Mark Cox, 22, who is appearing at court after breaking into a woman s house to steal her knickers and SEX TOYS
A police officer s son with a bizarre underwear fetish broke into a woman s house to steal her knickers and SEX TOYS, a court heard.
Mark Cox, 22, pocketed a set of house keys belonging to former school pal Emma Pinches, 21, after going to a party at her home in February.
The hospital porter then used the keys to let himself in to the property while Emma was out to pinch her underwear and DILDOS.
Magistrates heard she became suspicious when items of lingerie and sex aids started to go missing over the next few weeks.
Prosecuting Julie Costello said: The day after the party the victim noticed a set of house keys were missing.
Over the next few days she started to notice that items of her underwear were going missing as well as her sex toys.
Emma suspected Cox may be responsible when she received a text from him in March to ask whether she would be out with her boyfriend that evening.
Police then searched Cox s home and found a large quantity of women s underwear, sex toys and lubricant.
When asked why he had a large sized bra he told them it was because he was a large size .
Officers also discovered CS gas spray as well as a police helmet, handcuffs, jacket and stab vest in his bedroom.
Cox claimed he had bought the police uniform items off eBay to use for kinky role-playing sex romps with his ex-girlfriend.
At Northampton Magistrates Court on Monday Cox pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary, one count of possessing a weapon designed for the discharge of CS gas and possessing a police uniform.
Defending Alistair Evans revealed his client had taken the items at a time when he was being driven by a fetish for women s underwear.
He said his client had bought the police uniform as memorabilia because his father and grandfather were both police officers.
He added: He accepts he had taken the items of underwear from the victim s house but there was no element of vandalism and he had caused no form of damage to the woman s house.
The CS spray was bought from a garage in France.
It has never been used.
The court was told Cox has since undergone counselling in a bid to overcome his underwear addiction.
He will be sentenced at Northampton Crown Court next month.
I m sure you re tired of seeing these, but I m just letting you know that we ll be taking a Stranger than Slash Fiction break starting now. Slash Fiction short stories will be updating throughout June and July while I move, and they ll likely spill into August while a friend of mine visits from overseas. These slash fiction short stories will very likely have more porn than plot, and they re probably more what you d expect in a typical gay sex story, so hopefully they ll still be to your taste!
There will be some recurring characters throughout the stories, but none of them are attached to a longer plot. As usual, if you would like to see more of the characters in the short stories, feel free to comment on the story telling me that! Also, a very small number of them may be broken into two updates!
If any Guest Writers submit short stories, they ll likely be mixed into this bunch. The Update Schedule page will be updated in detail once I get my ducks in a row next week.
- A knight fighting a siren
- An administrative assistant crushing on his sexually forward boss
- A budding journalist interviewing a typecasted actor desperate to do something new
- A dirty cop interrogating a burglar
- Stories with group sex
- Stories with sex toys and sex machines
- Stories with non-consensual sex
- Stories with voyeurism
Stranger than Slash Fiction s Return
Stranger than Slash Fiction will return in either August or September. I ll likely give you a heads up once it gets closer to its return.
I just want to make sure I m not scrambling to update it while juggling a lot of other things, and I don t want an episode to be interrupted with a short story.
I ve been feeling like the quality of Stranger than Slash Fiction keeps suffering because I m rushing, so I d prefer to just avoid putting myself in a situation where I ll continue to sacrifice the quality of the story due to my poor planning.&nsbp;
ABOVE: Olympic medallist Louis Smith
I had 100 people over for my house warming party. It got quite rowdy.
Olympic gymnast Louis Smith
23rd May 2013
By Andy Jones
HE S the Olympic star who won medals as well as the hearts of the nation.
Louis Smith dazzled on the Strictly dance floor and the Olympic pommel horse, but there is more to this boy than pirouettes and pikes.
The 24-year-old has been breaking in his plush new pad in Peterborough, Cambs, with raucous house warmings, and Louis reckons he is coping nicely with being a national heart throb.
His new man cave boasts an outdoor hot tub and a secret chill-out room behind a sliding bookcase with a 75in TV and bean bags.
And it has already been the scene of raucous parties, some of which have rather scuffed the Olympic hero s new interior.
He says: I had 100 people over for my house warming party. It got quite rowdy.
I knew the house would get pretty f***ed up but you have to have a party, don t you?
The ice bucket that goes with the hot tub got smashed as soon as we all piled outside. I didn t go mad. I mean, what do you expect to happen when you have a party and a hot tub?
The gymnast has sensibly invested his cash in property rather than cars and flash holidays, and is very pleased with his new pride and joy.
