Porn in space fails to reach liftoff

Love it or hate it, the porn industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that likes to push more than just moral boundaries. Hollywood movies have long been a favorite target of Porn producers, with the 2005 porn flick Pirates, a take on Pirates of the Caribbean, having a budget of over $1 million going on to be the biggest selling porn title the following year. Nothing is sacred to the porn industry, and that includes space.

Virgin Galactic, the company planning to take tourists to the edge of space in 2009/2010 have turned down a $1 million offer to shoot a “a sex-in-space movie.”

According to reports, Will Whitehorn, president of Virgin Galactic disclosed the offer at the International Astronautical Congress Tuesday. Whitehorn said simply that “That was money we had to refuse, I’m afraid.”
