“Calgary Judge Rules Group Sex Parties Can Continue, But Without Club Branding”

Introduction:
In a city known for its conservative values, a controversial ruling regarding group sex parties has sparked both outrage and support. Matthew Mills, the organizer of “ethical non-monogamy” sex parties in his Calgary home under the name Club Ménage, has faced legal battles over the use of club branding for his events. The recent decision by a judge has shed light on the legality of hosting such gatherings in residential neighborhoods.

The Battle Over Club Ménage:

Under Fire from Neighbors and City Officials:
Since 2010, Mills has been hosting bi-weekly soirées that attracted a sizable crowd of 20 to 50 people, all seeking the freedom to explore “ethical non-monogamy” in a safe and consensual environment. However, complaints from neighbors led to a “stop order” from the city’s planning and development department in 2019, citing a violation of the municipal Land Use Bylaw.

The Controversial Ruling:

Challenging the Constitutionality:
Mills’s argument that the bylaw infringed on his rights to freedom of conscience, peaceful assembly, and association was ultimately dismissed by the Court of King’s Bench Justice Nick Devlin. The judge maintained that while Mills was free to engage in his chosen lifestyle, using a residential home as a clubhouse for Club Ménage crossed a legal boundary.

Conclusion:
Despite the ruling, Mills expressed his satisfaction with being able to continue hosting parties at his home, albeit without the club branding. The case serves as a reminder of the complex interplay between personal freedoms and community standards, raising questions about where the line should be drawn when it comes to private expressions of sexuality. As society continues to evolve, it remains to be seen how the law will adapt to accommodate diverse lifestyles and beliefs while upholding the values of the community as a whole.
