Marius Gustavson, 45, along with eight others, is alleged to have performed extreme body modifications, including the removal of penises and testicles.
Gustavson, who is originally from Norway, is said to have been the ringleader in a wide-ranging conspiracy, involving up to 29 offences of extreme body modifications, the removal of body parts, the trade in body parts and the uploading of videos....they'd have let you do it on kiddies, too!
A total of nine men appeared in courts in central London and Wales on Wednesday over the alleged six-year plot, which is said to have brought in about £200,000 in income.Amateurs! Bet the Tavistock made a lot more than that, and all legally too. There's money in this!
All of the alleged victims are said to have been part of a society in which people willingly undergo extreme body modification.
If you're shaking your head right now at the absurdity of this, you aren't the only one...
