It looks like dogs really are man’s best friend after a prostitute was alalegedly forced to call police to deal with a client whose canine pal began taking part in a sex act.
The man – a 45-year-old mechanic – had initially offered the woman €20 (£15) just to sit and watch him masturbate – an offer which the woman turned down, reports The Local.
That wasn’t enough to put him off though, and he returned two days later hoping to convince the woman with an offer of a threesome – with his pet dog.
What happened next isn’t exactly clear, but according to the prostitute, the dog – an English setter – “had begun to assist his master in the satisfaction of his passions,” wrote Nice Matin.
It seems like the woman wasn’t too happy with this development and so called police to intervene before lodging an official complaint against him for exhibitionism.
Police immediately took him into custody – without the dog – but he has now been released and will have to face court in June on charges of ‘Repeated exhibitionism in a state of drunkenness’.
The unnamed man admitted visiting the prostitute and making the first request, but denies returning with his dog.
However, he had reportedly been charged with similar offences two years earlier although both Cannes police and the man have declined to comment further on the incident.
The dog was also unavailable for comment.
