A sting operation was launched after police were informed that a swingers’ party was held every Saturday night at Rama Kien Resort in Bang Lamung district.
Initially a male and female Police Officer went in undercover and registered themselves to attend to event which they described as involving at least 10 couples. When the party had started other officers entered the resort and found couples in various states of undress. Items including condoms and sex toys were seized and taken into evidence.
Officers raided the resort and found more than 20 Thais and foreigners, male and female, almost naked. Some were wearing only a towel.
Police said they tried to escape during the raid, but all were detained and questioned before been released. Officers found 25 used condoms and sex toys as well as a copy of an invitation to the swingers’ party.
Anthony Verloop, a 61-year-old Dutchman, and a Thai woman, Kannikar Karnkhai, 42, admitted to jointly operating the resort and a website informing potential customers that they were running a nude resort. They invited people who like swinging to join a party. Each had to pay 23,000 baht membership to enjoy sex anywhere in the resort or have swinging partners.
After the investigation, the pair were charged with providing an indecent or immoral service.
