World-record orgy attempt falls short in Las Vegas

For all the fanfare leading up to the June 2 attempt to break the record for the world’s biggest orgy, the main event of the Sin City 8 adults-only weekender didn’t quite attract the expected amount of participants.

Despite having more than 1,000 registrants (according to reps from Menage Life, which produces Sin City 8), only 375 of them made it to the Green Door sex club that Saturday to break an unofficial record established in 2006, when 500 participants gathered in Japan.

“We didn’t beat the world record, but we were still able to host an amazing event, considering the circumstances our team had to overcome,” read a press release from Menage Life.

Those circumstances involved two venue changes: one from host hotel Embassy Suites to the Erotic Heritage Museum shortly after Stephen Colbert riffed on the news of the record-busting attempt and subsequently upset hotel operator Hilton, and then again after pressure from local officials forced a move from the museum to the Green Door hours before the event was to take place.

Despite previously implying that the annual weekender might not take place in Las Vegas next year, Menage Life confirmed in last night’s press release that Sin City 9 is indeed planned for May 29-June 2, 2019—where another attempt to beat the record will be made.
