Joel Dommett is now a very famous man thanks to his stint on this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. His penis, has its own fame and has released a statement about that Catfishing incident.
You may recall that during Joel‘s thoroughly entertaining time in the jungle (where he came runner-up) Joel opened up about how he was catfished into being sexual on a skype call.
Well, now he (sorry his penis) has written a statement about his new found fame and the perils of cyber sex.
“The following is a statement written by Joel’s Penis before it went, with Joel, into the Jungle. His Penis wrote this as damage limitation just in case pictures of it arose in the tabloids and on the internet while Joel was in there and Penis was unable to defend itself.
“Recently, after being a relative recluse for Joel’s entire life (with the exception of the odd drunken public appearance), after a stupid error on Joel’s part there are now pictures of me, ‘Joel’s part’ on the internet. I was quite happy being a completely unknown penis and this new found fame is frankly horrific for me and Joel, although we have both realised that it’s better to laugh about it than cry about it (Only Joel can Laugh but we can both cry…).”
“Joel was Catfished a long time ago by somebody pretending to be someone else on the internet and was lured into Skype sex. That Skype sex session turned out to be entirely fake and has come back to bite Joel in the ass (Joel’s Ass is a good friend of mine and also features in the video). It’s a genuinely horrific thing for another human being to do, to take advantage of what is private of someones life and make it public for everyone to see.
“He obviously chose to go into I’m a Celebrity Get me out of Here and people may argue that you are forfeiting a life of privacy with that choice, which he agrees with to a degree but there is a line. A cruelly obtained video of Joel ‘jerking off’ (you may prefer other terms such as ‘jerking the chain’, ‘strangling the monkey’, ‘washing the carrot’, ‘humiliating the unicorn’ or worst of all ‘masterbating’) in a beanie (seriously who wears a beanie when they ‘polish the bath taps’?! I’m supposed to be the only one who wears a hat during sex. He is a hideous human being and I’m embarrassed to be attached to him.) which he thought was private is crossing that line.
“This is a new type of crime and it’s not just happening to people of below average levels of fame like Joel. Below is a link to an interesting article from the BBC about the problem and the number for the Samaritans which is a good place to start to sort it out if it has happened to you.
This isn’t the first time Joel’s penis has been the centre of televised attention. A couple of year’s ago he made a documentary for Channel 4 about penis painting. Yes… he went there.
We recently spoke to a lawyer about the steps you can take if you should find that you’ve been a victim of revenge porn or had your pictures hacked or stolen.
