Sex Club International Fixed
Sex clubs are venues that are open to the public, have a reserved entry specifically for members, or are invitation-only. They are designed sex-positive, safe spaces for people to engage in specified sexual activities. Each club varies in entertainment, clothing (or clothing optional) guidelines and general rules of practice. Venues cater to different people and sexual preferences and memberships, event tickets and cover charges vary from club to club.
Sex Club International
Lifestyle clubs are open to a private network of consensual adults who are looking to share in some sort of erotic activity. Most lifestyle clubs are members-only and many are also invite-only. You do not need to engage to become a member, some act more like a social club, although the opportunity to interact will be present.
Swingers clubs cater specifically to those in long-term relationships who are open to engaging in sex with other people. All clubs will have specific rules in place to protect patrons. Similarily to single-friendly sex clubs, swingers clubs will often hold events and many have private or semi-private rooms.
After opening the UK's first nightclub to stage live striptease, Raymond launched Paul Raymond Publications with the soft-porn magazine Men Only, soon followed by Escort, Club International, Mayfair and many other titles. He bought property on a large scale and became wealthy.
He also circumvented the authority of the Lord Chamberlain's powers in 1958 when he opened the Raymond Revuebar strip club as a private club in the former Doric Ballroom in Soho's Walker's Court. He had been unimpressed with the first legal strip club in Soho, believing he could do better. Within two years, Raymond's Revuebar had 45,000 members. He also bought the freehold of his venue for 14,000 within a year or two, the beginnings of his property portfolio in Soho.
According to Raymond's biographer, Paul Willetts, Raymond's Revuebar initially attracted a "chic clientele", including the actor John Mills and comedian Peter Sellers. The seedy reputation of the club led to regular clashes with the authorities about show content. In 1961, his club was called "filthy, disgusting and beastly" by the chairman of the London Sessions when Raymond was fined 5,000 following a magistrate's decision that permitting members to ring the Ding Dong Girl's bells constituted running a disorderly house. There was also the issue about an onstage snake charmer who it was ruled should not have swallowed the snake in public.
Raymond diversified, investing millions into buildings and other property, especially in Soho starting in the 1970s, through his company, Soho Estates. During 1977, when many sex shops and strip clubs were closing because the police were active in closing them down, he was able to buy them cheaply. In that year, he was buying one Soho freehold each week, and also acquired property in Chelsea, Kensington and Hampstead. Raymond owned about 400 properties in the Soho area. He was a frequent name on lists of the UK's wealthy reportedly with an estimated 650 million. One associate claimed the estate was worth billions, though public records of assets overseas did not exist. Forbes also placed him on its list of US dollar billionaires.
Referred to as "erotic theater" by its founder, Damon Lawner, the club hosts masquerades, pool parties, classes, and dinner events for its male members, as well as approved female guests, all with the ability for attendees to either participate, or simply act as voyeurs.
While no photography is allowed inside a Snctm event, HBO and Showtime have both aired documentaries exploring the parties the club hosts. Below are scenes from their recordings that show a small glimpse into the private and exclusive world of Snctm.
It ordered Rotary International to reinstate the Duarte club and prohibited it from enforcing its gender requirement on the club. (The court, however, acknowledged that it could not prevent Rotary International from adopting or enforcing membership rules or restrictions outside the state of California.)
