Neighbors fighting for the closure of a sex club in south St. Louis won a battle Wednesday night.

The club is promoted as a private torture chamber where couples can tie up and whip each other.

The club lost its permit Wednesday, and the owner is not fighting to get it back.

Over the summer, the club owner showed News 4 the facility and said that his intention was to put on safety classes and demonstrations in bondage and sadomasochism where couples can tie up, whip and cage each other.

The city granted a permit for educational safety seminars, but Alderman Craig Schmid and some in the neighborhood took issue with that.

The club can appeal the appeal, but sources say the owner testified in favor of revoking the permit because he’s going to move anyway
