French police shut down an orgy with at least 81 participants in a warehouse on the outskirts of Paris because it breached coronavirus regulations.

Police were called to Collegein – about 20 miles outside Paris – after locals alerted them suspecting a party was taking place in the warehouse on Friday (29 January).

Officers arrived on the scene at around 9pm and found 11 people in the car park, who were fined €135 for breaking France’s coronavirus curfew which restricts movement from 6pm to 6am.

At 11pm, officers were granted legal permission to enter the warehouse where a large number of people were engaged in an orgy. The police also confiscated sound systems, light installation and alcohol in the raid.

A total of 81 people were handed fines for breaking curfew, and three people thought to have organised the “libertine party” were taken in for questioning.

An investigator told The Independent: “The event was in breach of the curfew, and there were also problems with masks and social distancing.

“Those involved in the libertine party cooperated with the police, and there was no resistance to the police.”

It’s the latest in a line of European orgies to breach COVID rules in the past months.

In December, Belgian police broke up a 52-person orgy in a house near a COVID clinic. It emerged later that far right Hungarian MEP Jozsef Szájer was caught taking part in the “lockdown party” – an “orgy” involving 25 naked men and several diplomats.

Szájer, a founding member of the governing party and longtime ally of prime minister Viktor Orbàn, helped draft the country’s constitution a decade ago that defined marriage as strictly between a man and a woman, and pitched a proposal that could block same-sex couples from adopting.

He later resigned from his role as an MEP. He said in a statement that his “misstep” was “strictly personal”, adding: “I ask everyone not to extend it to my homeland or to my political community.”
