Behind closed doors: Leaders, locals mingle at swingers club

CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Thirty miles north of Cincinnati, in a nondescript building that sits on Cincinnati Dayton Road, is a members-only nightclub that caters to people that participate in the “Lifestyle,” or swingers.

According to Dane, the owner of Club SinDay, who asked that we use only his first name, there are currently nearly fifty swingers clubs in the state of Ohio alone.

Dane granted FOX19 NOW's Amy Wagner rare access to his club. “From where I'm sitting right now this looks like a normal club. If I was sitting here on a Saturday night what would I see?” Wagner asked.

“Mostly, in this area you'd see people dancing, playing pool, getting to know each other, some kissing, making out like you would in a normal club,” Dane said.

There's also lighted poles on the dance floor, a locker room for you to stash your clothes and back rooms that we weren't allowed to shoot.

One of them is called the fish bowl. It has a swing hanging from the ceiling.

"I want that to be incognito. If you're a Lifestyler and come in here, we'll show you that but for the most part I'd rather not talk about it,” Dane said.

Dane also won't talk about his more than 10,000 members, but he will say you might be surprised by who they are. “Let's just say a lot of them are in important positions. Higher up than many others are. Some of them run cities. You just never know who you are going to get in here,” he said.

And that includes celebrities, who he says have stopped in from time to time.

One thing Dane will talk openly about is his message to those who don't agree with his lifestyle.

Wagner asked, “What do you say to those people who say ‘Hey, this is sin. This is now what a marriage is supposed to be like and to look like?"

“God will judge. I don't care what anybody else says. Those going around pointing a finger saying what you're doing right now, it's sinful: you're judging,” Dane said.

In fact, Dane says for most swingers the lifestyle actually strengthens their marriage. “If you both enjoyed that experience then you have just fulfilled your love even more. You've fulfilled fantasies that you've probably both had,” he said.

Like it or not, it's a lifestyle that was once very secretive, but now, the Tri-State has become a very public epicenter of swinging.

Some members of Dane's club can take credit for that: They're the stars of the recently canceled reality show "Neighbors with Benefits.”

"You're in this together. Neither one of you is doing it to hurt the other. You're doing it together as a team,” said Tony McCollister.

Hear more from Tony and Diana McCollister, the stars of A&E reality show “Neighbors with Benefits” Wednesday night at 10 on FOX19 NOW and find out why they say swinging actually strengthens their marriage.
