A pornographic film shot at the Pyramids of Giza has sparked outrage in Egypt and an investigation by the government.

“A set of sexually explicit scenes was illegally filmed inside the Giza Necropolis by a foreign tourist while visiting the site,” confirmed Egypt’s Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damati.

The Antiquities Minister added that the film, shot by Russians and uploaded with English subtitles nine months ago to three pornographic websites, has sparked a government investigation into the matter.

The Minister added that surveillance cameras and equipment would be installed at the Pyramids in the coming months to ensure that similar incidents, and other security concerns, are tackled.

In the film, the actress named Aurita complains about having to visit the historic sites.

“This f***ing sucks,” says the actress as she drives past the Pyramids. “What is there to look at? It really sucks, even our resorts are better.”

Meanwhile, the male co-star in the video expresses similar discontent, saying he wished the pyramids would be destroyed.

“What’s there to see? I hate f***ing pyramids,” says the unidentified man who also uses derogatory homophobic terms to describe vendors at the Pyramids, “I wish they would be f***ing destroyed.”

Throughout the video, the woman in the video complains, exclaiming that a Pyramid in the distance is “unfinished” as she points at it.

The clip at the Pyramids is part of a series of clips in which Aurita and her male co-star perform numerous sexual acts on an airplane and in Egypt. In one clip, Aurita flashes herself at the Pyramids while exclaiming “my tits and the Sphinx.”

In another clip, she gives fellatio to her male co-star at a discrete location meters away from the Pyramids.

The pair filmed several clips in Egypt, including one at a discrete location in the desert. During that clip, the female actress exclaims “I’m dizzy,” after having intercourse with her male co-star. The man responds “It’s because of the good sex.” The woman in the video, however, disagrees, saying “No. It’s because of the sun.”

Knowledge of local officials?

While the Minister of Antiquities urged an immediate investigation, Egypt’s Al-Masry Al-Youm reported that the film was shot with the knowledge of local security officials.

“The film was shot in broad daylight and with the knowledge of the officials in charge of the area,” said Osama Karar, the coordinator of the Popular Front to Defend Antiquities in Egypt to AMAY, adding that the videos reveal the name of an Egyptian tour company and the identity of a tour guide accompanying the pornographers.

Nevertheless, the video shows the two porn stars with a larger tour group before leaving and exploring the site on their own. In the video, the male co-star says “we have one hour [to explore the site alone],” indicating that the film may have been shot without the knowledge of the tour operator.

However, Egyptologist Bassam al-Shamaa told News Time Africa that the film was shot in an area prohibited for tourists, adding that surveillance cameras are not enough to secure Egypt’s antiquities and monuments.

“A full security cordon must be installed to prevent such incidents – which demean Egyptian civilization – from reoccurring,” said al-Shamaa.
