BarFly's Review of Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso
Kenny Rogers Roasters, Mark Lindsay's Rock 'n' Roll cafe, Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso...celeb endorsements, like comedy, comes in threes.
We hear there is a full bar (and thus appropriately listed here on dear old BarFly), which for the uninitiated, might come in handy when you need to steady your nerves on the appropriately named "GangBang Night". Also you will find a DJ'ed dance floor - stalking/creepy behavior is discouraged.
Getting to Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso
I have been to 10 different clubs with my woman over the last 5 years. What people really need to realize esp single guys. It's Not a place to get laid if you can't on your own. It's not a porn shoot with plastic barbies everywhere. It is normal everyday people that come. All different shapes and sizes and colors. I would say thou the people who come there are more attractive then most clubs we have been to. It's a nice club it's clean the staff is nice. The only thing I wish was different is, if they had a open area like the closed off couples room with beds not futon's. Other then that it is the best club around honestly.
This place is GREAT!! New Years Eve was fun and relaxing...the only problem is the staff...very RUDE. When asked at 10pm "What Time does the club close", they answer "4am, but we hope people are gone before then"....well, then get another f'ing job! If the place is open till 4 we are staying till 3:59!!!! Also the staff will not stop pestering you in the couples area if you are a male and your partner is further away from you than 2 inches..they are a PAIN!!!!
As a couple we realy enjoyed the place! Very nice fair pric keeps chep people away, and drinks are priced right since youre well drinks are top shelf quality. Thanks for giving us a place to exsplore, the first night we went and fucked each other realy hard in front of others, it was some of the best sex, and next time we plan on going much further
A great place, with great food and unique experiences. The music is fine, it depends on your taste, as noting other posts, but it works for us. The people have all been great, no issues after multiple visits. Food is top notch, service is excellent, bed activities have been pleasant. All are a 10. Sesso needs to quicken the check in pace, standing in line, when the line snakes outside is not good. Only negative, all other experiences have been great.
The boyfriend and I hit Sesso last Saturday night and had an AMAZING time. The drinks were poured just the way we like them (though we didn't realize until after the fact that the well whiskey is Jack and the well gin is Beefeater! Delicious but a hit to the wallet). The DJ played a really good mix of classics (ACDC to La Bouche) for the older crowd and brand new music for the youngsters (LMFAO, the group not the acronym).
They surprisingly had an awesome array of food that was kept fresh throughout the night. Midnight hits and cocktail waitresses bring around cinnamon chocolate chip cookies that may just sell you on the place.
Definitely save this place for special occasions, but make it back a few times in a row if you do, because they get ya on a membership fee! (Three month min I believe?)
Love this club....LOVE IT! The food, the people, the owner is super nice and the staff very friendly. Very clean, very professional...but my husband and I are contemplating not coming as often as we used to...as a number of people have said, the music and DJs are generally pretty sub par..no matter how great your groove is, it's virtually impossible to dance to Footloose unless you are Kevin Bacon. And one DJ simply adored Michael Jackson..seriously, enough. Get some solid, SEXY dance music. PLEASE. The last several times we went, the dance floors were virtually empty and many people were complaining about the music...play Pandora, play the stuff in the European clubs..SOMETHING..to me, the music is really holding this club back. We'll keep coming, of course, but having contemporary dance music would make our night (and many others') even better!
Went on NYE, masquerade party. Had an awesome time. My second time there. Definately a few lonely single guys hanging round just looking. No one too creepy..didnt get stalked or anything. A coat check room would be awesome so don't have to worry about it disappearing. There aren't enough lockers available on one of the busy nights such as NYE. Dance music could be better...I'm 47..love to dance..but its gotta have a good beat. save the rock n roll for something else.
what I most like about Sesso is that you can just relax and do whatever with no pressure. you can stay dressed or not. fuck ..or not. watch or participate. Its all good! I do think that with the high membership fees the door fees for each party could be a little less.
Went to Sesso with a date and another friend couple on NYE. Had a great time - tons of fun - met some really fun other couples who were down with having a good time. Staff was very nice and helpful. So, all good right? NO! The music was a joke -- it sounded like they had a cheesy generic wedding DJ - it was REALLY bad. Come on Sesso - you're a sex club - get people in the mood for C's sake! Damn - just put a Sirius club music station on if that's all you got - but you've got to change whoever is doing your music - I met a bunch of standing members who said the music has really sucked there. Put on something to grind to! The place is great and the music is killing it!
