In a master-slave relationship gone wrong, 39-year-old American Charles Henson tried to kill his former allergic-to-latex girlfriend in London by stuffing his rubber glove-clad hand into her mouth.
Feeling this method lacked a certain...je nais se qua, he also shouted He-Man's catchphrase "By the power of Grayskull!" Miraculously, Henson's ex-girlfriend survived the attack DESPITE the invocation of a magical castle from a 1980s cartoon.
Henson sounds like a real peach, combining the most charming aspects of a kinky lawyer and demented killing machine. From the Guardian:
Henson denied he was trying to kill her, saying this was not allowed in their contract. "In section four of the contract, it says the master does not have a right to kill the slave," he said. "If I break bones, cut her, leave scarring or wounds without her consent - that's not allowed."I have the power, indeed!
He said if he had wanted to kill her his military training would have enabled him to do so in "four seconds". Addressing prosecutor Lynne Matthews he said: "I can take the palm of my hand and kill you by shoving your nose into your skull. That's a four-second death. If I wanted her dead, she would be dead."
