A woman was having sex blindfolded with a ‘male cancer patient ashamed of scars’, before discovering it was actually her female mate, wearing a strap on penis. Yep, welcome to THAT part of the internet.
A jury at Chester Crown Court has heard how a woman assumed she was having sex with a man called ‘Kye Fortune’, who was recovering from a brain tumour and was hiding his scars.
Only she wasn’t, it was her 25-year-old friend Gayle Newland who had catfished her, and persuaded her to wear a blindfold when they met for sex in a hotel room.
The alleged victim got talking to ‘Kye’ on Facebook in 2011, and believed him to be half Filipino, half Latino. And a man.
‘Kye’ told her how he’d been in a car accident, and medics ended up finding a brain tumour, so he was in hospital and not well enough to meet her. But they did often speak on the phone, and the complainant told police that he had a high pitched voice.
The complainant told police:
He was saying how much I had helped him get through his illness. (He said) it was a sign, we should get married, we should have kids, we were going to do all sorts of things.
Eventually, they arranged to meet at a hotel in Chester.
There was a stipulation though, ‘Kye’ insisted that she wore a blindfold the whole time, due to him being ‘anxious about the way he looked’, and how he couldn’t walk properly due to nerve damage.
The complainant said that when she entered the hotel room, ‘Kye’ was in the bathroom, and the bed was covered in rose petals and Hello Kitty teddy bears.
She put the blindfold on, and a ‘shaking Kye’ came in, telling her that he had signed himself out of a private hospital in Manchester.
They then had sex.
Well, Kye didn’t, he doesn’t exist, but Newland wore a ‘prosthetic penis’, which I assume is a strap on. Kye then left to return to ‘hospital’. It then happened a few more times, in several hotel visits, before Newland was rumbled.
The complainant said:
When I was having sex I grabbed for the back of his head and my hand got caught on something. It did not feel right. I was sat on the bed, he was standing up.
Something in my mind said ‘pull it (the blindfold) off, pull it off’. I just pulled it off. Gayle was just standing there… I just couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t believe it.
Straight away she held her hand down over her face and said ‘it’s not what you think’.
Newland denies five counts of sexual assault between February and June 2013. The trial continues.
It’s difficult to comprehend this. How can you not suspect anything FIVE times, when having sexing with a man you’ve never met or actually seen in person?
