A sex addict who asked a 15-year-old schoolgirl to sign a "slave contract" has been jailed for nine months.
Bruce Gordon Gyde, a 42-year-old storeman, admitted having unlawful sexual intercourse with the girl and possessing objectionable publications, including images of bestiality and sado-masochism. The Wellington (Johnsoville) man met the girl, who was sexually inexperinced, on the internet chat room. She said she was 16 and he told her he was 25.
After meeting in January and having sex, the pair began exchanging e mails and developed a sado-masochistic relationship. He referred to the girl as "puppy" and she called him "master". He than told her he was 35 and she admitted she was 15.
The teenager agreed to sign a slave contract with Gyde. He told her to visit on of his friends, perform oral sex on him and take photographs, which she did.
Lawyer Dale La Hood said Gyde was remorseful and was voluntarily getting treatment for sex addiction through the Stop programme. The girl had been a willing participant and was not angry with Gyde.
Wellington District Court judge Susan Thomas sentenced Gyde to 9 months' prison with conditions that he receive pshychological assessment and counselling. He was granted leave to apply for home detention.
