Before we begin, let's make one thing clear: sex tapes are A-OK , as long as they're made between consenting adults. If the idea excites you, getting it on in front of the camera can even be an exhilarating way to spice things up in the bedroom. Unfortunately, sex tapes sometimes fall into the wrong hands—and that's especially true with celebrity sex tapes.

As we've pointed out time and time again , people have sex! And making a consensual sex tape in the privacy of one's own home is nothing to be ashamed of. But the stories of how they were released, why they were released, and how the celebs in question dealt with their release is a fascinating chapter in pop culture.
Most of these celeb tapes are actually watchable, but there are certainly a few that we wouldn't recommend. This list of famous Hollywood celebrities caught filming a movie in the sheets features a little of both. Be it an actor, actress, singer or politician, male or female, intimate movies seem to be all the rage for the biggest celebrities these days. Some are released by former lovers looking to make a buck while others are filmed in secret without the knowledge of the participants. Some celebs even market their own tapes with the hopes of making a buck or getting their names back in the headlines via news reports about a star or wannabe star's latest new celebrity video.
I've watched a lot of celebrity sex tapes. Dozens of them. Rarely are they titillating—but more interesting is how much they do or don't offer a glimpse into the private lives of those involved. They leave you wondering: Are they being themselves? Are they acting? Are they acting well?
