Inside The Hollywood Club That Holds ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Parties

Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut is memorable for many reasons. It was Kubrick’s final film, holds the Guinness World Record for longest continuous film shoot at 400 days, and, oh yeah, prominently featured bonkers illuminati sex parties. If you ask anyone about Eyes Wide Shut, this will be the first thing they remember.

Your initial reaction to these scenes will probably include some form of incredulity. You won’t believe they’re real. But what if they are?

That’s where Snctm comes in. For just the small price of $75,000, you can join this exclusive erotic club. That will grant you a lifetime membership which will allow you to participate in the fun, give you sex advice from experts, and allow you to join a “blood oath,” though only 11 members have reached that level yet.

Curious men can pay $1,850 to attend one party, or $1,500 if they bring a date. (Women, following a screening, can get in free.) All applications must go through a vetting process, and members include everyone from media elite, to Hollywood members, and corporate businessmen and businesswomen.

Via Snctm’s website:

The Club exists to serve the social and entertainment needs of our members and guests by maintaining the highest standards of excellence in all endeavors, by providing creative and culturally rich programs, and by providing a safe and comfortable environment for personal exploration.

As the LA Times described it back in 2013, “True S&M-dungeon devotees might find it a tad PG-13, but Sanctum makes a frank pronouncement about why we go out at night: If the point of clubs is the pursuit of Eros, why wait for it?”

Snctm was founded by Damon Lawner, a divorced ex-real estate agent. Esquire’s Mike Sager wrote a deep, fascinating profile of Lawner and Snctm, revealing that his inspiration did evolve from watching Eyes Wide Shut amidst a mid-life crisis. Snctm attendees must wear masks upon arrival, like they do in the film, and acquiring admittance sounds just as much as the adventure Tom Cruise experienced.

Footage from the party isn’t made available—attendees give up their phones upon entrance. Though apparently Lawner is in talks to develop a show based on his life. Men’s Health also reports that Showtime is in talks to produce an 8-part documentary series. Until then, you’ll just have to watch Eyes Wide Shut with your eyes wide open.
