Police in Malaysia, where sodomy is a crime, broke up a gay sex party and arrested 37 men, including a Briton and a Chinese national, a senior official said Tuesday. Police, acting on a public tip-off, raided a fitness center in northern Penang island Sunday while a sex party was in progress and arrested the 37 men, aged between 20 and 45, said local police chief Azam Abdul Hamid. Apart from the two foreigners, all of the men are ethnic Chinese Malaysians including three who work at the center, he said. Police found used condoms strewn all over the floor, seven tubes of lubrication jelly, 20 gay magazines, four pornographic VCDs and six boxes of new condoms, he said. "Based on our information, the center was regularly used for these gay activities," Azam told The Associated Press. "This is against our culture, our way of life."
