As liberty and freedom sweep the world we obviously get an increase in libertine as well as liberty behaviour. And quite right too, all is indeed about that freedom of consenting adults to do as they wish. This applies to consenting economic activity just as much as to consensual ugly bumping. Both sorts of freedom do run into the same problem though, a certain inequality between supply and demand. There are always more consumers than there are producers over on our economic side and we might say, with a little squint at things, the same about the libertines:

It made no mention of where it found such figures but an Ifop poll in 2014 suggested that 11 per cent of French men had frequented a swingers’ club.

Note that it doesn’t say that 11% of French women have so frequented. The usual truth about such things being, always, more men than women. Over the population obviously things even out in terms of average shags etc. But when we drill down (fnarr, fnarr) into the numbers we tend to find some small number of women with vast numbers of sexual contacts making up for the reticence of les soeurs. Means, modes and medians diverge much more for women than for men.

The camp site allows a maximum of 15 per cent single men who receive a “life ban” if they receive any complaints.

Always more men than women.

Still, for only £2 million you can enter this fabled world:

A campsite in rural France dubbed the “world’s first 100 per cent swingers’ camping ground” is up for sale for €2 million with owners insisting it is doing a roaring trade in a country where the practice is said to be booming.

Camping Libertin la Roseraie, or the Rose Garden Swingers’ Campsite, is located just outside the spa town of Vichy, central France, near the village of Brugheas.

The estate agent’s advert reads: “First 100 per cent libertine campsite in the world for sale. Incredible opportunity with over 20 million libertines identified in northern Europe and 6.5 million in France.”

What’s really on offer here is free sex for life to the owner. Go on, think about it, the owner of a swingers’ campsite is indeed going to get laid whenever. Is that worth £2 million of anyones’ money?

The site boasts customers from all over Europe, including Britain, Belgium, Germany, as well as Australians and Americans. But the biggest proportion of guests – around 40 per cent – are Dutch.

Ah, £2 million for sex with the Dutch? Hmmm….

Twatting on Tim

Talking of fucking about with unprotected sex reminds me of: We have another NHS crisis. It will cost lives, unnecessarily. It will cause untold long term harm as staff give up, voluntarily or otherwise, under the pressure brought to bear on them. And nothing about this crisis is made up: this is the real thing, resulting from real demand, and no edict from Westminster will solve that. I am not claiming medical expertise. Nor am I suggesting that I can solve all the problems of the NHS overnight. But I do know that the NHS need not suffer a cash… Read more »

Ah! The serial twatter adequately defined. From a quick scan of tedious turgidity one word stands out. Anyone who uses Chomsky to support his argument on anything but his work on language is obviously batshit crazy.

Reportedly, although there is indeed a vast surplus of single men aspire to participate in swinging, when it comes down to couples getting down & actually doing it, it’s the women are the keenest participants.
Discuss?

I don’t think so. Women may be “keen” as in talking about it the most, but there is an obvious species-preservation model under which men are promiscuous and women are monogamous. Many women dragged along hope to fit in under this orthodoxy they didn’t choose, and are confident or hopeful that they will leave with the one what brung ’em.

Based on the people who buy money-losing short-season ballclubs because they have money and want to be The Owner, there must be thousands of Americans with $2.6 million sloshing around who would pay for this instant identity.

Curiously enough, Spike, swinging doesn’t seem to be about reproductive strategies. More about pleasure seeking strategies. And regrettably, when the male has had his pleasure he tends to be done for a while. Whilst the female can go on for another & another & another…

Agree that the campers are not thinking about improving the gene pool, disagree with your implication that hump-all-day is the likely fare. I do think that visiting the camp (that trying out other partners) would tend to be the man’s idea and the woman would come along for the ride (Fnarr).

The NHS is cheap because it is shit. Wait for hours to be seen at A&E, wait days to see a doctor, wait months to see a specialist. That doesn’t just happen because it’s underfunded it also happens because that is how a service works when run by gov. The whole system is designed for the benefit of the staff and not the patients. No private employers means shit staff continue to be employed and the good ones leave because they are undervalued. More than that, why would I give a toss who pays my doctor as long as the… Read more »

Let’s face it, the nanny state, not least the nanny state doctors who lecture us on our drinking, eating and unprotected sex are a pain in the butt. However, I can understand their frustration. Half of the population (the main recipients of NHS largesse) don’t pay income tax, nor much of anything come to that. And while 50% do pay income tax, much of the contributions come from higher earners, such as doctors. Watching your money being pissed away on a day to day to day basis must really frustrate the medical fraternity.
