‘Bunga bunga’ is only dancing and not sex, says Berlusconi

London: Silvio Berlusconi has claimed that his notorious “bunga bunga” parties were innocent, and only involved dancing.

The 75-year-old Italian Prime Minister said he was a religious man and orgies at which women were paid for sex had been “invented by porn-obsessed prosecutors.”

The media tycoon is charged with having sex with an underage prostitute at a party when strippers dressed as nuns, but he denied it.

“There was no sacrilegious behaviour at my house,” the Sun quoted Berlusconi as saying.

“When a guest said, ‘Are we going to have some bunga bunga after dinner?’ they were just talking about dancing,” he added.

Currently the Prime Minister is facing four court hearings.
