For many years there has been a large online demand for smutty pictures of celebrities. Scandal and nude images are not uncommon in the celebrity world, but these images are unlike the tasteful and demure photos of Rhianna featured in French magazine Lui.

These images are fake, erotic and can only be described as porn. The fake images involve the manipulation of photos and the attaching of celebrities heads to the bodies of porn stars in every sexual position and act conceivable. It is a well known fact that these graphic images are fake so why do they have such a large fan base? And what effect can these fake images have on their creators and their fans?

Fake porn image’s of celebrity’s are created with photo-shop and are considered by their creators and fans as a form of art. The creators receive no pay for their fake images and thrive of pure self satisfaction and the praise of fellow admirers of this so called art.

The higher the quality of the images and more realistic the look, the creator starts to develop a reputation. Fans often have a preference to works of certain fakers who publish their work on online forums under pseudonyms.

On the forums creators get their work critiqued by other fakers and fans. It seems on some level fake porn images of celebrities is taken quite seriously by some people. Occasionally creators are pitched against each other with people voting who’s work is the best. From this it is implied there is a hierarchy among creators, with the faker who produces the best work being credited with a dare we say ‘good’ reputation in his/her field of work.

By means of these fake images creators and fans get a thrill of getting round the limitations imposed on them by Hollywood. Sexual scenes are often implied by Hollywood movies but they never show overtly erotic scenes. By creating these porn images fans and creators are able to get off and experience fantasies that would other wise remain as ideas in their own minds.

Michael Grothaus is a journalist who has written a particularly interesting article for Vice describing how two men’s lives have been affected by addiction to fake celebrity porn. Michael firstly interviews a man who remains anonymous going under the pseudonym Mr Charles.

Mr Charles became addicted to online celebrity porn and has as a result lost everything. Everything being his wife, his two daughters and his job. The only constant in his life now is fake images of celebrity porn.

Grothaus interviewed a second man which fake images of celebrities have had the opposite effect on. His name is Marco and he is a creator of the images. In the interview Marco describes how in several ways creating these images has saved him fro his own self-loathing.

There is a particular demand for pornographic images of certain celebrities and fans often make requests to creators to make images of particular celebrity. Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Sarah Michelle Gellar are all popular in the world of pornographic fakery. These fake images subject unwilling celebrities to immoral objectification. For both creators and fans the images take away the reality of what women are truly like. This leaves them with a fantasy of women that real women can never live up to.

Michael Grothaus has revealed how the world of celebrity fakery can have both a positive and negative impact on people’s lives.
