U.K. Man Pleads Not Guilty To Extreme Meth-Fueled S&M Gay Sex Session Gone Wrong

Kirk Thompson arrives at Newcastle Crown Court.

“The case you are to try over the next few weeks as the jury in this trial is an unusual one,” attorney Robert Smith told Newcastle Crown Court earlier this week. “It is also a very disturbing one.”

Smith is the prosecuting attorney in the case against 46-year-old Kirk Thompson, a former animal welfare adviser for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, who has been accused of killing 43-year-old David Kochs during an extreme meth-fueled S&M gay sex session at his home in Newcastle, England last year.

“Some of the injuries are likely to have been done with the deceased’s agreement as part of sado-masochist sexual activity,” Smith continued. “The evidence establishes the defendant clearly enjoyed inflicting pain on others.”

The two men met online in March 2013. During their sexual escapade, they got high on crystal meth before Thompson allegedly inflicted more than 40 lashings on Kochs’ back with a riding crop. He also burned him, inserted various objects into his body, including an electric toothbrush, and stapled his mouth shut with a surgical skin stapler

The building in which the alleged S&M session/murder took place.

After Kochs fell unconscious, Thompson covered his body with a duvet on the floor of his living room then invited another man he met online over to have sex. The second man told police he was unaware of the body, and says he departed from Thompson’s home around 7 a.m. the ensuing morning.

At 11 a.m., Thompson sent an urgent text message to his father, saying: “Can you come down immediately, something tragic has happened, just you not Mum please ASAP.”

As soon as Thompson’s father arrived at the scene, he called police.

“The scene that confronted the police and paramedics was indeed a disturbing one,” Smith told the jury. “David Kochs was lying on the floor beside the sofa and was partially covered by a duvet. He was wearing only a pair of leather ankle boots and he was surrounded by instruments and objects that had been used or were intended to be used as part of sado-masochistic activity.”

Thompson told police he had engaged in “extreme, no limits, anything goes” sex with Kochs after the two men got high on crystal meth together. He also claimed the entire thing had been consensual.

“Even if Mr. Kochs were in a position to consent,” Smith continued, “he certainly didn’t agree to the insertion of those items into his body with the degree of force required to cause those tearing injuries to his bowel.”

Thompson has pled not guilty to charges of manslaughter, unlawful wounding, and assault. He did, however, admit to possession of crystal meth.

The trial continues.

      People need to work through their crap on a therapist’s couch, or (imo) in nature, or even at church– but not in a f’ing sling. GET OVER IT… you are not as bad as the bullies in school said you were. You are not a piece of filth deserving of punishment. GET OVER IT. Instead of being so singularly focused on the repression and abuse we get from the republicans, we need to think about how much we do to ourselves. GET OVER IT.

      Sounds like death from peritonitus. Similar to a notorious case in New York City years ago where group sex resulted in a death, something that happened at the height of the HIV scare. I should think Thompson would be found guilty of negligent homicide or manslaughter at most. He certainly did not mean for Kochs to die. But the case is no less troubling.

      @Fitz: Thank you for saying it first so I didn’t have to. No doubt you’ll be demonised as an anti-”sex positive” puritan killjoy. In reality, of course, the “acting out” of these damaged individuals is the very definition of “sex-NEGATIVE”; emotion-deadening, joy-KILLING, pain-inflicting, dehumanised and dehumanising.

      And if y’all don’t like what I’ve said: I will take a cheese grater to your scrotum! Mmmmm :)

      Le vice anglais, as the French like to say. The repression and hostility in English society seem to correlate to their tendency towards sado-masochism.

      Oh I remember my young sex crazed meth days where we would try and figure out a way to shove a lawn mower up someone’s butt. A riding lawn mower. But only one that was HIV negative to play safe.

      As a member of the BDSM community I never play while under the influence it takes away your power and gives the top to much control.
