I learned to give myself empathy, and to feel respected by others.The norm at camp is to share freely with others what we are thinking and feeling—while always being “at choice.” One way that this transparency is practiced is the ZEGG Forum (not related to Landmark Forum).
The resorts are beautiful and all-inclusive (drinks, too! But — and there is a but — first-timers should be aware of what they're diving into.I consider myself to be very open-minded, sexually adventurous, totally fine with nudity (love it, actually), and fully supportive of pretty much anything going on between consenting adults. Even if it happens to be on public display, as is the case at the resorts, I'm down. On day two, however, as I found myself in a pool-size sex spa full of guests — all completely nude — sandwiched in between one of the most attractive women I'd ever seen in real life (not complaining one bit here) and her down-for-pretty-much-anything boyfriend, it occurred to me that my significant other and I were in way, way over our heads. In fact, one of the questions we were most frequently asked in the five days we spent at both places was "are you two lifestylers?" This is the question couples often pose in order to get a feel for whether another couple is open to swinging.This is a full-on sex resort, with public rooms decorated with round pink and black leather beds dedicated to group sex, massive hot tubs where couples and groups can go at it to their hearts' desires, and where (in my case) attempting to casually rock a bathing suit bottom made me stand out among the sea of bare butts.This is absolutely what many people are looking for in a getaway — and I'm so glad that there's places that exist where couples can really be themselves and where this is celebrated. The first thing I saw was the sex swing that had been drilled into our ceiling while we were gone for barely an hour. Our bathtub was filled with bubbles and roses, our bed completely covered with the petals as well. We suddenly started having second thoughts about inviting our new couple friends along for what we (stupidly, in hindsight) believed to be the kind of silly striptease you see at bachelor parties that last all of 10 minutes. We thought we'd chat and laugh with the husband and wife we'd brought along with us while we watched a sexy performance, sip Champagne, and be dancing at the resort's (actually very fun) disco in no time. It was the erotic preamble to what would've been sex with my boyfriend — guided by a beautiful (and amazingly sweet) woman decked out in black lace and silk.
