THIS is the internet entrepreneur who provides sex on the web - and believes he is above the law.
Baby-faced Aidan Dorney, 30, is behind a number of successful business sites.
But now the silver-haired former private investigator has branched out and is running an exclusive escort service from his own home in Dublin.
And he believes that by only hiring "one good girl" he can make money and avoid being caught by Gardai. Dorney said one escort could earn up to EUR3,000 a week
He added: "I'm going to get her to work from my apartment and if the Garda call, I'll tell them she is my girlfriend.
"That way I can't be caught. If you have a number of girls working in a brothel, you're leaving yourself open.
"This way, I can run a business and the Garda can't touch me."
During a Sunday Mirror investigation, Dorney tried to hire an undercover female reporter to work from his two-bedroom apartment in The Waterside complex on Dublin's Charlotte Quay.
Dorney told her she could make EUR400 an hour working as a high-class escort if she provided full sex, oral sex and kinky sex.
He boasted about how he runs five internet sites, including the well-known escortsireland.com and irishescorts.net
Customers log on and can select from a number of escort girls on offer from their photographs and mobile number on the sites, which have been in operation since 2000.
Dorney also told of his plans to expand his internet vice business until he has more than FORTY such sites.
He said: "In the next few years, I am going to have sites everywhere. I'll have them all over Ireland and the UK.
"These days, everybody looks for prostitutes on the web. It's the main way of getting in touch with girls and in Ireland it's the only way.
"Our sites are always busy - so many people log on to them. They are really successful."
The Sunday Mirror reporter made contact with Dorney through his main website, escortsireland.com
The site has an "employment" section, which girls can contact and offer their services. Posing as an escort seeking employment, the reporter emailed him her number and he then called her up offering work.
They arranged to meet in the posh Ocean Bar, close to his apartment.
Well-dressed Dorney arrived with his guard dog, a Great Dane almost as big as himself.
Over a drink, he explained how he runs his business. He said: "You can work from my apartment for as many days as you want.
"I will be hiding in one bedroom and you can bring the client to the other.
"You'll need kinky stuff - high heels, stockings and suspenders, fancy underwear.
"If you could get dominatrix gear like whips and cuffs and that you'd make a fortune.
"You will get paid by the half hour - and a girl like you could easily make EUR200 for a half an hour's work.
"That includes everything, oral sex, full sex or even anal sex if you're up for it. It pays by the time, not by the act.
"You're a good looking girl and a decent girl and that's what the men want.
"You could make up to EUR3,000 a month, no problem."
Dorney told how the plan would be to promote the undercover reporter as a high-class escort and put her picture on the website.
He even offered to take the photographs himself, adding: "I could get really nice pictures of you in your underwear and we could block out your face.
"That way nobody would know who you were, but the customers could get a look at you and it would entice them.
"We can put your picture up really big on the site and promote you as a sexy secretary or something.
"There are some men who will want to take you out for the whole evening - for dinner and drinks and that - and then want you to stay the night. …
