    What's Supersex(e)?

    A well known strip club, for some reason americans are totally fascinated by our city's seedier side, which is pretty tame when compared with some east-european or asian locations...

    yea but if you really have to satisfy some perverted urges, rather go to Chez Paree or something...

    Geneva is a trip, a civilised Thailand, so to speak.

    Maybe we should get back on topic, I highly doubt Fabienne is looking for the best European towns to indukge in kinky fetishes....

    No person who has lived here more than 5 minutes understands where this stereotype comes from. It is know as being the worst place to go in this city... for strippers, for anything. They love to treat people horribly, if you're American the bouncers are literally just waiting for you to say something wrong and they'll throw you down the stairs. If you really want to go to a strip club, there are like 10 places far better than super sex.

    I'm guessing it's just hte named of the club?


    Well, last time I was there was in like 1994, and I think it burned down or something since then. When I was there, it was pretty good I thought.

    So...what are the 10 places? [​IMG]

    Vienna has always had a reputation as well. And Zurich.

    Things were more interesting in Zurich when this place was still a strip club:

    I was a bit younger then, too...

    I foregot to tell the story of the russian businessmen who spent 25 000 Francs on a new year's eve there. Things are coming back to me now.... Today it is just a restaurant and cafe. They boast their tea collection.[​IMG]

    It's terribly bourgeois, isn't it?

    But then strip clubs have a Lynchian/Belle de Jour bourgeois aspect too.

    I finally found a picture of the outside of the Cafe Terasse (former Strip Club Terasse).
    It can hardly get more bourgeois, because the club was located inside the former Grand Hotel Bellevue, that closed down in the beginning of the last century:

    This reminds me of the El Dorado nightclub in Weimar Berlin, which was the locale where Otto Dix did his first major work:

    It was also the setting for the portrait of Count St.Genois de Anneaucourt, an Austro-Hungarian aristocrat displaced after the war.

    Across from Terasse we have the Cafe Odeon, where Thomas Mann, Richard Wagner, Lenin, Einstein, James Joyce and the Dadaists liked to spend their time, among others. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And we can't forget the Cabaret Voltaire:
