Vivid's 10 Best Celebrity Sex Tapes, Ranked
Steven Hirsch is the head of Vivid Entertainment, the legendary porn company that brought you basically every single piece of smut you hid away from your parents over the last 30 years. And when the porn king is not churning out superhero parodies and X-rated talk radio, he and his company are bringing you the crème de la crème of the porno world: celebrity sex tapes.
Yep, Vivid's had a hand (lol) in the creation and distribution of celebrity sex tapes since the very beginning and have no plans on stopping. Pamela Anderson, Tila Tequila, Farrah Abraham, etc. It's a mind-numbing list full of enough T&A to circle the Earth twice.
Recently we were offered the chance to speak with Mr. Hirsch, so we thought, Why not have him rank, in his humble opinion, the top 10 celeb sex tapes ever? To our delight, he obliged. Mr. Hirsch, take it away...
(Oh and this probably goes without saying, but this is all kind of NSFW.)
10. Joslyn James: The 11th Hole"That was chronicling the Tiger Woods saga and starred not only Joslyn, but more of Tiger's mistresses and people were just non-stop intrigued by Tiger's girls."
9. Janine & Vince Neil: Hardcore & Uncensored"The second part of our Motley Crue series, after Pam and Tommy. So, that was our second celebrity sex tape. It really did come right after Pam and Tommy. People were really interested in Vince, although ultimately, most people watch these sex tapes to watch the girls...not the guys."
8. Montana Fishburne"It felt to me that Montana could be the next Kim. She had a lot going for her, but unfortunately it was stopped by her father once the tape was released...To me, Montana was really cute, she had a famous last name, her sex was really good, and I could tell it was going to happen, because when she'd show up to the office and there would be paparazzi. Very disappointed it ended so quickly."
7. Tila Tequila Uncorked"First celebrity sex tape featuring an all-girl threesome. Never been done before."
6. Mimi and Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta"Huge urban following. Massive exposure as a result of their hit TV show. And it was really the first tape that was sort of followed on the show, so the show took it from the point it that the tape was discovered to the point of its release and what happened as a result."
5. Backdoor to Chyna"Still one of the best-selling movies that we have. What made Chyna's interesting is that Chyna approached us to make that movie and I was surprised at how huge a following she had. She wanted to make that movie."
4. Farrah Abraham Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom"Surprise best seller. Hottest sex in the celebrity sex tape genre. It wasn't the first backdoor celebrity sex tape, but it was the first backdoor celebrity sex tape that the media really latched onto."
3. Kendra Exposed"The first sex tape with a seriously established celebrity. This movie didn't make her career, this movie was part of her career. That's the idea, it really was the first one where Kendra was already a star, so people knew who she was. She was on a hit TV show and the cover of magazines."
2. Pam & Tommy Lee: Hardcore & Uncensored"The one that started it all. Every celebrity sex tape owes a debt to Pam and Tommy."
1. Kim Kardashian Superstar"Kim had, uh, everything going for her. From her father representing O.J. to her stepfather being Bruce Jenner and Kim being not only beautiful, but Paris Hilton's best friend. It was a no-brainer."
Editor's Note: Perhaps you're wondering where the Paris Hilton tape is in this list. We're guessing he kept it off since the video was originally distributed by Red Light District Video (Vivid later purchased it in '05).
Jeremy Glass is the Vice editor for Supercompressor and his first venture into the act of stealing VHS tapes from his parents came about coincidentally, right around the release of the Pam & Tommy sex tape. Weird.
