The Sex Toys Allison Mack and Her Threesome Partner, Dani Padilla Bought to Please Their Master Keith Raniere– Part 1

As we continue our study of the Nxivm sex cult and await the sentencing of six Nxivm defendants, it seems appropriate to look at the kinkier side of the cult.

Sex cult leader Keith Alan Raniere – his top lieutenant, Seagram’s heiress Clare Webb Bronfman – his minions, Nancy Salzman, Lauren Salzman, and Kathy Russell – and his top slave, former actress Allison Mack – all will be sentenced sometime in the near future. All of them will most likely spend time in prison, with Raniere possibly going away for life.

In this post, we will review the testimony of Sean Welch in the trial of Keith Alan Raniere.

Welch is the Chief Technology Officer for XR LLC, an online sex toy store.

The DOS slaves, led by Allison Mack and seven other women, had a veritable buying frenzy of sex toys for use in their sex cult, DOS, an all-female group except for one – the ultimate slave master, a man – Keith Alan Raniere.

The slaves of Raniere seemed to have had a craving for bondage toys. The female slave that headed up the purchases of sex toys was Daniela Padilla, who was Allison’s three-some sex partner.

The three of them – Raniere, Mack and Padilla – often joined in early morning sex romps.

As the DOS group progressed and gathered more sex slaves, the leaders seemed to want to get increasingly into bondage.

It seems the toys were purchased not only for kinky sex but also to punish slaves who were disobedient.

We have no photograph of  Welch. The closest we have is this courtroom sketch.

 

Q   Good morning, Mr. Welch. By whom are you employed?

A   XR LLC.

Q   What is your position?

***

A   Chief Technology Officer.

Q   What are your day to day responsibilities at XR LLC?

A   Maintain the websites and the overall operations when it comes to systems.

Q   How long have you been with XR LLC?

A   Over 13 years.

***

Q   Pursuant to [a] subpoena, did you provide the Government with documents related to purchases by Daniela Padilla or Daniela Bergeron?

A   Yes.

Keith Raniere walking with his DOS slave, Dani Padilla, possibly discussing what sex toys to buy.

***

[Penza hands Welch some exhibits, which were the billing receipts for the sex toys and pictures of the items she purchased.]

Q   Mr. Welch, is it fair to say that these exhibits relate to two different orders?

A   Yes.

Q   And what are the dates of the two different orders?

A   The first order is 5/26/2017.

Q   And the second order?

A   5/28/2017.

Q   So let’s look at the 5/26/2017 order first….  can you explain what this document is?

A   This is a copy of the sales order invoice…

Q [The purchaser is] Daniela [Padilla] Bergeron, 8 Raleigh Drive, Halfmoon, New York, 12065; is that correct?

A  That’s correct.

***

Q   Then let’s go through the invoice. The first item is this first number, here what does that number represent?

A    That’s our SKU number that we have in our system.

Q  So the first item number is the remote puppy trainer; is that right?

A     Yes, that’s correct.

 

Puppy trainers are not actually used for canines but for sex slaves – like Allison Mack

Q  Are there a lot of products — a number of products on the Extreme Restraint website that talk about puppies?

A   Yes.

Q   Are those items meant for animals?

A   No.

Q  They are meant for people?

A  Yes.

Q    Going to the next item, is that the item number AC892?

A     Yes.

Q    That’s a studded rubber paddle?

A    Yes.

 

Q   The next one, item AD743?

A             Yes.

Q            That’s the MS hanging rubber strap cage?

A             Yes.

 

Yes, that’s a person in there. This rubber strap cage offers a unique way to keep your slave encased and restrained. With this rubber strap cage, your slave steps onto a platform base and becomes surrounded with durable rubber straps.

Q     Item number four, AE306, the heavy-duty suspension bar kit?

A     Yes.

 

Q            Income number five, AE991, the 3.5-inch ankle shackle mounts pair?

A             Yes.

Q            That comes two to a set?

A             Yes.

Q            Turning to the next page, item six, AE916; is that correct?

A             Yes.

Q            That says ST thigh sling with wrist cuffs?

A             Yes.

 

Q            AF199, MS subdued full-body strap set?

A             Yes.

Q            Then the rest of the items on here, are those actually items that were purchased?

