Secret swingers unmasked after hotel pulls plug on Edinburgh orgy

COUPLES secretly planning to attend an orgy at a ­four-star hotel were unmasked when the event was canceled.

Many of the 200 guests had told friends, colleagues and relatives that they were going to a masked ball at Edinburgh’s Carlton Hotel.

But furious bosses at the hotel pulled the plug when they discovered it was actually a swingers’ party.

And those planning to attend were found out after friends and ­relatives read the story in last week’s Sunday Mail.

One source said: “Lots of couples had told pals and family that it was an upmarket costume ball and bought fancy masks and outfits.

“When the Sunday Mail reported that the hotel management had cancelled it because it was a sleazy sex party, there were some very awkward moments.

“They realised that the people they had told about the ‘masked ball’ would quickly realise the truth.”

The hotel was concerned it could damage their reputation

The event – organised on website ­Fabswingers – was cancelled when the hotel received an email asking if condoms would be supplied.

On the website’s forum, Laine, from Fife, wrote: “My parents read those papers and they knew I was looking forward to a masquerade ball in Edinburgh.

“My mum had altered my gown for me. They are not so naïve not to put two and two together.”

One mum, ­Glasgowish, wrote: “My kids knew I was attending a ball, even got the outfit and mask on to take pics so they could see mummy all pretty.”

I went to a sex club – and here’s what happened


When someone says the words sex club, what do you think of? Personally, I imagined them as places for exhibitionists, people with extreme sexual preferences and the odd perv, standing in the corner and w***ing himself off to the whole thing. I’m happy to report that I was very wrong. Last night, I visited Le Boudoir, a members club that hosts sex parties every week, held at a secret London location. In an effort to blend in, I’d dressed provocatively in the little black lingerie dress that I reserve for special occasions.

I’d also brought along a female friend, who we’ll call Cassandra, although that’s not her real name. As we arrived, the nerves set in. Le Boudoir is a bring-your-own venue, and I suddenly regretted that we’d only armed ourselves with one bottle of wine. I needn’t have worried though, as Master Boudoir, the club’s impeccably dressed host, had already prepared a special treat for us – personalized vodka bottles. How he found out that vodka is my tipple of choice, I’ll never know. As we enter the main floor, the club’s social room, the atmosphere is mixed; some couples are sat huddled together on sofas, while others are eyeing each other up, and one lady is having a spin on the stripper pole.

I tried the pole myself later that evening and was far less impressive, which the developing bruise on my bum is proof of. The dungeon, before the guests arrived Master Boudoir gives us a grand tour, while he tells us what we can expect in the coming hours. ‘We get lots of newbies, and I think what’s exciting for them is that there are so many possibilities here,’ he says. ‘People who come here definitely seem to have a great sense of humour, and they’re engaging and great characters.’ First up is the downstairs floor. It’s dark and inviting, and smells faintly of popcorn, a trick the club has implemented to conceal the natural smell of sex that’ll soon fill the air. As we descend the stairs, I spot a large bed with a TV above it, set to porn, and a large vibrator, free for all to use. An hour later I saw a woman give her partner a blowjob as she enjoyed the vibrator herself, so it definitely gets used.

Additionally, there are two glory hole rooms, where women and men can indulge in a strange penis or two. You never know what might come through the hole (Picture: Almara Abgarian) The building used to be a bank, and owners of Le Boudoir have kept many of the original fittings, including the vault which, coincidentally, is home to the dungeon. ‘The dungeon affords lots of excitement,’ Master Boudoir explains, including a padded wall, a St. George’s cross and a spanking bench with restraints. Sometimes, couples will say to me ‘Master Boudoir we’ve seen you do your thing, would you mind showing us your techniques’. ‘I’ve got my bag of tricks and I’m constantly adding to my implements, and it’s always to increase the woman’s pleasure. Each woman has different triggers and yearnings, so I’m very careful about asking what she’d like and I check whether she’s OK at each point.’ A few hours later, the dungeon is full. Master Boudoir is teaching me and Cassandra how to spank a blonde lady who is restrained on a bench, while she gives her partner a blowjob. Feeling somewhat awkward and out of place, I promptly apologise when I spank her, to which I’m met with kind laughter by both the woman and her partner. I’m encouraged to go ahead and ‘slap harder, she enjoys it’.

Meanwhile in the two prison cells, one of which has a sex swing, two couples are having sex as the whole room watches. It’s all very voyueristic, and I can sense which couples have been here before. It’s not a naked fest though – most of the crowd have their underwear on, while others are fully dressed still. I leave Cassandra and the Master to do their thing, and venture outside to the smoking area, where I chat to a few of the guests. It’s a mixed bag, but it’s a much younger crowd than I’d anticipated and most of them are fairly attractive. Especially this one gentleman from Scotland, who has come along with his female friend – I catch both of them in a swingers situation later that evening.

