Swing Low Sweet Sadomasochistics
On Reddit today, an angry letter was posted as a .jpeg regarding “Taste,” a “Swingers/Sex Club Illegally Operating at 45 East 34th Street #3.” The anonymous Samaritan who hung up the sign encouraged others to call 311 in an effort to shut down the “BDSM (bondage/discipline/sadism/masochism) events” that have been going on after dark, every other night of the week.
“During the day,” the letter reads, “various other businesses are run out of Suite 3, including “Basha Gallery,” “Bienvenue Ballroom Dance Center” and something called the “Dragonfly Body Workshop.” (We tried to contact all three “day businesses” at the location, as well as the people behind Taste, but have yet to hear a response.)
We don’t like to assume here at The Observer (it makes an ass out of you and your gimp slave), but it seems awfully naive of the note-writer … sounds like Taste is running a sex operation during the day as well.
But look at how legitimate Taste is! For a sex/swingers club, but still. They’ve got a pretty classy website going on.
