Frequently asked questions
What sort of people are swingers?
Swingers come from all walks of life, in all shapes, sizes, ages, economic levels, races & nationalities. On average, most couples are in their late twenties to late forties, Caucasian, middle to upper class and married. Common similarities among swingers include a sense of adventure, a love for new experiences, meeting new friends, honesty, open minded, respect for others and most of all, a very strong, secure and loving relationship with their partner. Swingers, in general, are fun loving people that seem to enjoy life to the fullest.
What is a Swing Club?
Swing clubs are defined as any organization, formal or informal, which exists to provide swinging activities. Swing clubs exist in a variety of forms. These include Swing Clubs, Party Houses, Circles and Socials, Bars and Cocktail Lounges and Contact Services. All but the contact services may be on-premises or off-premises. Contact services work through the mail or telephone and rarely provide swing parties although they may promote group travel. Parties given by on-premises swing clubs may have from forty to eighty or more couples, though sixty couples is typical.
On-premises mean that sexual activity occurs at the party. Off premises swing clubs, cocktail lounges and bars help you to meet other swingers. Swinging then occurs elsewhere, with the interested couples and singles responsible for the arrangements. The arrangements include who is to be invited, the location, date and time. The on-premises party offers a wide possibility of social interaction, selection, potential of swinging with others in a foursome, threesome, one-on-one, or in a group scene. Bisexual as well as heterosexual swinging is possible, principally among women. And the club on-premises party offers this without pressure in a structured environment. Private, semi-private and group rooms are generally provided to meet the desires of virtually everyone. Heated pools, Jacuzzis and hot tubs may be available to accentuate the social environment.

We are really excited about this system and believe that this idea will become common practice in all other lifestyle events and clubs in the future. Below is the Pendulum Wrist Band Chart:
