Several Malaysians and Singaporeans were arrested after Thai police busted an illegal sex party at a hotel in a notorious red light district in South Pattaya.
Officers raided the Tulip Hotel in the Phra Tamnak area at around 11.30pm on Saturday and found 11 men from around the world frolicking with 14 young Thai women attending a swingers’ party.
The people were engaging in group sex in rooms scattered with condoms, lubricants, sexual enhancement drugs and sex toys.
The items were collected as evidence and the men were detained for questioning.
It was reported that participants signed up through a website and each paid an admission fee of 1,500 baht (RM190) to take part in the “swingers’ party”, police told the Bangkok Post.
The party was held in a room on the hotel’s ground floor. The 25 people were found naked, indulging in sexual activities.
Hotel owner Sheng Liao Yang, from China, was arrested on suspicion of operating a hotel without a licence and hosting obscene events.
According to Naris Niwapantawong, district police chief for Banglamung, the men “exchanged partners with each other” during the sex party.
The raid was reportedly prompted by complaints from local residents that the hotel had frequently organised such activities.
“We received a complaint about the Tulip Hotel. We were told they organised sex parties on the weekends.
“My staff co-ordinated 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,” he was quoted as saying.
