It was a ride to remember.
A South Carolina couple has been arrested after authorities say they had sex on a Ferris wheel and then posted a video of the act on a popular porn site.
Eric Harmon and Lori Harmon, both 36, are each facing a series of charges after authorities say they had sex in several public places, including inside a Myrtle Beach Ferris wheel and at a community pool in Surfside Beach, local station WBTW reports.
The pair allegedly recorded the graphic sex acts and shared the videos on pornography sites.
Myrtle Beach police opened an indecent exposure investigation on Jan. 12 and discovered an online video allegedly showing the couple having sex inside a glass gondola of the Sky Wheel—a popular tourist attraction—in full view of the public, according to arrest warrants obtained by Myrtle Beach Sun News.
Authorities believe the act occurred on or around Jan. 2.
Investigators say it wasn’t the couple’s first alleged foray into explicit public displays of affection.
The pair are also accused of having sex in a community pool in the Surfside Beach area.
“The actions were recorded by both defendant and co-defendant and uploaded to the adult website … during Christmas break, on or about Dec. 23, 2020,” the report, also obtained by WBTW, stated.
During that incident, police said Lori Harmon also urinated on two vending machines and allegedly exposed herself while sitting on top of one of the machines.
In another December incident, Lori Harmon allegedly urinated in a public elevator, exposed herself while laying in the middle of North Waccamaw Drive and then went to a third location where she and Eric Harmon had sex. A video of that incident was also posted on an adult website, according to the arrest warrants.
Lori Harmon is now facing three counts of indecent exposure, two counts of participation in preparation of obscene material, and the malicious injury to personal property. She was released after posting a $18,000 bond, the local station reports.
Eric Harmon is facing two counts of indecent exposure and one charge of participation in preparation of obscene material. He was also released after posting a $14,000 bond.
