Hollywood has not only seen its fair share of cults but this crazy city has definitely seen and hosted a few scandalous and horrific sex cults since the late 60s.
A surprising number of sex cults have been founded in the U.S., thanks to our 1st Amendment, and the late 1960’s may have been the most perfect time for their gurus. This may have had something to with the “free love” and “peace” ethos of the time.
Almost all leaders are male, none are classically attractive, but all exercise a stronghold over their followers. Take for example The Source, The Purple People and Children of God. Now, it seems like Nxivm has made its way into being one of the most scandalous sex cults of the 21st century with shocking statements and claims of sex trafficking, sex slaves, branding, racketeering, and brainwashing. Not to mention, the amount of Hollywood celebrities, directors and heiresses that were involved and apart of this scandalous cult.
Tune in as we discuss the history of sex cults in California and the sex cult that shook Hollywood, Nxivm.
