Looking for something to do in New York City this weekend? Well, if you’ve got a box of condoms and a 10-digit balance in your bank account, you might be able to take part in the most “elite” sex party in New York City, made up of Wall Street types and various other horny members of New York’s best, brightest, and bangable.
It’s all happening in a Flatiron Loft on Saturday Night, thanks to Killing Kittens, the London-based, members-only sex club that professes to be “the world’s network for the sexual elite.” Killing Kittens, which is named after a slang term for female masturbation, was founded in 2005 by Emma Sayle, a close, personal friend of Duchess Kate Middleton, in order to better “connect” the elite. (Hey, they were this close to being called “Flick The Bean” or “Beating Around the Bush.”)
And “connect” she has: Since its inception, Killing Kittens has attracted around 10,000 regular partygoers, including A-list actors, British aristocrats, sports owners, and “name is on multiple buildings in New York,” according to Gwyneth Romein, a 46-year-old who works in consulting, and will be flying in for the event. “He’s from a well-known family in banking, shall I say.”
If you’re getting a vibe of a certain Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman movie from 1999, you’re not totally off-base. “It’s like ‘Eyes Wide Shut,’ but realistic,” said Romein, who has attended nearly 20 Killing Kittens events. Jeez, there’s such a thing as being too much of a superfan, you know. This woman even hosted one of these parties at her house in London.
Sayle was inspired to start Killing Kittens while working in PR, where many of her clients were in the adult industry, and realized that women should be running the sexual world. “It just opened my eyes…everything was being run by guys,” she said. “And it was a time when ‘Sex and the City’ had just launched and suddenly there were these girls talking about vibrators on national television. The female sexual revolution thing was going on.”
How much will one of these parties set you back? Not as much as you might think: $100 per woman, $250 per couple. No single guys, all men must be accompanied by a female, so…tough luck, gents. Find a date, a friend, or, if you’re really a weirdo, ask a cousin or something. If you’re into that sort of thing. But the vetting process is very thorough. You’ve got to be between 18 and 50, and while you don’t have to be a supermodel, “we just ask for nice-looking people,” said Sayle. Potential members have to submit photos.
“It’s nice-looking people taking care of themselves. For example, we might get someone who is a size 14 or 16 US size and they’re massive, and they send us a photo and they might be in some bondage gear, and you just say, ‘No, that’s not a pretty sight.’”
Well, I guess I’m out. That, and the bank account thing. I can barely afford a McDouble off the dollar menu, let alone a rich people sex party. But it seems to be doing well; Killing Kittens brought in $1 million last year, they’re launching a branch in Australia soon (G’day, wankers!), and they have 43,000 members who use their website to “network” with each other in various orifices.
According to the New York Post, as of Tuesday, Sayle says 60 people have signed up for the NYC event, including a group of British female bankers who work at UBS’s Midtown office, and a shitload of models.
Well, if you want to give it a shot, you can check out the website and try to register for future parties, including a sexual romp in the Hamptons planned for this summer. Just remember: Porn is a lot easier and cheaper..
