In order to provide for the maximum comfort of our
Members, we have designated certain areas of the Club
for specific activities:
Social Spaces - Nudity and intimate activity are not
permitted in social space. These areas are reserved for
conversation, introductions, and social interaction. It
provides the perfect opportunity to meet people with
similar interests or to discuss new interests without
judgment, pressure or presumption.
Play Spaces - These are areas in which nudity and
intimate activity are allowed, but not required. Members
may participate in group, couple, or individual intimate
activities in these areas. Please do not bring food into
the Play Space.

In addition to the regular parties (we hold between four
and six each month), the Black Key Club sponsors a
variety of different kinds of events.
We teach classes on everything from BDSM for Beginners
to The Art of the Striptease to Erotic Foods. Classes
are generally held on Saturday afternoons, before an
evening event. Classes have a fee for attending (which
varies from class to class) and usually have limited
spaces, so require signing up in advance.

Can't get enough of the Black Key Club lifestyle?
Neither can we. That's why we're trying to put together
plans for a Club trip. The details are still up in the
air, but you can be certain it'll be someplace exciting,
relaxing, unusual, and very romantic.
Q. ARE YOU SURE THIS IS LEGAL?
In March 2002, the Providence Police department stopped
by. They had read our website and were concerned that we
were violating some of the licensing laws of the city (for
example, that we were selling alcohol). They were not
there because swing clubs are illegal, nor were they
there to shut us down. They were very polite, and said
that they understood that this was a lifestyle club and
that they wanted to avoid disrupting the party. After a
quick conversation, Mike and Scratch decided to let them
into the club. They declined, saying that they really
didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable. We scheduled
an appointment with the two officers for the following
Monday morning. On Monday, March 25, 2002, we met with
thems at the club. They did a walkthrough that lasted
about 15 minutes, decided that there were no licensing
violations going on, and thanked us for our cooperation.
All in all, we were pretty pleased with the experience
-- and we haven't seen the police since.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you
that all activities at the Black Key Club are 100% legal.
The inverse of that is that no illegal activities of any
kind will be tolerated at the club. Certain illegal
activities are grounds for expulsion from the club.
Others, such as drug use, will get you held until the
police arrive. We have an excellent relationship with
the local police and intend to maintain it.
Q. Where is the Black Key Club Located?

Q. What is the difference between an Adult Lifestyles
Club and a Swinger's Party?
An Adult Lifestyles Club caters to many different
aspects of adult sexuality, where traditional swingers
parties primarily cater to heterosexual encounters
between couples and single females. As an example, an
Adult Lifestyles Club may include heterosexuals,
bisexual and gay males and females, transgendered
persons, and those interested in fetish (bd/sm, body
worship, and just about anything else thats legal!). The
mission of the Black Key Club is to provide a safe, sane,
non-judgmental atmosphere in which consenting adults may
explore their sexuality at their own pace.
Q. When are the parties?

month, usually on Friday and Saturday evenings from
