A 24-year-old man managed to trick a woman into having sex with him after telling her he had been poisoned and would only survive if he sweated it out.
The man, from Rotorua, New Zealand, pleaded guilty to sexual connection induced by threat and male assaults on a female in court on Friday, the New Zealand Herald reports.
He admitted telling the woman he had been forced to drink poison and said he would die unless she performed particular sexual acts on him within 48 hours.
Police reports said the man went to the victim’s house “red faced and bent over holding his ribs”.
They said he told the woman he had been beaten up and was forced to drink a poisonous liquid.
After telling her he would die within 48 hours if he did not sweat it out, the woman suggested he should go for a run.
But the man told her that would not work as he would need to sweat in a “particular way”.
Rotorua District Court also heard he told the female there was no antidote and the person who beat him up was flying overseas.
Shortly after the encounter the woman started getting emails from an unknown sender verifying the man’s story.
The messages told her she would need to perform sexual acts on the man four times and have sexual intercourse three times within the 48 hours to get rid of the poison.
It was heard the woman only consented because she believed the man’s life was in danger.
Only, after the two days the emails continued and became threatening.
The messages said people she loved would be hurt if she did not perform sexual acts on the man – this included performing acts up to seven times a day or until he fell asleep.
They also said she must allow him to film it on his phone.
If she did not agree to do it the messages said semi-naked photos of her would be posted online.
They also promised her a car and money if she did as she was asked.
But the victim began to suspect that the man was sending the emails as they included spelling mistakes and referred to him by a nickname he only ever called himself. Another giveaway was that one of the emails contained an incriminating link to Loveplugs, an online butt plug store. The link pointed to a completed PayPal transaction under the man’s name.
She also thought he could be behind them as he was the only person who was benefiting from it.
Only, when she confronted him he denied all knowledge and instead grabbed her arm and twisted it behind her back before knocking her to the ground, the court heard.
She then confided in a friend who persuaded her to report it to the police.
The man is due to be sentenced on May 25.
