    Update: Repression in Coopersburg

US Swingers club closed

Based on an article from Morning Call

A tentative agreement has been reached to discontinue the operation of a sex club for swapping swingers in Coopersburg.

Bruce Young, co-owner of Coopersburg Holdings Inc., which owns Silhouette, said he hasn't seen the written agreement. But it's his understanding it will prohibit the strip bar from hosting future swingers events. In return, the borough will drop any zoning violations or penalties against the property owner.

Young added Club Kama Sutra hasn't held a party in Silhouette since late October.

Club Kama Sutra, a private sex club for swingers, began operating in the bar Sept. 2. For $60 a couple, it offered dancing, a light buffet and 12 hotel rooms for participants wishing to continue a more intimate form of private partying.

Borough Council determined the operation of a private, members-only club violates the zoning ordinance and directed their solicitors to pursue all legal remedies against it.

Update: Settled

The Coopersburg Zoning Hearing Board unanimously approved a settlement with a Coopersburg strip club that held sex parties for swingers, which borough officials said were illegal.

The club, Silhouette Showbar, agreed to never host such parties again in exchange for the borough forgiving its zoning violations.

    Never Ending Bliss

Swingers for free are free to continue

Based on an article from  Local 6

A couple has upset nutters in a Florida community by turning a rented riverside house into an adult swingers' club.

Police said they can't do anything about Never Ending Bliss, so long as nothing illegal happens there behind closed doors and between consenting adults.

Its operators received a "cease-and-desist" order from code enforcement, but stopped requesting a donation from patrons, which made it legal.

Within an hour they removed any requirement of paying money or paying dues, and the (Web) site has no advertising, city manager Joe Forte said. The city did what it could to investigate, but we determined there were no criminal violations.

Never Ending Bliss is described on a Web site as a very, very clean" private, invitation-only alternative-lifestyle club,

Matthew Early, who operates the club with his partner Nikki, said about 20 couples ranging in age from 21 to 75, meet on Friday and Saturday nights in the 3,800 square-foot place, which includes a dance floor with a pole."

    Sussex Taliban Raid Club Liberty

Based on an article from Mid Sussex Today

Police investigating unlikely allegations of prostitution at a private members' club in Scaynes Hill searched the premiseslast week.

As part of a continuing investigation they also searched a second house in Surrey where a man and a woman were arrested and released on police bail until April 2007.

More than 20 officers from Haywards Heath police specialist search teams and CID department, descended on the former naturist camp at Hamshaw that was controversially changed to liberated lifestyles club Liberty when owner Brian Sheridan and his wife Caroline took over in November 2005.

Leading the team was Taliban Inspector Gordon Denslow. He said: This is part of a multi-agency investigation based on evidence that has been accumulated over the last few months about the set up and management of Club Liberty.

Police were alerted to the allegations when the nutters' association Friends of Scaynes Hill (FOSH) launched their own investigations earlier in the year and composed a dossier of evidence including sexually graphic flyers, discarded sex toys and a report from a private investigator.

Inspector Shane Lambert, of Haywards Heath police, said: There is certainly evidence of sexual activity at Club Liberty. Whether that is prostitution or someone's fetish, to qualify as a brothel it has to be proved it was paid for.

Owner Brian Sheridan called the raid an "outrageous" waste of police resources. Sheridan said: In relation to the proposed charges it seems an incredible disposition to Sussex Police Force. I think it's outrageous. It's a misuse of police funds to finance this at a time when they are tightening their belts. If they had simply called us and asked us to come into the police station and answer their questions we would have gladly done so voluntarily.

    Taking Stock

Based on an article from Sunday Mail

A swingers club got a surprise visit from cops last week - as a sex party was going on.

CJs, in Edinburgh's New Town, was visited due to a licensing application and one punter had to be released from a set of stocks to let officers inspect the venue.

A source said: There were several couples in the club. There was someone in the stocks but he managed to extricate himself before the police saw him.

Following the police visit, a licence extension application has been rejected.

CJs opened last month hosts sex parties twice a week. Customers are charged £30 at the door and adverts boast of playrooms, groping rooms and rooms full of porn.

A police spokesman said: Officers from the licensing section did visit the club in East Claremont Street. This was routine because the club applied for an extension to its entertainments licence.

