A man who was charged after entering a stranger's home carrying a machete has been found not guilty after it was explained to the court that he was hired to act out a sexual fantasy and had attended the wrong house by mistake. Quite a lot to take in there, isn't there?

Two men in Australia say they were hired by a man over Facebook for a bit of role play, with him asking them to enter his home, tie him up while he was wearing just his underpants, and then stroke him with the handle of a broom. Well, each to their own, I guess.

As part of the plans, he naturally gave the men his address - which he later updated after he moved to a new house. Can you see what's about to happen here?

On the night of 14 July 2019, a resident living on the same street as the first address woke up in the night and saw a light coming from his living room.

He initially thought it was a friend, who usually came over daily, and told him to 'bugger off', the Guardian reports.

The man says he was then asked if his name was the name of the guy who had arranged the scenario, at which point he turned on his bedside lamp and saw two men standing at his bedside holding machetes.

After he told them his actual name - which was not the same as the intended client's - the men left with one saying 'sorry mate' and attempting to shake his hand.

As you can imagine after that interaction, the chap called the cops who found the men and the machetes in the car.

The case was brought to court and one of the men has since been acquitted, with Judge Sean Grant explaining: "They carried the machetes either as a prop or something to use in that fantasy.

"The fantasy was unscripted and there was discretion as to how it would be carried out."

He went on to detail the deal, saying the man had asked to be 'tied up and have a broom handle rubbed around his underwear'.

The judge added: "He was willing to pay $5,000 if it was 'really good'."

He said that while the man had entered the first house carrying a machete it had not been proved that he had done it to intimidate.

The fella's barrister was able to successfully argue that the entry to the property was 'for a non-criminal purpose', explaining: "It was a commercial agreement to tie up and stroke a semi-naked man in his underpants with a broom." Yeah, fair enough.
