Dr Thomas Plimmer claims he is sex addict after 'romps with women in surgery & showing off 197 X-rated pics & vids' | The Sun

A DOCTOR has claimed he is a sex addict after romping with women in his surgery and showing off nearly 200 X-rated pics and videos, a tribunal has heard.

Dr Thomas Plimmer faces accusations from at least six women – including a colleague who said their weekly sex sessions at work were "unwanted".

The woman, referred to as Miss A, claimed she was "groomed" into regular sex with Dr Plimmer at the clinic in Swindon.

Miss A said she felt used as a "sex object" to help Dr Plimmer's boredom.

A tribunal had also previously heard how Dr Plimmer showed Miss A 197 photos and videos of himself having sex with other women.

He apologised for his "disgusting" behaviour at a Medical Practitioners Tribunal misconduct hearing – but blamed his actions on his sex addiction.

Dr Plimmer said: "Seeking out sexual activity felt like a need, and I did lie in order to get that need met.

"But there was no sense of me enjoying this because I like lying, or it gives me power, or it gives me control.

"They were all byproducts of trying to meet my need – the sense that my compulsion was greater than the will to resist.

"I am sincerely apologetic to everyone I've lied to, and the consequences had towards patients and not being there to care for them."

He added: "Those are six people who are obviously upset, and in some cases, the lifestyle I was living.

"What I did was disgusting and there's no excuse for that. I betrayed their trust.

"I disrespected them, and I lied and I cheated and there's no excuse for that."

Disputing Miss A's testimony, Dr Plimmer said: "Not only was she consenting – there was keenness and enthusiasm and enjoyment of what was happening between the two of us.

"At no point did I get the sense she did it to placate me.

"There was no sense whatsoever she was not enjoying the interactions we were having."


Earlier in the tribunal said Miss A felt "groomed" by the doctor into becoming a "sex object for a sex addict".

She said: "I was very compliant at the time. I don't deny this, but how I ended up in that role is different.

"He knew he was in a position of power. We had had other conversations about my isolation and the way I responded to people.

"Then when I said no to touching me, he did. I said no to penetration and he did.

"What he likes is power. This is all about power."

Miss A added: "As a man in a position of power to me it was completely ingrained, it was self-protection, it was easier to do what you are asked."

She said when she first raised concern she only spoke about an incident where he had made her place her hands on his penis.

Miss A said the first time he had penetrated her, she told him "no" as she said there was a "no touching rule".

She added: "He knew I said no as he was doing it – and that wasn't in the rules.

"He pushed those boundaries and they definitely did not include penetration."


Miss A said that "once that boundary had gone" it was "easier for that to be how things were."

She claimed after that first encounter there were "times when she complied" and did not "verbalise a no" and other times she did.

She added: "There were times when I allowed penetration and times when I said no.

"I am not what proud of happened – and it is not what I am now."

"This was a man – who was in a position of power – who did things to me without consent – and that damage is done to me.

"Those scars will be there forever – it has completely impacted my life."

The tribunal is examining allegations that during the period May 2018 to September 2019, Plimmer behaved in a sexually motivated way towards Miss A, whom he knew to be vulnerable.

It is also alleged that between January to June 2020 and in February 2021, he behaved in a sexually motivated way towards four other women.

It is further alleged that in March 2021, he made a threat towards another woman.

The tribunal earlier heard the doctor went on to invite two women he met on dating sites to the surgery where he engaged in sex acts with them during working hours.
