LAST PARTIES AT THE CHELSEA CLUB HOUSE?


Are Tonight's and Thursday Night's PEAK parties the last ones at the Chelsea Club House? The gentleman who has been hosting The Club House Parties for quite a few years now (first in Greenwich Village, then the East Village, and for the past couple of years in Chelsea close to Penn Station) posted on his blog today that tonight, Tuesday, August 18th and this Thursday, August 20th are "likely" the last parties he will be hosting there, so if you would like to have one last hurrah in that space, it sounds like you only have tonight and Thursday to do it. Here is what he posted...



"Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Tues 8/18 and Thurs 8/20 parties will likely be the last ones at the W.30th St. space.  As this is a new development, I don’t yet know where or when the parties will continue.  I hope you’ll attend these final two parties, to give it a great send-off.  Thank you for your support."

You can find the details of the party at http://groupsexinthecity.com/party/peak-safe-sex-party/58

You can keep an eye on the host's blog for future information at http://theorgyguy.blogspot.com

SEX PARTY SCAM

It has been brought to my attention by one of the astute members over at groupsexinthecity.com that there appears to be a somewhat large-scale scam happening tonight regarding parties in the NYC, NJ, Miami Beach and Beverly Hills areas. Even if you weren’t planning on attending one of these events this evening, you might want to give this blog post a lookover to keep you from being taken advantage of in the future because, as J.M Barrie once wisely said, all of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.

The aforementioned member contacted the GSC Admin team today asking if they had heard of “The Men Event” sex party. He learned of this event from a listing on adam4adam posted under the profile name TheMenEventNYC. He said he was interested in attending but thought it was odd that he had to buy tickets in advance through eventzilla. Let me first say that there are in fact completely legitimate party promoters that ask for attendees to pay in advance for their events, so that in and of itself does not necessarily mean the party is a scam, but I will get to what and who to trust regarding that a little farther down. It is certainly not a usual practice and you should always be wary when asked to spend money up front.

The member was curious to find out if the party was legitimate or not so he decided to visit the address where the party is supposedly happening this evening according to the information on the event purchase page. What he found at the address was a townhouse that appears to be under renovation. So this was looking more and more suspicious all the time.

Now I certainly am not one to throw around the word “scam” lightly, but once I had a look at the event page myself, I saw that there were certain immediate red flags that stood out with this one. First of all was the claim that there are usually around 200 guys at each party. So that would make this one of the biggest parties in the city and so it would seem curious that neither I nor any one of my party-going acquaintances know about it. Who are the 200 guys going to this party? I’m the first to admit that there are likely many parties in this city that I have yet to hear about, but that is because they are under-the-radar smaller, more private affairs (presumably wanting to stay that way). But a party of 200? And what was even more suspicious was the description of the party itself, a portion of which reads: 


“The Exclusive House in Upper East Side (Manhattan), includes a bar, clothes check, a stage with nude dancers, a maze, a live DJ and huge “wet areas” with a lounge area to watch porn and chill. You can fuck ANYWHERE you like!

This is a "SAFE SEX" (NO CONDOM FREE) and drug-free event. 18 to party, 21 to drink.

Our parties are 'WATERSPORTS FRIENDLY' - but not essential. You do not have to be "into W/S" to come to our parties. We get the hottest youngest crowd of any party in NYC, and lots of our guys are not into W/S but come for the sex, the hot boys/ free drinks / good music.... ;)

Is a safe sex event with 200 guys at the house....it's got a stage, a live DJ, clothes check, an open bar, chill out lounge and huge 'wet' play areas, a maze with booths, and several tubs, and private showers you can use any time during the party."


Replace “Upper East Side (Manhattan)” with “Park Slope (Brooklyn)” and it sounds an awful lot like GBU, doesn't it? (Well, when GBU was still a safe sex party that is.)  And the reason why I mention this is because the GBU host emailed his list back in May to inform them that someone was running a scam by impersonating him and trying to sell advanced tickets to his parties online. Just like this gent is trying to do now (and this guy’s Adam profile even mentions that he also hosts parties in Park Slope). And he’s doing it with a description that sounds like a cut-and-paste job from one of GBU’s old invite emails.

