Japanese adult films support Blu-Ray

Japanese adult films support Blu-Ray Adopters of the Blu-Ray devices and PS3 owners alike will be able to rejoice in the near future as the Japanese porn industry will soon produce high definition media for all your adult film needs.
In the past, Sony and its major partner Disney had rejected the US adult film industry's proposal for adult content on their media because they felt there was an image to uphold. At this year's Adult Treasures Expo 2007 in Chiba, Japan however, Sony began offering more technical support for the adult film industry.

Until now, there had only been a handful of companies with rights to stamp out Blu-ray media, but a Japanese company which was in charge with a great deal of the early release Blu-Ray discs said it has partnered with a Taiwan company to produce much more media for this purpose.

This move could prove to be a decent push in the Blu-Ray camp who has appeared to be losing the race to HD-DVD. Following a fatal mistake Sony made back in the days of Betamax, their refusal to endorse the US adult film industry effectively led to the demise of the superior beta format over VHS, which had endorsed porn. With HD-DVD already on the adult bandwagon right from the gates, along with cheaper production costs and a growing list of supporters, Blu-Ray will need all the help it can get to remain in this high-definition battle.

There have already been ten Japanese adult films pressed onto Blu-Ray DVD and a company by the name of Total Media Agency Inc. says its ready to release at least one movie per month during the remainder of this year. This is in contrast to the lone single Japanese adult film available on HD-DVD.

Price also seems to be an issue in taking the Japanese market. HD-DVD comes in a bit higher than discs released on Blu-Ray, however the HD-DVD camp justifies the price hike due to the fact that whatever HD-DVD you buy also comes with a DVD version of it. This is to suffice those who want a next-gen version of the movie, but might not yet have the hardware to play it.

Dispite the head start of HD-DVD and it's US adult film industry backing, a lot of film producers have yet to make good on their promises of releasing content. Early on, the adult film industry supported HD-DVD because of a cheaper production cost, but representatives have said they will produce on whatever format makes sense at the time. Its quite possible that this move by Sony could prove to be a step in the right direction towards getting Blu-Ray back in the thick of the fight.

idk what kinda jap porn ur watching. because the ones ive seen arent like that. =]

I haven't seen any recent Japanese porn, but I've got to agree with plutonash, all that I've seen is substandard to US porn. The American porno films seems to have a greater variety of locations, actors, camera positions, etc.

Porn is so rawnchy, I have always preferred Blu-Ray because of the space it has. This doesnt effect my decision to buy a PS3 at all.

Porn is disgusting...

Porn is porn you either "get" it or you do not LOL

But yes mainstream Japaneses porn is censored, hardcore stuff is treated unfairly and shuffled off to the sidelines, at least it is last I checked.

Its like the bleeping of words in a hentai game or in henati (pron animation) you have to wonder WTF is going on with their system that they would bleep stuff out of adult metaril.....

I also notice US porn is highly staged and they use lubes a bit to much and you NEVER see a female get wet without the use of lube, at least the Japaneses focus a bit more on the body and "areas" than the USs porn "when the male is done the scene ends" crap...

Who would have ever thought that we we be discussing the technical merits of porn here on AfterDawn?

So, being that I can buy 4 and 6 hour Standard Definition DVD's, does this mean that I can now buy the 12+ hour Mega Cum Spectacular on Blu Ray?

@Zippy

That is because most US porn is made with the male focus in mind. You have a few directors out there such as Andrew Blake and Candida Royale who set their bar a little higher. They try to make a more stylized story/fantasy setting. Candida (Director) makes her material with more of the female focus in mind. She used to be a mainstream porn actress, but is one of the few in the industry that is trying to change the whole perspective.

You have those such as Tracy Lords who deny the industry and the things that go on there, and then there are those such as Jenna Jameson who really raise public awareness of the whole industry.

Ya mostly why I hate "pron" its must to male focused I am far mroe infested int the female body and its workings yet I get a bunch of dick heads roaming around for pssy its sad really,while I am not a great fan of porn of any kind I do dislike most US porn because it likes the most depth (pun intented :P)

Frankly Story has no place in porn I am sorry but.....foreplay however is a whole other thing :P

I'd kill for some good striping/female 1on1 vids but it seems no one can think past their head to make them >>

1530.7.2007 20:06

I remember reading somewhere else that this was the case that porn was going to decide which format was going to win the format war. I think we have a winner. :)

some how I doubt censored porn will do that (mainstream japanase porn is censored) and I doubt the non mainstream stuff can get BR license so easily.

ah well they bypassed some red tape to get the "press rolling"..nice desu :P

Please stop with all the buns, oops I mean puns, You guys are killing me.
One thing I will say though, I've seen a few pornos that were shot in HD format(watched them with my upconverting DvD player) and damm lets just say, when you've been ridden hard and often things start to get nasty looking. I can't go into too much detail, but I think you know what I mean.
Peace all

With a name like Blu-Ray, it's only tight fitting that it goes head in hand with Blu-Movies.


It's better to die than to live without hope...

Life is about making mistakes and paying for them...

@morguex

That "brings up" an angle that I hadn't thought of before. Seeing the HD stuff on Discovery channel is really a good way of selling the whole High Definition idea.

If some of the porn that I've seen (and I've seen my share) looks that crisp, I wont say that I'll get turned off of porn, but I really might have to raise my standards to watching reputable studio porn.

Stuff like Black Street Hookers, Little Latin Angels and the like just don't seem like they would stand up to the likes of Vivid.

Wow, this thread has really been about "self discovery," if I'm actually thinking about raising my standards in regards to watching porn, something isn't right.

studio porn is overly dry and scripted, the "B" class stuff is not much better but it has a higher chance of being less......... dry and scripted LOL

Yes, but with Studio porn, you have a greater chance of not seeing something like a band-aid on someones ass. That demands an instant press of the next chapter button.

I agree that the smaller labels put out better quality as far as the action is concerned, but the studios have the advantage with the desirable actresses and slightly higher values in regards to what the camera can see.
