I tried to kill myself twice after Ghislaine Maxwell’s dungeon of hell, says victim – as madam jailed for 20 years 0 150

A JEFFREY Epstein survivor has said she tried to kill herself twice after being locked up in Ghislaine Maxwell’s “dungeon of hell” as the convicted sex trafficker was sentenced today.

Sarah Ransome shared photos of her in a hospital bed after two suicide attempts she blamed on the trauma of being turned into Epstein and Maxwell‘s “sex toy”.

In a victim impact statement, Ransome said she was left so distressed she once tried jumping off a cliff into shark-infested water on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.

“I was nothing more than a sex toy with a heartbeat and soul used to entertain Epstein, Maxwell and others,” she said.

“On one visit to the island, the sexual demands, degradation and humiliation ensued me to try to escape by jumping off a cliff into shark-infested waters.

“I was caught by Maxwell and company moments before jumping.

“At the time, that extremely risky escape seemed more appealing than being raped one more time”.

Ransome said coming from a broken home “made me a prime target” for Epstein’s sick sexual exploits.

“I have attempted suicide twice since the abuse – both near-fatal,” she said, sharing photos of her in a hospital bed recovering from an attempt in 2008 and another ten years later during litigation against Epstein and Maxwell in 2018.

Ransome said Maxwell was the “Five Star General of this enormous, decades-long sex trafficking conspiracy” who deserved no mercy in her sentencing.

She said: “Maxwell is today the same woman I met almost 20 years ago – incapable of compassion or common human decency.”

She added: “Sentencing her to the rest of her life in prison will not change her, but it will give survivors a slight sense of justice.

“To Ghislaine I say – ‘You broke me in unfathomable ways, to which only you, the almighty God and I were witnesses.

“‘But you didn’t break my spirit or dampen the internal flame of determination that now burns inside me brighter now than even before!’”.

It comes as Maxwell was today jailed for 20 years for decades of abuse after grooming dozens of girls for twisted Epstein.

The shamed 60-year-old enticed vulnerable teenagers to vile multi-millonaire paedophile Epstein‘s various luxurious properties – with the pair described as “partners in crime”.

In what was described as the “trial of the century”, the jury heard how Maxwell snared and “served up” girls as young as 14 for Epstein – and even joined in the abuse herself.

The prosecutor said Maxwell was a “sophisticated predator who knew exactly what she was doing” who “ran the same playbook again and again and again”.

Maxwell was convicted of five out of six counts of sex trafficking by a jury in December, and today faces sentencing after her lawyers called for a maximum of five years.

Since the verdict in December, Maxwell has been holed up at the notorious Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn – considered one of America’s toughest jails.

The predator was held in solitary confinement for months and was placed on suicide watch and forced to wear a special “smock” before being transferred from a high security unit to a cell shared with other inmates.

In the lead up to her trial, Maxwell’s lawyers repeatedly – and unsuccessfully – tried to persuade the judge to release her on bail, complaining she was enduring a “living hell”.

She sensationally spoke out from her “wretched, dank” prison cell, claiming “creepy” guards watched her as she used the bathroom and that her only company was the rats near to the open sewer drain.

Her lawyers even argued her jail conditions were fit only for fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter, saying her continued imprisonment was “untenable and unreasonable”.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 259

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
