A New York gay sex club has faced criticism after it charges more for bottoms to enter the club compared to tops.
Private club Anonymous were reportedly charging $25 entry for tops and $65 for bottoms at their second group sex night in Brooklyn over the weekend, according to Gay Star News.
Anonymous promoter Luke said the vary in prices was suggested by a prior party attendee who wanted to see a particular kind of group sex event, with more tops and fewer bottoms.
He said: “I actually didn’t create the top and bottom pricing. That was suggested by the same [self-identified] cumdump who suggested the party.
“The way the party works is that bottoms volunteer as a cumdump. They are placed into position for the entirety of the party and stay there as long as they want.”
Luke goes on to explain that the different prices was to ensure a ratio of participants.
He said: “I’m a big big old bottom, and this has always been a fantasy of mine, but for it to work – and for the experience to be achieved for the cumdump bottoms – we need a huge ratio of tops to bottoms, which means discounting admission for anyone who wants to top.
“That’s also part of what the bottoms are paying more for – guaranteed high numbers of tops.”
The prices, Luke added, was not based on their sexual identity but on what role they wanted to take for the evening.
“If someone is versatile they can play as a top,” he added. “They just can’t switch over to bottom during the party because the bottoms have already volunteered for a limited number of spots in advance.
“I hope this clears up some of the ‘cumtroversy’. I wish I had a shocking or controversial reason for charging bottoms more, but no, I just wanted to centre a party around bottoms who have a gang-bang fantasy, and that means making it easier to attend if you’re eager to play the complementary role in this scene.
“In terms of policing the event, I have staff throughout the space. We do regular check-ins with our bottoms to make sure they are feeling safe, comfortable, taken care of properly and if they need bathroom breaks or to take time out we can help them do that.”
