Heard Club 1502 is closed due to electrical problems? Too many vibrators plugged in at the same time. The cock roaches have scampered back to twin Theatre. Big strip show and lap dances this Friday after 7 pm in theaters. BYOB. Bring the $$.

Guess its back to the drawing board for the prowlers. The school down the street is a good spot. Theres also a park nearby, good job concerned locals. Hey, how come these places up on the north side (where theres money because the people in those neighborhoods work)never get this kind of attention. ACI, executive, players, twin theater, mega plex, try outs etc.. I say shut them all down. The hell with the jobs or positive revenue they produce.

Alright, you've proven your stupidity again. This has nothing to do with zoning restrictions. It's about the Texas Penal Code that supercedes zoning restrictions which are set by City Council, not the City Attorney.
who do you think the city attorney works for - you can open a s.o.b. as long as you are in an appropriately zoned location
do your homework

1502 Club does not fall under the category of a S.O.B. That's why they are now closed. Do your homework.

You people don't get it.

You scream about government interference in your lives, but bitch about a few men getting their jollies off behind closed doors.

A real Conservative would just say to leave them alone, unless they're harming someone. The owner of the property should be the ultimate judge of what goes on there. If he's ok with a strip club with full nudity, with a swinger's club like players, or even a gay establishment like ACI -- that should be the RIGHT of the property owner to sanction it.

And if it's a "Private" club, they determine their membership.

How is 1502 different than half of the motel rooms at Red Roof, Mi Casa Hotel, and various other no-tells, some of these rooms are hosting mini parties of 4, 6, or even 8 people at a time. Are you going to then demand the hotels screen the usage of their rooms?

I envision your new rules

1. No people can rent unless the opposite sex and married to each other.(I rented a hotel room in Calif in 1982, the clerk refused, he assumed my Sales Manager (boss) and I were gay...in our company I worked for at that time as a college student the Sales teams shared rooms, and NO, we weren't gay, and yes we rented elsewhere.)
2. No guests at any time
3. No sex in the room, the beds are ONLY for sleeping.
4. Single people renting have to be in by curfew, you morality crusaders would say 11.
5. No alcohol consumption.

Just because you drive by twice a day and have revulsive thoughts because of what other people are doing -- shame on you. Maybe the problem is YOU. You are the reason why the country is so screwed up and a bunch of Mooching Socialists.

Liberty is the ability to do what you want with your property at any time.

So, what you're saying is that people should be able to perform illegal acts in public without recourse? Even though it violates the state's statute on public lewdness and indecent exposure. Murder is against the law too. Should we just let everyone kill each other? People that share your philosophy are the problem. That's why laws exist. Learn what they are.

You're right. 1502 Club was operating under a SOB permit which is not suitable for the type of business and sexual activity going on inside. This is according to law enforcement on the record. Not to mention the lawsuit that was filed against Club 1502/Venus Video by a nearby neighborhood association. And, illegal electrical work performed by the owner of 1502 Club, which resulted in a fire in the ceiling area. The fire occurred about the same time WOAI exposed them on the news. LOL. ACI and Executive are next. Guess i'll just have to cruise the men's restrooms at the local malls for under stall action.

The Texas Public Lewdness Statute expressly covers "Public Lewdness" meaning in plain site, where the public can see you in the act. Indoors, such as massage parlors, gym steam rooms/saunas(yes it happens), bars and clubs to include parking lots. These places are not intended for sex, but sex is needed, wanted, and ignored by most business mgmt/owners. I would rather it be contained to places like these, than on the streets, alleys, and neighborhoods where children play, people walk dogs and elderly people sit on porches. Not ignoring these places, monitoring for excessive acts, spillage outside the boundaries, drug sales, etc...

The acts in question are not in public, cannot be seen by the public, and the public is not forced to view the acts via windows and outdoor areas, they are behind closed doors. So they are not considered under the statute, however like most businesses in most districts, loopholes, contributions to campaigns, black mail, prioritizing, etc... Either your complaints are valid or invalid, either you've been there and experienced it or you are spreading rumors. Are you credible to the community or spreading hate and discontent?

To the contrary my friend. Adult Video stores are Sexually Oriented Businesses (SOB's), public places, not private. Even if they were private, they still need to abide by the State's Statutes and local ordinances established by City Council. Hence, the same applies to Strip/Topless Clubs. Violate the law, you get arrested. The sexual activity that was taking place in the viewing rooms and theater were in violation of the state's statute on public lewdness and indecent exposure. Research the State's Penal Code. You'd be surprised what you learn when you "research", rather than accuse others of spreading rumors. Also, Venus Video was raided numerous times when they were located on Culebra Road. This is before they moved to Callaghan location. They already had a reputation known to law enforcement. Venus Video just pushed their luck too far.

By the way, Twin Theater met the same fate. The owner's son advertised prostitution on Craigslist. Unfortunately, he was too damn stupid to figure out that law enforcement reads this stuff. Consequently, the store was raided over half a dozen times within 3-4 months, with over 12 men arrested on various occasions. Every raid was broadcast on the local news to make an example out of these guys. One of which was a Bexar County Constable, a Professor of Nursing for UTHSC, etc. How embarrassing. You want to make the news? Have sex in public places. Inside a public business (building) is still considered "public space".

Don't be fooled by the existing Adult Video stores in business now. Some have viewing rooms, theaters, which are closely monitored by the store clerk. They run the risk of having their SOB permit revoked if they allow patrons to violate the law. You never know when undercover will be at these places. Have fun! LOL!!!

All this information is public that I found and researched to be truthful. The proof is in the Penal Code.

The Texas Penal Code makes no reference at all to "plain site". It is clear that a public space is considered anywhere. Whether it be in sight or not. Stop spreading rumors!

I couldn't agree with you more on the subject of sex. But, we have laws. Have sex at home. That's as safe as you can get. Otherwise, contact your Legislator and inform them that you disagree with the State's Penal Code. You might get a laughable response.

Spot on! Excellent. Unfortunate, but truthful. I guess this fool thinks that you can go to Foley's for instance, which is a public place, and engage in sexual activity. Even though they still do it in the restrooms. Does that give customers the right to engage in sexual activity even though the public outside of the store can't see them? That's ludicrous!

Yes, the owner of the now closed Twin Theater decided it was a good idea to allow his son Raymond to manage Twin Theater. He ruined a perfectly run business that was re-established by the previous store manager. Twin Theater was rocking when the former manager operated the store the way a business should be operated. The place was always clean for once, packed. He opened the 2nd theater which was used as storage, implemented "Gay Theater Day", Couples nights ($10 a couple) every Friday and Saturday. They were a hit. Lots of rules, but he got rid of the rift raft, loiterers, prostitutes, drunks, etc. Also implemented a 4 hour time limit (for the jotas that previously camped out all day/night), no in and out privileges. This was all done to remain in compliance with the County, and, to avoid their SOB permit from being revoked. He knew his shit. Bottom line, there was no need for Raymond to advertise prostitution on Craigslist. Bad decision. That's why the previous manager quit. Good for him. A wise decision. Unfortunately, Raymond's poor business decisions were the cause of Twin Theater's demise. RIP.

Is this place a good place for a married couple (married cuckold couple)?
