Keith Ord told three very different stories about his alleged experiences with Sathya Sai Baba to Alexandra Nagel, Van der Eijk and David Bailey. All three stories are riddled with contradictions and unexplained discrepancies.
In Alexandra Nagel's diary notes, she claimed that in 1990 she personally met Keith Ord and he told her that Sathya Sai Baba materialized oil, rubbed it on his testicles and embraced him. In her diary notes, Alexandra Nagel made no mention to Keith's amazing account that Baba miraculously transformed his penis into a vagina (who would forget to write something like that down?). However, in Alexandra Nagel's Shiva-Shakti paper, she talked about Keith Ord having 3 interviews with Sathya Sai Baba, 2 of them privately. Nagel related how Baba allegedly hugged and kissed Keith and how, in his third and last interview, Baba took Keith's hand and placed it on his midsection. Nagel said Keith told her that he could feel Baba's penis through his robe but when Baba had Keith touch his midsection a second time, there was no penis but a vagina. Baba allegedly said, "This is Divinity" and asked Keith not to speak about it.
Keith Ord told his story to a Dutch journalist named Van der Eijk in an article entitled "De Wonderdoener". In his talk with Van Der Eijk, Keith Ord said that Sathya Sai Baba called him for a private interview and told him he thought too much about girls. Keith made no mention to Sathya Sai Baba playing with his penis at all. Then in his second private interview (not his 3rd, as stated by Alexandra Nagel), Baba took Keith's hand and put it on his midsection. Keith said that Baba was not a hermaphrodite but that he literally and miraculously changed his penis into a vagina. Keith Ord expressed wonder at this and said that Sathya Sai Baba was someone who lived on a level other than us mortals.
In Keith Ord's letter to David Bailey, he claimed that he had 3 interviews with Sathya Sai Baba, each having a private interview. This contradicted the 2 private interviews that Keith claimed he had when he related his experiences to Alexandra Nagel.
In his letter to David Bailey, Keith claimed that in his first private interview with Sathya Sai Baba the guru allegedly played with his penis and scrotum and told him that he thought too much about girls. This story almost matched the story Keith told Van der Eijk. However, in Keith's story to Van der Eijk, he never mentioned Baba playing with his penis or scrotum, just that he thought too much about girls. This contradicted Alexandra Nagel's account in which she claimed Keith told her that he did not have a private session in his first interview.
Keith's account, as related to David Bailey, about his second private interview with Sathya Sai Baba completely contradicted the account he gave to Van der Eijk. In Keith's account with Van der Eijk, he said that it was in his second private interview that Baba transformed his penis into a vagina. According to Alexandra Nagel, it was the in his third private interview, not his second. In Keith Ord's letter to David Bailey, in his second interview Baba materialized a ring, played with Keith's penis and rubbed his body against Keith's. This allegedly lasted about 10 minutes and then Baba told Keith to pull up his trousers because he had other devotees to see. Baba did not manifest a vagina in this second private interview (as Keith Ord originally told Van der Eijk).
Keith Ord then related his experiences (to David Bailey) about his third interview with Sathya Sai Baba in which he got another private interview. Again, Keith alleged that Baba touched his penis, rubbed his body against Keith's and allegedly asked Keith if he wanted to kiss him. Then, the story almost mirrors the story he told Van der Eijk, but with no mention of Sathya Sai Baba manifesting a vagina. Keith Ord said that Baba pulled him to his chair and he could see Baba's semi-erect penis through his gown material. Baba allegedly took Keith's hand and placed it on his penis and said, "good, good, good" over and over until he became visibly aroused. Then Baba clapped his hands over his head saying, "This is Divine" and the personal, private session ended. No mention to Sathya Sai Baba manifesting a vagina.
Therefore, Keith claimed (to Nagel) that Baba manifested a vagina in his 3rd interview. Keith then claimed (to Van der Eijk) that Baba manifested a vagina in his 2nd interview. Keith made no mention (to David Bailey) about Baba manifesting a vagina at all.
