Man Forces Sex Contract on His Wife

Travis Frey, an Iowa man with serious issues, was charged with first-degree assault and kidnapping after he tied his wife to the bed with a rope because she took their daughters to church. Stranger still is the contract of sexual and behavioral domination he asked her to sign. Here is the section from the four-page contract that covers "sleepwear and sleeping":
When we are at home, and alone as a family, you will be naked within 20 minutes of the kids being in bed, and then sleep naked, unless instructed otherwise. If I am not home when the kids go to bed you are still to be naked before I return home. The only exception will be during your menstrual cycle.

When we are not at home, or not alone as a family, you will try to ensure that we sleep together. If we do sleep together you will sleep naked. I will make exceptions for sleepwear, but only if you do not ask for them. Exception will be given based on how well you follow this contract in its entirety. If we do not sleep together your sleepwear must conform to the standards for exceptions.

When exceptions are given the following is acceptable and is your choice: T-shirts, pajama tops, or gowns as long as the over-all length is not past your knees. Panties (any type) can be worn also. Absolutely no bottoms, shorts, pajama pants, or full gowns can be worn.

When we are in bed together I can cuddle, spoon, hold or touch you in any way, as long as it is does [sic] not excessively disruptive to your sleep.
