Polish translation:raj
Explanation:
According to my Webster's dictionary fleshpots are places offering luxurious and unrestrained pleasure or amusement. Therefore, one can, probably, use here the term "raj" in a figurative sense - zanim wroce do "raju"

Explanation:
O My God! Why "raj" (=paradise). If it is Art/Literary, more context please! Maybe it is ironic. Or sardonic. Or anything.
Why (as my old Longman dictionary says)[usually plural, usually humor or derogatuve] "a place supplying good food, drink, singing and dancing, etc., esp. a place where people go for sexual pleasure" should be understood as "paradise" (= "raj"). Why not "koryto"?
