Sanctum (actually spelled ‘Snctm’ but f**k that) is the world’s most exclusive sex party. If you’re like me, you probably didn’t even know that there are enough high-end sex parties in the world to make some more exclusive than the others. I’ve always figured there were like 5 or 6 major sex parties on the planet, one for each of the cities you’d expect (NYC, L.A., Amsterdam, Moscow, Paris, and Berlin).
Sanctum isn’t just a singular sex party, it’s a sex party that’s held each month in Los Angeles and NYC (so 24 parties a year between those two cities), and it has satellite parties during events like the Cannes Film Festival. Typically, men have to shell out $1,850 per party, or they can drop an annual fee of $75,000 for admission to every party of the year, but this option’s limited to only 11 men. Ladies get in free, but they have to send full body pictures (non-nude is okay) to Damon Lawner, the founder of Sanctum.
So what does the $1 million lifetime membership get you? Well, this whole thing started when Lawner, the founder of Sanctum, decided to release three lifetime memberships. The first two sold for $350,000 and $425,000, and he’s selling the third one for $1 million after seeing how quickly he could make a shit ton of money (at least I assume this is his reason).
With the lifetime membership, you’ll get entry to every Sanctum sex party ever and then some (via NYPost):
The plan gives you access to all parties, as well as a “24/7” erotic concierge, who can teach you everything you need to know about sex, including foursomes, BDSM and juggling multiple lovers. An “initiation ceremony” will be held at the club’s New York Fashion Week masquerade on Sept. 9.
“It gets you bragging rights, and you get to be me at the events for life,” Lawner told The Post. “Tables, special-event tickets for yacht parties in Cannes, our upcoming events in Rome and Moscow, private classes in erotic arts, all included.” via
$1 million seems like a comically foolish amount to spend on a membership to anything. To put that in context, the most expensive golf club membership in the U.S. is $312,112 (Liberty National in Jersey). But, you’re also getting a 24/7 sex concierge (whatever the fuck that is). Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Bill Maher have been spotted at these parties in the past. So you’re also gaining a lifetime entrance to a party with celebs if that’s something you’re into. I just can’t fathom spending $1 million on a membership to sex parties, but then again, I can’t imagine spending $1 million on anything other than a house or boat.
The NYPost took a look at just what happens at these sex parties. So if you’re curious and what to read more just follow this link and head on over to the Post.
