Max Mosley admitted in court yesterday that he's been into sadomasochism for 45 years, the Guardian reports, but firmly denied taking part in a Nazi-themed orgy. The British auto-racing boss is suing a tabloid for invading his privacy by secretly filming him being spanked and humiliated in role-playing with five women dressed as prisoners and guards. He said the Mosley session was a private "party," and there was no public interest in reporting it.
The head of Formula One's governing body and son of a fascist leader active in Britain in the 1930s, Mosley said he found Nazi role-play "very unerotic," adding that the costumes were merely "fancy dress" and very different from concentration-camp uniforms. He told the court that German accents in one scenario resulted from the fact that one of the women was German.
