Kuala Lumpur, October 20: Sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee, who have become outrageously famous in a week, have started facing the consequences of the scandalous blog.
Lee may be kicked out of her family home after “Sumptuous Erotica”, the blog she shared with Tan made the headlines in several newspapers here and in Singapore.
“My mother gave me an ultimatum marry him or move out within a month,” Star Online quotes her as saying.
The 23-year-old added that she was “a little scared” about the prospect.
She had just graduated with a marketing degree from Multimedia University and is living in Johor Baru with her mother and elder brother.
Tan has been spending leave of absence from the National University of Singapore (NUS) by being with his parents at his rented apartment in Kuala Lumpur. This leave is unrelated to the sex blog.
Lee said with the slim probability of marrying Tan, as both considered themselves young and not committed to each other monogamously, she might just end up moving in with him.
“I think she can depend on me. I think I can provide financially,” Tan said.
Both said that Lee’s distraught and widowed mother had been trying to contact Tan to rebuke him but he did not answer her calls.
“My mother also scolded me and pleaded with me to not give any more press interviews,” Lee said.
“But I guess I’m going against that, too,” she said.
As for Tan, an Asean scholar reading law, he faces possible expulsion from NUS besides having his expensive scholarship revoked after his and Lee’s nude pictures and sex videos hogged the headlines in the republic.
But he said he did not see it as a “big thing” if the university sacked him and instead, appears to have set his sights on gaining more infamy.
Both Tan and Lee want to break into show business and do not rule out the possibility of becoming actors.
They also revealed that sharing the intimate photos and videos on the Internet were “a mutual idea”. It was Lee who coaxed Tan into capturing the nude clips of each other.
“We started taking the nude shots the second time we met up,” Tan said.
“We were fooling around in a hotel in Penang while on holiday and she was totally naked.
“She asked me if I wanted to take her picture and I was game for it,” he said.
“Most are cowards. OK, I take that back. They are unadventurous,” he said, adding that calling oneself “adventurous” was self-serving.
“Doing things like bungee-jumping or skydiving is pretty standard stuff. I want to hang out with people who have done things that are unprecedented,” he added. (ANI)
