Gay couple was having sex – report

The ship at the Bayfront last week

As controversy continues to swirl over the arrest of two gay men in Dominica reports have surfaced that they were actually engaged in sex on the balcony of the ship that was docked in Roseau last week.

Gay website Queerty.com. published what it called an ‘exclusive firsthand account’ of the incident when Dennis Mayer and John Hart of Palm Springs, were arrested on  buggery charges.

According to the website a fellow cruise passenger gave the following account of the incident:

“My boyfriend and I, and a busload of other guys, did see what was happening on the balcony of the Celebrity Summit as we waited for our excursion to depart.

At first, I wasn’t paying attention, until I noticed a few Dominican females near the security gate of the pier where the ship docked, waving their arms and hands towards the ship, and talking loudly about something on the ship. The others on board the bus also looked, and we noticed one, then two guys on the balcony walking around naked. My first thought was, ‘If we can see them, can they see us?’

The ruckus at the dock became more excited when it appeared, at first to me, that they were engaging in oral sex. The two guys in front of me then said, ‘No, they are f*****ng!’ As I leaned forward in my seat, I noticed that they were f****ng, and in a standing position. It was very, very obvious that they were engaged in f****ng. We were not that far away from the ship, maybe one half to three quarters the length of a football field. Again, did they know we could see them?”

The alleged eyewitness account continues:

“When the girls pointed to the balcony for the police officer to see, he then, himself, noticed the guys f*****ng. The police officer started to walk towards the ship, as other police officers also started to observe the action on the balcony. The balcony was just above Deck 5, where the lifeboats are stored, and only two or three staterooms from the elevator banks, on the port side of the Celebrity Summit facing the town.

As the police officer walked, then stopped, then walked again toward the ship, the two guys on the balcony were still f*****ng. By this time, we could see many people on the pier and onshore taking photos of the action taking place on the balcony.

As the police officer was walking towards the ship, many of us were thinking that these two guys would soon be going home. It’s the notion of f*****ng in plain view of those on the ground that was the shocking thing. It doesn’t have to be a gay thing since straight couples shouldn’t be doing that as well.”

The charge of buggery was eventually dropped and the men were charged with indecent exposure and fined EC$2,400.00 each.

They left the island last week Thursday.

    Indecent exposure is indecent exposure. Performing sex in public is also part of indecent exposure. It is too bad that the other charge was dropped for it is a serious one. This article should be sent to the international Media which should clarify the situation.
    Those men were not ashamed of their lewd acts. Instead they lambasted Dominica saying that they were treated horribly. This is all they could say but nothing was mentioned about their sex acts. They projected that they have no personal respect for themselves and for others.

    This is my opinion on the matter. I do believe that the guys were being defiant. I do beleive that they knew Dominica’s stand on homosexuality as it relate to the law of the land. I do believe that they were well informed and all these stories that the white man was telling on the america news is a lie. The tow men meant to openly defy the countries law. Its like all you doh want gay well look it in your face. There was no reason for them to do their business openly like that unless they wanted to prove a point. And the lawyer that represented them talking foolishness about when the saw the mountains etc etc. i never look at a mountain in my life yet and it propelled me to sex outside like a dog.

    Looking a a mountain in its tranquility would propel someone to read a book, admire nature etc not have sex in the open.

    The best part about all this is that someone of like nature with these two guys had the decency to tell the truth

    Once again I am glad the people of Dominica will recognize the lies you are constantly told by American media. I am glad that their fellow gay buddies were able to tell it as it is. Allah makes the truth come into the light after much darkness by Satan and his henchmen.

    This is what they do to Muslims from time memorial. They call us terrorists, American media edits their tapes before giving the news. The American media has lied in its accusations that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. On the FBI website Osama was not wanted in connection with this act.

    Don’t worry, even if many Dominicans fail to look at Islam as a way of life and alternative, many Americans and Europeans are embracing Islam at an alarming rate. The UK, America, South Africa and many places in the world have embraced Islamic banking models, banking without interest.

    Lastly, oh people of Dominica we have been destroyed and lied to about the message of Jesus Christ peace be upon him. Will you not then learn wisdom?

