History and dating clubs

Larger establishments may include the facilities of an ordinary nightclub such as a bar and a dance floor.

The first sex club of this type exclusively for African American gay men was Black Jack, started in 1986 by Alan Bell. Additionally, most adult dating and swinger social networks often provide listings of sex clubs, resorts and events.

There is no non-profit impartial overarching organization of sex clubs per se, although NASCA International serves as an umbrella organisation for swinging groups in general. Most major cities in North America and western Europe have sex clubs, many in a permanent location, but they often keep a low profile.

As a rule, female bisexuality and bicuriosity are common in swinging and tend to be the norm amongst participants; Similarly, the online swinger site Swinger Social Network demonstrates that their female membership approximates a 50% population of bisexual females.

By contrast, male same-sex activity is usually, though not always, unwelcome.

Rooms may be decorated like a tropical oasis to Arabian Nights to caves to rooms with mirrors everywhere.

Most clubs will also have voyeur rooms that have windows where patrons can engage in sex and know that they are being watched by other patrons of the club.

However swinger clubs are typically permanent places that are specifically established for catering to swingers.

One of the biggest differences among clubs is the distinction of "On-Premises" or "Off-Premises" swinger clubs.

On-Premises swingers lifestyle clubs are ones that offers rooms or areas that permit couples to engage in sex either alone or with others.

Off-Premises clubs are ones that allow for couples to meet and often dance or can socialize but have no areas or rooms where any sexual activity can occur.

Some swinger clubs go as far as to have rotating beds in the voyeur rooms to continually change the view for those watching.
