As a high-earning money manager for the Soros Fund — Howard Rubin has it all. He and His wife, Mary, were known for their generosity on the city’s philanthropy circuit; from 2015 to 2016, the couple gave nearly $500,000 to charitable causes.
But there was one other real-estate holding he kept hidden: a luxurious midtown Manhattan penthouse, outfitted with blow-up photos of Playboy models and, apparently, all manner of BDSM paraphernalia.
It is in this secret sex dungeon that Rubin, now 66, is accused of having committed violent acts and sexual assault against a number of women, including actual Playboy playmates. A civil trial, with six of his seven alleged victims seeking at least $18 million, is scheduled for November.
He is alleged to have paid his partners as much as $5,000 for each BDSM session. But, the women claim, they did not agree to the degree of abuse and degradation Rubin inflicted.
One of the plaintiffs claims that, while she was bound and vulnerable in Rubin’s lair, he told her “I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter” and then, according to the complaint, forced sex on her against her will. (Rubin has three children with his estranged wife, including at least one daughter.)
“I thought he was a nice guy. He was a nebbishy Jewish guy and totally normal. I was surprised to hear about him having that apartment [with a sex dungeon],” said a trader who worked with Rubin.
