Swingers club: petition circulating to shut it down

Full story: WTSP Tampa Bay

' Thursday night at Club Elite things were quiet outside. Dark covered windows hide what's going on inside the private members facility that many say is a sex club.

LOL!! What a loser. People are probably "swinging" right next to him and he has no clue. As far as I'm concerned, life is so much better when people mind their own business especially when it pertains to CONSENTING adults in AMERICA.

It will be moved or closed down, it's only a matter of time. Once Christians take a stand, the devil has no chance of surviving.

For the sins of their inhabitants Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim were destroyed by "brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven" (Genesis 19:24-25). Since then, their names are synonymous with impenitent sin, and their fall with a proverbial manifestation of God's wrath (Jude 1:7).

I'll continue to pray for your souls and hope that one day you will come to know God and his greatness.

Read the Bible.

I believe that yes this place should not be in a commercial district. But I can also say that a lot of people have the concept of swinging wrong. Think about it for a second. Men and women all over the world have affairs because their needs are not being met at home. Swingers are honest about their fantasies with their partners and witht themselves. But for Club Elite to say that no sexual activity goes on there is wrong and insulting. I swing, and have been to swingers clubs. Yes consenting sex goes on in any on premises club in the areas that are designated for it.

America is founded on freedom of choice, don't go to the club if it offends you. However, you should respect the rights of those that do go to the club. I'm against anyone trying to take the civil liberty of free choice from anyone as long as the act is lawfull. No one in LEO, or the State Attorney's Office has stated they have violated any law. P.S. check on how many time LEO have had to respond to the club since its opening. OH! how mant timwe have LEO had to respond to your house or neigbors.

Is the most pathetic excuse for a news Channel..
You call this News? Intervening a Half Naked, Whore looking Bigot? Now she's telling us she would Rather have the Drug infested, Bums hanging around that enjoyed Critters?
So Ignorant... If you're going to interview someone ..Try finding some one that at least
looks like they have a clue..Wait! No one with any sense wants anything to do with this story.
Channel 10 you have underestimated your Viewers
intelligences, as they have over estimated yours..
Disgusted and changing channels

Parents need not worry about child molesters hanging out at the club. Catholic priests and church camp counselors aren't allowed there.

I have followed the posts here closely and would like to inject a fundamental basis of being an American.. We are given the opportunity to "Pursue Life, Liberty and Happiness".

Accordingly, there are Many Private Clubs where people with common interests band together for their mutual benefit and comaradity. There are Boat Clubs, Country Clubs, Motorcycle Clubs, Fraternal Groups like the Moose, Elks, Eagles, Masons, and the number of "Private, Members Only" clubs is almost endless.

I don't completely understand the outrage some people seem to harbor at the idea of a Swingers Club where Like Minded Members enjoy Sensuality, Sexuality, and are Up-Front and Open about there common interest. I don't get concerned when some people attend their Bible Clubs, Kniting Circles or pursue their own interest at any of the 100's of clubs. I suppose I am more "open-minded" than some people, and I like the "Live and Let Live" aspects of American.

I am a member of Club Elite. I am also a member of Fraternal organizations, I have a Boat, I love Golf, and There is nothing more invigorating than a Helmet-less Ride thru the countryside on a Big Bike. Swinging?? Yes the opportunity for Recreational Sex brings a big grin to my face. I can't express how Great it is to be able for me to Pursue My Chosen "Life, Liberty, and Happiness"!! I am having So Much Fun!! I guess some People are just envious!!

Oh Boy, the bigots on the Religious Right in Pasco county finally have something to keep them occupied. Since the RR is being laughed out of the political world for the hollow shell it really is, they feel more threatened than ever. Since state and national politicians now seem to be ignoring them, what better way to stir up the rubes than to wave the flag of sexual activity in their faces. Oh dear, people having sex, and horror of horrors, having fun at the same time!

Thank God you have so little real news to report on that you can continue to fill in air time with the same story four days in a row! After reading the four stories posted on this issue, it is very clear that Ms. Fields has managed to get four by lines out of one story. Good for her!
As to the issue at hand, if the sheriff's department can find evidence that the club is in the wrong zone and a judge requires the club to move, and they refuse to move, then you will have a story worthy of air time. Until then what right do the neighbors have to tell people how to pay their bills, after all this is a legal enterprise, per your reports.
Presently the only thing the continued reports are going to do is lead to more harm. Harm the cub did not bring into neighborhood. If you continue advertise this club as a sex club, than it is you and the 'good people' of the community that will be attracting the less desirable into the neighborhood.
Please look beyond the knee jerk reaction of a few uninformed individual and consider the larger consequence of these stories. No one wants pimps, hookers, drug dealers, or gun play in their neighborhood. By your own story the membership of this club are affluent, educated members of society, what makes you think they would want the less 'desirables' in their private club.
As for those who claim they went to the club unaware of the full nature of the club. If they were required to pay a membership fee and not allowed a refund when they realized the misunderstand, then by all means pass this story on to your consumer reporter and get them their money back.
Although I'd prefer to hear about swingers clubs every day of the week over murder, rape, child abuse, etc., don't you think it's time to move on?

OH NO! Someone is having sex in MY NEIGHBORHOOD? My kids and I should not have to live next to someone that is having SEX. What if my kids see something. They SHOULD NOT be exposed to naked people, the idea of sex or have any information about the difference between the sexs until they are 21.

No sexy clothing, no naughty maid halloween costumes, no scantily clad pop star on TV or in concert.

Wait, my neighbor has kids! That means they have SEX! Quick! Sign this petition, they should not be having sex behind doors in my residential neighborhood.

I did not hear the owner of the club say sex does not occure, he only stated that nothing happens in full view of everyone. He did say that what happens behind closed doors his between the consenting adults.

Why not sign a petition to move the motels and hotels away theres sex in side them behind closed doors and children live nearby.

I can use all the prayers I can get, so tyvm. However, I've read the Bible, lots of sex, and killing in the name of your God. So you can have that. See my reply to your very first post. And btw, What, keep asking for stuff to be closed down. And keep praying it happens. The more successful you are in getting stuff that offends you moved, the easier you're going to make it for the Atheists who are offended by your church to get that shut down as well. Remember what, no one forces your repressed little self through the door, so get in your prayer closet with you plastic light up Jesus and ask him to save you, I don't need any salvation.

It's so nice to see someone hit the nail on the head. I hope you are reading this Channel 10. I am so disappointed in your research of this story. I am switching channels...
