Ron "the hedgehog" Jeremy is putting a hold on his porno productions to become a Portland businessman in the apparently recession-proof business of swinging. Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso, a private members-only upscale swingers-night club, is set to open mid-June downtown. The discreetly marked, 133-year-old building will soon become a haven to swingin' singles and swappin' couples 21 and over. According to a statement released by Jeremy's business partner, Paul Smith,

Jeremy chose Portland due to Oregon's strong constitution and the community's deep-seated support of sexual diversity. Jeremy said, “I love Portland. Every time I am there, I am struck by how accepting people are of others' sexual diversities. When we began to brainstorm Club Sesso, I immediately wanted to have Portland as our first location”. Jeremy continued, “I have enjoyed an amazing career solely due to the fact I was allowed my sexual freedom. I want to give other people the chance to enjoy their sexual freedom in a high-energy nightclub environment that is upscale and fun.”
