A former telco advertising director admitted to two charges of underage sex with a teen who allowed him to take sexually explicit photographs of her.
The pair engaged in “bondage and discipline, dominance and submission sadism and masochism’’ acts or BDSM in short, the court heard.
Kwek Chuan Shan, 35, was an employee of StarHub, when he had underage sex with the girl on seven occasions in November 2012.
The girl, who was 15 at the time, created an account on a dating social networking website in mid-2012 and chanced upon Kwek’s profile in October that year.
He openly stated that he engaged in BDSM and that he was looking for a “submissive’’.
The court heard that the girl initiated contact with him, and within a week of befriending one another, she went to his flat in Redhill Close.
While there, she agreed to let Kwek take photos of her while engaging in such acts after he assured her that he would not circulate them.
Kwek also had protected sex with her.
They met again on Nov 27 that year and she had oral sex with him.
When she left the flat, she received the sexually explicit photographs of herself that he had taken earlier.
The incidents came to light after a church friend informed the minor’s father that he had received sexually explicit photographs of her. A police report was made on Dec 5 that year.
District Judge Low Wee Ping adjourned the case to Jan 21. The maximum punishment is 10 years’ jail and a fine on each charge. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
