Brittney Jones Sex Tape: An Overhyped Disappointment?

Come on. Is anyone surprised that after announcing she had a romp (so far totally unproven) with Ashton Kutcher, Brittney Jones is only pretending to be coy about an unrelated sex tape?

The tape shows Jones having sexy sex with her current (unfamous) boyfriend and has nothing -- nada -- to do with Ashton Kutcher. But that hasn’t stopped Jones from using Kutcher’s name to garner her own fame. Klasseh!
 
For Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, and Paris Hilton, sex tapes have been a fabulous way to get attention when public interest seems to be flagging. And many nobodies have tried to become somebody -- or at least get a passable pay-day out of the deal -- with an onscreen nookie-fest.
 
But of course, you’ve got to at least pretend to say no. Otherwise you’d look like a total ho-bag! Oh wait ...

Here’s the thing about this particular sex tape:

  • Ashton Kutcher is not involved. His name was originally supposed to appear on the box, because Jones says she had sex with him, but she’s got no pictures, no tape, no texts to back up her claim. So basically, she’s using his name to get attention, and it’s working (hi, I’m writing about it).
  • Judging from the stills, she’s totally performing for the camera. Which is great if you’re kinky, but there’s nothing to indicate she’s performing for anything but the camera, if you see what I mean. Contrast with Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee, who were clearly enjoying themselves in addition to showing off.
  • Just like Wilkinson, Jones is publicly complaining about the release of the tape while privately shopping for a deal with Vivid Video. How badly can one person need $50K? Do you really have no other marketable skills?

 
Look, I’m all in favor of people having lots of sex with whoever they want, as long as everyone’s consenting and nobody is hurt. That’s not slutty to me. To me, “slutty” is using sex to get attention, faking enjoyment in an act that’s pretty much designed to be enjoyable, and lying about the whole thing.
 
In other words, here’s my new bumper sticker: SEX FOR PLEASURE! NOT FOR PUBLICITY!
 
Would you put that on your car?
