Many clubs, websites, publications, travel agencies, resorts, and events catering to the lifestyle promote each other to their mutual financial benefit but also with the altruistic intent of encouraging the dissemination of accurate information about the swinging lifestyle.
The lifestyle clubs are also often decorated in themes with furniture to match.
The easiest and simplest way to know the difference between swinger clubs and socials, groups or Meet-n-Greets is that swinger clubs are usually a brick and mortar physical locations where you meet other swingers.
Socials, groups, and Meet-and-Greets may often meet in the same location but it is often either a residence or some space that they have secured to meet.
Larger establishments may include the facilities of an ordinary nightclub such as a bar and a dance floor.
Each club sets the rules for activities which take place at club organised events.
