Shrien Dewani surfed a gay fetish hook-up website the day after his murdered wife's body was found on their honeymoon,
court documents suggested yesterday.
In a series of dramatic admissions, the millionaire businessman said he accessed homosexual sites in the days before and after the death of Anni Dewani which he is accused of orchestrating.
The 34-year-old, who claims to be bi-sexual, used the logon name of 'asiansubguy' to take out premium membership of Recon, according to his admissions statement released by the court.
The term 'sub' is believed to refer to 'submissive'.
The document shows he was signed into Recon the day before Mrs Dewani was killed and two days after she died, staying logged on for several hours.
Recon describes itself as the 'world's largest hook-up site for men into fetish gear' and has 38,000 members.
He also logged onto gay dating website Gaydar while he and his new bride waited for an internal flight after two nights at a safari lodge on their luxury getaway.
Gaydar boasts of being 'the premier gay dating site. Home to millions of men'.

Dewani also dialled into the site from the Cape Grace hotel, but deactivated his accounts with the websites a week after 28-year-old Mrs Dewani's murder. He had been a member for six years.
It had earlier been revealed that he had used Gaydar to connect with a male prostitute known as the German Master.
The bulky 'List of Admissions' documents were handed into the Western Cape High Court as facts accepted by Dewani and his defence team ahead of the trial.

According to the bundle, Mrs Dewani's cousin Sneha Hindocha made a secret recording of a meeting between Anni's family and Dewani ten days after her murder, apparently already suspicious of his possible involvement.
Mrs Dewani had confessed serious doubts about her relationship with Dewani to Sneha including the spurning of her sexual advances.

Earlier, a hitman convicted of murdering Mrs Dewani told the murder trial how he was hired by the millionaire's tour guide to carry out the killing.
Mziwamadoda Qwabe, 29, said he was approached by Dewani's taxi driver who told him 'there was a husband who wanted his wife killed' hours before she was shot.
Qwabe, who is serving a 25-year sentence after admitting the murder, claimed he and an accomplice were promised R15,000 (£1,300 at previous rates) to carry out the attack.
Prosecutors allege Qwabe was hired by Dewani through his taxi driver and guide Zola Tongo to kill his new bride in a staged carjacking in November 2010.
Taking the stand today, Qwabe told how he took a call from a friend called Monde the day before Mrs Dewani was killed.
'He told me that there was a job that needed to be done,' Qwabe said.
'I said he could hand over my phone number to the person who needed the job done and he could call me. I got the call the same day from a man, his name was Zola (Tongo).'
Qwabe said he was with accomplice Xolile Mngeni - who ended up carrying out the contract killing with him - when he took the call.
The men met up the next day, on the morning of the murder.

Qwabe added: 'Zola said someone wanted somebody killed and did I know anyone.
'He said there was a husband who wanted his wife killed but it had to look like a hijacking. We agreed on the route and where the hijacking was going to happen.'
They agreed that a good place would be near Mzoli's - a well-known restaurant popular with tourists - in the sprawling township of Khayelitsha, Qwabe told the court.
He said they agreed a fee of R15,000 (around £1,300 at the exchange rate at the time) which would be left in 'a cubby hole in the backseat of the car'.
He added that Tongo arrived for the meeting with Qwabe in the same car in which Mrs Dewani's body was discovered the following morning.
On the evening of the killing, Qwabe and Mngeni, whose nickname is Watti, met up at a bar to await a call from Tongo, he said.
He later called them from a restaurant outside Cape Town where he had driven the newlyweds for dinner.
'He said that the husband wanted the job done that same evening,' Qwabe told the hushed court, as Dewani shook his head firmly in the dock.
The hired killers 'proceeded to the corner we had agreed on. I had kitchen gloves on so I didn't leave fingerprints.'
Once they arrived at the corner, Qwabe received a text message from Zola to say 'they were close by'.
Qwabe was urinating up against a fence when he saw the car approaching the corner and shouted at his accomplice: 'Here's the car.'
'As it approached, it stopped, my accused (Mngeni) pointed a gun at it.
'I got into the driver's seat, Watti got into the passenger's seat, Zola got in at the back left hand side, there was a guy and a lady.
'I drove the vehicle. Watti was facing the passengers in the back, telling them to be quiet and all those things'.
Almost immediately after setting off, they ordered Tongo out of the car, he said.
'As he got out, he said the money was in a pouch behind the front passenger door. He spoke in Xhosa,' Qwabe said.
The contract killers continued with just the newlyweds in the car and then 20 minutes later, the car stopped and the men ordered Dewani out of the vehicle, telling him 'to go to one of the nearby houses and report the incident, the hijacking'.

Asked by the prosecutor if there was resistance by Dewani, Qwabe answered: 'I don't recall.'
'I heard a gunshot. After the gunshot, I got a shock. Watti replied that he had shot the lady.
'I pulled over on to the pavement and stopped the car. I saw she (Anni) was on the back seat of the car.'
They opened the back door, where Anni was now taking her last breaths having suffered a fatal and paralysing gunshot wound to the neck, he added.
The family of Mrs Dewani had pain etched on their faces as they strained to hear every word spoken by Qwabe about her last, terrifying moments.
Shrien Dewani's family also looked grief-stricken on the opposite side of the court.
In the dock, Dewani scribbled furiously in a file of papers, writing with his left hand, betraying little emotion apart from perhaps mild irritation with the testimony he was hearing.
Qwabe said they shared the money that Mngeni had retrieved from the back of the car - R10,000 from the car in two bundles 'which was short of the R15,000' - and shared the phones to sell them.
Qwabe said he went back to Kyelitsha and spent the rest of the night socialising.
'Mngeni said he would sort it out [the missing money] with Mondo as he was the one who had arranged the job. I wanted the other R5,000'
A few days later, police arrived at his house to arrest him just as he was watching a football match on television between South Africa and the USA.
After initially denying involvement in the murder, he confessed to his part and helped recover the firearm.

