New York sex club busted for 80 people partying sans masks
NEW YORK (AP) — There were plenty of condoms but no masks at a sex club where 80 people were caught partying the night away without adhering to social distancing rules, the New York Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.
Deputies responding to a complaint Saturday night found people drinking, eating at a buffet and having sex at a site in Queens around midnight. Boxes of condoms were provided and three couples were engaged in sex in a small back room, the Sheriff's Office said.
The event was hosted by Caligula New York, which advertises itself as the “Hottest Swingers Club in New York.” Organizers were ticketed for violating pandemic rules and selling alcohol without a proper license. A telephone message seeking comment was left at Caligula New York.
In Midtown Manhattan, another party was broken up at 2 a.m. Sunday by deputies who found over 120 people dancing, drinking and smoking hookah without masks or social distancing. The organizers, bouncers and a DJ were ticketed.
