‘British Politician Sex’ centers around a point in history more commonly known as the ‘Profumo Affair’.
John Profumo was a British politician. One of his friends, a man by the name of Stephen Ward, introduced Profumo to Christine Keeler, a model and showgirl, at a pool party hosted by Lord Aster. Profumo eventually got into a relationship with her that lasted for a short time.
Profumo was confronted later and denied that he had had sex with Keeler. But soon the truth was found out, and Profumo resigned from the Conservative Party.
When Keeler was asked about it, she agreed that she had had sex with Profumo, and that she had enjoyed it.
‘I enjoyed sex and indulged in it when I fancied the men.’ - Christine Keeler
