This story out of the UK seems to making big headlines overseas. It involves the head of of the FIA, (International Automobile Federation) Max Mosley, who has apparently beclowned himself by taking part in a “sadomasochistic Nazi orgy” with five prostitutes that reportedly involved Nazi role-playing in a “torture chamber” in Chelsea.
Formula One’s governing body is keeping its distance from sexual allegations in a British tabloid newspaper about its president, Max Mosley.
“This is a matter between Mr. Mosley and the paper in question,” an International Automobile Federation (FIA) spokesman said.
The revelations are particularly damaging because Mr Mosley’s father, Oswald, was the pre-war leader of Britain’s fascist “blackshirts” who invited Adolf Hitler to his wedding.
Mr Mosley was said to have spoken in German and brandished a leather whip as he beat the women after allowing himself to be subjected to a humiliating inspection for lice. The News of the World said that Mr Mosley paid £2,500 cash for the prostitutes’ services.
The five-hour orgy ended with “the prostitutes drinking wine while Mr Mosley, 67, recovered his composure with a cup of tea”.
The revelations angered Jewish groups, who called for his resignation from one of the most powerful positions in world sport.
Motor racing insiders also questioned whether his position was tenable. The FIA does not simply administer Formula One but all other motor racing championships and even holds sway over road safety organisations such as the AA and RAC.
Video here. Warning!!!: not for the faint of heart…involves a lot of bending over and being spanked.
Kind of makes our country’s sex scandals look tame in comparison.
