A life story is creating a buzz in the the cyber space.
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 16 — A Malaysian National University of Singapore (NUS) law scholarship holder has stirred up controversy after he posted photographs and videos of his girlfriend — also from Malaysia — and him having sex, on his blog, which he has been forced to remove after it went viral in recent days.
Alvin Tan Jye Yee told Yahoo! Singapore that he had taken down his
joint sex blog with his girlfriend “because there’s been too much
trouble for this and we want to stay out of trouble”.
The NUS student said erotic photos and videos of himself and his
girlfriend going viral was “exciting”, according to Yahoo! Singapore.
On the site “Sumptuous Erotica“, Tan and his girlfriend Vivian Lee
said they loved posting details of their sex life on the web “for
everyone to enjoy” and that they uploaded only self-made content.
Tan and Lee (picture) are understood to be back home in Malaysia.
According to Singapore’s Straits Times, Tan went to Singapore on an
Asean scholarship in 2004 and attended Xinmin Secondary School and
Raffles Junior College.
The newspaper said he went on to NUS on an Asean undergraduate
scholarship and took a leave of absence last year to start his own firm.
He told the Straits Times that he aims to return to NUS in January to finish his studies.
Tan began posting the photos and videos of himself and his
girlfriend, a 23-year-old Malaysian whom he got to know through
Facebook, on his private blog last month.
On Sunday, he posted the blog’s address on the popular HardwareZone forum, the Straits Times reported.
“It exploded from there. The last I checked, we had about 20,000 page views when previously we had only about 1,000,” he said.
“What can (NUS) do? Terminate my scholarship or expel me? I can’t say
I will be fine with it, but if it happens, I can accept it. I’ve
started my company and I have my own savings,” he added.
In an interview with Yahoo! Singapore this morning, Tan talked about
why he started the blog and about facing the consequences of his
“One fine day, we were just fooling around and my girlfriend had the
idea of taking nude photos, just taking them, not necessarily uploading
them. With more and more photos that we took, we started to want some
sort of recognition for our work so we started uploading them on FB but
we blurred out the critical parts,” he said.
As the photos kept on getting flagged and being taken down, he said they started the blog at the end of September this year.
He and his girlfriend have even been approached by companies in Singapore to endorse sex toys and lingerie, he disclosed.
