A Geneva MP has made headlines for a link on his Facebook page to a hardcore porn site registered in his name that features his girlfriend.

Olivier Sauty, a 47-year-old Geneva Citizen’s Movement (MCG) member, is the registered owner of the website, which features his companion advertising explicit “pay for view” services involving a webcam.

The site also offers a no-holds barred view of swinger parties at a French club near the Geneva border featuring the woman engaging with Sauty, Le Matin reported on its website on Thursday.

The link, which came to the attention of fellow politicians, was visible on his website until last week.

“I deleted it as soon as I noticed its existence on my Facebook profile,” Sauty told Le Matin.

“I don’t understand how the link to my companion’s activities appeared,” he said.

“In any case, it wasn’t me who put it there.”

However, Sauty acknowledged that the porn site was registered in his name.

“I actually paid for the site with my credit card because my girlfriend does not have one,” he told Le Matin.

Sauty, the owner of a discotheque who was elected to office in 2009, added that he feels comfortable with the pornographic activities of his partner.

“She sells her image, not her body,” he said.

“For the rest, I have never hid my libertine status, which I’ve shared with my companion for four years.”

Fellow members of the MCG, a populist party that publicly supports the family and “morality”, declined to criticize Sauty, calling the matter a private affair.

Other politicians appeared to find the controversy something to giggle over without comment, although some were less circumspect.

“Our colleague is losing his moral duty when he publicly promotes the sex trade of his companion,” Sophie Forster, Green party MP, told Le Matin.
