Here's proof that's bound to pun a downer on your 50 Shades of Grey
fantasies. This expose printed in the New York Post involves Edward
Sonderling, a 53-year-old Ivy-league graduate investment banker who had
been in a BDSM relationship with a 27-year-old live-in slave called
Santiago had been Sonderling's "slave" for three years, until she discovered he'd been seeing someone
else. Things quickly took a turn for the worse, leading to an all-out fight, 40 threatening text messages, and stalking charges:
The submissive [Frankie] Santiago exploded in a fit of rage, law-enforcement sources said, allegedy shattering Sonderling's car windshield and bombarding him with dozens of text threats. [...]
Santiago - who is known in the bondage-domination S&M community as Althea Lyn - was arrested Monday after what sources said was a knock-down, drag-out fight with [Edward] Sonderling at the East 57th Street apartment where she once did his daily bidding.
She was arraigned yesterday on charges of stalking, criminal mischief and aggravated harassment.
Sonderling, a Brown and Horace Mann graduate and CEO of his own investment firm, Priority Investors LLC, refused to comment, and Santiago didn't respond to reporters.
