At Swing! we usually don’t consider ourselves prone to hyperbole. We generally don’t claim that our events & parties are “EPIC!” or “YUGE!”. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had some pretty impressive events; at one of our events the club ran out non-disclosure forms for new members. (Most Swingers clubs require some sort of privacy agreement.) But when we do have something turn out that way, we are just as pleasantly surprised by the turnout. A massive attendance is not our primary goal. Honestly, we just want to have fun. If that means 400 or 14 show up we do our best to make things fun.
First, SOS… Swing Out Socials is another group in the Mid-Atlantic region like us, Swing!. The difference, SOS has been organizing Swinger parties & events for at least NINE YEARS. In that time, SOS has built up a significant following because they organize excellent events and are very inclusive & friendly (we are too, BTW). They have no limits on age except you must be legal for the venues (mostly 21 years or older), they have no racial requirements, no height or weight requirements (neither do we)…. SOS has been so successful because they are so welcoming, friendly & inclusive. They had an event at another club earlier this year where the club actually reached capacity & people who hadn’t made reservations could not get in. That was over 400 people! Needless to say, when I say an SOS event is monumental that is NOT hyperbole.
Now, what about The Private Affair (TPA)? TPA is in Port Deposit, MD, and has been open over SEVENTEEN YEARS. TPA seems to be the best kept secret when it comes to Swinger Lifestyle clubs in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. region though. The last couple of years they are finally starting to get the recognition they deserve. One thing that is amazing about TPA is their attention to detail, every room is themed & immaculately clean. No rooms are just a bed with a light, every single room is decorated differently. You may be thinking “so what?” Well, last year when our friends at Quiver came up to co-host our Beach Blanket Bingo! party, they/we got a private tour before the club opened. The Quiver folks were very impressed. Coming from Texas they had been to numerous clubs throughout the U.S.. When one of them asked our tour guide how large TPA is he replied, “We have 27 playrooms. Well, 26 right now as we are remodeling one room & it’s closed.”
Quiver said, “The most number of playrooms we have seen at a club anywhere was 20!”
Our guide replied with a smile, “Really? That is interesting!”
So, not only do they have A LOT of playrooms, but they are all clean & themed to keep things interesting & fun. TPA also keeps things fresh by updating their main room, dance floor & bar area. The staff is friendly and helpful and the owners are always eager to find out what you think about the club & what they can do to improve. We have never had to wait long to get served at the bar as they are always well-staffed. Another club in the region may get voted the best East Coast Club in the U.S. in the Annual Lifestyle Awards but, if you actually attend the “winner’s” club and TPA you will see, there is NO comparison… TPA wins hands down.
So, this is where we stand for this Saturday, August 5th. We are co-hosting an event with one of largest, friendliest groups that you will ever meet at one of the friendliest & classiest Swingers clubs with an amazing array of playrooms & amenities. The potential for this Swinger soirée is quite possibly going to be EPI… (Nope, no hyperbole today.) We’ll just see how it goes.
