There are almost 500 swingers club in France, many of which are in Paris.
And according to the owner of upmarket Quai 17 on the banks of the River Seine, the establishments are becoming more and more fashionable.
In fact, the Inrocks magazine was reporting a "resurgence" in the libertine clubs in the capital as far back as 2013. The news prompted French newspaper L'Express to plot all of the clubs on a map, noting some arrondissements in Paris were hotter than others, but also pointing out other areas were less, ahem, bare. 
So where are the crème-de-la-crème hotspots when it comes to Parisian couples seeking their sexual thrills? Where exactly are these nightclubs hidden? Could there even be one in your own neighbourhood?
We found out more:

Les Chandelles

Les Chandelles writes on its official website that it boasts a “captivating trip to the heart of sensuality” and offers “the subtle magic of eroticism”. And it couldn't really be more central, located in the first arrondissement in the heart of the city. This is a couples only swingers club, except for Monday nights and during the afternoons.

Location: 1 Rue Thérèse, 75001 Paris

Cost: Prices go as high as €290 for a night at this club, which includes a candlelit dinner with wine.

Club Libertin 2Plus2

This club boasts online that it is the first swinger's club in Paris since 1972. It's 400 square metres of pure pleasure and offers "the five S's". In case you're wondering, that's: Sensuality, Seduction, Simplicity, Safety, and Savoir-Faire (or know-how in English, but you have to admit, it sounds better in French).  

Location: 9 Boulevard Edgar Quinet, 75014

Cost: Couples are €85 with a champagne bottle and access to a buffet

Taken Club

Location, location, location. If you’re in Paris, you can’t get a better location for a night of good old swinging than at Taken Club. It’s on the Île Saint-Louis, the island in the middle of the River Seine and just a stone’s throw from the Notre Dame Cathedral. Reviewing site “Le Petit Futé” says that it is one of the best Libertine spots of the French capital, praising its light show and “amazing” bar.

Location: 8, rue Le Regrattier, 75004

Cost: €149 including buffet


This place in the sixth arrondissement offers 250 square metres “dedicated to pleasure”. The English home page offers eight “cuddle areas” that organizers promise “will surprise you with a unique atmosphere to realize your sexual fantasies”. In fact, they don’t just suggest you visit… they “dare you” to try it.

Location: 92, rue du Cherche-Midi, Galerie Le Sevrien, 75006

Cost: Up to €150 for a couple in the VIP area (including champagne)

Le Fullmoon

This club, which couldn’t be more centrally located, also has one of the most informative websites. It even offers a 360 degree tour of the inside, if you enjoy that kind of thing. The site promises that the club will “satisfy even the more demanding”. This club seems to have it all too, including buffets, private rooms, and the possibility to book out the whole complex if you have the need.

Location: 13 rue d'Argenteuil, 75001

Cost: Couples for €52. Significantly more for single men.

Le Pluriel Club

Sex can be about all the senses… even the sense of hearing. And Le Pluriel knows it. In fact, the club writes that in its basement, there is a “superb bathroom and initimate corners where the light and sound levels are especially designed to accommodate your finest pleasures.” Indeed.

Location: 13 rue François Miron, 75004 Paris

Cost: €80 for a couple with two drinks included

Le Moon City

Cost: €148 for men and free access for women everyday except from Mondays and Wednesdays.

Quai 17
This club is a definite hotspot in the city. The website boasts that there is a round bed and a glory hole for the most daring couples. If you want to know a whole lot more about it, read this story from when a reporter from the AFP new agency recently visited.
