Sex with Taoist truck driver leaves woman fully satisfied

Ritual leg-over prompts career leg-up, HK court hears

The Hong Kong truck driver who persuaded an aspiring model he was a Taoist Mao Shan master, with the power to grant her career success in return for sex, really was able to boost his clients' careers, according to a satisfied customer.

Au Yeung Kwok-fu, 55, is in court on nine counts of "procuring unlawful sexual acts by false pretences" after he had his evil way with the 19-year-old wannabe clotheshorse between April and December 2007. The only reported result of the guru's attentions was an unwanted pregnancy, which the aspiring mannequin subsequently aborted.

Au Yeung's defence, however, has presented a witness to testify that the Taoist trucker did indeed offer a full service - including the exorcism of the spirit of another terminated pregnancy. According to the South China Morning Post, the unnamed woman told the court she consulted Au Yeung in 1998 when she was "troubled by her aborted child" and "kept hearing a voice in her head saying, 'Mum, it is time to go with me'".

After Au Yeung deployed fu - written talismans to mark the woman's body - and burned paper offerings, the voice vanished.

Evidently impressed, the customer returned for help improving her life and career prospects. This involved four further rituals, "two of them sexual", which provoked the desired result. The woman reported: "I had a better career. I got into a big company to be a make-up artist, and got promoted shortly afterwards. At first I entered the company as an intern make-up artist, but I was promoted to formal make-up artist after three months."

The witness, who got married in 2000, concluded: "I had a perfect family, my husband loved me very much. The household income was very steady, at least the money was enough so that I didn't need to work anymore."

The case continues. ®
