Yes, L. Ron Hubbard wrote even more about children and sex, and we need to talk about it

We continue to explore L. Ron Hubbard’s statements about sex and children since Leah Remini made that subject such a part of the second season of her series, Scientology and the Aftermath.

We understand that these stories are uncomfortable for some former Scientologists. But we believe these are important examinations of who Hubbard was, and what ideas he put into Scientology that had terrible consequences for so many people over many years.

We have followed up with victims featured in Leah’s show, like Mirriam Francis. We started a new occasional series with the help of Sunny Pereira and Mark Plummer about the way kids were treated in the Sea Org. We have been working to make more people aware of a very disturbing statement by Hubbard about how a 7-year-old girl should react to being kissed by a man which appears in Scientology’s most important book, Dianetics. We’ve examined a horrifying 1952 lecture about past lives and the sexual abuse of children, and Scientologists have explained to us how this resulted in an environment that condoned child abuse in Scientology.

We’re going to continue to re-examine Hubbard’s words and actions regarding children and sex. Today, we have more material for you to consider.


Near the very end of his life, Hubbard was busy writing science fiction, something he had come back to after many years away. Hubbard went into permanent hiding in February 1980, living the last six years of his life with just a small handful of caretakers, eventually settling at a ranch near Creston, California.

While he was in hiding, in 1982 he put out Battlefield Earth, a return to the space opera genre he had been known for in the late 1930s and early 1940s. He then followed that up with a monster work — a 1.2-million word manuscript that Sea Org worker Robert Vaughn Young found a way to edit and divide into ten separate books, the “Mission Earth” series.

Only the first volume had come out before Hubbard died on January 24, 1986. But Scientologists reportedly used artificial means to pump up the sales of these books so that they were bestsellers. Despite that, they aren’t spoken of much these days except in ridicule, particularly for the unsettling sexual content in them.

We took one for the team and decided to read some of the most notorious of that material, from the ninth volume in the series, Villainy Victorious.

This material is actually spread over several chapters, but we have recapped it in order to make it more clear what’s going on. Hubbard, for example, writes these books as if they were a translated report, and the translator has replaced swear words with a cute “(Bleep),” but in almost every case the context (and even rhyme) makes it obvious what word Hubbard means, and so we’ve included them. Also, Hubbard prefaced the series by saying it was satire, but if it is, it’s really not clear what, exactly, he was satirizing.

We look forward to your thoughts. So here we go.

As Chapter 6 of Villainy Victorious begins, the space freighter Blixo is tearing away from Earth with a couple of unhappy passengers: The Earth girl Teenie Whopper (“she must have been fourteen or fifteen at the most”), and a PR man in his thirties, J. Walter Madison.

Teenie informs Madison that they have been shanghaied by a man who turned out to be an extraterrestrial — Teenie says she realized the difference because of the large size of the alien’s penis and testicles. “Too big for any human, and I’m an expert,” she says.

Madison is gloomy after realizing that he is being taken away from his mother, who is his sex partner.

In order to make the best of their situation, Teenie finds a way to make some cash on their trip to the planet Voltar, which is some 22 light years away.

She pimps out another passenger, the catamite Two-lah. (Wikipedia: “In its modern usage the term catamite refers to a boy as the passive or receiving partner in anal intercourse with a man.”)

Madison learns about Teenie’s activities when Blixo’s Captain Bolz shows him into a room.

Two-lah, a “pretty-looking boy” with makeup on his face and a “beatific smile” is lying face down on a bed as a crew member is getting back into his clothes after sodomizing the boy. Two-lah is licking his lips and smiling “a vacant smile.”

Teenie sticks a marijuana joint into the boy’s mouth and counts the cash from the crew member, and explains to a shocked Madison that she’s trying to raise Voltarian cash before they arrive, because Earth money is no good there.

And Two-lah is easy money because, “He’s just about the most nympho catamite you ever did see. And when he’s hopped up on marijuana he can take it all day and night, too! He’s a sponge! Kind of cute, too. You want a piece?”

Captain Bolz isn’t happy about Teenie’s operation, but a week later Madison finds her in Bolz’s office, going through the captain’s financial ledger. Shocked, Madison says the captain will kill her if he finds out.

She responds that she’s been going down on the captain once a day to “keep him cooled off,” and was just checking to see how much money he has to keep paying her for the oral sex.

