The poor sap who had his penis glued to his stomach recounted the awful night while on the stand yesterday.

Donessa Davis said he initally thought the motel excursion with one of his girlfriends, Therese Ziemann, was bondage fantasy come true ... just before it turned into a penis-gluing nightmare.

Things went from hot to humiliating when his wife, a second girlfriend and another woman burst into the room and harassed him because of his cheating ways.

"The rest came in and the hurting trip began," said Davis, who testified in shackles because he is jailed in an unrelated case on theft and child abuse charges. "It got chaotic real quick, real fast. ... I was asking everybody in the room to cut me loose."

He said during the incident, which lasted about 30 minutes, he was punched in the face twice before the woman he had gone to the motel to meet, Therese Ziemann, super glued his penis to his stomach while at least two of the other women watched, the man said.

"I was telling them, you can't let her do it. This is assault," the man testified.

The judge ruled there was enough evidence for the case to go to trial.

Ziemann, 48, of Menasha, Wendy Sewell, 43, of Kaukauna, Michelle Belliveau, 43, of Neenah and the man's 30-year-old wife are each charged with being party to felony false imprisonment, a felony. Ziemann is also charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree sexual assault in the gluing incident.

Belliveau pleaded not guilty to the charge Tuesday. The others asked for time to file motions before entering pleas.

All the women except the man's wife glared at him during his nearly 90 minutes of testimony. They all declined to comment on their way out of court.

The man testified that he had developed sexual relationships with Ziemann and Sewall, but that Sewell had mentioned ending things in late July. He knew Belliveau because she was Ziemann's sister.

The man said he agreed to be tied to the bed because he and Ziemann had talked about bondage and he had agreed to pay for some nice fabric she would buy to tie him.

He said he was startled by a knock at the door, and worried it might be Ziemann's husband. He realized the "fun had stopped" after his wife and the other women entered the room.

The man testified that his wife was the first to leave, and that the others left "in a panic" when he began to struggle free of his bonds. It took him another 2-3 minutes to get free and run naked outside and seek help, he said.

Sewell's attorney, Nila Robinson, said she would seek to have the charge against her client dismissed because of a lack of evidence.

"The inference that she was a participant in restraining (the man) is not justified. Just standing around is not enough," Robinson said.

She called the man dishonest, a liar and a con man. He tricked the women he called his girlfriends by telling them he loved them and wanted futures with them, Robinson said.

Attorneys for the other women said there were no plea bargain talks under way with prosecutors, and that they intend to fight the charges.
