MIAMI (CN) - Philip Bleicher and his company Flava Works pay black and Latino men $1,200 a month to live in a rented Miami house and have sex with each other, for live broadcast on the Internet, the City of Miami claims in Miami-Dade County Court.
The City also sues Angel and Regla Barrios and Barrios Investment Group, who rent the house to the other defendants. "The young black and Latino males are flown in from across the country and are paid $1,200 a month to live at the subject property in a dorm-like setting, partaking in sexual acts with each other," the City says. "These sexual acts are performed and simultaneously broadcast via the Internet for all to see, for a fee." The single-family home is in a residential area and its use violates codes and zoning. The City wants it shut down. See complaint.
