Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn Wednesday lashed out at the focus on his sexual behavior in a French court where he is charged with pimping, saying he was not on trial for "deviant" acts.For a second day, the court in the northern city of Lille picked apart sex parties attended by Strauss-Kahn in Paris, Brussels and Washington in a bid to uncover whether he arranged for prostitutes to attend.Much of the proceedings were taken up with accounts of a trip by Jade and friends of Strauss-Kahn to visit him in Washington, and whether the then-IMF chief asked for a prostitute to be brought along.Strauss-Kahn said Tuesday that as an unabashed libertine, the fun for him lay in the "playful party atmosphere" and that the presence of prostitutes would render such soirees seedy.Strauss-Kahn also objected to the impression given by the prosecution of a "frenetic" schedule of sex parties, saying he only took part in such "recreational outlets" four times a year between 2008 and 2011 .
