A key Party (eng. Key party ) is a mostly private event, be determined at the draw by partners for one night.
As a rule, the party is organized in such a way that the men put their car or apartment keys in an urn on arrival. At the end of the party, the women then pull a key and thus determine the man with whom they will have sexual intercourse after the party. The event is therefore usually assigned to swing .
