Carol Bowditch pleaded guilty to having sex with various dogs, including St Bernard (stock image)
Carol Bowditch, 64, admitted the charges at Lincoln Crown Court but claimed she did not know that bestiality was illegal.
The case came to light following an RAF Police investigation into the sex parties after they were advertised on a bestiality internet forum.
During the gatherings women would have sex with the animals before having sex with the male owner of the dogs.
A DVD of the parties, as well as a USB stick which contained “extreme images” were found by police when they searched Ms Bowditch’s home in Evedon, Lincolnshire.
Bowditch pleaded guilty to the charge of having sexual intercourse with an animal between November 13, 2011 and November 25, 2014 at Lincolnshire Crown Court.
The court heard that there were at least eight photographs of Bowditch engaging in sex with various dogs as well as around 30 moving images of the acts.
Victoria Rose, prosecuting, told the court: “When the DVD was analysed it was found to contain extreme images.
“Those images portrayed persons committing penetrative sexual acts with dogs.
“Also included were images of this defendant herself carrying out sexual activity.

“When the defendant was interviewed she admitted she had penetrative sex with dogs.

“She accepted it had taken place over several years. She was unaware it was illegal.”
She also admitted possession of 37 extreme pornographic images on 21 March 2016.
Also on trial was Daniel Galloway, 65, of the same address, who admitted aiding and abetting Bowditch to have intercourse with an animal.
He also admitted charges of making indecent images of children, possession of a prohibited image of a child, distributing 1,861 indecent images of children and possession of extreme pornography.
His sentence was adjourned to a later date.
Her defence James Gray told the court: “She is 64 and has no previous convictions.

“Both she and Mr Galloway have suffered considerable public humiliation. They have been ostracised by their friends and family.
“They have suffered that added element of punishment which in less salacious cases would not be present.”
Bowditch was given a community order with 12 months supervision and a 16 week night-time curfew.
The maximum sentence for having sex with a dog is a two year jail sentence.
Judge Michael Heath told Bowditch: “What you engaged in was first of all unlawful and secondly disgusting.
“I am told that you have received public humiliation as a result of the publicity that this case has attracted. That does not surprise me.”
