Even though the leaders of NXIVM are looking forward to jail, it doesn’t mean there are not others out there looking to take their best shot at being a se.x cult leader.
There is one out there who, from his various websites, looks like he has taken multiple approaches.
Rather than NXIVM’s route of motivation classes, this particular group are using theatre classes and workshops and experimental theatre and willingness to be nude in all of it to find their recruits. The wannabe leader of it appears to be one of those people who probably talks about his craft all the time and is a jack of all trades in the theatre business to talk a lot of talk.
For sure, he is not shy about telling even dates he meets online about his desire to be a se.x cult leader.
He brags about random oral se.x he gets from recruits and how he gets rich people to invest in his crazy theatre ideas while he pockets most of it and uses the rest to make avant-garde theatre crap with his recruits.
Did I mention he is bff with a celebrity psychologist/hypnotist.
Sounds like that good come in handy for the se.x cult.
James Franco’s Acting Students Allege Se.xual Exploitation
Two former students of James Franco’s now-closed acting school filed a lawsuit Thursday alleging that the classes existed principally to create a way for Franco and his associates to take advantage of young women.
Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal filed the class action complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court, saying that Franco and his partners “engaged in widespread inappropriate and se.xually charged behavior towards female students by se.xualizing their power as a teacher and an employer by dangling the opportunity for roles in their projects.”
Franco and his business partner Vince Jolivette opened the Studio 4 school in 2014, with branches in New York and Los Angeles.
The suit alleges that the students paid $300 a month, thinking they were participating in a bona fide acting school. Instead, the women claim they were intimidated and se.xually objectified, and found that those who were willing to disrobe in front of Franco and his friends were afforded special treatment.
“As Plaintiffs experienced and observed, Studio 4 served no other legitimate purposes other than to dupe unsuspecting and often very young ‘students’ out of their money and talent to serve Defendants’ financial and exploitative desires,” the suit states.
As part of the school, Franco taught a “master class” on se.x scenes, according to the complaint. In auditions for the master classes, the students were pressured to engage in se.xual activity that went well beyond the industry norm, the plaintiffs allege. The auditions were taped, and Franco would review the tapes to see who would be allowed into the class. – Source
