    We're a British couple in our 30's. Very used to nudity with the female half usually wearing a thong and going topless even in resorts where it isn't the norm. Things are always much more comfortable with likeminded people though so we're thinking of heading to Desire next year.
    We're not into the lifestyle but are probably more open than ever. Don't know if we'd ever go for it but it turns us on when we're 'in the zone'.
    We went to Temptation once after a stormy boobs cruise and the toplessness and sexiness all seemed a bit 'forced' which didn't do it for us really as we're used to that from a normal European vacation. Don't get me wrong, the people were great (many of whom are on this forum) We're used to nudity so it was a bit contrived. We're looking for somewhere chilled out where people can be topless and a bit raunchy without total chaos ensuing around us for chaos' sake! We turned down some swingers we got on with at a 'standard' resort in the DR and considered going through with it because it just developed naturally and was chilled out. We don't want to go to a place where people are doing it for the sake of it. We'd rather a chilled vibe where people are naked because that's cool and they're just doing their thing and any sexual stuff develops naturally and as a result of hanging out. Made-up fun isn't fun in our opinion. Will Desire be a good bet for us? If not any suggestions?
    Hope all that makes sense and hope it hasn't offended anyone. It wasn't meant in that way! We appreciate all the help we get and the people we met in 2013 were wonderful!!! Also we normal to for luxury hotels. Anything that fits the bill? Thanks muchly.

    Yes I think that Desire Resorts would suit you well. Best advice is to try both. Riviera Maya & Pearl.

    You could split your holiday between the two resorts.

    Pearl has the least number of rooms & we find it very relaxing but extremely sexy. We are trying out Riviera Maya next week.

    Go. You'll never regret it. Desire & Desire Pearl are different animals to TTR. I would suggest RM (purely on your age). It's SO chilled out (no pressure, ever) but SO naughty (if you want). The service, food etc is that much more ($$$) than TTR....Never 'enforced' (I understand what you're saying)
    PM if you want to ask any specifics.

    Based on your description and explanation of why TTR was not the right fit, I think Desire would be perfect for you. I agree with gogo's thoughts.

    The demographic 'tends' to be a bit younger than Pearl, and the nights (in our opinion) are more fun there, re the disco and playroom.
    Pearl's disco tends to empty early, and the fun heads to the jacuzzi.
    We do love them both though!

    What kind of activities are there? We're very active and usually play a lot of volleyball or beach games. Is this an option or is just 'sexy' games?

    They have both sexy games and beach volleyball everyday. A few other non-sexy games as well like ping pong, corn hole

    Well, there Pearl wins hands down! 8 entertainers, all full of energy, something going on all day, corn hole, volleyball, water polo, pool casino, aqua-Zumba, dance classes etc etc etc.
    Currently the entertainment crew at RM is down to 3 newbies, who really haven't a clue, and were resorting to using the guests as entertainment (cringe-worthy).

    We're here at TTR right now and agree 100 percent with what you say. We are Brits living in the USA and I do think that the toplessness is a titilation for the Americans but not Europeans as most Americans have not experienced toplessness before. We also find it very cliquey here as most people are multiple times visitors and they tend to stay in their own groups. Don't get me wrong, they are all polite, non-judgmental and friendly, it's just difficult to fit in a group of people that know each other so well.

    We will probably try Desire next year as it seems more real and less contrived than TTR from what I have read. We will come back to TTR at some point in the future, but not as a single couple. Better to have your own clique from the start.

    I'm a Brit living in Texas and yes, Desire is definitely what you are looking for. We are not in the lifestyle and loved going to Temptation; until we tried Desire! Now we go four or five times a year!!

    We looked at Hedo for Young Swingers week and the activity all happening on the nude side put the lady of the marriage off (too many dicks floating she says). Will Desire by dick-floating heavy?

    Hey, so you went to RM by now. What do you think? Some people say it's a younger crowd. How did you find it? Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Desire Riviera Maya had some very nice features for us such as poolside beds, great breakfast & lunch buffet, a wonderful evening outside lounge before the indoor dance floor opened up on the 2nd floor above the lobby (we don't particularly enjoy being under a roof / indoors in Mexico when socializing & dancing).

    The group at RM was younger while the rooftop hot tub (3 storey staircase) is quite small & showing it's age. Its fun to be scrunched in with a bunch of naked people around 4-7 pm but that doesn't feel very romantic or sexy around 11 & under the same conditions. We enjoy some space to ourselves & then getting close as we choose to. The pool, swim up bar & open sided lunch buffet is the hot spot for sure. Beach beds & bar are also lovely. Our RM room was terribly dated and lacked a sexy / romantic theme. Our TTR rooms have always been sexy & in our opinion Pearl just simply immerses guests in sensuality & couples romance.

    I think it's safe to say our future trips will always include a few last days at Pearl but will continue to start at Temptations or RM. We are doing 7 nights at TTR in April followed up with 4 at Pearl. No RM in April & we are not feeling the rush for us to return there.

    I guess there is no wrong choice in our opinion & we would gladly take a holiday at any of the 3 resorts over a winter day in Canada.

    No singles at Desire. So dick floating should be equivalent to ? hmmmm to wet beavers?

    I assume not everyone at Desire is in the lifestyle....If you are not is it that big a deal? No judgement here just wondering about that dynamic if the relationship you are in is not open.

    I love Desire Riviera Maya and when you are a member, wow, the service is out of this world. The setting is great and the day time restaurant by the pool is just fab, being able to just come out of the pool and grab a bite to eat without wasting a minute.
    Regarding the guests, just like at TTR, one week to the next can be very different.
    The beach is much nicer. People make up lots of stories about the place which are pure fabrication. People are friendly, food is great, resort has a good layout. The only thing that I was not prepared for were the mosquitoes, but knowing this, next time i would bring baby oil to put on after the shower as it is a great repellent :)
