Don't worry if you haven't been invited to a private party yet. You still have the rest of your lunch break to get on the guest list for a party that'll make you forget about old Gene Simmons. Here are three venues hosting five parties among them this weekend alone.
- Club Kiss: Held in a decadent, arty Mission playspace by a very experienced team of hosts. Yes: lush electronic beats, condoms aplenty. No: single guys, sorry. Here's where you're most likely to overhear startup gossip in the backroom, or spy a name-brand fetish model on the stripper pole. All guests must be prescreened via email before getting an official invite. Next party is this Saturday, Februrary 23.
- Tangerine's Dream: Swinger events every weekend in San Jose. This Friday, February 22 is their Quarterly Coalition Party. Don't let the stuffy name fool you — it's one of their biggest bashes all year. The estate offers a pretty view of the Valley. Single men allowed with approval, but all prospective guests have to become members before attending. TD runs a more exclusive party for couples and single women on Saturday.
- Interracial Kink: Throws parties in the East Bay geared towards group sex. This Friday is Down and Dirty, and Saturday is a Sexy Lingerie Play Party themed. Call ahead to reserve an invitation and get some light screening. All-night fucking and sucking are promised, but I've never been myself. Their low-tech gangbang matchmaking service sent me to my Back button.
Most sex parties are geared towards couples — no dateless guys allowed — but we've already told you how to find a date who'll be discreet about the deal. Expect to spend about $60 per couple to cover valet parking and other incidentals. Leave your phone with its videocamera in your checked coat. You'll have to make some vivid memories instead.