Wearing a white T-shirt, black Nike sports jacket with luminous yellow piping, Qwabe confirmed he was arrested only days after Mrs Dewani's body was found in the back of an abandoned taxi.
He confirmed to prosecutor Adrian Mopp that he had identified his accomplices, Mngeni and Tongo, after his arrest.
Under cross-examination by Dewani's counsel, Francois van Zyl, Qwabe admitted that he had previously lied in court at a bail hearing before he eventually admitted his guilt over Mrs Dewani's death in 2012.
Mr van Zyl said: 'At that bail hearing, you testified under oath you pleaded not guilty because you said you had an alibi. Is that a lie?'
'My lawyer at the time told me to pleaded not guilty, Qwabe'
Pressing further, Mr van Zyl said: 'I repeat the question. Was that a lie under oath?'
Qwabe answered: 'Yes.'
Qwabe said there were no conversations with Tongo about how the victim would be killed, only that it had to look like a hijacking.
Mr van Zyl asked: 'You never had a discussion about how this woman was going to be killed?'
'No, sir,' Qwabe said.
He said it was not decided who would strike the fatal blow, what weapon would be used, or where the killing would take place.
Earlier, Qwabe was escorted into the witness box by heavily-armed prison guards, having been driven to court early in a prison van.
It was the first time that Dewani had seen the hitman he is accused of recruiting since the fateful night of November 13 when his new bride was killed.
The accused looked firmly down at his own hands in the dock rather than cast his gaze in the direction of the self-confessed killer as he gave evidence.
Shrien Dewani with his wife Anni, whom he is accused of murdering by hiring at hitman to stage a violent carjacking on their honeymoon in South Africa four years ago
Dewani, 34, denies plotting to have his wife kidnapped and murdered on their honeymoon to South Africa in November 2010.
Prosecutors are expected to say the wealthy businessman's secret life as a gay man who frequented fetish clubs, chatrooms and slept with male prostitutes motivated Dewani to want his new wife dead.
Bristol-based Dewani is accused of recruiting Tongo within hours of arriving in Cape Town on their honeymoon, tasking him with organising the murder which was disguised as a violent 'carjacking' as the couple were driven on a late-night township tour.
Pleading guilty to kidnapping, robbery, murder and illegal possession of a firearm, Qwabe appeared at the same court two years ago where Dewani is now on trial.
He later gave evidence at the trial of his accomplice Mngeni, which was attended by Mrs Dewani's family, who live in Sweden, and and offered them an apology from the witness box.
'I truly and humbly regret and apologise about what happened to your daughter.
'If ever, or whenever, they can find it in their hearts to forgive me, I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart,' he told them.
Mngeni, who is suffering from untreatable cancer, is believed to be too ill to take the stand.
Shrien and Anni Dewani pictured on South African hotel CCTV On the opening day of Dewani's trial on Monday, the millionaire dramatically admitted he was bisexual and had used male prostitutes.
The businessman confessed to sleeping with Leopold Leisser – nicknamed the German Master – and other escorts he had met online or in gay clubs.
As the parents of his late wife Anni sat yards from him in the packed courtroom, he confessed their daughter had found him intense and controlling and they fought frequently during their 18-month relationship.
But he denied having her shot in a staged carjacking on their Cape Town honeymoon four years ago.
In a statement read by his lawyer, Dewani said: 'I have had sexual interaction with both males and females. I consider myself to be bisexual.'
Dewani suggested the sex with men was merely a question of physical encounters with virtual strangers.
'My sexual interactions with males were mostly physical experiences or email chats with people I met online or in clubs, including prostitutes such as Leopold Leisser,' he said.
'My sexual interactions with females were usually during the course of a relationship which consisted of other activities and emotional attachment.'
Leisser, who is expected to be a prosecution witness, has told how he met the tycoon for drug-fuelled sex games three times during the build-up to the latter's wedding in October 2010.
Dewani, 34, and from Bristol, is said to have begged him to humiliate and racially abuse him.
He told how a few months after meeting his future wife he had testosterone replacement therapy because of 'abnormally low hormone levels' which he was warned might have harmed his chances of fatherhood.

But he insisted he was instantly physically attracted to his wife when they first met in May 2009, and he sensed there was a mutual chemistry.
Swedish-born Anni, 28, was shot in the neck after gunmen stormed the couple's taxi when they visited a township in Cape Town.
Dewani, who took £7,000 cash with him to South Africa, is accused of paying hitmen £1,200 to kill Anni during a fake robbery organised by his taxi driver Zola Tongo.
He insists he had nothing to do with the crime and was ordered out of the car at gunpoint.
Dewani, who is being held at Cape Town's Valkenberg psychiatric hospital, appeared distracted for much of the hearing.
He later bowed his head and wept as footage was shown of his wife's body slumped in the taxi where she was shot.
He spoke only twice – when asked to enter a plea and then to confirm the truth of his statement.
He denied charges of murder, kidnapping, conspiracy to kidnap, robbery with aggravating circumstances and defeating the ends of justice.
Anni's father, Vinod Hindocha, shook as Dewani entered his plea.
Her mother Nilam, 62, brother Anish, 25, uncle Ashok, 53, and cousin Nishma, 25, were also in court.
