Overweight girl sues man who refused to have sex with her
This is a classic case of expectations verusus reality - A 15-year-old Taiwanese girl sued a man for sexual assault, out of anger that the man refused to have sex with her due to her weight.
In the events that led to this online dating disaster, the girl, who is 155 cm tall and weighs 80 kg, developed a lascivous relationship with an 18-year-old male college student.
The 'couple' would have online sex each time they chatted online, but things went downhill the moment they decided to do it for real.
Poor lover boy was immediately turned off when he saw what his cyber girlfriend was like in real life, and almost ditched her on the spot. So you'll have to give him some points for wanting to try anyway.
Once at the man's house, he was unable to get it on, even after he covered the girl's face with a pillow.
If you're not laughing yet, the girl was so insulted by the whole incident she decided to punish him - by calling the cops on him and accusing him of sexual assualt.
