(iWIDK by Daniel Kiely) – A Missouri couple is facing criminal charges on a long list of sexual crimes straight out of “50 Shades of Grey”that landed their young “slave” in the hospital.
Marilyn and Edward Bagley of Lebanon, Missouri, are accused of holding a mentally disabled girl against her will and subjecting her to sexual torture, mutilation, piercing and even waterboarding.
According to The Washington Post, the couple claims that they lead a BDSM (Bondage/Domination/Sadism/Masochism) lifestyle and the girl’s participation was consensual.
Prosecutors counter that the couple groomed the girl from a young age to be their slave, drugged and held her captive, and had her pose for the cover of a fetish magazine and dance in strip clubs.
The case has raised concern within the BDSM community that law enforcement may become less tolerant of the fine line of consent between pleasure and pain.
