The owners of San Francisco private sex club 'Mission Control,' where clients can creatively employ various electronics cords (amid other activities) say they've seen a notable bump in membership since Silicon Valley's post-crash resurgence began

The tech boom in San Francisco has sparked a renaissance among the city’s members-only sex clubs, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

So what, exactly, are they doing at these parties?

San Francisco State University adjunct instructor Michael Shannon had been the dungeon master a few weeks earlier when some attendees were talking about how they would use consumer electronics cords in sex play.

“If you’ve never tied (someone) up with an Ethernet cable,” Shannon once said, “you’re not geeky enough.”
