Teens’ sadistic sex tape

2014-06-10 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Two 16-year-old girls who are pupils at a Edgemead high school in Cape Town are awaiting disciplinary action after it came to light they are allegedly involved in making so-called crush videos.

Crush videos show people killing or torturing small animals while taking part in sexual activities.

The pupils will not be suspended as they are busy writing exams, said the spokesperson for the Western Cape Education Department Bronagh Casey.

The school’s governing body will decide this week what steps to take against the teenage girls, Casey said on Sunday.

The Stop Crush organisation states on its website freedom of expression has limits when violent criminal deeds are encouraged and lives endangered.

Stop Crush describes the videos as typically showing women committing sexual deeds while stomping on, or slowly piercing small animals with spiked heels. The animals include kittens and puppies.

Weekend Argus reported the crush video showing the girls contains images in which one of the girls steps on a fish while the second girl is involved in a sexual act.

The Stop Crush site states this sadistic underground movement can only degrade society’s morality.

Casey said the incidents in which pupils were involved in sexual activities that are shown on social media is isolated to the Western Cape.

He said parents and teachers are counselling the pupils at the school but stressed the alleged incident has no connection with the school.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel André Traut said he can only confirm the police had received a complaint.

“It was followed up and nothing was found on which to open a case. The police leave it in the hands of the Education Department,” Traut said.

“In the end it is the girls who are the targets,” Casey said.