The Scottish gentleman admits it’s his first time at a sex club, and like me, he’s nervous. Another couple tell me they came along the night before, and found a lady to play with. She had come on her own, and apparently she also ‘came three times’. We should all be so lucky. Overall, the crowd is friendly – the seedy element that I’d expected isn’t present – but that’s not to say there’s not a lot of kinky sex, most of which takes place on the top floor. As I enter the room, I’m struck by how sensual the sex is. Yes, there’s definite f**king, but no one is in a rush, they’re taking their time and they’re enjoying having an audience. I sit down and take in the view: there are several couples having sex in front of me, while to my left there’s a woman orgasming as her lover plays with her. To my left, three women are getting head from their respective lovers. I’m surprised by how quiet the room is; the music is playing in the background and women are moaning softly, but no one is screaming load enough for the neighbours to complain. Lock her up (Picture: Almara Abgarian) The room is open to all. Whether this is the official way of doing things, I couldn’t tell you, but I had three men extend their hand to me that evening as a gesture that I was welcome to join him and his partner.

It’s actually incredibly polite, and I was both flattered and felt safe – if it’s a no, you simply shake your head, or smile and walk off. The only negative part of the experience was that despite the mischievous mood, as a single woman in a sea of sex offers, I still felt as an outsider, watching couples make love. But Le Boudoir offers different themes, depending on the night. On Saturdays, it’s couples and single ladies, but on Thursday’s a small amount of single men are welcome too. These are hand-picked by the club. In fact, the manager reveals that the club has 20,000 members and another 5,000 on the waiting list, and some of the less desirable men will never get a membership. Around 2am, I find myself on a sofa with Cassandra on the top floor, discussing the evening’s events with the club’s manager. On the sofa next to us, two ladies have switched partners and are giving the men blowjobs. They don’t seem to mind us chatting, though.

We decide that as far as casual sex goes, Le Boudoir is far superior to flicking through Tinder for a night of ‘Netflix and Chill’. Oddly, the former is far more respectful, even if you should find yourself in bed with multiple people in one night. You’re highly encouraged to find out for yourself, although I’d recommend bringing a plus one if it’s your first time. If I decide to return myself, I’ll probably do so with a male partner. And yes, I know what you’re thinking: did I accept one of the extended hands or find myself in the throes of passion with Scotland? The answer shall forever remain a secret, because a lady never tells and neither does Le Boudoir.

Scottish Parliament backs dotSCO campaign

The Scottish Parliament’s Public Petitions Committee today formally endorsed the dotSCO campaign, after receiving assurances from the Government that it was doing all it could to help ensure an application could be submitted to ICANN later this year. The unanimous vote cast by the Committee means that our campaign now has cross-party support – a crucial step in demonstrating to ICANN a widespread desire across Scotland and its diaspora for a Scottish domain. The dotSCO team are delighted that both Parliament and Government have been so supportive of our campaign. Less than nine months after we started collecting signatures to submit the petition, we are now well on the way to submitting an application to ICANN – no small feat.

First Minister announces support for Scots internet domain

dotSCO is delighted that the First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond MSP, has announced that the Scottish Government will be supporting a bid for new top-level internet domain (TLD) for the Scots community of interest online.

The Scottish Government setup a working group to consider a community top-level for the worldwide family of Scots in response to a petition from dotSCO earlier this year. As our previous newsletter highlighted our Policy Director, Davie Hutchison, has been an active member of that working group.

The First Minister has released research from the working group which shows that there is strong support for a new community TLD. 58% of organisations (from the public, private and third sectors) in Scotland support the creation of a Scots community TLD with only 18% being against. A huge 82% of organisations in the Scots Diaspora back the application with just 8% being against. 

As was indicate in the last newsletter the final choice of what string or code to apply for was still under consideration, either ‘.sco’ or ‘.scot’ .The research from the working group has shown that some 59% have supported ‘.Scot’ with 14% preferring ‘.sco’. With .scot being the clear preference of the community we will continue our campaign for a new TLD using that code.

The dotSCO campaign team is looking forward to the year ahead and helping to prepare the bid to ICANN for a new Internet domain for the worldwide family of Scots!

ICANN publishes Draft Application Guidebook

After literally years of speculation and several delays, ICANN have this month published the draft Application Guidebook for applying for new top-level internet domains. The Guidebook, although still in draft form, provides some of the detailed criteria that we will have to satisfy. In a few months there will be a second draft followed by the final version in the 2nd quarter of 2009. On the current timetable it looks like the window to make bids for new top level domains will open in Autumn 2009. If this was the case then we are looking at the early stages of 2010 for dotSCO domains becoming available for purchase.

ICANN are reportedly expecting up to 500 applications for new top level domains, some will be community bids like ours and dotCYM while some will be ‘open’ commercial projects.

The new top level domains will fall into 4 broad categories –   

(1) Commercial TLDs -such as dotSHOP or dotWINE. (2) ‘Vanity’ TLDs – such as dotEBAY and dotGOOGLE.

(3) City TLDs – such as dotNYC, dotBERLIN, dotLONDON and dotPARIS.

(4) Community TLDs – such as dotSCO, or dotCYM for the Welsh Community, dotGAL for the Galician Community and dotNAI for the North American Indigenous Community.

dotSCO or dotSCOT??

Since we began three years ago we have been campaigning for a new top-level internet domain for the Scots community of interest online, Scottish Culture and Scotland’s languages. The ‘string’ or ‘code’ that we have been using has be SCO, however we believe that since this top-level domain is for the community that it should be chosen by them too.

In the near future we are going to establish a mechanism to allow supporters of the dotSCO campaign to vote and chose their preference SCO or SCOT – the final decision will be up to you.
