KINKY couples and singletons who like to have sex outdoors while others watch are using areas such as The Longwalk in Dundalk and local pub and hotel carparks.
Members of the sex website www.swing4ireland.com have listed 24 locations in Louth where people can meet in public and engage in casual sex referred to as "dogging".
According to the website the expression comes from "walking the dog" and covers everything from "outdoor exihibitionism" to "car fun". One member who uses the website posted the following message on Monday, June 29.
Titled "meet anywhere u want", the 28 year-old wrote: "... looking for female fun any age if u want to meet anywhere in dundalk just let me know mail me at or txt me".
Two days earlier, another member who goes by the name 'swingnmarty' advised people who would like to participate in a sex romp near a Dundalk pub to "just sit on one of the seats outside the pub and youll be picked up".
A member called 'topdog69' wrote "longwalk dundalk willing 2 meet women of any age for dicreet sex".
However, 'topdog69' had second thoughts about the age limit and posted the following message the next day: "willing 2 meet women for decreet sex in dlk 18 plus".
The old Newry Road, Bellurgan, the M1 flyover and Dunleer are also listed as dogging locations in messages posted by the sex-mad members.
Someone who is keen to meet people on the M1 flyover wrote: "... leave dundalk go the old ardee rd you see ent to a field on the left there around 10 pm keep your side lights on when you park".
Meanwhile, Dundalk has been listed as one of the destinations for women trafficked into Ireland by Ruhama - an organisation that offers support to females working in the sex industry.
According to Ruhama, there has been a significant increase in the number being brought to Ireland for sexual exploitation.
A newly established Dundalk-based online escort directory offers "discerning Dundalk-based gentlemen truly heavenly Dundalk escort encounters at very down-to-earth prices".
The website claims to have built up "an absolutely stunning portfolio of top-notch young Dundalk escort girls".
Nine women are advertised on the website including a 24-year-old Brazilian called Sabrina.
Sabrina is described on the website as "a lovely Brazilian girl raring to go".
According to her portfolio, "she is not only stunning, seductive and very passionate but also very sensual and uninhibited".
Ruhama's Gerardine Rowley said the trend of taking women to more rural locations has grown over the past few years.
Ruhama has now called for a specialised national garda unit to work to tackle the problem.
