Alvin Tan Jye Yee and Vivian Lee blog sexy photos of themselves

Alvin Tan Jye Yee, a National University of Singapore (NUS) law scholarship holder, came to his 15 minutes of fame after he had posted sexy photos and videos of himself and his girlfriend Vivian Lee on his blog named Sumptuous Erotica. His name topped the top searches list in Singapore and they have been covered in most of the publications in Singapore and Malaysia.

The photos and videos starring Alvin and Vivian (this is how the videos start), now circulating in the internet, are very explicit (far in the extreme range) and created outrage here. Some newspapers wrote that the photos and videos may have brought more than attention over him now.[1] According to a Singaporean lawyer if he enters Singapore, Alvin Tan Jye Yee could be prosecuted for breaching the Films Act of Singapore for his obscene videos. This is the case even if he is not Singaporean (he is Malaysian studying in NUS) and the videos may not have been shot here. Worse, he has added that he may have also broken school rules of NUS.

But according to a comment in Facebook on the article, he may have leaved Singapore long ago and setup his own business. He is listed as CEO and Co-Founder, Fezzl Pte. Ltd in and linked-in. He also writes his education as LL.B. (Hons.) at National University of Singapore so he may have even been graduated. The New Paper confirms that he has left NUS 2011. According to The New Paper, the couple (living in Kuala Lumpur and Johor) started a public blog to share what they do in private with the world. (Yahoo SG reported that he Tan has taken a leave of absence from school to pursue a daily deals business.)[3]

The New Paper also gave more details about the couple. The couple, Alvin and Vivian, have met through Facebook and got together in April this year. The couple has first posted their nude photos on Facebook but after they are taken down they have decided to start their own blog to share the pictures. They have first posted photos on Tumblr on September 20th.[2]

Vivian Lee defended erotic posts and said she has no regrets making her sexual life public:

"I see nothing wrong in posting the nude pictures and videos of our sexual relationship on the Internet. It was intended for the world to see how much we love each other. I cannot understand why people have to make so much fuss about this. It is our private affair," she said.[5]

He has also claimed that he has been counselled by The Office of Student Affairs at NUS because of "sexual words" that he has posted on Facebook. Someone basically took his screengrab and complaint about him to The Office.

After all the attention and uproar, Alvin Tan Jye Yee has taken down his blog. But photos of Alvin And Vivian are already circulating in the internet. Still, he has been served a notice to appear before a board from National University of Singapore (NUS).[4] He reportedly said: "What can (NUS) do? Terminate my scholarship or expel me? I can't say I will be fine with it, but if it happens, I can accept it.''

There were other cases of online photo scandals in Singapore recently. In one case, Chen Guilin a.k.a Gary Ng posted lots of sex video clips of himself with many woman. Dubbed as Singapore's Edison Chen, he was jailed 4 years and 2 months and was fined $20,000 in 2011. Back in 2004, a self proclaimed Sarong Party Girl Chloe Cheng or Isabella X caused some uproar in Singapore after she has posted some naked/nude photos of hers in her blog.
