Swingfields – often dubbed "the biggest sex festival in Europe" – is returning to the British countryside this week.
The event, which has been running since 2013, will take place between July 4 and July 7.
Hundreds of revellers are set to congregate in a secret location to celebrate the swinging community.
Tickets, which are apparently selling out fast, can be snapped up for £170 for couples.

At first glance, Swingfields looks like any other festival.
Guests buy tickets from £170, before descending on a location that’s revealed in the days before the event.
On arrival they go through security and set up camp for three days.
Live music, BBQs and themed evenings provide entertainment for festivalgoers.
But the main focus of Swingfields is the swinging lifestyle.
While Swingfields bosses say it's “not a sex festival”, people can have sex and it is only open to swingers.
The official website reveals: “This event was originally designed to offer a safe and secure event for those in the lifestyle.
“By 2016 it had evolved into an event that broadly encompassed all adult communities and the LGBT groups.
“This award winning adult only event aims to offer an event where you can relax and enjoy the structured entertainment programme, listen to live music and leading club DJ’s, join in the fun competitions, or just simply fire up the barbecue and get to know people.
“The weekend offers something for everybody including demos and workshops, a themed evening to dress up if you wish and let your imagination run wild or perhaps sitting watching the sun go down in our stunning countryside location.”
The Swingfields website implies sex will be on the cards for a lot of revellers, but it tells guests to “make no assumptions”.
The guide adds: “This is NOT a ‘meat market’, so if you spend time being fun, social and make the effort to mingle you will have a lovely event.
“You must make the effort yourself. If you sit and wait then little will happen.”
Swingfields offers advice on group sex, partner swapping and “bare back” romps – but it doesn’t offer any “sexual services”.
The website adds: “People have sex in a consenting way at all festivals, in hotels, homes, cars and basically anywhere they choose.
“This festival is to provide a safe private event focused on (those in the lifestyle community, LGBT and Fet groups).
“We don’t provide any sexual services.
“We provide the event that guests want, music, facilities, entertainment, comedy, food, bars, and all fully licensed and approved by the local Police and Council, as well as great value for money.”
Last year, Swingfields took place in Malvern, Glouchestershire.
The 700 revellers were not told where the raunchy festival was being held until 48 hours before the start.
In 2017, the festival was even cancelled due to negative press and noise complaints from ”disgruntled villagers”.
