Dominique Strauss-Kahn boasts of his sex parties, showing we have an egomaniacal ruling class.
No sooner do I post about how the Clinton campaign might expose the pervertocracy we live under, than I find a Telegraph story about Strauss-Kahn’s testimony in his trial for pimping: “The rise and rise of the upmarket orgy.”
Before his arrest in 2011 for sexually assaulting a hotel maid in New York, many considered Dominique Strauss-Kahn to be living the dream.
The thrice-married head of the International Monetary Fund and father of four was a millionaire and serious contender for the French presidency. Highly connected, he had homes in Paris, Washington and Marrakech and a deal with Air France whereby he was always upgraded to first class.
He was also, as we learnt last week when he took the stand at his trial for aggravated pimping in Lille, northern France, a regular participant in sex parties in Paris, Brussels and Washington, described in an official French investigators’ report as “carnage on a pile of mattresses”.
But not that regular. “The prosecution gives the impression of unbridled activity,” Strauss-Kahn told the court. But really, he continued with a straight face: “There were only 12 parties in total – that is four per year over three years.” In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash, he was too busy “saving the world from catastrophe” for more, plus he had “difficult relations” with his (now-ex) wife, French journalist Anne Sinclair.
None of this is treated as a revelation of what kind or sickos gain power in our world at this time in history. It is all treated as a titillating lesson in how orgies have a long and honorable history going back to Greece and Rome. Yes they do; they are pagan.
Naturally, the rich and powerful who attend these events don’t want to take the time to organize them. So in some cases this gets outsourced to people who make the arrangements for a living. Such services are available for those who are young and good-looking enough. Other services are arranged by friends of the older and uglier. A businesswomen who deals in the former kind of “party” makes a telling statement in the Telegraph story:
“I hear about parties like these all the time, they’ve been going on for centuries,” says Emma Sayle, founder of Killing Kittens, which holds 14 upmarket sex parties a month in locations around the globe. Sayle considers the four-a-year tally to be “average” for her 50,000 members, though some attend one a week.
“Rich, powerful men have always been hedonistic and narcissistic, they love the thrill, and their egos are too huge to just be satisfied with their wives. They need that extra something. They’re too old and ugly to come to our parties, so they have their mates arrange their own affairs and bring in high-end prostitutes, some of whom are extremely beautiful.”
People who are narcissists and whose egos compel them to adultery are the last people who should get political power. Yet they seem drawn to it and capable of achieving it in our present society.
It also opens up all sorts of questions about political independence. If a man’s ego demands orgies then he is going to be influenced by those who supply such desires. And all of this will be kept secret from the public.
