MANHATTAN — Residents of a luxury TriBeCa condo building have filed a lawsuit against their downstairs neighbor for hosting a series of raucous, sex-themed parties featuring S&M-dressed guests, stripper poles and fire play.

Late-night bashes thrown by a sex-toy salesman inside the $1.5 million pad have created a “horrendous noise disturbance” for residents of 109 Reade St., the Daily News reported.

Dimitri Dimoulakis, 32, reportedly hosted parties with “pornographic elements” in the apartment's belowground space, the lawsuit claims. Police have also been called to scene numerous times to break up crowds of hard-partying guests.

"The man's pants are... pulled down to his ankles," the suit stated of a raunchy “fire massage” that took place in the subterranean den of sin. "A crowd of onlookers is ogling at the show, with some of them videotaping it."

Dimoulakis claimed he loaned the apartment to a friend in November who “went completely nuts” putting on a bash called “Phat Friday,” which featured fire shows by performer Madamn Burnz.

The underground space also includes a sunken dance floor accessible by slide, and guests had been seen leaving the scene wearing rubber and spikes, the Daily News reported.

A man named James McGown reportedly purchased the unit in 2006 and has worked with Dimoulakis to run the ribald operation.

Dimoulakis claimed he’s only hosted dinner and art parties inside the condo, but he acknowledged that tenants are miffed with him.

"If you want to party, go elsewhere," a resident of the six-story building told the Daily News. "A nightclub shouldn't be in my building."
