Virgin Galactic turns down offer for weightless sex video

[Cue 70's porn music now] Virgin Galactic has reportedly turned down an offer of a cool $1 million to film a porn video during the five minutes of weightlessness the trip offers passengers.

A passenger on the spacecraft pays $200,000 for a ride (to space mind you). Will Whitehorn, Virgin Galactic president said, "[the offer] was $1 million, up front, for a sex-in-space movie. That was money we had to refuse, I'm afraid."

Space.com reports that Whitehorn announced at the International Astronautical Congress the offer had been declined. I'm betting that Virgin's reasoning was several fold. First, who wants to dodge the wet spot left by porn stars in zero G.

Second, it would be hard for a company with Virgin as part of its name to allow the filming of a sex video in its spacecraft. Some may wonder if five minutes of weightlessness would even be enough time to film a porn video. I'd like to think it would be enough time, in the immortal words of Bernie Mack -- "you don’t need nothin' but 2 minutes, that's a heavy weight round."

This has to be good news for the 280 customers so far that have paid Virgin Galactic deposits totaling $40 million for the trip into space. After all, there aren't many people who would want to be the next on the space ship after the porn shoot finished.

Call it an experiment, titled as such in scientific journals:

To be on the ship after the porno was filmed is your dream? :)

But yeah I dream of having sex in space some day as well. Could be a bit messy though.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.


This begs the question...

Has there been sex in space? There's been over 200 people in space, as a couple hooked up?

I would assume so... on the ISS when they are cooped up for so long, there has to be some sort of release... maybe the vacuum toilet handles the job well for the guys???

I'm just waiting for a Motel 6 to be built in space. Then you'll have a crappy video of Paris Hilton getting banged by some other loser in it circulating the net.

I'd pay to be on the same flight -

talk about your ultimate in-flight entertainment.
"would you like this starlet with your pillow, sir??"

The possibilities are endless and the sky is not even a limit!




Come on

We all know that the real reason is that they didn't offer enough money. Had it been 20 million Virgin would have folded like a card table.

I agree it wasn't enough. Offer 20 million and they'd cave. Shit if you came up to me and went "we want to flim a porno in the middle of your car lot for the sum of 5 million i'd be like "when do you start?""

Well sadly I don't know who the guy is. The first thing that came to mind was Mario, so, voilà! Maybe I am not old enough to know who he is. It's not like I watch anything from the 1970s anyways. :)

You don't know RON JEREMY? The HEDGEHOG? Ok, so I'll pretend you've never seen a porno (Internet == Porn.) Where are you from, and when did they let you out?

Super Mario was created after parts of Ron Jeremy's life. On mushrooms.
