A businessman allegedly groomed a 15-year-old schoolgirl on an Instagram chat site before travelling 167 miles to meet her in a play park.
Dominic Nielen-Groen exchanged messages on the Daddy Dom Little Girl site for weeks with the girl.
He called himself Papa Bear and met her in a play park in Seaton where they hugged and he asked her to suck on a child's dummy and go with him to the beach or nearby marshland, Exeter Crown Court was told.

Police allegedly recovered a hand written set of rules and punishments at his home in Wolverhampton.
The punishments included self-spanking, cold baths, and being tied up.
They also seized a purple child's dummy and a small-sized collar with the words Little Girl written on it.
Father-of-two Nielen-Groen, aged 45, of Wolverhampton, who runs an IT business, denies meeting a child following grooming with the intention of committing a sexual offence.
He says he thought the girl was over 18 and playing the role of a younger girl and that he had not intended any sexual activity.
Mr Simon Burns, prosecuting, said: 'They met in a play park and he ended up hugging her and with her playing on swings before they moved to a bench where he produced a child's dummy'. The dummy pictured above is a stock photo used for illustrative purposes and is not the dummy used [File photo]
Mr Simon Burns, prosecuting, said the girl started using an Instagram site known as DDLG, standing for Daddy Dom Little Girl, last year and was contacted by Nielen-Groen.
