A fourth civil suit has been filed against a Wascott man over photos and comments he allegedly posted on FetLife, a social media site for people with unusual sexual practices.

The new suit against Jay Link was filed in Douglas County Circuit Court Thursday, Nov. 5. It involves two additional plaintiffs, bringing the total to 18.

  • RELATED: Third civil case filed over posts on fetish social media site The new suit doubles the number of plaintiffs seeking damages.
  • According to the civil complaints, Link posted pictures and comments to the site from about 2017 to 2019 under the name “Sexsafari.” Most of the photos were of women. Some appeared to be Facebook photos taken by the women themselves, others depicted women nude or partially nude, sometimes engaged in sexual acts. The women were identified as sluts using their real first names. Some captions indicated that “Sexsafari” had trained or bred the women.

    The suit accuses Link of invasion of privacy, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress and defamation. The women are seeking punitive damages.

    The suit was filed by the Washburn-based law firm of Spears, Carlson & Coleman. The same firm represents 15 of the other plaintiffs — a suit involving seven women filed July 15, 2019, and a suit filed Sept. 23 on behalf of eight women. A suit involving one additional plaintiff was filed Oct. 3, 2019.
