Bloomberg BusinessWeek says Japanese pornography distributors are releasing the first original programming on digital discs for 3D TVs just as Sony is about to release its first 3D TVs later this month. Porn stars Mika Kayama and Yuma Asami, the top actresses of adult-movie maker S1 No.1Style, will star in the country’s first 3D discs, “3D X Mika Kayama” on June 7 and “3D X Yuma Asami” on June 19.

analyst Yuji Fujimori of Barclays Capital in Tokyo says 3D porn discs could  trigger the success of the new 3D TVs.
“It’s worth paying attention to the move because it’s lack of content that’s hindering expansion.”

“I want to try it out,” said Satoshi Miyazaki, 33, who pays about 2,000 yen a month to watch adult cable channels. “I need something dramatic to justify replacing my TV. This could be the motivation.”

Sales of adult videos in Japan represented about 30% of the overall video market in the nation, according to Takashi Kadokura, an economist who runs Yokohama- based BRICs Research Institute. But the Japanese porn industry has been in a 15% decline since 2006 due to the recession and online porn.

The industry is hoping 3D can revive the disc market.

It is a know fact that the porn industry has always driving adoption rate for a lot of technological mediums. See how this works for 3D and Sony
