Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in Iowa

videotaping

I know Iowa law with tape recording a conversation, that one participating party has to know about it - but what about with videotaping? I would like to include if the videotaping was done with a sexual act being performed without the consent or knowledge of one of the two parties involved. Is that legal to videotape a sexual act in the state of Iowa without the consent or knowledge of one of the two participants?

Aside from being morally repugnant, such an offense is punishable under Iowa law as a criminal invasion of privacy. One might also think that there are also federal statutes that are much more far reaching and punitive in their effect.
