So this dude emails me with a question: he is puzzled why the hell I bother making 3D erotic comics about vanilla meat-and-potatoes sex, while there's already so much of that available in the regular porn industry. His argument was that with 3DX, you have the means to go extreme, like double-penetration or triple-penetration sex scenes with trolls and monsters, or giant schlongs or that hentai tentacle stuff going inside every hole of some polished barbie with basketball tits, and that just regular hanky-panky is a waste of time in 3D animation. He almost sounded religious about it. Thankfully, he allowed me to share this on my blog.
Ok so obviously, I begged to differ... by his reasoning, we are bound by duty to exploit all new forms of media to the absolute max, regardless of storytelling, insight, believability, amusement, composition, subtlety... it would be the same as saying why did Herge limit himself to the realm of the real world and not give Tintin supercomputers, SciFi weaponry, time-machines and driving Ferraris? and why did Albert Uderzo limit himself to Gaul in the Roman times when Asterix and Obelix could've been fighting spectacular dragons and orcs alongside Odin? And why did he make Asterix such a tiny fucker when he should've made him look like Crixus, with rippling pecs and bouldering biceps? Why did Fred Quimby limit himself to pots, hunting shotguns, bear traps and pianos when he could've exploited his animating skills and made Tom and Jerry kick the shit out of each other in mecha-suits with miniguns and hydra rocket pods... oh wait, they probably did haha...
Because new technology opens doors, doesn't mean they MUST be opened. There is such a thing as being nuanced. 3D computer graphics is IMO just another tool to use to tell a story, like the pens that Herge used. But what about the other doors that 3D CG opens?
Now I am also not saying that you shouldn't go extreme, duh. Nor am I saying that it is bad or that it sucks. There is some very good monster sex art out there by guys like The Merovingian, MongoBongo, and Blackadder to name a few. In fact I myself have a monster sex comic planned, and it might even be more extreme than some other monster sex comics out there (check the posters below, and this post). But it makes no sense to say that there's no point in 3DX without trolls or gollems fucking F-cupped barbie dolls. That's a bit, ehm, daft. The dude kindof agreed in the end, and we concluded that he's just a VERY big fan of monster sex. Nothing wrong with that.
