When Sylvie struck up a conversation online with a stranger, she was ready for an evening of “50 Shades of Grey-type” sex with the gorgeous 37-year-old model with blue eyes and washboard abs. However, when she removed her blindfold after having sex with the man in his Parisian flat, she learned that her partner-in-kink was actually a balding 68-year-old man with glasses and a pot belly.
“I felt total disgust,” the woman said.
Sylvie is one of two women who are claiming to have been raped by 68-year-old Michel. A second woman has also reported that a man posing as “Anthony Laroche” using a model’s pictures enticed her into sex, and blindfolded her so she couldn’t see his true identity, Mail Online reports.
Michel was arrested and is being investigated for “rape by surprise,” however he says the situation does not constitute rape.
“For me, when she entered the bedroom naked, she was consenting,” Michel told police. “At that moment, she couldn't care less what I looked like. If she had asked just once if I was really the man in the photo, I would have told her the truth. Some women have a crazy side to them and like men who surprise them.”
The victim’s lawyers disagree and still says the situation is absolutely rape. Michel’s lawyer, or course, dosen’t see it that way.
“'Rape implies the absence of consent. Here the women were at no time forced. As for the photos of the model, they were too good to be true. I wonder if these women didn't knowingly close their eyes to the truth in more ways than one,” he told MailOnline.
