Having only been into the party scene a relatively short time, my first party was when LMP came to Birmingham so about a year ago.
After my first party I realised this was something I really enjoyed and started going to as many parties I could, I started doing LMP in Birmingham, Bristol and was planning Manchester. I also have tried Hush, Fuckclub, and Debbies greedy girl parties and got the impression of a very vibrant scene.
However in the short period of a year to me it seems the scene is experiencing a decline, Birmingham has lost LMP, Hush has not updated it's AW account since March. Hush use to throw parties in Nottingham, Milton Keynes and Birmingham. The events at Tudor Lounge in Birmingham when masked men raided an event there has not helped the scene as 3 party organisers have stopped using the venue. Debbie, Fuckclub and Demi Monde. The closure of Lmp in London just before Christmas and it appears London has lost a few others over recent years. Now I Know Phoenix has arisen from the ashes of LMP but having recently taken a trip to London to visit Phoenix I get the impression it may be struggling to attract the volume of party goers that LMP was achiving.
The party I attended had only four girls from the line up of six advertised and four party goers. If it's your first party you would find this ratio excellent, however I'm sure I'm not alone in preferring a busier party with more girls and more people to get the party vibe and sexual tension going. To me the busier parties have been my favourite.
I have been PMed by a regular at the old LMP and the new Phoenix and it appears that my party is now the norm compared to the old LMP where a 8th girl would have to sometimes be drafted in.
Now it doesn't take much to work out that four guys at a party is not sustainable as a business model with the cost of renting premises, paying hostess and other sundry costs.
So what is causing this decline is it the new membership system putting guys off or is it the lack of people knowing about the club.
For me I hope we are not witnessing the slow end to one of the best party organisers. So guys if we want to keep the scene alive we have to go to the parties.
