A "sex monster" from Maidstone has complained he is being kept in prison because of his obsession with bondage.

David Ferguson says locking him up in a maximum security jail after he has served his minimum 20-year term amounts to sexual discrimination, reports The Mirror.

He reckons he is being treated more harshly than other inmates as he identifies as “Kink” or “K”, a term for people with an interest in sadomasochism.

Ferguson, 51, wants parole and could have been up for it last year after two decades inside for handcuffing his ex to a bed and slitting her throat.

But he is still behind bars after a series of assessments.

In a web rant, the beast moaned: “My sexual identity and orientation is being used against me by the prison service and its psychology department.

“This is because I identify as ‘Kink’ under the LGBTQ+ spectrum.”

Ferguson added: “The clear inferences in prison psychology reports is that unless I stop being kink my ‘risk’ cannot be lowered.

"Or, that being ‘kink’ is a controllable choice, which can be ‘treated and cured’.

“I am pretty sure that a homosexual person accused and convicted of a homosexual crime (sexual or otherwise), would not have their sexual orientation and identity used against them in the same way that my sexual identity and orientation is being used against me by the prison service and its psychology department.”

Ferguson posted the rant on a blog run on his behalf by a friend on the outside.

The fiend is behind bars for the 1999 murder of divorced mother-of-two Susan Kent, 33.

His trial heard he had been trying to set up a “rape club” on the net and described women as “pieces of meat”

Susan was repeatedly slashed as he acted out a rape fantasy at her home in Gillingham.

His trial heard he had been trying to set up a “rape club” on the net and described women as “pieces of meat”.

Print worker Ferguson was linked to the murder by DNA but he still claims he is innocent.

A judge at Maidstone crown court ordered him to serve at least 20 years in 2000 and he is in maximum security HMP Wakefield, West Yorks.

Some behavioural experts use the term K but LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall does not know how many identify that way.

Unrepentant Ferguson’s online rants have outraged victims’ campaigners but the Ministry of Justice has said it cannot stop them because they are posted by a third-party.

The Prison Service declined to comment.
