We've heard the words 'sex club' uttered in romance novels. We've seen a few seedy portrayals in TV shows. We've imagined what it would be like to walk into a fantasy sex club.
But what actually happens at a real life sex club?
What is cuckolding? Sexologist Chantelle Otten explains. Post continues after video.
To answer this question (and a few others we know you've definitely googled), we turned to Mamamia's favourite sexologist, Chantelle Otten.
So, without further ado, let's chat all things sex clubs...
Who can go to a sex club?
There should be no restrictions on who can physically go to a sex club, but each establishment may have different house rules. Lots of sex clubs also run themed nights, so you may be required to fit a theme to attend - e.g. be in a couple who are interested in swinging, or for an all-female sex club night, only women will be let in.
However, most of this information can usually be found on the club's website, or at the very least, it will be made known to you by security on the door!
How much does it cost to go to a sex club?
This is a bit like asking how much it costs to get into a nightclub, because there's a real range. However, we've hunted down some IRL prices so you can get a sense of what kind of financial commitment you'd be making to go to a sex club.
Some sex clubs operate on a membership basis, so you pay to sign up for a fixed period of time - like a month or a year. This would usually start at $100 and go up from there, depending on the fanciness of the club.
On-the-door rates for casual attendees vary a fair bit, but the minimum you would usually find is around $40 for entry. However, quite a lot of sex clubs demand an entry fee for men attending and let women walk in for free.
