After initially denying that his viral sex video was a ‘fake’, APO Hiking Society member Jim Paredes admitted that he is the one in the clip.
In his latest blog entry, he said that the video was real and it was not meant to be seen in public.
“The video was real. It was private, and not meant for public consumption. I do not know how it became public," he wrote on his blog “Writing on Air.”
He then said that he is owning up to his mistake for this will “set me free.”
"There are already too many lies and liars in this world. I do not wish to be a part of that cabal. I have chosen to be truthful because I know that painful as the truth can be, it will eventually set me free," he said.
Jim also suspects that those who disagree with his political views might be the people responsible for disseminating the video.
"I can only surmise that in this ugly season of toxic politics, muckrakers determined to neutralize my influence by violating my privacy and digging up dirt on me are at work.”
Jim said that he is "a flawed person, a human being, much like everyone else."
"I made a mistake, I was irresponsible. And I am truly sorry.”
"I stand in bottomless sorrow and contrition before my family who are reeling from the hurt and aggravation, and the embarrassment and shame, that should only be mine. I pray that they be spared any more wicked trolling by those who would revel in their pain.”
