NCSF Statement

on Friday, 06 November 2009. Hits 1152

Anthony Sowell has been arrested in Cleveland, Ohio, and is alleged to have murdered more than 11 women. The media is reporting that Sowell was registered on dating website, Alt.com, for those interested in alternative lifestyles. People who engage in BDSM and other alternative activities do so as consenting adults and in a safe, sane, and consensual manner. That Sowell might have used the BDSM community to prey on vulnerable and unsuspecting victims is abhorrent.

NCSF strongly condemns criminals who commit violence and engage in non-consensual activities. We encourage the media to remember that the large community of consenting adults who engage in BDSM activities should not be confused with Sowell's alleged crimes. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families and those in the neighborhood where Sowell lived.
