Royal link to ‘elite’ London sex club and Swedish model who battered his girlfriend

15:20 20 August 2012

A male model beat up his girlfriend at a sex party organised by a woman who once rowed with Princess Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Patrick Ribbsaeter, 32, from Sweden, was jailed for five years for grievous bodily harm against partner Wachirapom Sara-Pod - also a model.

The pair had a severe falling out last October at a sex party in Soho, central London.

It was organised by Killing Kittens, a swingers club which bills itself as for the ‘elite.’

Socialite Emma Sayle runs the firm - which offers four types of membership and approves new members. She once rowed with Prince William’s wife at a charity event.

Ribbsaeter went crazy after catching his girlfriend – known as Anna, in a toilet with another man at the event.

Driving home afterward, he launched a sustained verbal and physical assault on her.

It forced girlfriend Anna to escape by fleeing to a petrol station, naked except for a fur coat.

During the attack, Ribbsaeter smashed Anna’s head against the window and dashboard of her Range Rover - taking what the court heard was “sadistic pleasure” in doing so.

Ribbsaeter, who lives in Streatham, had denied the charge - claiming he was worried she was “wasted” on cocaine.

Anna agreed to his suggestion of sex when the attack finished because she hoped it would calm him down.

But afterwards Ribbsaeter launched another assault.

Camilla de Silva, prosecuting, told the jury: “This was a party called Killing Kittens, which for those of you not in the know is a swingers’ party.

“This is where paying customers attend with a view to having sex with other people.

“Miss Sara-Pod went into one of the toilet cubicles with a male friend to take some cocaine.

“Mr Ribbsaeter also went into the toilet and found Miss Sara-Pod there. This angered him and there was an argument.”

Miss de Silva said: “At one point he stopped the car and grabbed her hair and hit her head against the console and window.

“The beating continued until at one stage he suggested they have sex. She agreed because she thought it would calm him down.”

But after, he began attacking her again as they sat in the back of her Land Rover Discovery car.

“At one point he also put his hands around her throat pushing her head into the seat so she felt she was being choked. With blood in her mouth she found it hard to breathe,” said Miss de Silva.

“This only stopped because he thought she was losing consciousness.
