Visiting A Swinger Members Club, My Night With Purple Mamba 

Visiting A Swinger Members Club, My Night With Purple Mamba. Moving back to the north does come with some perks. Firstly, not only is my commute to work all over and done within a few minutes (wake up, kettle on, into the office), but also I have a new swinger lifestyle club to call home. 

I have been spoilt living in London; I’ll be first to admit it. You get the best of everything, right on your doorstep, seven days a week and twenty-four hours a day. 

Want to have a gangbang on a Thursday afternoon? There are places for that. Want to organise a lunchtime session with latex-clad Dominatrix? You can get your secretary to pencil it into your diary, ‘Flogging 1.15 pm’, and if you want to buy a strap on at 1 am there are places for that too. 

So with all this instant availability, to find a club that is on my doorstep and that offer their members a lot more than just swinging was a real treat. 

So yes, I’ve swapped London lights for Northern, well, not so lit up at nights, #ruralliving. But whoever knew moving back home could be so fulfilling? 

What Is Purple Mamba? 

A private, members-only lifestyle club located in West Bridgeford in Nottingham. Purple Mamba offers membership to couples, single gents and single women. Most couples are in their mid-30s, and on a Saturday night, like the night I attended, the number of couples in attendance was around 20 couples and then equal amounts of single men and single women, up to about 8 of each. 

With it being a members lifestyle club, you do have to apply online, and for single guys, you also have to attend a brief interview with the hosts before you are granted membership. Membership costs £40 a year, and that is regardless of your gender or relationship status. 

What Events Do They Offer? 

The night I visited was one of the prime nights on the swinger calendar; Halloween.

It provided me with 1) an excellent opportunity to see the club in all its glory and 2) I got to dress up! 

Unlike many clubs that offer themed nights based on kinks, fetishes or sexuality, the hosts at Purple Mamba refrain from offering nights such as BBC night or greedy girl parties and instead emphasise swinger events with live music or social themes. Ticket prices vary for events, but unlike many clubs that charge upwards of £50, the events at purple mamba range from £10 to £35.

Who Visits The Club? 

Mostly couples and a few singles. On the night I attended, there was a mix of experienced swingers and newbies. And an equal amount of single guys and single girls. The members were extremely friendly, and the hosts and more experienced swingers worked hard to make everyone feel relaxed and included. 

Upon arrival, I was given a guided tour and was impressed by the layout, which felt more like a boutique hotel than a club. I was then taken through the rules and safe practices. 

I liked how much emphasis was on safe sex; bowls of condoms and sachets of lube were in every room, as were wet wipes, tissues and towels. There were also bathrobes and massage oil available in one room.

What Facilities Are Available?

In a word. Amazing. From the minute I stepped foot inside, I was surrounded by the luxurious decor, sumptuous satin sheets and plump, playful pillows. And that was before I got to the specialised rooms! The first stop on my tour was the lounge/ social area, where later, I got involved in a pretty intimate card game! 

With comfortable sofas, soft lighting and plush cushions, the lounge was a popular choice for couples making conversation and flirting as well as a cosy spot for sipping a G&T whilst taking time out! The next stop was the orgy room. Unlike other orgy rooms I had been in, this one was a much more cosier affair. With porn being projected onto one wall/ceiling and enough room for about 12 people, I saw four couples in various positions looking extremely satisfied! 

Further along the landing, there was a red bedroom, which I later put to good use. You can read about that here. A small but by no means ill equipt dungeon room was next for my inspection, and I was delighted to see an array of impact toys ready and waiting to be used. 

Several couples used the dungeon, and I saw a lady in the gyno chair, whilst another was cuffed to the st Andrews cross. Also, in the dungeon room, I found a spanking bench, grope hole, and torture chair. The whole set-up had a feel of a victorian sex boutique, and I loved it! Dark velvet curtain, soft candlelight and hardwood canes. Yes sir! 

