Making your own sex tape seems simple enough, but before you get your partner and webcam and half-ass it, delve into the mind of movie genius, Tommy Wiseau. His sex scenes in The Room have become a cult classic, and he was kind enough to share his bedroom advice with AskMen for the Top 10: Tips For Making A Sex Tape – By Tommy Wiseau

Hi Room Fans,
We’ve been receiving a ton of emails and comments for Tommy and Wiseau-Films so I just wanted to be clear that we’re just a fansite. We’re not the official site of The Room. So if you have questions or comments for Tommy and his company, please direct them towards his official site. We appreciate it.
Give BREAKING DAWN to Tommy Wiseau.
Those of you who know what I’m talking about can probably skip the video portions of this column. For those who don’t, Wiseau is the director and star of the cult hit THE ROOM, which plays once a month in L.A. on five screens, and sells out every show. Apparently conceived as an awards-worthy romantic tragedy, THE ROOM is one of the funniest movies of the past decade, largely due to Wiseau’s inconsistent acting, bizarre accent and appearance, and complete inability to understand how actual human beings think, speak, and interact. With 20/20 hindsight, he will tell you that these were all deliberate choices designed to make you react. But then, he also claims to be American.
Ah, the Ziegfeld Theatre. The refined, legendary movie house in New York City has played host to hundreds of A-list affairs since its 1969 opening, premiering hundreds of critically-lauded, star-studded films. (Oh, hi Steven Spielberg, Julia Roberts, and Daniel Radcliffe!)
Last night was a different story. After spending months showing Tommy Wiseau’s cult film The Room at New York’s dingy Village East Cinema on the last Friday of every month, Saturation Films — the folks who stage the screenings — decided to class things up a bit by relocating this month’s midnight screening of “the Citizen Kane of bad movies” to the Ziegfeld.
Tommy was kind enough to give me an hour of his time. With The Room’s massive cult following, he is on a whirlwind tour, appearing at screenings while working on his own upcoming projects. Check out this in-depth interview with Tommy to find out how his theater background affected him, what mistakes he thinks he made in The Room, what he is working on next, where he came up with the idea for The Room, the symbolism behind the spoons and football, and much more — including an improvised scene to prove he can add emotion to anything.
Seven years ago, independent filmmaker Tommy Wiseau released a low-budget relationship drama called “The Room.” Originally it played at only one theater in Los Angeles, but slowly the film garnered a huge cult audience. Wiseau has been screening the film around the country at ever-larger venues, and this month he will show it at the AFI Theater in Silver Spring.
