The swingers convention is coming to New Orleans

Posted By on Fri, Jul 1, 2011 at 5:51 PM

New Orleans prides itself on its booming convention business. Just last weekend, the American Library Association brought publishers, writers and other notables — including sex columnist/"It Gets Better" creator Dan Savage and comedian Molly Shannon of Saturday Night Live fame — to the city for its annual conference. Every other week of the year, there seems to be a convention for every medical profession under the sun. But this week, instead of librarians carrying large tote bags or pharmaceutical sales reps wearing lanyards and matching polo shirts, swingers might be the reason you can't find a parking space anywhere downtown.

Right on the heels of the Essence Music Festival, the Naughty in N'awlins "lifestyle and swingers couples convention" arrives July 5 and lasts through July 10. The convention kicks off with a parade down Bourbon Street that culminates in a party at the swingers club Colette. There's also seminars (on topics ranging from couples massage to S&M), a topless pool party, a masquerade ball and plenty other opportunities to make "new friends."

Visit the event website for more details — in case you're either interested in attending or just want to know where to avoid eye contact with festively dressed couples while hitting up the French Quarter with your significant other.