Probably one of my favourites in this club, and in just about any club that I’ve visited, was the two female glory holes. What are these? I hear you ask? Well, imagine a cupboard built into the wall, and inside that cupboard, it’s padded and plush and cosy. The doors have curtains across the bottom, allowing the lady to lie back in complete comfort whilst placing her legs in stirrups, and if she just so happens to be shut in there with another lady, oh, the possibilities are endless! The last room was another extremely luxurious bedroom, and I found a blindfold, fluffy towels, toys, condoms and body oil all neatly arranged and awaiting use! 

As well as these upstairs play areas, Purple Mamba also have a well-stocked and sociable bar area, a downstairs lounge (where there was live music), lockers and two toilets. 

Did I Feel Safe? 

As a single female, safety is very important to me, and I’m always conscious of how clubs aim to keep their guests safe. Although there isn’t any dedicated security on the door, the hosts and staff regularly check through the venue to ensure all guests are safe and comfortable. I have been in situations where I have been followed around clubs and made to feel like an exhibit.

However, at Purple Mamba, safety is one of their main concerns, and they have strict rules on private playrooms and curtains that you can pull across doorways if you wish and chains to hook across if you wish to signify to other people you dont want to be disturbed. 

At no point during the night did I feel uncomfortable, and the relaxed and intimate atmosphere gave the whole venue a cosy feeling. Unlike some other upmarket venues, which are much bigger, in Purple Mamba, I found it impossible not to relax into the evening; I wasn’t worried about my safety or the safety of my belongings. 

What Else Do They Offer? 

Another great thing about Purple Mamba is that they pride themselves on being educators and club owners. It’s something that owner Amanda feels very passionately about.

She hosts workshops during the week for single guys, single girls and couples. You don’t have to be a member to attend a workshop; you can just be curious about the lifestyle. They are also keen on promoting safe sex and educating people about the importance of having safe sex.

I don’t think I have ever seen so many condoms and lubes! It made me feel safe knowing that there was no reason that anyone wouldn’t have a condom. As well as Amandas ‘Newbie Workshops,’ she also organises Erotic book club evenings, erotic massage workshops and live music nights, and a pub quiz and play on a Sunday. 

How Did I Find Them?

The club is located in West Bridgeford in Nottingham, close to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground. I took a taxi from the hotel as I was staying in Nottingham that night at the Lace Market Hotel. However, I could easily have gotten the train there and back from Sheffield, as it’s only about 45 minutes. There is also a tram system in Nottingham, and any trams or buses that are heading to Trent bridge are sure to stop close by.

As for the club itself, look for the Bombay Restaurant on Radcliffe Road, the venue is situated just behind it. You can see the ‘Purple Mamba’ signs from the street. There is parking opposite if you choose to drive, but you may have to pay for that.  

Where Did I Stay?

I chose to stay at the Lace market hotel for this visit, who were extremely hospitable and very accomodating. I enjoyed my stay so much that I decided to write a dedicated review! You can read that review here! From my arrival at the hotel to helping me take some great photographs of my outfit. They even arranged a taxi for my trip to the club. The Lace Market Hotel is a gem of a find. 

Why Do I Recommend The Purple Mamba Club? 

As it is a members-only lifestyle club, I found the vibe quite different from others I have experienced. There was a lot of emphasis on safe sex, and for new couples or couples who love the social aspect of swinging, this club will tick all the boxes! It’s so relaxing and sumptuous; you can’t help but want to sink into the sofas and get sexy with the other guests. I loved that in this club, there was no ‘dress down by xx time rule’. There appeared to be a wide mix of established swingers and less experienced couples, but everyone was extremely sociable and down to earth. There were no ‘swinger power couples’, and the members were real people with real bodies. 

Who Wouldnt I Recommend This Club For?

If mass gangbangs or greedy girl nights are your things, or you are looking for a club where you can play pretty much straight away, then Purple Mamba isn’t for you. There’s a reason that there is so much emphasis on the social side of swinging. With it being a members club, you are expected to join in with the conversation and become part of the community if you want to play with people. Also, it’s much more intimate than other clubs, so don’t expect a sprawling mass orgy style night. 

Will I Be Back To Purple Mamba?

Hell yeah! I can’t believe I have such a gem of a club right on my doorstep! Next time, however, I’m heading to the female Glory hole!
