Psychiatrist: Sex videos reveal his inferiority complex

Psychiatrist: Sex videos reveal his inferiority complex

SINCE Mr Gary Ng started posting his videos online, responses from netizens have been mixed.

Some have called Mr Ng 'disgusting' and 'shameless' for openly posting his videos.

One forum member wrote: 'I think it is really disturbing and disgusting that you (Gary) are so open (about it).'

Another added: 'What an animal. Nothing good will come of this.'

Others have praised him for his exploits, making him a mini-celebrity in the local blogosphere.

Some feel there has been too much hype over the videos.

One netizen said: 'You can get plenty of this stuff on many websites so I don't understand what's the big deal about this. It's not a recent trend.'

It is a form of sexual deviance, said Dr Tan Chue Tin, a consultant psychiatrist.

Three other psychiatrists and counsellors agreed that Mr Ng's act of filming his sex trysts were meant to be revenge on women in general.

Mr Charles Lee, senior counsellor at Tanjong Pagar Family Service Centre, said: 'It's a display of vengeance, not realising that in doing so, he is also shaming himself.

'He probably feels a need to prove to himself that he is good and can get so many women. And it becomes more a conquest (where) he needs to prove his sexual prowess more to himself than to others.'

Another explanation: an inferiority complex.

Dr Brian Yeo, a consultant psychiatrist, said: 'He probably feels belittled by his ex-girlfriends and now wants photographic evidence of his sexual attraction and ability to get so many girls.

'The videos are meant to boast to others and point to an inferiority complex.'

Psychologist Daniel Koh said: 'His acts reveal his pain and actually give him some comfort in thinking that he has made a mark with females in general.'

Dr Yeo added that Mr Ng is likely to be targeting the general group as he has had sex and made videos with so many women.

Dr Tan said: 'It's his form of punishment and retaliation against women. He sounds almost like a sexual psychopath.'

While some psychiatrists said he needed to be counselled, others felt it would not be sufficient.

Dr Tan said: 'I think he is at quite a hardcore stage as he seems to have been at this for quite some time.

'It will be difficult to change him just by counselling and it is better to have him kept away for treatment, rather than be let loose as he will not change.'
