Indonesian Celebrity Sex Videos -- The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...

It was not all that long ago that there was huge debate in Indonesia about the moral decay among Indonesians as their celebrities who all seemed to be more interested in making sex tapes or being associated with them than setting solid moral and ethical examples for the youth of Indonesia. As a matter of fact Nazriel "Ariel" Irham of Peterpan fame is still languishing in jail awaiting a trial on charges stemming from a sex tape that he starred in.

While Ariel is biding his time in a jail cell and dreaming about past, and perhaps future, sex-capades with beautiful young starlets (or maybe even Miyabi assuming the offer is still on the table or bed), a candidate for the District Head position in Central Lombok, Suhaili Fadhil Thorir, is set to win his way into office.

Apart from leading the election, Thorir's other claim to fame is that he starred in a five-minute sex tape uploaded to YouTube back in May. The police are still investigating whether a crime has been committed with respect to the tape finding its way onto YouTube. However, it is highly unlikely that the people of Central Lombok are not aware of Thorir's sex-capades. So, it seems pretty obvious that most people could not give the proverbial "rat's" about what Thorir does in his own time and how he likes to document it. Besides, Thorir is claiming that the woman in the video is his wife, which presumably makes it all okey dokey (or is that hunky dory?)!

Although, this might be only partly true as the two main candidates, Thorir and Lalu Gede Muhammad Ali Wira Sakti, trade accusations that the other cheated by bribing potential voters with gifts. Sakti alleges Thorir of giving voters IDR 10K and Thorir returns fire that Sakti gave voters cigarettes and roosters.

A sex tape is a sex tape and porn is porn. So, I wonder why Ariel is languishing in jail while Thorir is enjoying the fruits of his labour and internet popularity to get elected to the top job in Central Lombok.

Hi Rob,

I wonder why Thorir's rival in the election did not emphasize on the sex video.

@ Harry...

I don't know that it would have gained much traction anyways. After all, he was claiming that the woman was his wife. And, there is nothing illegal / criminal about filming a consensual sexual act under the provisions of the current criminal code and anti-porn law, is there?

There might be some traction to had if the release of the tape was intended to titillate (no pun intended), but the police are taking their time on this one. This can mean one of two things; there is no case or there are bigger interests at play ensuring that the investigation goes nowhere.
