What Happened to the Woman in “Iran’s Hottest Porn Video”?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The Daily Beast has a post up entitled “Iran’s Hottest Porn Video.” It is written by a male university student who is “pseudonymous for his own safety.” In it he crows about how great it is that the hypocrisy of an Iranian cleric has been exposed, because the cleric was videotaped having sex with a woman who was not his wife, and the video went viral. The cleric “has reportedly been sentenced to 100 lashes and banished to another province,” says the author. But he is strangely silent on the fate of the woman. Unlike himself, who remains “pseudonymous for his own safety,” her safety can readily sacrificed for the sexual freedom of others, apparently.
