< 1 min read
Reported in “ The Straits Times” 21/01/2014

The accused was charged with 2 counts of sexual penetration of a minor.

The minor chanced upon the accused’s profile on a website, which stated that he engaged in “bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism” (BDSM). He stated that he was looking for a submissive partner and the minor initiated contact with him. They both started communicating via e-mail and she revealed her true age to him. Within a week, the minor went to the accused’s flat and consented to the accused performing BDSM acts. They engaged in those acts again a month later.
