Here is something if you and your long term partner should do… have a party and talk about “Have you Ever….”
The best things in life are free. That said, if you slap an exorbitant price tag on anything, it automatically becomes more alluring — and that’s especially true when it comes to the world’s most expensive, exclusive sex parties.
In the past, sex parties had a seedy reputation. They traditionally evoked images of 1970s-style key swap parties that attracted a less-than-upscale clientele. (Think guys with hairy backs and gold chain necklaces.) But in recent years, that’s changed quite a bit. Many sex parties are elite affairs where entry can cost upwards of your annual salary. Many of them are also super woman-friendly (in most cases, guys need a female plus-one to gain entry).
In exchange for these golden tickets, you get entry to a glamorous, underground world of sex, where you’re rubbing elbows (not to mention other bits) with VIPs and wealthy partiers. Here are just a few of them.
Since 2013, Snctm has been a playground for the rich and famous. And by “rich and famous,” we mean really rich and famous: annual membership for this private sex society will set you back a cool $75,000, which guarantees attendance to all parties. Women are required to be dressed in either elegant evening wear or lingerie, while men must don a tux. Attendees are also required to wear masks, Eyes Wide Shut-style, and according to a 2016 Esquire profile, members include international models, New York City real estate moguls, and Moscow billionaires.
Fortunately for those who can’t afford to pay the $75K entrance fee, there are plenty of lower-level options. Single men pay $1,850 per party, or $1,500 if they come with a female partner. (Women don’t have to pay a thing, though both men and women do have to pass a strict application process, including submitting full-body photos.) But just because it’s a sex party does not necessarily mean that anything goes at Snctm: the club puts a premium on consent and mutual respect. In fact, earlier this year, a longtime, high-profile member of Snctm was stripped of his membership and publicly exposed for lewd and inappropriate behavior. A $75,000 price tag comes with significant responsibility.
2) Killing Kittens.
If you thought sex parties exclusively stemmed from the recesses of the male mind, you would be dead wrong. Killing Kittens is one of the only woman-created and designed sex parties, and it also happens to be one of the world’s most exclusive. (Much like Snctm, Killing Kittens also puts a premium on consent: in fact, men at the event aren’t allowed to approach women for sex.)
Founded in 2005 by Emma Sayle, Killing Kittens was launched as a sexual play space for young, financially solvent single women and couples. The parties began in London, but today the community boasts more than 100,000 members worldwide, with private events regularly held in New York penthouses or on luxury yachts sailing the Caribbean. The price of entry is around $250 per couple (airfare to exotic locales not included).
3) Les Chandelles.
Paris might be the City of Love, but it’s also the city of some seriously expensive sex. While most tourists are taking selfies in front of the Louvre and Place de l’Opera, politicians, VIPs, and celebrities are reportedly having sex behind closed doors at a Les Chandelles event. The parties take place at a discreet location in the exclusive First Arrondissement. They’re lavish, Bacchanalian affairs complete with gourmet cuisine, top-shelf liquor, socializing, and, of course, sex.
But what sets Les Chandelles apart from other swanky sex soirées is the food: the menu includes steak tartar, caviar, and bream and mango ceviche. among other more substantial dishes. An evening (or brunch, if that’s what you’re into) at Les Chandelles is no cheap affair: entry fees start at about $373, and dinner is $323 per person. Zut alors.
