What is a swingers club?

A swinger club differs from a brothel in that while sex club patrons pay an entrance fee and may pay an annual membership fee, they only have an opportunity to have sex with other patrons, not with sex workers.


Family Business

In a world where "swingers" feels as retro as shag carpets and fondue, Tanja Brown prefers "the lifestyle." Her family runs a club in Houston. Awkward moments? You bet, like a guy accidentally propositioning her and her daughter for a threesome. "Incest" in the air!

Pandemic or not, these clubs are thriving. Apparently, frustrated couples don't flock to lifestyle clubs to escape their quarantine companions. It's all about trust and solid relationships. If yours is crumbling, prepare for a nuclear explosion.


But why are these clubs booming in the pandemic? Well, they're like private social clubs, 'BYOB' style. You can get up close and personal, which works great when social distancing isn't the name of the game.

Testing one two... testing one two

Members take health seriously – STD tests, COVID tests – they don't want to be the one who ruined the orgy.

Social Connection

And for those picturing a constant writhing mass, think again. It's more about friendship and community. Some even call it "family." So, if you're craving social connection after a year of lockdown, why not combine it with some synthetic leather ottoman action?
