A friend alerted me to this article by Doreen Carvajal and Maïa de la Baume in the NYT:
‘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.’
(Read the complete article here.)
One could not object to soirees that start with a fine meal and end with naked guests, as long as the naked guests are consenting adults, that is.
DSK deserves a novel, but I’m not sure if I’m going to write that novel.
