There has got to be an easier way to get some:

In a courtroom drama as confusing as it was compelling, a woman has been convicted of pretending to be a man and using a deep voice, a prosthetic penis and a blindfold to trick her female friend into having sex with her during a two-year relationship.

Gayle Newland, 25, persuaded her victim to wear a blindfold throughout the more than 100 hours they spent together during their relationship, which started online.

Her 25-year-old victim told Chester Crown Court that she had kept the blindfold on during about 10 sexual encounters. She remained blindfolded when the pair were sunbathing together and even when they “watched” a film at her flat. The deception, she said, only ended when she pulled off the blindfold while they were having sex to see her friend Gayle wearing a strap-on prosthetic penis.

Gayle exclaimed: “It’s not what you think.”

No, that pretty much has to be exactly what she was thinking, catching her boyfriend being a woman with a strap-on.

And I’m going to go right on the record and say that unless everybody has consented, you know you’re not supposed to do that, right?
