(Newser) – This week’s 50th anniversary of the Playboy Bunny finds the porn industry in a bad way: It’s more popular than ever, yet fewer are actually paying to see skin. The Wrap has some suggestions:

  • Go 3-D: “I think that if they can get the 3-D mixed with the interactive, they've got a shot,” one actress tells Dominic Patten.
  • Find another Jenna: As in Jameson, the busty blonde whose retirement to motherhood has left porn without a superstar.

  • Diversify: More celebrities, hipster porn … if there’s a niche, fill it.
  • Add the Wii: “Take those interactive scene- and positions-choosing DVDs already out there, throw in some creative variation on the Wii Fit, add the upcoming pulsing Wii Vitality Sensor, and, well, you’re Master of your Digital Domain,” Patten suggests.
  • Ban it: “Worked for booze in Prohibition, where exclusivity and illegality created a tidal wave of demand far greater than before.”
