movies followed including “Love in 3-D” (1973) and “Emmanuelle 4” (1984).
According to the Internet Adult Film Database, there have been seven 3-D hardcore sex movies released to date. They include “Sexcaliber” (1982), “Screw My Wife Please” (2007), “Cummin’ at You” (2008), and “Octopussy 3-D, a XXX Parody” (2010).
All of them, Oscar worthy, I’m sure.
