An orgy of orgies

AN ORGY OF ORGIES
AN ORGY OF ORGIES

 

Fancy orgies! Wheelchair-accessible orgies! ‘Freak Fest’ orgies! Belgian grandma orgies! … These orgies and more in this week’s Sex in the Press.



THE POSH, UPMARKET ORGY

The inner-workings of the international high-end orgy scene were exposed recently in a well-publicised trial of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, according to The rise and rise of the upmarket orgy (Telegraph.co.uk, 14-02-2015).

Until his arrest in 2011 for sexually assaulting a NYC hotel maid, Strauss-Kahn was a serious contender to be France’s next President. “He was also, as we learnt last week when he took the stand at his trial for aggravated pimping in Lille, northern France, a regular participant in sex parties in Paris, Brussels and Washington, described in an official French investigators’ report as "carnage on a pile of mattresses".

Orgies seem to be enjoying a renaissance. “We have every kind of guest – lawyers, actors, accountants, models and nurses,” says one British upmarket orgy organiser. “It’s definitely becoming a more and more fashionable thing to do – social apps such as Tinder are allowing people to hook up and it’s made them much less inhibited and more interested in pushing boundaries and exploring, but in a safe environment.”

 

HOME-SHARING ORGIES

Meanwhile, other social apps allow people to organise an orgy in the safety of home – other people’s homes.

“Last year, comedian Ari Teman made headlines after renting out his Seventh Avenue studio on Airbnb. But his guests weren’t wholesome holidaymakers. Teman discovered that an orgy billed as ‘XXX FREAK FEST’, was taking place in his apartment. Since then, he’s been blacklisted and left homeless,” according to ‘Airbnb “Freak Fest” orgy leaves NYC man homeless’ (therealdeal.com, 30-05-2015).

But now there’s an alternative: "The new Airbnb for orgies ought to solve some problems" (curbed.com, 08-05-2015).

“With Kinkbnb, you can book a stay in such places as ‘The Office, Portland's boutique dungeon’, which includes a ‘spanking horse’, and ‘Prison Cell near Leipzig, Germany’, which is pretty self-explanatory.”

 

EMPOWERMENT ORGIES

“The Berlin wall of sex for people with disabilities is coming down!” according to Accessible orgy a go for disabled (torontosun.com, 03-06-2015). Yes folks, “a wheelchair can become just a big sex toy”.

The ‘Deliciously Disabled’ orgy is being organised this summer in Canada in time for the Parapan Am Games. It promises to have full wheelchair access as well an interpreter for the deaf.

“By making this party accessible, we are saying openly that people with disabilities are sexual beings,” says the organisor. “This should not be shocking. It should be celebrated.”

Unfortunately, another orgy story related to empowerment turned out to be too good to be true – Russian media pick up fake “Belgian grandma orgy” story (themoscowtimes.com, 14-10-2014).

Over a hundred Russian media outlets believed a satirical news story that reported: “Seven of the 200 participants died of heart problems at or after the event, which saw one female pensioner take on 35 sexual partners.”
