My first experience at this event was lovely; my initial nervousness went away as the night processed. The patrons and people in charge of the event were equally warm and receptive to me. I hope to attend more of them and connect with interesting individuals. I will definitely inform my friends about this.
I went to my first SWANITC bi play party last month and it was a fun experience, everyone made me feel calm, I wasn't pressured into anything and could relax around the others. For my first group experience, it was a success. Hopefully I'll be able to go to more events in the future. The only issue I had was the parking situation, so I suggest taking the metro! Other than that I recommend attending. Oh also, the people in charge were organized and well put together.
We heard about this event from friends of ours (another couple). We were hesitant...well I should say, I was. My wife was more excited than nervous. Even though I always considered myself a closeted bisexual I rarely engaged. From time we send our initial form in we found the staff to be very professional. We're cleared and registered within a few hours. On the day of the event, we received both a text and email with the location info, which we thought was very exciting & sexy (very guerilla-style). When we showed up to a very stately house in the Shaw, NW area of DC, we were greeted by a unbelievingly sexy hosts named Silky. She was very nice, professional and accommodating with our questions. She escorted us to the kitchen/bar area where she introduced us to the gorgeous bartender Nikki. Nikki introduced us to the group that was chatting around the bar area. After a drink and a little conversation, we were at ease. During the cocktail hour (8-10pm) we all got to know each other with several ice-breaker games. By the time 10 PM arrived (the time the play area opens) we are ready to go. We went upstairs to the play area to check things out and never left the area. My wife was a wild woman and I loved every bit of it! We were very surprised at how respectful the gentlemen were. We've been to swinger events before and stopped going because of the over aggressive single men. The proprietor of SWANITC Parties, Ward, does not carry himself with an air of arrogance like many alt. social club owners do. As a matter of fact we didn't know he was who he was until we were getting dressed to leave and he asked if we enjoyed ourselves. My wife told him she was waiting to play with him all night, then he told us he needed to make sure things were running smoothly and introduced himself. We've been to several play parties and this was one of the most well produced events we've been do. We had an amazing time. The staff and other patrons were fun, sexy and most of all genuinely great people. We travel often but if and when an event lands on a time we are back in town, we will definitely be there!!!
