(Newser) – Eliot Spitzer, rape fantasist? A call-girl who serviced the former New York governor says he liked to role-play a physical struggle and pin her down by the neck before they had sex, the New York Post reports. In her book, Call Girl Confidential, blonde escort Rebecca Woodard describes her $1,500 encounters with Spitzer at her "in-call" Manhattan apartment. "The more struggle there was, the more he was into it," she writes. In fact, she agreed to follow a dialogue in which she pretended to have just finished a self-defense class. She would "control him initially," but he'd soon take over.

"He wasn’t squeezing" her neck, she explains. "He was pushing down. I was on my back. I don’t know if he was trying to really hurt me, but he was. ... I’ve been through a lot. But at this point I was starting to get worried." Woodard claims he also sweated so badly that she dubbed him "Governor Shvitzer" to a friend. He did leave her a big tip, though. Woodard says she became a prostitute to pay for a custody battle against a "rock star"—unnamed in the book, but news reports say she took Spin Doctors lead singer Chris Barron to court in 2005 for allegedly kidnapping their daughter.
