The Hedonism II Resort in Negril, Jamaica reopened last month under new coronavirus health restrictions. Prior to the outbreak, the hotel, touted as an 'adult playground', was known for offering 'the sexiest hedo experience' where guests are encouraged to ditch their clothes and let loose under the Caribbean sun. The resort has become a swingers' paradise since its rebranding in 1981, attracting travelers from all over the world who identify as 'consensually nonmonogamous', to meet others with similar lifestyles. But as Jamaica reopened its borders last month, resort owners were faced with the challenge of having to adapt to the new era of social distancing, while still keeping in line with Hedonism's 'be wicked' mantra. The ongoing pandemic means that some of the resort's most popular activities and attractions that involve close contact - and intimacy - such as its sexy foam parties
