Outside the house in Darlington, Yorkshire (right) looks like a boringly normal suburban dwelling. Inside it is the home of the 'Kaotians' a sex-slave cult based in the north of England with over 350 members.
The 'Kaotians' are a break away 'sub-cult' of the Goreans who base their beliefs on the 'Chronicles of Gor', a series of novels which depict a society where women are dominated, written by American university professor John Norman. There are 25,000 Goreans worldwide who connect with each other on the internet.
The BBC is reporting that police have raided an address in Darlington, Yorkshire (why is it always Yorkshire?), to 'save' a Canadian woman who they thought was being held against her will. They found she was there voluntarily - although she had burnt her passport and return ticket to Canada!
The BBC interviewed Lee Thompson, 31, the "master" who trains the slaves at the Darlington address.
"We're just a group of people that live a different lifestyle, I mean there's nothing wrong with that," he told BBC News. "We don't hurt anyone, we don't damage anyone, everyone's consensual."
"But the majority of women in our organisation are obviously slaves because women have a submissive streak in them."
And we thought the 'Da Vinci Code' was cracked .... when is the next meeting?
• Lee Thompson has told the Northern Echo newspaper that he formed the breakaway Kaotians because the Gorean masters were too harsh on their female slaves. He says Kaotians are more gentle and says he does not believe in hurting "his girls".
Lee told the Echo: "A sad slave is no good at all. I treat them like diamonds."
• The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Mr Thompson, has been banned from one shop in the town for turning up with a girl on a leash.
