Roman Polanski Explains How to Pick Up 15 Year Olds

We need an explanation? Isn't "I can buy beer and cigarettes" enough?

Reason starts by noting that it's not true that this is a liberal-conservative thing -- the liberals are, except for the HuffPo's sub-cretins, mostly lining up behind the hitherto-undebatable proposition that raping 13 year olds is a bad thing. Fair enough point -- as mentioned yesterday, the French public, too (as opposed to the politico-celebrity swells) is pretty much aghast at this rapist.

Later on it gets uglier, as Matt Welch quotes from Polanski's own memoir, Roman by Polanski (ha... ha...), in which he tells us how he gets his pedophilia on.

One day a German gossip columnist invited me out on a double date with two girls he wante me to meet. Both were young and, in different ways, strikingly beautiful. One of them was rather dowdily dressed. I asked her name. "My friends call me Nasty," she said. [...] Very late that night, after a long round of discos, the four of us ended up in my suite. Leaving Nasty with the journalist, I took the other girl, a stunning blonde, to bed. By the time I surfaced the journalist had gone. Nasty was half-asleep in an armchair in the sitting room. Taking her by the hand, I led her back into the bedroom.

We never repeated this threesome, though I saw a lot of both girls thereafter. I dated the blonde for several weeks, but it was Nasty who grew on me more and more. [...]

Nastassia introdued me to her mother, who discussed her career with me [...]. That was when I first learned Nastassia's age. She was only fifteen.<

We made love more than once during my three months in Munich. [...] On the night we met I'd thought her a couple of years older than her friend, who was, in fact, seventeen.

Charming! Just a couple of months later came The Incident. Yes, he describes it in the book. I'll keep the nauseating excerpt to a minimum:

Then, very gently, I began to kiss and caress her. After this had gone on for some time, I led her over to the couch.

There was no doubt about Sandra's experience and lack of inhibition. She spread herself and I entered her. She wasn't unresponsive.

Polanski was "incredulous" that anyone would consider his actions a crime. And he was indignant that photographs of him yukking it up in Munich on leave from his case became an issue, since the females in the photo were attached to various friends. Of course, at the time, he was still shacking up with Kinski, though in fairness she was a wisened old lady of 16.

Ahem. Well, it may be that Polanski only knew Kinski's age after they had had sex, but he continued having sex with her, and I'm pretty sure he had an idea she was underage, as she was the source of some controversy for being naked in films despite being underage.

Oh, and then a couple of months later he raped a 13 year old.

Update: Well and Truly, the Man Has Suffered Enough: Check out the gulag where Polanski's been languishing in exile.
