A local sex club is being hit hard with a neighborhood trend, but not in a good way.

Yet another example of evictions encompassing anyone and everyone, Mission Control, the sex positive community and member play space at 21st and Mission, has lost its lease, and will be forced to move at the end of November.

The 13-year-old sex club is not giving up completely, however, and is actively searching for another location. Learn more about how you can help out here.

We’ve been tracking the eviction trend, and have recently profiled other longtime Mission fixtures who are facing eviction here. Seeing the significant struggle these cases put on the individuals and the community, the neighborhood is mobilizing to address this issue, and a rally will be held this weekend on 24th Street. Additionally, a fundraiser to benefit the Yañez family will be held on Oct. 26.

She believes that everyone is happier when they are outdoors, even if they don’t. At Mission Local, Heather wants to explore what healthy living in the Mission looks like for all socioeconomic classes.

  1. was it an unaffordable rent increase or did the property owner choose not to renew the lease? that part of mission st. is going high end: new condos, movie theater, gym, + + +

  2. Most likely the landlord choice not to renew the lease. As that area of Mission St is slowly but surely improving, the last thing it needs is a sex club. As for the Yanez family, the landlord legally used the Ellis Act to turn his building into TICs/owner-move-in. You would think that paying $450/month/2 apartments for 34 years, they would have enough money to own their own place. That’s the problem with renting, you don’t own anything.
