Kim Kardashian’s 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend, Ray J, is now the biggest-selling sex tape of all time.The previous title has been held by Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee since 1995 for their home video.
While most celebrities have failed to benefit from their sex tapes being leaked, Kim Kardashian’s sex tape has raked in upward of $100 million since its release.
The superstar starred in a sleazy romp with her then boyfriend Ray J in 2003, but turned the leak into a personal triumph rather than a disaster when it was released four years later.
Since she had sex with rapper and then boyfriend Ray J, on film, her life has changed dramatically: From Paris Hilton’s wardrobe aide to a controversial pop-culture icon… All in the blink of an eye.
That’s unsurprising considering its popularity. Kim Kardashian is a PornHub favourite and apparently someone begins watching the tape on an average of every 1.5 seconds.
The tape is currently estimated to have had 210 million views, accounting for online, DVD and VividTV. There are even special collectors editions being sold.
The popular amateur porn film kick-started the Kardashian Klan as we know it, amid circulated rumours that the ‘momager’, Kris, curated the sex tape and leak to achieve fame for her eldest daughter.
Whatever you think of Kim, it’s got to be the one of the most lucrative deals in the history of adult film.
