A woman who put details of herself and a photograph showing her in a sheer top on a swingers’ website could not claim to have a reasonable expectation of privacy about the information, the Independent Press Standards Organisation has warned.

IPSO rejected a complaint from Lynn Pearce that the Daily Star Sunday breached Clause 2 of the Editors’ Code of Practice, covering privacy, with an online article headlined “Euro 2016: Swingers hosting couples sex parties to bonk while watching England” which was published on June 12.

The article reported that a swingers’ club was hosting a themed sex party to celebrate England’s participation in the European Championships, and included an image of a swinging website, where the party was being advertised, with a comment in which one site member said she was excited about the event.

Pearce said she was concerned the newspaper had accessed a swinging website which was for paid members only, and had published a screenshot of the site, which showed her comment on the approaching football-themed party, her profile name, where she was from, and her profile photograph which showed her breasts through a sheer top.

She had a disclaimer on her swinging profile, which stated that no part of it could be taken and published without her permission.

The swinging website was not well known outside the swinging community, but the newspaper’s site would be accessed by far more people, she said, adding the article had led family members to discover that she was a member of swinging website.

The newspaper said the website to which Ms Pearce belonged was not a private site; anyone who submitted a name and e-mail address could access it, and it was not necessary to pay a membership fee.

Ms Pearce had commented on a public forum – she had not used the “private message” option and her profile picture and user ID could be seen by anyone visiting the site.

On the disclaimer, it considered that its journalist might not have seen Pearce’s entire profile because he only took the information available on the public forum.

Ms Pearce’s name and address were not published, and the picture was a “tiny thumbnail”, said the newspaper, adding that although it did not consider that the article disclosed private information about her, it removed the screen shot of her profile from the article because of the concerns raised.

Ipso’s complaints committee said anyone who entered a name and e-mail address on the swinging website to which Ms Pearce belonged could access her profile.

In addition to the image of her wearing a sheer top, the profile contained detailed information about her, which most people would consider to be highly private.

Given her own public disclosures of information, she could not argue that she had a reasonable expectation of privacy regarding her profile picture and username.

The article did not identify Pearce by name or disclose any further information about her beyond her forum post indicating her intention to attend the party.

Although there was no breach of the code, the committee welcomed the amendment of the article in response to the complaint.

The article has also been removed from the Daily Star’s website.

SAN ANTONIO - Three sergeants and one patrol deputy with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office are facing termination Thursday after they were accused of engaging in sexual activity on the job.

Two of the sergeants have already turned in their badges and guns and have been placed on administrative leave. The third sergeant and deputy have not yet received a formal notification, the Sheriff's Office said, because they have not answered their phones.

The case stems from allegations made five months ago that a lieutenant and patrol deputy engaged in sexual activity in a patrol vehicle while on the job.

Shortly after that, an investigation started into what sources have described as a "swingers club."

On Thursday, the Sheriff's Office moved to fire the four employees for "inappropriate behavior."

The lieutenant, Phil Dreyer, handed in a resignation letter when he was questioned in October, saying, "This will end my 37 1/2 years of service to the citizens of Bexar County and the state of Texas."

While Dreyer is no longer a Sheriff's Office employee, his resignation did not put an end to the investigation. The case has been handed over to the District Attorney's Office.

The four employees fired Thursday can appeal their terminations.

WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Cincinnati just witnessed the power of individual citizens speaking out against the sex industry coming to their town. And then Cincinnati witnessed a judge overruling their concerns.

The town of Windsor Locks, Conn. — population 12,000 — doesn’t seem a Vegas-like magnet of bawdy behavior. For those looking for something to do, there’s the New England Air Museum and the Connecticut Fallen Firefighters Memorial. Even the nearby airport — Bradley International — isn’t that memorable.

My name is probably in the Ashley Madison data dump, but I'm one of the lucky ones, because my wife knows all about it.