My biggest extravagance has been the house, he says.
It s awesome. I was really keen to get a hot tub.
I originally installed it because it has so many sports benefits like water jets for massaging sore muscles.
But I won t lie, it is also very good for entertaining.
Despite flaunting his buff physique (in and out of hot tubs) there is one part of his body Louis dislikes.
My hair, he laughs. Only because it takes quite a while to maintain and sort out.
I think I d rather just shave it off and start again. So yeah, my hair s quite annoying.
We catch up with the gymnast while he breezes around a 5km urban assault course in London to promote Samsung s new Galaxy S4 phone.
Now a bona fide celebrity, Louis is getting all sorts of off ers, not all of them quite as user friendly as phones.
He reveals: Thankfully my agent sorts out most of the weirder stuff, but I did get a cock ring sent to me in the post.
Not by a fan, but by some company wanting me to promote it. I can t remember what actually happened to it.
We press to find out what became of the saucy gift, but his agent will only add that it has gone missing .
Louis admits he was slightly more tempted by the Strictly Come Dancing sequin suits in which he twirled to victory with partner Flavia Cacace.
He says: They wouldn t let me keep any of them.
They all cost at least 300 each so they are swiped back the moment you finish your dance.
I ll be honest, I m not sure I d have found many places to wear them again anyway.
While we leap over concrete pillars and hurdling steps, Louis gets wolf-whistled and heckled by women and men of all ages.
The grannies are the most screechy, he laughs. People usually react very positively so I enjoy that, but you have to keep your feet on the ground.
While he claims to be shy, Smith admits his new book, out next month, will feature a few topless shots just to keep all the fans happy .
Fellow Olympic hero Sir Bradley Wiggins has bashed Team GB athletes for profiteering through commercials and game shows, but Louis takes this with a pinch of salt.
He explains: I get There s that guy from Strictly! as much as I get spotted for my medals.
But that s fine.
You can t change how people recognise you. It s just nice to have achieved positive things in the first place. I have worked hard, and as long as I don t lose focus I should be able to do other things.
Despite his new-found fame he trains 10 hours each day
I don t do any weights, it s all on the apparatus, he insists, flexing his huge arms.
It s a regime that has taken its toll on the tired star.
Louis says: My lateral ligament on my left knee has needed an operation since way back in 2009.
It hurts quite a lot, as does my Achilles.
It s not the operations that are the problem, it s the recovery time. You just have to get through it.
This hasn t stopped his dancing though.
If I hear one of my tracks from Strictly come on, I do bust out a few of the moves, he says. It s almost a reflex.
Thankfully I don t hear them on any nightclub dancefloors.
Who d be doing ballroom moves in a nightclub?
He auditioned for X Factor in 2008 and got a flat No from Simon Cowell, but Louis hasn t given up on singing just yet.
He admits: I sing but I m not doing anything publicly for a while.
I love singing in the car, in the shower, getting dressed.
But I am not releasing an alb um or anything.
We gently put to him that he could do a collaboration with childhood pal and former JLS member Aston Merrygold.
Louis answers: I am mates with JLS from way back, but to be honest we are both so busy it s almost impossible to catch up with them anyway.
If the young gymnast didn t have the vocals, at least he d have the back flips.
Louis was taking part in the Phones 4u Urban Boot Camp, launched to celebrate the new Samsung Galaxy S4 s health feature.
Boot camp runs every Tuesday and Thursday until June 4.

A new sex shop opens on Poole High Street
Sex shops are renowned for their controversy, with their sexualised displays often causing shock among local residents who would rather banish them from the high street.
New sex shop Purrfectly Discreet , upset traders and shoppers on Poole High Street last week, after it opened its doors opposite an outlet selling school uniforms.
The store, which has an over 18 s warning label on the door offers a range of sex toys, clothing and accessories . Shop owner, Joe Budimir, says he believes the store will be very popular with local residents and shoppers
Since being open, everything has been really positive . We have had a really big response from couples, single sex females and the general people across Dorset
I don t think it makes an impact at all that we are opposite the (school uniform) clothes store .
We have stayed away from the style of the typical seedy back of the high street type sex shops with the blacked out windows and have done a lot of work on the visual design to ensure it is appropriate.
Shop owner John Budimir
Mr Budimir also has plans to expand the business and has applied to Borough of Poole for a sex shop licence that would enable him to also sell explicit R18 DVD s . However, before a licence is granted the council will take the stores location into consideration.
We believe we have done all the things that the council have asked, we are not sleazy looking . If we are granted a licence the council can then add further restrictions including opening times and what is allowed in the windows, said Mr Budimir.
