Videos and photographs of Justin Lee, the playboy son of a prominent Taiwanese financier, having sex with dozens of women, said to include models and local celebrities, have been leaked on the internet and are being spread widely via downloads and bootleg copies, reports China Times, our Chinese language sister newspaper.
Viewers of the footage may be watching acts of rape, however, as Lee is accused of drugging some of the women before having sex with them in a semi-conscious state while filming the proceedings for his own collection and is currently assisting the police with their inquiries.
The possibly criminal nature of the images has not prevented — or has possibly enhanced — their notoriety. As soon as any website posts the photos, it catapults to the top of the viewing charts. One website, which posted 27 photos, has quickly garnered 1,000,000 hits since Sept. 7.
Some websites are even offering his videos containing sex acts with 81 women free of charge. It is reported that 57 of the women Lee filmed may not have given their consent to the acts.
