Sex

He-Wolf of the FIA

|

I do not expect to read a better lede this year:

Max Mosley, one of the most powerful men in world sport, was under pressure to resign as boss of Formula One's governing body last night after he was exposed enjoying a Nazi-style orgy with five prostitutes.

Mosley is the son of Oswald Mosley, founder of the Nazi-era British Union of Fascists. The "Nazi-style orgy" involved…well, let's go back to the story in the London Times:

The Oxford-educated former barrister, who is president of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), reenacted a concentration camp scene in which he played the role of both guard and inmate.

Speaking in German and brandishing a leather whip, he beat the women after allowing himself to be subjected to a humiliating inspection for lice and an interrogation in chains.

That's surprisingly egalitarian for a totalitarian torture fantasy. I don't think Mosley Sr. believed the guards and prisoners should have a chance to trade places. Progress!

  1. I’m disappointed that Spitzer didn’t do this, it seems like it would have been right up his alley.

  2. I’m sorry, but a kinky orgy with five high class hookers for only the equivalent of $5,000? I’d let this man manage my organization’s budget any day

  3. Spitzer, with his public salary, could only afford one hooker. If you want 5 hookers you need to go to the private sector.

  4. Our politicians’ kinky highjinks suck compared to the limeys. Step up to the plate, future Spitzers!

  5. Aren’t the FIA involved in a libel case against the Sunday Times (News Corp), which has the same ownership as News of the Screws (News Corp)? Humm.

    Regardless, it is a shocking invasion of privacy against a guy who hasn’t broken any laws. Regarding the Nazi fetish, there was nary a swastika in site.

  6. make that sight …

  7. Regarding the Nazi fetish, there was nary a swastika in sight.

    In sight? You were there?

    dbcooper, you have some ‘splaining to do 🙂

  8. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

  9. Mosley is the son of Oswald Mosley, founder of the Nazi-era British Union of Fascists

    … and better known to P.G. Wodehouse aficionados as Roderick Spode, whom Bertie Wooster described as follows:

    The trouble with you, Spode, is that just because you have succeeded in inducing a handful of half-wits to disfigure the London scene by going about in black shorts, you think you’re someone. You hear them shouting “Heil, Spode!” and you imagine it is the Voice of the People. That is where you make your bloomer. What the Voice of the People is saying is: “Look at that frightful ass Spode swanking about in footer bags! Did you ever in your puff see such a perfect perisher?”

  10. The original article, with a lot of detail on the orgy is here. At least Mosley got a better deal than Spitzer – 5 hookers for the price of one.

  11. In sight? You were there?

    dbcooper, you have some ‘splaining to do 🙂

    Heh. News of the Screws had a video and photos up on their website.

  12. dbcooper,

    Seems a fair service to Formula One fans to report on why the chief might step down.

  13. It’s good to know that P.G. Wodehouse fanatics have gained control of Wikipedia. Judging from the link, half the site is now taken up with Woosterian arcana. I’ve always wanted a reproduction of the Infant Samuel at Prayer and now I may get my chance.

  14. If he had been exposed having a Charles De Gaulle-esque orgy with 5 hookers, they would be clamoring for him to run for president.

  15. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

    Well, there’s always the middle way of “I don’t care.”

  16. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

    “This” being what? Prostitution? Sado-masochism? Nazi fantasies? Formula 1 racing?

  17. I met a British girl once who wondered why all men were into being flogged.

    “They are?” I asked surprised.

    “You mean, you’re not?” she said, just as surprised.

    I blame/credit the schools.

  18. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

    It’s his business.
    Perople are freetocomplain and boycott.
    The F?d?ration Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) is free to fire his dumbass.

  19. Let this be a lesson to all of you. For godsake, Keep your nazi-fetish orgy photos behind a firewall!

  20. Oh no! Lonewacko got into my keyboard.

  21. It’s good to know that P.G. Wodehouse fanatics have gained control of Wikipedia. Judging from the link, half the site is now taken up with Woosterian arcana. I’ve always wanted a reproduction of the Infant Samuel at Prayer and now I may get my chance.

