Korean swingers face porn charges for Web pictures

More than 150 suspected South Korean swingers have been questioned by police for possibly violating pornography laws by posting naked pictures of themselves on a Website for spouse swapping.

Police in the southern port city of Pusan on Tuesday arrested the 37-year-old operator of what they believe was one of the biggest Web sites in South Korea for swingers on suspicion of violating pornography laws.

"There is no crime at all in swapping," a police officer in Pusan said by telephone, but a provision in the information network law makes it illegal to send or distribute obscene material over telecoms systems and other types of networks.

Police said those brought in for questioning are believed to have posted pictures and video clips of themselves engaged in sex and will be arrested if they are confirmed to be the people in the postings.

The police have evidence of more than 400 meetings between members on the Website where they swapped partners or engaged in group sex, media reports said.

The Website called "Bubu Plus" had attracted more than 5,000 fee-paying members over the past two years simply from word of mouth.

Members were graded according to their degree of participation, and about 450 of them had paid 120,000 won for life-time memberships, the reports said.
