London: A tape, which purportedly shows a sexually explicit conversation between Silvio Berlusconi and a prostitute, has been released on the net.
In the explicit conversation, Patrizia D`Addario, 42, a high-class escort girl, can be heard lavishing praise on the business tycoon for his ``performance`` and he appears to reply that she should have "sex with yourself more often", reports a news daily.
D`Addario made the recordings after she spent the night at 72-year-old Italian prime minister`s official residence in Rome following a party.
The raunchy tapes, the third set, were published on the website of left leaning Italian news magazine.
Just hours before the tapes were made available, the media billionaire had spoken for the first time about the sex scandal, saying, "I am no saint."
The transcript included this purported 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 like I had 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.
Previously other recordings were released which included Berlusconi asking D`Addario to wait for him by "the big Putin bed" while in another she is warned that he does not like to wear a condom during sex.
A spokesman for the prime minister`s People of Freedom party, said the posting was "pathetic".
He added, "Despite many efforts, the bubble of gossip and mud-slinging against Silvio Berlusconi and the government has already deflated.
"All that`s left is this pathetic attempt to give new life to a journalistic campaign that`s already dead," he said, adding that the journalists involved were "evidently in need of a holiday".