    Then again, it being Wikipedia, there’s little reason to trust its reliability. In the Wikipedia entry for Bertie Wooster, for example, one finds the outlandishly false claim, “Even so, Bertie is actually of average or slightly above-average intelligence.” However marginally brighter Bertie may be than some of his fellow Drones Club members, there can be little serious doubt that he is, as Jeeves candidly noted in the Junior Ganymede club book, “mentally negligible.”

  22. The original article, with a lot of detail on the orgy is here. At least Mosley got a better deal than Spitzer – 5 hookers for the price of one.

    No wonder this guy was so into the kink-age. Did you see the picture of his wife?

    Wakka wakka wakka…

  23. My TIVO is already set up to record the Friday practice session of the next Formula One. The commentators’ comments should be interesting this week.

  24. Ohno! Lonewacko gotinto mykeyboard.

    Fixed!

  25. Nazi-style orgy

    Nazi-style orgy

    Nazi-style orgy

  26. I like the basis of his libel action –

    “Max Mosley, the president of the FIA, has said that he spoke in German during a sado-masochistic orgy with five prostitutes not because he was fantasising about being a Nazi but because several of the prostitutes involved were German speakers.”

  27. Why is this even being covered here?

  28. Warren,

    Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but saying it three times won’t make it happen.

    This in not Beetlejuice.

  29. Taktix?,
    I know, but a thing like ‘Nazi-style orgy’ just can’t be repeated often enough.

  30. Isn’t there a war on or something?

  31. ed,
    No, we won the war. Now there’s just a big hole in the Mid East that we throw blood and money into.

  32. I took my handle from a certain Wodehouse character!

  33. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

    As a libertarian, I am

    (1) against the state prosecuting him for having a Nazi-style orgy;

    (2) in favor of FIA making its own decision about whether to keep him on; and

    (3) personally uninterested in participating in a Nazi-style orgy.

  34. there’s just a big hole in the Mid East that we throw blood and money into.

    Yay! Isn’t there one in Iowa too? And Alaska? And New Orleans? And…..

  35. So as libertarians, are we for or against this?

    I am all for everything in this story, except for prosecuting the guy (if that is in there) and F1 in general (I am a NASCAR/NHRA guy).

    Nazi orgies, fine by me.

  36. Is this what Rev. Wright was talking about when he said “ridin’ dirty”?

  37. The president of Formula One decides to re-enact The Night Porter (or possibly Ilsa, She-Wolf of the S.S.), and the next thing you know, he’s plastered all over the broadsheets, to say nothing of the tabloids. What is the world coming to?

  38. Holy shit.

  39. Nazi-style; that’s just how we roll….

  40. Why is this even being covered here?

    Because only once in a lifetime do you get to reference “Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS” in a headline. Thanks, JW, for making the world a shinier, happier place.

  41. Franklin Harris beat me, as it were, to the punch. Whatever… [kicks pebble, walks offscreen dejectedly]

  42. Mosley is the son of Oswald Mosley, founder of the Nazi-era British Union of Fascists

    …better known as the subject of Elvis Costello’s “Less Than Zero”.

  43. The only thing I can think of after reading this article is “Holy Shit… the guy is 67 years old, and he did 5 hookers in 5 hours!”

    Isn’t there a medal for that or something?
    If there isn’t, there sure as hell should be.

  44. Isn’t there a medal for that or something?

    I think it is a pill now.

  45. ” personally uninterested in participating in a Nazi-style orgy”

    Nazi is such an ugly word.

    I prefer “an orgy with designer fashions by Hugo Boss”.

  46. I suspect the story might have been written differently if the ladies were wearing Mao jackets or Soviet Red Army belt buckles.

  47. I don’t think Mosley Sr. believed the guards and prisoners should have a chance to trade places.

    But I don’t think Mosley Sr. contemplated concentration camps, either.

  48. “I suspect the story might have been written differently if the ladies were wearing Mao jackets or Soviet Red Army belt buckles.”

    Maybe, but that could be easily spun as being part of a freaky James Bond fantasy. “Do your worst, Pussy Galore!” A 60-something Brit might well get away with that.

    But when your dad had Hitler at his wedding, well, there’s really no good way to spin a Nazi concentration camp-themed B&D orgy.

  49. It occurs to me that a little more pop-culture knowledge would have saved Mosley.

    The whole media narrative would be thrown awry if the video showed him wearing a ‘V’ mask.

