About 616

616 was started in the ‘90s and changed ownership several times before we started attending in 2010.
In January 2012, we became the new owners and began to make changes.
We have come a long way in making 616 more than just a party.
616 is a lifestyle community that welcomes couples, single females, and sponsored single males from the swing, kink, BDSM, and poly communities.
We hoped to create a space within 616 that encourages exploration, honest and open communication, setting and honoring personal boundaries, with strict consent practices to keep everyone safe.
As long as everyone is safe, sane, and consensual, there is no judgment.
We hope to bring couples closer together by helping them be completely honest with each other about their desires, wishes, hopes, and needs.
Our core members look out for each other and new members. They are willing and excited to share advice and stories to help newer members find what they are looking for while encouraging them to explore all of the options that appeal to them.
We have a wide range of members with many different interests and experiences to get to know and learn from.
It would be hard to find a more uplifting, accepting, honest group of new friends. We cannot wait to have you join us!

What’s the secret to having a great time at 616?

One of our members has some advice:

"There's something that I first noticed at parties after 3 or 4 years, and it's an elusive thing. Every club and party has its own energy, for lack of a better term. The energy takes on the personality of the hosts, but it's the collective energy of everyone there. The personality of a club's energy is more or less consistent and it only changes or grows as the hosts do, and change takes time. If the hosts are positive and welcoming, they attract positive and welcoming people and behavior from guests that reinforce those energies. If the hosts are catty or manipulate drama, the party is a magnet for drama and for those energies.

The mood of the energy changes from party to party within the same club and is affected by everyone there. The hosts set the tone, but the guests make the party. The most vocal people have the strongest effect- whether they bring drama or are welcoming. When great things happen at a party, the party is great. When something bad happens, like a fight or drama, it can put a damper on the whole night.

Once I started to see this, I realized that the more hands I shook, the better the party, for me anyway. But eventually I realized that if I introduced people around, the welcoming energy became contagious, and the collective mood of the party could begin to change, which is a rush. It can be draining at times, but when it clicks, it's a rush.

So I began trying it out more deliberately and experimenting and saw it could work at smaller parties of under a hundred and slowly started seeing it having an effect at larger ones. Just as a fight can affect the whole night, putting out welcoming energy can have an observable impact. You just have to really "put yourself out there."

The secret? Shaking lots of hands, meeting lots of people, breaking out of cliques, introducing people around. That's really all it is.

Some people want to be the "life of the party." I've tried that. Whenever you try that, you'll flop- at least for that party. Because the "life of the party" is not a person but everyone. It has to be because if it's about you, you close yourself off from that social, collective energy. It's not intrinsic but extrinsic.

There are people who get this and more who get it subconsciously, I think: the party is not about you. It's about everyone- the good, the bad, the ugly, the rock stars and the wallflowers. Including the wallflowers to the extent they're comfortable has a wonderful impact as well.

These energies are present in everything to small munches to the largest parties. It's easier to connect with and influence the energy of smaller events, as the energy at larger events can become more diluted, but the energies are always there. Feeling that energy is a large part of why we socialize.

If you're curious, look for it- the energies, the personalities, the moods. If you're an empathic person, maybe connect with it. Or you could work the room and see how a welcoming energy is contagious. Maybe this idea seems kinda out there. Energies, personalities, moods- it's all just words- metaphors for something I can't put my finger on and explain concretely because it's not a concrete thing. But it's there and it's an incredible rush.

Just my two cents."
