Porn is the key to 3D HDTV expansion

Yuma-Asami-6Porn. Now that I have your attention, let me explain why porn is an essential component to getting 3D HDTV’s into the homes of Japan’s consumers.

Porn stars Mika Kayama and Yuma Asami (pictured above), two of Japan’s most popular porn stars, will star in the country’s very first DVDs made specifically for 3D televisions. Takashi Kadokura, an economist from BRICs Research Institute, says Japan made $1.2 billion in adult film sales in 2009. Porn sales account for more than a fourth of total video sales in Japan. There’s no question that 3D-specific porn would go a long way in supporting the transition to 3D television.

The two adult films will be released on June 7 and 19, 2010 respectively. They be available around the same time Sony starts selling its first 3D enabled Bravia televisions in Japan on June 10, 2010. Sony representatives would not comment on whether the company feels adult movies will help sell its televisions. I can’t say I blame Sony. The last thing the company wants is to be associated with the seediness of the adult film industry.

Sony initially said in 2007 it would not allow porn to be mass distributed on Blu-ray. Today there are adult films available in the Blu-ray format. The bottom line here is sex sells, get used to it.
