Hello, apparently this question is ok to ask here but not in the Prague forum. We are a 30-something couple travelling to Prague. I would like to take my husband to a cinema where we can watch an adult film together. We are just a fairly conventional couple, not swingers, not into threesomes or anything. Does anyone know of any cinemas in Prague where we could go and just watch a film? I don't want to get approached or hassled by other men; I just want to go and watch a film with my husband and be left in peace by other patrons.
I guess there will be hotels with video on demand in the rooms; is that an option? PJ
I didn't think such creepy places still existed - they don't where I live, having been replaced by personal video or, in "public" place, individual booths. Apparently in Prague those are all gay, but you might try this "museum" examiner.com/article/adult-f...
There is a lot of adult cinema in Prague. Czechs are very modern and open-minded people. Even many Czech general audience films contain some nudity. Try praguepost. com, day and night section.
Wow, I had no idea the controversy I was starting here! Look, we are just normal people, not louts of anything. Top of our list of things to do is to visit the three main opera houses, the Rudolfinum, the various galleries making up the National Gallery in Prague, the music museum and composer museums, to make day trips to places like Kutna Hora and Karlstejn, maybe even Cesky Krumlov if I think I can stand 7 hours on a train in one day, or if we can find a cheap hotel for overnight, to drink Moravian wine. I definitely want to go to the Bethlehem Chapel and to see the statue of Zizka, having studied this period of Czech history in university. So we are not weird or creepy or loutish, and it's not like this is my main interest or anything. It's just that all other aspects of my trip are covered completely adequately in the guidebooks and online. This was just something a little bit risque that appeals to me, and I thought maybe our trip to Prague might be the time to spring something like this on my husband, just for a bit of fun, when we are not busy with the history and the culture and so on. Really, I am talking about spending two weeks in Prague and this taking up, you know, like, half an hour or something, just a little amusement. And yes, I have to say that I think that as far as the morality of it goes, I think that a married couple who like to watch the odd basically pretty tame film is certainly no worse than prostitution, lap dancing clubs, strip shows, and whatever else drunken stag parties get up to. For my hen party, we had a new year wedding, so I went to see The Nutcracker with some of my friends, and my husband's stag party was a trip to Hever Castle and a picnic. Sorry that this has been blown out of all proportion. I am just an educated, professional woman who thought that it might be nice to try something that is fun and not illegal.
That's the trouble with sex. Everybody wants it at one time or another in their lives, it's freely available on the internet, it's used to advertise eg cars, but if anyone admits to actually wanting to have some, people get all upset about it! Good grief, it is the reason why we are all here on this planet! Cathy, I honestly thought that all this moralising and nonsense was behind us after the 60's *sexy* films were banned from public cinema. It seems that some people are still in a dinosaur frame of mind about sex. You are married, it's legal, you are young and want to have some fun and possibly giggle about it when you are in your 70's and 80's with your husband. My only worry is that you will, as you fear, be targeted by men who are all hot and bothered and think you want the same thing that they do. Apparently, all sense of boundaries goes out of the window if certain men err, shall we say, have a stiffie. To avoid any possible danger, you might consider watching the film of your choice in your hotel room where you will be safe, unobserved (unless you want to leave the curtains open) and unlikely to be attacked. As someone previously mentioned, people who kick up the most fuss are either suffering from righteous indignation or aren't getting any themselves. Either way, they have hang ups about it. You don't and appear comfortable with your relationship.
Do you remember that song by the Drifters? Smooching in the back row of the movies on a Saturday night with you? That's where teenagers used to go for a lesson in *Anatomy by Braille* away from parents and nosy mates. I always thought it was quite romantic if the film was just a tad racy..... However, I definitely preferred the back row and not in the middle. Never the front row, of course.....
Thanks again! I think that the answers by Suet are the most pertinent so far, but there have been so many of them! I fear you may be right, and that I am likely to get hassled. Oh well, if it's not something that we can do in peace then I might have to abandon the idea. I appreciate the idea of the hotel room, but, well, kind of been there and done that, not quite the fun I was after to be honest. Just thought, you know, on holiday, in a place that has a reputation for being a bit less buttoned up than the British tend to be, why not have a little treat up my sleeve for the husband. Oh well, if it can't be done safely better not to do it at all.
You might try looking at the online In Your Pocket guide for Prague, they have an adult entertainment section, I scanned through it and didn't see any cinemas but don't have time to read the whole thing. I can't see what all the fuss is about here, the OP is asking about something that is totally legal to do, not only in the country that they are visiting but in the country that they live in, it's not even a grey area like prostitution or drugs which may be legal in the destination country. I'm not sure why the people who were somehow offended by the question just couldn't keep their moral judgments to themselves. And I'm not sure why this is an inappropriate question for the Prague forum either, a poster is asking about a legal activity that one might do in a particular place. Should a poster not be able to ask where to buy cigarettes or alcohol or about adult entertainment venues or sex museums or nude beaches because someone might be offended? Sorry you had to be subjected to the scrutiny that you did but VT is not alone in these sorts of things, I had a run in on Cruise Critic the other day over something as stupid as the dress code on a particular ship. And I've seen countless number of incidents on Trip Advisor as well. Something about the anonymous nature of the internet that cause people to be less civil than they would face to face I think.
The replies were removed as the thread was straying from the original question. Although this is allowable in the Miscellaneous forum there are times when the discussion gets controversial as this one did. There were complaints made against many of the responses so we took the thread back to the responses dealing with the actual question. Danny VT Moderator
Cathy, I hope that your negative experience with the travel forum did not discourage you from using VT. It really is a great website, although things can get out of hand from time to time. I hope that you and your husband have a terrific time in Chechia (Czech Republic). I have done extensive agricultural mechanization work in Chechia, and I quickly fell in love with that great country and her people. Learn some Czech words and phrases before you go. You will be greatly rewarded for doing so. hund
By the way, I wouldn't worry too much about taking in some local entertainment in Prague, Brno, Ceske Budejovice, Cesky Krumlov, etc., unless you are very sensitive or easily offended. There is a great and unforgetable Roma (gypsy) dive in Cesky Krumlov, if you are feeling a little adventuresome. ;-)
