The First Sex Tape — In Space

The sex will be ... out of this world. (Sorry, had to.)

There are many things we still need to do in space: find aliens, try to start a colony on Mars, and explore other galaxies, just to name a few. But other companies completely unrelated to science and space travel are trying to get into the space game.

Lady Gaga wants to perform the first concert in space, but that isn't the craziest plan someone has for space travel.

Pornhub wants to shoot a film there ... and needs your help. The porn company posted on Indiegogo about their plans to shoot the first pornography in space.

"Pornhub is teaming up with top-ranking adult studio, Digital Playground, in joining the ranks of Armstrong and Gagarin by pioneering a one of a kind mission to defy gravity, make history, and push the boundaries of intergalactic 'Sexploration,' by filming the first ever sex tape in space," reads the campaign.

"In doing so, we will not only be changing the face of the adult industry, we will also be chronicling how a core component of human life operates while in orbit." This sounds really ambitious (and also a little ridiculous). 

Their goal is to raise $3.4 million, and they've raised over $20,000 so far.

That's a lot of money, but space travel still isn't cheap. According to NASA, it takes about $1.7 BILLION to launch a space shuttle! Mathematically, $3.4 million is roughly 500 less than $1.7 billion. 

The campaign explains that the money will go towards training, equipment, production, insurance, and more. The stars of the sex tape will be adult actors, Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins.

There are 56 days left in the campaign, so it's a tight time constraint to raise that kind of money, especially considering the math behind these figures.

You'd think with Pornhub's creativity, they'd think of something that would cost less money — like a spoof of our favorite shows or the 2016 presidential election. Or, you know, encourage people to donate to real causes, like world hunger and cancer treatment.

But who knows? Maybe an anonymous (and rich) backer who really, REALLY, loves porn will come forward with that billion-dollar figure. I mean, what will we do without space porn?