So, as divorce lawyers' phones ring off the hooks, spouses give their partners the Donald Trump treatment with forced deportation from the bedroom, and the internet gives birth to searchable data bases of Ashley Madison info, here's how I got caught up in the web's most humiliating hack:

Soon after Inside Jersey magazine's inception, when I was on the staff of The Star-Ledger, editor Rosemary Parrillo began nudging me for a story exploring the sex lives of New Jerseyans, especially those who lived on the edge: swingers.

"Come on," she said. "Let's see what you can find out."

After covers that had lauded the state's best doctors, schools, roller coasters and hot dogs, the magazine wanted something sexier. Literally.

Munchmobile, meet Bunchmobile.

A cursory investigation revealed that while New Jersey probably wasn't Hedonism by the Hudson, swinging was a lot more prevalent than most of us (particularly sheltered 50-something suburbanites) thought. Websites that catered to all sorts of sexual preferences boasted memberships in the tens of millions.

Even if those numbers were overinflated, and they probably were, swinging was still prevalent.

"There are thousands and thousands of swinging couples in New Jersey," one veteran swinger told me, "and it's even bigger in New York and Pennsylvania."

So, after each story I filed for the magazine – on Gov. Chris Christie, or Frank DiPiscali, the Bridgewater Township guy who helped Bernie Madoff pull off the world's biggest con, or Ann Mara, the charming matriarch of the New York Giants who since has passed -- Rosemary would prod me:

"When are you going to do that swingers story?"

Eventually, I got a green light at home from my wife and off I went. But where do you find swingers? Trust me, it ain't at the cucumber display of the local Stop & Shop. I decided to cast a wide net.

I placed and answered ads on Craigslist and found couples who were swingers and other couples who didn't swing but, with large secluded homes outfitted with hot tubs, pools and "a mattress room," hosted parties for a second income.

In 2011 and 2012, despite a hangover from the Great Recession, swinging was lucrative. People found money for sex-- maybe in the couch cushions, dropped by previous lovers.

To search, I joined several websites: Adult Friend Finder, Ashley Madison, Plenty of Fish, Swinging Lifestyle and others, including a few internet communities whose raw names I can't print here.

Back then, Ashley Madison, while mostly a site for people looking to have affairs, also included profiles of men also looking for couples, and couples soliciting men and women.

Many of those profiles, I came to learn, were bogus.

Still, through those sites, I found people willing to share their sexual experiences with me, if I protected their identities. The magazine piece was born.

In 2014, I flirted with the idea of a "Where are they now?" story – a look back at those people who had appeared in the original story -- and I rejoined some of the sites. For almost all of the them, I never asked for last names or phone numbers. We had arranged interviews via the websites and anonymous email addresses.

Where they still swinging? Were they still married? What happened to a woman whose marriage crumbled under the weight of swinging: Did she find love?"

But as I returned to the websites and those anonymous emails, I couldn't find them. For many swingers, the lifestyle apparently has a shelf life.

"You do it until you get tired of it," I remember one swinger told me. "The problem occurs when only the wife or the husband gets tired of it and the other wants to keep going."

When the Ashley Madison hack was first made public recently and I waited for the other stiletto to drop (along with my address and credit card info), a frightened swinger from the magazine story found me through LinkedIn. She and her husband were no longer swinging. We discussed the hack.

"I'm terrified that someone will hack into old information on some of the swinging sites my husband and I were on," she wrote. "There were photos. We deleted the pictures and profiles. But are they really gone? This is scary. Back then, we didn't even think about hacking."

She wondered if all of her skeletons would come tumbling out of the closet one day.

Maybe so, I told her.

Because now, too late, we realize: People with bad intentions can get a key.

Istanbul: Turkish prosecutors have demanded jail sentences of up to 177 years for 29 people in the southeastern province of Adana suspected of setting up swingers’ clubs, local media reported on Monday.

Turkish police arrested 53 people in May on suspicion of pimping and prostitution in raids on 25 addresses in five provinces across the south and southeast, after receiving reports that patrons of swinger clubs were bringing prostitutes to the sex parties.

Of the 53 people taken in for questioning, 29 were brought to court to face charges, with 15 placed under arrest and others released pending trial.

