Despite having a large gay community, Stockholm lacks the sex culture of nearby Copenhagen. While Swedes have a cultural love of saunas, the gay saunas were closed in the s during the AIDS crisis, never to reopen. The sex scene heavily favours meeting online, but horny tourists still have a few options to get their rocks off.
But clubgoers make up for the lack of hours with the level of action. Complete with a darkroom, slings, bootblack station and dancefloor, the club is simultaneously cruisy and social. Regular members greet each other with warm hugs, while newcomers are made to feel welcome. Easily missed from the street, the club entrance is marked only by a tiny sign and a doorbell. The club maintains a fetish dress code: Special events include naked nights, piss parties and seasonally themed evenings like Merry Crisco.
All visitors must fill in a form and pay a membership fee, even for a single entry. The action gets heavy in the backroom, with plenty of full-on fucking and sucking. Although there are several scattered around the city, most of the action is concentrated at two places.
US Video is the most popular. The main floor sells toys, DVDs and clothes, while the basement is a cruisey maze of video cabins and darkrooms. Condoms are not always available, so be sure to bring your own. The cover charge krona gets you a single entry through the imposing metal turnstile, so if you need any supplies from the store, be sure to get them before you head downstairs. The upstairs hosts a tiny selection of DVDs and toys, while the lower level is a maze of cabins and cinemas, with plenty of glory holes and a sling.
Unlike a conventional video club, it features a shower and douche station, with towels available at the front desk. The club is busiest on theme nights, which include Naked, Underwear and Blackout parties. Even if the city errs on the conservative side when it comes to public sex culture, with a little effort, visitors to Stockholm will find plenty of action.
