Wales had entered its first national “firebreak” lockdown, just a month after a sex festival was held near a major Welsh city.
Correctly speaking, it was a swinger’s festival, for married couples, single men and single women who enjoy the “swinging” lifestyle. “That involves exactly what you suspect – hook ups in tents,” confirmed a source who wishes to remain anonymous. The camping fields must have been heaving with sounds of sex and boozing but that is hardly any different to what you would find at any major music festival, though our source, aged 48, confirmed, “obviously a swingers festival is designed for one very specific purpose…”
Any one of the 1,600 atendees will tell you the festival was a chance to meet up with like-minded people in a relaxed, non-judgemental atmosphere. Any one of the honest 1,600 atendees will tell you it was about hooking up with strangers. “I met a girl around the fire,” said our source, “we got chatting. She asked if I had my own tent. I said I did. Soon we’d zipped up the tent and got to know eachother…all night long.”
The centrepiece of the evenings was a huge camp fire with people sitting around it drinking and doing all the other things you would do around a camp fire, except a lot of people obviously had their hands inside theirs, or other peoples’ clothes. Some face masks were worn but were not mandatory.
One of the attendees has spoken to No Script For Life, telling us, “there was social distancing and face masks. But around the camp fire people lost their inhibitions.” Which surely is the point of a communal fire at a swingers fest? “It wasn’t open to just everyone,” he continues, ” it was a private, invitation-only gathering.”
No Script For Life can confirm the festival was held on private land near the Welsh city of Swansea. But how did this gathering go unnoticed by local residesnts or the police?
Taking place during the late summer peak of the a pandemic, it may have contributed to helping spread the new COVID-19 variation across the UK, likely making the festival a contributing factor in the risk and misery suffered by thousands of businesses and millions of working people. Those attending the swingers festival came from as far away as Glasgow, London, Gloucester and Liverpool. Liverpool was an area that was devestated by a surge of cases in the following weeks which led to mass testing by the British army and strict lockdown measures. The festival would not be the only reason for the lockdowns in these areas, but you probaby don’t have to be a scientist to understand the rise in cases this must have led to.
On 30th June Wales Online reported the festival had been cancelled and ticket holders refunded, however what they describe as ‘the biggest swingers’ festival in Europe’ did in fact go ahead in mid-September.
If you are in lockdown in the UK today, it is because gatherings such as the swinger’s festival took place quietly and with no police intervention. A gathering this size was against all the regulations in Wales, even in the between-lockdown months. How it was allowed to go ahead is something that should be investigated, but the question of how 1,600 people could be so reckless, irresponsible and selfish is a question that only they can answer. Our source expressed no sorrow or regret but admits “it was a bit dodgy, probably”.
