The sex tape, which allegedly shows Prejean pleasuring herself, initially seemed like a potential PR boost for her book, Still Standing. But the book's Amazon sales rank of #4,786 isn't terribly impressive (though it's #34 in "political doctrines"), and new revelations about her past seem to have soured her relations with supporters. These revelations include not just the tape itself, but a TMZ interview with its alleged intended recipient. This "boyfriend," whom Prejean said she "loved about and cared about," says he only met her in person once, for a four-day stretch they spent in a hotel. He also says she made him at least fifteen sex tapes, all when she was over 18, and that she and her lawyers pressured him to say she was underage — presumably so the tapes would be considered child pornography and not released. Though the ex remains anonymous, it's still in his interest to claim he would never have sex with an underage girl, and it's probably wise to take all his words with a grain of salt. But for the Christian groups that used to back Prejean, they may be the last straw.