What makes this cut-and-paste job even more apparent is that the text written before and after the party description is full of some pretty noticeable grammatical errors as if it was written by someone without the best command of the English language. Here’s a sample: 


“If the event appears like "Sold Out" and you wanna still coming to the party, you can make a payment higher than $32 if you coming alone (ADMIT ONE) and a payment higher than $37 if you coming with a friend (ADMIT 2x1)”


Does that sound like the same person that wrote the oh-so-very-similar-to-GBU description that then follows on the page? And then there is not only how that sentence is being said, but what it is actually trying to say, which is basically that you can still buy a ticket even if the event is "Sold Out" by paying an unspecified amount above the already exorbitant $32/37 ticket price. Now that is very unusual indeed.

At this point I was fairly convinced that this was indeed a scam (to put it mildly). Of course there was absolutely no information about the host in the “Organizer” section – no contact email, no website, no phone number, nothing. , but then I clicked on the “View Other Events” link in that Organizer section and that took me to a page that really convinced me that something evil was afoot. The page had a listing of “Events hosted by Jonas Jonas” that listed nine additional parties in three other locations (Elizabeth, NJ, Miami Beach, FL, Beverly Hills, CA) that the “organizer” was selling advanced tickets for and was supposedly also hosting tonight at 10pm. Wow. Impressive. That is a host with serious super-human powers to be able to host ten parties concurrently in four cities coast to coast. Now is it entirely possible that this one organizer represents multiple hosts that just so happen to be hosting ten parties at the same time? I suppose anything is possible. But extremely unlikely. So I call a scam on this one.

I highly suspect this is the same person that was duping unsuspecting GBU-ers out of their hard-earned cash a few months ago, so I encourage you all to keep an eye out for similar scams in the future. Just keep this in mind: NEVER PAY FOR A PARTY UP-FRONT UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONFIRM THAT THE PARTY AND HOST IS FOR REAL! Obviously the really large parties around holidays and Pride which are hosted by well-established party promoters (like Daniel Nardicio for instance) are going to, at times, sell tickets in advance. And there are times when hosts will ask guys to pay up front if the host needs to pay in advance for a space and needs to make sure there will be enough in attendance to cover costs. The host of the Milk Chocolate parties sometimes does this. And the host of Footmennyc recently announced he will be doing it as well. But those are two well-established parties that have been around forever so you can feel somewhat secure that they won’t be skipping town with your money.

To try to determine if a party is “legit” or not, check to see if the party is listed on groupsexinthecity.com and, if so, if anyone has written reviews or posted comments about it. When in doubt, remember that google is your friend. If you can’t find any information anywhere online regarding the party or the promoter/host then proceed with heightened caution. 


If you don’t remember anything else about this post, please do yourself a favour and remember: “DO NOT EVER PAY UP-FRONT FOR A PARTY UNLESS THE PARTY OR THE HOST IS WELL-ESTABLISHED AND YOU CAN VERIFY THAT YOU ARE DEALING DIRECTLY WITH THE HOST, OR THROUGH THEIR OFFICIAL WEBSITE! (No, a page on eventzilla does not count as an official website.)

Here is a link to the event page in question. Have a look so you may have an idea of what you might want to look for in the future. I have reported this user to eventzilla so in case the pages are taken down, I have included screenshots of the pages below.

UPDATE:
The GSC member who originally brought this to my attention forwarded me the message exchange he had with the supposed host on Adam. In it, the host who calls himself "Jonas" claims that he hosts bi-sexual parties every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn. I have just confirmed with the owner of the 5th Avenue space that "Jonas" is indeed a scammer and is not in any way associated with that space.

Thanks for reading and,  as always, stay safe and "let’s be careful out there!” (in more ways than one)

A Sex Party GUIDE to PRIDE




Ah Pride week. The rally, the parade, the fireworks, and of course, all of the fresh-from-out-of-town meat (I’m sorry, did I say meat? I meant MEN of course…) wanting a taste of that sexy seediness that NYC is known for. And I am happy to say that despite the best attempts of the city, corporations and past mayors, seediness is still to be found if you know where to look for it. Especially around Pride. Because just about EVERYONE is having a party this week / weekend. You can find the vast majority of them listed at groupsexinthecity.com but for those of you who are seeking some guidance, here is a look at the city’s most popular parties.

If you are from out-of-town, like to play safe, and don’t want to leave with more than that NYFD t-shirt for your nephew, you might want to check out my blog entry on the importance of playing safe at NYC sex parties before you head into the fray. 