A             No. They are free samples that we provide for customers and then the free charges.

Q            I’d like you now to look at the second set of the second group of exhibits that I handed you, which have been marked for identification as 855, 856, 857, 858, 859, 860, and 861.

A   Okay.

Q   Do you see all of those?

A   Yes.

Q   Are you familiar with those?

A   Yes.

Q   Can you describe generally what those are?

A   These are the product descriptions on our websites.

Q   Matching the items that we just looked at?

A   Yes.

Q   Do these fairly and accurately represent the items as depicted on your website?

A   Yes.

***

Q   I’m going to start with Government’s Exhibit 855. Is this the remote shock puppy trainer?

A   Yes.

Q   It costs $159?

A   Yes.

Q   How is that meant to be worn?

A   Around the neck.

The puppy trainer is worn around the neck. No that is not a Society of Protectors member, but just a model for the company that sells the item.

***

Q   So turning to the next page can you read the details, please?

A   “Train your pet to obey every command. The new and improved deluxe dog trainer is the smallest, lightest training collar on the market, just 2.4 ounces, perfect for puppy play or naughty slaves. This wicked device allows you to you teach them a quick lesson in tone, vibration and 15 levels of static stimulation. Simply turn the knob to the level of correction you want and press the bottom. Device creates a sound each time shock is emitted for training purposes. The second button will emit the same tone, but no shock, to warn your bad puppy that a shock may be coming if they keep it up. With a range of up to 100 yards, you can even punish your plaything from afar. Both the remote and collar are fully rechargeable for your convenience and even waterproof so they never have to be taken off, even in the shower. No external antenna is needed to keep your pup in line.”

***

Q   Then the studded rubber paddle?

A   Yes…..

Q. It costs 35.95?

A   Yes.

Q   Going to the third item… the hanging rubber strap cage?

A   Yes.

Q   That costs $299.95?

A   Yes.

***

Q   Can you read the details for this, please?

A   “This rubber strap cage offers a unique way to keep your partner encased and restrained. With this rubber strap cage, your partner steps onto a platform base and becomes surrounded with durable rubber straps. The straps are designed in a downward, crisscross pattern. The body-weight pulls down the cage bringing the straps in closer to them and keeping them at bay. Think Chinese finger trap when figuring out how this product will work in your next round of bondage play.”

Q   Do you know what a Chinese finger trap is?

A   Yes.

Q   Can you describe it?

A   It’s where you stick your finger in and the tighter you pull it, the tighter the cuffs hold you.

Chinese finger trap.

Q   Then can you read the specs and benefits [for the hanging rubber strap cage]?

A   “Side cage measures 75 inches in total length. Base and top ring measure 12-inches in diameter. Material: Rubber, metal, wood. Color: Black. Your partner’s body-weight pulls on the cage restraining them. The straps are designed in a crisscross pattern. Note please, follow proper installation and consider the weight-bearing capability of your installation. We would advise installing this item in a beam. These products, as well all products on this site, are supplied as is. No warranty is given, either implied or expressed. Products are intended as novelty only. No representation is made or applied as to their suitability or safety for any particular use. Purchasers use the products entirely at their own risk.”

 

From head to toe, the cage is just the right item for Allison Mack and other sex slaves.

 

No, the model is not Keith Raniere

 

Please don’t try this at home.

 

A very snug fit —

Q   That’s enough on that. Does that warning appear on all of the items on the website?

A   Not all of the items.

Q   Why does it appear on some?

A   I’m not sure.

 

Here is the picture that the government is using of Raniere as exhibit 46.

 

Actual receipt of the sex toys purchased by Dani Padilla BergeronAnd just think – in the end these women would get to be restrained by Raniere. Here is what they got in return:

In conformity with Fair Publishing Guidelines, the following warning is required:

These lucky slaves got the grand prize – their grand-master – Keith Alan Raniere.

  • Since this dungeon bullshit started 1 and a half years later than DOS was first created under false pretenses by Raniere, the women didn’t really have the chance to escape from participating; they were coerced. But they most likely could not even realize it. All the women who joined believed this was something good and empowering and that’s why they got in others. Nobody could have known about this back then.

