F1 chief Mosley: 'I love to be spanked; KINKY.
MOTOR racing supremo Max Mosley yesterday admitted being a lover of S&M and corporal punishment.
Mosley, 68, the son of 1930s fascist leader Sir Oswald, told the High Court in London he had kept it secret from his wife Jean for 45 years.
He admitted using the services of professional dominatrixes - and on one occasion being hit with a cane until he bled.
But, speaking on the first day of his case against the News of the World, he said the activities were innocent fun.
He claims his privacy was breached when details of an "orgy" involving him and five women at a Chelsea flat were revealed in the paper.
The boss of FIA, Formula One's governing body, dismissed claims the sexual acts involved "Nazi role-play".
But Mosley admitted that he paid pounds 2,500 to be whipped by a dominatrix and to beat other women.
Asked if sadomasochism involved role-play, Mosley replied: "Very much so. It adds to the atmosphere of the fantasy. There is nothing depraved. It is perfectly harmless providing it is between consenting adults who want to do it and is in private."
The case continues.
