Naked Ambition?

Man banned from standing naked next to his window

Mark Benfold, 34, is said to have 'unnerved' a schoolgirl and a number other women who passed by the full-length glass window in his flat

The Ashford, Kent, resident was cautioned by police after a complaint was made, but he ignored it and was subsequently arrested on July 13 last year.

Once in custody, Mr Benfold conceded that witnesses may have felt threatened by his behaviour, but said his actions were part of a sexual fantasy he had about starting affairs with women who 'liked what they saw'.

Sentencing Mr Benfold to a 36-month community supervision order and instructing him to undergo a sex offender's treatment programme, Judge James O'Mahony reportedly said: 'Your unusual sexual gratification upset other people.'

In February, 38-year-old David Gray pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent exposure after admitting he got a 'buzz' by jumping out of cars completely naked and flashing at oncoming traffic on the A9 near Dunblane.

A number of lorry drivers were said to have been 'alarmed' by Mr Gray exposing himself, and he was placed on probation for three years.
