The VIP clubs -- which 'swingers' describe as akin to a 'freemason' society where members swear under oath not to reveal the identities or details of those involved -- are one of the groups that have been unearthed as part of an investigation into Ireland's secret sex lives.
The TV3 programme, which includes footage of 'swinging' events, where consenting couples swop partners, is part of the controversial new Paul Connolly investigates series.

With 60,000 registered Irish users on no-strings casual sex websites, TV3's newest presenter was also shocked to see the number of women involved.
"Women take it very seriously, meeting up to eight men a week, sometimes a couple a day. Whereas men just seem to dip their toe in and out of the water.

As one Dublin woman who regularly uses the websites describes in the documentary: "In the last 12 months I have met 25 men through the website from the comfort of my own home. Sometimes I'd do it twice a week, maybe twice a night. It all depends." The sub-culture of 'dogging' -- which involves couples or singles having sex in parked cars whilst others watch -- was also looked at as part of the investigation.
