men arrested for performing castrations

Victims willingly participated in sadomasochistic rituals.

Last week three men in Waynesville, N.C., were arrested and charged with felony castration, maiming without malice, and practicing medicine without a license after local authorities discovered they were operating a sadomasochistic dungeon in their home. In what may be the first case of its kind in the state, the men, apparently lovers, performed castration surgeries on at least six men they initially met online, reports the Asheville Citizen-Times. According to investigators, the victims, who were castrated willingly, participated in the surgeries, which occurred between June 2004 and November 2005. The local sheriff's office first became aware of events at the house last year when they came across a Web site with images of the men engaging in sadomasochistic acts, which, if consensual, are not illegal. But last week the district attorney received a tip that castration was also taking place at the house, so he obtained a search warrant and found the gruesome evidence of the amateur surgeries. Two of the three men arrested worked at Harrah's Cherokee Casino on the nearby Cherokee Indian Reservation. They are each being held on a $150,000 bond. (The Advocate)
