Consider this the International House of Mistakes.
A landscaper smeared himself in maple syrup during a break while working at a Connecticut home to watch porn and then secretly recorded himself having sex with a female co-worker when she joined in on the sticky scene, according to a report.
Robert Somley, 52, was booked on a voyeurism charge after he refused to delete the video when his 48-year-old colleague learned they were being recorded during the syrup-covered sexcapade inside the Monroe home, the Connecticut Post reports.
The bizarre ordeal unfolded after Somley said he needed a break while the two were loading wood into a trailer. When he didn’t return after 20 minutes, the unidentified woman went to look for him.
The woman soon found Somley inside the home, where she told police he was standing naked while watching porn on a laptop. The woman then asked Somley what he was doing before he replied that he needed to take care of himself sexually before returning to the job, police said.
The woman shrugged him off and returned to loading wood onto the trailer. But she went back inside the home a short time later and saw Somley smearing syrup on his body — which she confessed was a “turn on” — and demanded to join the action, police said. The couple then added blueberry jelly to the condiment coitus.
But unbeknownst to the woman, Somley was taking video of the entire syrupy soirée, police said.
Once she realized Somley was recording the encounter, the woman demanded that he delete the footage of their freaky food sex, but he refused — prompting her to call police.
Police later seized Somley’s cellphone, which contained extensive video footage of the woman, investigators said.
Somley, who was released after posting $50,000 bond, could not be reached for comment Wednesday. A phone listing in his name at an address in Monroe had been disconnected. It was unclear if he had hired an attorney.
