Do You Swing?

14 Jul

Swinging, or as previously known as “wife swapping,” is a term where couples swap partners for sex. Usually it involves only married couples, but with more and more long-term couples not conforming to marriage, they have been socially accepted by the swinging community. Swinging may be considered taboo to many, but it dates back to the 16th century. One famous swinger was Marie Antoinette back in the 1700’s, but her actions of being a “taker” more than a “giver” eventually made her lose her head. It became popular in the U.S. during World War II. Military morality between men was required in case of a death, in which they would take care of each other’s wives. After the war ended, it spread to the suburbs where communities would have “wife-swapping” parties. Husbands would throw their house keys in a bowl and the wives would pick one up and spend the night with whoever they got. In the early 1980’s, sex clubs starting popping up once the North American Swing Club Association was started.

Statistics state that 60% of couples feel that swinging improved their relationship, even though that statistic came more from men than women. There has to be a strong level of trust in an open marriage/relationship and most say jealousy isn’t a problem. In Sin City, sex and swinging is not from the norm with having major swingers clubs throughout the city. None of them serve alcohol, but the Red Rooster lets you bring your own. Each allow couples and singles to participate, but cover charges for singles are a lot more. If you’re interested in checking any of them out, the details are listed below.

The Green Door
Perhaps one of the most popular and widely known swing clubs in Las Vegas. Located in the commercial center off E. Sahara, it is open 1 p.m. to 5 a.m., seven days a week. Cover for a one day pass is $50 for couples and $60 for single men. Single ladies are always free except for VIP access and local discounts are available. The reviews on this place vary stating there are a lot of singles, but there is a couple’s only room. Most say the service here is exceptional and explain in detail all of the options.

The Red Rooster
This is most recommended and highly reviewed swing club in Las Vegas. Open since 1982, it is located on 6405 Greyhound Lane. It is open 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. on weekdays, 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays. During late hours, no one is admitted after 11 p.m. Cover for couples is $30, single ladies is $5.00, and single men is $40 to $50. The club includes a hot tub, pool, pool table and dance floor. There are special rooms for couples and singles. It seems from reviews that the older crowd tends to go here so if you are looking for younger this may not be the best place.

Fantasy Swingers Club
This place focuses on fulfilling your fantasies and is located just a couple doors down from The Green Door. Open seven nights a week, 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., couples pay $40, women pay $20 and men pay $80 to get through the door. It has nightly events such as Cougars and Cubs, Lingerie Night and Fat Tuesday. It has a dance floor and a mirrored stage and sells lingerie on property. Reviews of the property are pretty positive even though a few complained it wasn’t busy enough. Couples, however, seemed to have a great time when they go.

Another spot I found was called Power Exchange, but information on the place was unavailable except for a few reviews on Yelp!. I can’t personally recommend a place because I have never been. I am not one to judge anyone, but I don’t know if I could do it myself. I’m not going to lie and say it doesn’t peek my curiosity, but personally I am not one for sharing… men that is…
