The 3-D Porno That's Beating Avatar in China (Totally SFW)

A centuries-old romance novel turned film is a breakaway hit in Hong Kong's 3-D theaters. Check out the trailer.


Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is the new craze in Hong Kong that's being billed as "the world's first 3-D erotic film." Far from your typical smut, however, the movie is actually based on a Chinese novel from 1657 called The Carnal Prayer Mat, a story about "a brilliant young student who devotes himself to a life of pure eroticism."

Perhaps owing to its history, Sex and Zen is a hit in Hong Kong, showing on 73 screens and earning the equivalent of $2.2 million since its debut last week. According to the BBC, the skin flick even had a bigger first day than the city's last 3-D blockbuster, Avatar, by about $20,000.
