Ever since we heard that the sex tape starring John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter reveals that the former presidential candidate is “physically very striking, in a certain area,” we’ve kind of wanted to see it. Striking in what way? Was it wearing a hat? But then the Daily Beast went and told us exactly what goes on in the video.
Here are the gritty details:
One source who has a medical background and has worked with pregnant patients says Hunter appears four or five months pregnant based on the swollen state of her belly and nipples. This would would [sic] place the tape’s filming somewhere around September or October of 2007, smack in the middle of Edwards campaign for the presidency. On the video, both participants are naked. Hunter is propped up against the hotel bed headboard, with John Edwards belly-down on the bed between her legs. As Hunter, the campaign’s official videographer, holds the camera, a smiling Edwards performs oral sex. Because of the camera angle, Hunter’s face is not visible, but her distinctive jewelry is. Not only does candidate Edwards know he’s being filmed, one source says, he’s also clowning around and “graphically performing for the camera.”
This week has only just begun, but we’re pretty sure it can’t recover from that.
