The company that hosts the 'world's most exclusive' sex parties completely sold out of tickets from 19 July until October, as the UK reopens again after the easing of nearly all Covid-19 restrictions.
It's been a tough 18 months for everyone, but few have had it as tough as those who own nightclubs and put on large events.
That counts double if your events are fundamentally incompatible with social distancing, and might involve quite a bit of touching.
Killing Kittens was founded by Emma Sayle in 2005 and has quickly garnered a reputation around the world for their hedonistic celebrations of sexuality, as well as their famously rigorous vetting process for attendees.
Now, they're back, and Sayle says they're more in demand than ever before.
She told LADbible: "Back in April we released tickets for July and August and sold out within six hours, then we doubled more events than we'd normally do in those months because August is usually quiet, and then they sold out, so we're now sold out through until October.
"[On Tuesday] we released tickets for more events for five more events up until the end of November and they're almost sold out now.
"A couple of them are sold out, so it's really good.
"I just don't want another bloody delay where I have to move three parties like I've had to do in the last three weeks.
"We are ready to go, everything is sold out, we've doubled the amount of events, we've got new venues and new concepts that we're launching on top of the ones that we were doing anyway - so, in July we've got four events in July, six or seven in August, and we're back in New York.
"We've had to find new venues due to demand, that's why we've launched different concepts."
Killing Kittens works on a model that puts women in control, and only women - or those in a couple - can apply to get tickets for their events.
In the past, they've been known for their exclusive attitude to admitting members, and while you don't have to be chiselled out of marble to attend, you will have to submit some photos.
In case you're interested, one of those new concepts is called Kreatures of the Night, which is 'an immersive club night' which Emma describes as: "Like a cool club night, but some of the areas we've got dungeon-y play areas, so you've still got the whole Killing Kittens stuff."
She added: "But, if you want to go and have a really good night dancing and clubbing, and keep your clothes on, that's all covered as well."
It's easy to see why events such as Killing Kittens' parties might be so popular at the minute.
After all, many people have spent a long time cooped up in their houses, without the chance to meet people, or enjoy any kind of physical contact with people outside of their 'bubbles'.
As Sayle puts it: "People need a release.
"The bottom line is that we're animals, and animals need social and physical interaction, that's how we've evolved, and without that social and physical interaction, we die.
"Isolation kills people. You can't fight animal instincts, can you?"
