|Have A Hot Time at an Adult’s Only
Resort: Hedonism II
Fox's Temptation Island probably
inspired girlfriends, boyfriends and spouses everywhere to question their
mates. Would he? Would she? If on an island with tons of gorgeous men and
women, would I have a chance? Would our relationship exist?
Obviously, these people haven't ventured to
Hedonism II, an "adults only" club in Negril, Jamaica. If you have
ever gone to Hedonism II with your mate, you'd know for sure how he would
behave on Temptation Island.
SuperClubs’ two Hedonism resorts are
probably as close to Temptation Island as you could get. When I arrived to
the resort, a wet T-shirt contest was just about wrapping up. The winner, a
brunette in a bikini, bounced away saying, "oh and I was nervous."
Hedonism II is a place where ordinary people
lose their inhibitions. Teachers, doctors, attorneys and wealthy businessmen
get wild. Hedonism is a cliched tropical paradise with all the food you can
eat and all the liquor you can drink included in the price.
What's more, there are games, adult games and
activities to add to an already sexually charged atmosphere. And of course,
nudity isn't a big deal at Hedonism II. There's a nude beach where just
about anything goes and there’s a prude beach for those who'd rather keep
their clothes on.
Most visitors say that the prude side is
boring and the nude side is where the action is. There's a swim-up bar on
the nude side and a hot tub. And while management doesn’t condone public
sexual contact, it isn't discouraged. Just check out the hot tub after dark.
The entertainment staff, hired to get the
party going, isn’t around the hot tub at night. For example, for the
pajama party, a staffer at the resort showed up wearing a leather thong and
pasties. That's it. Both the male and the female entertainment
staffers flirt, tempt and tease, but they don't cross the line. At least
they don't publicly cross the line.
The rooms, which are moderately furnished,
have mirrors on the ceilings. You aren't supposed to wear anything under
your toga for the toga party. If you sign up for the island picnic, you'll
find out shortly that you’re not in for a family barbecue. Be prepared to
get toasted on Jamaican rum punch or beer while playing stripping games.
Most of the guests are couples. And unless
you are in a rock- solid relationship, be prepared for drama that rivals
Temptation Island, any day. While there, I overheard two couples arguing.
Men abandoned their mates to seek other pleasures. Women did things with
other people they wouldn't think of doing on the mainland in their regular
lives. Hedonism II feels surreal. It is too easy to forget there. It's too
easy to forget yourself and consequences of your actions. Most people who
visit return. I've heard of people crying because they are overcome with
sadness when they must return to reality. One thing is for sure, after my
visit, it's hard to view seemingly prudish people the same way again.
Hedonism II either exposes your true character or changes it. These days,
I'm not so sure which.