We have given Club Sesso a chance to impress us for over a year. The good news: the club is clean and smells nice. We have never encountered an unidentifiable wet spot in any of the downstairs or upstairs playrooms. The food is always good and the drinks are priced fairly. The regular staff members, including Jimmy, Holly, and Tom, are super friendly. The bar staff is competent and efficient. There is a dance floor and a stripper pole. There is a beautiful, plush couples only lounge. Videos of sexy women and couples are broadcast downstairs and in the orgy room. These really add to the sexy atmosphere.
Based on our more than 10 visits, here is the bad news: The hefty membership and door fees aren't worth the painful entry process or the rude door staff. On most nights, the music borders on ridiculous ("Jump" by Van Halen isn't sexy. Neither is "Rock Lobster" by the B52s). Perhaps these choices reflect the taste of the crowd, but is the DJ watching the empty dance floor? While the volunteer staff is often helpful, we have had awkward encounters with volunteers who seemed to be more pushy than hospitable. Despite the fact that the management has a posted rule throughout the club of "Don't be creepy," creepy single men are frequently spotted here. This probably can't be avoided as long as single men are allowed in the club.
While Sesso could be worse, it could be so much better! Since it is the only on-premise game in town, we really want to love it. We'd like to see more couples only nights; modern, younger music; a regular paid staff of knowledgable people who are earning more than a free night at the club; a smoother entry process.
have been 6 or 7 times on different nights, usually pretty slow, lots of stalker guys or are they just staring too much(show some class guys) and (at different times several have come up to me and said wanna get busy) no... every time I went the music was dated and the food so so...the staff a little too helpful (or way too many of them standing around) overall mixed feelings about the place, could be more upscale...will go once in awhile to see if anything has changed. Nice to go to a place though were you can wear what you want and dance how you want and do whatever the moment inspires.
Iíve been in the lifestyle for many years and have been fortune enough to visit many lifestyle clubs throughout the world. Sesso is right up there in the top 5. The staff is great and most everyone that Iíve met has been friendly.
As a single male, in my 50ís, I have not had any problems meeting couples or single ladies. It really is your attitude. If you attend as a single male and think you are going to get laid because you paid an admission fee, forget it. If you attend because you enjoy the lifestyle and people that enjoy the lifestyle you are going to have a great time.
Dress to impress, be polite and donít be creepy.
I was there about six months ago and drove all the way from Olympia WA... place is really nice inside but where were are all the gangbang girls? Maybe I hit a bad night or something but you would think on a "Gangbang" night there would be more girls attending for guys to enjoy. Heck this place is perfectly safe for single girls who enjoy naughty adventures and getting lots of attention so why was it lacking them?. Maybe someone in management needs to step things up a bit and focus on getting more girls to attend. Easier said than done I'm sure but seemed to be the only thing lacking. Otherwise very trendy "night club" type place. Great bar, great thumping sound system, and very clean inside etc... I will give it another chance again just to see if things have picked up.
Owners Response - Thanks for the overall good review. I'm sorry you feel like the invisible man. I'm going to assume that you attended as a single-male. As swinging is primarily a couples activity, single-men do admittedly have a higher-bar to cross.
There are many couples who are looking for the right single-male, however the problem usually is that the single-men don't step up and play the game like winners. (I'm speaking in general terms, not to your specific situation).
Too many single-men attempt to use Club Sesso as a place for them to get laid when they can't get laid anywhere else. That simply does not work. The reality is if you can't get laid somewhere else you are probably not going to get laid at Club Sesso. I frequently tell men, if you can not go to a club or bar and walk out with a girls phone number then Club Sesso is not the club for you. For the single-men that understand it, they step their game up; they dress nicely, they invest into showing up with the right clothes, the right grooming, the right attitude and the right social skills.
My final thought - we have a list of rules at Club Sesso, on that list is rule #8; Don't Be Creepy. Every woman who visits Club Sesso for the first time smiles when she sees rule #8 and many comment they wish other clubs had a Don't Be Creepy rule. Trust me guys, don't waste your time and money if you don't understand how to not be creepy as we will 86 you from the club if you can't figure it out.

Owner Response - Thanks for the positive comments on your overall experience at Club Sesso. I am sorry you feel our drinks cost a small fortune. Our bar pours only premium spirits, no HRD in this bar. As an example our well vodka is Absolut and our well whiskey is Jack Daniels. For the record a well drink runs $6.25, which is a pretty fair price in downtown Portland in an upscale venue for an Absolut and cran...IMHO.
