    I run a company that stages consensual white collar crime. Just send me your credit card details and I’ll take care of everything for you.

    The snippet of Jeff Schilling’s email at the end is orders of magnitude more interesting than the rest of the article. If the editor had any sense, fake kidnappings would have been a footnote to an interview with Schilling instead of the other way around.

    This is just depraved. With people around the world being kidnapped for real on a daily basis by narcos, terrorists and thugs, and some of them not living to tell the tale, I don’t find the “game” of kidnapping to be entertaining, nor do I want to read an article about it. Wired long ago lost its credibility, but this is a new low.

    No thanks.

    I’ve got a mail-order humiliation service. Send me $7500 US and I’ll send you a mason jar of pee for you to pour on yourself.

    • Gilbert Wham says:

       Well, you probably need to work on the marketing and PR a bit there, polish it up and so forth, but that sounds like a perfectly viable enterprise.

    • SomeGuyNamedMark says:

      For a few pounds you can get abuse

    • awjt says:

      Watch out for the competition.  For a low, low $5000, I will send just the empty mason jar and instructions, so the savvy client can self-humiliate in the privacy of their own home.

      • Donald Petersen says:

        “The savvy client”?  Naw, know your audience, man.  “That level of service is all you deserve, you lowly slug, you.  You need to earn my pee and until then, all you get is your own.”

    • UnderachievingSheep says:

      For real (I swear): I saw an ad in a Dutch site advertising the services of a “Financial dominatrix”. Apparently, over Skype, she would humiliate the client and tell him how worthless he was, etc, and he would eventually render control of his finances to her.
      For the life of me, I cannot figure out who would even consider her offer…

        I’ve seen that there’s a large number of hypnodommes who basically wrap men around their fingers.  They often have big ecommerce sections on their sites where their subs can buy gifts for their mistress.
        I just find it baffling that anybody would willingly hand over that much control to another person, even allowing them to reshape their thinking, memories and personality.
        It’s generally true that hypnosis can’t directly make one do something they wouldn’t normally do, but it can be used to alter the subject’s perceptions of the situations they’re in.  By changing what situation someone thinks they’re in, it can be relatively easy to convince them into doing and believing things they normally wouldn’t.
        But I also have longstanding trust issues, so there’s definitely a large bias in my feelings towards S&M and related kinks.

        • blueelm says:

          I know some one who did this from the other side, buying things for a woman he even openly said was an annoying drug addict who literally he just bought things for so she could abuse him. Not, like, in a frustrated-with-his-girlfriend way, but actually that was her role.

          I always wonder how the hell to break into that racket. 

          I’m kind of stuck on the other side of things somehow–. except not intentionally (to the point where if some one shows interest in me in any way anymore I start to immediately fear them because… luck has *not* been my lady).

          • ldobe says:

            Wrt hypno, it’s all just conditioning I think.  It seems these guys are looking for mindblowing experiences, and don’t realize that they’re completely handing over the keys to their heads to someone else.  They think it’ll be like a vivid dream or a movie, when really it’s giving someone else root access.  Once they’re in, they’re conditioned to come back, and eventually, these dommes have them totally under control using post hypnotic suggestions.  And of course they insist it’s their own free will, but that’s not really relevant anymore, since their will now is so influenced by the domme, and the domme convinces them that they’re happy to play along.

    I’m confident that the vast majority of their clientele derives sexual gratification from the experience. 

  7. JustAdComics says:

    Seriously, that’s just messed up. How about consensual muggings? Consensual car-jackings? Consensual drive-by-shootings? (fear not, only flesh wounds will be administered by our crack team of expert marksmen!)

  8. JH says:

    People do all sorts of weird/random/extreme things for fun. It’s really not worth getting outraged about.

  9. nathanroberts says:

    I’m just going to point out the truly alarming thing in the article:

    some clients forgo a safe word

  10. “and a reflective moment at the end where he compared his experience to
    that of a friend who was kidnapped and held by terrorists.”   Unless there was an actual possibility of his being killed, I’d say there was no comparison whatsoever.

    • chgoliz says:

      This was the key problem for me, too.  I have no problem with people doing whatever they want behind closed doors, but play-acting something like this and claiming it has any comparison to reality is an excellent example of First World Privilege.

      Hey! Maybe that’s what he says. Who knows, I didn’t read it, did you?

  11. bcsizemo says:

    terrorizing him to the best of their ability and within the confines of their prior agreement.

    The only agreement should be that you aren’t going to be killed or loose a body part.  Everything else should be fair game.  It’s a kidnapping, not a spa vacation.

  12. Miles Away says:

    I just lost the game.

  13. Enemy Mouse says:

    I don’t know, this is a bit like a consensual “Yelling fire in a public place” service. Someone is bound to get hurt.

  14. Things white people like: being kidnapped and tortured

  15. Wiki-Truths says:

    I had a nice friend who had some crazy friends. One day she mentioned in passing that she thought it would be fun to be kidnapped. Year later she still has nightmares of the time they bagged her head, bound her, and kept her in a closet for two days.
