NSFW: What do you think of people leaking photos or "sex tapes"?

Asked by gottamakeart (1318 points ) January 22nd, 2013

Is it a calculated maneuver to get fame, or just a cheap, tired publicity stunt?

From what I’ve seen- it undermines the “celebrity” image. I really can’t stand that someone would basically make porn- then pretend it got out by accident. It becomes the 1st thing I think about that individual from then on, It makes them look cheap,fake, and not talented enough.

What are your thoughts on “leaked” photos & video?

I really don’t know, it all terribly boring, and who the hell cares how so and so bonks so and so. Zzzzzz!

I enjoy watching them, assuming I like/am attracted to the celebrity.

But they do tend to point to a trend regarding the persons “image” or quality of work.

Needs further study before I can offer an informed opinion. Post links. Lots and lots of links.

@gottamakeart, could not agree more.

Never watched one. I guess they’re just so self absorbed anything goes.

Now, if it were people leaking, might be more interesting.

Despicable. But apparently, profitable. A magic wand to fame. As in the case of Kim Kardashian. Watching her sex tape though revealed nothing to me except that she is the most boring partner in bed.

I doubt that most of them are “leaked.” It just seems like a cheap way for attention whores to get on TMZ. :D

The use of the word “leaked” is a bit of disingenuity. It’s just a marketing ploy.

It gives good porn a bad name. And I don’t see why Kim Kardashian’s occupation isn’t listed as “Porn Star”. Her tape is all she has ever done.

The sort of people who have sex tapes are invariably the sort of people that I don’t give a shit about anyway. I just ignore that crap.

I’m with @ETpro. I’ve never seen one of these things. So until I’ve seen enough, I couldn’t express an opinion. Please post enough links so that I can make a reasonably well informed opinion.
