Aussie tourists caught up in raid on illegal orgy in Thailand

Laine Fullerton

Aussie men have been reportedly detained among 25 other tourists of multiple nationalities, for their involvement in an illegal swingers party in Thailand’s most notorious red light district.

You heard that right, there was one big multicultural orgy.

And these tourists might have thought it would stay their dirty secret, but when police officers raided the Pattaya establishment at around 11.30pm on Saturday, they began taking photos and video of sweaty, semi-naked, middle-aged men as they scrambled to cover themselves.

Officers found 18 men and 14 young local women, some having group sex in the Tulip Hotel’s dedicated level known as the ‘play zone’.

The tourists reportedly came from Australia, America, Britain, Canada, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Germany, Thailand, Cambodia, India and Ukraine.

Police told the Bangkok Post that attendees registered their interest on a Facebook group and paid AU$62 (1500 baht) to attend the sex party.

Condoms, lubricant and sexual enhancement drugs and toys were all collected for evidence and participants were detained for questioning pending further legal action.

According to the Bangkok Post, the owner of the Tulip Hotel, Chinese man Sheng Liao Yang, was arrested on suspicion of violating the Hotel Act and illegally facilitating sexual activities.

Prostitution is illegal in Thailand, despite Pattaya’s X-rated reputation, but police have recently attempted to crack down on the business in the district.

As per news.com, Naris Niwapantawong, district police chief for Banglamung said the men “exchanged partners with each other” during the sex party.

“We received a complaint about the Tulip Hotel. We were told they organised sex parties on the weekends,” he said.

“My staff coordinated with police, immigration and the military to strike quickly and accurately.”

“We carried out the operation while they were having sex and we shut them down.”

Sherriff Niwapantawong said police investigated the claims and obtained a warrant before carrying out the raid.

Commonly referred to as “The World’s Sex Capital”, Pattaya is certainly upholding this infamous reputation.

One response to “Aussie tourists caught up in raid on illegal orgy in Thailand”

  1. Notably for the record that it would be perfectly legal in almost every western country. Thailand aristocracy worries about “reputation” in this regard but if it were all made legit it would not make the news and “reputation” would not be an issue.
