It's a man, baby!....Just Kidding

I don't frequent Otter like I used to, but came across the following story and couldn't help but think you all would love it.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-merseyside-34258993
Woman who posed as man guilty of sexual assault

A woman who posed as a man to dupe her friend into sleeping with her has been found guilty of sexual assault.

Gayle Newland, 25, demanded the other woman wear a blindfold when they met, and used a prosthetic penis while carrying out the assaults.

Newland, of Willaston, Cheshire, had told a court the pair were engaging in role play and fantasy.

But a Chester Crown Court jury found her guilty of three sexual assault charges.

She was cleared of two other counts of the same charge.

Newland had told jurors the other woman had known she was female, and both of them had been struggling with their sexuality.

She had denied using a blindfold, and said she did not strap bandages to her chest and wear a woollen hat and swimsuit, as the victim had alleged.

But during the four-day trial she did admit to creating a fake Facebook profile in the name Kye Fortune.

Newland contacted the other woman on Facebook after creating a fake profile in the name of Kye Fortune
The victim told the jury how she met "Kye" online in 2011, and the pair struck up a friendship.

Kye initially told her he was not well enough to see her due to being treated for car accident injuries and a brain tumour.

But the pair spoke frequently on the phone, the court heard, and eventually arranged to meet for sex at a hotel on the condition the woman wore a blindfold - because Kye was embarrassed by his scars.

They went on to spend more than 100 hours in each other's company in hotels and the victim's flat, with the assaults taking place between February and June 2013.

The deception was finally uncovered during their final sexual encounter, when the victim removed the blindfold and saw Newland instead of Kye.

'Elaborate deception'

She insisted she had always believed Kye had been a man, telling the court: "In hindsight I wish I had ripped that mask off sooner."

Adjourning the case for sentencing, Judge Roger Dutton said Newland had "serious issues surrounding her personality".

He warned her she may face "serious consequences" when she is sentenced in November.

In response, Newland shouted: "How can you send me down for something I have not done?"

She broke down in tears and repeatedly said "I don't understand, I don't understand", after the verdict was returned.

The judge thanked jurors for their "careful consideration" of the case and said it would present a "difficult sentencing exercise".

Det Insp Clare Coleman, of Cheshire Constabulary, said it was "important to remember there is a victim at the heart of [the case]".

"This was a highly elaborate deception where Newland abused the trust that the victim had in her," she said.

"She has been extremely upset by what has happened and there is no doubt there will be a lasting psychological impact on her."

Newland was released on bail prior to sentencing.

You've been gone so long you forgot how much people hate long posts with no bolded text?

This, and also the title is deceptive due to poor grammar. I was expecting an actual "man baby" like an adult man who acts childish. I'm not a grammar Nazi by any means, but the comma (or lack thereof) between "man" and "baby" changes the meaning entirely.

Re: It's a Man Baby!....Just Kidding

My girlfriend mentioned this to me last night and I thought she was making it up, or had been pranked by an Onion-ish article on her Facebook feed.

But it's real! And totally bizarre. Thinking the "victim" knew all along that the "dude" was really a woman and was just combating her loneliness by playing along.

This sounds to me like the "victim" got the guilts about having lesbian sex.

Either that, or she's really, really stupid.

If the second is the case, then Gayle is guilty of taking advantage of an idiot.

I don't buy it. Every relationship I've had that involved me being blindfolded the entire time was completely trustworthy.

Ah, yes. Is it the classic "I didn't know it was rape until I regretted it" defense? Or is it the 50 Shades of Grey defense (I just wanted what I read about, so being blindfolded for 100 sexual interludes didn't seem strange)?

I am neither a woman, nor have I ever been one. I almost dread going here ... But ... Women (the four of you who are still in Otterville), can't you tell the difference between a warm body and a cold hunk of plastic? I won't even ask about or mention the other explicit details.

By the way, if we're trying to channel Austin Powers with the thread title, the actual line is, "That's a man, man"

Actually, it's both. Two different lines at two different points of the movie.

I know a way you could find out for yourself, or we could just ask mhg83. I'm cool with either option.

Some of the new silicone dildos are quite lifelike. It might be hard to tell, especially if she didn't have a lot to compare to.

But, still... did they use condoms?

I see a nice enough thigh gap, but those shorts completely cover her enchilada (unless I'm missing something).

Don't ask me. I hate penetration. If I wanted that I could be with men.

Yeah, I knew I was going to regret this ... I'm not talking about shape or hardness, what about body heat (temperature)? (Why am I continuing this? Why, oh why?)