The suspects are facing jail terms ranging from three to 177 years each for “setting up a criminal organisation with the aim of engaging in criminal activity”, “prostitution,” “human trafficking” and “obscenity,” Dogan news agency reported.

Dogan said that the ringleader couple - a 25-year-old university student and his girlfriend - initially used social media to organise wife-swapping parties for married couples free of charge.

They later rented a luxury villa to host customers, including single men from the neighbouring provinces of Mersin, Kayseri, Osmaniye and Sanliurfa.

The couple, who did not accept customers from Adana for security reasons, charged the single men 1,000 Turkish Liras ($360 U.S.) for each swingers’ party, Dogan said.

The suspects include a married woman, who told the police she accepted money for sex in order to support her destitute father.

An Olympia-based nurse-practitioner faces charges of unprofessionally conduct after a female patient told state investigators the nurse took her to swinger clubs in Portland and Everett.

An illegal party at a swingers club that led to a reprimand for a Portland fire official now appears to have spelled the end for the venue, too.

Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso said Friday that it would close as of this weekend, citing legal troubles stemming from a June 2014 incident for which Assistant Fire Marshal Doug Jones was given a letter of reprimand.

The club had requested a permit for an anniversary party that would use recently renovated space in the building. When the permit — which club owner Paul Young said had previously been routinely approved — was denied, the club threatened to sue the city in response.

Jones, he later later admitted to city investigators, then told Young that no fire inspectors would be working if they held an unpermitted anniversary party.

But a fire inspector did show up and found the club didn't have a permit to use its upper floors, and an Oregon Liquor Control Commission inspector determined the club didn't have authorization to serve alcohol in that part of the building. (Young said he wasn't aware the temporary liquor license hadn't been approved.)

Smith said the club had already been in negotiations with the city over occupancy limits for the club.

The tensions with the city escalated after the June incident and the subsequent investigation, he said, and the violation led to an effort to revoke the club's liquor license. The cost to fight that sanction has been "significant," Young said.

He said Jones had misled "with a wink-and-nod conversation and leading me down a path to having that event."

"When you look at the nuances of the story ... you say, they're wanting to permanently revoke their license for this?" Young said.

Smith said he is "evaluating all options" and left the door open to reopening in the future.

A 4,000 square foot house in a quiet, gated Texas community is causing quite a stir. Neighbors say the single family home doubles as a swingers club on the weekends.

The Hills of Bear Creek is a gated subdivision outside Fort Worth, Texas. Last year, people who live in the area noticed that one house on Hidden Meadow Court was attracting dozens of cars at odd hours on the weekends.

As CBS News correspondent Vinita Nair reports, Carter's real neighbors say they have had enough.

They've filed a lawsuit alleging that homeowner Randy Carter has been running an illegal business out of his home -- a swinger's nightclub that he advertises on a website called "NaughtyNeighbors.com."

Chase Patterson lives next door with his wife and two young children.

"We've never counted the cars but I've seen at least 85 of them come in and out in a day," Patterson said

Carter was arrested in 2013 for illegal dumping on his property. Aerials taken this week show at least five beds lined up in one room. It was two months ago that the homeowner's association discovered the home featured on the Naughty Neighbors website.

On the webpage, the property boasts "private parties" with "light shows" and a "Pro DJ." There's even a "disco" complete with a "pole stage."

"It's pretty much a bar from what I understand," association president Velton Ellis said.

"I have been woken up at 2 and 3 in the morning from loud music," Ellis added. "My wife has felt the vibrations in the ground from the music."

Last week the homeowner's association filed a lawsuit alleging Carter is in violation of their rules by using his home as a business. It cites as evidence: "The defendant lists the cost per couple as $75" and "The operating times as Friday and Saturday from 8PM to 3AM." He also lists the maximum occupancy as 600 people.

"Hopefully the court will see in our favor he is definitely running a business and he will cease operations," Ellis said.

Patterson doesn't want to see a summer full of more parties.

"I think it concerns everyone, simply because of the safety of our families," Patterson said. "With multiple people coming in and out, it's our biggest concern. That is indeed why we live in a gated community."

