In New York, if you want it, you can get it, and that’s certainly true at a swingers club. Whether you’re a regular at sex shops or just beginning to realize all the surprising, dirty and occasionally public ways New Yorkers do it, there’s a private event or secret New York party where you can try something new. It’s time to share the love.

Sex and dating

Caligula

If you and your significant other enjoy knocking boots with a writhing mass of sexy strangers, look no further than this club in Queens. And if you want more information on boots, here’s a fun fact: The actual first name of the Roman emperor commonly called Caligula was Gaius—caligula means "little boots" in Latin, and Caligula picked up this nickname (which he hated) when he accompanied his dad, Germanicus, during his military campaigns in Germany.

Bowery Bliss

icon-location-pin Nolita

These grimy digs on the Lower East Side are a choice haunt for rank-and-file members of the lifestyle. But if you’re single and keen to mingle, it welcomes unattached men and women on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There’s no booze, but there is free soda.

CheckMate

icon-location-pin Midtown East

This upscale, members-only club is on the pricey side (120 bones to get in). Like most swingers’ clubs, it’s strictly BYOB, and the grim lumps of surly bouncers severely enforce its dress code. But if you’ve got the dough, it’s a nicer club than most under the swinger banner, and it’s got a slick dance floor.

Adult Socials

This tristate swing club’s parties draw anywhere from 25 couples to 100 couples and offer a look and personality for every type. Usually held at lofts, hotels and private homes, regular parties include the weekly, off-premise Adult Socials Lounge in Soho, a meet-and-greet for newbie swingers; the monthly on-premise Bi-Bash, for bisexual and bicurious players (even single dudes are welcome); and Freaky Fantasy, for couples specifically seeking interracial hookups.

One Leg Up NYC

Looking for a sexually charged, circuslike smorgasbord? Look no further than OneLegUpNYC. Themes for past parties have included Black Magic, Human Circus, Barbarella and Eyes Wide Shut, with no shortage of entertainers (stilt walkers, jugglers, silk artists, contortionists, etc.). The club offers two types of parties: Eat-Ins for members-only, on-site petting; and Take-Outs, parties that let swingers meet and greet go elsewhere to play. The events draw a mixed—from yuppie professionals to free-spirited artists—but discerning bag. (onelegupnyc.com)

School of Sex

The School of Sex's Behind Closed Doors events start off slow: A one-hour informational session for beginner swingers is followed by an hour of dancing and socializing—then, whoa boy, cover thy virgin eyes! Events are held in various spaces throughout Manhattan, but the biggest parties take place at a 3,000-square-foot midtown loft with a South Beach vibe. The crowd ranges from 21-and-up students to white-collar types, plus a few out-of-towners seeking a quick weekend romp. (schoolofsex.net)

SinSation

This club throws monthly parties at lounges, lofts and private pads around the city. Most SinSation swingers bring along the ol' ball and chain, and many are nine-to-fivers. Events attract between 80 and 200 people, and no single men are allowed. There’s a clubby atmosphere, complete with mood lighting, shot girls, dancers, bartenders and reggae and house music blasting over the speakers. (sinsationnyc.com)
