Regardless of the length of time you may have been part of the Alternative Adult Lifestyle, it is mandatory for new member couples and single females to attend and complete orientation before attending any L'Sota function. Orientation is, with few exceptions, held before a L'Sota event. Total time for orientation varies from one to one-and-a-half hours, depending on the number of new couples and new single females attending. The presenters of L'Sota's orientation are couples and/or single females with years of experience in L'Sota as well as dedication to the Alternative Adult Lifestyle.
The orientation presentation is given by L'Sota representatives who have been invited to, and have given workshops and orientations for new couples at almost all of the major national conventions including, Conclave - Chicago, Illinois, Conclave "The Sequel" - Chicago, Illinois, The Lifestyle Organization convention, Visions - Florida, Happenings - Michigan, in addition to many other clubs and smaller regional conventions throughout the US.
The atmosphere at orientation is casual, with information delivered in such a way you will discover exactly what L'Sota is, and what the Alternative Adult Lifestyle, or "swinging" is all about. We urge you to write down any questions and concerns you may have and bring them with you to orientation.
During orientation, we often we hear males of "couples" state,
"My wife wouldn't do that." This is another reason why L'Sota's orientations are
so beneficial. It allows you as a couple or single female to ask questions as well as see
and meet people that are involved in L'Sota. Orientation gives you the chance, once and
for all, to put to rest the "myths" as well as the "stereotypes" and
all misconceptions of what the Alternative Adult Lifestyle and L'Sota is all about.
Many times in the beginning or before entering into "swinging"
the female of a couple is apprehensive about the situation. What we have found to be true
is that once the couple attends a L'Sota orientation, the female of that couple discovers
that "swinging" (the Alternative Lifestyle) is not what she thought it was. In
fact, many times after orientation it is the female of the couple that is even more
excited and interested about L'Sota than her male partner.
Some of the topics that are covered and discussed at orientation are: STD's and HIV, how to meet other couples and singles at a dance social or how to intermix with others on Play Night. There is discussion on how to say "no thank you," how to say "yes," body image, how to deal with jealousy, female bisexuality, why male bisexuality is so often hidden "under the table" in swinging, how a couple can approach singles, do's and don'ts, etiquette within L'Sota and the alternative Adult Lifestyle and much more.
All of your questions as well as your concerns and "wonders" shall be addressed and answered. No question is too bizarre to be asked.
Orientation is designed to give you the information you need to make an informed decision. You are under absolutely no obligation to enter into the Alternative Adult Lifestyle when you attend orientation. And, once you have completed orientation, you make the decision when you are ready to take that exciting and sensual step forward into the Lifestyle.
