A man who posed as a woman online to lure victims to his Melbourne apartment to fulfill his sexual fantasies has been imprisoned.

Peter Valsamakis, 42, posted ads on the Locanto classified site, pretending to be & # 39; Michelle & # 39; and asking the men to arrive at their apartment in South Yarra, to put on their blindfolds and get undressed before taking part in sexual acts.

On Tuesday, the county court was informed that when clients contacted Valsamakis, he would respond with images of women and female genitalia.

& # 39; Michelle & # 39; Then he entered the room and began to practice oral sex with him. When he looked through the blindfold, he saw a muscular man with quick roses.

The victim said: You're not Michelle. You're supposed to be a girl.

They told him that Michelle had sent him to a male escort.

Another victim, a 26-year-old man, responded to Valsamakis's ad in search of a "toy boy."

When he arrived at Valsamakis's apartment, he suspected and did not take off his clothes as planned.

Through his bandage, he saw that Valsamakis was a man and hit him in the face and took his phone.

A victim of 20 years responded to an ad asking a man to "fulfill my fantasy".

He went to the apartment, undressed and covered his eyes, with Valsamakis entering and performing a sexual act.

Upon leaving the apartment, he met another man who was on his way to meet with Michelle, and the two plotted a plot to steal Valsamakis television.

Sentenced on Tuesday, Judge Patricia Riddell said Valsamakis, who became a male escort at age 18, described the time of his offense as a "dark period" in his life.

He self-medicated his mental health problems by using drugs like ice.

Valsamakis had also told a psychologist that he had a "subconscious desire to be arrested" for the behavior to end.

He has stated that he has no intention of re-entering the sex industry and Judge Riddell found that his risk of recidivism is low.

He said he previously believed that his actions were morally wrong, but not illegal, but that vision had changed since then.

Valsamakis pleaded guilty to charges including indecent assault, acquisition of sexual penetration through fraud and work as a sex worker without a license. He was imprisoned for 18 months, of which he has already served 503 days. This means that it will be free by the end of October (stock image)
