Unscripted Love at the Hotel Orient

Sometimes love deserves its own realm, far away from the prying eyes of the outside world. Where better to have a romantic escape than at Vienna’s legendary no-tell hotel: the notorious Hotel Orient. Amid decadent drapery and imitation artwork, these young women can be whoever they want to be. For our “Love is Love” issue we invite you to join in an intimate moment in these rooms that have seen many a passionate encounter.
