Warning! For mature readers only! The Swing Lifestyle!
By Ma. Isabel Lopez
Inside, it’s funny, but all the male staff -from bartenders, to waiters, and busboys were naked while on the job.
I missed my column. But after my recent scandalous blogs – on Guvano Nudist Beach, the Amsterdam Red Light district, the Porn Studio Tour etc., I’m at a loss for outrageous stories. And there’s always pressure to outdo my last article!
What’s left to experience “when in roam?”
Unstoppable me, but after brainstorming with an award-winning female director- she discussed that the swingers club is one story she hopes to film. So, in my curiosity and guts in trying something new, I played Agent 007 (incognito) in the ONLY Licensed Swingers Club in San Diego, Ca. called Thads!
Couples, single ladies, and single men are invited to attend their parties every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but on Saturday (You have to be invited to be in the guest list! And you can only get an invitation over the phone. If you have general questions send them an email).
Incognito, for fear that a Filipino bartender/waiter might spot me, I donned my lace lingerie and mask! Why lingerie? The DRESS CODE: Men must be completely nude. Women can wear lingerie or something revealing and sexy. No street clothes inside ladies. This has been the format and is one of the attractions to the club.
My boyfriend and I arrived in a quiet area of San Diego. Thads is a private house. The doorman (not naked) approached us checking out IDs.
We were escorted inside and greeted by the manager- still clothed. He gave us keys to the locker, and towels; and there’s a pool! After making sure no Pinoys are around, I removed my mask! No phones allowed to keep and protect the identities of the swingers!
The staff was just comfortable in their own skin. How I wished my gay friends were with me. It’s going to be a riot! It’s a full party naked atmosphere with a mix of couples, women and single men who seemed friendly, and open.
There was a woman pole dancing in the dance floor. I wondered if she was hired by management to add atmosphere to the place. Next to the pole, is a pool table where two couples were playing. The men, naked of course, uninhibited, concentrating on the game.
The club was an on-premise facility with plenty of private rooms. In the garden, there was a heated pool and jacuzzi with heaters all over. Couples were just having drinks in a typical pool party except that men are naked. And these Americans, so used to the cold! I was there in the fall and it was too cold for me in my lingerie so my boyfriend and I decided to stay indoors and explore the house adorned with antiques.
The constant porn video playing on every monitor set, provided the mood for single guys to touch himself, no matter who is watching.
There is one area known as “window room”- for exhibitionists who loves being watched while having sex or taking a shower!
I have yet to see attractive sexy couples like one would imagine when you see the swingers website. This night we weren’t so lucky!
As voyeurs, my boyfriend and I proceeded to the “couples only ” room upstairs.
There’s a security in that door with a warning sign- couples only! No single guys are allowed in this area period. Single women are allowed because ladies rule, but 3-somes with a single man cannot go up there. If you break this rule you will be asked to leave. If you’re a single guy and want to see the action, then find a single female to take up with you.
There were smaller cubicles, private rooms and a huge play area of 4 King-sized beds joined together. As we were there early, we only saw two couples.
The experience left me wondering. Where were the beautiful people? What’s in the minds of their regulars? Is there one here in my beloved country?
Thads offered a relaxed atmosphere where men and women socialized in a safe secure place. Owned by Thad Poppell, the man is considered as a true patriot as he was fighting for real freedom, the kind of freedom that Americans are afraid of – sexual freedom. It’s no surprise, his business has flourished for over 30 years!
