'Prinsloo made me his sex toy'
Minsk - One of Dirk Prinsloo's Russian mistresses says her "nine months of hell" with him "felt more like nine years".
Anastasia, 23, spoke exclusively to Beeld on condition that her surname was not made public and said Prinsloo was a "perverse bastard" and a "monster… who should be locked in a cage".
In an interview lasting three hours, the slightly-built green-eyed blonde described this "hell" in detail.
"It felt more like nine years. It is time that somebody spoke about it. I have to be his last victim."
She said Prinsloo had turned her into a frightened, submissive "sexual plaything, slave and housewife" whose only aim was to satisfy his increasingly depraved sexual needs.
"I was only a sexual plaything to him, nothing more."
Prinsloo's serious psychological and emotional abuse made a "robot" of her, she said.
"In the end I no longer cared what he did to me… It was even difficult for me at that stage to know the difference between right and wrong."
Anastasia, a lawyer, was dismayed that Prinsloo was found not guilty by the Baranovitchi Regional Court on charges that he had "systematically" assaulted, tortured and threatened to kill her.
She said laws were "insufficient to deal with cases where women were abused".
According to Anastasia, it was necessary for Prinsloo to "humiliate women to feel powerful and turned on".
He called her his "human toilet" and forced her to performed associated acts.
He also beat her to make her "obedient" and forced her to call him "God and Daddy". He also forced her to have his name and face tattooed on her lower body.
Prinsloo allegedly taught her to say perverse things to him in Afrikaans during sex.
Violence turned him on and often, after he had beaten her, would force her to have sex with him.
During sexual acts he had choked her, slapped her and spat on her face.
He described violent Satanic fantasies to her, which he wanted her to help him fulfil.
'Thank God I'm alive'
He took over her computer and spent hours on it downloading pornography from the internet.
He had no money and Anastasia had to take care of him. She had to borrow thousands of dollars to do this and was still trying to pay it back.
"I am not very religious but when he was finally out of my life, I went to a church and lit a candle to thank God that I was still alive."
A year later she was still struggling to put together the pieces of her shattered life.
The tattoos on her body were a daily reminder of him.
"I am trying to get them removed but it is very expensive and will take a long time. There is no guarantee that it can be removed completely."
She still had nightmares and she admitted that she needed counselling although she couldn't afford it.
