Pornhub Wants Your Money to Make a Porno in Space

By Chris Mills on at

There are videos of people shagging while skydiving. There are videos of people shagging in scuba gear (I’m just assuming here). And if Pornhub and Indiegogo have their way, soon you might get to see sextronauts (yup!) making zero-gravity love.

The sex-video site’s NSFW vision is to send up two actors and a crew in a shuttle to make a movie, sometime in late 2016. To make this happen, Pornhub has launched an Indiegogo campaign, hoping to raise some $3.4 million (£2.2m), with most of the costs going towards buying out all the seats on some kind of private spacecraft (no word on which company), making special stain-proof spacesuits, and adapting camera gear and poor lighting so that it works equally well in space.

But this isn’t just some begging handout: in return for backing Pornhub’s campaign, you get rewards. These include:

  • A Certificate of Endorsement for you to hang over the fireplace in your sex dungeon ($1)
  • A Pornhub swag bag, including a Pornhub Space Program™ T-shirt ($100)
  • An invite to the sex tape launch party! ($10,000)
  • A spacesuit and underwear from one of the sextronauts, only worn once ($150,000)

One plus point for Pornhub is that it’s going all-in on the campaign, using Indiegogo’s fixed funding option. That means it only gets the money if the campaign reaches the rather large fund goal; otherwise, it’s all returned to donors. So, this might just be a publicity stunt, but at least it’s an honest one.

And, of course, if you don’t feel like giving actual money to the campaign, Pornhub would like to remind you that by watching videos on Pornhub.com, you’ll be indirectly contributing to funding the project. One quick wank for mankind and all that. [Indiegogo]
