The pandemic hasn't stopped people from getting their freak on at possible COVID super-spreader events -- they've simply gone underground, and they're going to extremes to keep it hidden.
A source with direct knowledge tells us the events have been happening since the start of COVID, but the recent surge in cases has made them more hush-hush. There's a vetting process, but more for secrecy than public health issues.
For starters, we're told anyone looking to access these speakeasy-esque events will first have to get in touch with a real sex worker.
Alice Little, a popular prostitute in Nevada, tells us sex workers -- who advertise on social media and escort sites -- serve as gatekeepers, giving only their most trusted clients the hookup to a party.
Alice says the sex worker might ask for references -- not unlike a job interview -- but we're told the grilling is more to sniff out narcs and undercover agents ... and not about health issues.
While you'd think there would be testing -- for COVID and STIs -- we're told that's not the concern for these underground parties ... they're more worried about getting busted by law enforcement.
This is a big change, and a dangerous one considering we're in a pandemic. Alice says pre-COVID these events would typically be run by brothels ... which were more likely to require medical testing.
Anyway, if you pass muster, we're told the sex worker takes you to the so-called kingdom -- which could be at a strip club, a private residence or even a literal underground hideaway.
As we reported, a swingers party in NYC was busted and more recently ... 158 people were arrested in L.A. County. So, these events are clearly on law enforcement's radar, and for good reason.
Party-goers risk arrest, but now the other major concern is the threat to public health and spreading COVID.
Diplo is firing right back at a woman accusing him of revenge porn, now seeking a restraining order of his own ... claiming this woman's the one who's posting his nudes everywhere.
The DJ just filed court docs Tuesday asking a judge to sign a TRO to stop an old fling of his, dead in her tracks after he claims she's been posting explicit photos and videos of the two of them having sex ... while also incessantly harassing both him and his family.
In his paperwork ... Diplo claims they met in 2018, and started exchanging dirty photos and videos with each other -- content Diplo says he expected her to keep private. He says they also had sex a few different times.
At some point in 2020, Diplo says his relationship with her soured, and that's when she allegedly started surfacing explicit images of both him, him and her as well as videos of him and other women that he says he sent her ... none of which he signed off on.
Diplo claims she posted some nudes of him on her Instagram account, and then started sending dirty videos and photos directly to past partners of his -- including to his baby mamas. He also alleges she's been stalking and harassing him nonstop -- and wants a judge to put an end to it with an official court order, forcing her to halt her embarrassing leaks.
We should note ... the woman was granted a temporary restraining order against Diplo last month, in which she alleged similar things regarding revenge porn and harassment.
Diplo's attorney, Bryan Freedman, tells TMZ ... "Unfortunately, in spite of repeated requests to stop, this individual has continued to stalk and harass my client and his family for more than a year. As a result, we have asked the Court to grant a restraining order against her and to continue this case so that this troubling situation can be resolved once and for all."
A few dozen swingers are battling an outbreak ... of COVID-19 after couples passed around the virus, along with their partners, at a New Orleans convention.
The 5-day Naughty in N'awlins romp last month turned into a super spreader event, with at least 41 swingers testing positive for the coronavirus ... according to one of the organizers.
Naughty Events honcho Bob Hannaford says the swingers convention did everything it could to try and stay COVID safe -- touchless check-ins, temperature checks, extra sanitizing, wristbands denoting who previously tested negative or had antibodies. It wasn't enough to stop the positive tests in the aftermath of all the raunchy fun.
The first positive test came back the day after the swingers convention ended and 40 more followed. Out of the 300 swingers who attended, 41 have tested positive. That's a positivity rate above 13 percent.
While at least one swinger was hospitalized, the majority of the positive cases showed minor symptoms or were asymptomatic. The organizer's having second thoughts about the whole event ... saying he wouldn't swing there again, in hindsight.
Not sure ya need hindsight to know swapping bodily fluids with strangers in a pandemic is dangerous, but whatever. 🤷🏽♂️
"I haven't had sex in a while, which is difficult to do since I have a girlfriend and she's hot as f**k."
