Review: Behind Closed Doors White Party

This Review was Written From His Perspective:

Background Information

This party was an On-Premise event located in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday, June 26, 2010. It was hosted by Behind Closed Doors (BCD) and was Couples Only. It costs $30 a quarter to be a member of BCD and each party is $140. The party ran from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. with an informal School of Sex discussion from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. We are under the impression that approximately 30 Couples attended. To become a member you must be approved.

Guest Makeup

The screening process does exist and it must be very effective considering that a VERY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER of Couples there were VERY attractive. The age range appeared to range from 20’s to early 40’s with the vast majority of guests being in their late twenties to early thirties. HOWEVER, it seemed to us that MOST of the guests were either COMPLETELY new to the lifestyle or very close to new.

Venue

There was an open bar with a bartender, several couches and an area with several beds. We were expecting the venue to be much larger but you cannot have super high expectations for venue size when attending parties in Manhattan.

The Hosts

The hosts, J&D were super friendly and welcoming. It did appear they really cared about their guests enjoying themselves and on improving their parties.

Criticisms

The party ran officially from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. And they were NOT joking when they listed 3 a.m. People were in mid-play (including us) when all of a sudden at 3 a.m. the lights came on. We have been to countless parties and this has NEVER happened to us before. To be fair, J&D did send us an e-mail the next day explaining why the party needed to end at 3 a.m. so I will share that with you now:

“I'm terribly sorry about having to close up shop at 3:15am, but unfortunately most of the staff had to leave and a condition of renting the venue is to end the party at approx. 3am. As you may guess, it's not easy to throw events of this size and caliber in Manhattan at new venues each time, and we have to spend significant time after the party to clean and pack up. For example, all of the mattresses, decorations and much of the furniture had to be removed and brought down to our van. Additionally, the place needs to be completed sanitized and washed down as part of our rental agreement. By the time we were finally done and back home it was nearly 6am!”

Will We Attend Another Party?

Yes, but with a plan. We will attend the School of Sex informal discussion that beings at 9 p.m. so we can have more time to get to know the Couples and figure out which ones are there just beginning to explore the lifestyle and which ones are serious about playing. This will allow us to get started playing MUCH earlier and while the lights going on will probably still happen to us because we typically are one of the last Couples to leave a party it will give us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves ;-)
