So New Years didn’t work out…
I had to give it another shot. And this time, no putting things off until late in the night.
What a great idea 🙂
I set a start time of 7:30 and a cutoff doors closed time of 9:00. The first guest arrived at 7:31. The last at 8:56. Given people usually show up for parties a couple of hours late, this was miraculous and really worked well. That way, we were all together at the same time to do introductions and break the ice together.
Which was well served by a game of Never Have I Ever…Which, incidentally, I had never played. Naturally, the topics stayed all sexual. But we lost steam after going around the group twice.
It was a great group, small, but mixed. Veteran swingers, kinksters, poly folks, people with more party experience, people with no party experience. This variety kept everyone on their toes to differing experience levels and interests. But also made for awesome interaction and discussion!
I was most delighted that while there was no obligation to stay for play time, everyone chose to. Not only that, everyone got naked and did some sort of play at one point or many!
A girlfriend was the first one naked, demoing some toys and squirting all over the place. It was a great way to get everyone into the idea that yes, it is okay, nobody is going to judge you no matter what you decide to do.
My other girlfriend found a friend and spent the next FIVE hours playing with some awesome neon wand electrical toys. The endless shocking each other all night was incredibly entertaining.
Watching everyone come up with awesome fun was just the best. I had a grin on all night! I even jumped in here and there too. Though being my first time hosting, I found myself hesitant to receive anything.
This hesitance was not unfounded, my house play party experience was limited to two experiences, one where my girlfriend at the time and I didn’t connect with everyone else and one where we arrived far too late and the bonding had begun already. Both of these experiences were short and incredibly awkward. So I had no experience being at a party from start to finish!
It was an incredibly intense and intimate experience for the group as a whole. Even if we weren’t physically intimate with everyone, I credit this to the small group size and limited amount of space. Sure, it kept people from getting into any elaborate kinky scenes, but I think the closeness really made it a special experience.
So when can I do the next one?? 😀
