Wow, what a crazy, exciting, educational, and celebratory filled time John and I had while attending the Naughty in N’awlins Swingers Convention in New Orleans this year! The convention is the brainchild of Bob & Tess Hannaford (also of Couples Cruise) and this year’s celebration marked its 18th year of “getting naughty & changing the world!”
This year’s convention ran from July 29th through August 2nd and was chalk full of educational seminars for the over 900 couples in attendance. Along with speakers like Den Temin, a board certified sexologist and Michael of Michael & Holli from Playboy Radio, John & I had the incredible opportunity to also provide seminars dealing with topics such as Jealousy 101 and Playing Together vs Playing Separately. We were humbled by the fantastic group of couples who attended each day, their eagerness to be educated and informed was evident by the interaction during our question and answer segment of the seminars.

Tess and I love Thailand, the “Land of Smiles”. We have seen such beautiful countryside, the friendliest people and we had a tiger by the tail. Literally.
While on our recent Thailand tour, we took 10 couples on a journey from Bangkok to the upper regions of Chaing Rai. One of our most unique adventures was our trip to Tiger Kingdom. When we first looked into this place, we heard stories about tigers that were drugged and put into cages for tourists to pet. Didn’t sound appealing to us, but I had to see it for myself. (more…)
It’s no secret that I like dressing up. It’s fun and a little silly, but it helps couples break the ice on cruises and at parties. So tune into our Couples Cruise News episode that goes over theme nights and costumes.
My wife and I are swingers and we do not have rules.
A lot of people would read that and say that there is no way to make a relationship work without rules.
Ours does, so let me explain.
1st of all, we prefer the term “guidelines” rather than rules. The word “rules” make me think of someone
trying to control, govern, being strict, to direct. It just seems very one sided to my wife and I. (more…)
In this Couples Cruise News episode, we talk about Jazz Fest in New Orleans and music in general. It is one of the toughest parts as a producer of cruises, conventions and parties to get right. Tune in to see how we approach music for such a wide variety of couples.
I was talking to a friend the other day and I thought I’d share it with you. He spoke about coming to Hedo on a recent trip and he said that he had a hard time finding another couple to party with. Now this was a very nice looking couple and I couldn’t believe that they would have a hard time “hooking up” so I asked him “what was the problem” and he replied “Swinger Algebra”. (more…)
I don’t know how many people saw the premier episode of Neighbors with Benefits on A& E recently,but the show brought up an issue about whether it is O.K. to text someone in the swinging lifestyle other than your primary partner.
In the show, the wife of a young couple is seen sending texts to the husband of another couple as she tried on sexy outfits for an upcoming “swinger party”. The husband started to grow concerned about the texts and sought out the advice of one of the popular couples that puts on these parties. His advice was that the texts were very inappropriate.
