New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman allegedly called an ex-girlfriend his “brown slave” during sex and would sometimes slap her until she called him “master,” according to a Monday The New Yorker report.

Tanya Selvaratnam’s  that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman quickly became violent in the bedroom, she told The New Yorker magazine. Four women have come forward and accused the New York Democrat of physical violence and death threats.

“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said. “He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.'”

Her experience was not unique. Three other women also claim he slapped and choked them, threatened to kill them if they broke up with him, and even warned them he could have their phones tapped.

“It was at first as if he were testing me. Then it got stronger and harder. It wasn’t consensual. This wasn’t sexual playacting. This was abusive, demeaning, threatening behavior,” Selvaratnam added.

“He was cutting off my ability to breathe,” she said. Soon, “we could rarely have sex without him beating me.” Schneiderman, a supporter of the so-called “#MeToo” Movement, denies physically abusing anyone but acknowledged in a statement Monday engaging in sexual role play.

“Without the reporting of the @nytimes and the @newyorker — and the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men — there would not be the critical national reckoning underway,” he wrote in an April tweet about the women who have come forward to accuse men of sexual abuse. “A well-deserved honor.”
