Court OKs Group Sex in 'Swinger' Clubs Thursday, December 22, 2005 6:25 AM EST

The Associated Press OTTAWA (AP) — Two Montreal clubs that cater to group sex did not breach standards of decency, Canada's Supreme Court has ruled. Wednesday's ruling, written by Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, said group sex among like-minded adults in private does not meet the test of indecency. The decision might make it easier for "swinger" clubs or gay bath houses to operate without the threat of police intervention or arrest. The ruling dealt with two Montreal cases in which swinger club operators were charged with keeping a bawdy house. Canada's criminal code defines a bawdy house as a location that is kept for prostitution or indecent acts. James Kouri and Jean-Paul Labaye were both convicted, but the unsettled state of the law was demonstrated clearly when separate Court of Appeal rulings upheld Labaye's conviction and overturned Kouri's. The high court threw out Labaye's conviction and affirmed the Kouri decision. "Entry to the club and participation in the activities were voluntary. No one was forced to do anything or watch anything. No one was paid for sex," McLachlin wrote in reference to the Labaye case.

Here's the latest I found

is with deep sadness, as of June 11, 2005, Club Chameleon has closed its doors for the last time. During our eight and one half years of existence, Club Chameleon became recognized nationally, as a destination for lifestylers who travel to Phoenix. Thousands enjoyed the club for its professionalism, cleanliness, safety and for its aura of respect and understanding of members' differences. Our name recognition exceeded the swingers' world locally. Unfortunately, we may have become a victim of our own success.

Any news on this one?

By Beth DeFalco The Arizona Republic Sept. 23, 2002 12:00:00 Reprinted with full credit under fair use provision of the U.S. copyright law for education and no commercial purpose

Owners of four Phoenix sex clubs this week plan to ask a federal appeals court to stop the city from conducting more raids like the one that ended with their arrest Friday.

In 1999, U.S. District Court Judge Roslyn Silver denied the owners' request for an injunction against enforcement of a ban on live sex acts in businesses. Then in August, Silver ruled in the city's favor and effectively gave it the go-ahead for enforcement.

Despite the arrest of four sex club owners and operators Friday for violating the 1998 ban, the swinging apparently carried on.

Although patrons were technically violating a public indecency law, they were allowed to continue with their activities after club owners were allowed to hand over keys and instructions to subordinates.

Milo Fencl, owner of Club Chamelon, said his arrest came in retaliation for lawsuits he and three other sex club owners filed against the city.

"It certainly crosses my mind that that's the motivation," said Fencl, 56, who spent 14 hours in jail Saturday and, like the other three owners, could face up to 6 months in county jail if he is convicted.

Four of the five swingers clubs in the city formed an alliance to fight the ban as a civil rights violation. One that did not join the fight, Sociables II, was the only business where police did not find violations.

Fencl's lawyer, Nick Hentoff, said he thinks police tipped off the club. Police deny the accusation, but acknowledge that it appears the club had a heads-up on the raid.

Hentoff also questions why owners and operators were hauled off to jail for a misdemeanor offense.

Phoenix police said they were making a point.

"We will continue to arrest them as long as they violate the ordinance," said Phoenix police spokesman Detective Tony Morales.

A business is in violation if it provides "the opportunity to engage in, or the opportunity to view, live sex acts."
