A harem might be fun but it is bloody expensive

Cock tax is evil and this bloke found out the hard way that a harem might be fun but it is bloody expensive, especially once the cock tax kicks in.

The former owner of Loaded magazine kept a harem of more than a dozen women known as his ‘Hunny Bunnies’ and showered them with lavish gifts in return for sex, a court has heard.

The private life of Paul Baxendale-Walker, a former barrister turned porn star, was exposed as he become embroiled in a court battle with an ex-stripper who is fighting to keep the flat and Range Rover he gave her when they were lovers.

Mr Baxendale-Walker, who sold Loaded earlier this month, freely admits he gives women in his “girlfriends club” the lifestyle they desire and then “withdraws the benefits” when he is “no longer satisfied”. 

However, Natasha Eustace, 25, is taking him to court claiming that she was more than just a member of his harem and therefore entitled to keep a £300,000 flat in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey and the car he bought her.

In a judgment at the High Court today a judge refused to throw her claim out before trial.

In his “less than gallant” defence Mr Baxendale-Walker argues: “She was never anything more than a TV stripper and glamour model, who provided sex and occasional companionship in exchange for a comfortable and conditional standard of living which I procured for her.

“She is only one of more than a dozen girls for whom I procure the provision [of] housing, cars and other benefits. The provision is always conditional on my satisfaction with the relationship. As soon as I am no longer satisfied, the use benefits are withdrawn.”

He asked the judge to rule in his favour because the case is being “driven” by an “unemployed sex-worker, former model and former temporary member of my girlfriends club” who has decided to “make up a silly story” to get a house.

Miss Eustace says were lovers from 2010 until earlier this year and, despite the occasional argument over other women, it was a “long-term and faithful relationship which would eventually lead to marriage”.
