Motel Owner Secretly Watched Guests Having Sex For Decades

A former motel owner is admitting that he secretly watched couples having sex in their rooms for decades.

Gerald Foos began his voyeuristic activities in the mid-60s when, with the help of his then-wife, he installed fake vents in the ceilings of numerous rooms.

These admissions are among the many he makes in a new piece written about him in the New Yorker by journalist Gay Talese.

Foos first reached out to the writer in 1980 because he related to Talese's forthcoming book on sex called "Thy Neighbor's Wife."

According to the New Yorker, Foos eventually revealed that he has kept a log of all his observations; in 1973, for example, he tallied 296 sexual acts, 184 male orgasms and 33 female orgasms.

But, according to Talese, the man doesn't see himself as a Peeping Tom pervert but more as "an observer of human nature," reports the Denver Post.

Foos likely will not face criminal charges related to the voyeurism because the statute of limitations has expired.

He sold the property in 1995.
