Jul 15 (TheWrap.com) - “Sex Tape” director Jake Kasdan learned everything he needed to know about homemade pornography from YouPorn, apparently.
The movie stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a boring, complacent married couple who tries spicing up their love life by making the titular sex tape, but then accidentally uploads it to “the cloud” and shares it with their network of friends.
The Golden Globe-nominated filmmaker researched the movie premise in a most unconventional way — he worked with YouPorn, a popular YouTube-esque amateur pornography site.
He didn't log on to their site to watch hours of scintillating videos, however. Kasdan met with the company's executives to get a better understanding of how the online pornography industry and cloud-based file sharing works.
