You need to be more careful with your attributions.  Mark Atwood was the
one who posted about traditional swingers' parties.

Never having been to one... I wouldn't know.  I've heard a lot of stories,
but since they were all from people who disapprove of swinging, I can't
say I completely credit them.  The thing that squicks me about some kinds
of swinging is the partner-swapping and the idea that it has to be done in
couples.  I can imagine too many things that could and would go wrong with
that.  And no one who is as picky as me could ever go to a "key party" and
take pot luck, as it were.

If the rains stop, tears clean the scars of memory away
Everything starts wearing fresh colors
Every sound begins playing a heartfelt melody
Jealousy embellishes a page of the epic
Desire is embraced in a dream..."              -- X-JAPAN
