Flasher suspect claims public masturbation was 'groin massage'

A 60-year-old Swedish man who says he was massaging his groin is on trial for sexual harassment after three teenage girls claim they saw him masturbating at a public pool.


The incident took place in June 2007 near the pool at Långviksbadet in Kalmar in southern Sweden, reports the Oskarshamns-Tidningen newspaper.

As the girls, who were 13-years-old at the time, gathered beneath the pool’s diving board, they noticed a naked man masturbating on a bench outside the nearby sauna.

“He looked at us and smiled when he did it. We were shocked and thought it was disgusting,” said one of the girls in court.

The 60-year-old admits that he saw the girls while he was sitting naked on the bench, but denies that he was masturbating.

“I haven’t had an erection in the last ten years,” said the man.

“I’m engaged in a number of therapies, including TFT, thought feel therapy. It involves tapping on different points [on the body].”

In his defence, the man also presented a note from his doctor elaborating on his groin problems.

The man’s lawyer is calling for the charges to be thrown out, claiming the girls were too far away to have seen what the man was doing.

A verdict in the case is expected on December 23rd.
