A woman who admits to working as an escort has hit back at claims she agreed to be abducted by a married company director in a 10-day ordeal as part of an elaborate BDSM game.

Elizaveta Babikova, 23, was found handcuffed in the ‘torture chamber dungeon’ cellar of a lockup garage after an extensive search for the missing woman.

She had disappeared after agreeing to accompany Sergei Sveshnikov, 39, to a restaurant in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod on August 24 after meeting him on an online dating site.

Separately, Sveshnikov, who owns a company repairing Russian power stations, had been reported missing by his wife Liliya, who said the father of her two children had left home as usual in his Mercedes SUV.

He is being held on suspicion of abducting the woman at knifepoint before imprisoning and repeatedly raping her behind steel doors in his soundproofed cellar.

It has since been reported that the Russian company director has hired a team of lawyers to argue that he is a BDSM fanatic and that Elizaveta had agreed to the “role-playing” session.

She was eventually found by police but he claimed to officers: “There was no abduction, it was all by mutual consent.”

But university graduate Elizaveta said that she only agreed to go to a restaurant with him on a "date" and soon realised that the married father-of-two was “creepy”.

The young woman told detectives how he arrived in a black Range Rover but soon stopped the car and asked her to "undress and have sex right there”.

She said that Sveshnikov bound and gagged her, before threatening her at knifepoint and driving her to his lockup.

"There were no games, no fun, nothing voluntary, totally nothing,” she said. “This is nonsense."

“He handcuffed me, tied my hands and legs."

He appeared once or twice a day in a balaclava and raped her in the well-equipped underground bunker which had a bed, bathroom and kitchen, and had been designed to imprison up to three women, she said.

"When I asked: ‘When will you let me go?’, he replied: ‘I like you, and so far this suits me, so you will stay here’.”

The room was allegedly equipped with CCTV so he could watch her when not in the dungeon.

He “forced me to have sex against my will,” she said.

“I want him to be jailed, to be punished properly for what he has done,” she told Life.

Sveshnikov’s wife Liliya is reportedly standing by him, and has organised lawyers to defend him.
