Videos of the x-rated material were quickly captured and uploaded to social media, however.

"The suspect claims he worked alone," Jakarta Police Chief Muhammad Iriawan told AFP. "But we are still investigating whether he was working alone, whether he had a particular motive or whether he was just fooling around."

The Muslim-majority nation is highly conservative, and often censors lovemaking scenes in television and movies. Access to pornographic websites are routinely blocked, as well as Tumblr and Vimeo, as users of those sites also upload adult content.

Police Chief Iriawan stated that the IT professional may be charged under the Electronic Transaction Law which carries up to six years in prison and a fine of 1 billion rupiah ($77,000) or the Pornography Law, which carries a sentence of up to 12 years imprisonment.
