N.Y. Man Arrested After Sex Tape Surfaces on XTube
NEW YORK — A New York man who filmed a sexual encounter with another man and then posted the video to a XTube.com faces five felony charges.
The victim told New York police that he met Eric Wilson last month online and hours later went to his East Harlem apartment where they had “consensual sexual intercourse.”
A day later, the victim found himself co-starring in an XTube video, unbeknownst to him.
According to The Smoking Gun, which broke the news, Wilson used the online handle “ciremuse,” and posted videos showing him engaging in sexual activity with many other men. XTube is a user-generated content site.
His XTube page reports that his “video views” exceed 6.5 million and that he has nearly 5,000 subscribers on the site.
Describing himself as a “Sexy Brown Stud,” Wilson describes his sexual interests as “Giving Anal Sex, Giving Oral Sex, Making Movies.”
Wilson’s XTube page includes hundreds of comments from fans complimenting him on his videos, which open with titles like “20-Year-Old Inexperienced Spanish Boi Returns,” “Beefy Italian Cub Bubble Session 11,” and "Monster Meat Feast Pt. 1."
Wilson was arrested for two felony counts of unlawful surveillance and three counts of dissemination of an unlawful surveillance image, also felonies.
He is being held on Rikers Island in lieu of $15,000 bail.
Last year, a 20-year-old Pennsylvania college student was arrested on a variety of criminal charges after he uploaded an explicit video to XTube of him having sex with a former girlfriend.
The 24-year-old victim said she didn't give Christopher Scott permission to disseminate the video, which had been viewed about 36,000 times.
