“You have to look at your coun­try and what can be done to bet­ter the coun­try. It could be some­thing to de­vel­op the econ­o­my,” he said

Ram­nanan said the in­dus­try is not as lu­cra­tive as peo­ple thought

Ram­nanan said the adult par­ties in T&T have be­come “wa­tered down” as they are held in bars and oth­er es­tab­lish­ments and are now less ex­clu­sive

“Now you don’t need to go a sex show to get that you can get any bar or any restau­rant,” he said

“It is to­tal­ly wa­tered down that is why I am not in­volved in it any­more I would not put my name to that, it has be­come sleazy,” Ram­nanan said

“I don’t take part in those things now be­cause it has be­come sleazy and I don’t want my name at­tached to that be­fore when it was a con­trolled kind of en­vi­ron­ment where you know your clien­tèle and you know the lev­el of en­ter­tain­ment we used to use a lot of lo­cal en­ter­tain­ers,” he said

Ram­nanan said the in­dus­try cre­at­ed many jobs

“I like to think about Trinidad and To­ba­go first any­thing else af­ter. I like a free econ­o­my but you have to be care­ful about your sex­u­al health,” he said

“From in­cep­tion, our es­tab­lish­ment has tak­en great care to op­er­ate at the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dards legal­ly while up­hold­ing a strict pol­i­cy pri­va­cy, se­cu­ri­ty, and dis­crete­ness at each of our three lo­ca­tions. The com­fort, safe­ty, and en­joy­ment of our mem­bers are para­mount,” a re­lease from Num­ber 5 stat­ed

‘We op­er­ate our clubs from pri­vate­ly owned, dis­crete and ful­ly se­cured lo­ca­tions which are ac­ces­si­ble by mem­bers on­ly,” it stat­ed

Trinidad and To­ba­go has an ob­ses­sion with sex.

When you look at Google search­es around the world for the phrase “porn” from 2004 to present, T&T comes first.

T&T al­so came in that po­si­tion over the 15-year-pe­ri­od around the world for the search­es “free porn” and “porn hub”, ac­cord­ing to the da­ta from Google Trends.

But T&T’s cu­rios­i­ty on these is­sues is not on­ly lim­it­ed to search­es on com­put­er screens.

“Adult par­ties are noth­ing new for Trinidad and To­ba­go, they have been go­ing on for years, decades up­on decades,” sex ther­a­pist Giri­raj “Dr Raj” Ram­nanan has said.

Ram­nanan said since the 1950s there have been adult par­ties tak­ing place in T&T.

“So it is noth­ing new, it is just the way that it is be­ing dis­sem­i­nat­ed, and ad­ver­tised and han­dled now is dif­fer­ent,” he said

“So when I came on the scene in the 90s there were a lot of adult par­ties. We used to host pool par­ties, par­ties at home but it was al­ways a pri­vate af­fair for those who were in the know. It was not ad­ver­tised for the pub­lic,” Ram­nanan said

Ram­nanan said with the mass mi­gra­tion of Venezue­lan women “a lot of peo­ple are now pig­gy­back­ing or just jump­ing on the band­wag­on to host these kind of par­ties and they call it sex par­ties but it is noth­ing new”

Some weeks ago a “Se­cret Sun­day” pool par­ty at a house along La­dy Chan­cel­lor Heights was bust­ed by of­fi­cers of the Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Re­sponse Team (SORT)

All 22 fe­males and 18 men who were found at the par­ty were re­leased with­out charges ex­cept a fa­ther and son

“There has been an in­crease in sex par­ties be­cause every man-jack now could host a par­ty be­cause of the amount of young women look­ing for a job,” Ram­nanan said

“As a mat­ter of fact all these car wash events they are hav­ing are a kind of sex par­ty be­cause it be­comes a pre­lude to a sex par­ty in­side the bar,” he said

“So that is what is hap­pen­ing now so it has been wa­tered down and it not ex­clu­sive any­more, it is for Tom, Dick, and Har­ry­lal and there is no con­trol over what hap­pens now,” Ram­nanan said

Ram­nanan said the in­dus­try needs to be reg­u­lat­ed

“My ad­vice is there is al­ways adult en­ter­tain­ment in any coun­try even con­trolled coun­tries there must be places that are al­lowed to have these things and it must not have the ca­pac­i­ty for mon­ey laun­der­ing it must not be a drug den, it must not be a casi­no try­ing to laun­der their mon­ey it must be some­body who is le­git­i­mate in these kind of things,” he said

Ram­nanan said this could ben­e­fit the T&T econ­o­my and called for out­lets to be vet­ted by the po­lice.

“You have to look at your coun­try and what can be done to bet­ter the coun­try. It could be some­thing to de­vel­op the econ­o­my,” he said

Ram­nanan said the in­dus­try is not as lu­cra­tive as peo­ple thought

“It is not as lu­cra­tive as oth­er busi­ness­es, it’s thou­sands of dol­lars as op­posed the mil­lions that some peo­ple would think,” he said

Ram­nanan said in sex par­ties pro­mot­ers could le­git­i­mate­ly make around $10,000 prof­it

He said the mon­ey made il­le­git­i­mate­ly some­times dou­bles that amount
