The Berlin Courier – like so many other media outlets around the world – has picked up the story of the branding sex cult called NXIVM.

Attempts to put an end to the cult have, thus far, been unsuccessful: As ex-member Sarah Edmondson and two other women reported for “NXIVM” methods, the authorities stopped the investigation shortly thereafter. Reason: Everything happened on a voluntary basis …
