There's a new kid on the block and
it's called The F Club - London's
newest, and, they say, biggest and
most glamorous swingers' club.
A couple of our SHM staff visited the
club for a party evening in May 2007.
Easy to find,
the F Club is
situated just minutes
High Street in South
London. It's tucked
away in a business
complex and can
therefore afford the
luxury of 24-hour
secure parking for
upwards of 200 cars.
We arrived at the start of the evening -
around 9.00 pm - and within half an hour
people began to pack in. As the F Club is for
members only, you have the peace of mind
that there is a screening process that includes
proof of ID and address.We were met and
greeted by very friendly staff who gave us the
new members' tour and we were impressed.
The club's foyer leads into the 'Blue'
Bar/Lounge with its cedar dance floor - that
would see some very erotic gyrations later in
the evening. Earlier, however, this zone is a
social area where people meet and greet and
to get to know each other. There is a soft
drinks bar and guests can bring their own
booze, which the sexily dressed and
pleasantly chatty staff label and store in the
ample fridges or shelves, and will dispense
for you during the evening. You are not
permitted to bring in soft drinks, but prices
are similar to pub - well, London pub - prices
at £2.00 for water, £2.50 for Red Bull and £1
for juices and sodas.
The staff worked conscientiously all
night, collecting glasses, emptying ashtrays
and remaining incredibly friendly. No one
knows yet, what will happen when the Tony B
Liar's smoking ban is due to come into force
in July, but there is an ample area outside for
those addicted to the weed and, currently,
there are two smoking areas - one near the
entrance and one at the rear.
Moving on through the club you will find
a cosy and subtly lit harem room full of
cushions and drapes. Then there is the
ubiquitous medical room - tastefully done
with an examination table and curtains - and
one could almost expect
Lara Stone (Casualty) to
rip the curtains aside and
stride in at any moment.
Further down the
corridor is a dark room
with fondle holes, beds and
all that you would expect.
(By the early hours this room
was being put to good use.)
For your entertainment
There is then a very well
equipped and spacious
dungeon, complete with
spanking bench, a love-swing
and various other BDSM
accoutrements, not least the
spanking wheel from the film
Preaching to the Perverted,
designed by Luke Morgan.
Opposite the dungeon, is the
cinema playroom. Erotic films are
played throughout the night on a sixfoot
screen, and the room is equipped
with double beds, couches and private
'cubicles' that, by about 1.30 am, were all
occupied and being given some serious use.
We were told that there are plans -
not yet finalised - for a room with Jacuzzis,
shower and changing area, including
hairdryers and mirrors for make-up etc.When
this is completed, the club-goers will want for
nothing by way of facilities.
The evening warms up
By around 10.30, there were about sixty
people in the club. They were mostly couples
but there were a number of single women
and single men. Another influx of people at
11.30 pushed the number up to around 170,
and all of the rooms were busy.
However, it wasn't until after midnight
that the club seriously got going and people
really opened up. The dark room, the harem,
the cinema and the dungeon were all fully
occupied and buzzing with activity.
There was a range of people - we met all
sorts, from single women in their late 20s to
30s. Most clubbers were couples, ranging in
age from about 30 to 55. There were also a
few middle-aged single men. Everyone
attending had made the effort to dress up
either smartly, in burlesque style or in fetish
gear. One man was turned away early on for
wearing jeans - so the dress-code really is
'smart or sexy'.
There were also quite a few novices who
were looking for a third partner to experiment
with (95 per cent looking for a woman).
As there was a high proportion of single
women, this didn't seem to be a problem.
The F Club hosts three to four
parties a week in the evenings, and
is also considering some daytime
functions. I also like the idea they have
of introducing a newcomers' night.
Well run - as I'm sure it will be -
this should be a real hit.
In summary, although
only still in its early stages,
this is a very professionally,
well-run and friendly club,
and we will certainly be
going back there in the
near future - not to do a
further review, but to enjoy
what promises to become
a seriously good venue.
