PETALING JAYA: Erotic blogger Alvin Tan Jye Yee wants to continue having “a lot of sex” with partner Vivian Lee and he intends to keep recording the trysts.
He has absolutely no regrets about the furore the sex blog he shared with Lee has caused.
“We're going to stick together and have a lot of sex, and record it too,” he told The Star yesterday.
The Asean scholarship holder is currently under the spotlight for his raunchy images on the Internet, but neither he nor his girlfriend are frightened by the attention.
“My parents aren't really saying much about the morality of it they are more concerned I will be in trouble with the law or my university (National University of Singapore). They aren't saying, oh my gosh, this is so morally shameful,” said Tan.
The Malaysian couple also said they were keen to leverage off their fame and had set up a function on their now-blocked blog where fans can send them e-mail and be kept abreast of their lives.
“This is a critical period, and we intend to use this time to build a following. Perhaps we won't do videos and such anymore for public consumption, but we could be bloggers or endorsers. We want Alvin and Vivian to become a household name, a pair known for being a sexually open duo,” said Tan.
The couple revealed that they had received masses of fan mail, including propositions for sex from men and women.
Tan also brushed off the threat of legal action, saying he didn't believe they were “in much trouble legally”.
“People are advising us to lie low, to focus on getting lawyers or dealing with the National University of Singapore (NUS).
“But we are focusing on leveraging on this for more lasting fame,” said the NUS law student, adding that on Monday his blog had received over 100,000 visitors.
Tan, who is expected to face a disciplinary hearing by a National University of Singapore (NUS) board later in the month, said he was currently preparing for the encounter and would decide what to do afterwards.
“I'm surprised they gave me so much time to prepare. I'm just going to stand my ground. Everything I want to say, I've already said to the media.”
He admitted that although his life “did not depend” on staying at NUS, he would rather not face expulsion.
Tan said the couple intended to stay together for the foreseeable future, although they admitted they are not “your traditional monogamous, exclusive couple”.