  50. Ron Dennis might be reconsidering his plans for retirement.

  51. Wow! Five hookers in a Nazi-style orgy! The most I’ve ever done was three hookers dressed as Ayn Rand with cigarette holders and latex capes. They would mock me for my irrationality.

  52. Brandybuck, have you tried this script?

    (Your post requires I quote a Jennifer classic:)

    “Listen, you altruistic marry-me-so-I’m-not-deported piece of shit, I want you to dominate and subdue me, like a real man! Right now! You’ve got ten minutes, loser, and if I haven’t been forced to surrender to your superior male will by then I’ll fucking emasculate you. Stop cowering like that, you pussy!”

  53. Oh, I can’t believe I missed this earlier! As a huge F1 fan and nearly as huge Mosley detractor, this is just too good to be true! My only dismay is to learn that he has stated he intends to stay on as FIA president. I can only hope that option is denied to him or he comes to his senses and resigns. He has been an authoritarian prick forever in his F1 role so the Nazi bit isn’t all that surprising. Just listening to the smug arrogance in his endless pronouncements of just what F1 “needs” is enough to make one vomit, much less his gloating over being able to force his nonsense down everyone’s throat (was that in the video?) in F1 simply because he has the power to do so whenever anyone dares to question the wisdom of his edicts. He has been single-handedly trying to destroy F1 for well over a decade with his megalomanical dictating exactly what is needed to “fix” (read ruin) F1. Someone needs to stop this guy before he completes his plan to take F1 from the pinnacle of racing engineering and technology to a dumbed-down spec series. Seriously, with Mosley I wouldn’t be surprised to end up with some gawd-awful NASCAR-esque stock push-rod, carbureted 1960’s era engine technology all in some ill-advised attempt to “reduce costs.”

    Libertarian disclaimer: yes, he should be free to cavort with prostitutes dressed as Goebbels himself, if he wants, and F1 fans should be free to ridicule him into retirement for it.

  54. I suspect the story might have been written differently if the ladies were wearing Mao jackets or Soviet Red Army belt buckles.

    Well of course, but commie BDSM just doesn’t work. The uniforms are drab, and there’s no leather involved. Face it, the only reason people have Nazi sex fetishes is because SS uniforms are ready-made S&M gear. The leather, the shiny black boots, the suspenders … makes me need to take a cold shower just thinking about it.

    Um, forget I said anything.

  55. (Your post requires I quote a Jennifer classic:)

    “Listen, you altruistic marry-me-so-I’m-not-deported piece of shit, I want you to dominate and subdue me, like a real man! Right now! You’ve got ten minutes, loser, and if I haven’t been forced to surrender to your superior male will by then I’ll fucking emasculate you. Stop cowering like that, you pussy!”

    Damn, that was hot!

    I mean, um, forget I said anything again.

  56. Isn’t it rather a Nazi-themed orgy than a Nazi-style orgy? Is it even known what made an orgy a la Nazi?

  57. But maybe I’m just some sort of person who is strict about language. For lack of a better term.

  58. For lack of a better term.

    Pedant?

  59. as an Englishmen who was privately educated (as i assume this man was) i feel this quote is needed:

    “a [British] private education only gives you two things; a good job, and a taste in perverse sexual fantasy’s. thats why British management is so inefficient, there all too busy having there dicks slamed in draws, and playing ‘Panzer commander and the milk maid'”

    – Alexi Sayle – the young ones.

  60. Is it even known what made an orgy a la Nazi?

    Everybody dies at the end?

  61. I just want v12’s and active hydraulic suspension back. 8(

    And 70s-era six wheeled 1200hp turboed monsters. Add some water injection and they ought to be able to do 1500hp with 2.5 liters and a properly sized turbo, I recon.

    That’s MY sexual fantasy!

  62. Finally saw a clip of the video. The discussion is much hotter than the reality.

  63. heh2k-

    They were getting 1500hp (in qualifying trim) with 1.5 liter motors. And if the rods weren’t hanging out the bottom on the in-lap, they’d turn up the boost.

  64. Well of course, but commie BDSM just doesn’t work.

    Soviet-style BDSM is the worst. You have to wait in line for three hours with hundreds of other people just to get a half-hearted slap on the face.
