A man has been placed on the sex offenders’ register after being caught trying to have sex with a bicycle.
Robert Stewart was discovered in his room by two cleaners at the Aberley House Hostel in Ayr, south west Scotland, in October last year.

On Wednesday Mr Stewart admitted to sexual breach of the peace in Ayr Sheriff Court, where depute fiscal Gail Davidson described how he had been found by the hostel workers.

She said: "They knocked on the door several times and there was no reply.

"They used a master key to unlock the door and they then observed the accused wearing only a white T-shirt, naked from the waist down.

"The accused was holding the bike and moving his hips back and forth as if to simulate sex."

Both witnesses, who were extremely shocked, notified the hotel manager, who in turn alerted the police.

Mr Stewart was placed on the sex offenders’ register but his sentence was deferred until next month.

He is not the first man to be convicted of a sexual offence involving an inanimate object, however.

Karl Watkins, an electrician, was jailed for having sex with pavements in Redditch, Worcs, in 1993. ... sex126.xml

wtf? I don't know why he's on the list unless they're worried he's going to start stealing peoples bikes to have sex with them.

Also, welcome back jase. Long time no see.

Hmmm, the guys actions are very disturbing, but I don't see why he should be put on a sex offenders list. Maybe if he was doing it out in public in the middle of the street or something, but he wasn't...

Hi Ian ;)

What you have to bear in mind I think is that the UK ViSOR is a much broader concept than the North American equivalents -- you can be put on there for all sorts of silly things (indeed the whole thing has been condemned as a serious invasion of human rights by several EU countries, and a contravention of the EU Conventions on the issue).

This one was particularly stupid though, so I thought I'd share it with you...

I don't see why the sex offenders list exist at all. Pretty blatant abuse and there have been no declines in the crimes or recidivism as a result.
