Top 10 Sex Tape Scandals of 2009

10th.: Shauna Sand - It sounds counterintuitive that a Playboy bunny could be involved in a sex tape scandal, but former playmate Shauna Sand got into a fight with Vivid Video when the adult movie firm announced they had acquired several tapes of the buxom blonde having sex with her boyfriend. Sand said the company had no legal right to distribute her private footage.

"I've made several sex tapes," Shauna Sand said of the steamy footage Vivid had acquired, "but I certainly didn't sign off on this and Vivid has no right to put it out." Vivid released the footage anyway.

09th.: Miss Universe Trinidad - Anya Ayoung-Chee, Miss Universe Trinidad and Tobago 2008, found herself in a pickle this year when a sex tape surfaced which featured the beauty queen in a m'nage a trois with her boyfriend and another woman. The boyfriend, Wyatt Gallery, claimed the video was stolen from his laptop while it was at a repair shop in Trinidad.

Gallery told celebrity site TMZ that the racy footage was shot in 2007, and confirmed Ayoung-Chee was in the tape with him - along with the other unnamed girl. "I feel horrible and embarrassed for Anya, her family and myself," he told TMZ. The other woman in the tape is a close friend of the couple, Gallery said, and not Miss Universe Japan 2008, as was originally speculated.

08th.: Cops Cruising for Love - They may have only been trying to cop a feel, but Ohio police chief Timothy Escola and his amorous subordinate, Janine England, felt the heat once a dashboard cam video of their steamy antics came out. It didn’t help that there was a prisoner in the back seat. The infamous video, shot on June 2, 2009, shows the two making out. England touches the chief on the neck and face, and kisses him.

In the end, Perry Township Police Chief Timothy Escola was forced to resign. Part-time police officer Janine England was not disciplined for her actions, according to the Canton Repository newspaper.

07th.: Michael Duvall - In July 2009, California Assemblyman Michael Duvall was caught detailing his sexual conquests on an open mike at an assembly meeting. During the recorded conversation, the married lawmaker talked about spanking his "bad girl" mistress and expressed a liking for her "little eye-patch underwear."

Whose "eye-patch underwear" was Michael Duvall talking about? According to the Orange County Register, it was 36-year-old married lobbyist Heidi DeJong Barsuglia, shown here. In the end, Duvall was stripped of his committee posts and an ethics probe was launched. In September 2009, he eventually resigned.

06th.: Grady Sizemore - He isn't Tiger, but Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore managed to make his own waves in 2009, when a series of racy images of the baseball all-star found their way to Web sites in November. Sizemore claimed the shots, including one where he is naked except for a well-placed tea cup, were "stolen" from the e-mail of his girlfriend, Playboy playmate Brittany Binger.

The steamy pictures Grady Sizemore made for girlfriend Playboy playmate Brittany Binger, shown here, were investigated by Major League Baseball officials who asked Internet sites to take them down and have suggested a criminal investigation is possible. Despite Sizemore's threats to sue, the photos can still be found on a number of sites.

05th.: Ashley Greene - Ashley Greene, the fresh-faced actress who played Alice Cullen in the box-office hit "Twilight," went on the offensive this summer when nude photos of the 22-year-old surfaced on the Web. Greene's lawyer confirmed the authenticity of the shots and threatened to sue anyone who published them, claiming that the photos are illegal and displaying them is unlawful.

Famed celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton was one of the first to break the story, reportedly posting Ashley Greene's nude pictures on his blog. Hilton later removed them and posted a statement from Greene's attorney claiming the actress "owns the exclusive rights, among others, to reproduce, distribute, and to display the photos."

04th.: School Teacher Gave Sex Tape to 5th Graders - A class of fifth graders in California got a shocking crash course in the birds and the bees courtesy of their teacher, Crystal Defanti, and an x-rated home video she accidently sent to their parents. Surprisingly, the children's parents came to her defense saying that the woman is a good teacher who made an honest, but embarrassing mistake.

03rd.: Grey's Anatomy Three-way - This year, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane lived up to his "McSteamy" nickname, with the help of his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former beauty queen Kari Anne Peniche, who were caught frolicking naked together in a video released to the web August 2009. The couple said the video was "personal and private" and sued Gawker for posting it. Gawker responded "If you don’t want a sex tape on the Internet don’t make one."

In the video, Eric Dane rolls around naked with his wife, former Noxzema girl Rebecca Gayheart, and their friend Kari Anne Peniche, seen here. In one scene the two women share a bubble bath. In other scenes, the threesome appears intoxicated, on what is unclear. After media site Gawker published the tape online and refused to remove it, the couple sued them, but a judge has limited the damages they could win.

02nd.: Carrie Prejean - In 2009, Miss California USA Carrie Prejean said she stood for something: a strong belief in God and a dislike for gay marriage. In June, when she was fired from her post, she sued the pageant for religious discrimination. They countersued over her unpaid breast implants. But, according to NBC, the legal battle imploded when pageant organizers uncovered a sex tape featuring the religiously devout beauty queen.

Carrie Prejean claimed the solo sex tape was made for her boyfriend when she was 17. Celebrity site TMZ claimed there were several tapes and that the boyfriend said she was 20. They also reported that adult video firm Vivid Entertainment was trying to release it. As for those pesky lawsuits, they settled quickly and quietly and both parties "wish each other the best in their future endeavors."

01st.: Tiger Woods - By far the biggest sex scandal of 2009 was the sordid tale of Tiger Woods and his seemingly unending supply of alleged mistresses. After a November car crash, Woods apologized for infidelity, but didn't name names. That didn't stop the tabloids, which dug up more than 10 women who might have had sex with Woods, including porn stars, escorts, and cocktail waitresses. Sponsors looked for the exit. His wife might, too.

Some of the women linked to Woods kept quiet. Others, like Jaimee Grubbs, seemed to bask in the spotlight. Grubbs shared her story on television and in print and disclosed what she claims were voicemails and sex-texts from Woods. In one text exchange, the man writes "I will wear you out... when was the last time you got (bleeped)?" As sponsors flee Woods, now it's the golfer getting bleeped.
