If you thought the sex parties you attended were out of control, one in Bangkok had 62 participants.
In what is being described as the biggest crackdown of its kind since lockdown restrictions were introduced in Thailand, 62 men have been arrested at a chemsex party at a popular Bangkok sauna.
An emergency decree has been in place in Thailand since last March in order to keep the coronavirus spread under control. Part of the decree states that public gatherings are currently illegal.
The men were arrested by police last weekend (Saturday 22 May) night at Faros Sauna 2 (which offers 50 bedrooms, a swimming pool and a karaoke hall – who doesn’t love a sing-song after getting railed?)
Drugs, needles and used condoms were found at the scene, according to Police Colonel Ekapop Tanprayoon, superintendent of Bangkok’s Wang Thong Lang District police station.
The superintendent told reporters that there “shouldn’t be so many people in such a crowded area” under the “current circumstances”.
The organisers and attendees of the party are facing charges of breaking Thailand’s strict COVID-19 restrictions. Police Colonel Ekapop Tanprayoon said that the men currently in custody could face up to two years in prison and a fine of up to 40,000 baht (£899).
According to reports, 30 of the men have also tested positive for drugs and will be charged with drug-related crimes, too.
