Plenty of porn sites offering purported “spy cams” of men changing in locker rooms are simply paid actors undressing and showering with full knowledge they’re being taped. And then there’s footage allegedly produced by men like these two suspects, who were arrested on charges of illegally filming men disrobing at the FX Leisure Centre in Gateshead, England, and then posting the footage online.
A hidden video camera is believed to have recorded up to 28 men in various states of undress. The filming came to light when an alleged victim was tipped off about images of his naked body appearing on a gay website. The businessman was horrified to log on and find footage showing himself getting changed at FX Leisure in Team Valley, Gateshead. He tipped off the club who then contacted police. Two men have since been arrested. One club regular said: “The man who uncovered this was a businessman who is a FX member. He was approached by two gay men who had seen him naked on a website.
“He thought it was a joke at first but then realised he had been filmed in the changing room. He went straight to the club management to complain. Some of the members are not too happy about their manhood making an unwanted guest appearance on a gay website.”
As if you weren’t self-conscious enough changing in front of other people. [Mirror]
