Isn’t it ironic? The son of a Masters and Johnson sex researcher was arrested for showing his, well, Johnson.
The son of legendary Masters and Johnson sex researcher William Masters has been caught showing undercover cops his own johnson, and could be facing jail time.
New York freelance TV producer William H. Masters III was busted near his family’s Michigan vacation cottage Saturday after allegedly exposing himself to two undercover officers posing as kayakers as part of a local sting operation.
Masters’ family owns a home in super-exclusive Pointe aux Barques. “It’s a very rich, wealthy gated community,” explained a local source, “with cottages built by families like [tire magnate] Harvey Firestone.”
The incident occurred nearby on the Pinnebog River when, according to the Huron County sheriff’s office, “a 60-year-old New York City-area man yelled for [the] attention” of two women kayaking by. He was on the shore and “was completely undressed and making obscene gestures.” But the boaters were “part of a combined law-enforcement-agency sting operation, working out of a two-person kayak on the river.”
The women, a deputy sheriff and her volunteer assistant, then “beached their kayak to pursue the suspect” and “called for backup from [a] Michigan conservation officer . . . who was on foot in that area.”
Masters, who lives in Manhattan and Southampton, was released on $5,000 bond and arraigned yesterday on one charge of aggravated indecent exposure, which could carry up to two years in jail.
“This sting operation was prompted by many incidents over the years such as yesterday’s,” said a release from Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson.
Masters’ father was half of the Masters and Johnson team that wrote the groundbreaking best-sellers “Human Sexual Response” and “Human Sexual Inadequacy.” Showtime is making a series about the duo, “Masters of Sex,” starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
Masters is married to television producer Victoria Baker. A rep for Masters said he had no comment.
SMH… what a dirty dog! But it sounds like flashing is very common in the area if they had a sting operation set up. Yuck.
