A woman, identified as Naomi Hampson, says she’s terrified and feels “dirty” after discovering her boyfriend of two years used to sedate her and rape her in her sleep.
Naomi Hampson, 27, only found out she had regularly fallen victim to sick Robert Fryer when police raided the couple’s home. Her perverted boyfriend would sedate her and often paint her nails and dress her in jewellery before taking photographs of his revolting acts and saving them on his computer. Miss Hampson said: ‘I’m disgusted when I think about what he did. It makes me feel dirty and completely violated. Not remembering anything makes it worse. ‘It is so sinister all that time I was living with someone capable of that. He has no emotion. He is evil. And if the police hadn’t found out I could have still been living with him. It’s terrifying.’
Nottingham Crown Court heard in August that Fryer, a policeman’s son, has the rare condition somnophillia – dubbed ‘sleeping princess syndrome’. He admitted raping Miss Hampson three times between 2008 and 2011. He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of séxual activity without consent and was jailed for eight years.
The couple moved in together in Nottingham, having met on a night out in 2008, and Fryer was soon taking advantage of Miss Hampson , who struggled emotionally after her father John, 77, being was diagnosed with cancer. Miss Hampson was drinking more than usual but would wake up on the sofa or in bed without any knickers on and sometimes wearing nail polish or jewellery – but had no memory of falling sleep.
Fryer was arrested after he told a friend about his despicable attacks, with officers later showing the pictures to Miss Hampson and explaining that they believed he had sedated her. Miss Hampson, who has waived her right to anonymity to speak out, said Fryer had made out she was drinking too much. She described him as a psychopath and believes he got a thrill from the confused.
Miss Hampson told the Sunday People: ‘My entire life has been shattered into thousands of tiny pieces and my soul feel broken. I hate him for what he did to me.’
