A woman claims that her friend, who is also a woman, used a prosthetic penis while pretending to be a man and went about tricking her into having sex. This is one very bizarre case being heard across the pond in England in the Chester Crown Court and for sure it is going to leave you scratching your head!
Gayle Newland, 25, is accused of romancing her friend via online, and then eventually over the phone, using the persona of a man named Kye. Newland did this for two years before taking it a step further into the bedroom. Newland and the woman met in 2011 after Newland set up a fake Facebook account under the name Kye Fortune. The relationship eventually led to the bedroom and the woman is accusing Newland of tricking her into bed under the pretense of being a man.
When this started Newland and this woman did not know each other. Newland befriended her as a woman while the charade of Kye was going on. So this woman knew Newland as a girlfriend and Kye as her boyfriend, not knowing the two were the same person.
Right about now most are asking how this relationship could possibly move into the bedroom without this woman having a clue as to who she was having sex with. How is it even remotely possible that this woman didn’t recognize her friend while being that up close and personal with the woman? It gets better, the unnamed complainant has an explanation for that.
According to the BBC News on September 8, Newland’s fake online persona infatuated this unnamed woman and they continued with an online and phone relationship for about two years. This entire time the woman never once saw Kye. It seems that Kye conjured up an entire story to stave off meeting this woman face to face because it would blow her cover. Newland concocted a story for Kye as a guy down on his luck who was in the hospital and recuperating for the majority of those two years. This is what Newland claimed, saying he was too sick to see her so the two would not meet in person.
Kye supposedly had a brain tumor and had been in an accident, which left him with muscle problems and feeling very insecure about his looks. Eventually they had to meet and Newland concocted a way to do this. Newland as Kye told the woman the only way he would meet her is if she would wear a blindfold to a hotel in Chester so the two could get intimate. Kye supposedly was feeling very insecure about his looks from the accident and his brain problem, so she obliged.
The woman went to the hotel to meet Kye, who was in the bathroom when she arrived to the room. She saw the bed covered in rose petals and “Hello Kitty” stuffed animals. The blindfold went on and she got in bed waiting for Kye. He came out of the bathroom and they had sex, the entire time with the woman wearing the blindfold. (You just can’t make this stuff up.)
The woman told the police that she wore the blindfold because Kye was “”anxious about the way he looked” and “could not walk properly due to nerve and muscle damage.” Apparently this woman cared enough for Kye to go along with his idiosyncrasies because this blindfold charade continued each time they would meet to have sex.
According to The Independent, eventually Kye visited the woman’s home and the truth was revealed. The woman told the investigators that something just told her to pull the blindfold off and that is what she did. The woman described seeing Gayle instead of Kye and how shocked and disturbed this made her. “Gayle was just standing there. I just couldn’t believe it,” she said.
The woman told the investigating officer: “I couldn’t believe that person would want to do something like this to me… these last two years had fabricated this world around me.” According to the BBC “The alleged victim told Chester Crown Court she had believed she was having sex with a man.” Then when it was Newland’s turn she denied the five counts of sexual assault she is being charged with. The trial is still going strong and you can just imagine what it must be like being a juror in that courtroom! Soon the court will find Newland guilty or not guilty of those five counts of sexual assaults.
