PornHub crowdfunding campaign aims to film the first sex tape in space

  1. We’ve seen some pretty adventurous crowdfunding campaigns over the past few years but the latest may take the cake. PornHub, the world’s largest adult content site, is seeking to raise a whopping $3.4 million on Indiegogo to produce the first sex tape in space.

    As the company’s painfully cheesy / creepy pitch video details, the plan is to send porn stars Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins into orbit where they'll film the movie. They’re calling the project “Sexploration” and the performs, well, they’re the sextronauts.

    Aside from a great pitch (which is clearly lacking here), a good crowdfunding campaign needs to have quality perks to attract funding.

    A donation of just $10 is all that’s needed to guarantee you’ll get access to the finished film 24 hours before the rest of the world sees it. Other reward tiers include subscriptions to the actors’ websites ($50), a shout-out in the bloopers reel of the film ($500), a lunch date with either star ($5,000), VIP access to the sex tape launch party ($10,000) and a space suit worn by the actor of your choice ($150,000).

    PornHub notes that roughly 60 percent of the money raised will go to making the flight to space happen which includes training, suits for the crew and so on. A little over 20 percent will go to the overall cost of producing the film while the remaining money will be used to pay the actors and ship out perks.

    Any bets on whether or not the campaign will get the funding it needs?

    It's gonna blow. And sextronuts is a better spelling for such mental case.

    The only fun in sex at 0-G is on a plane in a vertical dive, to see if they can finish it before the plane hits the ground.

    This has stupid written all over it. Additionally, you know how hard it would be to have sex in 0-G? Pretty freakin hard. Back in the day, NASA was debating on someone having a babe in space and one of the parts they had to figure out was how will they conceive. Basically, it was in a Velcro bed.

    The whole movie would be a blooper.
  4. I do appreciate how you lead a porn comment with "it's gonna blow." Well played.

    Wouldn't they acchieve the same expected result in a 0g room, or on one of those crazy planes that get to do the same?

    And it's going to suck, like in... vacum suck... because in space... and porn... you know

    I saw a clip on this in a show on the discovery channel. Basically, the whole process was a problem to be solved, not something anyone thought would be cool or interesting. And someone did actually build a velco suit that unzipped in the front.

    I'm guessing the whole thing is just to get us to see their name. There's a reason they haven't done this in a zero-G plane... cause it'd be exactly as you put it... a whole film of bloopers. In fact they probably have tried, but just threw out the video after watching how ridiculous it was.
    They put Kate Upton in a Zero-G plane... but you may not have heard of it. It didn't exactly make the news because it also was pretty dumb.

    They just film it in a no-gravity chamber and use the money for CGI.
  10. Being in space looking down on earth and out to endless space gives you perspective and all astronauts describe it as an humbling experience. the place of man in creation his purpose and his will to learn more about the universe he lives in.

    thinking about summing that into making a filthy porno is sad

    "Many people seem to think NASA has secret training rooms in which gravity can be turned off. Aside from the long-running Anti Gravity column in Scientific American, however, there is no such thing as antigravity."

    So please stop with the ridiculous suggestions of filming this in a Zero G room, it just doesn't exist. The way NASA simulates Zero G is with Pools, high tech eh? But it gets the job done.

    Now if the intention was to sound equally as ridiculous as the idea of filming a sex tape in space, then carry on.

    It's a porno, it has to have some semblance of a plot and the suits are for that, don't worry though they will be in the scene for probably 45 seconds.
