DOJ’s View of NXIVM #7: Sex Trafficked Slave – Nicole

Not a true picture of Nicole whose last name is being withheld for her protection and to aid in her healing from her contact with Keith Alan Raniere.

More of the government’s view of NXIVM:

Nicole, an actress in her early 30s, began taking Nxivm classes in 2015, including acting classes with Allison Mack. In February 2016, Mack invited Nicole to join a “women’s mentorship group,” but asked that Nicole first provide collateral.

At the time, Nicole was living in Brooklyn, New York. Nicole was told, and believed, that the organization was women-only and had no connection to Nxivm. After Mack told Nicole what would constitute sufficient collateral, Nicole wrote a
series of letters falsely alleging sexual abuse by a family member and other damaging allegations.

Allison Mack is now serving her sentence in Dublin Correctional Facility in California,  Sketch MK10ART.

After Mack assured Nicole that the letters would be “locked in a box” where nobody could see them, Nicole provided the letters and a sexually explicit video of herself to Mack.

Once Nicole had provided this collateral, Mack told Nicole about DOS, referring to it as “the Vow.” Nicole agreed to become Mack’s DOS “slave.”

When Nicole agreed to join DOS, she was not aware and was not told that she would later be required to provide additional collateral. Nicole was later required to provide, and did provide, additional collateral on a monthly basis, including credit card authorizations and the right to her grandmother’s wedding ring.

Mack directed Nicole to be celibate for six months and subsequently assigned Nicole to contact Raniere. Mack
“assigned” Nicole to tell Raniere that she would do “whatever” he wanted her to do.

One night when Nicole was staying with Mack in Clifton Park, New York, Raniere called Mack. Mack told Nicole to go outside and meet Raniere, which Nicole did.

Raniere blindfolded Nicole, led her into a car and drove her to a house. Raniere then led Nicole, still blindfolded, through some trees and inside a building, where he ordered her to undress and tied her to a table. Another person in the room,
whose identity was not known to Nicole, began performing oral sex on her. The individual who performed oral sex on Nicole was Camila, one of Raniere’s First Line “slaves,” and the sexual abuse took place at 120 Victory Way.

Raniere asked if Nicole was ok, told her that she was “very brave” and directed her not to tell anyone what had happened.

Nicole testified that she believed that if she left DOS or broke her commitment, her collateral would be released.

Nicole and Raniere eventually had additional sexual encounters. At one point, after Nicole told Raniere that she was having significant financial difficulties as a result of being a DOS “slave,” Raniere, exasperated, pulled out a “plastic bag with $10,000 in it” and gave it to Nicole.  Nicole used some of the money for various expenses related to Nxivm and DOS.

Throughout Nicole’s time in DOS, Mack regularly required her “slaves” to pose for nude photographs, including close-up photographs of their vaginas, either as assignments or as collateral.

Mack sent the photographs to Raniere. As a DOS “slave,” Nicole also performed uncompensated labor, including, among other things, hours of editing work.

Many of these trafficked girls went to politicians, law enforcement people, film directors and actors, photographers, musicians, business people, and other sex cults or people like maxwell and rkelly. The guilty parties are all the powerful people in America who weren’t actually nxivm members, but people requesting sexual benefits from nxivm.

Not just the ones publicly listed in court documents, but other girls were given out to influential people as payoff to get ESP immunity….

Rich, you are hinting that you know facts and details, but when asked to clarify you remain vague. If you can’t supply names or other facts and say what your sources are, then you are just repeating unsubstantiated rumors…in other words, bullshit.

You know, folks, when it smells like shit, it must be because it’s shit: It’s clear that they would take advantage of everything they had on their hands. Part of the main goals of NXIVM was to bring sexual gratification and money to some. Why ask for proof when you just have to imagine the worst? In the sex cult’s circles of hell, the more you’re in the inner layers of the onion, the closer you are to the Power with a capital “P”, weird sex and big money. Why would it be different with NXIVM? When a cult collapses, what happens to the cult members they are too close to the inner layers to leave when the reality is revealed, but too far from it to witness the worst? I wonder how hard it is for the ones who were still on their cult “honeymoon” when it collapsed… Seduced, in the process of changing their life forever because of a deep change of meaning in it, when the bells toll for what is revealed to be a destructive cult… I truly feel for them, as I have an idea of how hard it must be. The candle that brings light in this kind of darkness is one’s feelings and intuition. Deep self-forgiveness is the compass that helps to get out from the darkness. That’s my own opinion.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
