The new phenomenon of Gran Canaria is called Black Bulldog Bar, a little pub close to the German drinking area, on the first floor of the Cita Shopping Center. Also worth a visit to get to know the friendly and affable staff.
As I said, it would be a simple bar, open and visible to all in a very crowded area, in front of the Cita bathrooms. In essence, however, it has revolutionized several stereotypes with its unexpected success, since it is not a particularly attractive location. The difference that made “bingo” to this northern european couple who manage it was the objective ability and skill of the barman, the excellent quality of the cocktails (at very low cost) but above all the permanent presence of some Italian couples, beautiful and nice, with a very "open" mentality, in some cases perhaps too much.
Jam, as we know, attracts gluttons and the emulative spirit multiplies the effects of behavior. In fact this happened to the Black Bulldog making it, in a period of time constraints for all the clubs (mandatory closing at midnight and then two o'clock, due to covid), the reference point of the swinger nightlife of the island and of the upholstery made up of singles that rotate around complacent couples. In other words, every now and then there is a low-cost but high-yield "fiesta" in the club for everyone, couples and singles alike. Not being a private club, full sex should not be allowed, in reality oral sex cold be practiced, together with nudity and deep groping, the minimum distance from the bathrooms also makes it possible to go further if you want.
What is the problem? First of all that there is a problem can be perceived from the fact that it is the only place that has had to be equipped with Security Personal, also because one turns a blind eye to what is happening; then the possibility of sometimes finding easy sex at the cost of a couple of drinks (this is the average investment: 5 euros) which has attracted singles like flies and many couples who accept them out of pure emulative spirit. In fact, security tries to control the influx of single men but does not always succeed.
All this, if you continue with the tolerance I have witnessed, will be short-lived for me. In fact, the Black Bulldog violates the essential paradigm that the swinger world wants to be maintained economically by single men - financiers. These, in fact, could begin to delude themselves that they can abdicate this fundamental role to integrate with those who get involved as a couple with the associated risks. Furthermore, the saying that sex costs and that cheap sex must be of low quality, which is not always true of the Black Bulldog, where instead it happens that "pearls to pigs" are distributed, offending the rule that imposes a ticket of entrance to participate in the party, ticket consisting of being a couple or paying a high price. The violation of these rules makes the competition "unfair" and distributes "mental passports" to those who should think about organizing themselves to play even.
I would like to clarify that having been in Gran Canaria alone for a certain period, I very much appreciated this alternative which allowed me to spend beautiful evenings. However, I remain of the idea that it is a harmful model when explicit sex is also combined with exhibitionism. The scheme cannot be "this is a bar .." because in fact in those moments it is not only that, it violates public rules and private ones, ethically and commercially prohibited. The worst thing is that it creates disincentives for single men who believe, even for just one evening, that they are part of a world that instead can belong to them only if they pay dearly for it or if they adapt by questioning their selfishness, involving their own wives and partners who, like all the ladies who hang out with the Black Bulldog, would find real robust and colorful males to satisfy them.
Without prejudice to the aforementioned considerations, it is a place to visit and if there are no degenerations towards the private club model it is very fun especially for the guaranteed socialization between couples, who can experience an important moment of knowledge that can have developments in dedicated places.
