Ok Peaceman then why is it everything in Central Florida relates to Disneyworld- when in fact Disney is in the middle of no where? Literally.

While I agree that personal responsibility and parental accountability is sincerely lacking, to be wise, the following should have been done:

1) The hotel should have either booked the swinger party into a more private ballroom or covered up "the glass atrium into the ballroom" THAT is just asking for boobies to ensue :)

2) The swinger's group should have used the better part of discretion and kept the flagrant displays out of the hallways and common areas, and should have insisted on some type of more private room.

These two things should have been done. This is a reason, as stated above, that my wife and I don't go to large, open parties like this.

\Now, back to my regularily scheduled lurking...
\\And, pretending to work!

If the hotels should be required to notify parents of a swingers convention in their establishment, I think they should also be required to notify me if they are housing hordes of families for a soccer tournament.

There's nothing like staying in a hotel with hundreds of rugrats running up and down the hall, slamming doors and such.

Or is this another one of those things where families without children have to make accomodations/exceptions for those with children, without expecting the same courtesies in return?

Where's SSCCATAGAPP when you need them?

What exactly where these 'swingers' doing? If they were having sex in public places, or harassing other guests, that would be one thing, but simply walking around in skimpy clothes being flirty, wasnt illegal last time I looked.
and I agree with RainbowTiedye, you dont hear the swingers complaining about kids running around the hotel, do ya? Im sure the little shiats were causing more of a rukus than the swingers were.
also, if parents dont want their kids to be around inappropriate behaviour, then bringing them up in the soccer world, isnt the best idea. Infact, for that matter, does *ANY* sport have anywhere near the number of drunken riots and brawls as soccer does?
but ohhh noes, the boobies are worse

I suck at reading comprehension, but people seem to think that they were runnking nekked through the halls...

The way I understood it, they were doing their thing in a Ballroom that people could *see* from the halls through a glass atrium...

World of difference there, IMHO.

Typical parental stupidity! It's all well and good for the kids to watch violent, bloody, intentional carnage but the sight of naked people might warp their little darlin's. GROW UP people - your teenage boys are well aware of sex & looking for the chance to try it, your teenage girls are well aware of sex & looking for the nerve to try it. Seeing naked adults isn't going to hurt them. Seeing naked adults having sex may excite them or may gross them out (some of those adults gross me out) but it won't damage them if you have the good sense to educate them before &/or after the fact. If you don't have that much sense then you shouldn't have kids - EVER!

I have been to several swinger parties in hotels. and several home parties as well as some dedicated swing clubs.
The looks and age range from 21yo hard bodies to 75yo slobs.
you may be surprised how many soccer moms may attend one of these every now and then.
my wife and I have met some great people and some of our best friends through swinging.
If you met us on the street, work or church you would never think a thing about us being swingers.
the women at these parties do tend to dress on the slutty side but no one complains.
I have had lots of fun at these parties and I have also been with some women that you wake up in the morning and say what the fark was I thinking. (55yo German woman comes to mind )
There are parties like this in most larger cities.
I know of monthly party that they rent out a ballroom and most the rooms in a local hotel and 1 hotel lounge that swingers meet every week in Knoxville TN (the Bible Belt)

BY THE WAY - a quote from the article:

"said they were shocked by the parade of sexually adventurous partygoers who sashayed through the glass-enclosed atrium, sometimes flashing breasts and bare buttocks in front of their children"

WHY the hell did the parents & kids stick around the atrium long enough to have a "sometimes"? - Perhaps mom & dad were busy being turned on & temporarily forgot the kids were with them.

this is why you never, evar sleep on the bedspread. Don't touch the bedspread. Don't put any vital organs or your children on the bedspread.

Wonder what was in the room before you got there? Now you know.
Enjoy the soap.

and for god sakes, the ice bucket is NOT cleaned. I had my balls in it.

Blah!

Several things sprang immediately to mind:

1. "How much the women? Your daughters, how much for your daughters? I want to buy them, how much for the women?"

2. "We thought we were coming to Orlando, not the Las Vegas Strip," said Mark Gilbert who evidently has never ventured outside of his hometown of gooberville let alone to tourist central Florida.

3. I would MUCH rather spend the night at a hotel full of swingers than 11-13 year old girls. The swingers are better behaved and quieter.

Disney is not even in Orlando, but about 20 miles SW, though it's a common misconception. And Gay Days is in June, not February. They come down the same week as the Discover Awards and Inventors thing at Disney. Not sure what the connection is, but we've wound up there for the latter, not knowing about the former.

