It has everything -- hookers, handcuffs, erotic photo shoots and a fallen scalp-tatted celebrity who's freedom is on the line -- welcome to the Boy George Handcuffed a Hooker Trial -- Day 1!!!

Hours ago, a London jury heard opening arguments from the prosecutor, who claimed the ex-Culture Clubber, real name George O'Dowd, hired a male model (who happened to moonlight as a male escort) to come to his home where he allegedly did the following things:

-- took erotic photographs of the male model

-- accused male model of screwing with a computer in the house

-- got a friend to help handcuff male escort and chain him to a hook in the bedroom

-- struggled with male escort, until man-whore broke free and ran away to cops.

George is facing charges of assault and false imprisonment and could get up to life in prison. Stay tuned for updates!
