A TRANS man who used a fake penis to have sex with women – and made one feel ashamed for not getting pregnant – has been jailed.
Carlos Delacruz, 35, hoodwinked both women for years, but was eventually shopped to the cops after they discovered what he had been doing.
The 35-year-old, who was born a woman in Madrid, admitted penetrating both women with an unknown object without their consent when he appeared at Edinburgh Sherrif Court last month.
Delacruz, from Banknock, near Falkirk, had refused to allow the women to see him naked and always performed in bed with the lights out.
Both victims, who cannot be identified due to legal reasons, were said to have suffered “extreme pain” during intercourse while both women also suffered from thrush afterwards.
He was jailed for three years and handed a five-year non-harassment order against both women. He was also put on the sex offenders register.
Defending solicitor Cameron Tait said Delacruz had developed “a male appearance” when he was aged eight before officially changing his name to Carlos when he turned 16.
The court heard Delacruz’s gender is now officially recognised as male and his gender is stated as male on his birth certificate, passport and Spanish identity card though he has not going through the full transition to male.
Mr Tait also told the court Delacruz considers the prosthetic penis he used during sex with the women “to be part of him”.
The lawyer added Delacruz is currently in a long term relationship with a woman and that she is fully aware and consenting to the use of the prosthetic penis he uses during sex.
Sheriff Stirling told Delacruz he had caused “physical and psychological harm” to both women by repeatedly sexually assaulting them with “a flesh and blood penis” over the length of their relationships.
The sheriff said the first victim was “made to feel like it was her fault” she was not falling pregnant to Delacruz and that “she now suffers flashbacks and panic attacks” due to the incidents.
