News - Find sex in Paris

If sex is on your mind and you’re feeling experimental, France is undoubtedly the place to go if you’re a swinger. And swinging takes on many different forms and positions. There are more than 400 clubs échangistes in France and don’t assume that a door marked Club Privé in one of Paris’s tonier neighborhoods is reserved for members who want to discuss philosophy. Natives and tourists mix without a language barrier.

If you imagine these clubs are seedy, think again. Some are extremely elegant, and you’ll encounter diplomats, businessmen, women executives and socialites. Don’t be shocked if you bump into members of the French Parliament—that is, if you recognize him or her wearing something other than a suit and tie with a (perhaps) Légion d’Honneur on the jacket’s lapel. Former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was a well-known habitué of Les Chandelles.

Women are expected to appear in tenue sexy. And that certainly doesn't mean: elegant pants. If you’re one of the chosen few (and it’s best to go with a regular), you’ll undoubtedly see women wearing some of the sexiest and most expensive underwear designed anywhere and I’m not referring to Carter’s Spanky pants.

During the fashion shows, the clubs get hot. Don’t get the impression that everyone is participating and exchanging partners. Some people are there simply to watch because they find it erotic and exotic. Other people are quick to say that a night spent in these clubs adds a bit of spice to their marriages.

The majority of Paris’ clubs dispense free condoms and if they don’t, you’re playing with fire. Many women formulate their own personal rules and don’t have sex with anyone other than their ongoing partner. Others may look and feel, but keep within their limits. Voyeurism, after all, is a kind of sex.
