Nxivm: It's one WTF after another.

According to court documents, a secret society called "DOS" or the "Vow" existed within Nxivm.

Constructed like a pyramid scheme, levels of "slaves" were managed by "masters". Unbeknownst to almost all members of the Vow, Mr Raniere - the only male member of the group - was the sole occupant of the highest tier, serving as the "highest master."

Slaves were expected to recruit slaves of their own, who all ultimately worked to service Mr Raniere.

Masters sold DOS to prospective slaves as a special offshoot of Nxivm, according to Mr Lever in his affidavit.

To join, women were compelled to give "collateral" to their masters - material or information that would be "ruinous" to the woman to provided it, if exposed.

The collateral included sexually explicit photographs and videos containing damaging information to the prospective slave, her family or friends.
