Swingers resorts in the US

We're considering experimenting with a swinger resort. I've heard of several around the country but am curious if anyone here has direct experience with one. We'd prefer decent accomodations, and one that is not on the east coast.

Any thoughts?

Did "swinging" not go out in the 70s or early 80s, with the onset of very unpleasant illnesses?

"Not on the East coast,".... you don't want to run into anyone you know? lol...

Maybe Google can help you?

Truly... it made me flash back to long sideburns, a pasley shirt with wide labels.

I know there are sex clubs of various persuasions in the suburbs of Seattle (my area) but I have *never* heard it called "swinging" in decades.

I guess they go by several names... "adults only" or "alternative" resorts... by we're old fashioned and still call them swingers.

I chuckled when I read your posts... no sideburns or checkered pants here. We're happily married, pretty normal, and financially secure. Just trying to have a little fun.

The reason we're not looking for the East Coast is because we already travel there extensively. This is meant to be partly a fun, new resort experience, but partly travelling to someplace new. Hence, the posting on Fodors.

I'd guess you'll have more luck on some other "swinging" forum. If any of the "regulars" on here gave you any suggestions, I'll bet they'd be teased unmercifully until it got ugly and the editors nuke the thread.

Now I'm hearing that song in my head, you know, the one about Charlotte Johnson:

And we'll be swaanginnn"

Good luck in finding what your looking for, and remember not to get caught out in the storm without a raincoat.

No, Paradise Lakes is NOT a swinger's place! It is not a sex club. It is a clothing optional resort. Big difference! It is affiliated with AANR www.aanr.com (I am a card-carrying member of AANR, pronounce "anner").

Bringing up the idea of swinging with people at an aanr club would be like at a regular "textile" resort. Except that at an annr club you would be more than likely be asked to leave.

How about Hedonism in Jamaica? Is that swingin' enough for you?

"There are places in Bali..."

We're heading to Bali in June, but I'm afraid any such places will have to be off the agenda. With apologies to Groucho, "I wouldn't want to join any club that would have me as a member".

DH & I went to a party last year and I swear to god, this couple tried to get us to swing with them!! It was the creepiest feeling ever!

Not judging, just not for us. And yes, they still call it "swinging."

Not Hedonism (or is it Hedonism II) either, except for the 2nd and 3rd weeks of January when people in "the lifestyle" take over the place. So I'm told.

In downtown New Orleans, there's a place called Colette which advertises itself as a "European couples club" where folks can "act out their desires." You may want to check it out. I've not been personally but work down the street so I've passed by it a few hundred times!

I cannot believe I have anything to share on this topic, but had a conversation last night with the mom of a DJ at a local Swingers Club.

I learned last night, that one does not just walk into the club, but must fill out an application to the private club and the application asks quite a bit of information.

My best guess would be to contact your nearest swingers club, or as sistahlou says, try another forum. I would imagine there is a network.

Does anyone remember the link someone provided on this board to pictures of a clothing optional travel club? The pictures of the members in their birthday suits on the chartered plane elicited quite a few comments
