haven't seen it
7 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK to the poster, Obviously you are not in the lifestyle. What do you think people do at a swing club? there's a lot more goes on than humping like rabbits. Most lifestyle clubs are like any other night club you might attend in the front areas. dancing, drinking, flirting etc. People converse about many subjects, we talk about our jobs, or likes dislikes our spouses and just about anything else you can think of.

Not all lifestyle participants are "beautiful 20 something people". The looks and ages of people are as varied as they are in any vanilla club with the exception (maybe) of some girls naked, which i have also seen in vanilla clubs. What people find is there is someone for everyone. Any clubs we've attended aren't not a free for all screw fest. you better ask permission before you do anything with anyone and you better respect a couples limits and relationship, you don't play grab ass on the dance floor without having permission.

What you'll also find, at lifestyle clubs is a lot more respect for each other and people actually talk TO you not AT you. My wife can go off to the bathroom at the club we attend and I don't have to worry about her being grouped, grabbed or molested, I can't say the same for the vanilla clubs i've attended. People also respect your relationship. Most men at a lifestyle club won't approach my wife until he talks to me and the same applies to me and their wives.

I have not seen this film, I was looking for information on it before i bought it. But i couldn't help commenting on your misinterpretation of the lifestyle.

For the record, I am a conservative republican, I have a very good day job, and this is a part of my life that is foreplay for my wife and I>