Jake and Nate are on the undercard for the epic Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones fight this Saturday ... and the Youtuber-turned-boxer is taking a page out of Rocky Balboa's book and abstaining from banging before hitting the ring.
Remember, it was Mickey who famously said "women weaken legs" in the original "Rocky" film ... and superstars like Floyd Mayweather have fully committed to the superstition.
So ... how is Jake's lady taking it??
"She's pissed, man," Jake tells TMZ Sports. "She hates me. She just looks at me like, 'I f**king hate you, bro. Why can't we do this right now?!'"
FYI -- the social media superstar and the Shagmag founder have been together since earlier this year ... and Julia has even helped Paul in the gym while prepping for the Robinson fight.
Aside from sex, Jake says he's also been cutting out food as he works toward making his goal weight of 189 ... so it's safe to say, Saturday can't come soon enough for the dude.
Be strong, Jake ...
A bunch of free-spirited sex revelers had their good time cut short by cops in the Big Apple -- an interesting contrast to another attempted New York bust gone bad.
The NYC Sheriff's Office busted in and broke up an underground swingers club early Sunday morning in Queens ... which is said to have been hosting upwards of 80 people -- a big no-no under Gov. Cuomo's new 10-person-or-less rule.
Sure enough, there was a rager going down -- music was blasting and people were mingling and sipping on booze, which the Sheriff's Office says was being illegally served. Oh, and there were some people making whoopee too ... all together.
The cops say they found three couples having sex in a small room -- apparently, this swinger joint -- which goes by Caligula, of all names -- has services for that if you're looking to get busy. The Sheriff's Office even snapped a shot of one of those rooms, plus a price sheet going over rates, and what looks like a box of condoms!
All in all, two organizers and one patron were charged with misdemeanors -- and the place was cleared out. The NYP reports that the manager was hit with lots of fines ... which amounted to about $16,000 for violating emergency measures issued by the state. The guy reportedly also got dinged for booze infractions.
This is almost a complete 180 from what went down in neighboring Buffalo just the night prior -- when Sheriff's deputies and county health workers tried barging in on a packed business meeting to shut it down, only to get chased off by the mob.
Maybe the Erie County crew should call up the city boys and get a few pointers on how to go about handling these types of situations. Just a thought!
Jeff Ross is going after the woman who's accused him of statutory rape when she was 15 ... and he claims she's trying to extort him.
The comedian's filed a defamation suit against Jessica Radtke, who made headlines earlier this year when an article came out in which she alleged Ross began having a sexual relationship with her in 1999.
According to the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Ross admits he was a work acquaintance with Radtke at a New York comedy club, and he did have a consensual relationship with her ... but not until 2002, when she was an adult.
Ross says all of her accusations of having sex with her when she was a minor are "completely false," echoing his public denial of the allegations in June.
The comedian claims Radtke has been on a campaign to publicly attack him since 2017, but when her efforts to smear him in tabloids failed ... he says she made up the story about his underage relationship with her.
According to the docs ... this culminated with her creating a Facebook page in late 2019 called "Iwas15hewas33," which he says was done to defame him and get attention. Ross says she also "made the preposterous claim that she was Ross’s 'date' at a number of high-profile public events, including celebrity roasts, that were attended by thousands of people."
He adds ... "To make her false allegations as salacious as possible, Radtke also falsely accused Ross of frequently having unprotected sex with her while she was underage and claimed Ross proposed to marry her."
According to the defamation lawsuit ... Ross says he has multiple witnesses to corroborate him not dating Radtke until she was 18.
As if that wasn't enough of a repudiation of her claims, his attorney at Freedman and Taitelman tells us ... "Jeff Ross has been defamed by a serial accuser for financial gain. Her own father, mother, brother, ex-fiancé, former best friends and others have documented proof of her lying and are supporting Jeff in this case. This lawsuit will clear Jeff’s name and hopefully stop others from continuing to be wrongfully accused by the defendant."
"Having sex in my living room and [the US Anti-Doping Agency] comes pounding on my door at 8pm."
