A Norwegian man known as the ‘Eunuch Maker’ has admitted removing a man’s penis and clamping the testicles of another victim.
Marius Gustavson, 45, who is said to have made up to £200,000 live streaming ‘body modifications’, admitted two charges of causing grievous bodily harm with intent at the Old Bailey.
Gustavson, who lives in Tottenham, north London, has had his own penis and nipple removed.
The operations were uploaded to Gustavson’s ‘Eunuch Maker’ website which subscribers would pay to watch.
The practice is linked to a subculture where men become ‘nullos’ – short for genital nullification – by having their penis and testicles removed.
The conspiracy is said to have involved up to 29 extreme body modifications, the removal of body parts and the trade in body parts with eight other men.
On Friday, Gustavson pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm, two counts of causing grievous bodily harm and one count of possessing criminal property, namely money.
He pleaded not guilty to three further counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
The GBH charges relate to five alleged victims, including the removal of a man’s penis and the clamping of another’s testicles.
He admitted making and distributing two indecent videos of a child between January 2017 and January 2020.
His alleged ‘right-hand man’ surgeon Peter Wates, 66, has admitted conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