Randy Carter and his attorney could not be reached for comment. According to Ellis, the homeowner's association gave Carter a warning before filing the lawsuit, which asks for an injunction as well as attorney's fees and unspecified damages. Carter has 20 days to respond.

SUMMIT TWP., MI – Renovations to a private club in Summit Township remain stalled after property owners failed to submit a conditional use permit to township officials by April 20, township Supervisor Jim Dunn said.

The property at 4200 Spring Arbor Road was purchased by Epicurean Developments LLC in December, Jackson County records indicate, and has since created a storm of controversy, with area residents wondering what kind of business property owners plan to open at the location.

Several concerned residents have pointed to a website that states a swingers club dubbed "The Club at 4200" is set to open this spring in Jackson. An address for the club is not listed on the site.

The members-only, couples-only club proposed on the website will feature "a secluded play area to the rear of the facility where your mind can run free," the website reads. The website also calls for members to "BYOB" in regard to alcoholic beverages.

The site includes a membership application page, and a link to "Swing Life Style" an online community for swingers across the country, including a list of swingers clubs in Michigan.

The manager of Epicurean, Angela Tyler, applied for and received a permit from Summit Township for renovations to the building in January, township records show. Tyler signed the application after listing the business as a private club and a dance hall.

Those permits have since been revoked by township officials, who said they require a conditional-use permit for renovations to move forward. The conditional-use permit will require the property owners to be more specific about their business plans, Dunn said.

The private club owners needed to submit their conditional-use permit by April 20 in order to expedite their renovations. Dunn said if property owners submit the permit by May 18, it can go before the planning commission June 16 and the full township board in July.

When asked what township officials can do if property owners submit an application for a swingers club, Dunn said they'll "cross that bridge when we come to it."

Tyler said last month she is leasing the property to tenants who "wish to remain anonymous" and doesn't know all details about the business the tenants are proposing. She said the tenants aim to "open in June" and will require patrons to "bring their own alcohol."

Tyler could not be reached for comment after her initial interview in March.

An LLC application submitted to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs lists "The Club at 4200 LCC" as organized by Brooklyn resident Daniel Friihauf. The application was approved by state officials Dec. 12.

A public records search for "Daniel Friihauf" in Michigan returned no one by that name or address.

The registered office address listed on the LLC application matches website designer and Brooklyn resident John Washburn's address listed on his business website. Washburn created the website advertising "The Club at 4200" opening this spring.

Washburn confirmed he lives and works at the address in question. When asked by the Citizen Patriot if Daniel Friihauf lived with him, Washburn said no. He declined further comment.

It was not immediately known if there is a state law that regulates swingers clubs. Spokesmen at the Attorney General's office declined to comment on the situation Tuesday, April 21.

There is one state law, passed in 1931, that calls for a person who operates "a house of ill-fame ... or any house or place resorted to for the purpose of prostitution or lewdness" as guilty of a felony, punishable by no more than five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

WSMV Channel 4



After Metro Council passed a zoning amendment that blocked a group of developers from opening a sex club near Goodpasture Christian School in Madison, many thought the issue was dead.

But developers may have found a loophole in the new law.

For months, the vacant building near Goodpasture Christian School has been the subject of controversy after members of the community found out the new owners wanted to open a swinger's club.

Opponents were so outspoken that last month, Metro Council passed a zoning amendment that stopped the club in its tracks.

Now, developers have filed a new set of plans with Metro Codes asking permission to renovate the building as a church.

"That, to me, in many ways just seems to be irreverent," said Ricky Perry, president of Goodpasture Christian School. "And it just seems like there's nothing you wouldn't stoop to to try to accomplish what you're trying to do."

The school sits next door to the property in question. Perry said the revised plans are essentially the same as before, only what was once labeled "the dungeon" has now been converted to a "choir room." And the former "game room" is now called the "fellowship hall."

"It's obvious to me that all they're trying to do is find another way to legally, or through some loophole, accomplish what they want to do," Perry said.

