Some swingers say that adult parties in the north are attended by people who are
generally less inhibited than their southern counterparts.
It is rumoured that parties tend to get going quicker and attract more exhibitionists. Group sex is much more of a free-for-all affair and the preference is for swinging in public areas as opposed to private rooms. Is this North-South cleavage just a myth?
Before anyone can be sure it needs a lot more Northern swingers to attend and comment on adult parties outside of their region. Similarly more southerners need to visit some of the superb adult parties in the North.
Whatever the truths concerning any differences between adult party behaviour in northern and southern England, we can at least define for you what area we mean by "The Northern Region"
When we first started Club Aphrodite, back in 1996, we needed to divide the country up into fairly arbitrary membership areas. This was mainly because the club was a postal one and post code areas were important to the functioning of things like, club magazine distribution, contact letters forwarding and party host organisers locations.
The regions we came up with were: Anglia (our original heartland), London, Midlands, Northeast, Northwest, Scotland, Southeast, Southwest and Wales.
We decided to designate the northeast region as consisting of postal code areas; Bradford, Durham, Darlington, Doncaster, Huddersfield, Harrogate, Hull,
Halifax, Leeds, Newcastle-upon-tyne, Sheffield, Sunderland, Teeside, Wakefield and York.
We defined the Northwest as being the postal areas of Blackburn, Bolton, Carlisle, Chester, Crewe, Flyde, Liverpool, Lancaster, Lincoln, Manchester, Oldham, Preston, Stockport, Warrington, and Wigan.
Later on, we amalgamated the two regions to form our northern region as referred to on this page and elsewhere in this web-site.
