World's first 3D porno now filming -

The world's first 3D porn film has begun filming, set for a May 2011 release in Asia.

The film is called 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy and is produced by Stephen Shiu. Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara, Japanese porn stars which the bible thumping puritans here at TechEye have never heard of before, are confirmed as the main characters.

The movie is supposedly based on The Carnal Prayer Mat, a classic Chinese erotic comedy written by Li Yu in the Qing dynasty. The film will, surprise surprise, include “very graphic sex scenes”.

Shiu has secured deals with adult TV stations in Hong Kong and is negotiating with others in Japan and Korea. He has also been approached for possible distribution in Europe and the US.

3D has become the permanent "next big thing" ever since Avatar's release last year, but its potential in the adult industry has not been fully explored. Nuts did a 3D issue in May of this year, while Playboy did a 3D centrefold in its June edition. A full 3D pornographic film, however, has not been created until now. Some believe the technology will put the adult industry to the top of the pack again.
