    Hey all,

    We've been to TTR 3 times and had a blast each time. We loved the party atmosphere, but did find it a bit clique-ish at times. We're not "lifestylers" so to speak, but we are definitely open in the right circumstances. We're hoping to find a more "open" environment to explore with others, but also want a fun place to dance, party, and also relax if we choose to do that instead.

    We're just hoping someone out there can kind of let us know what to expect in terms of differences with TTR and the ability to "explore" when we want. The Jacuzzi area and sin rooms sound fun but perhaps a bit intimidating.

    Ben and Jamie

    And specifically around the playroom and jacuzzi being intimidating I think it is likely you are imagining it being way more over the top than it is. The playroom is hidden to the side so you wouldn't even notice it unless you were looking for it. As for the jacuzzi it is more about the party first and then the play happens to the side. All is very respectful, no pressure and you don't have to do anything you don't want to do. You can just party, be a voyeur, be an exhibitionist or participate with people or person you mesh with. Totally in your hands to decide. It is a wonderful place :)

    Kyle is absolutely correct on this one. Couldn't agree more. Unless your looking for the playroom you'd almost never find it. There is no pressure to do anything you don't want to do around the jacuzzi, it really is more about the party and the play is just kind of happening to the side. It may possibly be the best place on earth, just my .02 worth. :)

    If you had a good time at TTR and you want to explore" but be comfortable at all times, give DRM the shot it deserves. It's great.

    With Temptation being closed I'm pretty sure we'll give Desire a try this winter. I'm glad to hear other peoples reservations, because it eases some of mine. If it's even half as "Rediculawesome" as TTR I'm sure we'll have a blast. LOL!

    My husband and I love Desire. We went there a couple years ago when I went to teach fitness there. We are not in the LS but are open to the right circumstances. We LOVED LOVED LOVED it there. It was hard to explain to anyone else. You just can't explain how awesome it is. We met some people there the first year that we vacationed with in future years. They have become great friends of ours! We love this place.

    We are trying TTR for the first time in 1 week and are nervous....nervous about what to expect. We feel like Desire is our HOME away from home.

    Desire is a great place to do whatever you want. Private, open and comfortable. But be prepared to see anything. That's all I'm gonna say xo

    Be aware that all of January is I. S. M. that's international swingers month. It is probably the most hard care month of the year. We have been to Desire at least 15 times and whilst playful are not really in the lifestyle. We deliberately avoid January as we know I.S.M is way more than we would enjoy.

    I would hate for you to have a negative experience simply due to bad timing and a lack of information. For the record, we leave for our fourth trip this year st 0700 tomorrow morning.

    Hey I noticed you mention that you went to teach fitness classes there. Can you fill me in on that process and how you arranged that. My wife does the same thing but never there. Might be cool to do. Feel free to message direct if you like so as not to hijack this thread.

    We are Temptation addicts + we tried Desire RM for the 1st time (last month)
    We. Loved. It. We had an amazing time. We are not in the lifestyle but we had such a good time, still.

    We might try it again in January 2017!

    If you've never been to either place then the differences are subtle and you'll have a great time wherever you go. The concept is identical at each place. The atmosphere changes constantly depending on the crowd so I can't really say that Pearl is always '___' and RM is '___'.

    There are a ton of detailed trip reports here though - check out Kyle's.

    Is there something in particular you'd like us to compare for you? Room size, views, food options, size of the hot tub, etc?

    We like to say it's like going for dinner - sometimes we go to a steakhouse, sometimes Italian, or sushi. We just like them all, one isn't necessarily better.