Local shoppers and traders fear that the appearance of the store, which features two large posters of women in lingerie in its windows, will have a negative effect on the image of the town, which is often used a walkthrough for tourists heading to Poole Quay.
Adult stores have increasingly become regular icons in town centres across the country with Ann Summers reporting a 400% increase in their sex toy sales last year.
This boom in provocative products can be accredited to the unprecedented success of the erotic fiction novel Fifty Shades of Grey, which became the UK s best selling book of all time last August.
Do you think sex shops should have a place on our high street ?

Oxbridge students have topped the sex toy spending league table (Picture: File)
Students with an impressive IQ may have a higher sex drive than the average undergraduate, new sex toy sales figures suggest.
Cambridge University tops the sex toy spending league table, with its students splashing out 9,793 on bedroom aids in the past 12 months.
They were closely followed by their Oxford rivals who spent 9,689 on luxury sex toys including rabbit vibrators and soft bondage gear, online retailer Lovehoney revealed.
Lovehoney said its Google Analytics analysis of customer addresses appeared to show a heightened interest in sex amongst students in the Russell Group of elite universities .
Fifty Shades of Grey was a big hit with young women and we have found students orders reflecting that.
We are getting a lot of orders for soft bondage gear handcuffs, floggers and spankers are all popular.
Oxford Bar Society secretary, Victoria Adelmant, added: Maybe the single Tabs have less enjoyable sex than Oxonians do and thus need more supplementation.
Manchester University came third in the spending league table, while seven out of the top ten spending colleges are from the Russell Group representing the UK s leading top 24 universities.
Top 10 spenders on sex toys
1. Cambridge 9,793
2. Oxford 9,689
4. Lancaster 4,103
5. York 3,751
7. Southampton 3,383
8. Warwick 3,213
This Friday night, May 17, I’ll be hosting the monthly gay party DICKSLAP at the Eagle. There will be go-go men, there will be Jell-O shots or Jell-O injections (as seen above) and there will be hundreds of Oxballs1 sex toys that I will be giving away. My huzzzzband, DJ TROUBLE, will be there playing records in his underpants.
See there’s that, too.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge reveals she doesn’t need ‘tools’ for a healthy sex life…
Alesha Dixon has been gracing our screens from her plummy position as judge on the Britain’s Got Talent panel, alongside David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden, but what’s the songstress like behind doors? In a no holds barred interview, she lets fans into her bedroom for a sneaky peek into her private life…
And we’ve learned one thing in particular; when it comes to sex toys, Alesha Dixon is NOT impressed.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge may have split from cheating husband MC Harvey in 2006, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to bag herself a “battery-operated” boyfriend – although, she continues in her Fabulous interview, she doesn’t judge women who favour the good vibrations:
“Fair play to women if they want to empower themselves or want to go out and buy all their little sex toys.”
Mr Match Maker: Simon Cowell is reportedly playing cupid for Alesha Dixon (WENN)
“Not my cup of tea personally. I like serious relationships.
I have a healthy sex life and I don’t need any tools.”
We’re a little confused as to why a sex toy would turn a serious relationship into something less meaningful, but never mind.
At least Alesha was clear on exactly what she does want from a man (and no, she didn’t mention his dancing skills!):
“For me it’s just about being with someone you have great chemistry with and connect with as a person and have trust in.”
Thank goodness she has Simon Cowell on hand to help – insiders at Now have revealed Mr Nasty has turned Cupid in a bid to find Alesha a man.
“Simon jokes with Alesha that she doesn’t want to end up single like him in her fifties.
She laughs it off, but has complained that it’s hard to meet guys.”
What do you think of Alesha’s ‘hell no!’ approach to sex toys?

“3D Printing, Guns, & Sex Toys: Q&A with 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental” is the latest offering from Reason TV.

“Craftsmanship has been democratized, in the sense that anybody who can get a file can make a gun potentially from undetectable materials,” says 3D Systems1 CEO Avi Reichental, “the reality is that you could have done it 10 years ago if you were a good machinist, but now you don’t have to be a machinist you just need the file.”
ReasonTV’s Tracy Oppenheimer caught up with Reichental at the 2013 Milken Institute Global Conference2 in Beverly Hills, CA to discuss the present day realities and future possibilities of 3D printing.
Reichental notes that some of the more controversial items may fall in the realm of sex toys and pornography, but this is to be expected. “We live in a society that has lots of brightness, and there is also lots of darkness, and there are lots of shades of grey.
My sense is that 3D printing is going to mirror and reflect all elements of society.”
