"We want to do everything within our power to enhance the entire evening," Maurice says. He's worked at the club for 12 years, and although club rules forbid employees from participating with patrons, couples sometimes invite Maurice to the back. He always declines, though. "I like my job too much."

The "playrooms" are set off by frosted double doors with a bouncer standing guard. But before anyone can go through them, all clothes must come off. Members are directed into a locker room, where they are assigned a locker and offered a crisp, plush towel. Ladies must remove their high heels; they can damage the furniture.

The backroom is divided into two parts — a couples side and a singles side — with a bar in between, manned by a chipper bartender in a red corset who lines up plastic cups of ice water for overheated participants. Each side has a bay of four vinyl-covered mattresses pushed together and a row of private rooms and curtained alcoves. There are also couches and sex swings throughout the place. The ceiling is mirrored.

Club Hedonism in Pompano Beach can be easy to miss. From the outside, it's just an unmarked black door at the end of a suburban strip mall.

By midnight, hundreds of people are scattered about the backroom, an orgiastic mass of flesh and overlapping bodies. The same music pumping over the dance floor plays in here. In the darkness, faces seem to blur, and names, ages, and occupations all fall away. Bowls of condoms are placed around the rooms. Plenty of people are using them, and plenty of people are not.

At one point, Cee-Lo Green's song "Fuck You" comes on. "I see you driving 'round town with the girl I love, and I'm like, Fuck you!" There are bare asses in every direction. On a mass of beds, six men and eight women are divided into three groups, with members rotating. One man thrusts into a woman from behind as she performs oral sex on another man who is kissing another woman as that woman is straddling a man who looks like he's either in immense pain or staving off an orgasm — or both. "I guess the change in my pocket wasn't enough, I'm like, Fuck you! And fuck her too!" The couches around the bed are filled with naked bodies, most paired off with either the woman on top or bent over, facing the wall. A few couples just hold hands and caress each other as they watch the bedlam. A man and a woman both fondle the breasts of a young blond who is watching a couple vigorously making use of a sex swing. "Although there's pain in my chest, I still wish you the best with a... Fuck you! Oo, oo, ooo."

Around 1 a.m. in the Trapeze locker room, people are in various states of undress, with some ready to play and others all played-out. The giggles and flirtations are drowned out when a woman starts shrieking. A lean brunet in her 20s and her boyfriend, a tall, muscular blond with a square jaw, are both naked, fighting next to their lockers. She's slapping him about the face and neck with both of her hands and screaming.

"She was on you," the woman yells. Her tears smear the glitter on her cheeks. "I saw it."

"No," he says, trying to shield his face from his girlfriend's nails. "She wanted to. It was close, but — "

"You're fucking lying! How could you?! How could you do that?"

She kicks him in the shins. A six-foot-five, 250-pound security guard tries to get between the two of them, but he's also trying not to touch either naked participant more than he has to. A crowd of dozens has gathered around. Blood drips from the boyfriend's nose. Finally she leaves the locker room, still crying.

"What's going on?" a man whispers.

"Her man fucked another woman without a condom," a woman standing nearby says.

"He totally deserves it then," says another woman.

"Eh," shrugs the whispering man. "Things happen."


When things finally wind down at Trapeze, hours of decadence are visible on the floor of the backroom. There are ice cubes and spilled drinks, moist latex and a plethora of bodily fluids. A few couples are still going at it as the cleanup crew — mostly Haitians wearing T-shirts and rubber gloves — begins to pick up the condoms and wipe down the vinyl. When everyone's out, the crew will bring in the wet/dry vacuum. They'll wipe down every surface, wash every sheet, and spray deodorizer. Soon the place will be ready for another night of sybaritic splendor.

Over at Deenie's, the place has quieted by sundown. In the lounge just inside the front door, a man in jean shorts and a T-shirt smokes a cigarette as he sits between two televisions. One TV is playing a porno; the other is playing an old episode of Cops. He's watching Cops.

When things wrap up at Hedonism, Sandy puts her vest back on and announces she and Luis are going home — probably to have sex. She gathers the pieces of the napkin she'd torn earlier and puts them in her purse. She has her arm around her partner, but she turns and flashes her chest to the group before walking out the door.

Club Secret in Kissimmee Florida is definitely worth checking out. 2 dance floors, lounge area, massive playrooms, midnight pool party's, full bar and best of all no reason to drive home. Club Secretalso has an adjoining 135 room hotel so the party can continue!

What I would like to know is if this "lifestyle" is supposed to be so great than why do these people not come out and say who they really are?  Why all the secrecy?  Sorry I don't buy into it.

