In case this gets taken down by YouTube, here’s a rundown: She comes out in a white push-up bra and matching panties, she addresses an unknown man (not her husband, from whom she was temporarily separated when this was made) as “Pequis”, she says she’s not used to doing this sort of thing, and proceeds to drone on for nearly a full minute about how much she loves him, while clutching a pillow to her cleavage-y chest. It’s not much of a sexy tape (except for the underwear, maybe; she’s quite shapely), but it’s enough to prove one hell of an embarrassment.
It should go without saying that if you’re in a position of prominence, as she was, this is a really, incredibly stupid thing to do. Not only because of the affair, but because this tape ended up in the hands of a third party who blackmailed her. And because she failed to pay up, it’s now on the Internet, where nothing ever dies. And while she has her supporters, she still hasn’t got her job back.
Moral of the story: If you’re looking to declare your total, undying devotion to that special someone, don’t do it like this. Especially if he’s not who you married, and you, like Anthony Weiner, have a lot to lose should it ever become public. And in the age of the Internet, it will. Anything even remotely suggestive is gonna end up in hands other than those for whom you intended it.
And even if you don’t mind the whole world knowing about your love, you’ll be sure to mind the snickering that goes with surprisingly unsexy missteps like this.