That's UFC fighter Yancy Medeiros explaining the most AWKWARD drug test in his life ... when a tester came pounding on his door in the middle of a banging sesh!
FYI -- USADA often conducts random drug tests on athletes to try and prevent the athletes from cheating. So, they can literally bang on an athlete's door at any moment to demand a urine sample, and the athlete has to deliver the goods!
Seems to be the case with 33-year-old Yancy "The Kid" Medeiros -- who was engaging in some romantic activities over the weekend when a USADA agent came calling.
Yancy says he made the guy wait outside until he finished up with the sex ... but the reaction from the tester was worth it.
Having sex in my living room and @usantidoping comes pounding on my door at 8pm... best part, him trynna be all professional as I look him in the face, knowing this foo heard everything going down... 😂been tested pre/post competition, but “during” is a first #youreallonsteriods— Yancy Medeiros (@ymedeiros) November 15, 2020 @ymedeiros
"Best part, him trynna be all professional as I look him in the face, knowing this foo heard everything going down," Yancy said.
"Been tested pre/post competition, but 'during' is a first," he joked.
Medeiros (15-7) has been fighting in the UFC since 2013 -- so, he should be pretty familiar with the USADA testing situation.
He's currently on a 3 fight losing streak -- most recently taking an "L" to Lando Vannata back in February -- but the Hawaiian is expected to return to the octagon soon.
Good to see he's staying "active" during his time off though ...
Claudia Jordan thinks Donald Trump was always cool to her because he wanted to get in her pants, and now she's comparing him to folks like Thomas Jefferson. That's NOT a Presidential reference, either.
The "Celebrity Apprentice" alum opened up about her reality show days with Trump while on the latest edition of the Political Junkeez podcast. It's no secret she hates DT now, but back then she says they got along fine enough -- but added that was only "because he wanted to f**k."
Now, she didn't accuse him of trying anything untoward -- sounds like it was more of a vibe she got from Trump -- but did say no one should take his admiration for her as a sign he's not racist.
In fact, she compared him to slave owners who had sex with their slaves.
Claudia competed on seasons 2 and 6 of "Celebrity Apprentice," but also knew Trump from her days in the Miss USA competition.
She says she didn't have any political beef with Trump. Not at first, anyway, but she explained why and when he went to the dark side -- in Claudia's opinion, of course.
Jeff and Lauren Lowe ain't nothing but mammals ... the 'Tiger King' stars are gonna get paid to do it on camera, but not for the Discovery Channel.
Sources close to the 'Tiger King' stars tell TMZ ... two of the biggest adult entertainment companies have reached out to Jeff and Lauren to offer them big money for a sex tape with lots of intercourse.
Our sources say Jeff and Lauren are being offered around $300,000 per video to shoot 3 videos.
We're told the XXX companies want one video of Jeff and Lauren banging together, another with them getting down with their nanny, and a third video with them and another guy of Lauren's choosing.
So, that's a couple's sex tape, a ménage à trois and a devil's threeway!!!
Our sources tell us Jeff and Lauren are definitely going to ink a sex tape deal, but they're still deciding on which company to sign with. We're told a deal is likely to be completed by the weekend, so it's coming down to the wire.
Jeff and Lauren are getting ready for lots of camera time ... sources say they're about to start filming 'Tiger King 2' and it's gonna cover the sex tape saga.
Lauren's already warming up for her first sex tape ... she just started an OnlyFans account.
Keith Raniere -- the leader of NXIVM, a sex cult operating under the guise of a self-help organization -- will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
The judge sentenced 60-year-old Raniere to 120 years in prison Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court. His sentencing came after 15 former NXIVM members confronted him over the physical and emotional abuse they endured under his guidance in the cult.
Raniere -- known as "Vanguard" to his followers and the subject of the HBO docuseries, "The Vow" -- was arrested in March 2018 for sex trafficking, but was still relatively flying under the radar until it came out that "Smallville" actress Allison Mack was linked to him and the cult. She was arrested the next month.
