I have to agree, a swing club during a pandemic is not a place I want to be.
We were invited to a small house party on Halloween and they asked everyone to include a mask in their costume. Funny thing is, they did set up a playroom and by the end of the night everyone was naked and playing. Although it was a lot of fun, it wasn't worth feeling sick about taking a risk and I was so worried that I ended up getting tested a few days after. Thankfully I am ok and have not heard of anyone getting sick. We will not be repeating this mistake anytime soon.

I find this whole pandemic to have shown an entirely different side to swingers. The same people who have been preaching how much they adore their husbands, wives, S.O.s, whatever seems to have fallen by the wayside. How many times did we hear people say, "We have the best sex in the world and I love my partner? We do this for fun, for fantasy, to spice up our sex lives. "
Well, if this were the case, staying home and simply playing with your S.O should not prove to be this difficult, should it? I suspect these are the same group of swingers who play without a condom. I've heard that one too: "Well, you let someone do everything else with you, why do you draw the line at penetration without a condom?"
I'm sickened and saddened that the swinger community finds it even a little bit necessary to continue to do what they do during this pandemic. If we are supposed to wear masks and social distance, how do you explain having sex with other people?
I often hear people say, "We only play with safe people." I'm sorry, WTF does that actually mean?
I could go on and on but I think you know how I feel about clubs, hotels or whatever opening for business at a time like this. I understand their need to survive financially, but isn't that coming at rather a high cost to your customers and the rest of the unsuspecting world?

I agree with you both and Linda, you make a good point about the financial aspect of swinging.
For club owners and other venue owners, this can be a catastrophic time for them. Like many other businesses, this has been a tough time and it is not surprising that they are doing what they can to survive. The rest is up to the people who spend time there. Much like the party we attended, we genuinely believed that as we would all wear masks, we would spend the night talking and drinking. Had we thought it would end up the way that it did, we would not have attended the party in the first place.
Perhaps clubs and hotels should be open for a limited amount of people and the playrooms should remain closed. What do you think of that? Seems like a reasonable way to operate for now.
Why the monkey? Because I'm a real swinger.

It's so interesting to see how divided swingers are over the pandemic. Some carry on as though they have immunity and others are waiting for it to pass before resuming any swinging activities. We have been staying away from parties and such but do have 2 couples that we see from time to time. Obviously, nobody ever knows if they are truly "safe", but it seems like a calculated risk. We all work from home and have been socially distancing in our everyday lives.
As far as limiting the number of people and what goes on in a club, good luck with that. The people that are out at clubs have zero concern about getting infected and would be angry if the rules changed. Although it is selfish, I say let them do what they want. Even if the clubs were closed, these people would still be gathering so other than the club owners losing their businesses, not much else would change.

At the beginning of the pandemic we stayed home and locked ourselves away waiting for the plague to pass. It did not and as neither of us have a pre existing condition we went back out. We have been to a swing club near our home almost every weekend since it reopened and we have not noticed people getting sick. The same group is there each week so obviously it is not spreading in the club. Lighten up people!
