Police have arrested the operator of a pornographic website with some 10,000 members who shared obscene pictures of their wives or girlfriends. Police also booked 53 members of the website who they say uploaded obscene pictures.

Police said the 39-year old webmaster opened a website in September 2005 and facilitated the sharing of video clips and pictures depicting nudity and sexual intercourse by 9,887 members. He is accused of collecting W27,000 (US$1=W938) for a two-month membership from 857 paying members, netting him W85 million. Police said the images included "abnormal" practices such as partner swapping and threesomes.

A police spokesman said the webmaster and nine other members engaged in these practices "between once and seven times" facilitated by the website.

Police said three couples engaged in partner-swapping and watching each other have sex.

The vast majority of the 53 booked members were office workers, entrepreneurs and college students and aged between 30 and 40. Four were women, two housewives and a self-employed woman in their 30s, and one office worker in her 20s.

Members reportedly told police that they joined the website out of curiosity and because their sex lives were "boring."

Police found that the webmaster was already given a suspended sentence for operating the same website in March 2005 but reopened the site. He allegedly joined in the partner swapping on three occasions pretending he was a member. The Cyber Crime Investigation Division of the Seoul Metropolitan Police asked the Korea Information Security Commission to shut down the site.

The police spokesman said there was no legal basis for punishing unconventional sexual activities, "but if people pay for partner swapping it qualifies as commercial sex," which is illegal. "Posting nude pictures of girlfriends without their consent is also a crime," he added.
