In a chilling and disturbing audiotape, Smallville alum Allison Mack and NXIVM Ring Leader Keith Raniere explain how they branded women.
As part of the trial for leading the NXIVM sex cult ring, leader Keith Raniere revealed a new audiotape in which he and Smallville actress Allison Mack discuss at length their process for branding women as part of their slave-master scenario that they were allegedly a part of. Allison Mack and Keith Raniere, almost in a calm and bizarre manner, start to explain that the brandings would happen as a sacrifice of sorts. They would be tied down and also they had to ask for them to eventually brand them. Raniere explains it very graphically:
“Almost like tied down like a sacrificial whatever, and the person should ask to be branded. (They) should say, ‘Please brand me it would be an honor’ or something like that. ‘An honor I want to wear for the rest of my life.’ And they should probably say that before they’re held down so it doesn’t seem like they’re being coerced.”
In one part of the tape, Keith Raniere asks Allison Mack how she felt whilst being branded. It seems that Allison Mack was so deeply invested in her relation as a slave with Raniere, that she thought everything he did was in the name of love:
“I think one of the things that was so significant was that (inaudible name) said to me when we were doing the thing was: ‘Think of your master and your love for your master and think of the pain and link it to the love for your master.'”

One of the most bizarre cases in recent US legal history, the NXIVM members and Allison Mack are accused of allegedly forming and leading a sex cult ring. Some weeks ago, Allison Mack pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of racketeering (including extortion and forced labor) for her alleged time with NXIVM. Allison Mack also pleaded guilty to charges that she manipulated women into becoming sex slaves for NXIVM spiritual leader Keith Raniere. Her sentencing is set for September 11th.
Allison Mack is best known for her portrayal as Chloe Sullivan, one of young Clark Kent’s closest friends, in The CW’s Smallville some years ago. It was first discovered early last year that the former Smallville actress was involved in the NXIVM sex cult. Allison Mack was also allegedly a ring leader of the cult and headed a secret master-slave group within NXIVM called, “DOS.” In the secret group, Allison Mack branded women with her and Keith Raniere’s initials, with the women apparently being forced to comply with their assigned masters.