Mack allegedly served as Raniere's accomplice in forming the DOS group in NXIVM, which manipulated women into being branded above their pubic regions with his initials.
Raniere was convicted of wire fraud conspiracy, sex trafficking conspiracy, forced labor conspiracy, and 4 other charges for his role as leader of the cult for 2 decades.
As we reported ... Mack pled guilty in her case to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering in April 2019, and is still awaiting sentencing. She's facing up to 40 years.
She said at the time of her guilty plea ... "I must take full responsibility for my conduct. I am very sorry for my role in this case. I am very sorry to my family and to the good people I hurt through my misguided adherence to [NXIVM leader] Keith Raniere’s teachings."
Dana Stubblefield's wife says her husband is an innocent man, telling TMZ Sports she's convinced the accuser is lying ... saying she's worried about what could happen to him in prison.
We spoke with Terri Stubblefield ... who's been married to the ex-NFL star for 11 years. They have 2 young children together.
Terri had filed for divorce back in 2016 after she learned about the allegations against Dana ... but they have since reconciled.
Terri admits that Dana screwed up by having sex with another woman ... but she believes it was consensual -- and says allegations he used a gun to rape the accuser are just plain wrong.
"There's no denying they had sex, but he didn't rape her. He didn't have a gun. Dana is 300-something pounds. I don't think he needs a gun to hold down somebody at all."
Terri also says Dana is "not that kind of person. He's a very sweet person."
Terri says she needs Dana to help raise their children and she's terrified at the idea he could spend the rest of his life in prison.
As we previously reported, Stubblefield was sentenced to 15 years to life for raping a woman at his Santa Clara, CA home back in 2015.
Prosecutors say the woman has mental and physical disabilities. Terri says she's spent years combing over the allegations, and simply doesn't believe the accuser's story -- any of it.
Terri says over the past few years, Dana's friends and former teammates have turned their backs on him -- with a few exceptions -- praising Randy Kirk and Ron Stone for sticking by Dana.
"I believe that some of his other teammates that I thought he was closer to would step forward and they haven’t."
Mrs. Stubblefield -- who is now focused on appealing the conviction -- has a message for everybody who thinks her husband is a terrible person.
"Please don't think that Dana is a monster because he's not. He is a great person and you all know better. Don't let the media fool you! He's a really good person, a great father, caring with a big heart. He just made a mistake."
12:11 PM PT -- 6ix9ine's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, tells TMZ ... the rapper will "defend the lawsuit vigorously" once he's properly served. Lazzaro adds that it's been 5 years ... and she's now deciding to sue.
Tekashi 6ix9ine's old criminal case -- in which he pled guilty to use of a child in a sexual performance -- has come back to haunt him ... because he is now being sued by the person who claims she's the one in the video.
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the woman, identified as Jane Doe, is suing the rapper for allegedly sexually abusing her at a party in 2015 ... when she was just 13 years old.
Jane Doe claims, on top of being underage at the time, she was under the influence of drugs and alcohol and was unable to consent as 6ix9ine and another adult, Tay Milly, made 3 sexually explicit videos which she says they later posted online.
According to the docs ... the first video featured Doe performing oral sex on Tay Milly while Tekashi did pelvic thrusts behind her -- without engaging in sex -- and he slapped her butt. The second vid allegedly featured the girl sitting on 6ix9ine's lap in a bra and underwear, and in the third ... she claims she was laying naked across their laps while Milly groped her.
Jane Doe is suing 6ix9ine and Tay Milly for child sexual assault, child sexual abuse and infliction of emotional distress.
As you may recall ... Tekashi took a plea deal in the criminal case in October 2018 -- in which he admitted to partaking in the making and disseminating of a music video featuring a sexual video of a 13-year-old -- and was sentenced to 4 years probation.
In a recent interview with the NY Times, the rapper said he atoned for his actions, but also claimed he was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He seemed to downplay his crime as well, adding ... "I was 18 at the time. Am I this 40-year-old Jeffrey Epstein type?"
We reached out to 6ix9ine about the lawsuit ... no word back so far.

