Travers 'Candyman' Beynon On His 'Strict Rules' When It Comes To Girlfriends
Some people would give a left (or right) arm to live in a mansion full of beautiful women with the world's craziest parties at their fingertips. But for Travers Beynon, this is the 'norm', in fact he makes it sound like it's absolutely nothing.
That's not to say he doesn't appreciate his lifestyle but surely the flamboyant Australian tycoon has his work cut out. He juggles his devoted wife with numerous girlfriends. In fact, he doesn't juggle them at all - he sleeps with them all together, every night and says that's the 'easy part'. We'd never have guessed.
Travers, better known as 'Candyman', holds extravagant parties at his 15-bedroom, 19-bathroom mansion - dubbed the Candy Shop Mansion (rather fitting).
At weekends you can probably find him in between an array of women, but by night he will be upstairs in his bedroom which, as he described to us, looks exactly like a nightclub.
This is how he outlined one 'experience' which happens on the regs: "We had a party at the mansion and then we would move up to the bedroom, which has a stripper pole, mirrored ceilings, and all the lights and smoke machines, LEDs and all that.
"She [his wife, Taesha] remembers one point where it just turned sexual and about 10 to 12 girls all jumped on me. And my wife told me that she couldn't actually see me under the pile of girls, she said it was almost like I was being eaten alive.
"And I can tell you, there was a moment when that happened when I was able to see the ceiling, and I could see myself and I said to myself, 'Ok, I think I can go now.' I thought, 'If my time's up now I can happily go.'
"And it happened quite a few times after that so I feel pretty lucky. I've been waiting for the white light many times but it hasn't come yet."
But a lifestyle that involves being intimate with so many ladies must come with a fair few rules, you'd imagine. Sure enough, Travers says that his experience in 'people management' (within the business sector) has helped him in his conquest to polygamy.
He told LADbible: "If you're in as a girlfriend you're part of the family. We have a compulsory family dinner on Sunday nights with everyone and we all sit down we fill two large tables and I take everyone's mobile phones and put them in another room.
"We get takeaway because it's our one night takeaway we all sit there - the young kids, the older kids, the girlfriends, the wife.
"They are forced to talk [about] the old days and that's a pretty special night for everyone. Once we've finished our takeaway we go into the cinema that I have in the mansion and all watch a movie together.
"There's no more fights than normal - in fact, I think that the beauty the girls have is that they've got a boyfriend or husband like me but also their best mates living with them.
"They enjoy that too, I think. They fight, of course, but most of the time they get on and enjoy each other's company."
So how do you keep everyone happy in this scenario? One of his solutions is that everyone shares the same bedroom - which sounds like a squeeze and probably would be if you lived in a three bedroom semi-detached with just the one double bed. But as you might expect by this stage, that's not how he rolls.
He explained: "The bedroom has three large king-sized beds, I actually have another bedroom in the house which is just for me so if it ever gets too much I escape to that.
"Managing girls who are romantically involved, emotionally involved, can be challenging but the more you do it the better you get at it."
And you thought you had enough problems keeping one partner happy.
We wonder, though has he ever found himself in a sticky situation? (No, not that kind.)
He told us: "Every scenario you could think of has happened. It's normal for me now but I'm so strict. I could have 10 or 20 girls here all the time but I have such strict rules so that it does work long term.
"There have been girls who have flown from the US and the UK even and have lasted one hour - their attitude wasn't right so off they went."
Anyone else starting to pick up Judge's house vibes?
He continued: "There have been girls who have done the wrong thing, they've been rude or they want more - just me. Every scenario you could think about I've had to deal with.
"I never struggle [to deal with tricky situations], I'm always clear and never unclear about the rules. My wife is my wife. And the rewards are there if you do the right thing."
Speaking of his wife, Taesha Beynon - how does she fit into all of this? He met her when she was 18 and working at one of his parties as a hostess.
He explained: "I disclosed exactly what I was all about, how it's going to evolve and the Candy Shop Mansion. She had disclosed to me that she kissed a lot of girls and there were often times when she would see a pretty girl in the street and she would text me about the girl."
Ah, we see where this is going.
"She was certainly into girls so that was a big help," he continued. "There was a lot of fun to have and I can be quite creative in bed, so I suppose that helps.
"I think at the end of the day, she was secure in the fact that she was the wife, and there's more to that than just a pretty girl coming along. She enjoys the parties and the other girls.
"We all sleep in the same bed and we are sexually all together. It's all together - that's one way of keeping it under control."
If you didn't already know, Candyman opened applications to enter his Candy Shop Mansion (sounds like an over-populated Love Island), but why?
He told us: "I'm very picky - we've had girls from Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Europe, Turkey, the UK, and what happens is they apply, I look at their looks and they have to write a description about why they would be a good girlfriend.
"Then we do a FaceTime so we can actually see what they really look like, because there's a lot of clever programmes out there that can make girls look a lot different than they really are."
Ah, we see even Candyman has been spooked by the old PhotoShop.
He continued: "I do fly them from anywhere in the world, I will either fly them to Australia or where I am overseas and then we go through a process, a trial period."
Like a job, LADbible suggested at this juncture.
"That's one way to put it," he laughed. "Probably more like online dating."
So there you have it. And if reading this has left you dreaming of a new life (and a very busy co-habited bedroom) in Aus, you can always apply here. Just remember, no filters.
