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. [ 1 ] Other kinds of " sex party " may fare less well with this labelling. Participation in an "orgy" is a common sexual fantasy and group sex targeting such consumers is a subgenre in pornographic films . The term is also used metaphorically in expressions, such as an "orgy of colour" or an "orgy of destruction" to indicate excess, overabundance. The term " orgiastic " does not generally connote group sex and is closer to the classical roots and this metaphorical usage.

Sex clubs also known as swinger clubs or lifestyle clubs , are formal or informal groups that organize sex-related activities or establishments where patrons can engage in sex acts with other patrons. A sex club or swinger club differs from a brothel in that, while sex club patrons typically pay an annual membership and nightly entrance fee, they only have an opportunity to have consensual sex with other willing patrons, and not with sex workers employed by the establishment. [ edit ] Genres A similar type of club is a masturbation club in which members, either single-gender or mixed, masturbate together in public or private rooms. Sexual intercourse is generally prohibited in such clubs. There is also a very large and growing group of private sex clubs across the U.S. and around the world that do not operate in a specified location.

A libertine is one devoid of most moral restraints, which are seen as unnecessary or undesirable, especially one who ignores or even spurns accepted morals and forms of behaviour sanctified by the larger society. Libertines place value on physical pleasures, meaning those experienced through the senses. As a philosophy, libertinism gained new-found adherents in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, particularly in France and Great Britain . Notable among these were John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester , and the Marquis de Sade . "Libertine" is defined today as "a dissolute person; usually a person who is morally unrestrained". [ 1 ] Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand wrote that Joseph Bonaparte "sought only life's pleasures and easy access to libertinism" while on the throne of Naples. [ 2 ] [ edit ] History of the term
