A New Zealand man has admitted tricking a woman into having sex with him by telling her he had been poisoned and would only survive if she slept with him.
The 24-year-old man admitted pleaded guilty to sexual connection induced by threat on Friday, saying he told the woman he had been forced to consume poison and would die within 48 hours if she did not perform certain sex acts on him.
He said he had to sweat the poison out but when the woman suggested he ‘go for a run’ he replied by telling her he had to sweat it out in a certain way, the New Zealand Herald reported.

As a means of corroborating the story, the woman began to receive random emails from an unknown person backing up his alleged story.
The emails stated the man had to have sex three times in the space of two days.
The email said this would expel the toxin from his body.
The requests began to turn into threats.
They said that her loved ones would be hurt if she did not comply and that photos of her half naked would be uploaded to the internet.
Mixing in with the threats were promises of money and a car if she did as she went along with the ruse.

The emails included stipulations to perform sex acts up to seven times a day or ‘until the man fell asleep’
The woman told the court she only complied because she believed the man’s live was in genuine danger.
It wasn’t until the emails started to contain a number of spelling and grammatical errors that the woman started to suspect the accused was the one writing the emails she told the court.
The emails and the threats continued and when the woman finally confided in a friend she was encouraged to go to the police and report the extortion.
The man will now face sentencing on May 25.
