A PORNOGRAPHIC DVD, which shows a couple having sex on Woodbury Common, is being investigated by the police.
The film also shows the young woman and older man openly urinating in public for sexual gratification in East Budleigh, Colaton Raleigh and Yettington.
The amateur DVD, circulating around Exmouth, found its way to the Journal office this week - where reporters immediately alerted the police.
Exmouth Sergeant Phil Godfrey said the police would do what they could to identify the woman - who in the film claims to be a 19-year-old called Traci - and serve her with a public offence order.
"It's totally unacceptable behaviour. If anybody sees this sort of thing going on, they must dial 999," said Sgt Godfrey.
The amateur film begins with a drive along the A376 Exmouth road to the Otter Inn car park, at Colaton Raleigh, where a waiting young woman introduces herself to the film maker - who calls himself John Dare.
It is unclear exactly when the film was shot but, as the popular family pub beer garden is deserted, it is thought to be in the autumn or early winter.
While sitting on the beer garden bench the woman is shown urinating - an act she repeats on a bench outside the Sir Walter Raleigh pub, in East Budleigh, and in a BT telephone box in Yettington.
The DVD also shows the couple having sex and urinating in a Woodbury Common car park in an area frequently used by dog walkers and for training Royal Marines.
Clinton Devon Estates' commons warden Bungy Williams said the estate would be working with the police to help catch the culprits.
"We don't allow that sort of thing to go on at the common," he said.
An Otter Inn spokesman said: "This is not good for trade. We are a family orientated pub. I would like the police to investigate."
Yettington councillor Peter Barnard said: "It's perverted. I think it's disgusting."
Sir Walter Raleigh owner Graham Edwards said the film was unlikely to be recent because the bench outside the pub was removed two years ago.
"Hopefully the police will find out who did this and act appropriately. I am more than happy to assist the police with their inquiries," said Mr Edwards.
The police would like to hear from anyone who can help identify those involved.
