Sleeping with prostitutes is legal in France if the girls are over 18 but some warn Mr Strauss-Kahn could face charges if the case expands to cover graft or procuring. The 10 French or Belgian women to whom police traced calls to Mr Strauss-Kahn, all claim to have had paid sex with him while he was IMF chief right up to his arrest last May on charges he tried to rape a New York hotel chambermaid. But in an intriguing line of defence, Mr Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer Henri Leclerc said his client could have been “totally unaware” that the women he met in swinger sessions were prostitutes. “At these parties, people were not necessarily dressed, and I defy you to tell the difference between a naked prostitute and any other naked woman,” he said.

    Wait, don't we know they are prostitutes because they are women?

    Sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and then a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show, ready to tag team your girlfriend.

    We know they are prostitues because they are willing to have sex with DSK.

  26. Posted by Stock Guy | January 17, 2012 at 3:58 AM

    I listened to his interviews and now I am reading his comments and I was wondering if someone could please tell me why DSK’s lawyer talks like he thinks DSK is innocent. You can defend a client without going to bat for him like you were both playing tennis at the time he was being accused of rape. As to the prostitution claims, since I’m assuming these women did not sleep with this sleazeball for free, nor would the average woman be going around saying she charged someone for sex, is this lawyer crazy?
