Are Sex Parties The New Vibrator?

What happens when a virgin partygoer spends a Saturday night swinging?

No longer a suburban secret, sex parties just might be the next vibrator, a sexual thrill once kept hidden and now gleefully embraced by women from all walks of life. And like vibrators, sex parties come in more flavors than Ben and Jerry's. From classic swinger events to nightclubs that provide beds, to pansexual celebrations of the erotic divine, people are coming together all over the country to flirt, fondle and fuck—however their hearts (or other body parts) desire.

What's more, it's women who are taking the lead in the new party scene, creating female-friendly communities that emphasize both safety and adventure. The rules are strict, and apply across all kinds of parties: condoms are a must, every touch must be consensual, and men are meticulously screened and expected to remain on their best behavior.

 

Why I'm Here, Now

I've been interested in sex parties for a long time, but until tonight, I have not ventured out to one. Not because I'm shy or nervous or afraid to ask my partner what he thinks about the idea. My hesitation stems from a rather quirky place: I didn't want to tarnish my own fantasy of what a sexual celebration could be.

I've always wanted to participate in an erotic festival where our lusty appreciation of food, wine and sex combine into a spiritual gestalt. In my story, the event centers around fecundity and involves bonfires and drums and oiled-up men dancing and mock-fighting to impress the women. Couples and groups slip into the fields to make love in all kinds of combinations, and details like marriage vows and promise rings do not matter for the duration.

Because this fantasy is so detailed, and so tailored to my own personal desires, I figured that no modern sex party could live up to my dream, and I would leave disillusioned.
