Among other things, this is the 3rd installment of the How to Host series...

...but first, the lunchtime party. 

Ever since I started hosting orgies, I’ve consistently heard from guys who’ve wanted me to host parties in the afternoon, presumably because they need to get home after work.  I couldn’t do it at Perry Street because it would’ve been too obvious and weird to the other tenants, especially the one I used to call “Mr. Roper.”  That’s not an issue at this location, and I really want to fully explore this very cool outdoor space, so I’m finally doing it.  The first cock4lunch orgy will be held on Friday, June 24th, from 12PM to 4PM.  It isn’t specifically BB or SS, but a mix; condoms, as always, will be readily available.  The men will be a mix of blue collar and white collar.

When I first saw the Perry Street apartment, I wasn’t thinking about having parties there.  But by the next day, I was.  It was (barely) big enough, easily accessible from the building entrance, and in a very good location.

These remain three key components for determining whether a space is viable for regularly hosting sex parties of more than a dozen people, and critical in my determination of where I’d relocate.  It also limited my choices, but I fortunately had a full month to search.  It took me about two weeks to locate the space and finalize the deal.

Whether you’re looking for a new place or thinking about hosting parties at your current location, here are some fundamental questions you’ll need to ask if you want to host more than twice a month (fewer parties likely wouldn’t turn the attention of your neighbors like weekly ones would).

Is it big enough?

The space must accommodate the number of guys you want to bring in.  You don’t need to figure the number of seats – that can be misleading – but the number of bodies.  A room that can fit six chairs and a bed can likely accommodate more than eight guys; you could probably even double it.  However, if they have to compete with a lot of home stuff, like an entertainment center, dresser, etc., the number will be limited.  You may have to move stuff around, at the very least, but you may also have to get rid of stuff to increase space.  A bevy of normal household things could also detract from the sexual fantasy component of your parties. 

What about the layout?

At Perry Street, I had one playroom and a small social room in the back.  I did the best with what I had, but I always wanted another room for size and cruising options (which I now have).

Another crucial layout aspect is the check-in, changing, and clothes storage area(s).  I almost didn’t take this current space, but I realized I could store clothes upward, with shelves, and I got creative with my check-in computer station.  You’d probably use your kitchen and/or hallway, but whatever area you use, it should all be near the entrance.  You don’t want to be stepping over piles of men to retrieve someone’s clothes.

I actually came to this apartment three times, before taking it, to determine how to do this.  I’m so glad I did.

The clothes bags, especially in the winter, take up a significant amount of space.  And you can’t just throw them all in a pile; that will drive you crazy.  Come up with a system, but have the space for it.  Be practical.

How will my neighbors react?

That’s a tricky one.  I had three things going for me at Perry Street: the apartment was right by the front door, for an easy in-and-out and neighbors didn’t have strangers trapsing past their doors or creaking on the stairs; it had no apartments to worry about to the north, south, east, or west; and it was The West Village, where folks may be snobby, but still pretty cool about sex. I personally would only use a first floor space.  This new one is first floor, in the back with a secluded patio, and only one other apartment is on this floor.  On my search, I checked out one apartment that was also a garden apartment, but guys would’ve had to walk past several neighbors to get there.  If you’ve got crotchety neighbors, you may be pushing your luck.  I’ve got pot-smoking college kids on either side of me.  It’s tough to determine who the neighbors are, if you’re not already living there.  I asked, but my agent didn’t know anything about them.  I could only rely on the fact that I was searching in the East Village, which is very liberal and near universities.

You might not have this kind of luck on, say, East 71st Street.  Pick your neighborhood wisely.

Also to determine is whether or not your neighbors in other buildings will notice guys coming and going.  On Perry, we had a busy AA across the street and restaurants to help absorb the traffic of my guys; the area here is also busy, one block south of St. Mark’s.

And is there a live-in superintendent?  They can get nosy.

Will guys want to come to my location?

That’s really a question of accessibility.  When I was looking, I saw less expensive places that seemed to meet all the criteria, except that they weren’t close enough to subways.  Is your space near at least one major subway stop?  How far would guys have to walk?  Or drive?  Is there parking?  It’s also good to be in a place near bars and restaurants, where guys can kill time until your party starts.  Especially after they leave work. 

There aren’t many “dangerous” neighborhoods, anymore, but I suppose that could factor into your decision.


There are considerations about whether you’d want to host sex parties, but also whether you’re able to host them.  Be sure about all of them before you move forward with such a venture.

The PEÄK orgies have been well-attended, so we’re adding more to the schedule.  Every Tuesday party in June will be PEÄK
