Sports Coach In Australia Caught Sending Explicit Messages To Teenage Boys Blames It On Porn

A sports coach at one of Australia’s most exclusive private schools who sent explicit messages to teenage boys has blamed his behaviour on sexual experiences he had as a student at the same institution.

Bradley Robert Wall was coaching volleyball at Barker College at Hornsby on Sydney’s upper north shore when he sent indecent material via text and social media to five boys aged 13 to 15.

The now 24-year-old would meet boys at other schools and sporting competitions and engage them in conversation about God, pornography and masturbation.

He asked two boys to send him pictures of their genitals, asked another if he had ever measured his penis and offered a third $100 towards a surfboard if he could abstain from masturbating for a month.

Wall, who was also a youth leader at Manly Life Church and a member of Christian Surfers Australia, initially believed he had been ‘helping’ the boys.

In one message to a 14-year-old Wall wrote: ‘Do you w**k often?… I struggled heaps with it at your age. Got completely lost in everything… how often would you say you do. Be honest. I used to do it 2 times a day, so there’s no shame bro.’

Downing Centre District Court heard while none of the boys Wall sent lewd messages were students at Barker his offending could be traced back to experiences he had while a young boarder at that school.

Barker is an independent Anglican day and boarding school which charges fees of up to $32,328 and is coeducational from Years 10 to 12.

Wall had been raised in a devoutly Christian family at Manly and became conflicted about sex after watching pornography in the company of other boys at Barker from the age of 13.

‘Mr Wall became involved in a school/social culture of pornography watching and sharing from his early teens onwards,’ his psychologist wrote in a report.

When Wall was in Year 7 a boy about two years older had masturbated in front of him and said ‘you should give it a go.’

He had subsequently watched internet pornography and masturbated with four other students the same age as him at various times.

‘I blame it at school on not being in the Christian mindset… I was not Christian enough until 2016,’ Wall told a psychiatrist.

Wall’s parents wrote to the court: ‘What we did not know was that Brad had fallen victim to sexual encounters early in his high school years that led to emotional, spiritual and physical struggles.’

Wall pleaded guilty to five counts of using a carriage service to transmit indecent material to a person under 16 and one of soliciting child pornography.

The maximum sentence for each of the first series of offences is seven years in prison, while the pornography offence carries 15 years.

Between July 2015 and September 2017 Wall communicated by text and Facebook Messenger with boys he had met through coaching volleyball and surfing.

Wall met 15-year-old BK at an interstate beach volleyball competition in April 2017 and soon began sending him messages over Facebook.

‘The accused initiated a general conversation and made reference to his Christian faith and shortly turned the conversation to masturbation,’ an agreed statement of facts said.

Wall: ‘I’m gunn put you on the spot here dude. How do you go with porn and w**king? Be as honest as you can. Like do you struggle with that stuff? Do you watch porn? Or w**k or both or none at all?’

‘I used to watch hours and hours of porn and w*** so much… God removed all my addictions about 9 months ago when I surrendered my heart.’

Wall then asked BK about his masturbation habits and spoke of sinners being healed by prayer. BK turned the conversation to volleyball but Wall returned to sex.

‘How did you discover w**king in the first place… you’re a little slower at replying, you’re having a sneaky tug now? Cmon put it away.’

The 188cm (6’2″) tall Wall then asked BK to send him a picture of his penis.

‘besides porn I’ve never seen an uncircumcised D – and coz you’re the same size – I’ll show first if you do. Merely a curiosity thing… dude just do it? Do it once and then done.’

The coach met CG shortly before his 15th birthday at the same beach volleyball tournament that he met BK.

‘The accused initially spoke about Jesus and asked CG about his religious beliefs, then turned the conversation to sexual matters,’ the statement of facts said.

Now don’t get me wrong – I’m not perfect,’ wrote. ‘For about 12 years of my life I glorified my d**k – you name a technique or locations and I’ve done it,’ Wall wrote.

On one occasion CG told Wall he had completed a cross country course that day and had sore calves. Wall replied: ‘Tight calves and also carrying an extra load between!’ The message was followed by a crying-with-laughter emoji.

Wall met AJ through a Christian surfing group when the boy was 14 in March 2017. Wall began asking AJ about his relationship with God but soon moved onto masturbation and pornography.

‘Ok the best way to deal with porn is these few points 1. You have a perfectly functioning brain, use your imagination instead… 2. The more you watch porn, the more your thoughts of what sex truely is gets distorted… 3. Those girls are someone’s daughters…’