Club Hedonism is mediocre and tired.  We just stayed at the Seagate 2, at the Lorelei on 501 ORTON AVE.  It's a swinger hotel, swinger resort very close to the beach and all the night clubs.  We really enjoyed the nude sunbathing and nude swimming and we met some very hot couples who enjoyed swining and the lifestyle.  There was a great complimentary barbecue and a sex room, play room on premise.  The best part of our stay though was all the hot swinger couples we met and all the sexy single ladies who loved to have sex.  For women, it was a bisexual, lipstick lesbian paradise. We also enjoy the fact there were no SINGLE MALES!  That made our stay even ten times much better.  The Seagate in Fort Laudrdale is a great swinger, lifestyle vacation and if you have the chance check it out!

Never before has the phrase, "Oh, for cryin' out loud!" been more appropriate.

my favorite part of this article is when the author tries his best to delicately describe a situation in which a woman on returning from the privy having just cleaned cum from her snatch finds her fat naked husband in the mist of what was most likely a drug induced pulmonary embolism, only to then describe this whole old, fat, white, republican, orgy scene (poor haitians cleaning white geezer spooch off of vinyl... gotta be some kinda fuckin' slavery) as a loving and nurturing place where people come together after a crisis. funniest part of the story. digging through trash receptacles full of cum and latex to find wedding bands is also pretty fuckin' funny and sums up the social as well as cultural ethos of south florida.

cheers to you sick motherfuckers. may the tides rise up and sweep you away.

Greetings Mr. Mooney,

I am emailing you today regarding the recent article you wrote on Trapeze. I am the daughter of Maurice, the main chef at Trapeze. When my father informed me that he was going to be interviewed by you, I was delighted at the prospect of reading this article because I knew that the focus would be in part on the quality of the food he prepares for Trapeze. While I can neither comment on the accuracy of your depiction of Trapeze nor your overall experience, I can affirmatively highlight a few unfortunate misstatements you made in the article particularly in your overemphasis of my father’s nationality rather than the quality of his food. In at least two occasions in your article, you described the main chef merely as the “Haitian man”. Rest assured, I have no issue with you identifying him as Haitian because after all we are proud Haitians. However, it saddens me that you chose to accentuate that particular fact over his actual role at Trapeze. Many who have frequented Trapeze can attest to the fact that Maurice is an exceptional chef with over 15 years of experience. Accordingly, any reference to him in your article should have focused more on the quality of his food not merely on his nationality. What relevance does his nationality have to do with his job as a chef? He neither cooks nor specializes in Haitian food. I am certain you would not find it necessary to repeatedly remind the readers of the Chef’s nationality if he were of a different background. Hence, such reiteration provides room for other inferences, which I am sure was not the intent of this article. As a lawyer in training, I believe that we have long past those days where one’s nationality or background can overshadow the product of one’s skills. I will not speculate as to why you chose to highlight my father’s nationality, but a reasonable mind may infer that it was for negative implication. Personally, I would have loved to keep this article as a memory of the first time my father’s name ever mentioned as a Chef, but I regretfully have to defer it for another occasion where my father is not turned into a non-descript caricature.

Now, with respect to the demographic of the Trapeze’s Kitchen and Cleaning employees, you inaccurately dubbed most of them as Haitians. Not True. You will find that Trapeze is a very diverse workplace where the employees are from various racial and ethnic backgrounds: Whites, Hispanics, African Americans, and yes a few Haitians. Again, I am puzzled by the excessive emphasis on “Haitian” and this behooves me to question the underlining message of this article. Sincerely,

Trapeze Management

Thanks so much for covering the lifestyle in this edition of the paper. We are aware some time has passed since the writer visited and just wanted to update that while the condoms on the floor would signal to some that this was one hell of a party, it sounds gross. We have since corrected the problem and invite you to come check out the cleanliness of our back room, if you can take your eyes off of all of the hotness surrounding you that is.

Swinging is a dangerous lifestyle. Sexually transmitted diseases are on the high.

Great depiction of both the fun and the dangers of "the lifestyle." Swinging is like any other part of life. Alot of great people and a lot of annoying assholes too.

@Android Phones I couldn't agree more.  My "ex" tried to recruit me to this garbage a few years ago.  I did not know he was a swinger, but had met many of his creepy friends.  None of them had anything going on for them and they all just seemed to be a bunch of sex addicts.  The fact that people try to normalize this "lifestyle" is sick.  Needless to say I did not stick around..
