Sex in the news

BBC News:
Israel has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador after he was found drunk and naked apart from bondage gear.
Reports say he was able to identify himself to police only after a rubber ball had been removed from his mouth. [...]
Police found Mr Refael in the Israeli embassy compound where he had been found bound, gagged and naked apart from sado-masochistic sex accessories.
The lurid details were apparently all over the Israeli media and were met with all the moralistic shock horror a story like this can muster. Check especially the Haaretz reader reactions, some are a hoot:
"The ambassador in question refused to comment on the incident saying there is a "gag" order on the story and theres nothing he could do because "his hands are tied". He also added that this whole episode has caused him "pain" since the story first "hit" the press. He added that he deserved to be "punished" and is ready to "submit" to any punishment meted it to him."
What made me laugh was that he didn't file any complaint with the local police. Considering the rather gruesome history of the El Salvadorean police paramilitary non-consensual SM games they used to play in earlier decades, I'm not surprised.
But what is intriguing too is that he was found inside the embassy compound. Knowing that Israeli buildings around the world are a paragon of security, it would be inconceivable a local dominatrix would have gotten in undetected to give the ambassador a dozen licks of her finest. So it must have been an inside job, I hope the media will dig a little deeper into this. Or was it all gone in the diplomatic bag