    What you do in the privacy of your bedroom and who you do it with is your problem but when you do it in public it becomes everyones business. It was not only wrough it was agaist the law I am very proud of dominica for punishing these individual just though should have gotten a heavyer fine.you can not just come from where you want and do as you please in peoples contry there are laws and regulations.

    The truth is indecent exposure is wrong no matter who does it. These guys did not help the gay course, and decent gay people by their behaviour.
    The problem is these guys had an agenda, they got the attention they wanted. Now I hope all the Television stations broadcast the truth.

    DNO can you leave these gay people alone and do a follow up on the kidnap victims who have not been found? That is much more relevant to us than two gay Americans who had sex on a boat.

    If all these witnesses where watching and taking photos. Then I want to know, why not a single photo made its way into the court, to have the charge of buggery stand. One of these witness could have told the court what they saw. First hand witness goes a long way, when charging people with a crime. Hell lets start even smaller then that, in this day and age of social networking. Why are these photos not all over the net. Would help bring the truth out don’t you think.

    • Court Officer
      March 28, 2012

      Because to substantiate such evidence takes time and we really didn’t want these guys here causing international outcry while they play the gay persecution card. You can’t just bring a photo to court it has to be analyzed and deemed authentic as opposed to being a picture edited in photoshop, gimp or another image editing program. At the end of they day they’re out at least 2 gran US (1800 in fines plus whatever they paid their lawyer). Now let’s move on because this isn’t news anymore since we already knew they were having intercourse and they’re gone.

      March 28, 2012

      Exactly my sentiments. I do not believe non of what my fellow Dominicans are saying unless I have seen the proof. I believe that our ppl are naive and needs a dose of reality. Sin is sin and I do not care what anyone say. I sure have not seen anywhere in the Bible that says homosexuality is a greater sin than any other. Just saying, grow up Dominicans. Get a life and more productive things to do than to mind happy ppl business. Who are you to judge?? That’s whey we will remain poor and underdeveloped. We should be happy that cruise are even willing to dock in our shores to bring in some money to our ppl. Our ppl like to make an issue for irrelevant things too much

    I appreciate the report to provide more evidence….but I hate to say it it still has me wondering a few things.

  15. My2Sense
    March 28, 2012

    I think that DNO should start a poll asking about homophobia in Dominica. It is my opinion that many of us hide behind the fact that the two men in question committed a crime.

    If there had been no such incident, just 2,000 gay men hugging, kissing and holding hands in our streets, I doubt that we would have behaved “as normal”. Many of us would have been appalled as if they were having sex in public.

    So don’t pretend that “gays are OK” in Dominica. I am straight and proud but I can only imagine the behind-the-scenes reaction of local gay men… especially after such a difficult calypso season! Lol. There won’t be many coming out parties soon!

    I watching still. Dominicans were quick to condemn their own law officers as if Dominica police so backward. Wait for it!!! Eyewitnesses have been saying the same thing on several blogs and they are gay. These two sick individuals deliberately did this and even after all the attention they got, they sought to tarnish the image of Dominica, but what is even more shocking is the way certain Dominicans in Atlanta and New York slammed Dominica and the police in defense of this dispicable act. I watching still!!!

    DNO Admin I could not help myself from reading this report with such embarrassment and dis believe as to think that your news online is accessible to the whole world and may I add children as well as adults and to have you repeated the F word six (6) times is very appalling as that word could have been substituted with another word and still give the true picture of the witness. I just think that a bit of consideration could have been used.

      What “utter rubbish” in britain children hear the “F” word everywhere they go, so what is your problem! British children have no respect and in america they hear the word in the music they hear every day. and before you get on your high horse, I too am a British Citizen.

      I guess you must be a shut-in who never leaves the house, eh? Walk down any street anywhere in the Caribbean and you’ll hear kids from age four and up using the “F word” in nearly every sentence they utter. Apparently they have no idea how abysmally ignorant and immature this makes them sound. Neither do the so-called adults who use it nearly as frequently.

