San Francisco’s biggest gay sex club is under threat of closing down

san francisco gay sex club blow buddies shut down

Blow Buddies, the largest gay sex club in San Francisco, is in danger of shutting down as the owners of the building look to sell.

The 6000-square-foot club has operated for three decades at 933 Harrison Street, South of Market. However, the building is now on the market for $3.25 million (2,861,495EUR), according to Socketsite. They originally purchased it for $500,000 (440,230EUR).

The gay sex club is a private members’ club for men over the age of 21, charging patrons membership subsidies alongside an entree fee of $17 (14.97EUR). It’s open till 6am most days.

Blow Buddies boasts glory holes, play rooms, mirrors, dark rooms and a heated backyard area. There’s themed nights ranging from watersports to naked nights, and the dress code is fetish, jockstraps and underwear.

While the operators of the club would like to stay at the premise, a new owner who doesn’t want a sex club running on the property could easily shut it down. Especially as marketing materials for the Central SoMa site gloats of its easy freeway access in an area of ‘expanding Tech and Entertainment’.

However, it might not be the end-of-the-line for these iconic purveyors of promiscuity. The building is zoned for development up to 30 feet in height. It’s located in a ‘Service/Arts/Light Industrial (SALI) District), which is meant ‘to protect the expansion of existing general commercial, manufacturing, home and business service, and light industrial activities, with an emphasis on preserving and expanding arts activities’.

Condos, office blocks, or hotels can’t be built on this site. They can build affordable housing projects.
