Four friends who drugged their wives, watched as they raped each others’ partners and then congratulated each other for ‘putting on a good show’ face jail in Singapore.
One woman was raped several times over a period of at least seven years by different men while unconscious, having been drugged and blindfolded by her husband, Channel News Asia reports.
The case came about when the woman found naked pictures of herself in a chat on her husband’s phone.
The four men, who are under gag orders placed on them by the court, pleaded guilty on Monday to two charges each of conspiracy to rape, with various other charges taken into consideration.
They are K, M, L and N.
According to Channel News Asia, the main accomplice linked to their cases is a fifth man, J, who married his wife in 2008 and with whom he shares four children.
K, M, L and N pleaded guilty to two charges each of conspiracy to rape, with various other charges taken into consideration. The case came about when a woman found naked pictures of herself in a chat on her husband’s phone
The court heard that the men became acquainted with their respective accomplices online in 2010, on the forum Sammyboy, as well as other platforms dedicated to wife-sharing fantasies.
The court also heard that the men chatted about such fantasies, swapped details of their sex lives and shared explicit footage and images with one another.
J, 41, previously tried to get his wife to watch pornographic videos to see if she would be up for a threesome.
His wife expressed that she was definitely against the idea.
After this, J allegedly came up with a plan to sedate his wife for other men to engage in intercourse with her.
J became acquainted with K, 44, who was married with no children and was working in business development, on Sammyboy from 2010 to 2011.
They agreed to use a sedative on their wives to allow other men to rape them.
After conducting research, they decided on a drug that they understood could render a person unconscious.
Using the drug that he had acquired from J, K put it in his wife’s alcohol sometime prior to 2012.
He placed a blindfold over his wife after she lost consciousness and told J to come round.
J then raped K’s wife while K watched and photographed it. They then repeated this act in 2012.
In February 2013, J’s wife remarked that she was feeling ill and J used this opportunity to give her the drug before letting K rape her.
J set up a closed-circuit television camera in his bedroom to livestream naked images of his wife and to broadcast his sex life.
K also livestreamed from a webcam in his bedroom.
Prosecutors said that after viewing this, the men would sometimes congratulate each other for putting on a ‘nice show’.
After their crimes, the two men shared sexual assault and rape images and ‘continued to reminisce’ about their acts, the prosecutors said.
The discussions between the men led to J’s wife discovering the crimes in January 2020.
J was asleep when then his wife found a video playing on his phone and then his Skype conversation with K.
The messages contained explicit images of her and older messages showed that the men had been exchanging their wives for sex.
After J’s wife woke him up, he deleted the incriminating chats and visited K’s home with his wife as she had requested to do so.
During the conversation, K said that he had engaged in sex with J’s wife while she was unconscious.
K also admitted to rendering his own wife unconscious so that J could have intercourse with her.
J’s wife filed a police report on January 2, 2020.
Footage and photographs taken from both men by the police resulted in the identification of others who took part in the activities.
Another man in the group of four, L, 52, who was a business development manager and had three children with his wife, first became acquainted with K online between 2010 to 2011 and then with J.
J sedated his wife in 2013 before L raped her while J recorded.
M, 45, who was a company director with three children, met J on Sammyboy in 2010.
In the same year, J gave his wife a drug after she said she felt sick and, when she was unconscious, J called M over before M proceeded to rape his wife.
The fourth man, N, 37, was a food deliveryman and raped J’s wife between 2017 and 2018.
The three prosecutors who oversaw the cases called for a prison sentence of between 19 and 23 years and 24 strokes of the cane for K and M.
They asked for 11 to 16.5 years’ in prison for L, with another six months’ prison time in lieu of caning.
They will also be asking for 17 to 21 years’ in prison and 24 strokes of the cane for N, who did not have a partner, Channel News Asia reports.
