This isn't really about Hedo but since there are quite a few lifestyle couples who visit Hedo and the new owners may or may not be targeting the lifestyle crowd I saw something on tv the other day that was interesting and something I thought I'd never see in mainstream media. I recorded a show on the History Channel Thursday night and watching it friday one of the commercials was for Adult Friend Finder. The commercial wasn't trying to promote itself as a match.com kind of site but the premise seemed to be a couple looking for a third in this case a lady joining them for drinks in the last scene with what comes next left to the imagination. I've heard a figure of three million or more people in the lifestyle in the US alone but I never imagined we'd see the lifestyle put out there to vanilla America. Like I said it's not really about Hedo but with the past discussions about the lifestyle influence at the resort over the years I just found it an interesting tidbit.

Adult Friend Finder and Alternative Match had launched their National Television commercials starting in 2008, when CBS started the television series ”Swingtown” 2008-2010 drama about couple entering into the lifestyle for a bit of sexy and erotic fun. I remember about 20 or so CBS stations refused to show the program. Which actually a tad boring, other than Molly Parker who was hot. The show only made it 3 season due to less the great ratings. But those commercials live on.

Swingtown only lasted 13 episodes of one session before being cancelled.

Swingtown could have been a better show if it were on HBO or Showtime rather than on a major network.
