One night we were sitting on the couch watching a movie and something came a crossed the screen and my husband said he had always wished to experience that. It was a fantasy of his that he had thought would never happen since we are in a happy and faithful monogamous relationship. My comment to him at that point was, “I don’t see how that would be possible but if you could find a way that would be safe, I would be open to exploring the possibility”. So we decided to look into that. That is when we found TVR.
We really didn’t know what to expect. When we got on the website there were a couple of things that concerned us. The photos were of younger and thinner people than us, are we going to be out of place? The dress code, are we going to be out of place? So many questions and we just didn’t know what to expect. We talked about the rules and liability waiver, filled it out and sent it in. What’s the worst that could happen, we get off the couch, take a drive to Portland, and blow a few bucks and gain the knowledge of what happens at a swinger’s club.
The night comes and as I dress I’m so nervous. I don’t really know what to expect or if I’m dressing right and my husband who is more accustom to such things even felt a bit nervous. What really helped some of the nervousness was we talked about going for the whole week before. Communicating boundaries of what was acceptable and what wasn’t. What we came up with was we were just going to observe. See what it was about and what we could learn.
So we park and enter the lobby. We presented ID and having already submitted the waiver, they had it printed out and ready to sign. Once we placed our signature on the waiver the cute lady announced on the walkie something about a “sexy new couple” and I blushed. My husband smiled at the compliment and so it began.
So we were given a tour of the club. Right around the corner was the buffet and it smelled wonderful but I still had butterflies in my stomach so moving on. Next was the giant hot tub which definitely looked inviting. Rooms with beds made with clean sheets and lots of volunteers to help keep things clean and tidy which is important to me. Further down was a bar with a dance floor and DJ. Also stripper poles! ( I have seen them in movies but I have personally never touched one) The tour ended upstairs where there were a couple of pool tables and another bar. We ordered a drink, played some pool and observed.
There was a variety of different types of people. Younger and older, heavier and thinner, all friendly and open to be who they are without being judged. On the ride home we talked about what we saw, how we felt about it, and basically we discussed whether or not we wanted to pursue this any further. At the end of the night we found all are concerns and nervousness to be unwarranted only to be replaced with anticipation of what comes next. Oh boy, what comes next!
