Springfield Diocese: Non-Sexual Bondage Not A Recognized Mental Disorder

The Springfield Catholic Diocese has released new information about a priest who was placed on indefinite leave following a bizarre 911 call last year.


Father Thomas Donovan had to call for help after he became stuck in a pair of handcuffs.


According to police reports, Donovan was also wearing a bondage mask and gag when he became unable to free himself.


In response to what he calls “misinformation” about the case, Bishop Thomas John Paprocki issued a statement asserting that Donovan was alone at the time and that the incident was not sexual in nature.


Donovan’s therapist says it stems from a stress-related condition called “non-sexual self-bondage,” but acknowledges that is not a recognized mental health diagnosis at this time.