The club itself is very nice. Very upscale and laid out nicely. Somewhat attractive people, enough that everyone can find something they like. The regulars seemed a little standoffish. Amazing food and amazing employees. Not the place to be if you drink as they cost a small fortune. I would go again.
Paul Smith runs a great club, with a great bar, great food, billed as a swingers club --the problem is that Sesso has attracted the same snotty, shallow, ageist hipster crowd that populates just about every other downtown clubs and a few of the old school swingers looking for that hot stud or just other couples. The club has an orgy bed that is always empty and a couples only lounge that is always packed.
IF YOU ARE OVER 40 -DON'T GO UNLESS YOU LIKE BEING TREATED LIKE THE INVISIBLE MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you really not get why men would pay more?
It's hard to understand why a quality dude such as yourself would have fucked up 3 (4?) marriages.
Women pay a lot less to get in. While men pay a ton of money! Doesn't seem right. Plus, I kinda think some to these gals look too model like, and I wonder if they aren't really employees?
I am on my 4th wife. And this place is nice to slip off too while she thinks I am running the shop right down the street. Hard place to get caught at by the wife.
Club Sesso now has a full liquor license. First sex club in Oregon where you can have a drink then go upstairs and join a gang bang!
I drove all the way from Seattle to check the place out and felt like I had wasted a bunch of money visiting the place. Maybe things are better now but I havenít been back since and prefer New Horizons in Lynwood WA or Angels in Portland.
I visited the club back in late July 09 and although the place was set up pretty cool it seemed to really lack in attendance. I went into a large play area covered only with curtains where there was at least some action going on but apparently single guys arenít allowed. Was my mistake but other members gave me a real hard time and were rude even after I apologized respectfully for the oversight and backed out of that area.
Sort of embarrassed me and killed the mood. I was surprised they had such a large play area down stairs only for couples on a themed night largely catering to single guys paying so much to get in. Why not open it up to everyone on those nights?
Anyway... like I said though maybe things are better now.
We have waited a long time for a place like this! The atmosphere is hot and the people there even hotter! We hear they are getting there liquor license approved and will be back to serving a full scale of drinks (just beer and wine at this moment) in time for the over the top Halloween Party! They have been named the 'After-Party" location for the Erotic Ball and will be open until 6 AM on Halloween! Tickets for the Halloween Party are just $65.00 per couple... Wahoooo! For more detail please see there website, www.clubsesso.com
Took some clients there on Pink Night,they rode in the Hot Pink Hummer,From Super Stretch Limousine.The clients loved the place,very clean and friendly club.I also got a quick tour of the Club,will recommend it to all my swinging clients.
I went to Club Sesso twice this week with my girlfriend and we got in free! We had alot of fun dancing and drinking, and the accommodations are incredible! The guys weren't creepy at all and there were quite a few attractive people there. There was even a buffet with about I think seven entrees (great food) and the couples lounge my girlfriend and I went to was great! The staff is incredible especially the really cute and sweet guy in the front Brad or Brent (I can't remember). Anyway we had a great time and will definitely return! Thanks Ron J!
Club Sesso does indeed have their liquor license and is a very cool place to get a drink and more. They balance the trendy nightclub scene with an adult atmosphere nicely. There isn't any tacky atmosphere or smell. Everything is new, clean, and smells nice. There's literally something for every preference and lifestyle choice over a calendar month. People are friendly, sexy, and as much fun to play with as they are to look at. I've been there a few times and am going back!
Very upscale decor. Very Helpful and Friendly Staff. Convenient Parking. And an Awesome mix of Sexy and Fun People. Attended the Grand Opening and have been back twice since then, it's a Blast!
I thought the crowd would be better looking! This place is a blast and the staff is way cool...Eye candy could make a world of differnce for this newby!
I attended the Saturday Grand Opening and must say, it was awesome! We will definitely be going there again! :)
I probably won't be getting gangbanged at Club Sesso anytime soon, but Ron Jeremy used to frequent a bar I worked at in CA, and he is a complete sweetheart. No attitude whatsoever, and he would come in with an entourage of gorgeous girls. Like Oh-my-god-why-are-you-in-porn? gorgeous. The male employees much appreciated that. He's also a good tipper. I mean that money wise you pervs. Anyway if you see him in your bar roll out the red carpet. Maybe have him autograph your boob. I did!
They have applied for the liquor license is my understanding but it will not have alcohol at the grand opening :(
