You just can’t make this stuff up. Only in a movie or down a dark alley would you see people in such strange situations. The box office hit trilogy 50 Shades Of Grey has been released every Valentine’s Day for the past three years, fillings women’s heads with the notion of being with a man like Christian Grey, a wildly rich, ruggedly handsome, and emotionally damaged young man with such a sad backstory that anyone would want to heal him. This, however, would require signing a contract in which his submissive agrees to follow rules set for her, and just generally obey her dominant.
That is exactly what happened with Las Vegas GOP political advisor Benjamin Sparks. The dirty “red-room” secrets came to light on March 29th when Sparks’ ex-fiancee decided that he had gone too far after backhanding her during their rapidly increasing rough sex-play.
The victim, whose name has not been released to the media, says that:
“He was very demanding and did not take no for an answer. Over the last month it escalated into very rough sex where he’d actually hurt me. He back-handed me … and forced himself on me.”
According to emails and text messages the woman turned over to police:
“Sparks and his ex-fiancée signed a five-page contract stating that she would be his “slave and property.” Under the contract, the woman was forced to kneel and look down when she entered his presence, be nude at all times, have sexual relations with him whenever he wanted and wear a collar in private.”
The final straw was met the day before the woman went to police, when Sparks texted her about having sex with other men while bound and blindfolded. The next day, the couple argued and an noticeably inebriated Sparks refused to let the woman leave the home for hours. That is when Sparks himself called 911 and told the operator that the victim had just tried to commit suicide after beating him up.
When police arrived, Sparks had fled the scene. The police found enough physical evidence to prove domestic abuse, including a missing fingernail, but Sparks had already fled to Texas.
The police report, undoubtably written by a man, said:
“She (the victim) refused to complete a voluntary statement for police and that she did not attempt to call police, despite having access to her phone, during the two-hour period that Sparks was alleged to have blocked her escape.”
The victim told the media the following:
“I truly don’t want this to happen to another girl. I’m strong and have a great support system and despite that, this almost broke me.”
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal:
“Sparks most recently worked on Republican Cresent Hardy’s campaign to win back the 4th Congressional District seat he held from 2015 to 2017, evaded police after the domestic dispute at the woman’s home on March 29. Officers determined there is “probable cause to arrest Sparks for domestic battery,” and charges are pending.”
Sparks refused to comment on this story.
