Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese (real name Heather Renee Sweet) was once featured in a hardcore lesbian porn sex tape; one starring role she might just prefer to forget.

This week, clips leaked from the porn video feature the statuesque stunner engaged in erotic sexual positions with several women-and a stiletto pump.

The leaked video footage that appeared on the Net this week is reportedly from a 1999 Pin-Ups 2 fetish film.

In the video, Von Teese is shown in sexual situations with several women and using a stiletto pump as a sex toy.

The burlesque stripper also starred in several other erotic videos during her younger years, including Romancing Sara, Matter of Trust and Decadence.

The film in question, as well as the other erotic vidoes, are not all that secret an affair.

Pin-Ups 2 is listed in Von Teese’s film credits on IMDB.com and on Wikipedia.

Fleshbot.com claims the video has even previously been sold through Von Teese’s official web site.

It is not clear why the footage has suddenly sparked a media frenzy now when it has been rather public knowledge for years.

Von Teese, who was previously married to goth rock star Marilyn Manson from 2005 to 2007, is an admitted fan of pornography.

“Amateur pornography is a great thing. You can find anything for everyone on the internet,” Von Teese said, according to MonstersandCritics.com.

“So long as no one’s hurting anyone or involving children then hey, what’s wrong with that?”

Credited as one of the instigators of the burlesque revival, Von Teese rose to stardom by fostering a sexy, but classy image.

Although Von Teese originally worked as a stripper before her rise to stardom as a burlesque queen, she has overall managed to maintain a rather clean-cut image.

Her career in burlesque stemmed from her previous history as a fetish model and she credits pinup queen Bettie Page and burlesque dancer Sally Rand as some of her career inspirations.

In addition to her position as a spokesmodel for MAC Cosmetics, Von Teese was recently hired as the new face of Wonderbra and is set to design a new line of lingerie for the brand.

So far Wonderbra has declined to comment on what effect, if any, Von Teese’s porn past might have on her deal with the company.
