The big red carpet was rolled out on Thursday night as cast members Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz posed at the premiere of “Sex Tape” in Los Angeles. According to Reuters on Thursday, the photographers were on hand to take plenty of pictures of the two actors who tossed their cloths aside to reveal all in the upcoming movie.

Add that 35 percent of people who made a sex tape admitted that they filmed it in their twenties and 27 percent filmed the sex tape in their thirties.

However, this problem in the movie might be more of a concern than most people think. With so many people able to acquire digital downloads with just one click. It might be possible for anyone to see some bedroom action.
