Thai police have busted an illegal sex party attended by a group of foreign men, including Australians, at a hotel in Thailand’s most notorious red light district.
Officers arrested the owner of the Pattaya establishment after finding 11 men from around the world cavorting with 14 young local women.
Attendees paid $62 on a website to take part in the “swingers’ party”, police told the Bangkok Post.
Officers raided the Tulip Hotel at around 11.30pm on Saturday and found people having group sex and rooms scattered with condoms, lubricant, sexual enhancement drugs and toys, local media reported.
The items were collected as evidence and the participants were detained for questioning.
Extraordinary footage of the scene shows sweating, semi-naked, middle-aged men covering their faces with towels as police take photos and record video.
The tourists reportedly came from Australia, America, Britain, Canada, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Germany, Thailand, Cambodia, India and Ukraine.
Hotel owner Sheng Liao Yang, from China, was arrested on suspicion of running a hotel without a license and hosting obscene events.
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 at the weekends,” he said.
