Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee saga still goes on even after Sumptuous Erotica is down

Alvin Tan Jye Yee and Vivian Lee have already closed their blog, Sumptuous Erotica,  in which they have shared their sexually explicit photos with public. But the photos and videos, one of them showing the couple acting out a rape scene, are already out in the internet. And although it is closed, the issue is not : Their blog caused a lot of outrage in Singapore and to an extend in Malaysia. News of the blog and the couple have appeared in almost every major publication in Singapore and Malaysia. If they were planning to draw a lot of attention and become famous, they have got more than what they wished for. "Alvin Tan", "Vivian Lee", "Alvin and Vivian" type of searches dominated Singapore's cyberspace and they have been extensively covered in the media.

Although Alvin and Vivan have closed the blog, mostly due to pressure from their parents, Vivian Lee has no regrets making her sexual life public.[1] She said she sees nothing wrong in posting the nude pictures and videos of their sexual relationship on the Internet. She adds that the blog posts were intended to show the world that how much they loved each other."

And although some netizens call the incident as moral decay, many of their peers agree with her. Most young ones do not consider the couple's posting of erotic pictures and sex videos of themselves on a blog to be immoral:
Production manager Joshua James Peterson, 26, said while he was shocked when he read the news, he did not think the couple had crossed the line. "They can do anything they want as long as they do not force their ideas upon others," he said. Student Kan Wai Min, 18, said although he felt the two should keep their sexual activities private, he did not think it was immoral for them to display them publicly.[2]

On the other hand, the couple seems to enjoy their extended fame. Malaysian couple released a new video on YouTube (Latest Update from Alvin and Vivian - 17 October 2012) in which they cheerfully discuss about the saga they have created in Singapore and Malaysia. In the video below, they answer some of the questions and fan mails(!). They confirm in the video that they did not want to shut down the Sumptuous Erotica blog but they have still done so due to family pressure.

Alvin and Vivian have no regrets. They say they will continue the blog (they claim the shut down is temporary) and what they love to do. But they will probably not continue to make it so soon.

Latest update from Alvin and Vivian

The couple's fame now reached outside the borders of Singapore and Malaysia. Many  news agencies around the world, such as Agence France-Presse (AFP), reported about them. In an article named Student sex blog causes stir in Singapore, Malaysia[3], AFP wrote Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee remained unrepentant quoting Tan for saying "If there is one thing that I really like about myself, it is my body".