    Thank you cruise passenger for giving us a clear account on what actually happened this day..
    I believe that these guys are just embarrassed that they were arrested.. And what I don’t really understand is that one of the guys is an X police officer.. Someone you would think would not break the law..These guys know what they were doing was WRONG..Had it been a man a woman, the couple would have still gotten arrested..Engaging in sexual activity in PUBLIC is just simply wrong or illegal!!!
    They impression that they gave the media is that they were arrested for being gay, when they know for a fact that they were engaged in sexual acts..They should be ashamed of themselves..Don’t think u could come to our beautiful nature isle and think that u could do as u please..We have rules and laws just like the US. We are a warm and friendly people .. We have nothing against gays..
    I hope that will be a lesson learned for these two guys and also a lesson learned for everyone..
    OBEY THE LAWS OF A COUNTRY!!

      Sex in public is against the law and immoral … have you been to Carnival? The only difference between “wukking up” and real six is a bit of cloth! Does that little piece of cloth make the sexual action legal? Come on people, check yourselves before you condem anyone else.

    I appreciate DNO’s effort to bring the truth across to all the people who still think that there was some exaggeration about these two guys and what they did. As a Dominican I can’t stand seeing my country being treated unfairly for two “IDIOTS” and their lack of discretion. PLEASE BE FAIR…..and stop BASHING my country for standing for our rights.

    I cant be bothered with gay people and their business, but this unfair twisting of the truth made me borderline dislike gay people for a while.

    THIS NEWS IS ON MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES HEAD LINE FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS INCLUDING DNO . I AM VERY KINE TO READ THE COMMENTS.BEFORE I CONTINUE ,I MUST LET SOME OF YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE GAY FRIENDS; I CANNOT TELL ANY ADULT HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIFE BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT ANY ONE TO TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD DO OR NOT. ALSO WE MUST PUT IN OUR MINDS THAT WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY WITH RULES THAT WE MUST A BID TO EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NOT PLEASED WITH THESE RULES.
    MY MAIN POINT CONCERNING THAT GAY INCIDENT IS TO MANY PEOPLE ARE TALKING THROUGH THEIR ARSES AND SAY THAT THE DOMINICAN GOV’T DISCRIMINALIZES HOMOSEXUALITY….HOMOSEXUALITY SHOULD BE PRACTISED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS .YET I DO NOT CONDONE IT.HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEX IN THE PUBLIC IN FRONT OR YOUR KIDS, PEOPLE’S KIDS,STRANGERS AND YOUR OWN BLOOD FAMILY? NON OF YOU OR ELSE YOU ARE WORSE THAN A PIG….RESPECT EACH OTHER WHILE YOU LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE.GAY MEN PRACTICE YOUR SEXUAL ACTIVITIES IN YOUR COUNTRY NOT IN DOMINICA MY HOME LAND…

    i am glad that the fully story is now told, these men were lying about the whole incident.Dominica was being portrayed in a very bad light.we are a christian community but we dont discriminate,that is why the ship was allowed to dock here in the first place ppl.it is simple,they were arrested because of their behaviour and actions, not because of their sexual preference.if this were the case then every gay person on the ship would have been arrested …..

        March 28, 2012

        @Jamin… you are right, but they having sex (or not) really wasn’t an issue for me, especially since they weren’t even charged for that crime. Now that another tourist has confirmed that they were fully engaged in buggery I do not feel any better about the situation.

        What always concerned me was the perception we gave the world by (1) having the buggery law on our books in the first place and (2) what some have described as “clamoring” and alleged mobbing of the cruise ship berth and the court house.

        Add in name-calling and the alleged refusal of a few bus drivers to go on tours and we’re depicted as a homophobic country. Is that the image we want out there?

        @My2Sense

        Very well put! I have no issue with the two men being arrested for indecent behavior in public, same as if it had been a hetero couple. But the blatant gay bashing, antediluvian buggery laws, and ridiculous moralizing about gays in general appalled me. It makes Dominica appear incredibly backward and narrow-minded.

        Those two clowns deserved to be arrested and fined. They were either stupid beyond belief or deliberately trying to offend by their actions and have no complaint coming about being punished for their actions – but not for being gay. They didn’t choose to be gay, but the did choose to commit an offense. Punish the act. Don’t punish the whole gay population by making sexual orientation a crime in itself.

