The Curious Case of the Kinky Dr. Beaton

21 07 2008

Ok, so Mr. Beaton isn’t a Dr.  Instead he is a disturbed psychologist who abused his patients trust, as well as making the kinky community look bad. I found it via the West, and Australian news site.

A former Fremantle psychologist who used bondage and discipline role-playing to treat a 22-year-old bulimic woman has been ordered to see a psychiatrist after arguing he should not face disciplinary proceedings because he had post traumatic stress disorder since being cleared of sexually assaulting the client.

Bruce Alistair Beaton was acquitted last year of unlawful and indecent assault, and aggravated sexual penetration of the young woman, who also claimed the psychologist whipped her with a homemade cat-o’-nine-tails while treating her between January and March 2005.

During Mr Beaton’s highly publicised trial, the District Court was shown hidden camera recordings in which the then-64-year-old called the woman his “submissive”, describing her as “delicious” and telling her he was going to “enjoy” her and “have a taste” of her. The woman, who wore a dog collar in the footage, was told to “kneel” before reading an oath pledging her body and mind to her “master”.

It is very sad that this reenforces the steriotypes that people have of us in the Lifestyle.  What do you all think?  Let me know in the comments.
