S-M horror dungeon discovered in Kentucky

How would you like it if I hit you over the head with a hammer?

No? You wouldn’t like it at all?

That’s because it is our universal and instinctual human nature to prefer pleasure over pain and to seek pleasure but avoid pain, just as it is the universal and instinctual nature of all living things to prefer life over death.

Unlike other creatures, however, human beings can become alienated or perverted from our nature so that pain is preferred over pleasure or, in some cases, deriving a strange sort of pleasure from pain. Sadomasochism is an example of that perversion: the giving and/or receiving of pleasure—often sexual—from acts involving the infliction or reception of pain or humiliation.

The so-called sexual revolution in America began in the 1960s and never stopped. With sexual “liberation” came libertinism — the falling away or absence of all moral restraints, which are seen as unnecessary, undesirable, and downright stodgy. But with libertinism also came boredom: ordinary standard sexual practices become less and less titillating. That’s called being jaded. And so, the never-satiated ravenous appetite searches for ever more exciting and more dangerous thrills.

It is in that context that the wild popularity — especially among middle-class women — of the 2011 book Fifty Shades of Grey is significant. The book is an explicit “erotic novel” by E. L. James about a relationship between a female college graduate and a male business magnate, characterized by sadomasochism, bondage/discipline, and dominance/submission.

I wonder if the middle-class matrons entranced with the novel know about the S-M horror dungeon that was recently unearthed in Louisville, Kentucky?

About four months ago, workers preparing Louisville’s historic Whiskey Row buildings for interior demolition discovered the remnants of an underground sado-masochistic swingers club from the 1970s which had been abandoned since the 1990s.

As reported by Joe Arnold of WHAS11, two floors below Main Street, a large black and white logo displays the word “LATEX,” presumably the name of the club.


Workers found sheets of plastic that they presume separated the sub-basement into different rooms. Also found in the underground dungeon were candles, a disintegrated couch, a mysterious piece of cloth draped over a table and chair, another chair covered in cobwebs, oil paintings on the walls, and a horrific torture bed.

Here are some still photos of the horror dungeon taken from the raw video shot by photojournalist Michael Driver for WHAS11:

The Daily Mail reports that an unidentified former Club Latex member, who was one of the 1,000 dues-paying patrons, claimed that “A group of about eight of us decided to form an organization to promote and teach people about safe ways to practice sadomasochism. ‘There were a few professional dominatrixes, a few that were in committed B-D-S-M relationships, some gay, some straight.” (BDSM = bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism)

One of the club’s founders, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that at one point they had over a dozen bondage and torture devices, but safety was always a priority. He said, “We employed safety personnel and guards to insure nothing dangerous, non-consensual, or untoward ever took place, and to my knowledge never did.”

Yeah right. This sure looks “safe” to me:

  1. Pure evil once again. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for exposing this horrible evil so that it is not glorified by these matrons who make me ill. There is no such thing as a “safe” torture bed! That is like being half pregnant. Since torture was part of the activities of the organization, safety is a misnomer. It never ceases to amaze me how human beings can create evil and participate in evil with no qualms. Clearly, it is Satanic and very frightening.


  2. I’m glad I’m allergic to LATEX


  3. Evil has been at work in this country for a long time. This is a horror.


    • I think if these attenders were in a state of Nature, they’d last about 5 minutes before the pack turned on them, or were picked off by predators seeking to take down the weakest. But that’s just my opinion. I’ve never met a self-confessed one of these people who was at all content, never mind happy, with their life. They ALWAYS have at least one major psycho-spirtual problem that distorts their life.


  4. Darn! I was hoping they would have found Feinstein down there, along with other gun-grabbers!


    • I have it from a good reliable source that Alan Greenspan is inclined to this creepy stuff. I know a woman in El Cerrito, CA who is both physically beautiful and a talented graphic artist. To supplement her income she is also a dominatrix; she tells me that by far the largest user of her ‘services’ are bankers and lawyers. Maybe they seek punishment for what they knowingly do to others, while making them pay for it….


  5. Yikes!!Now this is really scary!More so then any horror movie ever made cause its real!!


  6. This Latex dungeon is disgusting and horrible and Satanic, but I disagree that Fifty Shades of Grey has anything to do with it. This dungeon is about sadism: the destructive concept of deriving pleasure from another person’s suffering, where the Fifty Shades of Grey is more about pain for the purpose of punishment/correction.


  7. At it looks like they had a pillow on that saw (?) table. Maybe those perverts insisted on being comfortable while they were being tortured


  8. i think the problem is the concept of ‘moral restraints’- as though i should need to restrain myself at all from aberrations and unhealth. how about just natural inclination? if it wasnt for some mind and soul twisting as a child i would never have dreamed these things. in fact, being a product of modern times, i dont know who i really am or would be in a more godly world.

    do any of us really know who we are? i see only a distant vision, through the darken glass, of redemption. meanwhile it’s hard to know what’s good and bad, since our true natures are so corrupt. not that i need a lot of info to shrink from the horror of all this! but horror has it’s fascination, and that’s the problem.

    so maybe we do need moral restraints after all! if i cant figure it out myself at least i can rely on God’s Word.


  9. lmao you people need to get out more


    • By “getting out more,” you mean engaging in sado-masochism. No thanks. Nor am I fooled by your trying to paint us as unsophisticated oafs, as if being “sophisticated” means doing SM. How shallow of you.

      IMHO, you need to acquire some sense of decency and of morals.


  10. This place was fun. There was no evil.
