A man who posed as a woman on multiple dating apps to lure straight men into having sex has been jailed for 15 years.

Duerte Xavier allegedly lured men with female images on dating apps including Tinder and then arranged blindfolded sex meets, the Kingston Crown Court heard.

The court was told how his voice “sounded feminine and Asian” over the phone and it was reported Xavier performed a sex act on one of the men before having sex in a park.

Xavier then went and met another man at a flat after speaking on app Lovoo and then WhatsApp where he demanded the victim be his “obedient toy”.

He then allegedly sent a picture of a blindfolded guy receiving a sex act as an instruction to his victim.

When the man discovered Xavier was behind the act, he left but Xavier reported pestered him to meet again but the man called the police.

Xavier, from Bournemouth, denied the six charges of causing a person to engage in sex without consent.

Now, on Friday (November 9), Xavier was sentenced to 15 years in prison according to the Evening Standard.

Passing the sentence, Vice-Judge Advocate General Michael Hunter said: “You have been found guilty of what can only be described as a campaign of deception and obtaining sex by pretending that you were a woman.

“By pretending that you were an attractive and sexually adventurous young woman, you tempted them into engaging in sex with you.

“I have taken into account your deliberate and cruel tactics that you carefully used to subject your victims to this activity.

“You have demonstrated no remorse or understanding of the position of your victims.”