    • Frank never said all NXIVM members were bad people. Contrary to what the Trolls say

      Frank has always maintained that the vast majority of NXIVM members were well-intentioned.

      Clearly, I don’t speak for Frank. I have been following this blog for almost 2 years. I believe I have a fairly good idea of what Frank writes and what he believes.

      I don’t agree with everything Frank writes, and what I love about the Frank Report is the fact Frank gives all sides a voice.

      The Frank Report is not an “echo chamber”.

  • “All of them will most likely spend time in prison”
    Get a life or get a brain…

    “The DOS slaves, led by Allison Mack and seven other women, had a veritable buying frenzy of sex toys for use in their sex cult, DOS, an all-female group except for one – the ultimate slave master, a man – Keith Alan Raniere.”
    you fkin idiot…this was clearly debunked in court but you have to bring lies in your stories…
    She was not leading anyone ,she was receiving orders…you must be the biggest idiot and liar to actually cite the trial that proved she wasn’t leader or anything you claim her to be…

    “Daniela Padilla, who was Allison’s three-some sex partner”
    Reinvente the truth yet again…
    No , Dani was one of the lead , Raniere FORCED Allison to participate A three some…
    The mail is clear and Allison was not willingly doing it but whatever you say you pervert.

    Also The guy you cited never cited ONCE Allison , only Dani but you have to drag Allison in your lies…

    Be carefull franky, this is ,again defamation and you are posting the proof of your own lies!

    In the other hands, you are just showing (since it’s an obvious lie not backed by ANYTHING since she has not been cited for anything you pretend she is connected to) how much of a sick dirty pervert…
    I’m sure you had fun with these kind of tools yourself which explain your obsession about anything sexual linked to this cult but ignore the REAL FACTS behind your fantasy…

    • Allison was more than a mere slave. She was a slave master with a pod of slaves. However, I do think she was indoctrinated by Raniere. Too bad she did not get out early. It cost her everything.

    • Only Raniere was on trial. I wish all of them had been on trial, because we would know a lot more about all of them. All but Raniere’s lawyers convinced the defendants that going to trial would end worse than pleading guilty to some of the charges. Raniere figured he would outsmart the DOJ and/or had nothing to lose by going to court because the DOJ wasn’t offering him much of a plea deal prior to the trial. LOL

    • Anonymous 11:16am-

      Your insults are unimaginative.

      Calling Frank “Franky”, while being a wee-bit derogatory and disrespectful is not actually insulting or hurtful.

      I’d help you out if it weren’t for the fact I like Frank.

      I have read Allison Mack’s emails between herself and Dani “the man” Padilla. She talks of such things as “I can still smell both your scents on me”, I want what she was referencing.

      Next time you comment I’ll go the vile things she said to her slaves.

      Let’s see what you say then. 🙂

    • Shadow, you’re more of a dirty rat bastard than I am. Looking for bondage stores before you go to Mack’s houz?

    • For sharing what was shared in court? People’s tax dollar paid for this trial. I think the public deserves to know what happened. Especially when we think that your taxes will also pay to keep these individuals locked away. We have a right to know.

  • What sex toys did Allison Mack buy? Answer: NONE! How does Frank Parlato know that the women wanted this? He doesn’t because none of them talked to him. Lauren Salzman even said she was scared of getting locked in a cage. How does Frank Parlato know that Allison Mack liked to engage in threesomes? He doesn’t because Allison herself wrote in a letter that she had a hard time with this lifestyle! What does this article tell me? That Frank Parlato is a sick asshole that makes up stories and exploits other people’s abuse for his own benefit! When these women finally are allowed to talk, you will go down.

    • Maybe if there were more women as disgusting, sick, and depraved as the men creating cults, you would be marveling at how stupid some men were to keep falling for it over and over again.

      If Allison had gone and created her own cult ,she might have been lucky enough to have had Omar, Shadow, and you know who, lapping at her feet, hanging around message boards and blogs, disparaging, threatening, and defaming her enemies and any rivals, while luring in strapping young men to pleasure, protect, and provide for her. Granted with Omar and Shadow doing the luring, it would be a struggle to attract worthy males at first, but it took Keith some 50 years before he was able to upgrade to the likes of Nicki, Allison, and India. To help things along, Allison could have created The Phorce, an acting intensive designed just for virile young wannabe male actors, with real hands on experience.

