DSK And The French Sexual Libertines

Dominique Strauss-Kahn - Strauss-Kahn meeting in Toulouse for the 2007 French presidential election 0032 2007-04-13 croppedDominique Strauss-Kahn, a/k/a DSK the French politician who fled New York after allegedly sexually abusing a hotel worker, can’t keep off the front page of the New York Times, which today entertains its readers with tales of swinger parties held for DSK where the main man would have sex with multiple partners, often including prostitutes:

More than a year after resigning in disgrace as the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn is seeking redemption with a new consulting company, the lecture circuit and a uniquely French legal defense to settle a criminal inquiry that exposed his hidden life as a libertine.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn, 63, a silver-haired economist, is seeking to throw out criminal charges in an inquiry into ties to a prostitution ring in northern France with the legal argument that the authorities are unfairly trying to “criminalize lust.”

That defense and the investigation, which is facing a critical judicial hearing in late November, have offered a keyhole view into a clandestine practice in certain powerful circles of French society: secret soirees with lawyers, judges, police officials, journalists and musicians that start with a fine meal and end with naked guests and public sex with multiple partners.

In France, “Libertinage” has a long history in the culture, dating from a 16th-century religious sect of libertines. But the most perplexing question in the Strauss-Kahn affair is how a career politician with ambition to lead one of Europe’s most powerful nations was blinded to the possibility that his zest for sex parties could present a liability, or risk blackmail.

The exclusive orgies called “parties fines” — lavish Champagne affairs costing around $13,000 each — were organized as a roving international circuit from Paris to Washington by businessmen seeking to ingratiate themselves with Mr. Strauss-Kahn. Some of that money, according to a lawyer for the main host, ultimately paid for prostitutes because of a shortage of women at the mixed soirees orchestrated largely for the benefit of Mr. Strauss-Kahn, who sometimes sought sex with three or four women…”

    what a monkey, a horse, a bankster and a whore
    do in the privacy of their bedroom is fine
    when government funds and bribes are used to pay for it
    it’s everybody’s business and it’s a crime

    and this dude is merely the tip of the iceberg

    Almost everyone who gets a little bit of power starts down the road of corruption.

    Those with a lot of power travel the superhighway of corruption.

    Then when they get caught, all of a sudden they’re “ashamed.”

    I’d have more respect for these guys if they just openly said: “I’m a rich guy and I like to fuck a lot, and I can talk women into it. Usually via my wallet. What’s wrong with that?”

    Instead they pretend they never fuck anyone but their wives.

    The world, it seems, has always been fueled by bullshit.

    There is a difference between criminalising lust and society trying to protect itself from psychopaths.