Metro Codes has given the owners permission to renovate as a church. Before they open for business, they will have to prove worship is actually going on behind closed doors.

Federal law specifically protects churches.

Though there will likely be some legal wrangling, Perry said he's convinced the community will prevail.

"If folks are trying to circumvent the law, we will expose that and we will exhaust every resource we have to expose that," he said.

Councilwoman Karen Bennett is currently working on legislation that would create a designated zone for businesses that want to cater to swingers and/or open sex.

A hotel owner believes he has found the perfect solution for revitalising his flagging business - by converting it into a swingers' paradise.  

Jon Huxley, 46, hopes to cash in on the Fifty Shades of Grey effect and attract guests from the gay and swinging communities at his hotel Westward Ho! in Folkestone, Kent. 

He plans to install sex swings, bondage rooms and dungeons and have rooms of differing sizes to cater for couples and multiple groups. 

Jon Huxley, standing outside his hotel Westward Ho! in Folkestone, Kent, is looking at 'developing' his premises to cater for swingers

He said: 'We have plans to attract tourists from the gay and swinging community for short breaks and weekends of adult fun.

'Obviously a lot of equipment will need to be installed like swings, bondage rooms, red room of pain and dungeons of delight.

'Food and drink will be provided as part of an all-inclusive hotel package and it would be a civilised and friendly environment.'

Mr Huxley will be hoping to recreate scenes like this from the hit film Fifty Shades of Grey

'It is not intended to be a seedy or dirty business. It is a respected clientele who enjoy taking their clothes off.' 

Mr Huxley said he has decided to appeal to the swinging community after rowing with the council over the use of Grade-II listed building. 

Jon Huxley hopes the change in hotel ethos can see his business grow

Councillors voted for an enforcement notice after neighbours complained of anti-social behaviour. Mr Huxley said the complaints had been about anti-social behaviour and noise from the street rather than from inside the property.

He said he would not need a council entertainments licence because there would be no live entertainment, loud music or dancing. 

Asked what locals might think of his plans he said: 'I do not involve myself in what happens behind their closed doors and they should not involve themselves in what happens behind mine.

'I have bills to pay and the income has to come from somewhere. They have seen fit to take away my current source of guests so I have to look for other sources.

'I can't attract tourists because there isn't a market for it anymore and that is a fact I have to deal with.

'This is a growing market and I can't think of any other market that is growing at the rate of this one.

'Fifty Shades of Grey has been a phenomenal success and this is a sleeping giant in terms of the opportunities that are there.'

Mr Huxley, who has owned the hotel for 13 years, said the special weekends would be controlled through advance bookings rather than being open to casual callers. 

They would be advertised predominantly through the internet or word of mouth with some advertising in 'appropriate places'.

A spokesperson for Shepway District Council told MailOnline Travel: 'We would expect the owner to contact the council to discuss any licensing requirements, and to obtain listed building consent for internal works. 

'The premises has currently got planning permission to be used as a hotel but does not hold a premises licence to sell alcohol. 

'Anything the owner wishes to use it for outside permitted use may well require planning permission or new licences.'

Police were awaiting the outcome of a post-mortem examination this week as they seek to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of a father-of-two from Edgware found floating in a pool at an adult “swingers” party.

Edmund Echukwu, 35, who lived in Springwood Crescent, was dragged from the pool by fellow partygoers at the “James Bond meets Pussy Galore-themed” party at a Hertfordshire mansion in the early hours of Good Friday.

He was pronounced dead after being rushed to hospital He had been one of 30 people attending the event, which was run by Richard Stanley and his partner Janet Harrison at their home in Radlett.
Last year the couple were featured in a Channel 4 documentary.

Props at the party included a roulette wheel, chocolate golden gun replicas and James Bond posters. This week neighbours of Mr Echukwu expressed sorrow and shock.

Margaret Brown, a resident of the same block of flats, said she was “devastated” and added: “It was unlike him to go to something like this.”

She said it had been his first time at a swingers’ party and that he had been taken there by two friends.

