You know how sometimes a movie will get a fresh infusion of "adult material" before being released as a very special Unrated Edition? Well, get this: MTI Home Video has decided to go in the opposite direction entirely: They'll be releasing an R-rated sex-free version of the big-budget porno flick Pirates!

Now, I'm not exactly sure who the intended market is for an R-rated sex-free porno movie, but this Pirates flick (often referred to as the priciest smut film ever made and the winner of numerous AVN awards) promises a lot of high-end action, tons of special FX and some inordinately swanky production design. The original sex romp clocked in at an overstuffed 129 minutes, while MTI's R-rated version will run only about 82 minutes ... which tells me that the original version had only about 47 minutes of hardcore humpage in it.

If this experiment works, expect MTI to deliver a "violence-free" version of Hostel, an "animation-free" version of The Incredibles, and an "ineptitude-free" version of BloodRayne.
