I can understand 3D porn movies at home, but IMAX 3D porn? Who wants to sit through two hours of explicit 60-foot tall 3D sex scenes, no matter how engrossing the plot could be? With other people around, I mean.

But that's exactly what Stephen Shiu is proposing for his 3-D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, which is "being touted the first IMAX 3D pornographic film," according to Reuters. An erotic fantasia set in a subterranean sex lair from ancient china. It's based on a classic Chinese erotic story called The Carnal Prayer Mat, the tale of a man who meets a duke that introduces him to a world of luxurious orgies.

The director says that the $3 million film, which is being produced in Hong Kong using IMAX cameras, will be explicit:

The sex scenes are explicit and sometimes violent, but the main theme of the story is love. There will be many close-ups. It will look as if the actors are only a few centimeters from the audience.

He claims that people don't want "just erotica, they want some wow factor!" I think he may be right, but I don't know how many people would like to watch a gigantic penis waving in 3D a few centimeters from their faces. Anyway, at least the 3D glasses will also serve as protection.

Whatever happens with this, I really want him to set cameras in the IMAX theater, just to see the reactions of crowd. [Reuters]

DISCUSSION

Just because this will be shot with IMAX cameras does not mean it will be for IMAX theaters. Go watch "Batman Begins," some of the scenes were shot with an IMAX camera, but most were not. I have an older Samsund DLP 720p 46" tv, and there is a huge difference between the IMAX shots and the regular ones. First, IMAX fills the whole screen and the normal video does not, second, everything is MUCH clearer and sharper.

So - shooting in IMAX doesn't mean 50ft tall boobs - it means very high quality video. Go watch Batman Begins on blueray and see what I mean.
