A-list Hollywood sex club is coming to New York
Erotic members-only club Snctm — LA’s exclusive “theater of sexuality” — is bringing its “Eyes Wide Shut” parties to New York City and the Hamptons.
The private club, which holds monthly erotic parties in the Holmby Hills neighborhood, will start a quarterly party in Manhattan during Fashion Week on Sept. 10.
Snctm club owner Damon Lawner is now scouting for locations in New York, and tells us he is looking for a private townhouse or a loft for his members, who he says include A-list actors, models, top lawyers and CEOs of public companies.
Lawner also plans to throw a party in a discreet mansion in the Hamptons on Sept. 16.

“I have never been to a swingers party or a sex party. What interests me is the conversation about sexuality and the artistry of erotica. It’s all consensual.”
Lawner, who refuses to name any of his clients, said memberships start at $10,000 and go up to $50,000 for
“There are true A-list actors and businesspeople who attend, some who have a hard time leaving the house without being chased by the paparazzi. They prefer to remove their masks in the Dominus chambers. It is a safer place for them.”
Lawner personally screens each member application. He said,
“The last party, we had over 1,000 applicants on our Web site for 100 places. People send photos and describe their fantasies. I don’t want a room full of bankers, actors or models. I curate each party carefully.”
But when asked if a Page Six reporter could ever be permitted inside, he answered,
