When you hear the words safe sex, immediately you think of condoms, right?
Well, add something else to your safe sex data bank no cameras.
According to an article in The Daily Telegraph, recording your sex act isn't safe. Just ask the former Miss North Carolina Rebekah Revels (and she lost a lot because of photographs, not even a video) or Kim Kardashian ... well maybe not Kim, since her sex tape shot her into fame.
You excitedly board the plane to rendezvous with your new lover. Your mind is overflowing with anticipation and you can barely wait to arrive at the luxurious hotel where you will spend a decadent weekend together.
You wake up together the following morning and realise that it is not a dream. You then do it all over again but this time with less urgency.
You order room service, more champagne and giggle in delight. You both feel deliriously happy. Your lover then suggests a recording to capture the memory.
Your ecstatic emotions are swirling around in your head. You want to respond and please your lover. You feel flattered, swept up in the moment and it is hard to resist the temptation
You are heady with all the champagne and your usual discretion becomes blurred.
You go along with it, knowing it will add further thrill to another exhilarating lovemaking session.
Your fantastic, enchanting weekend comes to an end and you promise to do it all again soon. But soon never comes. Just as quickly as it started, it ended.
Things can go awry very quickly. One of you has decided to call it quits for whatever reason. The other person may feel raw and confused with mixed emotions.
They may feel startled with relief because that level of passion is draining. Indeed, passion fades in every relationship after the initial euphoric phase of falling in love.
What about the tape? It is too late to undo what has been done. Despite the initial fun, sex tapes can be dangerous. If one partner is left bitter or resentful it is unpredictable what they may do with the tape.
So, grab your condoms and leave the video cameras, video phones and other recording equipment out of your bedroom.
