A SOUTHAMPTON woman has denied leading children into rooms in her home to take part in sex games. Clair Winkworth is accused of asking boys to commit sex acts with her.

She is also accused of having sex with a pre-teen boy.

The 24-year-old played games of ‘Truth or Dare’ and ‘Sex Dice’ at her flat in Redbridge Towers and had led to boys and girls going off into different rooms to commit sex acts, Southampton Crown Court heard.

In a videotaped interview with a police officer conducted in front of his mother, one boy described how two girls and Winkworth lapdanced in front of him and his best friend when they only had their boxer shorts on.

The girls were wearing pyjamas and Winkworth sat on the sofa wearing silky red underwear.

He admitted he had got “a bit excited”.

The youth told the officer how his best friend initiated a ‘truth and dare’ game in which they and Winkworth got under the bedclothes.

He then went on to describe how there were two dice. One had the words ‘suck’, ‘tickle’, lick’ and ‘nibble’ while the other had the room names kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room on it.

The youth said: “Say I went first. I rolled it. Say if it was lick and I have to pick someone, we have to go there and I have to lick, lick part of her body.”

The officer asked: “Who chooses what part of the body that happens on?” and he said: “The person that’s doing it.”

But when arrested Winkworth denied to police she had been involved in any sexual acts.

The jury heard that games of ‘Truth or Dare’ and ‘Sex Dice’ at Winkworth’s flat in Redbridge Towers had led to boys and girls going off into different rooms to commit sex acts.

Prosecutor Peter Towler alleged: “Some children would go into different rooms with each other with the knowledge and encouragement of the defendant and sometimes she would go into one of the rooms with one of the boys on her own.”

When police searched Winkworth’s flat, they discovered a Valentine’s card and two red thongs one of the boys had sent her, the court heard. They also found various items of underwear, a sex game and sex toys.

Winkworth denies seven charges of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and one charge each of sexual activity with a child and one of indecent assault.

Mr Towler said after her arrest, Winkworth told the police she had danced in the “ordinary sense” in front of the children but was emphatic she had not lapdanced and she had never been involved in any sexual activity with them.

If there had been any, she had been unaware of it.