    Zones of Repression

Based on an article from Fort

A rural swingers club is facing fines of $300 per day after Shelby County officials decided it was in violation of morality zones.

The club, called Topside II, was the talk of the town.

This isn't something that you would expect in rural Indiana , said Shelby County Sheriff Tom Debaun: We don't know if any of this activity is illegal. All of their caveats on their Web page say they don't tolerate illegal activity, so that people who are participating in this are participating of their own free will, and they are supposed to be adults.

Amy Butcher, executive director of the commission, said the owner, Gary James, had moved the club onto an old farm he had bought in rural Shelby County after running afoul of zoning officials in Indianapolis, where she said he had operated a similar club. The club's Web site described it as one of the Midwest's oldest swingers clubs.

However, Topside II's Web site does request donations — from $5 for single women to about $30 for single men and couples. The donations could be enough to classify the club as an adult business, officials said, and the area is zoned for agriculture and single-family residential use. Butcher served James with a cease-and-desist order Sept. 7, and sheriff's deputies who conducted surveillance recently detected no activity.

The commission voted 7-0 to find the club in violation and make the fines retroactive to Sept. 7.

    Beginnings of Repression

Based on an article from The Home News Tribune

The operator of Beginnings has agreed to leave the Rahway, New Jersey by Dec. 1, according to Mayor James Kennedy. The city issued dozens of citations to the business at 1519 Main St. during a late-night raid earlier this year.

The club advertises itself on its Web site as "New Jersey's Premier Club for Couples" in operation at the same location since 1982. Beginnings, a private club catering to married and committed couples, is operated by Tokar Services.

Tokar Services has been a thorn in this city for many years; a well-known secret where sex acts were protected by laws intended to preserve the rights of Americans, Kennedy said. At long last, the sex club is on its way out of Rahway.

 City Health Officer Rick Proctor and Lenore A. Slothower, director of building, engineering, planning and economic development, were accompanied by Rahway police inside the sex club in March after a court order was obtained authorizing the late-night administrative search warrant.

The two officials issued a total of 39 citations against the sex club. Slothower said a sex club is not a permitted use in the city's downtown business zone. She said sex clubs are not permitted in any zone in the city. Rahway does permit adult entertainment in light-industry zones, with conditions.

The club is only open from 9 p.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Saturday and from 9 p.m. Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday. First-time customers are charged $90 per couple on Fridays and $100 per couple for Saturdays, according to the Web site. Discounted passes are offered for member couples. Discounted fees also were offered for couples who visited both nights on the same weekend. The Web site indicates membership is approaching 650 couples.

    Departure from Council's Morality Plan

Perhaps it is the council that should be prosecuted. It is the weakest justification to cover up regulation via morality that I have read for a while: refusal on the grounds that the area is primarily industrial and the use of the building as a private members club is "a departure from the Development Plan" for the area.

Based on an article from This is Wirral

A new private members club in Hoylake that offers "relaxation and adult entertainment" could be forced to close this week.

Reflections opened its doors in a former warehouse unit on the Carr Lane industrial estate in June. A local naturist society is advertising itself on the internet saying Reflections is its new monthly meeting place for members.

On its website the group states: Members are able to enjoy their Reflections' full facilities, which includes a sauna, Jacuzzi, shower room, pool room, locker room and lounge. The site said the group did not discriminate on grounds of gender or sexual orientation, is open to singles, both male & female, and couples. The object of the club is for people of like mind to get together in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and, hopefully, form friendship.

Council enforcement officers made a site visit to Reflections in July and subsequently reported that the unauthorised use of the building as a private members club was a breach of planning regulations.

The occupier of the premises has since submitted a planning application asking for retention of use of the building as a private members club.

However, that application - which will go before Wirral Council's planning committee on Thursday recommends refusal on the grounds that the area is primarily industrial and the use of the building as a private members club is "a departure from the Development Plan" for the area.

    Liberated Adult Contact Club

Based on an article from Yeovil Express

Councillors have been reassured that a planned liberated adult contact club' will be run in a professional and discreet manner in Yeovil.

Club Lifestyle Ltd has been granted a licence by South Somerset District Council to open the private members' club in the historic Tabernacle Lane close to Dukes Nightclub.

Now, Yeovil Town Council's planning and licensing committee has this week agreed to support the idea, subject to no strong objections coming forward during an on-going consultation period.

