A leading sexual therapist has condemned the actions of Britain’s renegade 'Gimp Men' and warned that their motives are to "intimidate and threaten".

Police forces across the UK have rushed to crack down on rogue exhibitionists in recent weeks who have taken to stalking quiet suburban streets in the dead of night.

The most famous example of the strange new trend comes from Somerset where furious residents have begged police to rid them of the 6ft 'harmless' Gimp Man that has been terrorising the area.

There have been 16 sightings of the elusive leather otter in the area in the last four years alone, but they have spiked recently with two women running terrified from his latest appearance last week.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Bedbible's sex expert Isabelle Uren lifted the lid on why gimp suits were used by certain sections of the BDSM community.

She said: "Bondage suits are used for power plays in the BDSM scene.

"Someone might wear a bondage suit to show complete submission. It’s designed to cover the whole body and is made from rubber, leather or PVC. It helps the person wearing it get into a space of submission.

"It takes away their personal identity and they become an object to serve their master in any way they need. This can be done as part of a healthy part of BDSM play when it’s done consensually."

However, she believes that far from being 'harmless' as the local police have claimed, the actions of the Somerset gimp man suggest a more threatening purpose.

She continued: "The man in Somerset is doing this in a very different situation. It’s not consensual, what’s happening is they're creating fear and intimidation.

"It’s hard to say why they’re doing it, but it could be behind a need for exhibitionism. They could be getting sexually aroused by showing other people themselves in this state. He’s behaving in a threatening way."

And with sightings of the leather-clad stalkers on the rise, Isabelle warns that the new trend could end up demonising the BDSM community.

She said: "My fear is rather than this becoming an epidemic, if more people start behaving like this it’s very detrimental to the BDSM community as it gives a very negative image to a healthy part of some people’s sex lives.

“If people see this as something that gets a reaction, they could very well start doing it for the wrong reasons.”
