An Indian man has given his wife the ultimate 'thank you.' He secretly taped them having sex and then threatened to release the tape unless her dowry was increased 20-fold. Nothing says 'I love you' like extortion.
A video camera in the bedroom: naughty way to spice up your sex life—or therapeutic tool to reveal deeper truths about your relationship? Both, says Michael Alvear, a gay Atlanta-based sexpert who spent three seasons with The Sex Inspectors, a British television show in which he and his co-host analyzed video footage of long-term couples. Their goal? To help the twosomes get their passion back, both in and out of the sack. Since it aired in 2004, the show has appeared on HBO and has been duplicated in about a dozen countries. I had a chat with Alvear to get the real take on what happens both on-screen and behind the scenes when the film is rolling—and to find out what you can learn by inviting an all-seeing camera into your bedroom.
An Australian man was given a year of probation for sending friends a sex tape of him and a former lover. The man filmed their sex session with his camera and sent it to his friends after she would not take him back. This group of friends included her new guy.
A court in Italy ruled that someone can record their own sex sessions without the knowledge of their partner provided that they do not distribute the footage. This comes after a man almost had to spend four months in jail for taping his lovemaking to his ex-girlfriend. We're shocked that it didn't end up online. And he actually gave the tapes to her. That means that he's actually a pretty decent guy, in our book.
