Neighbors Turn their Home Into a Swinger's Club

  1. I'm sorry, I burst out laughing when I read this.

    The people that own the house are not charging admission, the opposing neighbors say there isn't an issue with parking or noise, yet they don't "like what's going on in that house because there are children in the neighborhood."

    Now, people that engage in this isn't my cup of tea, but I am also a huge supporter of consenting adults doing whatever they want as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others.

    What would suprise people, and to me, what SHOULD be illegal...is how many of you know it's perfectly legal to take a minor child to a nudist colony?

    "One of the my neighbors just down the street recently told me that there were six girls in nightgowns running around the property. That is not good quality of life."
    Inside, yes. Outside?

    Angie, I read that too, and I have a feeling that the neighbor was making that up, and I'll tell you why.

    First, how many women wear nightgowns anymore...much less 6. I wear PJ's.
    Second, what would 6 girls be doing outside, by themselves, and running around the house? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of the party?
    Third, a slumber party....it ain't.

    But....if it was true, then yeah, it's a little much.

    I wear nightgowns. And t-shirts and shorts too.

    Are there not more important things people can be doing with their lives than "swinging"? Working in a homeless shelter. Volunteering at the local preschool or hospital or LTC. Spending the evening with your elderly grandparents playing Hearts. Making up gift baskets for poor children this Christmas. Volunteering for the reading hour at a local library. Helping out at a pet shelter. Cleaning up a neighborhood park. Organizing a group or being part of a group of folks who march for some political cause near and dear to your heart.

    I think it is a sad commentary on life in general that people can't find value outside of their own selfish desires.

    A dance pole? Ick. This is like living next to a stripper's bar.

    To each their own, but to me the mere idea of swinging is disgusting. Condoms are not 100% protective against STDs, neither is any other method. Upping "the list" of partners increases the odds of catching the gift that keeps on giving.

    As for children at a nudist colony, nudist colonies are typically not known for being a sexual playground, they're typically people doing the average resort/camping things, minus clothing. Like many things in life, the maturity of the child, and the parents' decision would be a deciding factor.

    You would be surprised to know that this is not a uncommon thing ... I know many people that have private swinger parties and there are clubs and ranches that cater to this as well.... Now to the nudist camp..my ex-husbands family owned one and ran it...yes he was a freak

    Ha, Oh I didn't think it was uncommon, the article just cracked me up that the neighbors are such in an uproar about property values, and now it's all over the State of Florida because they kept complaining about it.

    I'd be more worried about regular old "values" . . . but I can certainly see where this would, in most cases, lower property values for neighbors.

    Why do folks put up with covenants and conditions in order to live in certain housing developments? You can only grow certain colors of flowers, you can't hang a windchime, you can't change the oil in your car in your own driveway . . . . If that is the case, then I would think having a "swinging" club in the neighborhood might just make some financial impact.

    hey Steph...

    Don't forget about the homeowner's assoc (forget what state it was in) that made someone take down a flag pole. The "snap" of the American flag in the wind was NOT allowed. Good grief.

    I agree that a neighborhood is probably not the best place for a swinger's club....take it to the country where there are no neighbors....and no impressionable children. JMO.

    Human beings never cease to amaze me. :spin: The "snap" of the flag . . .. . .. .

    Now about "the country" . . . we already get all the child molesters (my county has the highest rate of paroled child molesters in the state). Please don't send those pole dancers and partner switchers out here too. Send them into the inner city next to the strip clubs . . .
