Last April, we told you about a grisly gay sex murder case in Hunan, which involved a gay singer and the death of six men in elaborate sex games involving sado-masochism, erotic asphyxiation and hanging.
We’re not sure what’s taken the Hunan court to get down to action, but here goes:
According to officers, Zhou Youping published a public “invitation” on a gay website from September 2009, attracting volunteers with high payment to play sex games including hanging, which involves a high risk of death.
Zhou told police he knew the hanging game was risky so he never tried it, but he enjoyed watching others do it, the report said. He said he usually left the room after he felt satisfied, leaving victims still hanging, the report said.
Zhou argued that the victims were volunteers and should have freed themselves.
Legal experts say that Zhou’s behaviour indicates “indirect intent to kill”, which under Chinese law, is the equivalent of murder. So, be warned, all of you out there into erotic asphyxiation games — get them down before they go, or into the gallows you will go!
