LAS VEGAS - A Las Vegas sex club is suing the Clark County Business License Department, which cited The Green Door twice last February for operating an adult theater without a license. The misdemeanor citations were based on the Internet porn customers can view at booths inside the swingers’ club.

According to Greendoorlasvegas.com, The Green Door is Las Vegas' hottest, most unique social spa and fitness facility where consenting adults come to play.

"We allow open nudity and open sexual behavior," the website states. "Sex is permitted anywhere in the facility as long as it is consensual and there is no monetary exchange.”

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, The Green Door has been embroiled in a zoning dispute with the county, which is trying to close down swingers’ clubs.

It appears that the club’s use of cybersex is being used by Clark County authorities as a way to shut it down. In an editorial, the Review-Journal contends, “the citations are probably just a clumsy attempt to harass the club's owner.”

The Green Door lawsuit may be a precedent-setting case pertaining to what happens when two worlds collide: brick and mortar establishments and virtual reality. The interaction between real life and cyberspace is still largely uncharted territory.

Allen Lichtenstein, who is The Green Door’s attorney, told the Review Journal: “I really don't think the county understands the implications of (its) actions. This is very far reaching, because it suggests the government has the right to regulate access to the Internet solely on the basis of what possible content a person might conceivably access.”

Lichtenstein also handles cases for the Las Vegas branch of the American Civil Liberties Union.
