One man seemed to be unsatisfied with his own performance, so he moved aside for another man to join his sexual partner, a middle-aged woman, who seemed concerned about her first partner's feelings, but soon was comfortable with her new position.
Before the man left the room, he was stopped by another woman who offered to help him - ahem - improve his performance.
‘Meg' is a 40-year-old member who says she would like to have blindfolded sex with as many men as possible at the same time, while her husband stands aside and takes pictures for private ‘use'.
Swapping men with her is 25-year-old Elinor, who says she will not take more than 10 men at a time. ‘Hanna' and her partner ‘O' have been coming to this club once a month to meet other couples with similar preferences.
The club is open on weekends until 4 in the morning for pairs only, and has a separate club for gay and bisexual women. Members are advised to contact the clubs by email or phone well in advance, giving personal details to the owners who will create a membership card to be shown alongside a personal ID every time members go in.
I asked how their experience as swingers affected their relationship.At this point, I was kindly asked to leave the room if I was not going to participate. I found another club in Stockholm's suburbs, a 10 year old Swingers' club with more than 1,000 members.“It is a club for couples who like to have sex with other couples, while other couples watch,” say the club's owners.The club's door is open three nights a week for couples, singles, straight, gay, bi and transsexuals, who are allowed to have sex on the premises with others who share their preferences.I was told that with the advent of spring, the club is increasing the number of thematic evening programmes to meet demand.
