They've been to Hedonism a few times, not so much for the swinging but for the thrill of public sex and nudity.
But I decide to go to Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica—a clothing-optional resort that bills itself as "the world's most iconic adult playground"—because they invite me and I'm devoted to having experiences. At the front desk, the receptionist gets me a Red Stripe beer and asks if it's my first time to "Hedo," as everyone calls it. In the omelet line I meet the guy I sat next to in yoga. It's around then that I start making some fresh observations about the human form.
A bemused "sure" falls out of my drowsy, sunburned face.
Getting ready for this date resembles how I get ready for others: shower and blast Beyoncé and text my friends about what could go right and wrong. They met while in a threesome—he was dating her friend and she stole him away but all three people are cool now!
Then I inch out further, past my deck, so I'm sitting on a lounge chair in just bottoms and a large, floppy, necessary-not-just-for-privacy-but-for-sun-protection hat.
I am armed also with my favorite kind of book, a hefty 500-page novel about college kids coming of age. There are beach breezes alighting on areas of my skin that have never felt breezes before.
Outdoor hardcore videos are about public nudity and sex outdoors.
