A new biography claims Dominique Strauss-Kahn had "precipitous but consensual" sex with Nafissatou Diallo, and that it was her come-hither expression that sparked the encounter.
Excerpts of DSK Affairs: The Second Inquiry appeared in Paris Match this week, and a number of English-language outlets have translated parts of them. The AP has what author Michel Taubmann claims is DSK's version of events in the Sofitel hotel room. Taubmann writes that Diallo walked in on Strauss-Kahn naked, then "started walking toward the exit. But she wasn't in any hurry. She stares him in the eyes. Then, she looks openly at his genitals." And then:
The flesh is weak. Dominique Strauss-Kahn saw a proposition. The situation amuses him. Rarely in his life has he refused a moment of pleasure. He does not resist the temptation to receive oral sex. The act is fast, very fast.
You know how it is — one minute, a woman is looking at you, the next she's giving you a blowjob. What can you do? The book also quotes Strauss-Kahn as admitting to an "uninhibited sex life," but arguing that this is normal in politics. Sadly, this is kind of true. The former IMF chief also denies charges of involvement in a prostitution ring: "In the press, they link my name to prostitution. It's unbearable. I did go to sex parties, it's true, but usually those who came to these soirees were not prostitutes." It looks like DSK is taking a cue from Silvio Berlusconi — can revelations of bunga bunga be far behind?
