  • The women hoped to come to (Berlusconi's) attention and to be chosen to spend the night with him, allowing him to satisfy his most perverse erotic impulses—even by having lesbian sex each with each other—Italian judges

Young women attended "inelegant" dinner parties at former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi's luxury homes for personal gain and even had lesbian sex in the hope of stirring his desire to sleep with them, judges in Italy have ruled.

"In most cases, the women just hoped they would reap economic or other personal benefits, while some had longer-term career plans to transform their extremely modest lives," the judges in the southern Italian city of Bari said late on Wednesday.

"The women hoped to come to (Berlusconi's) attention and to be chosen to spend the night with him, allowing him to satisfy his most perverse erotic impulses—even by having lesbian sex each with each other."

The judges were explaining reasoning behind the prison sentences they handed in November to businessman Gianpaolo Tarantini and three others for recruiting prostitutes to attend orgies at Berlusconi's homes.

Berlusconi, 79, has always insisted the soirées, held in 2008-09, were "elegant dinners" where he sang and played the piano to the delight of his guests—claims which the trial judges rejected.

"Berlusconi was the key player at the inelegant dinners organised at his residences, where he benefitted from the constant presence of attractive, provocative, uninhibited, unscrupulous and above all extremely young women," the judges said.
