Sex club named ‘DSK’ after fallen Frenchman

One-time French presidential hopeful Dominique Strauss-Kahn's name was the subject of attention once again this week after an infamous French pimp used the disgraced former IMF head’s initials as inspiration for the name of his new sex club.

The former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who saw his presidential hopes shattered after being arrested on charges of raping a New York City hotel maid in 2011, suffered more sex-related indignities this week.

Infamous French pimp Dominique Alderweireld, widely known as Dodo la Saumure, who has been charged with providing prostitutes to Strauss-Kahn, or DSK as he is known in France, unveiled his new Belgian strip club/brothel this week, the Dodo Sex Klub, or just DSK, named in honor of his alleged former client.

“It’s an allusion [to DSK] and it’s bringing me publicity. Business-wise, it’s excellent, it’s fabulous because everybody’s talking about DSK,” Alderweireld  told French media.

He added: “DSK will employ seven girls, one of whom is transsexual” and will offer “table dances as well as rooms”.

Alderweireld himself is awaiting trial in the so-called “Carlton Affair”, on charges of pimping in relation to sordid sex parties in the northern French city of Lille. DSK is also a named defendant in the case and faces his own charges of aggravated pimping. The trial is set for sometime either later this year or in 2015.

The embarrassment of having a sex club named after him comes in the same week his ex-wife Anne Sinclair said in an interview she had no idea about his libertine infidelities that included liaisons with prostitutes and orgies.  

Anne Sinclair, a well-respected French journalist who now heads France's Huffington Post website, said: "Listen, you can believe me or not, but I didn’t know.”
