Another one bites the pillow

Well, it looks like the PR has paid off for Kendra Wilkinson, as her sex tape has become a smash hit before it's even released. When it was first announced that Vivid Entertainment was planning to release 'Kendra Exposed', Wilkinson went public to try and block its distribution.

Outraged by this invasion of her privacy, Kendra did her best to prevent its release. Which is funny, since she's apparently made a number of similar movies, including one girl-on-girl epic. And this one was filmed in a room at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas during the annual porn industry awards. Oh, and she spent a while sharing a mailbox with six or seven other Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner's mansion. But perhaps this was just one exposure too many for the platinum-haired pin-up.

Not so much, it turns out. Since this isn't so much an invasion as an open house. Shortly after she filed her lawsuit, it emerged that Kendra was behind the film's release, and stands to pocket $680,000, plus 50% of the profits for her efforts. Still, nothing sells like controversy, and Kendra's home movie is now set to beat even Pamela Anderson's best-selling grumble-flick.

These days, anyone who's anyone has their name on a grainy, poorly filmed porn film. Onanists around the world seem to be spending most of their hard-earned money on films that look like the Blair Witch Project with extra genitals.

Thankfully, there's one 'unauthorised' DIY grotbuster that we've been spared, featuring a most unlikely star. According to a story in the Washington Post, those sly spooks at the CIA planned to discredit none other than Saddam Hussein by staging a fake sex tape.

During the planning stages of the Iraq invasion, "the CIA's Iraq Operations Group kicked around a number of ideas for discrediting Saddam Hussein in the eyes of his people. One was to create a video purporting to show the Iraqi dictator having sex with a teenage boy."

The idea was to manipulate perceived Muslim bias against homosexuality to turn Saddam's people against him. "It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera. Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session." And you thought Ron Jeremy was an unlikely porn star.

The Post's source also claims that the reason the idea was jettisoned was because "Saddam playing with boys would have no resonance in the Middle East - nobody cares. Trying to mount such a campaign would show a total misunderstanding of the target. We always mistake our own taboos as universal when, in fact, they are just our taboos."

Presumably, genocide, torture and military invasion weren't considered 'taboo' enough.
