Joe Francis Sex Tape

SOLD!!!!!!!

But Will Never Be Released

6/17/2013 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0614-joe-francis-steve-hirsch-tmzThe Joe Francis sex tape has been PURCHASED by a major porn company ... but the footage will never, ever, ever, ever see the light of day, TMZ has learned. 

We broke the story ... a sex tape featuring the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho and his smoking hot girlfriend was being shopped to various media outlets. Francis had threatened to sue everyone and their mother over the tape, claiming it was stolen from his GF's iPad. 

But Francis can call off his legal pit bulls (for a change) ... thanks to a HUUUUGE favor from Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch

Turns out, the two porn moguls are friends (same porny circles) ... and when the person selling the tape went to Vivid, Steve decided to do Francis a solid and snatched it off the market (price: unknown). 

Hirsch then turned around and gave all of the footage to Joe, along with the promise he'd never release the tape.  

As for why the porn kings didn't involve police ... Hirsch told us, "Because of the time-sensitive nature of the situation I made a decision to expedite the process and return the movie to its original owner."

TMZ reached out to Francis ... he had no comment.

I call BS on this stolen sex tape story. 'Time sensitive nature?' Don't make me laugh. They both realized that this story generated zero interest and nobody was going to pay them anything for the supposed tape. People would rather watch 2 wombats F'ing.
Glad to see Joe has found a place where he fits right in - COUPLES THERAPY - with Flava Flav. lol. It doesn't get any lower or more desperate for cash than that.

Who honestly thinks it will never be released? Whoever had it I'm sure has another copy of it and some time down the road will leak it onto one of the tube sites or something. Not that anyone cares to see it anyway, would have been about as many people that care to see Hogan's sex tape lol.