Club Lifestyle plan to install a hot tub, shower room, sauna, a dance room, four bedrooms and a sitting room. The plans also include the provision of a dance pole.

It is understood that the club will open from noon to 12.30am from Mondays through to Thursdays and on Sundays, and from noon to 4.30am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Kevin Higgins, representing the applicants, said: It will be run as a private members' club - not a nightclub - so there should not be any disruption outside. I've been informed that we have been granted a licence and the police and fire brigade are happy with the proposals. We have done everything by the book. The police have been in contact with similar clubs in the Birmingham area to see how they are run.

 Cllr Julian Freke said: I have got no problems if people want to be members of a private club, but I hope it will be kept low key, He made reference to the opening of a sex shop in Yeovil a few years ago and although there were raised eyebrows at the time, he said that it had caused no problems and had virtually gone unnoticed.

    Wicked in Toronto

Based on an article from

Toronto will soon be welcoming a new neighbour: a massive swingers club complete with Top 40-spinning DJs, "love furniture," a communal shower and one multi-tiered orgy room.

Branding itself as the city's only "on-premise" club, where sex is allowed in a members-only area, Wicked Club is feverishly renovating an old boozerbefore its grand opening this Saturday.

The club will officially open in October, co-owner Aurora Benzion confirmed. Wicked will also feature a "fashion cafe" open to the general public and set to launch this November, Ms. Benzion confirmed.

Wicked's off-premise floor will boast three bars, an erotic film projection area, buxom hosts and a dance floor for "dirty dancing" -- off-premise translates into "exhibitionism, flirting, kissing, fondling, dirty dancing, etc," but absolutely no penetration. That's reserved for the on-premises VIP Suite, where a daily membership runs $10 for women and $60 for couples.

Persistently marketing itself as a "sophisticated" destination, Wicked caters strictly to 25 to 35-year-olds, "where women run the show" and most men need not apply without a female companion.

Entry to the VIP Suite is more like Fort Knox than a bacchanal.

Hopeful hedonists have to fill out a membership form that includes two (accurate) photos and a slew of personal information. The club reserves the right to turn people away who don't fit the club's "compatibility" --young, fit and scantily clad.

Last December, the Supreme Court of Canada legalized swingers clubs when it ruled consenting adults who engage in sexual activity behind closed doors while like-minded folks look on are not committing indecent acts.

    Swingers in Hot Water

Based on an article from Japan Times

There's a mixed bathing resort in Japan that enjoys a cult status among couples and groups who go there for sexual kicks.

It's a growing trend, says Shukan Taishu. More and more people are going to hot springs, or onsen, for a lot more than innocent rest and relaxation.

The trend appears to have developed from another recent fad, one for mixed bathing, or konyoku. As the popularity of konyoku grew, so has the opportunities for the naked bathers to become physically intimate.

One konyoku resort where such shenanigans take place is in the Higashi Izu district in Shizuoka Prefecture. Its bathing pool is nestled along the sea coast. So when a big ocean wave rolls in, bathers are sprayed with cool salt water. According to a writer specializing in Japan's hot springs, the resort's fame has lately grown well beyond its spectacular setting.

It's gotten the bad name of being a perverted onsen because of the large groups of people who come from all across the nation to swap partners , the writer says.

In the konyoku in Kyushu, men and women have long been known to get really drunk and then start having sex. They would leave behind the litter of this debauchery, including used condoms, he says. There have been cases of these onsen having to shut down as a result."

Moderation and common sense, advises Shukan Taishu, is key if onsen sex is to survive as a trend. Otherwise it could spoil what for many sexual hedonists is a very good thing indeed.

    Stony Hearts on Ottawa Council

Based on an article from CBC

More than 1,000 Canadian swingers have been left out in the cold after their Ottawa playhouse closed because of a supposed misunderstanding about the zoning of their new building.

After investing seven months and thousands of dollars in renovations in a rented property near Manotick, the Bashful and Bold club, which bills itself as the capital city's premier club for swingers, has been forced to close its doors.

Last month, club owners found out that their rented property had only been zoned for mineral extraction.

We were led to believe this was a commercial property for a commercial business , said Bob Crandell, who owns the club with his wife Bev.

The discovery was made when the owners approached the city to seek a building permit to replace a structural wall during renovations.

