We had a long chat with Bob Hannaford (half of the infamous "Bob & Tess" team), famous for creating spectacular events and cruises.
Bob talks about the swinging lifestyle, being naked (pretty much a requirement to survive in New Orleans) and having a great time at a convention. They stared with having 100 couples, now their events welcome more than 800 couples each. Instead of creating one big event, they create a cluster of smaller activities, so that everybody can find their own thing.
The culture of New Orleans is very open to all walks of life. Bob has been organizing a parade during Naughty in N’awlins for over 10 years, which has morphed into a "swingers pride parade". It almost looks like a sexy political rally.
The only people who make less money when the swingers take over the own are the strippers. But they do have strip-club take-overs, to great effect!