She said: “He had a previous partner, but lived alone. He was feeling low at the time of his death after being banned from driving, which caused him to lose his job as a carer.”

Mihai Stoica, 30, lived next door to Mr Echukwu. He said: “He was a very friendly, nice person. I was shocked when I heard. He was really polite.”

A statement on Mr Stanley’s adult swingers’ website read: “At around 1am, I got a shout that someone had sunk in the pool, so ran into the covered pool area, dived in fully clothed and pulled a 35-year-old Nigerian man to the pool edge, where several competent people helped drag his body into the CPR position. There was a qualified nurse present as well.”

Mr Stanley said that diving was not allowed in the 2.5-metre-deep pool.

He added: “Guests bring their own drink and this gentleman had apparently severely dented his own bottle of Jack Daniels.”

Hertfordshire police confirmed this week that they were investigating the death and they were awaiting the outcome of the post-mortem examination.

A&E confirmed Monday it has cancelled a controversial reality TV show following swingers in Warren County's Hamilton Township.

The buzz about the program's fate began circulating late Sunday after the network did not air the third show in the "Neighbors with Benefits" series Sunday, which aired at 10 p.m. Sundays on the network.

Tony and Diana McCollister, who are portrayed as the leaders of what's described as a thriving swinging culture in their Thornton Grove neighborhood, posted messages on Facebook and Twitter late Sunday indicating the show would not air and deferring all questions to A&E officials.

"#‎NeighborswithBenefits won't air this Sunday. Please direct all questions to A&E. We LOVE our fans & hope to be back on the air soon!" read the couple's social media posts.

A&E officials declined to provide details on why the show, which drew national criticism from both conservative groups and critics, was cancelled.

The nine-episode series followed several local married couples who swap partners and engage in extramarital relationships as they go about their regular lives as parents, professionals, soccer moms and little league coaches.

The portrayal of this 300-plus home suburban community as a hotbed for out-and-proud swingers sparked moral outrage from neighbors, who insist many of the show's cast members don't live in the neighborhood.

It drew calls for boycott of the show, its advertisers and the A&E network from Citizens for Community Values, One Million Moms and the American Family Association.

However, the show was also critically panned by reviewers, who called it "cringe-worthy" and filled with "manufactured drama."

"…most of the extramarital encounters within the show — despite a discretely placed bra here and some kissing there — are so awkward and stilted that there's nothing particularly sexy about them, to the point where the viewer-discretion advisory seems wholly unnecessary," Variety TV columnist Brian Lowry wrote in his reviewof the first episode.

"Because even if the audience suspends disbelief, the benefits associated with watching this show are barely worth getting out of — or for that matter, into — bed over," Lowry wrote.

"While the idea of swinging is supposed to be titillating, A&E's new reality show, 'Neighbors With Benefits' proves it's kind of anything but. In fact, after watching the premiere episode, anyone considering this lifestyle may quickly realize it's probably something best left as fantasy instead of reality" Entertainment Weekly's Gillian Telling wrote in her review.

In an interview on 700 WLW last month, the McCollisters defended their lifestyle and marriage.

"Our policy is honesty and truthfulness. Are our kids happy? Yes. Do we have a happy family? Yes. We might be different compared to other marriages, but it's okay to be different," Diana McCollister said.

HAMILTON TWP. -- Police in this Warren County bedroom community will be stepping up their presence in one neighborhood in anticipation of the Sunday premiere of a controversial new TV reality show filmed in the area.

Two suspects wanted in connection with a sexual assault investigation involving two Escambia County Sheriff's deputies have been arrested in Colorado.

Douglas Albert Manning, 47, and Leah Giannotti Manning, 40, were taken into custody at 12:30 p.m. local time Thursday in Colorado. They had been wanted on outstanding warrants for sexual assault, lewd and lascivious behavior and child neglect.

They are being held at the Fremont County Jail City in Florence, Colo., and are awaiting extradition to Escambia County.

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan expressed his gratitude to the sheriff's office Facebook community: "Many thanks to our media partners and followers on social media for working with us to locate these fugitives. It was a community effort."