If you want to minimize your exposure to STDs this Pride, there are three great safe-sex parties going on this week / weekend where you can lower your chances of exposure while still having tons of sucking and fucking fun. For the fit athletic crowd, check out PRIVATE PARTY on Wednesday and MEN’S DEN’S ASS ACTION HOTEL PARTY on Friday, and for the Bear crowd, don’t miss the BEEF HOTEL PARTY on Saturday.

The rest of the options below allow both barebacking and safe sex so attend those at your own risk.

Here are some of the highlights you might want to consider over the next five days.

Wednesday



The first major Pride Party of the week is also NYC’s biggest and longest running safe-sex party PRIVATE PARTY. Looking for slim twinks and muscular gym bodies? You’ll find them here. Social, safe, fun, hot, playful, and a great party for first-timers. But contact the host now so you can get your phone interview in time before the party, there is a bit of a screening process for this one to get a high-caliber crowd. But if you are looking for safe play with a young, in-shape crowd of students and professionals, it’s completely worth it.
Location: Midtown West, Manhattan
Risk Factor: Safe sex only
Crowd: Average to fit and athletic only, ages 18 to 45, mostly white crowd
Time: 8:30-11:30
Donation: $26 including clothes check
Getting in: Email the host at PRIVATE.PARTY@MSN.COM




Thursday

Another big party for the young twink crowd is happening on Thursday night – GBU’s (GoldenBoysUSA) watersports themed NAKED KEGGER. Unlike Wednesday’s Private Party, this one doesn’t have a strict safe-sex policy so I suggest you proceed with caution at this one. But if size is what you are after, these parties usually attract a large crowd. Since this time around it is on an atypical Thursday night (the party is usually held on a weekend), it’s hard to know what it will be like this week, but I think it’s safe to assume you’ll find at least over 100 guys at this one. Although there is a watersports theme and there will be plenty of pissing going on, it’s kept to one area of the basement that can be avoided if it’s not your cup of chamomile.
Party: NAKED KEGGER
Location: Park Slope, Brooklyn
Risk-factor: Bareback and Safe-Sex
Crowd: Average to Fit and Athletic, ages 18 to early 30s, mostly white
Time: 7pm-3am
Donation: $20 before 9pm, $25 after 9pm, $10 for guys under 21 all night
Getting in: Email your pics and stats to ChrisHawke@gmail.com


Friday

Kick off Pride Weekend with complimentary margaritas and lots of hot intimate sex with the attractive and fit men of MEN’S DEN at their ASS ACTION HOTEL PARTY. If you are looking for a group where you can get a taste of all the different kinds of hot men NYC has to offer, this is it, as it’s known for being one of the more racially and culturally diverse selective parties in the city. There’s a bit of a screening process for this one as well and you have to become a Men’s Den member before you attend, so make sure you apply at least a day or two ahead of time for the best chance to get in.
Location: Midtown, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: Safe Sex only
Crowd: Fit and athletic only, ages 21 to 49, racially diverse
Time: 8pm til Midnight (door closes at 11pm)
Donation: $20 all inclusive (no additional fees for clothes check or drinks)
Getting in: Go to mensdenmen.com/pages/info for more info.

A bit later on in the evening NYJP will be hosting New York’s biggest Jock Party filled with all the hot bods and attitude the NYJP is known for. This is a nude-only party so no underwear or modesty allowed. There is barebacking allowed however so if you like to stick to playing safe, be aware that you may end up playing with others who are not. You’ll need to be on the invite list to attend, and be prepared to lift your shirt up at the door to show you fit the criteria. At $30, the donation is a bit steep (it’s the most expensive party on this list) so if you go to this one, you might want to plan to attend after 3am when the donation drops down to $20.
Party: NYJP
Location: Midtown, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: Bareback and Safe Sex
Crowd: Fit and athletic only, ages 21 to 40s, mostly white
Time: 10pm-6am
Donation: $30 including clothes check, $20 after 3am.
Getting in: Email pics and stats to thenyjp@gmail.com


