An urban explorer stumbled across dungeons, BDSM tables, wigs and old stilettos at an abandoned swingers club.

Dom Jennings, 29, from Stoke-on-Trent, has visited dozens of old buildings, including Utopia – an old swingers club in Staffordshire – and began taking pictures of the sites as a hobby during lockdown. 

While exploring the venue he came across a salt bath, caged rooms, membership forms of those who visited the club, stilettos, wigs and BDSM apparatus. 

Utopia was closed in 2007, and boasted a swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna room along with a host of private rooms for guests to enjoy each others company in.

Father-of-two Dom said: ‘I started exploring in my spare time as something to pass the time during lockdown.

‘I’ve always had an interest in it and when I learnt about this building, I quickly made my way to it to see what I could find.

‘It was really creepy to walk around, the whole place was falling down and I could see all these different X-rated rooms, god knows what went on here.

The building is now very dilapidated and has graffiti on some of the walls

The entrance to the site has a huge black gate out the front and a sign saying ‘private property’ on it

‘I stumbled across wigs, and what I think were sex dungeons, they were little rooms with caged entrances and they looked like jails.

‘I did some research and found the name out, it closed a while ago and at one point caught fire and has been left alone since.

‘I came across a BDSM table which I opted not to touch because of who had probably touched it in the past, the whole place was like a museum to its former self.

‘The most interesting thing I found was the membership forms. The rules stated that all recording equipment was banned and you had to confirm you were not working for the media.

‘I’m guessing the last thing these members wanted was anyone reporting on what was happening inside, which does make me wonder what they were getting up to, and who came here.

When Dom posted the images online, along with a photo of the member forms, it still had the details of one man who joined the club on it.

Dom, said: ‘A man messaged me on Facebook and asked me to take it down immediately because it showed his name.’ 

Speaking about the swimming pool on the premises Dom added: ‘It had a really eerie feel, but everything looks expensive and the pool was huge, although I’m not sure I would want to swim in it myself.’