The Mannings were being sought in connection with an investigation involving Escambia deputies Walter Michael Thomas, 44, and Mark Gene Smith, 40. The deputies have been charged with sexual assault on a victim older than 12. They are on unpaid administrative leave pending an investigation of the charges.

The Mannings worked as paramedics in Okaloosa County, and Leah Manning was previously employed at the Escambia County Sheriff's Office as a nurse in the Escambia County Jail.

In late September or early October 2014, Thomas allegedly visited the Mannings' home. A victim identified the Mannings as "swingers" who allegedly had multiple sexual partners.

The victim told police Leah Manning invited her into a bedroom where she engaged in sex acts with Thomas while Douglas Manning recorded the abuse with his cellphone.

The victim also reported multiple instances of abuse while visiting Smith in summer 2014. The incidents were reported through a child abuse hotline in February. Following an investigation, Smith and Thomas were arrested last Friday.

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Two activist groups are taking aim at an A&E show centered on a Tri-State community.

We are looking for relatable couples, ages 21-40, who are in a committed relationship and curious about the swinging lifestyle.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – News 10 discovered an illegal swingers club operating near a school in Terre Haute, alerted City Engineering and within 24-hours – that business is being shut down.

It may not look like much, but inside the building located at 1929 Locust Street, you’ll find adult material.

‘Hometown Adult Video’ has been in business for years. But, it’s the newly created business upstairs that has neighbors concerned.

“Yeah, the swingers club has been there less than a year,” explained Janice Peretti, neighbor. “I won’t go in there because they have really nasty things in there. No I won’t go in there at all.”

News 10 also found their website, ‘Terre Haute Topside.’

“There’s been a book store an adult oriented book store at that location for years long before the city ever had an adult oriented business ordinance,” Chuck Ennis, Terre Haute City Engineer explained. “So that use was ‘grandfathered’ in.”

Meaning the video store can operate within a residential area but the swingers club can not.

“The city passed an ordinance back in 2006 that set limits on where these businesses could be located,” Ennis continued.

The premier swingers club will not be shut down because of the business, it’s all about location. It’s actually near an elementary school just around the corner.

“These types of businesses…people don’t want these in their neighborhoods,” Ennis described. “They don’t want to live next door to one; they don’t want one next to the school.”

Ennis also stated an adult business cannot be within 500 feet of a school or church.

‘Terre Haute Topside’ is approximately 223 feet from Franklin Elementary, forcing inspectors to shut it down.

“Our job here is complaint driven, were not knocking on doors, ya know checking out places like this until we get a complaint. Somebody calls and complains and then we respond,” Ennis stated.

City inspectors is giving ‘Terre Haute Topside’ a few weeks to close up shop.

News 10 spoke with a man who says his wife owns ‘Hometown Adult Video’ and that the upstairs apartment they lease and their video business are separate from ‘Terre Haute Topside.’

A WOMAN’S life had been devastated after false details about her appeared on a swingers’ website.

A swingers party set to be held at a prestigious hotel on Dartmoor has been cancelled by the new owners.

Bovey Castle was to host naked pool parties for the erotic travel club in July next year.

The venue was to close its grounds while American company shoesonly.com threw the party for 100 guests.

They planned to create 'Pleasure Castle', described as being like a 'Downton Abbey' experience, only sexier.

The Shoes Only team visited the hotel earlier this year to discuss the plans to transform ‘fantasy into reality’.

The itinerary included a sexy renaissance fair in the hotel grounds with erotic costumes, live erotic dance shows, naked pool parties and foam parties.

Eden Hotel Collection, which owns Bovey Castle, has now decided to cancel the booking.

A spokesman for Eden Hotel Collection said: “The booking was made as we were acquiring the hotel earlier this summer and at the time we were unaware of the precise details of the proposed event. Having investigated further, we have taken the decision that the event in no way fits with the core values of our businesses and have taken immediate steps to cancel the booking.

“Bovey Castle has always been a hugely popular destination for families and as the new custodians of the hotel we are very keen to maintain this and further enhance the experience for our customers.”
