A survey has revealed that even New York City swingers' sex parties have felt the heat of recession resulting in fewer parties.
A couple lingering near the bar explained that the sluggish economy has thinned out local swinging parties.
"If you want to save money, you can stay home and get laid for free," the New York Daily News quoted them as saying.
Like the roaming party DDeviousDelights, most New York City swinging venues are suffering from the economic malaise.
The recession has left both stationary swinging clubs and roaming adult parties with lacklustre event attendance and shorter membership lists.
"They used to say sex was an industry that was not affected by the recession - that's not true," a DDeviousDelights cofounder who wished to remain anonymous because of privacy concerns, revealed.
"Everybody-A to Z in the sex-related industries-is feeling the pinch," the person added.
