The Best Adult and Swinger Clubs in New Zealand

Although New Zealand is a relatively progressive society in terms of its acceptance and portrayal of sexuality in popular culture, there are surprisingly few venues in the country for adult entertainment.

If you are interested in visiting a sex club or erotic venue on your trip to New Zealand, your best bet is to head into one of the major cities as the options are virtually non-existent in smaller towns and rural communities. Not surprisingly, Auckland offers the greatest selection, but even this large city only has a few venues for swingers.

Although public clubs may be sparse, it also should be noted that prostitution is legal in New Zealand. However, if you're looking for a place for consensual yet salacious fun, these adult and swinger clubs in New Zealand are organized by their location, from north to south.

    Describing itself as Auckland's most "stylish" erotic club, CCK Lounge Bar is a small and relatively intimate venue with a limited number of rooms. However, the venue is well-maintained, clean, and safe thanks to strict guidelines on etiquette and a seasoned staff.

    A high standard of dress is also expected, and there is a strict admission policy, which only includes couples and single females on most nights of the week​ (single men may only enter on Wednesdays). Special nights are held for couples to meet single men or women, and CCK also hosts theme party weekends throughout the year.

    This small club has something of a mixed reputation. It is notable for being the only club to allow single men every night it is open and offers the use of its showers to patrons.

    However, with 2,150 square feet of curated play space including a full bar, several large televisions, multiple showers, a stripper pole, and full-length mirrors, this club is the perfect venue in West Auckland to explore your sexuality safely and discreetly.

    The Desire Love Motel is based on the South American and Asian model of renting rooms to couples only by the hour. The rooms come complete with jacuzzis and spa baths, adding to their romantic factor. Although not strictly an adult club, it does host regular party nights. It is situated on Auckland's North Shore, a short car or taxi ride from the center of the city.

    Silverado operates as a private club, which means that membership is granted to couples (and select singles) pending the approval of their application. It also hosts parties twice a month on Fridays or Saturdays, but an invitation and reservations are required to attend. However, despite its exclusivity, this well-established club is properly licensed, operates inside a gated and fenced location (which is shared only after your application is approved), and is perhaps the safest place in New Zealand to explore this type of venue.

    The devastating earthquakes experienced by Christchurch in 2010 and 2011 saw the end of the city's most successful swingers club, Club SE. Tawse Manor picked up the pieces by offering regular events that cater mainly to couples. The premises are located in a private homestay in North Canterbury, about 30 minutes from the center of Christchurch. It also offers accommodation and meals in an adult-themed environment. Couples and single females have open admission, and single males are admitted by prior arrangement.

    Tawse Manor closed in January of 2018 to move to Dunedin, five hours south of Christchurch. It is expected to reopen in 2019 or 2020.
