LAW NOT BLACK AND WHITE – it’s fifty shades of grey.

The law is not black or white. It’s fifty shades of grey.

Safe words are the new black, or red, or whatever. Always use a safe word, is the lesson of the day…

A fellow who whipped a woman during a Fifty Shades of Grey – inspired sexual encounter was charged with assault but found not guilty by a jury of 10 men and two women.

According to reports, “the woman, who he met on a dating website, had been inspired by the EL James best-seller and started taking part in threesomes and bondage sessions.

Mr Lock said the pair had discussed acting out a master/slave sex fantasy for months before it happened on August 6 last year.

Mr Lock said they agreed to use the code word ‘red’ if either of them wanted to stop the role-play but, he says, the woman never mentioned the word.

She claims he put a rope around her neck, padlocked her wrists and made her bend over on the bed where he whipped her 14 times, cause 14 centimetre bruises on her backside.

After the whipping Mr Lock had sex with the woman and left her tied up while he used his computer.

The woman was able to send a text and a picture of herself tied up to a friend asking him to call the police because she had been ‘chained up and whipped like a dog’.

Mr Lock eventually released her and told her to leave which is when police turned up at his residence and noticed the woman in the street in a distressed state.

Asked by defence counsel Roger Thomson if Mr Lock and the victim had read Fifty Shades of Grey, Mr Lock replied: “That’s where we got the idea from.””

Outside of court, the fellow (who is a jeweller apparently) said that he was relieved at the verdict and that the jury “had seen sense”.

He said: “It’s the right verdict. This case should never have reached court. As far as I’m concerned, it was a consensual activity between adults.”

The court heard the couple took part in group sex and bondage together and the woman had the words “Property of Steven Lock“ tattooed around her genitals.