To me, you have to know that any hotel during New Years Eve may be full of chaos. They should have stayed at a Disney hotel which has tight security against that sort of thing (and even then). I agree that perhaps the swingers could have toned it down, but New Year's Eve, we all know, is for getting crazy.

People should think about these things. We were staying at a campground once with our motorhome and the guy next to us was complaining that he came to the campground on Fourth of July for peace and quiet...Duh...

Wait a second... why the fark would a swingers' convention be held at Wide World of Sports? I would suspect Old Key West or Vero Beach, but... hmmm... maybe sex IS a sport, then...

Is there something you'd like to share about either of those resorts that would be useful to the traveler?

I'm perfectly aware of that little bash. Old Key West is one of the resorts on the Disneyworld property. I was assuming that's what vanettej was talking about, having said s/he was a cast member, although perhaps I was mistaken. I was hoping to find out some dirty little Disney secrets. Dirty little Key West secrets aren't hard to come by.

I love soccer moms! The repressed sexual tension combined with the advantage of some of wisdom of years and comfort and security with themselves makes for some hot MILF's!

Do you want to hear something really scary?

I once stayed in the hotel where the Mary Kay national conference was taking place. Now that's a sight I never want to see again.

Most people here don't seem to know what swinging is about. Its not necessarily about getting a piece of tail anytime you want. It's for people in a commited relationship who would like to go outside the societally imparted rules of marrage and have sex with other singles or couples either together or apart. If you are a single you are NOT a swinger you are simply having sex with swingers. There is another subset of society that are often grouped with swingers and those are polyamourous. Those people can be swingers but are typically looking for openended relationships with multiple people in a semipermenant way with all the bells and whistles of a relationship, including love. Few if any swingers would ever professt to truley love a swinging partner as anything but a close friend.

/I dont care how hot you are, look, or act, getting a 14 person group sex session together takes some real work. ;-)


So, basically, you're saying it's basically about getting a piece of tail any time you want. As I figured.

I can only imagine that a Swingers conclave in Knoxville, TN, is about one step up (if that) from auditions for the Jerry Springer Show.

One employee said the party was advertised on a swinger Web site, and participants -- some of whom engage in partner-swapping and voyeurism -- came from across the United States.

Partner swapping is bad enough, but voyeurism!!?? Oh dear god no!!!

LeopardLady: NOTHING is funnier than a couple of 11 and 12 year old girls rocking out to "Fangirl Shake Your Booty" as being performed by The Great Luke Ski himself...

Holy crap, I never thought I'd see that name on Fark! Luke Ski used to come and perform at our Rocky Horror cast in Toledo, OH (actually Bowling Green) like two or three times a year, back in the day.

Two things.

One, I used to work at an adult bookstore, and we were the city's biggest carrier of four different local swinger mags, both for Ohio and Michigan. So every month on release day, all the swingers would pour in to pick up the latest issue. Honestly, it really was a mixed bag. Some were incredibly hot, some were hideously ugly. Most of them were really cool people though. Unfortunately it tended to be the hideous ones that always looked through the magazine at the counter, then showed me their nauseating nude pics, going "Look! That's US!"

Two, up until last week, I worked at the Toledo Hilton. I would take a swinger's convention over ANY youth sports group. We've had our share of young sports teams, and every single time, there's a problem. The kids are running up and down the halls screaming and giggling at 4am, pulling pranks, stealing the door signs from Room #420, etc. The parents deal with this by getting shiatfaced drunk and not disciplining their children when we inevitably call up to their room and threaten to kick them out.

The only exception is the Tennis kids that always show up on Thanksgiving for their huge tournament. Those kids are scary in the opposite way. They're like goddamn robots.

If there had been a swinger's convention at our hotel, I definitely would have clocked in overtime with some excellent customer "service".

lol, I remember seeing 30 or so 16 and 17 year old brazilian girls without bras on at epcot center one day...
it was light rain and the only thing that kept me from noticing it much was the really nice pair I brought with me...

"We're not prudes by any means," said Rob Young of Greenville, S.C., who said his two daughters, Leah, 13 and Lauren, 11, were asking questions that were difficult to answer.

Not difficult at all. Prudes.

Excusing it by saying "oh, seeing boobies won't hurt them" isn't ok.

The question is where you draw the line. In some countries, women exposing any part of their skin is "offensive". I think if people got nekkid a bit more the world would be a better place.
