My ex Psychopath left with no notice - a five minute warning after 7 years together. Afterwards I discovered that he was a hard core BDSM Dom with a hard drive full of movies of torture of women ( blindfolded, gagged, anonymous, shackled victims ) and extreme sadism and infliction of pain to their breasts and genitals. It has left me with a lot of fear and trauma to deal with it all. No Contact has helped with it.
I then found that he had also been grooming the 12 year old daughter of my friend - apparently with the idea of creating a pain slut sex slave because she was depressed and cutting herself. He did this for two years before he left. You can imagine the damage it has caused.....
Finally his adult adopted niece who they raised as a daughter from when she was seven, who has remained very close to me while shutting him out of her life to protect her and her own daughters, admitted he had asked her to masturbate him when she was 10. Luckily she was able to refuse but never felt able to tell anyone or feel safe with him again. Her birth father has done jail time for paedophilia....
Despite a mountain of evidence he has escaped with no actual arrest - but he is being watched by the police.
From what I can tell, his father and grandfather were both abusive men. When he was a teenager, the father shot his own father and hid the body and acted as if nothing had happened - a sure sign of no remorse or guilt.
I have read this thread with interest - I can relate to so much of it. I think the concept of their using people to masturbate too sums up mine - yes, it was all on in the beginning of course, but before long I was playing the role of housekeeper and breadwinner... he got his real thrills elsewhere.
It seems he feels he can have power and control and torture any one he sets his sights on - woman or girl and have no conscience about it. While hiding as a friendly funny intelligent victim.
I take some pleasure int he fact that I have thwarted and exposed him for the Narcissistic Psychopath that he is.
When you combine that with being a sadist, you get Ted Bundy and Fred West, so I am also relieved to still be here!
He sent a letter to his family after he left me - he defended his actions by saying that he chose me because I was so like his wife who died. He says when you lose a pet, a new one will distract you, so he chose a new mother for his 35 yr old daughter, and that he was never in love with me!
They really don't understand human emotions - he cared enough to want to stop his daughter hurting, but couldn't understand how inappropriate it was to manipulate me. Still, I did actually gain a lovely family that I adore and he lost it all.
I learned a lot and the pain will pass. I will respect myself and survive.
