Silvio Berlusconi listens to a priest giving a blessing to a highway project near Brescia in northern Italy yesterday
A day after Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian Prime Minister, sought to make light of allegations about his encounters with a prostitute, sensational new audio tapes and transcripts were released today purportedly recorded while they were having sex.
In the third series of tapes and transcripts to be published by the left-leaning weekly L’Espresso this week, the escort Patrizia D’Addario is recorded apparently telling Mr Berlusconi that it is several months since she had sex and that a younger man would have already had an orgasm "by now".
Mr Berlusconi is then recorded purportedly telling Ms D’Addario that "you should have sex with yourself, you should touch yourself often".
The date of the alleged encounter is not included with the audiotape released on the magazine’s website but Ms D’Addario was allegedly hired by the businessman Gianpaolo Tarantini to go to the prime minister’s official residence in Rome, Palazzo Grazioli, in October and November last year.
The transcript included this exchange:
PD A young man would have come in a second.. I mean he would have come... Young men usually have a lot of pressure.
SB But if you will you allow me... (muffled) I believe it is a family thing.
SB Having an orgasm.
PD You know how long it has been since I had sex this way like with you tonight. It’s several months, since I broke with my boyfriend. Is this normal?
SB May I? You should have sex with yourself. You should touch yourself often.
