Does anyone else see the potential whole new genre of web porn being birthed here?

Invest in those big scanners now, dude.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Maybe it's the cats taking revenge for this ('pologies in advance if this has been posted here before).e

wow, this could be very intersting for the porn industry i think. i want one. i'm sure it costs a mere fortune though, and i doubt i'd use it enough to be worth it, plus the thing is huge. i still think itd be cool to see myself scanned.. i think anyone would.

i don't think my cat seeks revenge on me for anything. but i do think i might scan him now.

1) Is this as dangerous as the rays from those tanning booths?

2) Who gets to keep the scan after the divorce?

Hum, forget the porn angle for a second: I think this stuff can make great peices of art or some kind of fashion campaign.

Check out the site of the people who are running the full body scans and see all their other customers' scans. Some have the quality of looking like billboards, others look like people are about to get hit by trains.

Revenge? No. Just pyjamas.

phyrewerx, I can't recall the name of the company off of the top of my head, but this technique has been used as a fashion ad campaign. Blast. Must Google more efficiently.

Why take a normal photograph, when you can abuse an obviously expensive piece of equipment, and risk both life and limb with the possibility of smashing the glass and falling in?

Awww, isn't that cute how his hand is going down her pants AND up her shirt, at the same time?!?
