Melbourne : An Australian woman, facing charges of killing her husband, was made to live with his kinky demands, which included having sex with other men before him, a court was told Friday.
David and Eileen Creamer's marriage was "off the scale of normality for a middle-aged Australian couple", the Victorian Supreme Court heard.
David wanted his wife to have sex with strangers and posted photographs of her on the internet to lure men into wanting her, Eileen's lawyer Jane Dixon told the jury.
The photos included Eileen's legs and body, but not her face, brisbanetimes.com.au reported.
According to the defence lawyer, David had come to see his wife's value as diminished in some way because, in order to stay interested in her, she really had to be prepared to go along with some of the kinkier ways of having sex.
"For example, having sex with other men is what he wanted her to do for his titillation," Dixon said.
Eileen, 53, has pleaded not guilty to murdering her husband. She allegedly beat him and stabbed him once in the abdomen Feb 2, 2008.
Prosecutors say David was planning to leave his wife and return to South Africa to be with his first wife, the report said.
