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.
