Last night at our usual hangout for Espresso Martinis…
Lucy: So, who has any plans for the weekend, other than all of us bar-crawling around the city?
John: City, you said?  Which city?
Lucy: Our city, here Zug.
John: You call this a city?
Lucy: Yes, a city. What should I call it? A fisherman village?
John: At best…  Or just a town.
Cate: Anyway, guys, back to the burning question.  Who has any plans for the weekend?  Any ideas?  Me, I got nothing.
Giovanna: Me neither.  Just the usual.
Lucy: Same here.  The usual. Plus one of those Swinger Parties invitation.  Which is also somewhat of a usual.
John: Hold on.  A Swinger Party invitation?  Is this for Swing dancers?  Or for…?
Lucy: For.
Cate: For real?
Lucy: Yes.  Why are you so astonished?  Tell me that you didn’t know that we live in Swingersville!
Cate: I knew it as the Crypto Valley mainly.
John: I cannot believe what I am hearing.  Lucy, from all people, you have been invited to such a party!
Lucy: What’s wrong with me?!?!?!
John: Nothing.  It is just that you are such a lady.  Plus you have a fiancé!
Lucy: Exactly.  This is the profile of people invited.  It is not for everybody.  It is a high society kind-of sport.  And you are most likely to be invited if you are in a couple.
John: Jesus!
Lucy: Jesus is not involved, so leave Him out of it.  Oh come on, all of you.  Do not play the naïve virgins.  You have all been invited by a neighbor or a work colleague.

Lucy started staring at each one of us.  She would not stop until she got an answer.  Eventually, she got a shy yes, a proud yes, a questionable yes and a nod.  Nevertheless, she got only forced 4 responses, but nothing from John.

shocked

Lucy: What about you, John?  Have you ever been invited to a Swinger Party?
John: NO!
Lucy: Relax.  Why so upset?
John: Nobody ever invited me!!!
Cate: Like never?
Giovanna: Not even once?
John: Nothing. Never. Nobody.
Lucy: Oh dear, you are still young, it will happen.  It does not mean anything.  You are a nice person too.

Everybody rushed to clarify that, despite the numerous invites, nobody has been to one.

Lucy: Yeah, right.  As if…  Never mind I will not insist.  And I will claim that I have not been either.  Happy?
Cate: Not sure if this is a happiness boost, going or not.
Lucy: I will tell you though that my friend Dylan got a job at Swinger Party.
John: As what?  What sort of professions do they need at Swinger parties?  They hired him to do be what?
Lucy: A Financial Controller.
Cate: To control the finances of the Swinger Parties?
Lucy: He got a contact for a job interview from party participant who was working in a big Pharma company.  And he eventually got the position.  He is very happy there.  I am telling you Swinger Parties are great for networking.  My other friend, Jessy, met her husband at a Swinger party.  And my neighbor told me in the elevator the other day, that she found a beautiful Georgian Yew Wood bookcase at a Swinger Party that she has now in her living room.  I saw it.  Honestly, it is in perfect condition.  And she got a great deal for it.
John: What did she have to do to get it?
Lucy: The usual I guess.
John: This is all very confusing to me.  Are these hunky punky parties or job fairs and furniture bazaars?
Lucy: Apparently these are social events that people chat, relax and eventually get down to business.  So it is during the warm up that all these deals take place.  Open your mind, John.
John: I refuse.
Cate: I am thinking of changing jobs too.
Giovanna: And I need a red shoe cabinet, but I didn’t find anything in Ikea.
John: Well, ladies, you know what to do.  Next time you get an invite…
Lucy: Check also if you get any recommendations for a cleaning lady.  Mine is moving back to Brazil…

Have you ever been invited to a Swinger party? Here or there...

THE USEFUL STUFF ABOUT SWINGER PARTIES

I am so not promoting any specific activities.  Not this one, not anything else.  However, I am not judging either.  Whatever makes people happy, as long as they do not make other people unhappy.  Still I wanted to present that aspect of Zug too.  Swinger parties are here and real and who cares.

Of course I will not provide any telephone numbers nor any websites.  But I did the research indeed.  And if you google Zug Swinger Parties, you will be amazed how many ads you will find on dedicated sites or more generic ones, that have Personal Ads next to selling cars and furniture.  Ads that read like:
