Snctm, a members-only elite sex club that hosts international events, is in hot water — and it could potentially jeopardize the privacy of its wealthy members.

The club — where a basic membership costs $20,000, while the special "Violet Key membership" for male members is a one-time payment of $1 million — centers itself on the idea of exploring the boundaries of what sex means, and how it makes its members feel. Snctm has reportedly hosted high-profile guests at its parties including Gwyneth Paltrow and Bill Maher.

Referred to as "erotic theater" by its founder, Damon Lawner, the club hosts masquerades, pool parties, classes, and dinner events for its male members, as well as approved female guests, all with the ability for attendees to either participate, or simply act as voyeurs.

This week a feud erupted between Lawner and the club's first and most notorious member, Phuong Tran — also known by his character name, "Bunnyman" — when it was announced that Tran's membership had been revoked.

Tran posted an Instagram in November to say he believed "The pillars (privacy, safety, and exploration) that sustained the Club have crumbled." He has also accused Lawner of leaking names of celebrity guests to the media. The Dominus membership — the type Tran lost — is available to only 20 people worldwide and costs $75,000.

While no photography is allowed inside a Snctm event, HBO and Showtime have both aired documentaries exploring the parties the club hosts. Ahead are scenes from their recordings that show a small glimpse into the private and exclusive world of Snctm.