    • Reader
      March 28, 2012

      Now that I have finally stopped ROTFLMAO … did you really say that we do not discriminate? Lol … If Dominicans at large could find a way to put every single one of these guys in jail they would. It just turned out that these two broke the laws so they were punished – rightly so! But to say we do not discriminate is just laughable!!

      • Cyrique
        March 29, 2012

        The behaviour of these two men were abhorrent. It’s people like them who give gay people a bad name. These interactions and expression of passion should be a private matter and not a public display whether by a gay or heterosexual couple. I believe that anyone who was horrified by that experience was justified. In my view, if they did engage in public sex, they should be arrested and charged!! It should be a lesson for others that we are not a soft touch!!! God bless Dominica!!!!

    We do not need any more evidence to conclude that these guys who behaved worse than animals, left Califonia and the US with an agenda.

    As I said before, we should have charged them $5,000 US each for: 1. Exposing their private to the public on foreign soil 2. For having sex of any kind openly 3. for behaving worse than animals. I have never seen two male animals having sex and two see two foreigners do it publicly, we should have dealt with them hasher than we deed. They would not have done any of these things openly in the US.

    I just saw that a young Dominican man was charged $500 for the possession of ganja seeds. I mean this one is unbelieveable! Seeds are natural buggery in not natural and is animalish and really seeds of perversion.

    Now what? I hope all the people who had bad things to say about our country can shut their mouth. Not because we are a third world country this means that people should violate our laws..

    Eh beh look sex that was going on on that balcony. The raucous on the street didn’t even disturb the fools. Let them continue acting like is something Dominicans have against gay. The whole ship wasn’t fined. People need to remove their biased glasses. I am happy for this eye witness account. Now we are more informed and we can move on from a more knowledged point of view. Just hope that next time the court will accept the eye witnesses accounts and put charge where charge has to go. These rouges and vagabonds should have been charged for f****** in public. They know better.

      That’s your perogative. I don’t think that someone’s sexual preference is our business. What is disturbing and should/must not be condoned is to perform such acts in public which is against the laws of the land.

    Can I please come on here and not have to read about this thing. It’s in the past, we have dealt with it not in the best way but in the way the law thought was best. We have walked in the spotlight and instead of leaving a spark we left a lasting shadow over our land but still we keep resurfacing this event. LEAVE IT ALONE! LET IT GO…..recovery period now please, focus on tourism and how it can possible bring our heads above water…bless

    Now that’s what I’m talking about.

    This article should be “blowing up” on Facebook and other international media as the other not-so-Dominica-friendly articles did over the weekend.

    This alleged eye witness account is coming from a gay man and expresses the type of shock that should be expected of any person, gay or straight.

      Very true.
      The Discover Dominica Authority or whichever is responsible should ensure that the media like CBS 2 & Hoffington post receive a copy of this article and publish it too.
      We have received such negative publicity for protecting our laws that we need to clear our name once and for all

    I am very disappointed that they dropped the charges of buggery. It is illegal in Dominica and these men were blatantly disrespecting the Laws of our country. It is time we put our feet down about our laws. I also can’t believe that they were fined this little bit of money. I think that the fine should have been much more. Maybe we need to revisit the amount fines cost. Still, well done to the officers who apprehended them. Nasty behavior! It sure gives a blow to the gay rights movement. Homosexual acts such as these are practiced by persons determined to go against God’s moral standards.

      Well there it is… Be it gay or straight, nobody wants to see people have sex in public… that’s what porn is for…
      But, you are wrong… there are animals that do have relations with the same sex… watch animal planet… search and learn for yourselves… before you make an incorrect phrase like that.

    Well well, if that is the case then hmmmm. And yes people need to understand that this is not about not liking gays. Its wrong…whether it was gay couple or not. And its good to have passengers like this tell the world what actually happened cause the said men themselves are telling their own stories and trying to put a bad light on us. I saw on the USA news that they said they were paraded around town. SMH!!

    Well as they say, you heard it from the horses mouth. This comment came from guy passengers who were present. Now to all those Dominican, who cannot stop but criticize their own country and fellowmen as well as those foreigners who bash our beautiful Country,STOP your WRONGFUL accusations admit that you like those men were wrong and repent.
