Queens. The Heteraclub

The Queens is a club exclusively for women who desire men. At the narrow borderline between art, sex work and care they experience touch and intimacy in 1:1 encounters with male performers – always on their own terms and keeping a curious eye on their own boundaries. 2020 in St. Pauli, now, a pandemic later, in Mülheim an der Ruhr!

Once they come through the door, every visitor becomes a “queen”. Male wishes are not important here: what matters are the wishes of women, their desire and their pleasure. They can choose which one of the five heteraperformers they would like to spend half an hour with. Here one doesn’t have to say no to anything, not saying yes is enough. Nothing will happen unless the woman initiates it herself. And the heteraclub’s number 1 rule applies at all times: everyone has the right to be sexy.

The QUEENS opened its doors for the first time in February 2020. The HETERACLUB had big plans. But then it happened: and the club went from a hundred embraces a day to zero. Now, in 2022, touching and intimacy are possible again. The QUEENS will move from Hamburg to the Ruhr and out of a nightclub into a penthouse. Instead of sitting at a bar, the queens sit together on a sofa, and talk about orgasms, fantasies and broken hearts.

A club for all women who want to express desire again. Who are ready for an intimate encounter of an entirely different, entirely new kind. Who are curious and shy and just want to see first what is possible. And in between there is cream cake served by a friendly heteraperformer in a tutu.
