A Londoner is heading to prison to serve 15 years after he posed as a woman on Tinder to trick straight men into having sex with him.

According to RT, 33-year-old Duarte Xavier from Wandsworth used Tinder to pretend to be a woman under the name “Ana.”

After talking to men using this persona, Xavier would have them show up to his apartment, put on blindfolds, and then engage in sex with him.

Xavier ended up tricking four men using this method, but two of the victims removed their blindfolds midway. They then fled and called the police, which resulted in two arrests. The second arrests led to an investigation that discovered Xavier was a serial offender.

According to GayPopBuzz, the Kingston Crown Court trial heard each of the victim’s accounts from their interactions with Duarte Xavier.

One man remembered how he had sex with Xavier in a park. He showed up first, as instructed, and put a blindfold on. Then, he waited before hearing a “feminine and Asian” voice. The two then engaged in oral and anal sex.

The man later shared in court, “I think originally she was saying about it was not practical to do it here, but I kind of insisted a bit and managed to change her mind.”

He then added: “It was her telling me about keeping the blindfold on, standing where I was because then she was going to go and leave the vicinity before I did. It was different, I have not experienced anything like that before.”

“He was so convincing,” said one of the victims who ultimately called the police and got Xavier arrested, “It was supposed to be a bit of honest fun between two consenting adults,” he said, according to British media. “I now have extreme stress, anxiety, panic attacks and depression.”

Vice-Judge Advocate General Michael Hunter was the one to sentence Duarte Xavier to a 15-year stint in prison.

At the sentencing, Vice-Judge Hunter said to Xavier, “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”, adding that the perpetrator had “demonstrated no remorse or understanding” of his victim’s position.

As Xavier heads to prison, the Metropolitan Police are still looking for any other potential victims.
