Woman Pretends to Be a Man for Two Years to Dupe Girlfriend

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

A female victim was duped into having sex with a woman who posed as a man during what she thought was a two-year hetero3exual relationship, a court heard.

The victim, who can’t be named for legal reasons, claimed she had “3exual interc0urse” twice with the ‘man’ and had even planned to marry ‘him’ before discovering his true gender.

Blade Silvano, 40, is on trial accused of a “sophisticated” scam by tricking the woman into believing she was male.

Prosecutors said the pair met online in late 2016 when Silvano had posted her status on Plenty of Fish as a “man looking for a woman” so matched with the victim who was searching the opposite.

They first met in person in December of that year and kissed before going on to have “interc0urse” on two separate occasions, the jury was told.

But Michael Hillman, for the prosecution, said Silvano continued to hide her true identity by using an “unknown item” during 3ex and always kept her T-shirt and boxers on.

The shocked victim only discovered her lover’s true gender through Facebook nearly two years later after they had postponed a planned wedding due to the defendant’s supposed illness, the trial heard.

Silvano, of Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire, is on trial at Cambridge Crown Court and denies two counts of assault by penetration.

Giving evidence on Tuesday, the complainant said the defendant had used the name Blade Mendez and told police she had never consented to having a 3exual relationship with a woman.

During cross-examination, the alleged victim denied the whole relationship had all been part of a “roleplay” and “fantasy,” between them.

She also referred to Silvano throughout her testimony as a “he” and added: “I’ve only known Blade as a man.”

She denied claims put to her by defence barrister Debra White that she had never met the defendant “in the flesh” and told the court their relationship had felt “real”.

The court heard they had first met on Plenty of Fish in 2016 and the alleged victim denied she had identified herself as bi3exual on her profile or that she had any 3exual interest in women at the time.

She also denied she had a “thing for unforms” but said: “Blade had sent me a picture via WhatsApp of himself in an army uniform.”

Ms White asked her: “Did you tell her your 3exual fantasy was to have 3ex with a woman?” and she responded with “no.”

Ms White argued the name Mendez was also “part of a fantasy that was created by the two of you” and was chosen because it was the “surname of a football player.”

She said: “It wasn’t a real relationship. It was an opportunity to explore another part of her character. The communication was roleplay fantasy?”

The alleged victim responded: “It felt very real when emotions got involved, I was not acting on my behalf.”

She said the majority of their communication was via WhatsApp messages but they had also exchanged video calls.

She said when they were discussing 3exual activity there were also “indications of roleplay, doctors and nurses, that kind of thing”.

But she said she believed Silvano when she told her she was a vet within the British Army and for her that was not a part of her fantasy.

The court heard on one occasion they had been due to go to an “officer’s dinner” together but Silvano pulled out after telling her she had been “injured by a cow.”

Ms White said: “That was all part of the fantasy. She may have said to you she felt like she had been trampled by a cow.”

The alleged victim said: “He did say he been injured by a cow and then sent me a picture of his leg elevated after going to hospital.”

The trial also heard details of their wedding preparations, which the defence again argued was all part of their roleplay.

Ms White added: “During your relationship, you told police there was talk of marriage.

“That was again all part and parcel of the fantasy between the two of you. It wasn’t real, was it? The discussion was a fantasy, an escapism?

“You were making arrangements to marry someone that you say you had only seen on a handful of occasions?”

The alleged victim responded: “It was Blade that asked me to marry him. Based on him asking me we made arrangements.”

The trial heard she had even gone to try on a wedding dress and sent a photo of it to Silvano.

Ms White added: “Isn’t it tradition that the person you are going to marry – they don’t see the dress until the morning of the wedding?”

“The reason you sent that photo was there was never going to be a wedding. The reason was all part and parcel of this roleplay between you and Ms Silvano.

“Did you begin to believe this roleplay was real?”

The witness responded: “It was not a roleplay”

Ms White added: “Because you have never met in the flesh and she has never been to your house. All communications were via a mobile device.

“Had you met in the flesh, you would have known that Blade Silvano was a woman.”

The alleged victim responded: “That is incorrect. I’ve only known Blade as a man.”

The court heard she only discovered Silvano’s true identity in September 2018 when her contacts synced on a new Facebook account and came up with a different surname for the defendant.

The trial continues.
