Gondola Ride

JANUARY 21--A South Carolina couple is facing indecent exposure charges after allegedly filming themselves engaging in sex acts inside a glass gondola on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, records show.

Police allege that Lori Harmon and her husband Eric, both 36, were “within the view of the public” earlier this month when Lori exposed her breasts and performed oral sex on her spouse, whose penis was exposed.

The explicit activity was recorded and uploaded to an adult website, where it was viewed by Myrtle Beach Police Department officers. An arrest warrant does not identify the web site or reveal how investigators discovered the clip.

Other videos show the Harmons engaged in sex acts in a community pool and at a Myrtle Beach resort.

Seen above, the Harmons have been charged with indecent exposure and participation of obscene material. The couple was released on bond Sunday from the Horry County jail.

Under the name “Lucky Lacie,” the Harmons posted about 140 explicit videos to Pornhub, where their page had more than 11,000 subscribers and 2.7 million views before it recently disappeared. A cached version of the Pornhub page notes that, “We are a married couple and have been together for 18 years. We absolutely love sex and love getting risky in public.” The duo’s OnlyFans account--subscriptions to which cost $5 per month--appears to still be online.

The oceanfront Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, which opened in May 2011, is “not a carnival ride, but a modern, safe observation wheel towering almost 200 feet in the air,” according to its operators. The fully enclosed gondolas offer a “safe and secure flight with glass windows and doors for optimal views and photography.”

In 2016, a couple was arrested for having sex inside a glass-walled cabin on the 550-foot observation wheel on the Las Vegas Strip. While the duo engaged in a series of sex acts, the occupants of an adjacent cabin recorded the action with their phones. (1 page)
