Who doesn’t love a good sex tape? The Internet is abuzz with speculation that we may soon have the chance to see Kim and Kanye go at it in the near future.
The often controversial couple has been offered 25 million dollars by head of Vivid, Steve Hirsch, who is enticed by the prospect of massive profits based on the wide commercial success of Kim Kardashian’s original 2003 sex tape featuring Ray J which he released in 2007, a video which to this day brings in substantial revenue.
“The deal to ultimately release the Kim K video was arguably the best deal made in the history of the adult industry,” said Hirsch, in an interview with Radar Online recently. He continued, “If you take into consideration not only the sales but the immense publicity it has received, it truly stands above any other video.”
Hirsch goes on to explain that the total revenue accrued by the footage increases daily, and that sales are tied directly to episodes of media coverage featuring Mrs. Kardashian-West. “A Kim/Kanye tape would be worth $25 million, at bare minimum,” he related.
The head of Vivid also commented on the potential value of a sex tape from any of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters, indicating it would be an instant blockbuster. “Instant bestsellers due to the huge interest in their lives. How much we would pay depends on what they would be willing to do in the movie and several other factors,” he went on to relate.
The money offered up front for the tape is no doubt drops in a bucket compared to the vast amounts of revenue the publicity would generate for the famous couple in terms of boosting sales in their other endeavors, due to the immense free publicity the release of such a tape would foster for the celebrity couple.
