CANDY LAND: Big Party with SOS, Swing! & TPA

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.

Why do I bring this up? We are co-hosting CANDY LAND this Saturday, August 5th, 2017, with Swing Out Socials (SOS) & The Private Affair (TPA).

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.

CANDY LAND with Swing Out Socials & Swing! at The Private Affair, august 5th, 2017.

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.

A great time at Shadows in D.C.

red grunge textureWell, the first big event for Swing! at Shadows finally came this last Saturday and WOW did it exceed our expectations.  We thought maybe 100 people might come to the event at Shadows on 4/22.  Instead it as well over 230 people!

The Shadows staff did an amazing job getting people checked in, giving tours & working the bar in an efficient manner.

Our own DJ Kurve played a mix of 90’s hits and current hits that kept the place hopping.

At one point we wondered where everyone went.  A little peek back in the main play areas & we knew… a massive orgy had broken out with at least 20 if not 30 people participating.  What an amazingly beautiful sight.

We can’t wait to head back to Shadows for another go round!

Swinger Pet Peeve

Swingers are people… obviously.  Being people, that means Swingers are just as likely to exhibit behaviors that others find disconcerting. One of our biggest pet peeves are the notorious Lifestyle “Time Wasters”. If you’ve been on a Swinger site before you have probably read in at least one online profile “No Time Wasters” that is how much of a problem they can be.

What is a Time Waster? They are the type that send endless emails back & forth often very flattering or asking numerous questions. They will will often suggest getting together in a somewhat vague way but there will almost never be concrete plans. When there are plans, that’s when they show their true-colors. A true Time Waster that makes plans will almost always have “something come up” and they will have to cancel. That’s if you are lucky, the worst type won’t even cancel, they will just sort of go dark when it comes to communication and just not show up.


Swingers

Even couples that have been Swinging as long as we have are not immune to Time Wasters. Case in point, a friend of ours said they wanted to have a house party to celebrate my Hubby’s birthday coming up. The last we had heard from them was 2 weeks ago she said she was off of work the next day and she was going to send out invites. This weekend we messaged her asking how the invites were going. Her response, they decided not to do the party because something came up. We kind of knew this was a possibility with them, the Wife of the couple tends to talk about big plans with us but in all the years we have known them she has yet to follow through. When we do get together with them it is because we made the plans or invited them over to our house.

When it was suggested it would have been nice if they had let us know they are cancelling the birthday party, her reply was, “we didn’t think you would notice.”  😮

Wow!  They know we have a young child, they know we had to get a sitter for the night.  Hell, their kid has sat for us before and yet that never even occurred to her.

So, we cancelled the sitter and messaged her, “We cancelled the sitter. Next time please let us know when you are cancelling.” Of course, we don’t plan on letting there be a next time with them. Lesson learned… again.
