Woman who posed as man to have sex with friend jailed for 8 years


A woman who duped her female friend into having sex by pretending to be a man for two years has been jailed for eight years.

Gayle Newland, 25, of Willaston, Cheshire, disguised her appearance and voice as she persuaded the other woman to put on a blindfold when they met up.

The pair had sex about 10 times until the complainant finally ripped off her mask and in disbelief saw Newland wearing a prosthetic penis.

Sentencing Newland, Judge Roger Dutton labelled her "an intelligent, obsessional, highly manipulative, deceitful, scheming and thoroughly determined young woman".
