"POLICE insisted last night they are powerless to act against a bizarre sex slavery sect operating in the North-East.
An investigation by The Northern Echo has uncovered evidence that more than 350 people in the region may be engaged in consensual slavery rituals based on a series of science fiction novels dating from the 1960s.
But last night, police said they had discontinued their investigation... saying there had been no criminal activity because all the sect's members were consenting adults.
The Kaotians are a splinter group of the Goreans and there are believed to be as many as 25,000 members in the UK.
Both groups base their beliefs on a series of science fiction novels written by US professor John Norman and first published in the 1960s.
The novels describe a society called the land of Gor, which is divided into castes and where women are kept as slaves.
