Stephen Port, a gay man from London, has been accused of drugging, raping, and murdering a handful of men he found on gay wesbites and apps. Obessessed with "drug rape" pornography, Port seems to have acted out his sexual fantasies on unwilling victims. He now stands trial for his crimes.
Port is now facing 29 separate charges including four murders, seven rapes, four indecent assaults and administering a substance with intent. Allegedly, he secretly drugged 11 out of his 12 victims to make them unconscious, according to The Independent. He supposedly killed four of them.
“All of the offending behavior,” prosector Jonathan Rees QC told the jury, “Was driven by one main factor, namely the defendant’s appetite for having sexual intercourse with younger, gay males while they were unconscious through drugs."
“This is a case about a man who in the pursuit of nothing more than his own sexual gratification, variously drugged, sexually assaulted and in four cases killed young gay men he had invited back to his flat.”
Port also filmed himself raping several unconscious men. He seemed to have a particular affinity for "twinks" (gay slang for small and skinny, usually hairless or boyish men) and allegedly used a handful of drugs to knock them out: "poppers or bottles of amyl nitrite; viagra; M – also referred to as Meow Meow; T or Tina, a name for crystal meth; and G, either GHB or GBL in its liquid form," according to The Guardian. Four victims' bodies were found in a churchyard less than a mile away from Port's residence.
Port continues to deny all allegations. The trial is ongoing.
