Why did Yab Yum close on 4 January 2008?

On 4 January 2008, the luxury sex club Yab Yum closed its doors for the last time. The decision to shut down came after it was revealed that the club might be guilty of criminal activity. According to sources, the club was under investigation for possible money laundering and human trafficking. In addition, there were reports of drugs and alcohol being sold on the premises. While the club was never charged with any crime, the negative publicity surrounding these allegations was enough to cause its closure. In the end, Yab Yum was simply unable to recover from the damage to its reputation.
