Nigel Wilkinson, 45, was already serving an 11 and a half year prison sentence after being convicted of two counts of rape, three counts of administering a substance with intent to rape and possession of class C drugs.
He has now been found guilty of offences against a total of nine men between 2014 and 2016.
Judge James Patrick said Wilkinson was a “dangerous” offender who had a “longstanding sexual interest in straight men”. He said his crimes involved a “significant degree” of planning and recognised the psychological harm inflicted on the victims.
Senior Investigating Officer DI Larisa Hunt said: “I welcome the substantial custodial sentence given to Nigel Wilkinson which reflects the horrific crimes he committed against nine men.
“If he hadn’t been arrested, I’ve no doubt he would have carried on with his campaign of offending.
“The significant psychological impact on the victims can never be under-estimated and our thoughts are with them today as they try to move on with their lives.”
