3-D Adult Entertainment Unvailed in Las Vegas

Now I’ve heard everything but I guess it was only a matter of time.


What will $4,000 upfront money and $20 a month there after buy you? A 60-inch 3-D television that has a compact computer server, and shutter glasses that synch with the screen to trick eyes into viewing in 3-D was unvailed at an AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas over the weekend by Bad Girls.

AFP. LAS VEGAS, Nevada — A 3-D mania stoked by stunning new television sets and the blockbuster film “Avatar” is being embraced by a porn industry notorious for helping new technologies access homes.
Bad Girls In 3D used an AVN Adult Entertainment Expo that ended Sunday in Las Vegas to unveil an unprecedented online library exclusively in the format and a first-of-a-kind “turnkey digital 3-D viewing system.”
“For several decades, the adult entertainment industry has driven adoption of every significant new entertainment delivery system – the VHS home-video craze in the 1980s, the satellite television mania in the 1990s and the present day Internet,” said Bad Girls producer Lance Johnson.
“2010 and beyond will be all about 3-D.”
Adult expo attendees wearing “active shutter glasses” grinned as they immersed themselves in a Bad Girls video displayed in 3-D on a giant high-definition television.
The firm’s package consists of a 60-inch (152-centimeter) 3-D television; a compact computer server, and shutter glasses that synch with the screen to trick eyes into viewing in 3-D.
The Bad Girls system is priced at 4,000 dollars, and a subscription to the online video library costs 20 dollars a month, according to a woman at the booth that gave only her first name, Samantha.
The potential of 3-D in adult entertainment was proven decades ago by a soft-core 3-D film “The Stewardess,” which raked in 27 million dollars in theaters during the two years after its release in 1969, according to Johnson.

Vatican can be sued for priest sex abuse: US court

A US appeals court has ruled that the Vatican can be sued for the sex abuse committed by US priests.

The Vatican had tried to block a class action lawsuit alleging that it orchestrated a cover-up of sexual abuse by clergy with the argument that it was protected by laws granting sovereign states immunity from most US civil proceedings.

Central to the case is a 1962 Vatican mandate unearthed in 2003 which outlined a policy of “strictest” secrecy regarding allegations of sexual abuse by clergy and threatened those who spoke out with excommunication.

A federal appeals court ruled that the case brought by three Kentucky men can proceed because exceptions in the law allow the Vatican to be held liable for the actions of church employees acting within the scope of their employment in the United States.
