Is it porn? Pornography, obscene, obsenity, sex...?

Two thousand six hundred porn searchers have downloaded scene 14 of the movie "God's Companion".

Why, is a mystery to the producers of the animated science fiction romantic comedy.

"We released early versions of most of the scenes for download so that people could see how the movie was shot and edited. For some reason a porn site has been sending people to watch scene 14," the director, Goyo de la Brisa, explains.

On June 7 seven hundred and fifty people clicked to download the scene. (The filmmakers could see that they had all come from a pornography site because the computer keeps a record of where they come from.) The next day June 8 another one and a half thousand porn seekers clicked to download the scene searching for some secret thrill.

The director and others have checked that scene, watching it several times wondering what on earth makes it of interest to pornographers, and aside from the mention of buttocks and thighs, which is hardly rude, they cannot find any rational explanation.

"If it were the next scene, scene 15 in which Hignat tries to seduce Jones I could imagine that someone might find it titillating or perhaps it would appeal in some bizarre way to some fetish, but we are completely mystified why they chose scene 14."
