It wasn't that long ago when "celebrity" sex tapes were all the rage.
"Celebrities" such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton likely WOULDN'T have, uh-hum, careers today WITHOUT their sex tapes being released (pardon the pun!).
Some "celebrities" who came out (pardon the pun!) with sex tapes went on to become full-fledged porn stars such as Amy "Long Island Lolita" Fisher and the late pro-wrestler Joanie Laurer a.k.a. Chyna.
The most famous-and infamous!-"celebrity" sex tape of all-time would have to be the one with Pamela Anderson and her then-well-endowed husband Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
(You know, the one where Mr. Lee famously-and infamously!-"drives" their boat with his, shall we say, endowment!)
I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of so-called "celebrity" sex tapes as I like my "adult" entertainment more-again, shall we say-professionally produced.
The very first "celebrity" sex tape I ever, uh-hum, watched was the one with embattled Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding. (Anyone remember HER?)
It was OK, I guess. At least Tonya looked more-once again, shall we say-enthusiastic than Paris did in her sex tape. (Hell, Paris looks bored even in night vision!)
Of course, one thing these "celebrity" sex tapes have in common-besides, of course, the obvious!-is that all the "celebs" insisted how they DIDNT know how their naughty tapes were released (pardon the pun!).
Honestly, I can't recall the last time I heard about a "celebrity" coming out (pardon the pun!) with a sex tape.
Which, when you think about it, really isn't so surprising when you consider the rather "conservative"-even rather "puritanical"-times we're living in sexually.
I mean, the Miss America pageant took out the bikini contest. Playboy took out the nudity from its pages for a time. The Victoria's Secret TV show got canceled. And there's even a "burkini"-clad model in the newest Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
Also, in the #MeToo era, female "celebrities" who were just a few years ago appearing half-naked in magazines like Maxim now are advocating for "sex strikes" for whatever reason.
And, yeah, I'm looking at YOU, Alyssa "Woke" Milano!
Even "First Lady" Melania Trump has taken heat for daring to pose nude-and sometimes with another woman!-back when she was a model.
Jerry Falwell and ISIS would be SO proud!
And for anyone who doesn't know just who Jerry Falwell is-or was-and why I would "link" him to ISIS, I suggest Googling it, OK? OK!
