Prince’s Insanely Kinky Sex Parties: Former Lover Speaks Out

People tend to reflect on the positive aspects of Prince’s life since he died in his Minneapolis estate last Thursday, but Charlene Friend, Prince’s ex-girlfriend, spoke during her life about Prince’s deranged sexual habits, his wild sex parties, and the unusual sexual relationship the two had. Now, reports the Mirror, the allegations have resurfaced, and they have the possibility of tarnishing the music icon’s sensual legacy.

In regards to the parties, said Friend, Prince enjoyed sadomasochism and bondage, and one-on-one was not enough for him — he wanted his violent sexual fetishes to be satisfied on a larger scale.

“Prince would have bizarre sex parties where he would have ‘theme’ rooms,” Charlene revealed. “Prince had cages, chains, whips in these various rooms.”

One of Prince’s kinky fun house parties sounds like a great sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, but was it great for the women who Prince had over (hopefully on their own free wills)? Prince was extremely forceful, after all, locking the women up and, as reported by the Daily Star, forcing them to call him “God” as he punished them.

Even with Charlene, Prince made sure his all-too-literal sex god complex was understood.

“Prince informed me that he took sexual relations very seriously, as he believed he was the ‘Messiah’ and if you engaged in sex with him, you became one with him.”

Prince was a very demanding partner too, Charlene said.

“He said I belonged to him. He also demanded that I be on call for him.”

Prince even filmed himself with Friend during sex, and Charlene insists he did it without her consent.

Where did all those insecurities come from? Publications such as the Guardian agree that Prince was a musical legend from his early years as a musician, and Our Black News points out that Prince was a very well-respected public figure in his home state of Minnesota while he was alive.

Prince’s borderline-criminal control issues with women extended beyond just the bedroom, however, said Friend.

“Prince threatened to have me killed after we broke up, saying no one else could have me,” she stated.

After hearing Charlene Friend’s recollection of Prince’s sexual and relational habits, it would be reasonable to assume Prince was a terrible misogynist. That is why many may be surprised to learn that Prince was actually very respectful in all his interactions with female musical artist and members of the media. His profound admiration for and support of females is even pointed out in many articles, including the New York Times piece “In Prince’s World, Women Rocked And Rolled” and the Muse’sPrince Spent His Life Mentoring And Elevating Women.”

“Prince was someone who really respected women as artists, songwriters and performers — something that was certainly not a given in the 70s and 80s when he started, and still isn’t even an assumed truth now,” notes music writer Bernard Zuel.

From Carmen Elektra to Sheila E. to Misty Copeland, pretty much all of Prince’s women after Charlene Friend seemed to be upstanding and empowered. And none of them said anything about Prince being an ultra-controlling sexual deviant even though Prince once put a recording of him and girlfriend Kim Basinger having sex right in the middle of a musical track.

That is what makes Prince’s denials of the allegations Friend made against him during the trial, which began in 2003, sort of believable. There is no apparent reason why Charlene would have lied, but Prince’s history makes it seem unlikely he would have done the things she said.

On the other hand, a desire for complete dominance in the bedroom does not necessarily translate to how Prince might act towards women in everyday life.

Do you think Charlene should be believed, or was just making it up because she had a beef with Prince? Does it even matter? Leave it in the comments section below.
