The Castration Carport

March 20th, 2007 | researchmaterial

Three men accused of operating what police described as a sadomasochistic “dungeon” that included castrations have been sentenced to jail time.

Prosecutors said the men ran a sadomasochistic “dungeon” fashioned from an enclosed carport in 2004 and 2005 at a house in a quiet neighborhood near Waynesville in western North Carolina. Six men, some from as far away as South America, came to the home for castration…

  1. As long as it keeps them off the streets, I’m all for it.

  2. Do we really want damaged people like this breeding anyway?
    Seems to me they’re doing a civil service.

  3. yet one more WNC news item that improves on the reputation of the area. As someone who lives in this area it just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Contradictions abound in this area of WNC from neo-hippie trustafarian types to rednecks. Also not far from Waynesville is Asheville home of the Fringe Fest. “Asheville pops up on national rankings for a variety of things: Modern Maturity named it one of “The 50 Most Alive Places To Be,” AmericanStyle Magazine called it one of “America’s Top 25 Arts Destinations,” Self Magazine labeled it the “Happiest City for Women,” it is one of AARP Magazine’s “Best Places to Reinvent Your Life,” and was proclaimed the “New Freak Capital of the U.S.” by Rolling Stone. Asheville has also been called “a New Age Mecca” by CBS News’ Eye On America, and named the “most vegetarian-friendly” small city in America. (wikipedia snip) These are truly interesting times we live in.

  4. Maybe Eric Raymond (ESR) can go there:

  5. Volunteering for castration, eh?

    I guess that takes balls…

  6. I don’t get the attraction, but why should this be seen as any more – or less – offensive than say, breast enhancement (or perhaps more accurately reduction), nose jobs, Botox, or any other kind of plastic surgery?

    Or is it just because these entrepreneurs don’t have a licence that qualifies them to engage in medical procedures?