      As it was, according to Edmondson, her husband, one of the SOP leaders, was able to recruit 150 men into the misogynistic program, while Mexico celebrated having some 120 male participants. Since the male members of NXIVM seldom receive any of the same sort of love on here as the women, here are just some of those that were, maybe some still are, involved with the sex cult:

      Emiliano Salinas, Alex Betancourt, Mark Vicente, Anthony N Ames, Mark Hildreth, Brandon Porter, Michel Chernitzky, Edgar Boone, Omar Boone, Benjamin Myers, Steven T Ose, Luis Montes Gutierrez, Juan Lopez de Silanes Blanco, James J Del Negro, Brian S.

      • I don’t know who “you know who” is. Could it be Sultan? He’s taken…by Kristin Crook(ed). LOL

      • “Maybe if there were more women as disgusting, sick, and depraved as the men creating cults, you would be marveling at how stupid some men were to keep falling for it over and over again.”

        If “ifs and buts were candy and nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas”. Why do women need to start cults to be just as depraved as their leaders when they enable them just as well? These women believed all the hot air he was blowing and were outright deceiving other women for this scrub. They didn’t accidentally trip, have their panties fly off by themselves, only to unknowingly find their vaginas had made a perfect landing onto his dick. People find solidarity in similarity. We are talking about how it is, not how it could be.

      • Duh, their lawyers advised them not to. And they do talk indirectly. You just have to pay attention. Shadow knows what I mean 😉

  • After so much talk of feminism, equal education, opportunity, pay, etc., it’s mind-boggling to me how stupid some women still present themselves to be. We’ve heard it over and over again, how men have abused religion (especially this), positions of power, wealth, etc., for sexual opportunity, and yet, women just keep falling for it over and over again. It’s particularly unfathomable in this case because this Raniere guy was already late to the party as people were calling it cult as early as 2003 in well known magazines like Forbes before these people even joined. I don’t mean to sound sexist, but I’ve read that women outnumber men in membership to these male-led groups 3-2, some say as high as 3-1, and the women presented here aren’t helping to contradict those stats.

  • Padilla is the only one who bought the toys and how do you know that these women wanted to participate in this? It’s more like they were abused into it. But you still don’t understand it. I think I’m gonna write to Allison’s lawyer, maybe then you’ll finally wake up. You and Keith have a lot in common, you’re just as despicable as him and you are certainly not a hero!

    • How do you know they didn’t have a meeting to decide what to buy and the women didn’t want to participate? LOL

      • Because people who have been put through a thought reform program like these women were are not capable to make decisions for themselves even if they think they do and it may look like it to the outside, the decision-maker about everything is KR. This is a basic fact you learn in every good book from any cult expert. The followers have to prove their loyalty to the leader by participating in it@ and who disobeys will get punishment. When you don’t take part in it your weak and unworthy. That has been done by many cult leaders but Raniere is more sadistic than others.

        • How do you know they were not capable of making decisions for themselves? Because they were helpless little women? LOL

          What is this, 2020 or the 1800s? LOL

          Also, you didn’t answer my questions. LOL

          • According to your own, ask. How do we know that the women in DOS did not want to participate voluntarily in all the activities that resulted in accusations of crimes. It is all based on what the victims were persuaded to accept under lies and deceit. But since Keith deceived and lied to all of them by leading men. Otherwise, I find no reason why there is this need to obsess over allison mack she was only one of 8 women in the first line in DOS, nor do I see her as the successor of pam cafritz, pam was one of her longest-running enablers and undoubtedly the most trusted, something that allison never got to Being there is not even evidence that she was more confident than Lauren, she was undoubtedly a volunteer in the entire DOS plan, but I do not see that her role has been more prominent than that of other slave masters, but for better or worse the two informants that Frank had in DOS, belonged to the downline of allison and were these two slaves and their testimonies given first to Frank and then to the feds and later to court, along with the fact that india oxenberg daughter of cat Herine Oxenberg was one of his slaves and of course Allison’s own fame, which ended up putting the spotlight on this story and its relationship with the cult, I wonder if these three women Nicole, Jay and India had
