Penthouse To Launch World’s First 3D Porn Channel

Just announced today, Penthouse is creating a 3D Porn Channel. I guess everyone really is jumping on the 3D wagon. Guys that “use” Penthouse will now have remember to put glasses on their before they “get off”. Imagine as a teen, If your parents walking in on you masturbating isn’t embarrassing enough, imagine it happening while you’re wearing 3D glasses. Marc Bell, CEO of FriendFinder Networks, explains the venture:

“We started shooting in 3D this past summer, and have significantly invested to perfect 3D production quality. Consumer excitement for 3D content is high, and Penthouse is the one studio that can rely on its broad expertise to deliver 3D in a manner unmatched by any other branded entertainment company.”

Penthouse must have wanted to make their own big announcement ASAP, as the news comes the day after 84 year old Hugh Hefner shared his big news. He announced that he had successfully taken Playboy Enterprises Inc. private, buying out all the other shareholders. Penthouse will be launching the 3D porn channel in the second quarter of 2011. The new channel will compliment their existing HD channel which covers over 30 platforms in more than 15 countries.

I recently informed you about Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition having a 3D video to go along with it, for the first time ever this year. Sony said they were confident that the 3D television would catch on, and I’m starting to think they are right. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. Imagine having to keep extra 3D glasses for guests coming over to watch TV? It feels like we are so close to completely zoning out of reality, and stepping completely into virtual reality, as in the SciFy Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica.
