Screech claims he used a body double.

“The sex tape is the thing that I am most embarrassed about,” Dustin Diamond explains in a new interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Back in 2006 at age 29, the man better known as Screech from Saved by the Bell released a sex tape called “Screeched.” While Diamond swears that he used a stunt double, he still regrets the decision he made in the hopes of making a quick buck.

On “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” Diamond discusses his experiences as a child star, how much he regrets some of the things the ghostwriter said in Diamond’s memoir Behind the Bell and, of course, “Screeched.” He explains that the idea for the sex tape came about when he learned Paris Hilton reportedly made $14 million off her sex tape. “And my buddy said, ‘$14 million? Holy smokes, where’s the Screech sex tape? You got to be worth at least a million.’ And I thought, ‘Yeah — yeah, maybe.’ And that’s as simple as it was.”

If it makes you feel any better about watching it, he claims that it’s not actually his body in the tape: “It’s my face but nothing else.” Oh, phew!

Even more regrettable for Diamond was that his sex tape was a 3-minute short film.

Dustin Diamond's "sex tape" earned those scare quotes.

Hitler would have never regretted the war of the Soviet Union, even if he knew how it would turn out. To Hitler, the war against communism and the Soviet Union was inevitable and the main purpose of his life. He believed that if the German people were "worthy", they would win and, if not, then they deserved defeat.

@ferop.poref very witty -- you gave me a good laugh.  I had Windows ME for many years, so I can relate to this.  And yes, Hitler really made a bad choice turning an ally into an enemy.

Big nose = Big Hose.  Did you see the tape and yes it is him.  They don't use body doubles in porn.

@david9999 I'd disagree on Hitler's mistake. It wasn't opening the second front, it was declaring war on the United States.

@JimVan Well I can tell you from experience that equation does not work.  Not even close.

Hitler declaring war on the US was immaterial. He just hastened what was already coming. War between Germany and the US was inevitable and Roosevelt and Hitler would have found a way to make that happen.

@RussCastella@WehttamAkiso I respectfully(and I do mean respectfully) disagree. Roosevelt had wanted the US to declare war on Germany long before Pearl Harbor but couldn't get public support behind it due to a sizable German-American population and the fact that we only declared war for defensive reasons in those days. Simply put Roosevelt had no legal basis for war with Germany. 

Additionally while the USSR was a sizable enemy it was also woefully outmatched technologically and was winning by the the time Germany declared war on us. Additionally while attacking the USSR was opening a second front by that point the western front was basically non-existant being pushed back to the Spanish border with France. Britain was for all intents and purposes done as they had no capability to invade continental Europe and was getting it's rear end handed to it in the middle east. 

By not declaring war on the United States we would have been relegated to providing nothing more than the material assistance we were already providing, there would have been no invasion of Europe by the Allies which would have given Germany the ability to keep all it's supplies and troops on the Eastern Front fighting the Russians. The only reason the Normandy landings happened when they did was largely due to Stalin insisting we do so to relieve pressure from the Eastern Front. We, in the beginning, operated on a "Pacific First" strategy as we felt Japan presented the greatest threat to the United States and it's interests. 

 Now, the fact was Hitler wasn't going to beat the USSR. I wouldn't argue that in anyway, but there was a very real possibility of Germany forcing a stalemate and pushing the Soviets out of the portion of Poland they controlled and other parts of Eastern Europe. Germany declaring war on the USSR was inevitable. Germany hated communism and the USSR hated fascism.

@WehttamAkiso Hitler declared war after Pearl Harbor. USA would of attacked Germany either way because it was allied with Japan. He officially declared war to keep an almighty face. Opening a second against a sizable enemy was absurd.
