Guys stripped for blackmailingbodybuilder

A Melbourne bodybuilder has pleaded guilty to 47 charges of blackmail after he posed as a woman to convince guys to strip and perform sex acts online, then threatened to make video footage of them public on gay websites.

23-year-old Shawn Rye (pictured) from Croydon even threatened to put pictures and videos of guys on their Facebook pages, alerting their friends and family to their sexploits if he didn’t receive hundreds of dollars from them.

The Age reports that Rye would pose as a “young and sexually available woman” and trick the guys – some local, some overseas in the UK, America and Canada – into stripping and masturbating, promising “she” would then do likewise.

Telling them he’d recorded video of the encounter, Rye would then demand between $100 to $500, saying he’d leak the footage if the money didn’t come through. It worked – he got almost $8,000 from various men before the police caught up with him.

He’ll be sentenced next week, and may face up to five years in jail.

A former youth champion bodybuilder, Rye was unemployed at the time of the incidents and said he needed the money to pay for the $300 worth of protein powder he drank each week.

Here he is ironically dressed as a cop…

not too smart - but then again, body building/steroid using says it all.... I wonder how he will like posing as a female in prison? On the bright side he will be getting all the the protein he needs and it won't cost him $300 a week.

I just can't stop looking at TheOldies avatar. Funny as!

What I want to know is why the guys stripped and jerked off for Mr Rye without asking him as her to appear on cam as well?

Also $300 a week for protein, my gluts! That guy must be on the cheater stuff for sure.

Why do I find this story funny? lol. As vain and superficial as this sounds with a body like that he could of done other things more appropriately. Poor fella aye.

oh my he could have become a high end escort and cleared $1000 in an hour with one client - karma is a bitch and I am sure in prison he will have to pay it all back big time

More info here:

"Rye would pretend to be a young and sexually available woman on webcams and called himself either 'Sam' or 'Melissa'.

He would play a pre-recorded video of a young woman to the men on his webcam and then urge them to strip naked and masturbate on a promise that 'she' would then strip naked.

When the men had performed the sexual acts, Rye would show a recording of what they had been doing on the computer screen.

He would then send a text message demanding that the men pay him money or the video recording would be released to family and friends via Facebook and other web pages."
