Let’s say you’re a D-List celebrity who needs to jump start a non-career; what on earth would you do? Well, release a sex tape, of course. Over the years since someone spent One Night in Paris, it seems that everyone whose career needs a shot in the arm decides the best way to do it is to find a camera and record themselves doing something downright dirty with their loved ones (or strangers in some cases.)
To be fair, not all of them released their tapes on their own, but they still managed to make huge profits off of them. Here’s a look at 10 people who desperately tried to spark some interest under the sheets. Some of these will be familiar, but others like #4 will come as a surprise.
