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