COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC-TV) - Action News 5 has obtained photos of the inside of the so-called "sex-bondage house" that is creating an uproar in Collierville. The house is owned by a Las Vegas corporation whose president is set to face a judge this week.

A website advertised the home at 273 Colbert as a place for "bondage, dominance, and sadomasochism," also known as BDSM.

Collierville Court records contain photos taken inside the house displayed on websites. The websites have since been shut down.

One photo depicts an, "extra large playroom." The photo shows black benches and chairs spread throughout the room. Leather gadgets are suspended from the ceiling.

The home, appraised at $750,000 dollars, is in the wealthy Shilling Farms neighborhood of Collierville. The back of the home faces a church. Shilling Farms Middle School is less than two-tenths of a mile away.

Another website says quote, "Safe, clean, comfortable, discrete and very classy, Zanthia House modular play stations allow nearly any fantasy to come to life."

The house is owned by Zanthia Group Incorporated. Nevada Annual Report lists James Williams as President of Zanthia Funding Group. The Group is based in Las Vegas.

Williams is set to face a judge Thursday for violating a court order to stop advertising the house.

Williams spoke to an Action News 5 reporter over the phone Saturday. He said the Zanthia House, "....doesn't exist, not yet any way."

He said he is looking for a producer to turn the Zanthia house into a reality TV show.

"It is a story about a place called the Zanthia house. Like I said, it's a television show," Williams said.

Earlier he told a Commercial Appeal reporter, "it's all just a research project for a screenplay."

Williams wouldn't talk about the plot for his TV show he called, "The Adventures of Zanthia House."

During a previous court appearance Williams pleaded guilty to violating a nuisance ordinance. He paid a fifty-dollar fine. A judge could now find him in contempt of court. He could face up to 10 days in jail "and or" a fifty dollar fine for every day he violated the order.
