Gondola Pair Popped

SEPTEMBER 22--The South Carolina couple who pleaded guilty earlier this year to multiple indecent exposure charges--one of which involved a sex act in a glass gondola on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel--was arrested today for allegedly again committing illicit acts in public.

Lori Harmon, 36, and Eric Harmon, 37, were booked this morning into the Horry County jail on indecent exposure charges.  The couple, married for 17 years, was also charged with participation in preparation of obscene material.

According to arrest warrants, the Harmons in late July engaged in a sex act while inside a photo booth at an arcade (video of Lori fellating Eric was posted to Twitter, police say). Lori is also accused of exposing herself and participating in sex acts with another individual while on the front porch of the couple's residence. Eric was charged with “preparation of the obscene film that occurred at the incident location,” footage that was posted to Twitter.

The Harmons are pictured above in mug shots taken today and are seen below in a photo posted to Instagram.

The Harmons were arrested twice earlier this year in connection with a series of indecent acts--many of which they recorded--in Myrtle Beach and nearby Surfside Beach, the town where the couple resides. 

As detailed in a court filing, one of the pair’s X-rated encounters occurred in January inside a glass gondola on the oceanfront Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. Video posted to Pornhub showed Lori exposing her breasts and performing oral sex on her husband, “who has his penis exposed.” The act, investigators alleged, occurred “within the view of the public.”

Lori Harmon’s Pornhub page once housed about 140 explicit videos and had more than 11,000 subscribers. The page noted that, “We are a married couple and have been together for 18 years. We absolutely love sex and love getting risky in public.”

In April, the Harmons pleaded guilty to indecent exposure counts and were each sentenced to three years, a penalty that a judge suspended in favor of two-year probation terms. Today’s arrest will likely trigger probation violation charges being filed against the couple.

At sentencing, defense attorney Stephen Grooms told the judge that the duo “learned a tremendous lesson in what you can do at home versus what you can do in public.”

While the couple’s Pornhub account has been deleted, Lori has an OnlyFans page that charges subscribers $10 per month. “Let me just start by saying I am definitely not like the other girls you see on here. It’s something I just love doing,” her page declares. “Sharing my sexuality with others is such a turn on especially knowing I can turn other people on. I do have some special fetish videos that I sell so don’t be afraid to ask.”

Harmon’s Amazon wish list--linked from her OnlyFans page--includes an assortment of lingerie, panties, one sex toy, and an $83.44 bucket of Rawlings softballs. (2 pages)
