FAQ's

What is the age range?

Roughly, the age range is up tp 60, with a predominance in the 30+ age group. Age is unimportant in our group: open-mindedness, a desire to have fun and honesty play far more important roles.

What are your hours of operation?

They vary from party to party and day to day. Check our calendar for specific details.

Is there any cover for this party?

Yes. There is a charge to cover our expenses. Specific contributions vary by party and are listed on the information sheet for that event. We take cash only at the door.

Do I need to bring anything to the party to be admitted?

You need only bring yourselves and a healthy attitude about connecting with others. You also want to "dress the part". Each party lists its' own dress code and that is the requirement for admission. You will also need to be able to prove how old you are if we have any doubts.

Depending on which party it is, you may want to bring your own toys.

Can I bring alcohol ?

Not all of our events allow alcohol or are BYOB. Please check the party descriptions for the individual rules governing each event. If it is a party where you can and decide to, we ask that you drink responsibly. Anyone appearing intoxicated (or mildly approaching that condition) will be asked to leave with no refund.

Do you serve non-alcoholic beverages?

There are soda and water available at all our events, sometimes complementary and sometimes for a fee. See each party description for details.

If we are bringing drinks that need to stay cool (to an event that permits it), do we have to bring it in a cooler and should it be labeled?

You don't need a cooler and we will take care of the labeling of the bottles so they don't get confused with other people's drinks.

Where are you located?

We host different events, currently in Manhattan. Exact addresses for each event are listed in the party descriptions.

Do I have to DO anything if I come ?

NO. You don't. If you are new, unsure and/or just want to see what a party of this sort can be like, we welcome you to come and observe. You can jump in if and when you are ready to do so. There are monitors at all our events that are happy to answer your questions.

What is the process for bringing a guest to the party?

The guest must be registered with us so that they can be added to the door list.

What is your definition of a 'couple'?

The term "couple" does NOT have to mean married. There are many different types of relationships in the lifestyle. We strongly suggest that couples discuss what is and is not acceptable for you and your relationship BEFORE you come to the party. Many couples agree to not do anything on their first visit, just come and see what it is all about.

Are there any age limitations at your parties?

You must be at least 21 years of age for any event that permits alcohol. Events where there is no alcohol allow people as young as 18. We have no upper age limit. We believe that age is a state of mind and that people can start this journey at any point in their lives.

Can we bring toys to the parties?

Yes. We encourage everyone to bring their own toys.

Who do we talk to if we have questions?