But unlike the club where they have managed to loosen many people's inhibitions, the couple has had little of progress with the city's zoning office. City officials said the owners should have been aware of the zoning regulations affecting the property.

The Crandells have decided not to apply for rezoning, which could take years. Instead, they are now looking for a new location. The club has been operating in Ottawa for the past 11 years.

    Firing Arrows at Cupids

Based on an article from Manchester Online

A Swinton swinging club has been thrust into the spotlight after being at the centre of a politician's legal fight to clear his name.

Tommy Sheridan, former head of the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP), was accused of cheating on his wife and visiting Cupids swingers' club in Sutherland Street - billed as Manchester's No1 Swingers' Club.

Swinton councillor Joe O'Neill says he is "deeply concerned" by the publicity the case has attracted: This is putting the wrong spotlight on Swinton. The area seems to be degenerating to a tone I'm not happy with. This place is too close to families in residential areas. The police and the council should be doing more about it because a blind eye is being turned and it is not acceptable.

On Cupids' website ladies are urged to wear "sexy underwear, latex, uniforms, towel" while gents are told the dress is "a towel or shorts". It states: Serious swingers can have the time of their lives in our club. Just enter the open rooms for serious attention from anyone in there, but most will not begin until they get the indication that you require their attention.

A spokesman for Salford City Council said: The city council has limited powers to act, which are mostly to do with planning approval and licensing entertainment or the sale of alcohol. If there are other matters Cllr O'Neill believes the police should address, he should of course raise those issues with them.

    Swinging Fun in Britain

Based on an article from the Belfast Telegraph , by Emma Gold

No-strings, guilt-free sex with strangers – it's not the kind of Saturday-night entertainment you often hear discussed in the office on Monday morning. So it may come as a surprise that as many as 1.5 million British couples have admitted to trying it.

Dedicated nightclubs, magazines, holidays and internet sites are all part of the swinging boom. According to one site, Swinging Heaven, 400,000 people in Britain are involved every week, and the number is growing.

A quick Google search will reveal just how pervasive the swinging scene is, and it is the internet that has enabled this surge by opening communications between like-minded couples. And if this seems incredible – well, it would. Swingers are generally discreet about their activities.

Traditional, noncommercial house parties intended for couples still exist as private, invitation-only affairs. But it is a new breed of club that is changing the image of swingers as middle-aged, bored suburbanites. Belle Baise, launched by Freja Kensington a year ago, is designed for "the sexual élite". It holds carefully screened events at luxurious locations in Nottingham. There is an age limit of 35; the average age is 27.

Those keen to attend must initially submit a photo of themselves and between 40-60% of applicants are turned away because they are not sufficiently attractive. Nonetheless, her latest event is already fully booked.

Similar clubs targeting the young, attractive and sexually adventurous, such as Lounge Parties, Killing Kittens and Fever Parties, have sprung up in the past five years. Clifford Brown of Lounge Parties says: Couples are now more likely to tell their straight friends about their swinging . It may not yet be straight-forwardly open, but there's a cachet, and that's got to be worth a brag.

Swingers tend to be libertarians who are not rule-bound, says Phillip Hodson, a fellow of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. It attracts people either with a strong libidinous drive or a psychological need to exhibit themselves or gain sexual attention.

For those suited to swinging, Roger Lande author of 21st Century Swinging explains the appeal: Stimulation, friendship and lack of guilt. It's not adultery if you're both agreeing to it.

There is also a swinging adage that the more enthusiastic member of a couple will get the couple into swinging, but the less enthusiastic partner will keep them there . As Carol Queen, author of Exhibitionism for The Shy , puts it: The swing community has noticed a prevalent dynamic in couples where one partner, more often than not the man, has more enthusiasm than the other. He has had terrific fantasies about freewheeling sex and plenty of it, and he finally convinces his initially reluctant partner to give swinging a try. When they get to the party, she has a great time and is in high demand, while he thinks the party's a dud.

So what actually goes on? Sexual intercourse generally doesn't happen the minute guests arrive and it tends to take place away from the main party. Guests normally spend the first hour having a drink and chat, says Lande. Gradually, clothes come off and people tend to disappear upstairs for sex. Apart from naked dancing and a bit of heavy petting, nothing serious happens in the main room.

