An ex-soldier shocked passers-by after she flashed her penis and committed a vulgar sex act with a wheelie bin in public.
Chloe Thompson, 42, was caught in an alley as she performed the vile act by using a sex toy that she attached to the bin in Middlesbrough.
Teesside Crown Court heard how she behaved in an "overtly sexualised manner in the presence of families and children" on August 13 last year.
On the same day, she exposed herself while thrusting her hips in the window of her home, which three children sickeningly witnessed, reports Teesside Live.
One witness described seeing "a male on the street", "wearing women's clothing" and seeing that person "lifting and playing with their penis".
On Tuesday (April 12), Thompson had been due to be sentenced but the judge asked for more information in order to assess if "structures can be in place to protect the public from such behaviour" if he were to hand out a suspended jail term.
Judge Stephen Carroll asked the probation service to produce an addendum report to consider if Thompson would comply with a period of deferment of three months before sentencing was passed.
"Due to the duration and unpleasantness a custodial sentence is inevitable," he said.
"The only thing I need to find out is whether it could be suspended, given the challenges you faced and the time that has lapsed and the work that has been done during this difficult time."
The court had heard how Thompson was "somebody who is going through a number of difficulties" and is "struggling to decide who she is".

Defending Tom Bennett said: "She is trying to make changes but certainly at the start of that process felt somewhat isolated and erratic in her behaviour."
The judge told Thompson he was aware of the challenges faced "in terms of your gender identity".
He described the offending as "repugnant and offensive to the people around you."
"You are entitled to appropriate respect and courtesy and assistance in facing the challenges ahead of you but that respect goes both ways," he said.
Thompson has 17 convictions for 22 offences and was still under a suspended sentence order at the time of her latest crimes.
Previously convicted as Andrew McNab, the defendant had been put on the sex offenders' register and made subject to notification requirements in 2011 for sexually assaulting an underage girl.
But she was hauled back before courts in May last year for breaching her notification requirements for the 11th time.
Thompson admitted three charges in relation to her latest offending.
She must return to court on April 26 and was granted conditional bail.
