Two homes in Las Vegas, Nev., are being sued by the District Attorney’s Office of Clark County for posing as a church and actually functioning as “the world’s sexiest clothing-optional lifestyles club,” the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

The property, which violates a number of codes and is operating as an illegal nudist resort, might on paper be called as “Zen Temple Las Vegas,” yet it’s also known as Sea Mountain Inn and One Love Temple — and does not offer any religious services (it was designated as a place of worship before the current owners purchased it).

The house, situated in a residential neighborhood, has divided rooms for smaller motel-like occupancies. Other features include a dance floor, massage tables, “VIP Prayer Beds” around the pool and a tall black box inside the home with a sign reading “Free Mammogram” with two circular holes cut into it. Which, one can only assume, is unlikely to be performed by a board-certified radiologist.

Metro police and Clark County code enforcement officers investigated the home at 2461 E. Harmon ave. in November and the owners were told to cease operations of their business. A final notice was sent on Jan. 8 that threatened criminal prosecution and fines of up to $500 a day if the problems persisted. On Tuesday, county commissioners voted to allow the District Attorney’s Office to sue the operators of the property and a home which shared a backyard.

The home drew attention to the Better Business Bureau when a person complained of loud music and people frequently screaming from inside the home.

“They appear to be operating a business from this residential property, not a church,” code enforcement officer Lonnie Mann shared in an email with the Review Journal.

According to county records, Dewey and Julie Wohl of Northridge, Calif., purchased the two homes in 2016 for $610,000.

Dewey Wohl did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment, but the Yelp reviews of the resort are glowing.
