“Sado-masochistic behaviour, even where it involved adultery, was not a matter of genuine public interest justifying interference by the media in an individual’s private life. Exemplary damages were not available in a claim for infringement of privacy: a claim for compensatory damages could reflect an element of aggravation. Certain principles were applicable in the assessment of compensatory damages for infringement of privacy.”