It is considered bad form to attend with someone who is not your partner, although single men do try to bring a female, known as a "ticket" in order to gain entry. There are rules at clubs however, at Killing Kittens, men are forbidden from approaching women. There also seems to be a convention that if you are fully dressed, it is unlikely you will be approached for anything other than a chat and I can confirm that this was my experience. There aren't many rules to swinging, apart from the golden one: "No means no."

There is an accepted etiquette. Some clubs have a designated "group room", where some rules may be slightly relaxed: in other words, it might be assumed OK for someone to touch you unless/until you say no.

Opening closed doors to bedroom areas and just staring at whatever is going on is usually considered rude. It's common for people to dress up. The dress code at Belle Baise is "smart cocktail dress" for women and suits for men.

Some people may prefer not to be around when their partner is having sex with someone else, known as "closed swinging", while others may insist on it – "open swinging". The term "soft swinging" refers to trading partners just for the purposes of heavy petting and then switching back to one's primary partner for any actual sex.

Swingers point to the many advantages of such recreational sex: a variety of sexual partners and experiences; watching others to learn new techniques; "recapturing one's youth"; feeling reassured that you're still attractive and desirable; and increasing mutual attraction and love within the marriage.

Swinging is clearly not suited for those who believe sex is an intimate act between two people. It's also not suited for the insecure and jealous. There may also be a fear that your partner will find someone they like better.

Lande says he has never seen this happen and echoes committed swingers' belief that the practice strengthens the core relationship.

    Fun For All

Based on an article from The Voice

Swinging is increasing in popularity as an alternative lifestyle for Britain's black community. For 30-year-old Karen, it's the biggest secret thrill of her life: You do a mundane job from nine till five, and this is something that when you look at people in the street, you think to yourself, 'you have no idea what I do with my clothes off!' It's as though you're part of an elite team, and it's so satisfying that you don't need to tell anyone about it.

Despite our liberal society, the idea of swinging still provokes moral outrage, conjuring up images of seething orgies and wild abandonment. And as more and more black and Asian people get involved in the swingers' scene, their parties have been enjoying a surge in popularity.

An investigation by The Voice can reveal a growing trend among black Britons to participate, organise, and manage swingers' parties. One woman of Jamaican parentage, known on the scene as Goddess, told The Voice that black swingers make up as much as 40% of attendees at parties in London. Asians are about 10% at the parties.

Goddess explained how the scene developed: There is a connection between the launch of garage music and black people going to swingers' parties. As more and more people started hearing about a good DJ, girls would bring other girls and they would tell their friends, and it just grew!

Since that first introduction, Goddess hasn't looked back, and is now an established name on the scene, regularly hosting parties for between 20 and 150 people.

Richard Stanley and his black wife Janet organise parties for as many as 200 people at their home in Radlett, Manchester. Recruitment is largely through their website:

He said: When Janet interviews new guys, she's checking out that they have a healthy attitude and don't see sex as a predatory fight and that they're sociable, and well bred.

Janet said: I try not to have any body too young - usually people are from 25 to 60 years old. My parties are based around music and food and I introduce people to each other. Most places have four or five bedrooms, so some people may start out in the living room and chat, while others may be in the bedroom. But we don't just eat and jump on each other! If you were at the party for the first hour, it will just look like any other dinner party until people drift off to the rooms.

For most swinging parties, couples pay a minimal fee or no charge for membership. Similarly, there is no charge for single women, but single men, generally over represented, can pay as much as £100. However, party organisers point out that there is little if any profit to be made. There are so many people these days throwing parties, said Goddess.

Despite the laid back attitude there remains the overriding concern about safe sex.

We do have condoms at the parties, Goddess explained: A lot of parties have condoms in the bucketloads. My advice to everyone is to use condoms and my advice to guys who have come with their girls is to watch out for the girls to make sure than no one tries to slip in without a condom. People do look out for each other. We're very responsible.

So is swinging still a dirty secret kept hidden from friends and family? 90% of my friends know about it, and the family that I don't want to know, don't know about it, said Goddess.

And what about the long arm of the law? Police aren't interested as long as we're not doing drugs or anything underage, said Goddess. There is nothing illegal - I don't pay girls to be there. If I was paying girls that would be running a disorderly house. It's a private party behind the closed doors of a residential house.

Richard also boasted of a good relationship with the police, and claims some off-duty cops even attend his parties.
