An Italian porn star has claimed that she had enjoyed a steamy threesome with former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
Natasha Kiss, 38, who is said to have met Strauss-Kahn at a private members strip club in Paris, said he was ‘gentle and sweet’, adding that she remembered him most for ‘his cuddles’.
Kiss, who has starred in dozens of erotic films, described how she had nicknamed the Frenchman Ghengis Khan - the ruthless 12th century Mongol warlord emperor.
“I thought long and hard about speaking. When I saw him in the newspapers and on the television, treated worse than a killer, then I decided to speak out,” the Daily Mail quoted the actress, whose real name is Michelle Conti, as telling Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera in an interview.
“We met in a private club in Paris four or five years ago. He shook my hand and very clearly said his name. I nicknamed him Genghis Khan - the only difference between then and now is his hair, it was speckled now its whiter,” she said.
“He was in the club like everyone else there, he wanted to have a drink, a dance and if you feel like it go off with someone. In Paris, like everywhere else in the world, you can decide at any moment to flirt - not like Italy,” she added.
When asked why Strauss-Kahn had begun to flirt with her, Kiss, who boasts on her website that ‘sex is her reason for living’ said: “He was very sweet. I was with friends and he was on his own. He tried to attract the attention of an older distinguished lady but she gave him a look which said she was not interested so he just smiled back at her.”
“He tried with others but with no luck. What attracted me to him was the fact he was such a gentleman despite all the rebuttals he got. He then approached me and he got it together with a friend and myself,” she added.
Kiss, who says on her website she makes porn movies ''for passion not the money'' adding she likes ''extreme sex'' went on: “He wasn't randy or woman hungry like people are making him out.”
“He was very gentle, educated and not a dribbling dog as can often happen - in fact he treated us both very sweetly, he cuddled me and that''s what stuck in my mind,” she said.
“I was in Paris for a week and I went to that club every night - he came three or four times. One evening he came really late, we chatted for a bit then we all went back home to sleep,” she added.
When asked what her impression of Strauss-Kahn was she said: “I have no doubt that he is a very nice person, it''s disgusting what he is being put through.”
“Dominique does not need to rape a woman - if he wants he can just pay an escort or do as he did in Paris and go to a private club to enjoy himself for a bit. He is just a libertine.”
''I know men. The emotional sexual side, if it''s like that is like that. He is not violent, the picture that has been described of him is not him, as I say I still remember his cuddles,” she added.
