I know it can be the case, but why does everyone in the world seem to think that being involved in BDSM is always the same as being a “swinger”?!

Also, why is sex “disturbing”?!

People are weird.

Underground sex club found at Whiskey Row

by Joe Arnold


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — Workers preparing historic Whiskey Row buildings for interior demolition have discovered what appears to be the remnants of a sado-masochistic swingers club, abandoned for decades.


“This is the weirdest I’ve ever found,” said Greg Harris, the superintendent of the project for Sullivan-Cozart.


Two floors below Main Street, a large black and white logo displays the word “LATEX,” presumably the name of the club, painted on the century old wall.


From deep inside the subterranean blackness, a series of oil paintings depict a series of bizarre images, sexual and violent.


“Very disturbing,” Harris said.

Below one painting, a piece of equipment that appears fit for a torture chamber remains.  A wooden rack large enough for one or two people includes a headrest and a rusted chain that can be turned by a handle. A gear resembling a saw blade is connected to the handle.


Workers found sheets of plastic that they presume separated the sub-basement into different rooms, candles, a disintegrated couch,  a mysterious piece of cloth draped over a table and chair and another chair – covered in cobwebs and in a slow decay.


The project will save the facades of all seven Whiskey Row buildings in the project.  The interiors of three middle buildings will be saved, but demolition begins September 4 on the interiors of the other four buildings.


Crews have not yet had access to several parts of the buildings, “so we probably may see some more things,” said Brad Wilcox, a representative for the ownership group.

  1. The thing to remember about Louisiville is that it is a bible belt town. My mom lives there, and on Sundays the downtown is like a freaking ghost town. It’s crazy, the only time I’m there is generally on the way to or from Bonnaroo (a music & arts fest in TN).

      Kallypso Masters pretty much said the same thing!
      It looks like they still get up to naughty things, even if they don’t want to admit it!

  2. I love this…
    I always cheer when they find things like this, when little parts of people’s private life get uncovered by archeologists, years past date… It’s as if the people who lived/fucked/… there are brought to live again a bit.

      It’s great! Especially as it’s in such a conservative part of America.
      But I do wonder why they had the warning that the pictures weren’t suitable for children. There was nothing offensive there!

  3. I read this too..pictures..we want pictures!!
