However swinger clubs are typically permanent places that are specifically established for catering to swingers.
The first sex club of this type exclusively for African American gay men was Black Jack, started in 1986 by Alan Bell. Additionally, most adult dating and swinger social networks often provide listings of sex clubs, resorts and events.
There is no non-profit impartial overarching organization of sex clubs per se, although NASCA International serves as an umbrella organisation for swinging groups in general. Most major cities in North America and western Europe have sex clubs, many in a permanent location, but they often keep a low profile.
Many swinger clubs will have a dozen or more rooms for sexual activity.
The lifestyle clubs are also often decorated in themes with furniture to match.
There is also a very large and growing group of private sex clubs that, to avoid legal problems, do not operate in a specified location.
