Is 3D Porn Coming Soon?

Ever since the huge popularity of Avatar, many aficionados of smut have been wondering whether 3D porn of Avatar quality is on the horizon.  The box office success of Avatar has greatly piqued the interest of Tinto Brass — the famed director of cult porn flick Caligula.  Avatar prompted Brass to immediately embark upon production of a top quality 3D porn flick — but is he ahead of his time?

In turns out, that although it is pervasive, sales of pornography have actually been declining.  With so much for free, why pay for it?  It is akin to hookers having to compete with a city full of nymphomaniac sluts.  Tickets for Avatar in most major locales were in excess of $15.  In the current economic climate, are guys going to pay that for an enhanced version of what they can enjoy for free in the privacy of their own homes?

Avatar has raised the standards and expectations when it comes to 3D content.  An adult film employing inferior technology or one playing in a theater utilizing knock-off sub par glasses will only serve to kill it in its tracks.  It would get horrible reviews and no one would buy the expensive tickets entailed with a 3D movie.  3D is now a big budget affair, and in order to justify the requisite investment in production, widespread distribution channels are needed.  Most theater chains are less than thrilled at the prospect of hosting porn flicks — even high end 3D ones.  Without venues to show the film, the necessary revenues can not be achieved.

The prospects of home adoption of the required technology — at least over the short term — are dubious.  How many people are going to buy the expensive glasses and 3D capable televisions?  In the current economy, not enough to justify the expense of production.  At some point, porn will certainly emerge into 3D — however, unfortunately, it won’t be anytime soon.
