FORT WAYNE, Ind (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Almost half of you who responded to our Indiana NewsCenter online poll dealing with swingers' clubs say it was okay for there to be a swingers' club in your community.

A report Wednesday by Indiana's NewsCenter focused on one such club located in Fort Wayne. To watch the story on Club Utopia click here.

Our online poll asked the question "Would you approve of a swingers' club in your community" 49% said Yes, while 51% said no.

The swingers' club is about meeting people and having sex.

Nate from Huntington County wrote: "I think having a private swingers club in the area is ok. They are not doing anything illegal. People have the right to explore and Club Utopia gives them an opportunity to do so."

Another viewer wrote: "It doesn't matter what people want to do as long as they are all willing participants and are not harming anyone in the process."

"The club is private for a reason...the members do not flaunt it is people's faces, so people should stay out of theirs. The media needs to stay out of people's private lives, after all this is a PRIVATE club!!!!!!"

And another viewer wrote: "I think we need clubs that help people - not ones that demoralize them."

And "Happily Married" from Fort Wayne said "My husband and I have been swinging for several years and it has NOTHING to do with a weak relationship or boredom, like Miss Long suggests. We enjoy it because it provides a mutual diversion and enjoyment. We as Americans are guarenteed our Constitutional Right to Assembly. If you want to close a place like Utopia, then you may as well close Piere's and other places like it, because a lot of people of both sexes go to "Regular" clubs with the full intention of finding a sexual partner. Clubs like Utopia provide a SAFE environment for people in the lifestyle and are closely monitored for harassment or drug use and other undesireable activities. Like any other activity that some people object to: the answer is simple...If you don't approve or don't want to participate...DON'T GO."
