What On Earth Is Hedonism?

Tue Sep 16, 2003 11:33 pm

I thought that you folks may know the answer to this.

My 24-year old cousin is out vacationing in Jamaica at one of those Hedonism resorts (I don't know if its I, II, or III). His mother is beside herself. Although, I don't think its any of her business what her 24 year old adult son does, I'm fond of both these people. I told her that it was just a beach resort but I've heard conflicting reports such as the following:

a. Its a big orgy
b. Its a big orgy for old men and young women
c. Its a big orgy for swingers with leathery skin and sagging body parts
d. Its a big orgy attracting old women in the hunt for young studs.
e. Its a big dud.

Given that we all thought the boy was as queer as a two-dollar bill, we were mighty surprised that he is out cavorting with nubile bimbos in Jamaica. In any case, has anyone had any experience with these resorts? Or should I just tell Mom to mind her own goddamned business and leave her son alone?

It's difficult, basically I'd tell them to mind their own business, that's the easiest way out!

Now if you fell the need to know what is going on, imagine it like this:

It's an individually weighted a+b+c+d version with a good chance of e happening.

What does that mean: It's basically a clothing optional beach resort with a swinger club (swing as in lifestyle!!) attached, with single men allowed to attend.

Now if the boy is really gay, he'll probably have not much fun, usually gay contact are pretty much "outlawed" in these places. It makes things easier for him, if he doesn't mind working on a lady with other guys doing the same...if you know what I mean...

If he likes to go for girls, well, it depends what sort of girl he fancies: The young and pretty ones...forget it!

The older and sexually highly active ones...these are ones attending for sure.

As far as age is concerned, he'll be one if the youngest for sure.

One thing I cannot comment on: I hear there are increasingly bunches of people mainly from the USA attending, that see the whole thing more in spring break tradition, that is, drinking like crazy, party all the time, but in general not running around naked but always interested in watching such activity. If this is true, then a lot of sexual fun is replaced by a lot of Daytona Beach sort of fun.

In general: Wait until he returns and tell us every word he says.

And calm down his mother...there are condoms everywhere, hopefully he knows how to use them... Big grin

My cousin went to one of those in Mexico. He said it sucked big time, it wasnt what he was expecting. He said he was expecting good-looking girls his age (23-24), but instead was treated to "Guido Beach." A bunch of washed up, perverted thirty somethings from Jersey and Long Island.

Hm, maybe Andreas* has first hand knowledge Big grin but I would indeed say it's a dude ranch. Originally, a hedonist devotes his life to the pursuit of pleasure.
Maybe you could tell his mother that

a) everyone does that when he/she is on vacation
b) hedonism is an antique philosophy, therefore a hedonist is interested in Greek philosophers. Or
c) that hedonism is a very patriotic commitment to the xy-amendment (?) which says that everyone has a right to happiness.

* Edit: or JCS for that matter Big grin

Is it not some big nudist camp, but full of old timers?

This is a bastardisation of what hedonism really is.
I am a true hedonist and I wouldn't waste my time and money on this crap.
This is nothing but a way to lure guys in there 20s to come down and spend money.

Interesting posts, indicating mainly that no one here knows really what Hedonism in Jaysit's sense is.

First of all, we are talking about several Beach resorts on Jamaica, that carry the name Hedonism.

2. I know the place, and it is as described above, and it's always big fun to hear what people have to say who just want to see their nicks on the screen.

3. 2 days is more than enough to do, what is really fun there, the rest is about as nice as a week on Ballermann, German members will know what I'm talking about.

4. Clientele is 90% American, and the ladies do have the hots for European guys, that much is certain Big grin Big grin Big grin

5. To all you Brits out there who want some taste: Go to France, Cap D'Agde, much closer to get there, and the ongoings there are a lot funnier..for about 1 day, to stay longer is a waste of time.

6. Oh and btw: If some of you guys have problems picking up girls, don't ever think this is the solution to your problem...even at Hedonism, you won't be able to score!!!

Agreed, that wasn't very nice.

Just read what you meant...Good Lord, these people must have an inferiority complex as big as the whole Himalaya, just waiting to jump on non-sensical news to pour out their rage.

And as far as that article is concerned: It's a good example of how to bend and stretch facts far enough to come up with a totally twisted picture...disgusting!!!

I'll leave the laxative, there are much better substances for any such people!

Oh oh, that really got to you, right? Hurt your little heart so badly, that you felt the need to lash out in a personal way...well, I hope you feel better now, now get back to your brilliant experience-based analysis of what is going on in the world....and leave the humorous part of life to those who understand it.
