Smallville star ‘second in command’ of sinister sex cult

Cape Town - A Hollywood actress has been accused of being a high-ranking member of a sex cult.

Daily Mail was the first to make the name of the star public, and she’s been identified as Allison Mack, who played Clark Kent's sidekick Chloe Sullivan on the series Smallville.

News of the sex cult first broke last month, when The New York Times reported that women were lured to the secret society, put on extreme diets and beaten if they didn’t recruit enough ‘slaves’.

The group is an underworld assembly called DOS (dominus obsequious sororium, Latin for ‘master over the slave women’) within a larger organisation called Nxivm (pronounced Nex-e-um).

According to the article, the women are forced to submit damning personal information – like nude images, for example – before they’re allowed to join.

The organisation then uses this personal information as guarantee that the women won’t leave and divulge any details, else their information will be released to the public.

A former spokesperson of the group, Frank Parlato, initially told The Sun that an “Emmy-winning Hollywood actress is a key recruiter to the cult and has several ‘slave pods’ of around six women each”.

But it wasn’t until later that Daily Mail made the name of the actress public.

Slaves are reportedly encouraged to recruit more women to form slave pods and serve below them. This is how somewhat of a power pyramid gets created.

The women are then encouraged to stop dating and should be available to their master 24/7.

If they do not adhere to the rules above, the women are beaten with paddles, The Sun reports. 

Women are lured with the idea that they’re entering a sisterhood, where they’ll inspire and empower each other.

Nxivm, the larger organisation which DOS stems from, has been in business since the late 90s. It’s hosted countless life courses and while most people just enter a workshop or two, others are sucked in deeper with little chance of escape.

Nxivm reportedly encourages participants to give up their career, friends and family and follow its sinister leader, Keith Raniere (57).

According to ex-members, only loyal followers of the group are offered the chance to try out for DOS.

Sarah Edmondson, once a member of DOS, told The New York Times of how she had to receive a small tattoo as part of the initiation.

The tattoo is said to be a symbol of Raniere and Mack’s initials.

Edmondson explains that each woman was asked to undress and lie on a massage table. The woman’s legs and shoulders were then held down while the woman was instructed to say, “Master, please brand me, it would be an honour.”

A doctor then branded the symbol below each woman’s hip.        

Edmondson revealed that each procedure took 20-30 minutes and muffled screams could be heard for hours as the smell of burning tissue lingered in the room.

“I wept the whole time,” Ms. Edmondson told TNYT.

“I disassociated out of my body.”

When Daily Mail contacted Mack’s camp for comment, they were told 'she is not taking press inquiries at the time'.

NXIVM previously released a statement saying: “The allegations relayed in the story are built upon sources, some of which are under criminal investigation or already indicted, who act as a coordinated group. We will explore any and all legal remedies to correct these lies.”
