An Inside Look at the Celebrity Sex Tape Industry

Blatt said it's par for the course in a very litigious and very profitable business. He said McCready was "absolutely" a willing participant in the tape's release, whether she admitted it or not.

"Absolutely. Absolutely," Blatt said. "And if that's not true, Mindy, come sue me next. I mean that's just the bottom line. I mean look, I would love to sit here and perpetuate and keep these things going. But at the end of the day, I think the general public's [going to] start to get hip to what's going on."

Just weeks after the tape's release, McCready was hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose.

So what does this say about the entertainment-consuming public that craves every moment of a celebrity's life -- and even rewards them for shedding their last morsel of privacy?

We asked Hirsch if he was ever surprised that people seem to videotape so much of their sex lives, and then have the tapes floating around out there for people to try to sell.

"We live in a time where everybody has a video camera, so no, it's not surprising to me that people experiment with that," Hirsch said. "I think for the most part people [keep their videos locked away].

"But for those few that don't -- we're here for them!"
