Man found hanged in Boat Quay gay sex club

Man found hanged in Boat Quay gay sex club
Club One Seven.

SINGAPORE - From the outside, the club at 17 Upper Circular Road, near Boat Quay, would not attract many second glances.

With its sedate colour palette of grey and brown, embellished only by its name, Club One Seven, on the door, it might be considered a classy establishment.

But what apparently goes on inside is an entirely different matter.

In the words of police investigation officer Siaw Kah Swee, "Club One Seven is a two-storey sleazy gay pub meant only for registered patrons".

Station Inspector Siaw said the lower level had a spa and a cafe while the upper level had common shower facilities and a myriad of small rooms.

Many of the rooms have all-around mirrors, a single mattress, a toilet paper dispenser and a holder for lubricant and condoms. Several had "themed" furnishings, with erotic apparel for "Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism" (BDSM) practices, he said.

And it was in one of them, room No 5, that a 49-year-old man was found dead, hanging from a metal chain, on Nov 19 last year. He was naked.

Mr Siaw's findings on the club was part of his investigation report for the Coroner's Inquiry on Tuesday on Mr Yeo Hung Song's death.
