The “Life on the Swingset” podcast crew will be back at Desire for their annual full resort takeover. Join Cooper & Ophelia, Ginger & the Prof, and Dylan & Tonia, along with JV & Shara from Ending the Sexual Dark Age.

Whether you are swinger, lifestyle, polyamorous, voyeur or exhibitionist, straight, bi, or gay; you’ll feel at home with this merry band of misfits on the Swingset trip. Expect honest talk and lots of fun!

For seven years now, The Swingset Takes Desire trip at Desire RM has been utterly incredible, selling out with the most amazing and open-minded group of people you can imagine.

Again in 2018, Swingset will have the run of the resort, to organize the way we want to enjoy, to plan the activities without worrying about getting out of anyone's way, and to guarantee the most awesome group of people to ever pull up on this bit of beach on the Riviera Maya.

This will be another sell-out, and you can choose your exact room until they are gone.

Come be a part of the Life on the Swingset trip in 2017 - our next Full Resort Takeover!

Our 2017 schedule included:


A Pantheon of Gods and Myth


A bacchanal is awaiting your presence. Join Bacchus as an acolyte, follower, or fellow god, demigod, or demiurge. Old god or new, the only thing certain is we will all revel in the pleasures of the flesh.

Because You Can Can-Can – Cabaret / Moulin Rouge


What’s your poison? Weimar Republic, or early 20th Century Paris? Absinthe addled artists, decadent dandies and players, masters of ceremony, cancan dancers, performers and audience members of all genders. “Welcome to Cabaret!”

Bods…IN SPACE! – Sexy Sci-Fi


Star Wars, or Star Trek? Doctor Who or The Fifth Element? Maybe the purple haired beauties from U.F.O? Let your imagination run wild, and your sci fi sexual exploits shine.

What’re You Into? – Fetish & Kink


What tickles your fancy in that ‘special’ way? Leather, latex, lace, PVC, or rope? Maybe something else? Indulge your bliss, we all want to see. This theme night occurs on the same night as our Dungeon Disco takeover.

Skin Flicks – Stage & Screen


Pick a character or star from your favorite play, film, or music genre. Plunder the best/worst films, plays, musicals, or musical artists that pop culture has to offer. Rocky Horror, Hedwig, Gone With the Wind, Bill & Ted, Romeo & Juliet, Elvis, Gaga… the list is endless.

Hoist the Colors High – Pride / Rainbow


Show your true colours, fluorescent pink, lipstick red, shiny black, or fly your Pride flag proudly with all the colours of the rainbow. Show us who you really are, or who you would be if you could be anything you desired.

Once Upon a Sexy Time – Fractured Fairy Tales


Come as your favorite, prince, princess, plucky sidekick, fairy godparent, or evil villain or henchperson. The only requirement here is that these stories all have to have (cough) happy endings. Kudos for the most bent, twisted, perverted, or original interpretation.

Do I have to join in the group activities?
Nope, you can come with the group, but only do as much or as little as you like. We think we are a barrel of fun, but if you’d rather enjoy quiet time with your sweetie feel free to enjoy the quiet areas of Desire.

Nearby things to do

In addition to all the fun Swingset activities on the resort, there is nearby:

Shopping, clubs and restaurants in Downtown Cancun.

Lots of excursions like zip-lines, horseback riding, 4x4 adventures and ruins to explore.

Scuba diving is available and training is even done locally.

Join the 2018 Desire takeover
