ASK BLONDTRON: Talk to me about sextapes – yay or nay?


Dear Blondtron,

I’ve just started dating a new guy (2 months or so), and he keeps pushing we do a sex video. I’m not entirely against it – but at the same time, isn’t this a recipe for disaster?

We really haven’t been together long enough that I feel entirely comfortable taping the roll arounds. But then again, I like to keep an open mind in this arena; as they say, variety is the spice of life.

What are your thoughts? Is it a terrible idea?

He is really, really keen – so I’m also not really sure how to not do it – without killing the beginnings of something that is maybe really cool.

Love Iris.

Dear Iris,

Dating Terry Richardson can be hard, but no matter how much you think you like someone, doing something you’re not comfortable with over fear of losing that person is just fucking mental. No one is worth your worth. Ya dig?

If you are open to the idea and think you could give it a go, do it on your terms. Offer to film it but on your camera and then watch it together, you be in control of it and make it your thing so that if he wants to watch he has to do so with you. As much as you think you can trust someone now, you never know what kind of crazy shit can happen that tear people apart.

Revenge porn is a thing and my sweet, sweet Iris, unless your last name is Kardashian, you don’t sound like someone that wants that for themselves. You could also offer to make it fun, tape your favourite celebrities faces onto paper bags and then wear them on your head and fuck each others’ brains out. Make a whole bunch of celebrity sex tapes and live out all the weird things you never thought you wanted to do to Keanu Reeves.

The bottom line is this, you have to live with you, for always. So no matter how many times Ryan Gosling tells you he wrote you every day, just lay down the law and use your own iphone. Don’t forget to turn off icloud, uness you want a sea of dick-tures, you thought you deleted, to just show up at an inopportune time.
