‘Spontaneous ejaculation’ defense rejected by Singapore court

So long, Chong.

So long, Chong.

The next time you feel like blowing a load on a stranger’s thigh while riding on mass transit — and hey, who can resist that — prepare a defense that’s better than Chong Weien’s. It’s not that the judge didn’t believe the 28-year-old psych major can’t keep his juice in the can. He just shouldn’t have… Well, let’s let the Straits Times tell the story:

On the night of Sept 14, 2006, the victim, a Chinese national studying in a different faculty, boarded a NUS shuttle bus to return to her hostel.

Chong, who was wearing a T-shirt and a pair of shorts and holding a jacket at waist level, pressed his crotch against her in the bus.

She felt something wet on her thigh and demanded to know what he was up to. Both of them then got off the bus.

Her male friend who followed them noticed damp stains on Chong’s jacket and realised that it was semen.

The woman, who cannot be identified as she is a victim in an outrage of modesty case, testified that Chong apologised and promised not to do it again.

Police were called and a DNA test confirmed that the semen on her thigh was his.

The court also heard from two doctors that Chong suffers from spontaneous ejaculation…

This cut no ice with District Judge Jill Tan, who said in her judgement: ‘Even if the accused did suffer from a spontaneous ejaculation on the bus, this did not rule out the possibility that he could have brushed his penis against the victim’s thigh as well.’

Chong will pay dearly for this escapade: 15 months in jail and three strokes of the cane. Which should come as no surprise — in 2002, he received the same sentence for a similar crime.

    The best line in the film adaptation of the movie Rogue Trader is the Singaporean judge declaring, “Offending a woman’s modesty is a very serious crime in Singapore.”

    The NUS campus where this guy was studying seems to be a hotbed of outrageous sexual activity. When I was studying there and living in the jungle-y King Edward VII hall, women came home to discover that their underthings, hung out to dry on the terraces outside their doors, had been snatched by parties unknown. There were stories of dashing young men in the hall giving chase of panty-snatchers, and it almost always seemed to involve a Japanese or Chinese national (i.e. not a Singaporean boy) which led me to wonder if it was all an urban legend given the subtle underlying xenophobia of Asian foreigners (not so much ang mohs like me) among Singaporean Chinese.
