(Newser) – A call girl has charged that disgraced former New York governor Eliot Spitzer "went too far" when he choked her during kinky role-playing sex, reports the New York Daily News. Spitzer, who was state attorney general at the time, "wanted a scenario where I was supposed to say I had just been to a self-defense class," the hooker said.  "He was supposed to respond, 'Let's see if you learned anything,' and he would be aggressive."

As they play grappled, Spitzer "pinned me to the bed" than "grabbed my throat," she said. "I've never been worried about my safety, but I was really concerned." She finally managed to push him off, and she called the session at an end. The call girl doesn't believe Spitzer intended to harm her, but he didn't bother asking if she was ok. An attorney for Spitzer blasted the story as untrue.
