Swingers Hotel To Ban Sex When Guests Are Allowed Back In
A swingers hotel and bar has announced it will ban sex when it re-opens next weekend due to the government-implemented social distancing measures.
Xtasia, Swingers and Fetish Club in West Bromwich, west Midlands, will reopen on 4 July as a 'non-sexual' establishment.
On the website, they wrote: "In line with the most recent Government advice, and in consultation with Police, Council and Public Health, we aim to open the entire Xtasia complex as a 'Non-Sexual' bar and hotel from the 4th July.
"Please read the following information to see what we're doing to minimise the risks to you and our staff, and to ensure you are not turned away when trying to attend.
"A full risk assessment has been carried out on site and we are doing everything in our powers to make your trip as safe as we can."
The adults-only venue is in the pole position on Booking.com and boasts sex swings, bondage equipment, a dungeon and an indoor dogging site.
The owners say they will assist with the government's test and trace system, but will be discreet if someone's play mate is not their partner.

Temperatures will be taken on the door and anyone with high reading will be turned away. The hotel's 'playrooms' will be out of use when it reopens.
They website goes on: "Initially we can all only attend to meet socially, and no sexual activity is permitted, however over time as restrictions relax we aim to allow play to occur within a household group, and then eventually return to normal.
"We will be sticking to two metres for the time being as we have the room to do this, and it makes it safer for you and our staff.
"No sexual encounters are permitted between members. Every area within the club has a social distancing 'maximum number' clearly displayed at the entrance to it, no more than that number should be inside at any moment in time.
"If chatting to others at the club for considerable amounts of time, please ensure you know at least their first names or Fab ID.
"If we as a club contact you with a potential Covid outbreak, you need to be able to tell us who you were in close proximity to during the evening.
"We will be changing our T&Cs to allow us as a club to contact you should it turn out you might be infected.
"We would ask anyone who visits the club, and then contracts Covid within seven days to please contact us immediately so we in turn can contact other club attendees.
"If you need to be discreet, ie your play friend isn't your partner, etc. let us know so we can be extra careful with contacting."
