Castration Fetish Leads to Botched Castration Surgery
Highlands County, Florida

While some fetishes are seemingly harmless fun, other fetishes are let’s just say, a bit out there. In case you did not know (I didn’t) castration happens to be a fetish, for some and by some I am hoping few or it’s just a Florida thing. An elderly Florida man was arrested Monday after allegedly performing a botched castration surgery on a man he had met on a, you guessed it, castration fetish website.
So no, you would not find this sort of thing on Tinder, Match or any of the other mainstream dating sites around. Highlands County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post announcing the arrest of Gary Van Ryswyk, “You could even say it’s kinda nuts.”
Kinda is putting it mildly.
According to the arrest affidavit deputies responded on Aug. 18, 2019 to a home in Sebring, located 90 miles east of Tampa, after a terminated 911 call. They found Gary Van Ryswyk, 74, who answered the door and allegedly informed them that he had just castrated a man who police subsequently found on the bed with a towel over his groin, which was bleeding heavily and Nearby, there was a pink container which held two body parts that had recently been much closer to the victim.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Gary Van Ryswyk had built a surgery room in the home, according to authorities, equipped with medical equipment, painkillers and a camera to record the procedure. He allegedly said he met the man on a website that caters to people with castration fetishes.
That’s one way to find the one for you, I guess. To the shock of the police however, Gary Van Ryswyk said he had done a similar procedure on a man in a local motel a few years ago that turned out pretty much like this one, but couldn’t remember the other man’s name. So he is one of those that just doesn’t call after…
Gary Van Ryswyk was charged with practicing medicine without a license resulting in bodily injury, a second-degree felony. He was being held on $250,000 bond.
