HUNDREDS of people in Dover are signed up to a “dogging” website and looking to have sex with strangers in outdoor locations in the district.
Within a few hours of a reporter setting up a brief profile on the site, he was inundated with 25 messages from people looking to have “fun, whenever you want.”
The lack of a profile picture or any other personal information did not deter those looking for a secret meet-up, with one person asked if he was a “bad lad” and another asking if he had any friends who wanted to join in or watch.
A search on the website showed there were 3,792 members within 25 miles of Dover
Some choose to have profile pictures, many of which are of a pornographic nature, and their ages range between 18 and 55.
The link to the website was found on a YouTube video, which Father Richard Barns, of Littlestone, fears could be clicked on by unaware children.
He said: “I’m quite liberal-minded with what people do, but it’s the apparent easy way children could find (and follow) the link which concerns me most.”
“Say a child found the website and then linked it to his or her Facebook page, thinking it was a bit of fun – what if the person in the video was a parent of one of their friends?”
A YouTube spokesman said: “YouTube is a community site used by millions of people in very positive ways. Sadly as with any form of communication, there is a tiny minority of people who try to break the rules.”
