In the latest development in the Max Mosley saga, a judge has ruled that a YouTube video of the Formula One boss spanking and being spanked by prostitutes should not be banned.
This can surely only be of any interest to a few 5-year olds who haven’t already seen it. But amongst all the controversy and lurid headlines, at least one important point has been established, and largely agreed upon. If this had been an ordinary 5 hour sado-masochistic orgy with hookers in a London dungeon, it would have been perfectly ok!
It was the Nazi element which people were repulsed by, and led to calls for the son of wartime fascist leader Oswald Mosley to resign his post as Formula One supremo.
It’s no wonder then that The News of the World were at pains to substantiate their Nazi claims in a follow-up interview with one of the girls hired to take part in the session.
The interview goes into quite a bit of practical detail about how the arrangements were made, and what Mosley demanded:
Mistress Switch said she herself would be wielding the cane on Max, flogging him with full force 15 times after strapping him to a bench. It was all carefully worked out beforehand. Max had given Mistress Switch £2,500 to sort out the whole scenario and she briefed us all on his requirements.
A client never hands out that sort of cash without saying EXACTLY what he expects. He doesn’t just say, ‘Look, there’s a bundle of cash, just do what you fancy.’
“And Max certainly didn’t say, ‘Tickle my bum with a feather and sing me to sleep to the strains of Mary Had a Little Lamb!’
“I know, let’s play the Mosley Game”
These days getting the name of a famous person and the word ‘spanking’ into a headline doesn’t seem to have sufficient shock factor. Add ‘nazi’ and ‘hookers’ into the mix however, and you’re starting to look at some big sales figures.
But Mosley has so far wethered the storm, and public outrage seems to be gradually dissolving into public ridicule and amusement. It’s got to be the biggest spanking news story of 2008, and thousands of “non-kinky” people have been viewing a consensual S&M session on their computers.
A good opportunity I would imagine for many to “sound out” their partner’s attitude to the subject.
Young attractive TV personalities such as Di Stewart (left) and Natalie Pinkham (above right) must have watched it too – as part of their jobs as sports presenters with FIVE and Sky Sports News respectively.
They are good friends and like going on holiday together. If this is what they get up to on the beach, goodness knows what goes on behind closed doors:
“You must haf more of ze punishment!!”
Perhaps the News of the World should investigate.
