Copies of sex phone calls on sale

If the world hadn't suffered enough with Madonna's ill-fated Sex book, erotic audio tapes the singer sent her former bodyguard and lover James Albright are being put up for auction.

Two 17 minute cassette tapes containing messages Madge left for Albright, as well as an intimate home video she sent to him, will be on sale at the Gotta Have It! auction house in New York.

The tapes, which were recorded in 1992 and 1993, are expected to reach up to nearly £25,000.

Other items on sale will include Jimi Hendrix's first recording contract, which is estimated to sell for roughly £150,000, and a life-size prop of Arnold Schwarzenegger which was used for action sequences in the film Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
