Forget Christian Grey's red room of pain, at Pure Pleasure Parties in Spain's clubbing capital, there's a 'human jigsaw room', consisting of a 'giant bed where it's all happening', says organiser Louise.'Most people don't have to have sex on a bed, you could have it on a couch, the corner of a couch, there's plenty of bed space.
