Lauren Salzman as a NXIVM member
NXIVM was founded by Nancy Salzman and Keith Raniere in 1998. Previously, the duo named it Executive Success Programs, Inc. (ESP).
This was a self-improvement group that was geared to develop people through its workshops. However, five years later, NXIVM was created as an umbrella group of the ESP.
The group attracted a handful of people, predominantly celebrities and wealthy individuals who would, in turn, be lured into the inner circle.
Surprisingly, the inner circle was a cult, and most women owed their allegiance to Keith Raniere. This inner circle was called DOS (Dominus Obsequious Sororium), a Latin phrase for Master Over Slave Women.
Members of the inner circle were expected to label other women who were in the NXIVM as sex slaves. These sex slaves were to serve Keith Raniere, the group leader and co-founder of NXIVM.
Court proceedings and documents revealed that Lauren was both a master to other women and a sex slave to Raniere. Lauren told the court that she had her sex slave locked in her private room.
As a member of NXIVM Lauren Salzman had over 20 sex slaves.
So what happened to Lauren Salzman? Lauren pleaded guilty to all accounts levelled in court. However, her sentence is yet to be read. It was set to a later date following the outbreak of COVID-19.

The entire NXIVM was exposed by a member, Sarah Edmonson, who wanted to get out of the cult. Following investigations and exposes, the top members were arrested.
