Every year since 2012, we at Life on the Swingset: The Podcast host a full resort takeover of the greatest place on Earth: Desire Resort – Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico. This all inclusive resort boasts a beautiful beach, pool, and hot tub, four excellent restaurants, three full bars, and, most importantly, a place to be yourself.
Since every room at the resort is booked by our group, we are able to fully bend and shape the trip to be the most inclusive and spectacularly geeky trip that Desire sees all year.
On this trip, we curate theme nights, evening entertainment, music, activities, workshops, and more, and strive to bring together straight, bi, pansexual, and gay swingers, polyamorists, nudists, quads, triads, couples, exhibitionists, BDSMers, and those just curious and looking to explore.
We believe that everyone has something new, something exciting that they'd love to try, and we want to give the tools, education, space, and encouragement to do just that at The Swingset Takes Desire.
We host workshops on non-monogamy, anal play, flogging, and more. We are the first group to erect a full BDSM Dungeon for a night in the disco, complete with St Andrews Crosses, flogging benches, and a suspension station, along with workshops to unleash your inner dom or sub. Every year sees play parties, gang bangs, and orgies both hosted and pop-up, themed costume nights, live podcast recordings, karaoke, wine socials, cocktails, prizes and giveaways, foam parties, and just relaxing by the pool, beach, or in the hot tub.
It's all there for your exploratory delight, a sexy menu just waiting for you to participate as much or as little as you’re comfortable doing. There is no one way to do Desire, and we’d never presume to suggest which way is the perfect one for you.
The Swingset Takes Desire is a place to let go and be yourself, free from the confines of the boring part of the world, where we can embrace the fact that our lives truly aren't like other people's. Join us in the spirit of inclusivity, exploration, and glorious hedonism! You'll be glad you came.
Desire is an intimately sized resort, and the number of rooms available are limited and sell out fast. If you're interested in coming to paradise with us, it’s a great idea to fill out our booking request form to the right NOW!
