Porn Stars on Celebrity Sex Tapes

Back in the day, a celebrity sex tape was something of a scandal and considered hurtful to the careers of those exposed through theft or blackmail or just betrayal by an ex. The tapes were made privately for the sole enjoyment of the two people on the tape and never meant to see the light of day. Then, along comes the PR-stunt, “accidentally” revealed sex tapes of B, C, and D list actors looking for some kind of boost in their flagging careers. You’d recognize these types as ones showing the likes of Kim Kardashian (a career launcher for her), teen mom Farrah Abraham, Octomom Nadya Suleman, and more. We could probably include Paris Hilton’s little One Night in Paris, and One Night in Chyna starring WWF’s Chyna.

To believe that any of the above listed sex tapes weren’t for reigniting public interest is to be living in fantasy land. Now, when Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee’s nuptial naughtiness went viral after being stolen from their home, people got pretty excited, and Anderson and Lee were outraged. Theirs was never meant to be shared and neither needed any help with their careers; especially not that kind of help. The couple went out of their way to legally block the viewing and/or sale of their private film. Not so for the others listed. For them, the stunt of creating a sex tape extended their claims to fame for a few minutes longer, and in the case of Kardashian, turned her naked romp with Ray J into a reality show empire and even a family business.

The funniest part is that not a single one of them would consider themselves “porn” stars yet they created porn. Real adult industry actors had a mixed reaction to this growing phenomenon.

According to The Daily Beast, Wicked Pictures actress, Jessica Drake, says that although she knows the Anderson/Lee tape was a “fluke”, “Now it is not an accidental thing. It is something that is so incredibly contrived that you have these people with these floundering careers and their PR people are actually suggesting that they make these sex tapes,”

 

 

One porn actress took her outrage to Twitter after learning that Farrah Abraham was paid $1.4 million for having sex with porn actor James Deen. “Dana DeArmond tweeted: “Ugh! I should’ve gotten famous for being an idiot and then done porn instead of the other way around.” Ouch!

What many people don’t realize is that there are laws in place, paperwork that must be filed before a porn tape can be released out onto the internet or for direct sale. The days of “accidental” and “Oopsie” videos has passed so when one is reported as “leaked”, it’s not really leaked, it’s a cheap bid for attention and one that takes away from the adult industry actors who “put it out” there everyday, and don’t get paid near as much as these D-list celebs.

It all seems to come down to what it always comes down to… Men (and women, too) want to see naked people, but what they want to see even more than the already-naked people are the poeple who haven’t yet stripped down. It’s the logic of taboo. When we think we can’t have something we want it more, and when a celebrity is perceived as one who will not share their nakedness willingly, an “accidentally leaked” sex tape will have old fans and new frothing at the chops for a glimpse of celebrity skin.
