King's Speech filmed at mansion used for 'porn discos', sex parties Surprised

London: A luxurious 20-million-pound mansion in London used for major scenes of 'The King's Speech' has also been used for commercial sex parties and so-called 'porn discos,' it has emerged.

33 Portland Place, a Georgian property in Marylebone, was picked by the drama's producers to shoot scenes involving speech therapist Lionel Logue helping King George VI beat his stammer, reports the Daily Mail.

The 110-room mansion was also used as the location for scenes featuring 145 Piccadilly, the home of the Duke and Duchess of York before the abdication of his brother Edward VIII.

Last April, Westminster council discovered that the five-floor property had been used to host a commercial sex party, which charged 90 pounds on arrival.

Edward Davenport, the owner of the mansion, was told the masquerade ball and 'porn disco' breached planning guidelines, and was banned from hosting events.

But this month the Court of Appeal granted him permission to challenge the ruling and a judge lifted the injunction that stopped the parties.

Meanwhile, Frederick Porter, general manager of 33 Portland Place, shrugged off the issue of sex parties, saying, "Everyone in the film industry knows what goes on in there. Everybody would like to be at one of these parties."

"They are very well-run events. The people who are invited are all like-minded. There were no sex parties while the filming was going on, of course," he told Evening Standard.

However, a local resident, who asked not to be named, said, "The room where Colin Firth has all his elocution lessons is exactly the same room where sex parties and porn discos have been held."

"For such a royal film, it certainly isn't a very regal setting," he added.
