Welcome to Hedonism

Did you see these ads along Second Avenue near Sixth Street (or was it Fourth Street?) for Hedonism Resorts in Jamaica?



Per their Web site:

Sleep in. Stay up late. Give up counting calories. Have a drink before noon. Give up mineral water. Dine in shorts. Talk to strangers. Don't make your bed. Go skinny dipping. Don't call your mother. Let your hair down. Don't pay for anything. Don't leave a tip. Be your beautiful self ...

Hedonism is a sandbox for your inner child, nourishment for the mind, body, spirit and soul. Pleasure comes in many forms. Choose one. Or two. Or more. And with absolutely everything included in one upfront price you never have to think about money. Not even tips. Just what to do next. And when.


Do we really need to travel to Hedonism Resorts to see activities like this?

When I lived in the UK, I saw these ads everywhere. I can think of nothing worse than being trapped on an island with the people who would actually pay for this.

And dining in shorts is so hedonistic!

I've been there (once upon a time it was for my job) and it's kind of like SuperDive meets the trailer park, but naked.

Fun was had by all (if you don't count those who missed all the fun because they were in an alcoholic blackout) and complaints were quite rare compared to other nearby resorts.

Funny, I was kind of thinking Superdive when I saw the ad...

Pics or it didn't happen! ;)

Oh if only there was digital in the early 90's. But finding an actual photo and scanning it, now that would be an accomplishment!
