U of T students forgot the debate club and hit the sex club


Oasis Aqualounge is not the kind of sex club to leave you running for hand sanitizer after a visit.
With bowls of condoms, lubricant and disinfectant wipes in every room, the multi-storey adult playground on Mutual St. is cleaner than a gym.
It also has more rules: No photography, ask once only, and for University of Toronto students Monday night, the age limit for entry was between 19 and 35.
By evening, the 189-person venue was at capacity, with a long line outside.
“I don’t think that today’s going to turn into any orgy, it is really an introduction to what this place provides and what you can do here if you choose to,” co-owner Jana Matthews, 48, said as university students — some curious, some baffled — explored the faciltiies in swimwear, towels, and regular clothing.
The event — hosted by U of T’s Sexual Education Centre, a non-profit student group, for sexual awareness week — charged a $5 admission for U of T students, a huge dip from the usual $20 for couples on student Mondays. For the most part, students milled through different rooms, grabbed drinks, examined sexual props, and sat in the sauna.
“If people want to have sex, they can, and they can do it in as safe an environment as you can provide for them,” SEC spokesman Dylan Tower said, adding there was zero tolerance of harassment.
Oasis Aqualounge boasts a dance floor on the first floor, with no sex or “heavy petting” allowed. A heated pool remains at a temperature of 39 C year-round, with a hot tub and sauna inside.
The second floor has “the dungeon,” a room for bondage and sadomasochism play, with strict rules regarding safety. Other floors have semi-private rooms and one private room.
One 24-year-old student — wishing to remain anonymous — said the semi-private room with two-way mirrors caught his eye on his first visit Monday. He said he’s likely to return.
“I like the idea of both being a performer in there and actually viewing from the outside,” he said.
