Coming Soon: XXX in 3D


The porn industry's history as an early adopter of new technologies plays out again.

Admirers of porn star Breanne Benson will soon have the opportunity to engage in a far more immersive and intimate experience with the curvy, platinum blonde pin-up.

Earlier this month, the Southern California-based company Bad Girls in 3D unveiled a complete, in-home 3D system at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. The new technology, says producer Lance Johnson, promises to push the boundaries of what the multibillion dollar adult film entertainment industry can offer its fans.

The home theater system Johnson has come up with allows fans to watch 3D porn streamed from the company's website. The price tag: $3,999, which includes a 60-inch Mitsubishi 3D-ready HDTV, a computer, and two pairs of 3D glasses.

"We had an overwhelming reception from attendees," Johnson tells us. "Our booth was five-people deep for four days. We saw a lot of grins on people's faces."

In a fragile economy where a lot of Americans fret at night about losing their jobs, homes, or both, some consumers might wonder who would be willing to shell out that kind of cash.

Johnson says the immediate interest in his product proved otherwise. Many people are willing to make the financial sacrifice, he says, for the promise of a three-dimensional flesh flick.

"For as many people who thought it was expensive, I had just as many people asking why it was so cheap," he says.

Right now there are just four available 3D movies on the site ready for download, including Breanne Benson Session 1. But the producer promises that the company plans on maintaining "an aggressive shooting schedule over the next few weeks."

Johnson's company has tapped into twin businesses that seem perfectly complimentary: 3D entertainment and porn.

Right now, interest in three-dimensional television is heating up. A number of electronics companies are marketing new 3D-enabled TV sets, and Hollywood studios are making box office-busting 3D movies like Avatar.

The Wall Street Journal reports that at least four new 3D television networks are in the works as companies are looking to hook more Americans on the attractions of the technology.

DirecTV will launch two 3D channels and a 3D video-on-demand service, Discovery Communications, Sony (SNE), and Imax are forming a joint venture to launch one in 2011, and ESPN (DIS) will launch a network later this year.
