In the end, the only thing that could take down the Na’vi was full frontal nudity. Among its many box office records, Avatar held the single day box office record in Hong Kong, grossing 2.63 million Hong Kong dollars on its opening day. That record has now fallen, though, as a 3D soft core porno film called 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy made HK$2.78 million (the equivalent of $340,ooo U.S.) on its opening day on just 73 screens, eventually grossing HK$17 million over its opening weekend.

3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is a remake of a 1991 film of the same name about a sexually frustrated teacher in ancient China who gets wrapped up in the harem of a new friend. Featuring full nudity and “camouflaged lovemaking” but no actual penetration, Sex and Zen is billed as “the world’s first 3-D erotic film” Learn more about it and watch the trailer after the break.

Though Sex and Zen is billed as “the world’s first 3-D erotic film,” producer Stephen Shiu, admits that a 2010 South Korean feature called Natali actually beat it to the punch. Still, he told NPR that audiences desire 3-D erotic movies:

We met people’s expectations. People have always thought that you need 3-D technology for this kind of content. So people were very curious.

Sex and Zen received a Restricted rating, meaning only people 18 and over could get in and it would need to be cut to be released in different territories. However, reports are that more than half the viewers on its opening weekend in Hong Kong were people who live in mainland China and traveled to evade the censors and see the movie.

Here in the West, pornography is an multi-billion dollar business and that’s with most of the money made on DVD and online. The market for theatrical porn is almost non-existent. However, with Sex and Zen opening not only just in China, but in Australia, South Korea, France, Italy and India in the coming months, maybe 3D will change that in some way.

Here’s the trailer for the film, which is directed by Christopher Sun Lap Key and stars Hara Saori, Suo Yukiko and Vonnie Liu.

Even the beautiful girls can’t save the blatant and terrible uses of 3D here. Would you pay to see this movie?
