The Hong Kong 3D erotic film features Japanese adult actress Yukiko Suo.  (Source: 520de)
You could say Stephen Shiu is the James Cameron of porn

Following Avatar's unprecedented gross of over $2.74B USD, much of which was driven by higher-priced 3D ticket sales, many filmmakers trying to make the jump to 3D filming.  Apparently the craze has even tickled the fancy of adult film industry.

Something about the allure of watching a 3D adult feature rubbed top Chinese erotic filmmaker Stephen Shiu the right way.  Much like James Cameron, director of
Avatar, Shiu was the owner of an impressive 90s box office record.  Mr. Shiu's film Sex and Zen grossed over $2.6M USD, to become Hong Kong's highest box office grossing adult film of the decade.

And like Mr. Cameron, Mr. Shiu decided to ride on the premise that what worked in 2D would work even better in 3D.  Filming of his new film
3-D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is currently wrapping up.

The film, set for release in May, cost $3.2M USD to film.  It is loosely based on the Chinese classic erotic thriller 
The Carnal Prayer Mat, a 1600s work by Chinese playwright Li Yu.  It stars top Japanese adult actresses Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara.

The Sunday Morning Post describes the film follows a young male protagonist who after being introduced to a land of erotica by a powerful duke, comes to realize his ex-wife is the love of his life. 

Christopher Sun, the film's director, comments, "Somehow when you're doing a 3-D movie you always want to make an impressive image because the viewers ... are going to buy tickets with double or even triple the ticket price to get into a world they've never seen before.  It's not just erotica, they want some 'wow factor!  The sex scenes are explicit and sometimes violent, but the main theme of the story is love."

Mr. Shiu is convinced that audiences will be hard-pressed not to see such a refined adult title.  And the competition for 3D porn isn't exactly stiff yet.  At this point while some are considering a jump to 3D, only two other major parties have announced plans to pay the high costs associated with making a 3D adult film.

U.S.-based Hustler is currently working on a 3D porno based on 
Avatar (which is somewhat ironic, considering that Avatar itself reportedly has a long and graphic deleted sex scene).  And Italian director Tinto Brass is working on a 3D re-filming of his 1979 erotic film Caligula.

At least its chinese

American porn quality is at an all time low. Unlike the glory days of porn where a story was at least attempted, today all we get are the same tired formulas with the same amateur actresses. They meet, followed by some witless banter, then a 15 minute BJ from 60 angles, then 10 seconds of cunnilingus, then front and back riding, doggy style and if there's time, some missionary. Then he blows her face off and its over. There are a few variations on the theme, but they are mere variations. Internet porn has become just like Internet Journalism, poor quality and too much of it. Just like reality TV.

French porn is pretty good actually.

Anyway WHY has the top post been up rated? Those "glory days" of porn were the worst days of porn... who watches porn for the story?? come on! LOL. There should be NO story at all in porn, and most dont even bother these days... and you know why? because they finally realised that cheesy very bad acting and bad story lines is not what people want to see. Even if it was good acting for once... again, who would actually watch porn for the story? Porn is more popular than ever these days, and not just because of the net, but because it's actually worth watching now as they just get down to it.

Good point.
Because I read the articles and watch the movie for the plot.

Its a sad time now because porns used to have such great plots years ago many actresses could use to springboard their career. What would we ever do with porn now that it has none of the filler?

Oh... wait...

Oh cmon now. If you want to see a slut get banged, there's so much of that to go around on the internet you'll be busy for years. Considering i got internet when i was 12 and spent my puberty partly online, i've seen my fair share.

And now it simply doesn't arouse me anymore. Don't get me wrong, actually banging a slut would get me aroused, but from porn i just expect a bit more.

There is a certain art to porn. I once saw an interview with ron jeremy where he said that in the early days of his career, he used to crack jokes during sex. Very soon the director came up to him and told him taht wasn't working. The acting comes before the sex but during the sex you shut up. Today i turn the sound off while watching porn because there's hardly a single movie where the actresses aren't talking dirty constantly.

say what you will, porn isn't what it used to be.

Wife + physics + gravity = high sales in 3d porn.


I don't get it...

I don't get it. What exactly is the point in seeing an adult film in a big theater? Do they sell pocket packs of Kleenex at the concession stand and pay the clean-up crew extra, or does everyone just pretend to be classy and sneakily try to get a seat way in the back (and what happens when the back rows fill up?!)

Assuming not everyone goes the way of Pee-Wee Herman, what is the point in going to see an adult film in a theater? Do people actually enjoy watching sex simply to watch it, or are they just holding it (no pun intended) until they get home?

In truth, I don't want to know the answer to any of these questions. It's just one of those things that never made sense to me, especially in an age where porn already dominates a majority of the Internet.

BRB, going to see if they have Debbie Does Dallas up on Hulu yet.

I wonder if the Japanese version

will have the mosaic in 2D or 3D?

Its a HONG KONG film, so it will not be censored.

Japanese makes more porn than any one else... perhaps that is why they are the least violent country in the world vs those certain countries that outlaw porn.

So HK/China, etc get their porn fix from Japan... the quality is generally better.

I hope that they recycle the 3D glasses between shows! On second thought, maybe they should just be destroyed.




Actually

Although the 3D is probably much better in this new film, there is a 3D adult feature from 1977 called Hot Skin In 3D. It is quite funny.




Careful kids....

You could poke you're eye out!

Dude... watch where you're pointing that thing!

Ugggh I think i've just been slimed!

All phrases that shot through my head as I read the article. LOL. Looks like I picked up my Samsung LED 3D tv just in time...

Anyone see the begining scene from American Pie Naked Mile? Just wondering what that scene would have been like had Stiffler's dad had a 3d tv.




Irony

So their government blocks all sorts of stuff, including porn, to "protect" their citizens. In turn, their citizens step up the worldwide porn game and bring us 3D porn. That worked out well.
