And when I were a wee lad, there were rumours around Sydney of Troughman. I never saw him, but it was a good legend.

The quote from the festival one is great: On what compelled him to hide inside the porta potty: "I was at the yoga festival, doing a little bit of yoga, and I'm just seeing all these goddesses... It seems crazy, but I just felt like I was being blessed by their energy, even though it was unintentional."

Yes, blessed.

On, uh, his... spiritual beliefs, and the, I guess, exercise thereof (?): "I'll be honest, it was a lifestyle that I was living... just by choice trying to find my private way to exercise my spiritual beliefs. I made a vow to myself...that I never wanted to frighten any girl. I would rather put a gun to my head than scare anyone or hurt anyone. That's how I live my life."

While this is surreal, hilarious and disgusting in equal parts and my immediate reaction was an incredulous "why not just stick to porn?" this answer of Skye's seems unintentionally revealing. I've read that sexual predators usually start out along a predictable path: watching more and more explicit porn, then finally when that's not enough, moving on to peeping, and when that's not enough, flashing, and then it escalates from there. Not to uh, harsh anyone's mellow. Dude seems mentally ill and I hope he gets help.

From the interview:

"I was tryin' to be a pimp and all. You know, I believe like sometimes people aren't too good at meeting each other, and I was trying to help people meet each other, you know, in a safe environment. Like I was interviewing the men first. I'm fine with giving a massage but I'm not, I'm not homosexual so I don't really like, enjoy it, man to man, but, you know...I think if you're a pimp you've gotta be willing to do it yourself."

It's really not OK to involve members of the public in your kinky sex fantasies. Or even your spiritual epiphanies. Especially if they involve shit.

And he keeps talking about his utmost respect for women.

Really, I just feel sorry for the guy, he obviously has some serious mental health issues.

Those of us trained in Ninjutsu recall the tale of the midget ninja Ukifune Jinnai who did much honor to his craft through similar means.

It's entirely possible though, that these guys were not honorable midget ninjas.

According to that google search for Luke Chrisco, he has a mental competency hearing this month.

I've never been to Australia, but in several places I've heard stories of a Troughman equivalent; either he gets around or he has fellow-travelers.

And once, when I was a teenager, an old guy tried to pick me up by showing me snapshots of dudes peeing. I can't imagine him in a portapotty, but I could easily imagine him knowing someone who would think it was a fine idea.

I've been awake for about 10 minutes so these links were the first thing I read upon waking up this morning. I'm really curious what that will mean for my day.

All I do know is that if I'd come in here and not found some variation of snofoam's comment, I would have felt like I understood the world that much less.

What I do know is that I've known a lot of severely kinky people in my time but none with this much follow through. As a usual critic of "normalcy" and ignoring your passions because of society's standards, I suddenly think I owe them a Coke or something.

This is pretty minor stuff, as far as it goes; in a Berlin bar that will remain nameless, me and my visiting buddy found a guy lying face-up in the urinal trough, I'm guessing for personal reasons of his own. Frankly, we'd had too much Jager/beer to be fussy about using it.

Actually, I meant that I should give a Coke to the (usually maligned by me) "normalcy" because this story shows me that whatever keeps kink "within reason"; the only thing I want to give the perpetrators is help.

This sort of thing happened to a friend of mine in high school, it was one of those legendary stories in my friend circle. I was never sure if he made it up or not, but he never lied before. He was at a forest preserve and a man was hiding under the porta-potty, eating the fecal matter of the people above him. Police found the guy and arrested him after it was reported. Apparently the perpetrator wasn't being all that subtle - my friend was haunted by the faint sound of someone making nearly subhuman, retching type noises below him.

I had blocked this completely out of my memory until just now. Thanks, MeFi?

Anyone here remember the Hellfire Club in NYC? The bathroom? The bathtub with the guy in it that would politely ask you to piss on him instead of the urinals?

I had many pleasant conversations with that guy.

@quincunx

I actually read it in a true crime book, but it's all over the internet in many, many places, too many to cite. Of course, the information comes from law enforcement and criminal profilers. It's a big deal in legislation concerning sex crimes too.

I just did a quick search, here's one of the more official sources I found, which cites some studies. I'm sure it's easy to find more if you're interested.

Excerpt (its' long):

Are "Peeping Toms" Likely to Commit More Serious Offenses ?

As Mr. Wolfe observes, the typical "peeping Tom" could engage
in less risky, less frightening, and completely legal activity,
such as viewing a sexually explicit video tape. Rather, it is the enjoyment of
risk, and the interaction with the victim, Mr. Wolfe says, which
motivates "peeping Toms." These same factors cause many "peeping
Toms" to escalate their behavior, thus posing a greater threat to
victims.


There's actual studies and numbers in there too, but too much to quote. Blah, blah- it's heavy stuff for an otherwise comical thread, and I'm not here to advocate any position because I'm not that invested...but yeah, if you're curious about crime in any real depth it's out there.

But to counter quincunx' claims of dangerous predators getting where they are via a path of porn, numerous scientific studies have statistically disproven these claims.

tl;dr: it's bunk. If anything, increased access to porn decreases incidences of violent sexual crimes in society.

Um, IAmBroom, that's not at ALL what I was linking to, or claiming. In fact, quite the opposite- one might even say that porn is a deterrant. If you read the article I linked, it has nothing to do with porn, and neither do my comments- they're about taking peeping and flashing seriously as an indicator of further criminal activity in the future. Full stop.

I've read that sexual predators usually start out along a predictable path: watching more and more explicit porn, ...

That's just a fact which it is entirely possible to acknowledge and still not be anti-porn. The point is the pattern of escalation, not the porn itself. I watch porn. I like porn. Not sure why you won't take my word for this. However, I am still capable of understanding criminal profiling. It doesn't mean that all people who watch porn are corrupted by it somehow, just that some people who end up committing crimes follow a pattern of escalation that, if predictable, can be useful to criminologists. It's probably true that these people already have something "off" about them, right? I don't know how to make this more grokable. I understand your views and even your need to argue them, but I really wish you wouldn't use me as the strawman for your argument once I've explained I was trying to make a different point entirely.
posted by quincunx at 2:57 PM on March 13, 2012


I believe Chuck Berry has a long history as a voyeur, so, given the reasoning that watching porn inevitably leads to sexual predation, you could also argue that bathroom voyeurism leads to the Beatles.

There's a very significant difference between some guy in a leather bar in a bathtub (or even urinal trough) asking to pissed on and what's happening in these stories. The former is consensual and both parties know what's going on -- clearly not the case with the latter. Moreover, no matter how gross you think the idea is, the former probably isn't a manifestation of severe mental illness whereas the latter probably is.

I honestly don't understand how that was in any way misleading. Did you even read what I linked? Because I doubt you did. I am sorry if it was misleading, but I don't think all the blame is on my side here. It would be nice not to be misrepresented.
