Are there many singles at Hedo? Is there a time of year where there are more singles than at other times?

It used to be September was the time for singles, but I don't think it's as good anymore.
The summer months maybe? My trips in late spring have been OK, but it changes so much from year to year...


All in all, I'd rather be a hippy.

I've been going to Hedo solo for a long time. I don't think there's really a 'season' when there are more of less singles. Regardless; singles are always welcome and included in everything. Just my observation, for whatever that's worth.

I travel single and go at New Years. A few singles are there at that time, but not many. Mostly couples.

I go several times a year. The number of singles seems about the same for each trip. My Wet, Wild and Wicked groups also seem to have about the same percentage of singles on each of those 3 trips.

When I asked Donna Grant, the hotel mgr., in2018 she said singles total numbers compared with couples are significantly down from 10+ years ago and the # of single women to single men is closer...20 years ago it was 1 to 5...now it's around 1 to 2. If I remember correctly, singles #s are very slightly higher in the summer than the other times of the year. So far I still see lots of singles at Hedo and appreciate the vibe they bring.

One of the issues is - how do you know who is single and who is not?
Women often hide being single because they don't want to be hit on by All the men (single and married), while the men don't want to be too obvious as single, in case they get labeled as one of those DSM (Dread Single Males) who are pains in the ass.
So yes, there will be singles there, but it might take a little effort to find them...

For a place with a historic reputation for being open-minded, some folks sure seem to get pretty judgmental about some things like singles, especially single men...…… or at least, that's how it seems sometimes.

Since the resort stopped doing the single share program a few years ago, I'm not surprised that the single population may have decreased some. But their reduction of the single supplement charge from 50% to 20% for the mid-April through the start of the New Year's week has helped those numbers to increase some.

Now I understand why I've been seeing fewer singles at New Year's the past few trips -- and the few stalwarts that do still go at that time are now taking shorter trips, like 5 days or so.

We've never met anyone that concealed the fact that they were single (or coupled), in our various trips. Everyone has been very up-front about their status, and didn't hesitate to discuss it. Granted, that's only a sample of a couple of hundred guests.... wink

Pretty much everyone I meet at Hedo just assumes I'm married (including our own special book author). I have to tell them otherwise - and the reactions can be mixed. I've reached the point where I don't bother anymore.

Over on the adult travel forum some people are trying to organize a 'Cuckold Week' which I think would be ideal for single guys. The idea being a week for couples with guys who like to share their spouses and the spouses like to oblige.

Think of the poor folks (couples) who might be first timers and walk into that bunch of nonsense. Would be a "great week" for "no means no"...


Follow your dream! Unless it's the one where you're at work in your underwear during a fire drill.

Or perhaps one could wear the same T shirt a newly arrived lady in the lobby was wearng last December that said .....something like.....My husband wants you to have sex with me
with a picture of a little guy in the closet with a pair of binoculars .
This isn't exactly what the t shirt said and there was no picture but the print was very large and it pretty much spelled out the scenario. Did anyone else see this t shirt?

I just returned from Hedo last week and was saddened by the lack of wooing techniques of yore at Hedo that made all the sex so much fun emotionally rather than just physically. (Yes, even if it was only the catch & release technique for a person you found out was leaving the next day.) Seems like these days it's all about a description of your sexual fantasy and seeing who is willing to fulfill it. It's not 'worse,' just different from what made Hedo fun for me originally.

That wooing/flirting was part of the fun of Hedo--along with a piano bar where the voices could be heard above the actual piano being played and the beach/pool games that were silly rather than vulgar and demeaned no one. To be honest, my only joy at Hedo now is seeing old friends and making new ones. God, I sound like an old fogey, eh? (as she raises her cornucopia to her ear...)

I never could get the hang of wooing/flirting. Probably why I never got married.
Now If I had had someone to teach me...

Not to worry, PP. Married is different from 'getting laid'...wooing/flirting gets you laid. I trust you've done that. Grin!

Yes, for awhile I had a job working with bricks and mortar.
But what does that have to do with women?

PP, it has to do with women b/c there's one pictured on the back cover of "Opportunities in Masonry Careers"...my first exciting book. Yup! That's the answer to the question. I'm sure of it.

So I was thinking "Ha ha, nice come back". But I was bored so I googled it.

The book is Real? And it sells for 2 grand each?! shocked
Does this mean you wrote the book on laying careers?"

That's an even better comeback, PP!

If you want to talk hods, quoins, monk bonds, and burning the line, I'm your gal! (I was also the managing editor of Concrete Construction magazine for 5 years well in the past...so I can talk re-entrant corner positions, chairs, efflorescence and joints & cracks all you want). Just know the difference between cement (powdery) and concrete (hard or wet) and I'm prostrate before you.

Back to Hedo so Denny doesn't delete me....Single men at Hedo these days have been way less a PIA than in the '90s. Maybe b/c fewer of them come to Hedo? And the ones that do are often experienced in LS or long-time Hedo guests who know the ropes or just well-socialized. Just my take...