As a matter of fact, Anti-Sai Sites do not list Keith Ord's story in their sexual abuse section. Why? Probably because Keith talked about Sathya Sai Baba literally morphing his penis into a vagina. Keith specifically said that Baba was not a hermaphrodite, but that he literally changed his penis into a vagina. Of course, this claim makes Keith Ord's alleged sexual encounter, with Sathya Sai Baba sound absolutely crazy and that is why it is not listed under ExBaba's sexual abuse section. Furthermore, David Bailey accepted Keith Ord's story, but snipped out the "penis turned vagina" section because David Bailey knew it would cast serious doubt on Keith Ord's credibility. If Keith Ord's testimony is seen as being unbelievable (because of the genital switch story), why is Alaya Rahm's not seen as being the same (Alaya claimed the same thing: Reference)?
Alexandra Nagel said she met Keith, but only referred to him as "K" in her diary notes. Despite mentioning the name of two other witnesses he spoke to, Keith made no mention to Alexandra Nagel in his letter to David Bailey. If either Alexandra Nagel or Keith Ord would have mentioned each other in the original letters, they could have corroborated stories. Nagel also told me that she and Keith read Tal Brooke's "Lord of the Air". Since Keith did not initially tell Nagel about the penis turned vagina story (Nagel made no mention to this story in her diary notes), it seems that Keith lifted this story from Brooke's book.
Futhermore, Keith Ord failed to tell David Bailey that Michael Pender was HIV+. This would mean that Sathya Sai Baba allegedly had sex with Michael Pender at least 10 times (15 times if you believe Keith Ord). The Times of London specifically stated that Michael Pender sought out Sathya Sai Baba with the hope of being cured of his HIV. Consequently, Baba was aware that Michael Pender was HIV+. Why would Sathya Sai Baba allegedly engage in oral sex with Michael Pender (at least 10 times, maybe more) if he knew Pender was HIV infected? This sounds utterly and completely improbable.
It is also important to point out that Keith Ord was 25 years old in 1990 and an adult when he had his alleged interactions with Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
On November 25th 2005, Keith Ord e-mailed me and said he would clarify the discrepancies in the stories he related about Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. To date (this article being updated on April 27th 2007), Keith Ord has not e-mailed me again with any clarifications.
It might surprise some to know that I personally met Keith Ord in the early 90's just after he had his 3 interviews with Sathya Sai Baba. Keith started a fashion trend at Puttaparthi by making shirts out of sari material (in our e-mail correspondence, Keith was shocked I remembered this fact).
Keith Ord and I had about four in-depth and private talks about his interviews with Sathya Sai Baba. Needless to say, Keith Ord never mentioned anything about Sathya Sai Baba oiling him, embracing him or transforming his genitals from male to female, etc. However, Keith Ord did talk to me about his disillusionment with Sathya Sai Baba and continually compared and contrasted him with Jesus Christ. Keith made it very clear to me that he was a devoted Catholic and continually praised Jesus in our private conversations. Although our talks were private, and Keith Ord was very open and blunt about his disillusionment with Sathya Sai Baba, he never alluded to any kind of sexual impropriety with him. Not even once.
Sathya Sai Baba manifested a silver-type, rectangular lotus ring (with an enamel picture in the center) for Keith Ord that was initially so loose on his finger, it kept slipping off. As Keith's disillusionment with Sathya Sai Baba strenghened, the ring became tighter and tighter to the point that Keith could no longer remove the ring. I saw the ring myself and Keith's inability to remove it. It is important to point out that Keith and I had our in-depth and private talks after his 3 interviews in which he later claimed that Sathya Sai Baba touched him inappropriately and that Baba miraculoulsy tranformed his genitals from male to female.
Keith Ord never divulged to me that he was a homosexual. After Keith Ord emailed me in 2005, I researched his email (to make sure he was who he claimed he was) and found that he had several public profiles on the internet on gay-related websites (Ref). Although I personally hold no ill will towards anyone belonging to the GLBT community, I was rather shocked considering that Anti-Sai Activists love to discredit others based on their perceived (not known) sexual oreintation. As a matter of fact, Tony O'Clery and Sanjay Dadlani ceaselessly refer to Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Sai Proponents as "faggots", "poofs", "gays", "lesbians", "pedophile groupies" and "homosexuals" (among numerous other disgusting word combinations). I'm not sure why ex-devotees do this considering that Conny Larsson is a self-professed bisexual and Sanjay Dadlani attempted to write gay slurs against me (anonymously) using graphic homosexual language and imagery that a straight person (in my opinion) would never use (Ref).
