You almost can’t turn on the news, sign on to social media or visit your favorite haunt on the blogosphere without hearing about a new celebrity sex tape. It’s perplexing to me because I had no idea that many people filmed their sexual trysts. I never have, and if I did, I certainly wouldn’t leave it lying around the house for someone to find or on my computer’s desktop for someone to hack. Isn’t that how celebrities claim the sextapes get out? Because you’d have to be a fool to believe every tape just accidentally falls into the wrong hands and conveniently boosts the particpant’s career.

But I digress.

From the Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee home video to Kanye West’s rumored home movies (yes, plural), sextapes are as prevalent these days as a new Rihanna album.

Big Sean said as much when being interviewed about, you guessed it, a new celebrity sex tape. In his case, it was a rumored tape between him and Nicki Minaj, which he denies:

“If [his mixtape] didn’t do good, which it did, I was just going to drop a sex tape. Because sex tapes are the new mixtape.”

Well, atleast he’s honest about it.

Hey, if it worked for Kim Kardashian…

    People having regular sex is pretty boring, even if the people doing it are really attractive. There is a reason why porn features doing stuff that people don’t actually do in their real lives. A prime example is Kim Kardashian’s snoozefest with Ray J. Once people got over the gossip aspect of that video, the actual sex was dull as paint drying.

    • Agreed! Kim K was just a perfect storm for fame not because of the sex tape itself (agreed it was boring I remember stop watching it to do homework..lol *blushing*) but because she knew the right people (both black and white) in Hollywood, her mom was savvy on how to spin it, she is attractive and just “ambiguous” looking enough for Hollywood and had something to sensationalize combined with an active dating life of who’s who. All these things contributed to her fame not just getting it popping on camera.

  • i really don’t understand the big deal with these sex tapes. it’s just sex! what is so special about THESE people sticking a penis in a vagina (just like every other human and animal on earth) that is resulting in them making millions and becoming famous from it?

    i really don’t understand the hype.

    It’s interesting that people “leak” sextapes due to a lack of artistic talent. No, sextapes are not the new mixtapes, but to a society that is celebrity-driven and can’t tell the difference, I guess they are.
