Anybody else out there remember an Anne Rice (writing as Anne Rampling) kinky book Exit To Eden? When the Epstein Island (Orgy Island) stories emerged, whenever that was, I noticed the coincidence. One fictional, one possibly a factual kink island. Rice’s book was published in 1985. It is in the vein of the Sleeping Beauty books, high class kinky porn, well-written that engages the reader. It’s in the Read At The Beach category of books. Not a bad book, if porn doesn’t gross you out.
So in 1998, rich guy Jeffrey Epstein buys Little St James Island in the US Virgin Islands, does some construction and landscaping and then, Bob’s your uncle, it’s nicknamed Orgy Island. We got your life imitating art going on here.
Now Epstein is busted, alleged to be a world class pervert, tarnishing the reputations of law-abiding perverts who play with consenting adults, use safe words, etc.
I guess I wouldn’t have mentioned it, were it not for the fact that he is in the news. His arrest follows in the wake of the NXIVM “cult” convictions..That group was run by an even creepier guy than Epstein, Keith Raniere. I don’t know if that specimen has been sentenced yet, but he should be on ice for a while.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to find out that there are people out there who really want to hurt people and exploit the weak, but there are.
These stories are going to be around for a while, as their threads unravel. If you are like me, you are wishing you could un-see them already,
