Orgy Organizer Says Politicians Across Europe Attend His Sex Parties

The anti-LGBTQ+ Hungarian politician who was caught at a gay orgy was planning a sex party of his own, according to the man who hosted the original event.

Jozsef Szajer, a Hungarian representative in the European Parliament, was one of about 25 men who attended the party last Friday at the apartment of David Manzheley in Brussels, Belgium. The party was broken up by police for violating restrictions on the size of gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now Manzheley has told Polish publication Onet that Szajer was planning to host a gay sex party December 12 but decided to cancel it after being fined for violating the pandemic rules. Manzheley said Szajer invited him to the event.

"Many public figures from various countries appear at my events, including Polish politicians," Manzheley told Onet, as translated by The Daily Beast. "They have families and they have asked from the outset to keep their participation in the gay orgy a secret." The Beast has not been able to independently confirm Manzheley's statements.

He said he has hosted politicians from at least nine countries, including at least nine members of Hungary's far-right Fidesz Party, of which Szajer is a member and which is the majority party in the nation's government. "We have politicians from Ukraine, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Spain," Manzheley said, according to the Beast's translation. "However, the most frequent guests are Poles and Hungarians." Poland and Hungary have some of the most homophobic governments in Europe.

Szajer resigned his position in the European Parliament and resigned from Fidesz after being caught leaving the orgy. He made a public statement saying he had made a "misstep" that was "strictly personal," but he did not address the nature of the gathering. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban called Szajer's attendance at the party "unacceptable and indefensible."

Szajer had spoken proudly of revising Hungary's constitution in 2011 to include a ban on same-sex marriage. The nation has enacted other anti-LGBTQ+ measures and is considering more, including a constitutional amendment mandating traditional gender roles, endorsing "children's right to the gender identity they were born with," and stating that only married heterosexual couples can adopt children.

The politician is married to a woman, but a source had told The Guardian that it was an "open secret" that he is not completely straight.

In the interview with Onet, Manzheley called himself a "hobbyist organizing gay orgies with up to 100 people." He has scaled down the number of guests due to the pandemic, he said, adding that he believes the recent party was reported to police by a competitor of his. Some people attending the event initially thought the police were costumed invitees, and one guest tried to take down an officer's pants, he said.

He described the party as a "daddy orgy," which meant that everyone had to participate, not simply observe, and that it involved condomless sex. He sometimes allows observers, and women can be observers or organizers but not engage in sex, he said. Political talk is off limits at his parties, even though many politicians attend, he noted.

Manzheley said that in addition to hosting the parties, he is a graduate student at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium. There are reports that he is wanted on fraud charges in Poland, but he denied this.
