Thanks to DSK and Fifty Shades of Grey, swinging has made headlines in French newspapers. But where are all these Paris sex clubs? Turns out they might be closer than you'd think.


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:
