Lee Thompson’s followers lead a sadomasochistic lifestyle inspired by a series of 1960s fantasy novels, Chronicles of Gor.
In the books, written by US college professor John Norman, women are viewed as natural slaves to men.
At Teesside Crown Court, Thompson – who describes himself as a pagan
– admitted two counts of procuring a woman to have sexual intercourse.
Lee Thompson, from Darlington, and his slave “Angel” are part of an unusual sect called the Kaotians, who base their lives on the science fiction novels of John Norman.
A television showdown has taken place between a sex slave master and the father of his apprentice. Following the revelation in The Northern Echo that Lee Thompson, from Darlington, is a master in the Kaotians sect, he has been inundated with TV offers. Yesterday, Mr Thompson and his 18-year-old apprentice, , appeared on the Trisha Goddard Show on Channel 5. Called “I’ve left my family…to join a cult“, the show attempted to reconcile with his father, Tony. But from the outset, the attempt seemed doomed to failure as security guards had to separate Mr
A slave “master” was last night at the centre of a media storm, talking to Sunday newspapers about his revelations as his claims became ever more lurid. Lee Thompson, from Darlington, now says he has a criminal record for sexual offences and even says he enjoyed a master-slave sexual relationship with infamous child-killer Beverley Allitt. National and international media organisations descended on the doorstep of Lee Thompson, 31, after he told The Northern Echo he trained women as willing slaves for his sexual pleasure as part of mysterious science-fiction sect the Kaotians, based on a series of novels published from
A sex slavery cult based on a series of 1960s science fiction novels has been uncovered by police in Darlington. Durham Police discovered the bizarre sect after raiding a home in the area, after receiving complaints that a woman was being held against her will. But a spokesman said the Canadian was a willing participant and the other people involved were consenting adults. The group, called Kaotians, follow the Chronicles of Gor novels which depict a society where women are dominated. The 29-year-old woman is said to have voluntarily attended the sect after finding out about it over the internet.
We appreciate the fact that no laws appear to have been broken by the strange sex slavery sect operating in the North-East and, therefore, police have no grounds to take any action. We do, however, believe that the activities taking place at a house in Darlington are a matter of serious public concern. The vast majority of people will find the idea of women being encouraged into degrading sex slavery as extremely disturbing. It is right to emphasise that no one is being kept at the house against their will and that, by and large, what goes on within the
Police insisted last night they are powerless to act against a bizarre sex slavery sect operating in the NorthEast. An investigation by The Northern Echo has uncovered evidence that more than 350 people in the region may be engaged in consensual slavery rituals based on a series of science fiction novels dating from the 1960s. But last night, police said they had discontinued their investigation despite uncovering a house in Darlington that belongs to a member of the Kaotians sect. The Northern Echo understands officers raided the property in Forster Street last month after receiving a call from the US,
Slavery, bondage and science-fiction seem far removed from a pebble-dashed North-East house. But an investigation by The Northern Echo has revealed a secretive sub-culture inspired by fantasy novels. OLIVIA RICHWALD and DAVID ROBERTS report Lee Thompson has been banned from his favourite butcher’s shop for dropping by with a girl on a leash. He’s upset because it serves the best bacon in Darlington and his friend on the lead had volunteered to be his slave. Mr Thompson, 31, is a Kaotian – a splinter-group of the Goreans – a shadowy sect that practises slavery, inspired by the Gor fantasy novels
Police are investigating a bizarre sex slavery sect which is thought to be operating in a Durham suburb, whose members model their relationships on a series of 1960s science fiction novels in which women are dominated. Durham Police confirmed they had raided an address in Darlington amid complaints that a woman was being held against her will, but a spokesman said the Canadian was a willing participant and they had no grounds to act against the so-called Kaotians sect. It is understood the 29-year-old had voluntarily attended the sect after an internet chat, but later contacted a friend in America,
