The invasion of Hollywood sex tapes that are being used as a vessel for D-list celebrities to gain fame, will soon most likely become a thing of the past. These get-famous-quick schemes are desensitizing the public to this type of porn film. Soon the celebrity sex tape will be just like any other of the millions of porn movies on the shelves.
Just how many celebrity porn movies is too much? In the beginning, the scandal along with the thoughts that the public had a chance to view these private and provocative moments in a celebrity’s life was like the forbidden fruit. Today they are becoming a dime a dozen.
Many look to Kim Kardashian’s fame and believe she wouldn’t be where she is today if she had not done a sex tape. They may be right, but this was the real deal of someone taking her most personal and intimate moments and selling her out for money. Kardashian, who was mortified and still is to this day, says: “this was not one of my finest moments”, according to the NY Daily News. She would not recommend this journey for anyone trying to travel into stardom.
Kardashian’s sex tape was like watching something that you were not suppose to see. It was a shocking unique happening at the time. We were defiant by watching this, because she did not want us to see it. Yes, it took on a life of its own and made Kardashian get noticed, but this was the way it really played out. All the talk about the sex tape in the media with Kim trying to stop its release acted as free publicity for the tape, but again, this was not meant to act as publicity, she wanted the sex tape vanished off the face of the earth.
D-list celebrities like Kendra Wilkinson, who followed in Kardashian’s sex tape journey to the letter, also got their tapes out there to make millions. The public started to get smart and with some good journalistic detective work, RadarOnline was able to uncover Wilkinson’s real intentions. She was not at all embarrassed about her sex tape coming out, she was the one behind trying to get it released.
We are seeing the same scenario unfold with Heidi Montag today. Unfortunately for Montag, people have wised up to the workings of the D-list celebrity, and Montag’s sex tape is getting some press, but it pales in comparison to what we saw for Kardashian and Wilkinson. The media already has come up with the theory that Montag is behind the tape being prepped for release and not buying the story that her estranged husband is doing this for revenge, according to Hollywood Gossip.
People are not stupid and they also don’t like being taken for fools. With this said, the days of the sex tape being headline news because the celebrity wants to stop it from being distributed is over. Vivid Entertainment, the company that has released all the sex tapes talked about here, needs to get legal permission to market a sex tape, so if the celebrity does not sign on, it is not going to happen. This little known fact is well known now and it will do away with all the free publicity of the celebrity reporting they are “fighting against the release of their tape”.
The celebrity sex tapes are over done and they are now coming one after another. Even Lawrence Fishburne’s daughter, Montana Fishburne, got in on the act. Her publicity was around her father’s disapproval, as evident in this article on TMZ. The news of this fell out the headlines quickly.
The celebrities have sex like everyone else, they don’t have a special line of moves or positions that are only practiced by them, so there is nothing new they have to offer. The forbidden fruit and peeping Tom aspects of these tapes have been taken out of the equation, now that we know the celebrity has to sign for its release.
All that is left is a familiar face doing what people do every day in the privacy of their bedrooms. This will get old quick and the celebrity sex tapes will just get filed under the letter “C”, along with the rest of the porn movies available to the public.
