article imagePornHub launches crowd-funding campaign to shoot porn in space

Adult entertainment giant, PornHub has created a crowd-funding campaign to shoot the world's first-ever sex film in space. Using Indiegogo, the company plans to raise $3.4 million, with blast off planned for 2016.
Having a sexual encounter in space is enough to tickle anyone's fancy, but enjoying the climatic event in zero-gravity swells the imagination, conjuring up all sorts of erotic ideas.
But the big question may be, is it science? Corey Price, the vice president of PornHub says, “This will be a grand experiment in learning how intercourse works after penetrating the Earth’s atmosphere."
The campaign called "Sexploration," is planning on raising $3.4 million to make a porno in space, featuring two of its biggest stars, Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins as astronauts. After taking six months of actual astronaut training, the couple will attempt "one small tryst for mankind," filmed by a six-person camera crew.
The action will take place 68 miles above the Earth, using a shuttle service, such as Virgin Galactic. There is a possible problem in getting a private space shuttle company to agree to allow a shuttle to be used for the filming, let alone clean up the mess afterwards.
While SpaceX and Virgin Galactic did not respond to press inquiries, Pornhub's press representative, Mike Williams insists the company is currently talking with a number of private space travel companies. "Because of the nature of our endeavor, we aren’t really able to disclose the details of those talks just yet for fear that that would risk unnecessary fallout from the aforementioned parties," Williams is quoted as saying by the Huffington Post.
Athena Andreadis, a biologist with the University of Massachusetts Medical School told SPACE.com in 2011, "Sex is very difficult in zero gravity, apparently, because you have no traction and you keep bumping against the walls." She added, "Think about it: you have no friction, you have no resistance."
Lovia is said to have made an "unprintable" comment about the endeavor, even though she is eyeing a great money shot for her space-antics. “We don’t know if any astronauts have had sex in space, so we’d be the first to publicly admit it," she said. The 26-year-old says she aslo has her eye on another endeavor, perhaps deep sea exploration.
Fellow astronaut, Sins, and we don't know his age, is considered an “industry legend” with more than eight years experience in the porn trade. In a rather cheesy video promoting the venture, Sins says, “We're gonna make porn in space!”
