Pacha, 7 males, slightly worse for wear, no pat downs or nothing.
Sundays at Space, 13 males together. Again, not so much as a rub down down with a feather duster! Maybe we were just lucky. Obviously none of us had handbags though, and there is a sign about no cameras.
The funniest thing I saw all weakend was Number1 on the things not allowed into Space was "people with an unacceptable standard of personal hygiene". I kid you not
As a girl I got in with a little less bother than the males I think......never bothered me much at all.....I got a camera in everywhere I wanted to. Even in a handbag too.......which never got checked.
When I was there (14th-21st Sept) I got searched a few times, however it was about as thorough as putting a flatpack wardrobe up by hammering random parts together as you feel like it. I went to DC10 and Es Paradis (no search), Eden, Pacha and Amnesia and none of them even felt my trouser pockets!!!
Very lame - yes it lets you smuggle stuff in if you want but if I wanted to I could have taken a knife in with no problem at all.