The rapper posted a video late Thursday to remind fans, and haters alike, she's gonna live life on her terms no matter what anyone thinks about her reconciling with her husband.
Cardi mocked the comments she's seen online, saying ... "Twitter users be like, 'Cardi, you're in a mentally abusive relationship. Oh my gosh. We gotta save you."
Then she made it clear they've got it all wrong ... "I be, All right, but can I f**k him today? Because I need to have sex."
Cardi also made a totally sarcastic apology to her fans saying, "Imma just give ya an apology because ya want me to apologize for living MY LIFE the way that ya live YOURS. Im sorry. Im not perfect I don’t want to be neither."
You get the point ... she's sick of getting flak for getting back with Offset. She's already denied doing it for attention, and said the real reason she's been flip-flopping is because she's a "crazy bitch."
BTW, she also gave a hilarious shout-out to all the guys sliding into her DMs.
During the rapper's birthday celebration last weekend and another outing in Atlanta together this week, they seemed way more like a happily married couple than exes moving on ... and Cardi says the reason is pretty simple.
Cardi denies she's gone back to Offset for attention, instead it's just that she's a "crazy bitch" who can't make up her mind. She says one day she's happy, the next day she wants to beat him up ... and then she starts to miss him all over again.
She adds ... "It’s hard not to talk to your best friend. It's really hard not to talk to your best friend."
Of course, there's also a sexual reason too. Cardi put it bluntly -- "It's really hard to have no d**k."
Cardi also responded to haters accusing her of only taking her husband back because he bought her a brand new Rolls for her 28th bday. It's not an outright denial, but again it sounds more like Offset just has what Cardi wants ... in his pants.
Cardi also casually claimed she's not bipolar and even took a test to prove it.
As you'll recall, they've been through rocky patches before, and even though Cardi filed for divorce last month claiming their marriage was beyond repair ... she's seeing it differently now. Or at least today.
Ally Brooke says it's tough being a virgin, especially when you think you're the only one -- something she wants other late bloomers to know is a complete and total misconception.
We spoke to the Fifth Harmony singer about the recent revelation that she hasn't done the deed yet -- which is crazy to think about ... considering she's gorgeous, famous, but also ... already creeping up on age 30. Ally's 27 right now, but maintains ... she hasn't had sex.
The reason -- which she lays out in detail in her new memoir, 'Finding Harmony' -- is because she's waiting for marriage ... plain and simple. Our photog asked if she comes across temptation as a pop star, especially on the road, and Ally didn't mince words.
She says, yes, of course, she's battled the urge throughout her career and life ... but tells us she overcomes that with a steadfast dedication to the end goal -- namely, being with one partner, which she feels will give her ultimate satisfaction and happiness in that realm.
Fair enough!!! We also asked if she had any advice for other virgins out there ... and Ally had a nugget or two of wisdom to pass on. Watch -- her message here should hopefully bring comfort to those still holding out, and let them know they're far from alone.
As for how the no-sex decision has influenced her professionally ... Ally spills on that too. Sounds like she's been able to navigate it well -- with just a few tweaks along the way.
The First Lady's former BFF and adviser, Stephanie Wolkoff, just released the audio, recorded in 2018, and you hear Melania going off about the fact Stormy was getting A-list treatment with a Vogue cover story. The September 2018 issue was a big deal at the time of this recording because it's when the Stormy hush-money scandal was making headlines
Anyway, Melania says ... "Go Google and read it, Annie Leibovitz shot the porn hooker, and she will be in one of the issues" Wolkoff responded with confusion about the term "porn hooker," forcing Melania to say Stormy's name.
The recording, which Wolkoff reveled on Michael Cohen's 'Mea Culpa' podcast, shows Melania had the exact kinda disdain you'd expect her to have for Stormy.
This is just the latest embarrassing convo Melania was recorded having with Wolkoff -- who's been slowly releasing the audio clips to pimp out her own tell-all book about her relationship with Mrs. Trump.
Prior to this, she dropped a clip of Melania shrugging off the immigrant children in cages controversy, and getting pissed about having to deal with White House Christmas decorations.
