Rules You Didn't Know Were in Place for Swingers

To most "squares," the idea of a swingers party elicits visions of a cramped room full of writhing, sweat-soaked bodies; people uninhibited by "traditional" sexual protocols. 

But, in reality, a sex party is a finely orchestrated get-together that not only requires a good bit of planning, but quite a few rules too. When you’re dealing with a large group of people having sex with one another, there need to be swingers rules in place. These rules at swingers parties make everyone feel safe in the incredibly delicate emotional and physical situation they’re in, and also set the tone for the party. 

It might sound surprising, but without rules, swingers parties just aren't as magical as they're supposed to be. 

  • No Means NO

    You'd think this would be pretty obvious, but it's important to reiterate: if someone says no, that's exactly what they mean. It's also important to note if someone says "maybe later," or something similar, that should also be taken as "no." When in doubt, don't do anything unless the person explicitly says "yes." 

  • Bring Your Own Condoms

    Don't expect the host or club to provide condoms for you to burn through while you're getting your freak on. It's presumptuous to think your host should cater to your every whim. Also, condoms come in all shapes and sizes. To ensure getting one that fits like a glove, you should probably just bring your own. Pro tip: bring more condoms than you need - you'd be surprised how fast you run out of those things. 

  • Adhere to Your Club’s Naked Rule

    If you're going to a swinger's club or party, don't try to act all cool by dressing up. If there are rooms that say "no clothes allowed," then take off your clothes before entering the room. Not only is it creepy to be the guy wearing a bunch of clothes at the sex party, but what's the point? 

  • The Host Always Gets a Gift

    If you're lucky enough to be invited to a private sex party, it's probably good form to bring something nice for the host. It doesn't have to be a new car or anything, just something that lets them know you care, and that you'd like to keep being invited to their sex parties. Because, obviously, you do.
