ASEAN scholar studying law at NUS Alvin Tan Jye Yee and his sex partner Vivian Lee posted a nine-minute video online to give an “update” and answer queries they have been receiving.
Read report: ASEAN scholar and partner take sex blog offline
The couple reiterated that they did not want to take their blog offline but they had done so because of pressure from their families.
“Yes, we will continue doing what we love doing, but it’s more of a question of timing. We probably won’t continue again so soon from now. Perhaps, we will, but we don’t publish them so quickly or we will look for a more subtle way to distribute our materials in the future," said Tan.
He added that his family members have been “supportive” of the blog from a "moral slant".
“They are more concerned about my well-being from a legal perspective. They don’t want me to get into any legal trouble. They don’t want me to cockily mouth-off to NUS... and they basically wanted me to lay low for a while.”
The National University of Singapore (NUS) has "served a notice of Board of Discipline inquiry" to the law undergraduate. A spokesperson from the university said in a statement sent late Tuesday night that the board "will look into the matter and take appropriate disciplinary actions".
Many of the images and videos the couple had shared on their blog were obscene and distasteful. Their questionable content coupled with the fact that Tan is an ASEAN scholar at NUS garnered much interest from the media and others online.
Tan said they receive many requests for sex from people online and that Lee has had thousands of “friend requests”.
“Both Vivian and I have very direct messages asking us to have sex with them, get naughty with them…and they even leave their contact numbers,” said Tan while Lee laughed.
Responding to yet another query, Tan said he didn’t think the couple were in any legal trouble.
“I don’t think we’re in legal trouble because I believe the police and authorities have better things to do with their time.”
The couple concluded their own video press conference by saying that they will not apologise for what they have done.
“If you don’t like us, sc*** you,” said Tan.
The Malaysian couple, dressed in T-shirts, seems to have recorded the video at one of their homes. There was a curtain blocking most of the background.
