In 1998 we kidnapped two strangers and held them in a safe house for 48 hours. We live-streamed it all online. And got sponsored by a clothes company. And appeared on BBC 1 and ITV and Channel 4 and Channel 5.
As part of our 30th birthday celebrations, we’ve made a little documentary about what happened and why we did it. We talk about lottery madness and the person who fantasised about being kidnapped by dolphins. We explain what happened if you paid extra for handsome/pretty kidnappers.
And we talk about the impact of the Spanner trial. Four gay men were sent to prison for consensual SM (welcome to Thatcher’s Britain). And our anger about that drove us to do a bit of consensual non-consent of our own.
