Peter Acworth, the CEO of fetish porn site Kink.com has been arrested for possession of cocaine. On February 1, police stormed the "$14.5 million studio/dungeon" headquarters for the site in San Francisco after a "concerned citizen" said he saw a video of people shooting guns in the studio. Although there wasn't enough evidence to file gun-related charges, they did arrest Acworth on one count of cocaine possession and one count of delaying arrest. The BDSM company was founded in 1997 and is the subject of a James Franco documentary entitled Kink. “I am kinky," Acworth told The Daily Beast in January. “I’ve always had an intense desire to be tied up, since childhood, so when I discovered bondage pornography around 17, then I felt, I guess I’m kinky, and that’s OK."
