Gay sauna will not show films on Monday as a ‘mark of respect to the Queen’

A gay sauna won’t show any porn films as a mark of respect for the Queen on Monday (September 19), but will screen her state funeral for punters instead.

Pleasuredrome in London will also pause music within the venue, which boasts spas, massage rooms and deluxe pods, throughout the day.

Customers at the men-only venue will also be given free champagne so they can toast His Majesty King Charles III, bosses said.

One social media, who caused the announcement to go viral, user joked: “So you can get b******d in mournful silence, then watch Her Late Majesty The Queen go off to her reward.

“It’s what she would have wanted.”

Pleasuredrome, the only men-only venue in the UK open 24/7 offers customers state of the art facilities include deluxe pods and rooms to rent.

It also boasts a spa pool, two steam rooms, two saunas, lounging, and social areas, a cinema, and a 24-hour cafe bar serving food and booze.

But in an announcement on its official website, bosses said punters could expect a more sombre atmosphere on Monday.

The message reads: “The staff and management of Pleasuredrome Spa join together in expressing their sense of deep sadness and loss at the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

“In accordance with Government guidance and advice, Pleasuredrome Spa will remain open on Monday, September 19.

“As a mark of respect to her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, no music will be played within the spa and no films will be shown.

“The cinema and the main screen will show live events around Her Late Majesty’s funeral throughout the day.

“Guests at the venue are invited to join us in a toast to His Majesty King Charles III.

“Drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, including champagne, will be provided at the cost of the management of Pleasuredrome Spa for the loyal toast.”

Social media users took to Twitter so share tongue-in-cheek responses to the gesture.

One quipped: "How do you know that's not exactly what she would have wanted."

Another added: “Hope they’ve invested in black towels for the occasion – white would be highly disrespectful.”

A third commented: "What a story for the grandkids."

However, a lot of people on Twitter were thrilled to hear of the free drink opportunity to toast the Queen with many suggesting they may pay the sauna a visit.
