As a single male, I understand the high fees. I prefer clubs that charge the same to a couple as to a single male (not half the price). Single serious males in the lifestyle are rare. Too many of them go and think they can grope women. I am not like that. I prefer clubs that limit the number of single males allowed into a lifestyle event, too many single guys at one event can ruin some couples opinion of single males, we want to be included in all events if we behave. I agree with Eros and their policy to search out singles who are serious, thanks! Someday I will make it there.

PlaycoupleOH, our previous post mentions several, completely different ideas/concepts, which I will attempt to clarify for you.

1) The inflated fee we charge for single males IS a deterrent, however your interpretation of its application along with our other policies is incorrect. The inflated fee is to deter the "casual" single male swingers, not the SERIOUS single male swingers. That is it's only function (aside from profit making).

2) Limiting attendance is NOT a deterrence for single males; it's a function of party logistics. My point in mentioning both of these facts in our previous post was to point out that the possibility of having a disproportionate number of males to couples/females is very unlikely.

3) On the nights where that party fee is the same for single males and couples, we have a policy that single males may attend only if they are escorted by a couple. This policy is based on the opinion that couples that bring a single male as a guest would only bring a serious single male swinger. As a result, an inflated fee would not be necessary.

4) In essence, our goal in having single male policies is to allow only SERIOUS single males swingers to attend our parties. While we're aware of other methods of doing this, (and have used some of them), we feel the above-mentioned methods work best for our guests and us right now.

4) If you want to base your opinion of anyone "price gouging" supported on the fact of them charging a higher fee alone, then we concede to those opinions. However we feel, along with many other successful business owners that the laws of supply and demand dictate the pricing of any service and/or product.

Thank you for the reply and take care.

Something seems odd. It was mentioned that the high cost of admission along with limited numbers allowed for single males deters a number of single men entering the party. After that, it was mentioned that there is a day of the week where single men & couples are assessed the same fee...BUT single men admittance numbers are limited. OK... The second example invalidates the first example as a proven deterance of the inflow of single males. The common single male deterence between the two variations is the limit on admission numbers. So, the only noticeable difference in the 2 methods of proven single male admission deterence is *money*. If you can deter single male attendance by limiting the numbers allowed, then why do you need to charge a fee, along with limiting them anyway? I am all for limited amounts of single males at a party, BUT it is wrong to assess them an outrageous fee, when the reason behind the fee is not supported, since the proven deterence is to limit the admission numbers. Personally, I don't care, since I'm not subject to the fees, but it is very unfair, unjust and unsupported to charge a fee without providing a necessity to do so. Since the reason for the fee is deterence, then the amount of the fee could be compared to price gouging, and for the sole benefit of the "event promoter's profits"

Thank you for the reply. We can understand your frustration in having to pay a higher fee to attend a swingers party. However, what you've missed is that swinging generally refers to couples, not singles. The major problem with a number of single men "swingers" is that they are under the impression that the women swingers are sluts and will "do" anyone. This is why you see so many "single" males surrounding the swinger communities. The other issue is the cheating husbands posing as single males. Again, you see so many of these for the above mentioned reason.

In response to your issue, the reason we charge an inflated price for "single" men to attend our parties is for the very reason you stated above. If we didn't, then there would be a disproportionate ratio of men to women. This way we DON'T have 20 guys showing up thinking they've hit the "motherload". We have a small number of SERIOUS single men swingers. Additionally, if your read our site in it's entirety, this inflated fee only applies to our Thursday night parties. Our weekend party fees are the same for single males as they are for couples. However we do limit the number of single males that can attend our parties, regardless of how much we charge them.

As an aside, you would probably fair much better in your search for couples by placing a photo of yourself in your profile. "Hiding" yourself as a "single" male sends up a red flag to most couples indicating that you probably are a cheating husband. Like we said to you in our response to your email message yesterday, we don't just "hook up" with anyone, we like to get to know people better before we jump in the sack with them. Please keep this in mind for the future when your contacting couples to meet.

Thanks again for your reply and take care.

Thanks NJ for the note. We try to keep things in perspective when dealing with others. It can be difficult to do at times, especially when dealing with angry or upset people...at times they can become quite irrational. The sad part about this is that this person emailed us a few days earlier looking to meet. It's quite obvious he had/has no intention of meeting us or any others for that matter now. It's amazing how much you can learn about someone from his or her online behavior. Thanks again. G&J
