‘Porn Sex’ Club With a Martha Stewart Theme Will Reopen May 17


Martha_StewartIt’s a good thing, as Martha would say: The old drugged-out bathhouse that was a black eye in the Gayborhood is being reinvented as a health-positive, safe place to play. After a host of industrial fixes to the old building, the interior design has gone from 1970s tacky to a 21st-century sex-den aesthetic.

Here’s how the interior is described on G Philly:

The main room on the first floor, previously decked out in cheesy straight-from-the-Caribbean décor, will boast a simple-and-clean “Martha Stewart” theme. Adjacent to this area and across from the newly beige-tiled foyer will be a contemporary theater room with a small stage for brand-name porn stars and stripper studs to romp around on….

Keeping on his promise, the basement will strip the bathhouse of its gym equipment (though he says there will be a separate, small gym space for guys devoted to “showing off”) and implement a dungeon for dark-and-dirty debauchery…

There will be a variety of themed areas: an “examining room” for those who want to play doctor; a “slurp ramp”; a room with elevated tiers of circle platforms for the more-flexible; and a glory-hole room with benches….

Despite the new owner’s promise of a “porn sex” experience (“shit you can’t do at home”), the coolest part of the interior will perhaps be the “soundproof STD-testing room on the third floor, where a representative from Mazzoni Center will be stationed for 30 hours each week.”
