Police raided a gay sauna in Ratchadaphisek area after a tip-off that an activity of debauchery would be held on Sunday night, involving 100 Thais and foreigners.

Details are fuzzy, but sources suggest a group sex activity may have been planned. However, police opted not to arrest any of the 100 revellers they found there as no used condoms were found, said Huai Khwang police chief Kampol Rattanaprateep.

He said the revellers at the R3 Sauna were found along with three piles of unused condoms. Urinalysis was conducted on 40 people at the scene, with substances detected in two of them. They were taken to hospital for further examination which found the substances were from medication.

Sources say the entry fee was 450 baht, tripled if the reveller was over 50. Col Pol Kampol said some people at the scene escaped through the back door. He said the police do not know how many fled but insisted no police were involved in escorting them out. He said the owner of the sauna was charged with operating entertainment venue without a licence and selling alcohol without a permit.

In Febuary, another raid by the police found a sex workshop being run at a hotel meeting room in Pattaya. The 10 participants were charged with working without a permit and staying in the country illegally.

Among the arrested were a Belarusian escort Anastasia Vashukevich and the workshop's coach Alexander Kirillov. They were later charged with solicitating prostitution and conspiracy.

The arrest put Ms Anastasia, aka Nastya Rybka, in limelight after she claimed she was the "missing link" in the probe into Russian meddling in the US election.
