HK 'Dog Man' cuffed for voodoo ritual sex
Expels student's 'ghost embryos' with his magic wand
A Hong Kong "voodoo master" dubbed the "Dog Man" is in court accused of duping a 20-year-old student into ritual sex to expel "ghost embryos", HK's The Standard reports.
The victim, known only as Miss X, met 63-year-old acoustics technician Lo Fuk-yee* through his girlfriend Wong Mei-yin, "who was the janitor at X's school".
The scam kicked off on 4 October last year, when Wong visited X's flat. Miss X told Wong "she felt the presence of spirits in her sister's bedroom and often got ill after having sex with her boyfriend", and also "experienced abdominal pains during menstruation".
Wong diagnosed "ghost embryos", and later asked Lo to pop round for a ritual expulsion.
The Standard elaborates: "Lo joined the two women in the bedroom, and with X's consent, got her to strip and lie on the bed. X said Lo then fondled her belly, claiming it was a ritual to expel the first ghost embryo. She had to have sex with him to expel the second."
Prosecuting barrister Kenneth Wong Yiu-fai explained to the District Court that X "agreed to moan to make the ritual effective".
The next day, Miss X was conned into performing oral sex on Lo at Wong's place, after which the latter told her not to get in touch again.
The penny dropped a month later when X read "a news story about a prosecution for a similar deception".
Lo and Wong are charged with "conspiring to procure the student to have sex with him". Both have pleaded not guilty.
Back in January, truck driver Au Yeung Kwok-fu was jailed for six years and nine months for posing as a Taoist Mao Shan master to have his evil way with an aspriring model.
Later that month, we reported on the 47-year-old Hong Kong woman who was conned out of HK$1.5m (£120,000) and persuaded to have sex with two similarly bogus Taoist masters. ®
