As polyamory is quickly becoming more normalized, the demand for sexy, swinging spaces is at an all-time high. Although there aren’t really any discernible statistics regarding the number of married couples who practice non-monogamy, about 24 percent of OkCupid users report they are interested in group sex.
Likewise, in a survey of 5,000 Match.com users conducted by Dr. Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist, 6 percent of users were found to be married but practicing non-monogamy, while 68 percent of users approved of their partner's non-monogamy. Although the lifestyle may not be for everybody, Dallas is home to many hidden gems where couples and singles alike can make their wildest dreams come true. Whether you’re plain and vanilla, loose and wild or a kinkmaster, there are plenty of opportunities in DFW to explore polyamory.

Club Dallas2616 Swiss Ave., Dallas
Hidden near Deep Ellum, Club Dallas is a men-only health club with several amenities for setting the mood.

As long as the activity taking place involves two (or more) consenting adults, few things are off-limits at Club Dallas. On the off chance that someone tells you to “get a room,” Club Dallas also has private rooms available for rent. To keep things safe, the club has condoms and lubricant available for purchase.