She also offers to go down on Madison, but he recoils, saying he can’t be unfaithful to his mother.

He warns her again about antagonizing Captain Bolz, but she says the real problem is that she had set her price for oral sex too low, and the captain can only manage once a day, “even with what I learned from the Hong Kong whore.”

She then has a brainstorm. She plans to “slip hash oil into his hot jolt,” and that will have the captain orgasming “three times a day!”

Later, after arriving at Voltar, Madison is flat broke and thinks he sees Teenie working as a slave. He makes it his goal to rescue her. But she laughs at him — it turns out what he mistakenly thought was slave work was her planting marijuana at a deserted palace she had taken over.

She explains that she had given the catamite Two-lah to a “Lord Endow,” and had taught Two-lah some tricks that “pleased Lord Endow no end.” As a reward, when they arrived at Voltar, Lord Endow sent Teenie to page school, where Two-lah convinced the other young boys to train as catamites as well. Two-lah convinced Lord Endow that Teenie had been a “movie queen” on Earth, and he set her up in the abandoned palace.

She tells Madison that he’s just in time for some sort of exhibition, and two 12-year-old page-boys approach them. Teenie then begins to perform oral sex on one of them. “They’ll be top-grade catamites when I’m done,” she says to a horrified Madison.

Still angry over what had happened back on Earth, Teenie has her guards seize Madison and tie him to a chair. After the show that’s about to begin, she will decide his fate. Teenie leaves but then makes a grand entrance, with hundreds of boys chanting “Queen Teenie!”

She tells the boys that she is going to teach them a “technical” lesson, then shows them illustrations of the human body marked, she says, with 172 erotic spots. To demonstrate how they work, she calls up a young virgin from the crowd.

She has him stripped, then she touches a spot near his spine, and he becomes erect. She then touches a spot on his right thigh, and he goes flaccid. “The audience groaned.”

She touches his lower lip, and he becomes erect again, then she touches the side of his neck and his erection stiffens further. Then she “touched a spot at the lower center of the boy’s pubic hair” and he ejaculates.

“Then there were cries of amazement and suddenly wild applause.”

She then touches a spot on his throat, and he becomes erect again, then touches his ear with her tongue, and he ejaculates again.

The boy vows to be her vassal forever.

To Madison’s surprise, a rock band then strikes up a Beatles song, and follows it with something that sounds like Elvis Presley. A male singer in a military shirt then sings a song, which includes these lyrics…

Oh, a soldier’s life is the life for me,
In camp and plain, I’m always free
No women ever spoil my view
They’re always wanting something new,
For it is the men that I enjoy
The best there is, I find, is boy!
The enemy I do not mind
Can go on in my behind
And if my bunkmates all are kind
Surrounded by ten thousand cocks
All passionate and hard as rocks
Eager to slide in my buttocks
So fuck, fuck, fuck, and fuck in me!
And let me fuck and fuck in thee
Oh, what a love-ul-lee Arm-ee!

After stripping off most of her clothes, Teenie then has another lecture for the crowd. She explains that the sphincter muscle is the “muscle of life and death,” and that controlling the sphincter muscle is key.

“You can make it go round and round,” she says, and then pairs off Two-lah with the young son of the nobleman Snor.

She then has Two-Lah bend over, then instructs two of her pages to get the son of Snor erect and inside Two-Lah’s anus.

She commands them to hold the son of Snor perfectly still as Two-lah works his sphincter muscle.

“Madison, staring, flinched at a scream of ecstasy from the son of Snor.”

After the son of Snor’s orgasm, Teenie calls for a general orgy to begin, and the page-boys throw off their clothes.

Returning to the tied-up Madison, Teenie informs him that she has decided not to sentence him to death, but to sentence him to sexually pleasuring her.

“I always wanted to break that fixation you have on your mother,” she says, and tells him that if he doesn’t come up to her room, he will be executed in the morning.

After a couple of hours, he decides to go to her room, but by then he has thought of a strategem that will convince Teenie to release him, and he can remain faithful to his mom.

There is much more in other parts of this book series. But we think this portion makes the point. So, you tell us, should we judge L. Ron Hubbard for putting this material in a work of fiction? Or does he get a pass since it’s not part of his Scientology books? Even though it is fiction, what does it say that Hubbard’s imagination at the age of 74 seems consistent with what he wrote in Dianetics at the age 39, and two years later in his lecture about the whole track and molestation?

Let’s discuss it.
