Colin Farrell has won a legal ban on his sex tape. A judge has ruled the steamy video - which the actor made with Playboy model Nicole Narain - cannot be sold, distributed or posted on the internet until the lawsuit is resolved. Farrell's lawyer, Martin Singer, said: "We're pleased with the result. My client's privacy rights should be preserved." The Irish heartthrob is now hoping the preliminary injunction will be made permanent. He is suing Narain for breach of oral contract and invasion of privacy, alleging she tried to sell the tape with two porn businessmen, which the glamour girl denies. Farrell's lawyer offered to drop the lawsuit against Narain if she joined forces with them to stop the tape being made public, but she decline. Singer said: "We offered to drop the case and not seek one penny of damages against her if she would join with us in our action. As of today, she has refused." The 14-minute tape is said to show naked Narain poking out her pierced tongue and winking at the camera, while Colin says: "I could do this breakfast, lunch and dinner".

It has also been reported that the model performs several positions from the Kama Sutra. The handsome 'Alexander' star is not the first celebrity involved in a private sex tape scandal - both Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson's raunchy home videos have been sold to the public.
