New harassment claims made against BC man with baby role-playing fetish
Several women in B.C. who are massage therapists that run home businesses, speaking on the condition of anonymity, have said they were repeatedly harassed by a Vancouver Island University student that wanted to pretend he was a baby, and engage with them in mother-baby role playing.
The student, Michael Sutherland, has been diagnosed with paraphilic infantilism, the desire to act like an infant.
One woman said Sutherland’s behaviour during a massage became more and more bizarre, “As soon as he asked if I had friends that he could nurse from, that crossed the line for me,” she said.
Another claimed Sutherland often sucked on a soother, and brought stuffed animals to the massages and asked to read him bedtime stories.
Sutherland denied the allegations against him, and none of the allegations against Sutherland have been proven in a court of law. “I’m special needs and any sexual harassment claims against me from any women are false, being that I am asexual too, so I have no interest in sex”, Sutherland said.
