Orgy. In modern usage, an is a sex party where guests freely engage in open and unrestrained sexual activity or group sex . Swingers ' parties do not always conform to this designation due to the fact that at many swinger parties the sexual partners may all know each other or at least have some commonality among economic class, educational attainment or other shared attributes. Some swingers contend that an orgy, as opposed to a sex party , requires some anonymity of sexual partners in complete sexual abandon.

Participation in an "orgy" is a common sexual fantasy and group sex targeting such consumers is a subgenre in pornographic films .