Are you an in-shape athletic Black and/or Latino guy and into other Black and/or Latino guys? If so, head out to Park Slop,e Brooklyn for the Nubian Dukes BOXER NUBIAN party. I haven’t been to a Nubian Dukes party myself since I’m neither Black nor Latino and you need to be to get in, but the overwhelming consensus I get from those who have been is that a) the guys and action at this party are among the hottest in the city and. b) there is a lot of barebacking that goes on. So as long as you are fine with "b" and fit the criteria, then you might want to consider putting this party on your “must do” list.
Party: BOXER NUBIAN
Location: Park Slope, Brooklyn
Risk-Factor: Bareback and Safe Sex
Crowd: Fit and athletic only, ages 21 to 40s, Black and Latino only
Time: 11pm-6am
Donation: $22, includes clothes check.  
Getting in: Email pics and stats to nubiandukesnyc@yahoo.com


Saturday

On Saturday night it’s the Bear/Cub crowd that get to sexually celebrate Pride at their own safe-sex party, the BEEF HOTEL PARTY. With complementary margaritas and other drinks and no shortage of bear-on-cub-on-chaser action in an intimate hotel suite setting, this party may very well be more bare bears than you can bear! (Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself.) This is a members-only party, so make sure you apply to get on the membership list early so you can get an invite.
Location: Midtown, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: Safe Sex only
Crowd: Bears, Cubs, Otters, Chasers ages 21 to 59, very racially diverse
Time: 8pm-Midnight, door closes at 11pm
Donation: $20 all inclusive (no additional fees for clothes check or drinks)
Getting in: Go to assactionparties.com for more info. You can sign up for a BEEF membership at assactionparties.com/pages/beefapplication

But the night won’t be over just yet for my bear buddies. Once BEEF starts winding down around Midnight or so, head over to the (relatively) close-by EAGLE Bar which should just be starting to get packed around that time with even more hairy beary guys. Although this technically is a leather bar and not a sex club or sex party, I have no doubt that those looking for debauchery will find plenty going on there this Saturday night. Work your way through the crowd on the second floor to see what kind of hot public action you could get pulled into. 
Bar: EAGLE NYC
Location: Chelsea, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: Technically N/A (but you’ll likely find both barebacking and safe going on among the crowd)
Crowd: All types, but mostly bears and leather daddy types of all ages and races.
Time: Opens at 3pm, but the scene there on Saturday typically really gets going around Midnight and goes until 4am.
Donation: There’s not typically a cover, but a $2 bag check.
Getting in: Just show up. You can find more info at eagle-ny.com


For the non-bear-culture guys among you, fret not, you’re Saturday night still has lots of live-porn potential with the BATHHOUSE party at the Liberty Theatre. I admit this is a bit of a shot-in-the-dark for me since I believe this is the first year that they have held this large-scale dance/circuit-styled party, but it’s a recreation of a 70s-style bathhouse in an old Broadway theatre complete with men walking around in towels, living roman statues and an adult theater – how could it NOT be hot?
Party: BATHHOUSE
Location: Times Square, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: N/A?
Crowd: All ticket holders are admitted.
Time: 11pm until ?
Donation: Tickets are $20 if purchased in advance
Getting in: You can purchase tickets at vossevents.com/event.cfm?id=146466

You know that Nubian Duke’s party on Friday I mentioned? They also have one on Saturday, their BUTTNAKED DUKES party with a more “relaxed door” meaning you still need to be at least height/weight proportionate but don’t have to be ripped to get in. This one is being held in Midtown and it an all-nude affair. Again this is for Black and Latino guys only so if you aren’t either one, don’t waste your time, you are not going to get in.
Location: Midtown, Manhattan
Risk-Factor: Bareback and Safe Sex
Crowd: Average height/weight proportionate to fit and athletic only, ages 21 to 40s, Black and Latino only
Time: 11pm-6am
Donation: $25  
Getting in: Email pics and stats to nubiandukesnyc@yahoo.com


Sunday

Even with all the Pride festivities, there are still a multitude of sex parties going on Sunday and it looks like there’s one to fit just about every taste. Into bears? I’ve been told recently THE BEAR PARTY is a good one to check out. Looking for a fit and young crowd? Try the BOXERS AND BRIEFS party co-hosted by the hosts of the previously mentioned GBU and NYJP parties. Into BDSM? Check out the NEW YORK BONDAGE CLUB. Mutual Jacking off? The NEW YORK JACKS could be your thing. 









You can find the listings of these and all the upcoming parties at groupsexinthecity.com

Play safe, be smart, have fun, and Happy Pride!
