Pornographer Fined £1,000 For Having A Threesome On The Tube

By Holly Brockwell on at

We've seen some deeply weird unpleasant things on the tube. People openly doing drugs, people harassing each other, and of course the infamous guy who shat on the platform (do not click if you don't want to see exactly what it sounds like you're going to see).

But porn actor George Mason took 'going underground' a bit too literally when he went ahead and had a whole entire threesome on a tube train in front of other passengers. Grim.

Mason, his partner Nicholas Mullan and an unknown third person three-way-boned between Leicester Square and Waterloo, a four-stop stretch of the Northern Line. TfL estimates that this particular journey takes 3 minutes, which is fairly unimpressive.

The actor filmed the whole thing, and would have got away with it had he not then decided to post it on Twitter seven months later, at which point it was reported to the police. He was traced because he'd also posted another video that linked to an escort website, where he and his mobile number were listed. Amateur.

Mason admitted "outraging public decency" (a legal way of saying "being really gross in front of innocent humans") and got a £1k fine, while Mullan has to pay costs of £170 and do 12 months' community service. The other participant has apparently got away scot-free, since no one knows who he is.

While it's thoroughly gross to bring other people into your sexual activities without their consent, and doubly so on Britain's mucky public transport, we're not sure the outcome of the case gives out the intended message. Certain minds would consider a £1k fee (and a criminal record, admittedly) a small price to pay for a voyeuristic threesome on a train.

Magistrate Lucinda Lubbock told the perpetrators:

"The way it took place back in July, the seriousness of the offence, is exacerbated by the fact that it went on social media.

We feel that this is a lesson to both of you. As your defence lawyer said, you have been humiliated in the court of social media."

Please, people, keep it to yourselves. There's only one reason to take your kecks off on the tube, and it's not sex.
