The Brooklyn sex parties are for hipsters and elitists. These people swing about as hard as a nerf football. I only go to sex parties with real blue collar people in Bayonne.
 
2014-02-15 11:08:40 PM
I don't go to sex parties.

Not that I'm a prude. Just unnaturally ugly.

If they're not recruiting through Craigslist, I wouldn't trust it.

I'd like to check it out.  I wouldn't join in because that would be gross.

Sparks says, there are people who may identify as gay, straight, bisexual, queer, or even "awesomesexual."

The only one i had ever heard of was in a trailer park in eastern NC and all the people they showed from it, while may have had more sexual partners then i will ever have, are none that i would ever want

Wasn't Rome known for this, right before their downfall?

Which downfall? Because they were known for this for a LOOOOONG time. Even in 2014, I'm sure parts of Rome are still known for this.

Sex parties, nude beaches;resorts, swinging, all seem inciting, then I see the other people involved (the majority of them anyway) that's when I say nooooo I'll pass.

"If you're standing there, leering at people having sex, if you don't have their permission, it's not cool," she says.
"It's ok to be voyeuristic, but ask. Sometimes you don't want someone there just staring at you."


but...isn't that the entire point? to see, and be seen?
 
2014-02-16 01:37:15 AM
heh, I misread house as horse and had an entirely different initial reaction.

Sure, if before their downfall you mean 500 years and two massive shifts in government.

If that were true San Francisco would have tumbled into the sea decades ago.

So?
 
2014-02-16 01:44:00 AM
besides, everyone knows "Sex House" is way better.
 
2014-02-16 01:45:19 AM
150 people is not an orgy. That's a riot.
 
2014-02-16 01:46:59 AM
What, no "Lady Sally" references?  Tsk, tsk.

I was under the impression that you could handle 72 virgins. Can't 3 of you take care of it?

They get catering from the Brookynl Co op.

"When you first walk in, you'll be amazed by just how gorgeous the home is. Hardwood floors, modern-day appliances, black granite countertops, and a beautiful outdoor patio with a hot tub for up to several people."

Wow. That sounds like a palace! Wood floors? Modern day appliances?

/I guess New Yorkers are easily impressed

You get a much better picture of what it's actually like if you imagine ironic tattoos, ironic facial hair, ironic eye wear and read the whole thing in Stefon's voice.

A hot tub that holds "up to several people"?
My mind is blown by such an invention.
 
2014-02-16 02:16:43 AM
So... are these Eyes Wide Shut sex parties or Eating Raoul sex parties?

For more stunning parallels it is essential that you read this amazing book by Hal Lindsey. ;D

No, that was the whole throwing Christians to the lions thing. And even then, not very often.

But Romans were having orgies since before they had an Empire, and maybe even before they had a Republic. It was part of their state religion (ie: Cult of Bacchus).

Now that would be a church service worth going to, Bacchantes striking the ground and causing wine springs to open, wild sex in puddles of free booze...
 
2014-02-16 03:17:43 AM
Anyway, these sort of things rarely seem to allow single men.

Lsherm: My wife and I went to a sex party at the invitation of friends of ours in Thailand (relax, it was for expats) and that was enough to turn us both off of the whole idea.  For eternity.

Sex parties aren't nearly as sexy as they sound in theory, even if there are really attractive people attending.  There's a whole etiquette if you don't want to have sex with other couples (we didn't) and a thousand other unspoken rules that people seem to know but that don't seem to be written down anywhere.  Also, and there's no good way to put this, after two hours or so the smell is overwhelming.  The sex smell is sexy when you're with someone else.  If you're with 100 strangers it's a notch above the elephant house at the zoo.  Nothing but sweat and ass smell.


There do tend to be a series of "rules", but the most important one is "be respectful".  If you've got a question about something, just ask.  At a place like the one in TFA I'm sure people would be more than happy to answer questions.  I think too many people go to a party like this and immediately assume it is crazy kinky sex the entire time.  Just take it slow and ease into it, make a few friends and you'll be having fun before you know it.
