(Newser) – The McSteamy nudie vid is just the latest in a long and illustrious line of celebrity sex tapes. E! lists some of the best-known:

  • Rob Lowe: Two of his videotaped trysts leaked in 1988—including one that involved a 16-year-old.
  • Paris Hilton: Her 2003 romp with Rick Salomon essentially made her a household name.

  • Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee: Marked Pam’s second time going to court over a sex tape—the first was with Bret Michaels.
  • R. Kelly: Managed to trump Lowe by involving a 14-year-old.
  • Dustin Diamond: Screech claims he didn’t condone the release, but the video backer says otherwise.
  • Kim Kardashian and Ray J: Much like Paris Hilton, this tape catapulted Kardashian to stardom.
  • Kid Rock and Scott Stapp: Five words: Groupies on a tour bus.
