There are a lot of videos online of guys picking up girls and video taping the interaction. They consider themselves players and usually go for sex the same day or next and assumably, that is the end of it.
Sometimes the womans face is visible and other times they are blocked out but a person who know them could probably figure it out.
Do you think this should be illegal? Do you think it is wrong to video tape?

There was a man video taping girls (16-19) secretly at a beach. The girls were doing normal beach things (laying out/playing volleyball/swimming/walking) in bikinis. The man posted this video on a pornography site.
Their parents of the girls were upset but the courts ruled that the girls did not have a reasonable expectation of privacy given that they were at a public beach, in public, with other people and they had willingly dressed the way they had and gone to the public setting.
So... if the guys in your scenarios are video taping the encounter in a public setting (park/mall/etc.) then the girl in question has no reasonable expectation of privacy and ergo it is perfectly legal. Just like you can't sue someone because you happen to be in the background of a picture they take of their family.
If the encounters were happening on the girl's property - her backyard, her porch, in her car, in her house... then there's potential for someone to get the courts to say it's an illegal invasion of privacy.

Whether it should be prohibited depends upon whether the context gives the other person a reasonable basis to conclude that what she is doing or saying is private. If she is being videotaped while sitting at a bar, that's public. If she is being videotaped in the bedroom, that is private and should be protected.0
