Police in Bali are investigating a man, alleged to be German, who is widely known across virtual porn communities for recording ‘sex diaries’ in the region.

An entry apparently in Bali, entitled ‘Asd Ria From Bali’ (Asd meaning Asian Sex Diary), prompted the investigation.

The nearly 45-minute-long video that has reportedly already garnered tens of thousands of views since it was posted last week shows the notorious bule, ‘John Tron,’ having sex with a young woman who he identifies as Ria. Scenes show Tron picking up Ria—who is said to be just 18 years old—at a restaurant and bringing her back to his hotel. The location in the video is believed to be Sanur.

Police say they have tracked down the identity of the woman in the video, but have not made any arrests.

The IP address used to post the video was traced to Germany, so police say they believe the bule is likely German.

Bali Police spokesman Superintendent Hengky Widjaja told reporters that police are also investigating the hosting site itself for the porn video, which local paper Tribun Bali hilariously censored the name of, publishing it as  ‘Po**g*n’.

The spokesman added that people should not download or help spread the video under investigation, because doing so is a criminal offense in Indonesia under the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law.

Downloading or spreading the material could be punishable with a six-year jail term or a fine of Rp 3 billion, Widjaja said.
