ShareNation is primarily a hotel takeover party. Their website is http: Their website has their own membership system where members can communicate similar to lifestyle websites such as SLS and SDC.
Upon visiting the site you can create an account which needs to then be approved. A membership can then be purchased. ShareNation only offers couple and single female membership options.
There is an additional fee per event. The takeovers are typically two night events. They offer discounted hotel pricing which requires booking via phone. The group discount code does not work when booking through the website.
If you are going to attend one of these takeovers we highly recommend booking a room. It makes it significantly easier to facilitate playing with another couple when you only have to take a short walk to a hotel room rather than try to work out the logistics of leaving the hotel and traveling elsewhere. This was our first party with ShareNation. We decided to attend both Friday and Saturday night.
The Friday night party was described as a PJ party. ShareNation blocked off an entire floor and upon coming up in the elevator a security guard greeted arriving guests who then were directed to a check-in table. There are still vanilla hotel guests in the hotel on Friday night. There were a good amount of couples that Friday night, around ShareNation had some common suites. They had a social room and then two play rooms.
A DJ was setup in one and another room where there were cups, mixers, and food. Some of the guests kept their rooms open where people could joint them. Saturday night the hotel becomes strictly lifestyle. During the afternoon ShareNation scheduled social activities that acted as ice beakers for guests. Each activity was scheduled for an hour back to back in the ballroom. They had pole dancing classes for women, speed dating for couples, an introduction to the lifestyle session, as well as a separate area setup for those that wanted to have photos taken.
At either 8 p. You are not allowed to bring your own alcohol into the ballroom. There were couples that did pre-parties in their rooms and suites prior to the ballroom opening. Typically couples would connect in the ballroom and then work their way back to their rooms to play. There was also an after party on the main party floor which is the same floor that was taken over for Friday night.
Overall there were a significant amount of couples that attended. We do not know how many exactly, but it must have been at least two hundred. We found attending Friday night as well as attending the scheduled afternoon events very beneficial in meeting couples and making connections rather than just relying on meeting couples for the first time when the ballroom opens. We have a blast attending and will be attending their events in the future. Feel free to ask any specific questions about our experience in the comments below.
Even though we have been slacking in our posts, we have been active in the lifestyle, going to as many parties as we can. The most recent one we went to was a hotel party a couple of weeks ago hosted at the Shelburne Affinia Hotel in Manhattan.
We are a bit hesitant about hotel parties due to the difference in atmosphere compared to house parties. At a house party you typically have several different play areas where you can sneak off to and have fun, but at a hotel party it is all out in the open and easily leads to unwanted attention while you are trying to play with another couple. The average age seemed to be early thirties.
That sold us on the party and off we went. We were the first ones there for the start time of 8 p. It was a beautiful suit with a large common area, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms. It also had a balcony. Maybe the fifth couple that came in, the girl was very attractive. My girlfriend and I looked at each other and knew that she was the one we wanted to give our attention to. She was a thin brunette in her early thirties wearing a short black skirt and white top.
We immediately went over to where they sat themselves and introduced ourselves. As we were flirting and getting to know Kasey and Doug, we were also including other couples in our vicinity in the conversation, more or less creating our own group. Early on in the conversation Kasey indicated that they had one or two soft swap experiences and were not looking for full swap. That was disappointing, but because we created a group of about six couples in our conversation we had other full swap options so we continued interacting until we though it was time to choose a couple and head to the bedrooms.
Kasey responded, "how difficult is it? The cock goes right here" [pointing to her pussy]. I immediately said to her, so does that mean you've just upgraded to being full swap? She paused, looked at her boyfriend, then looked back and me, and said, "I guess so. About ten minutes later we were in one of the bedrooms with my girlfriend taking off Kasey's clothes and the two of them making out.
When we started to get up to head to the bedroom, one of the girls of another couple asked her, "where are you guys going? My girlfriend went down on Kasey and then they switched. After some girl on girl, my girlfriend started sucking Doug's cock and I began going down on Kasey. That is when others started coming onto the bed. There were multiple hands feeling up Kasey. Remember that these two have only had a soft swap experience or two in the past. All the attention on Kasey was making Doug uncomfortable and that was physically manifested by his inability to get hard.
I decided that if I spent any more time going down on Kasey and not having sex, this full swap was going to fall apart. So I put on a condom and started fucking Kasey missionary. Again though, people were all in our space and her poor husband visibly frustrated.
After I came I suggested that Doug switch to fucking Kasey since maybe he would be more comfortable with that and then switch back to my girlfriend.
But even then at that point it was just not happening for the guy. We decided to get dressed and head out to the common area for a water break. I told her that if she feels uncomfortable with people touching her, she needs to say something to them. She isn't my partner so I'm not going to speak on her behalf for her.
A couple we are very friendly with was on the bed with us and the male half was one of the guys touching her and he actually asked her, "is it okay if I touch you? We suggested that the next time we play it can be just the four of us, this way it will be a more intimate experience.
And now for the second big negative of hotel parties: Hotel management came knocking on the door, informed the hosts that there could only be six people in the room and everyone else had to leave. I was happy, I got to have sex with a hot girl. The party was a bit out of control. Overall we would go to another party hosted by this couple, just not at the Shelburne.
It seemed like a wonderful hotel to stay at if you were visiting Manhattan, just one to throw a sex party in. While we have written guides before for single men in the lifestyle, a question from a reader prompted me to give a quick broad breakdown of steps to get started in the lifestyle.
Before I share the guide below, I just wanted to share some personal thoughts on becoming involved in the lifestyle. Swinging is a couples activity. Either it is couples seeking out other couples, couples seeking out single men, or couples seeking out single females. Can single men truly be in the lifestyle? They have no power within it. Now this is different from the poly play party scene, which is more of a free love type of atmosphere and is not couple centric.
But focusing just on the swinging lifestyle scene, if I woke up single tomorrow, I would not get involved as a single guy. Is that really why you want to become part of the lifestyle? To sleep with older women, or is the fantasy to sleep with young, year olds?
You are better off learning how to approach women, both during regular daylight hours and at night venues and you will enjoy a much greater quality and quantity of sexual partners.
Now obviously there are exceptions. If you are very attractive and in phenomenal shape, you are likely to garner the attention of much more desirable couples and if you also fall into the BBC fantasy you may enjoy lots of desirable experiences. If you are reading this and thinking, what does this guy know, I know what I want, give me the steps, fine, here they are: Make sure it is fully filled out and you have clear flattering photos of yourself.
Message couples that indicate they have a desire to meet single men, and 4. Avoid clubs on Friday night. They are a waste and will cost a single male to a pop just to get in. Secondary to the above, Date actively and screen for girls interested in being open sexually and if so, attend lifestyle parties with that girl.
