Rare but hefty fine in court for explicit lap dances

A "XXX" show which included women giving lap dances and sexually explicit acts at Biloela Hotel Motel in August landed the company in court and with the first charge of its kind in Queensland in 10 years.

Glynmaur Pty Ltd director Megan Furness appeared in Biloela Magistrates Court this week charged with providing acts of a sexually explicit nature for which she did not hold a permit.

A police prosecutor told the court police became aware of an event held at the venue, known as "Bottoms", on August 15 when the business's Facebook page advertised the event.

"So guys, tomorrow night XXX show is happening in the night club, tickets are $20, a show not to be missed," the post read.

The court heard police attended the venue and observed topless waitresses in the main bar area, which was within the company's legal rights.

CCTV footage obtained by the police liquor licensing unit on August 21 revealed a back room of the bar housed private lap dances which were sexually explicit in nature.

The footage showed a male person enter the room at 9.51pm, sit on a single couch and be provided with a drink.

He took money from his wallet and gave it to a female entertainer who gave it to a crowd controller and signalled "five minutes" with her hand.

The footage showed the female entertainer remove her dress, straddle the male person and remove her bra before gyrating on the male's lap, thrusting her breasts in the male person's face, allowing the male to rub her bottom and spanking herself.

She lay on the floor and spread her legs towards the male person with the whole act lasting five minutes.

About 10 minutes later, another male entered the same room with a female entertainer wearing cowboy boots and a black bodysuit.

The police prosecutor said the footage showed a male giving the entertainer "numerous notes" before she gradually removed all her clothes until she was wearing a G-string and a pair of black socks.

The footage showed the woman straddling the male, removing her bra, gyrating her hips and thrusting her breasts in the male person's face.

The entertainer grinded up and down on the male's lap and allowed him to rub her bottom before she spanked herself and lay on the ground, spreading her legs towards the patron.

The footage showed her G-string was see-through and showed her genitals.

Outside at the public bar, three adult entertainers were whipping male patrons, rubbing and sliding on oil, dancing on tables and the bar, allowing male patrons to remove second pairs of G-strings with their teeth and simulating the insertion of sex toys.

Police interviewed Furness on August 22 when she said she was aware the acts would be deemed as adult entertainment.

She told police she had limited knowledge of the part of the Liquor Act under which she was charged.

Furness told police she relied heavily on employees of the hotel, including topless waitresses, who told her the same conduct had been taking place at the venue for some years.

Liquor Enforcement and Proactive Strategies Sergeant Paul Bennett said police would monitor all venues for similar offences closely.

"Police will continue to investigate all compliance matters in licensed premises," Sgt Bennett said.

Magistrate O'Driscoll fined Glynmaur Pty Ltd $2356 plus $86.40 court costs.
