Sex Parties | Sex Parties | New York City | NYC | Event Published November 16, 2005 Purely out of a selfless desire to get you downstairs, we've spent the last few months extensively investigating the underground sex party scene. After attending enough parties filled with sketchy 50-year-old swingers and underserviced Long Island housewives in Pennsylvania Hotel suites, we finally came upon a scene worth taking a look at. The organization is called "One Leg Up" and it offers three different levels of parties with increasing levels of intensity: the "side-dish" (for anyone) the "take-out" (couples and single women only) and the "eat-in" (an exclusive event for pre-screened couples and single women only). Our advice: Go straight for the top.The journey begins with an elaborate screening process. Once accepted, you can purchase tickets for the event. Once you arrive and provide the correct password, you change into a mandatory costume that complements the occasion's theme.

How to Plan an Awesome, Last-Minute Vacation on the Cheap - StumbleUpon I lived in Colorado for most of my life, so when I moved to Southern California when I was 14 and my dad bought my whole family annual passes to Disney, it was the greatest thing in the world. I've purchased an annual pass every year since (been here 7 years). I love that place to death I watched all the Walt Disney shows on TV when I was a kid. I got to go there for the first time when I was in my early 30s and it was absolutely nothing like what I had imagined. I've been there several times since (we live in the Los Angeles area now). Sadly, though, unless one of us gets in free we really can't afford to go there any more.

A Year in the Life of a Full-Time Traveler You are here: Home / Blog / A Year in the Life of a Full-Time Traveler All my life, I’ve dreamed of traveling the world. And in 2011, I achieved what I once thought was impossible without winning the lottery: I became a full-time traveler. And it wasn’t how I pictured. So I may not be able to jet anywhere I want at a moment’s notice. Here is what a year in the life of a full-time traveler looks like! January: Thailand, Laos, Vietnam I rang in 2011 on Khao San Road in Bangkok. There was a two-day interlude in overrated Luang Prabang, and then I entered Vietnam (not without almost getting refused to the border). After recovering, I got to know Hanoi better — drinking snake blood was one way — and then experienced Halong Bay on the greatest party cruise of all time! February: Vietnam, Cambodia After returning to Hanoi, I hopped on an overnight bus to the imperial capital of Hue. Since Dave and Mike only had four weeks to work through Vietnam, we moved quickly. April: Indonesia, Thailand, UK
