Swingers Resorts: Your First Visit to a Swingers Resort
Answers to frequently asked questions about visiting a swingers resort
Admittedly, many of the staff members here at Play Passions are frequent visitors to swingers resorts. Among our staff, we've managed to visit many of the swingers resorts in the United States, Mexico and many in the Caribbean. We've even managed to visit a few in Europe. Our staff has also taken part in swingers travel excursions, swingers cruises and we regularly attend annual swingers events.
This brief "Q and A" is for those who have never been to a swingers resort, but are contemplating it. Swingers resorts are, in a single word, awesome. Especially for married and committed couples. They are a great place to either take your swinging adventures to a new level, or open them up for the first time.
Are they just "adults only" all-inclusive resorts?
Yes, they are adults-only. And most, especially in Mexico and the Caribbean, are all-inclusive.
Are they nude (nudist) resorts?
Not technically. Though many swinger getaways are clothing-optional, they aren’t specifically nude resorts. Which means, you’ll have to cover up for meals and events that each resort specifically requests you do so.
I'm a single male who wants to get in on the action. Is that cool at a swingers resort?
Most swinger resorts are couples-only, though there are a few resorts that do allow singles. These are ideal for the kind of swinging couples where the woman likes to play, while her husband watches. Check the specifics of the resort you're interested in to find out.
Are people having sex everywhere?
No, they're not. Even resorts with names like Hedonism have rules and expected etiquette - sex on the beach or in public is still a no-no, although many resorts have outdoor "play areas", like rooftop swimming pools surrounded by beds.
What about partying?
There is as much partying as you can handle! Most resorts have live entertainment, nightly theme parties (Eyes Wide Shut, Leather and Lace, etc.), and discos, as well as bars that pour all night (and all day).
Is swinging the only activity offered at these resorts?
Like all resorts, swingers resorts have non-sexual activities as well, like off-site tours, snorkeling, and boating. The main difference is that swinger resorts have designated areas for sex, like hot tubs and playrooms. Most people like to hang at the pool or beach in the mornings, do some sort of athletic or cultural activity in the afternoon, then head to the play areas for swingers sex before and after dinner.
Will I be having sex all the time?
That depends on you, your partner, other couples at the resort, the mood - you get the idea. Of course, casual, spontaneous sex is statistically about a million times more likely to happen here than in your favorite dive bar back home, but there's no guarantee at check-in, if that's what you're hoping for.
Are these resorts nice, or second-rate?
Obviously that depends on the specific resort, but most of them are like any other all-inclusive resort at which you’d vacation. Check reviews and talk with others who have visited the destination you're interested in.
Are there any rules?
Absolutely. No cameras, no cell phones, and no sex anywhere you could be seen by someone not on the resort's grounds. Most follow the golden swingers rule, too: No means no. That's about it, but you should check with the resort for details so you don't have any surprises.
What do I tell my friends and family?
Come up with something non-descriptive, like you're headed to a beach resort in Mexico. Find another "vanilla" resort nearby for your fall-back. When it comes to the swinging lifestyle, discretion is the name of the game. Many of these swinger-friendly resorts offer a special, discrete phone number for friends and family to call in order to help conceal where you actually are.
More questions about visiting a swingers resort?
Your best resource is the resort itself. Find a swingers resort that your interested in, then contact the front desk or their concierge - they can answer all your questions before booking a trip. Another resource is a reputable swingers-oriented travel agency like Dream Pleasure Tours.
