TORONTO, Ontario, May 16, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) More people are trying out group sex and partner swapping, said a report by the Canadian Press on Sunday, after last years Supreme Court decision to legalize swingers clubs in Canada.
Operators of private clubs offering group sexual activity said they have seen a significant increase in participation over the five months since the Supreme Court said such activity was not indecent and did not constitute public harm.
Aurora Ben Zion, who runs Torontos largest swingers club, claiming 13,000 members, told the CP the ruling made people more comfortable about experimenting with group sex.
They think, Im not a freak, its okay to do this, and Im going to try it out. It not only legalized it, I think it legitimized it in the eyes of public opinion.
The increase in activity does not come as a surprise to those who oppose the ruling. Mary Ellen Douglas is national organizer of Campaign Life Coalition. She sees the legalization of swingers clubs as a symptom of increasing moral decay in the country.
It shows we are becoming more and more degenerate as a nation. Sex clubs themselves are not new, theyve been around since Adam and Eve. But [the increase] shows the downward spiral of our country.
At the time of the Supreme Court decision, Gwen Landolt, vice president of Real Women of Canada, made a similar statement to LifeSiteNews, saying, The courts are gradually reducing public concern about morality and behaviour that is offensive.
There is a real trend to break down moral principles in Canadian society. Those principles have been built based on human experience about what is in the best interest of society.
Janet Epp Buckingham, director of law and public policy for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, told CP the issue is important because Canadians are concerned about swingers clubs
Theyre concerned about the fidelity of relationships, but theyre also concerned about the spread of disease.
Under the Supreme Court ruling, adult group sexual activity is legal so long as it takes place in a (somewhat) private setting, all participants give consent and money is not directly exchanged for sex.

Don't worry. All this will stop once hockey season begins.
Oh, kinda like BJ claiming oral sex isn't sex so it's ok?
BTW - Go Oilers
Lemme guess, 12,995 males hoping to get lucky with the 5 females in the club.
But by gosh...you better not light up a cigarette afterwards...........
"But by gosh...you better not light up a cigarette afterwards..........."
True, but this is Canada, so a joint's ok.
"Swingers Clubs" have been legal in San Francisco for years.The result has been that 50% of those over 16 have a virus that will eventually kill them and that costs $100K a year to combat.
Earlier today I posted my acceptance of suicide as acceptable, so this should come as no surprise...
So long as one is not a participant, why should he/she need to concern himself about either?
It hasn't ended yet.
Now that is unacceptable.
No, not that they have the (self-imposed) virus, or that they will die as a result, but that they get the rest of the taxpayers to pay for their "lifestyle"...
Swirling down the drain as we speak. When people are slaves of their baser desires, they cease to be fully human. A society peopled by animalistic human beings cannot govern itself, anarchy and bastardy will reign, and the result will be worse than anyone can imagine.
OK, someone had just drunk the bong water when the hospital asked him what the name of the baby would be.
I'm from St. Louis. As far as the Blues are concerned, it never started.
"Just more sickening "foreign" law that the US courts will try to force on us."
Naw, the gays already have their bathhouses. Unless the illegals want them, we don't have to worry. Feminists hate any kind of sexual interactions between men and women since they grew old and ugly.
Are you saying there are "domestic" laws prohibiting the activities described, however circumspectly, in the article you posted?
In which states? I'll be sure to follow the court cases as they are brought.
Exactly what happened with abortion.
Are swingers clubs illegal here?
