Dylan Alcott divides opinion after using a sex toy on his girlfriend in public


Dylan Alcott has sparked debate on social media after a video surfaced of him controlling a vibrating sex toy that was inside his sexologist girlfriend Chantelle Otten while they were out to dinner with friends.

The 2022 Australian of the Year and wheelchair tennis star, 31, was seen gleefully adjusting the intensity of Otten’s vibrator via an app on his phone, before her friends touched her crotch so they could feel the buzzing.

The footage has ruffled feathers on Twitter, with some critics saying Alcott’s behaviour was ‘unbecoming’ of a role model who was awarded one of his country’s highest honours, while others found his antics either hilarious or harmless.

‘As Australian of The Year, do we really need to read about your sexual adventures at a Sydney restaurant? is anything sacred in your world? Sort yourself out,’ one Twitter user grumbled.

Others begged Alcott to keep his sex life behind closed doors in the future.

‘Sorry Dylan, you have lost me! Do what you want in private but keep it off social media,’ one critic wrote.

However, Alcott did receive plenty of positive feedback, with many supporters saying his racy date night with Otten made the sporting hero even more likeable.

‘I just read an article about Dylan Alcott, a respected Paralympian, disability advocate and Australian of the Year, using a sex toy on his partner at a restaurant. Frankly I’m shocked. I didn’t think I could like him more than I already did, but here we are,’ one fan tweeted.

Others defended Alcott’s behaviour against the Twitter pile-on, writing: ‘Dylan Alcott did nothing that his partner didn’t want him to do. This whole woke society has gone too far. As far as I can tell he is in a loving relationship #LeaveDylanAlone.’

The footage in question showed Otten, 31, boasting about wearing a music-activated dinner while dining at a swanky restaurant in Sydney with Alcott and a group of friends.

She then had Alcott, who called time on his tennis career after the Australian Open, control the vibrator using an app on his phone.

Her friends then took turns touching her crotch to feel the buzzing.

Before heading out, Otten explained she was using the sex toy for Pride month.

‘To celebrate Pride, I decided to try something new to bring me pleasure,’ she told her 170,000 followers.

‘This part slips in your knickers,’ she added, while showing off the device.

‘It is designed to sit on the [clitoris], but after trying, I think it can also sit under the balls for [penis] owners. It’s a really fun toy and can be versatile.’

Once seated at the swanky restaurant with the toy placed inside of her, Otten flung her head back at the table as she enjoyed the sensations.

At one point, both Alcott and one of their friends poked and prodded at her crotch to feel the vibe.

As they touched the device, Otten giggled and writhed around, occasionally gasping and giggling in ecstasy.

‘I’m going to confirm it is fun,’ she captioned the video.

‘Great for date night. Hand over control to your partner (or whoever, really!) Great for parties. Was it restaurant appropriate? I don’t know, but we had fun!’

Alcott and Otten made their romance public at a tennis event in April 2019, and have been inseparable ever since.

Last year, Alcott told Good Weekend magazine he was very nervous before consummating his relationship with Otten, given that her entire career is centred around studying the sexual experience.

‘I thought, ‘You’re doing it with the best!’ But we’re both sex-positive. It’s important to me to talk about it,’ the wheelchair athlete explained.

Since finding love with Alcott, Ottenhas become a minor celebrity in Australia, racking up endorsement deals and thousands of followers on social media.

Last year, she released her first book, The Sex Ed You Never Had, and this week she was named the new brand ambassador for Kérastase hair products.

‘I was born with a tumour wrapped around my spinal cord that was cut out when I was only a couple of days old,’ the Victorian explained.

‘I’ve known nothing but having a disability. If I’m honest with you, I can’t tell you how much I used to hate myself. I used to hate having a disability. I hated it so much. I hated being different and I didn’t want to be here anymore.

‘But I’m so lucky that I had the best family, some of the best friends, my beautiful partner and my whole team who told me that I was worthy, and that I was allowed to be loved.’

Now he works tirelessly in the community leveraging his status as a professional athlete with 15 Grand Slam wheelchair tennis titles and three time Paralympic gold medals to change the perception around Aussies living with disabilities.

‘I love my disability. It is the best thing that ever happened to me,’ Alcott said.

‘I love the person that I am and the life I get to live and I’m the luckiest guy in this country, easily.’

Back in May, Alcott joined other Aussies honoured with awards on Australia Day who met Queen Elizabeth via video-chat to commemorate the monarch’s 70 years of service. 

During his introduction, Alcott discussed his sporting achievements and showdowns with British tennis stars. 

‘I fortunately won a couple Wimbledon titles and beat some Great Britain players, which I was happy about but maybe you weren’t so happy about,’ he joked.

The cheeky quip was enough to draw a giggle out of the Queen herself.
