|Dr. Edwin Perez|
At an event called the Cirque de Plasir in Manhattan, Dr. Perez, acting as the dominant, is witnessed using what looks like an arterial line catheter to extract blood from his submissive and then spraying the fluid onto a white art canvas.
Dr. Perez tells the reporter that he and his partners don't do blood play only at S&M parties. They also perform the act in their private homes. He says everything is done under mutual consent and the girls even hang their bloody art work in their rooms.
Of course his professional life and private activities are totally separate. He compares his S&M participation to professional wrestling, "Like the WWE...kids don't try this at home. I just want to be treated like every other extreme performer. It just turns out that I have a day job." He says these parties always have "dungeon monitors" to make sure everybody is comfortable submitting to the different forms of masochistic play that are being administered.
When asked, the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners say that what Dr. Perez does in his private life is not punishable, no matter how unsavory. Unless there is a specific work place complaint, he is free to do as he wishes outside the hospital.
Is it a coincidence that Dr. Perez is listed also as a pain physician? He certainly chose the right medical field to enter. With his extracurricular activities, if I wanted somebody to draw my ABG, he would probably be the first one I'd ask for.
