The real "Swingtown"

CAUTION: Extreme epidermis exposure and '70s disco music...proceed at your own risk! Kudos to our local film fest, Cucalorus, for airing this selection.

I was looking out for Jayne and Mavis in this clip, but I guess they were still waiting to shine when this was going on.
Looks a lot more fun than 'Wittgenstein's Wunder Bar'.

this looks like the straight version of the documentary Gay sex in the 70's". it's about time someone decided Plato's retreat was worth talking about again!

Jayne and I might have had lots of random sex with strangers in the
'70s and '80s, but certainly not with the "bridge-and-tunnel" crowd!

I've always found this time period fascinating. Heck, I was too young though. I didn't turn 10 until December of 1980. I definitely had some older relatives who did all the swinging they could.

I love the scene from Summer of Sam when they go to Plato's Retreat. Ofcourse, once John Leguizamo cums he gets jealous and pissed at his girlfriend Mira Sorvino who is playing around too - just to make him happy. I love seeing him go from orgasmic hedonist to pissed off insecure macho prick.
