A 27-year-old woman has bagged eight-year imprisonment for tricking a female pal into having sex, using a prosthetic penis with the unsuspecting victim.
She has subsequently been found guilty of committing sexual assault by using a prosthetic penis without her victim’s consent.
The defendant had posed as a male on Facebook, giving her victim the impression that she is a man.
The complainant said she was persuaded by the defendant to wear a blindfold at all times when they met, and only found out she was having sex with a woman when she finally took off her mask.
The accused claimed that her victim always knew that she was pretending to be Kye Fortune — a Facebook profile she created at the age of 15 using an American man’s photographs and videos.
She added that they both engaged in role play while struggling with their sexuality.
The accused said no blindfold was used as they had sex on about 10 occasions at the complainant’s flat in Chester, United Kingdom, in 2013.
The defendant also told the court that she did not strap bandages to her chest or wear a swimsuit and a woollen hat to conceal her appearance.
The defendant spent “hundreds” of hours talking on the telephone to her friend as Kye and more than 100 hours in each other’s company, Mirror says.
These encounters, according to the complainant, included her wearing a blindfold at all times together — including watching television, going on a car journey also wearing sunglasses and even sunbathing.
Prosecutor Simon Medland told the jury: “This manipulative, deceitful and very crafty young woman went to such astonishing lengths to control the complainant’s life and make her do the things the defendant wanted her to do.”
