Fairfax Media has been given a harrowing cache of illegal images and videos from a Facebook group called Melbourne’s Men’s Society. Many of the images appear to be of under-age women.

“They are teaching girls a lesson for, I don’t know, for sending them the images,” Cat said.

Melbourne’s Men’s Society was shut down by Facebook on Friday. But it is said to be only an imitator compared with another group known as Melbourne Blokes Trade, which has been operating for some time.

Melbourne’s Men’s Society had 7000 members, with another 4500 awaiting approval.

The group is hidden on Facebook, and people cannot apply to join it – its adminstrators choose members based on recommendations for induction.

The groups sit at the centre of a galaxy of “lads’ groups”, which contain low-level profanity and soft-core pornography, nothing like you’d find over at https://www.tubev.sex/?hl=es and other adult video services.
