Adult Dating in Essex Is Probably About As Good As It Gets

Essex is one of the most densely populated counties in Britain. It is also one of the most active counties for swinger parties and adult dating fun. Nearly 1.8 million people live in Essex and there is an average population of 1200 people to the square mile. This is the kind of statistic that should be music to the ears of any single or couple looking for an abundance of adult fun contacts and parties.

There are many areas of Essex that can be described as adult dating hot-spots. The area of the county town of Chelmsford has always been one of them, with many adult party venues flourishing there over the years. The Romford area is another, having at least three regular venues at the time of writing this article. Even the villages of Essex have hosted more than their fair share of swinger parties over the years and all of the major ones provide plenty of dating activity most of the time.

The close proximity of Essex to London is another factor in making the county such a good one for adult fun seekers to live in. Practically all of the big London clubs and party venues are less than hour away.

It is only possible to estimate how much swinging goes on in Essex by looking at counting the numbers of contact adverts showing for the county on leading swinger and dating clubs. One of the most popular adult dating and swinger clubs, has a successful postal and non-internet division whose numbers of members I also took into account.

Quite a few singles and couples sign up with three or four of the larger adult dating sites at the same time. This was allowed for when calculating the total number of people on the adult dating scene for the county.

According to this method of reckoning, my educated guess of the numbers of swingers / adult dating site users active in adult dating in the county is somewhere in the region of 1800. This is composed of 45% couples, 30% single males and25% single females

These figures should inspire both singles and couples who would like to enjoy adult dating in Essex, by confirming that the region offers some of the best opportunities anywhere in the U.K.

In addition to the abundance of adult contacts, Essex also offers the established adult party club venues described above. Many more seasoned swingers however, consider that the most successful parties are more often than not those that take place in the homes of other swingers.

The opening move to receiving invitations to these, privately hosted adult parties in Essex, is to join with a top adult dating club. Take some time and care to write your profile then start building a popular presence on the site. In order to achieve this, you’ll have to be fully geared up to spend a great deal of time and energy logged into the site getting involved in chat rooms and forums. There are a number of advice articles that are for both members and site visitors. The articles will help you acquire the secrets of creating an appealing online personality.

What University Has the Highest Enrollment?

In June The Times released The Good University Guide 2009 which ranks the top Universities in the UK on such factors as student satisfaction, research quality, and the ratio between students and staff. Although many elements must be taken into account when deciding which institution to apply for, it occurred to me that one of the most popular questions asked online concerns simply the number of students enrolling at our universities. The following discusses a selection of the listed universities in regards to their Times rankings, as well as the number of students enrolling.

Imperial College London. The highest ranking of the big city colleges, The Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine has held its spot at number three for another year in The Times rankings. Founded just over a hundred years ago, as the college turned a century there were 13,410 students in total with 5,060 studying at postgraduate level. The institution is located in South Kensington and the current acceptance rate of undergraduate admissions is 17.5 per cent.

University of Birmingham. In terms of the second most highly populated city in England, The University of Birmingham currently ranks the highest according to The Times at number 25. In comparison to Imperial the student staff ratio is lower but the intake of students is far greater. In the year 06/07 the total amount of students was 30,415 with 11,935 taking postgraduate studies. As of 2008, the institution has now split into five colleges, each with its own specialism.

University of Essex. So to find the better student to staff ratio should you choose to enroll at a smaller university? The up and coming University of Essex follows this rule with a ratio of 14.1 students per staff member. The Higher Education Statistic Agency published that for 2006 – 2007 there were 11,660 students in total with 3,305 postgraduates enrolled. Although a relatively young university, the institution is also becoming highly regarded in terms of online education.

University of Oxford. The highest ranking according to The Times, the University of Oxford remains at number one for another year. This honour comes from a combination of a good student to staff ratio of 11.6 and a very high satisfaction percentage among students at 84 per cent. From 2006 to 2007 there were 19,070 students in total with over a third being postgraduates. Acceptance of students from state schools in 2006 was 25 per cent.

Connecticut’s Best Communities: Essex CT

Essex, Connecticut was in the top of “The Best 100 Small Towns in America” by Norman Crompton. Its high rating reflects a combination of factors, including education, low crime rates, annual growth, prosperity and income.

Dating back to the mid-17th century, Essex sits on the west bank of the Connecticut River, 6 miles upstream from Long Island Sound. It includes the villages of Ivoryton and Centerbrook. Today, Essex retains its early 18th century New England village charm with its tree-lined streets and heritage.

The area known today as Essex Village was originally named Potapoug Point that’s a peninsula with two large coves on either side. Shipbuilding which played a central role in the early development of the community first began in the area in 1720 by John Tucker.

By the 1740s “Snows” for the West Indies trade were being built that was a distinctive New England vessel with two main foremasts and a small mizzen mast astern. When the American Revolution broke out in 1775, Uriah Hayden built the “Oliver Cromwell” which was a man-of-war carrying twenty-four guns that was the first warship ever built for the Continental forces.

During the War of 1812, the town’s shipyards was one of the few American cities that received a major attack by the British. The British blockaded the Connecticut River which had a major economic impact on Essex shipbuilding.

The shipyards turned to building small fast ships that were used as privateers that could overcome the larger slower British merchant ships. Captain Richard Hayden was a prominent local shipbuilder who advertised the Black Prince he was building in a New York City newspaper as “a 315 ton sharp schooner that would make an ideal privateer.”

The British spied the shipyards. In the early morning hours of April 8th, 1814, about 136 British marines and sailors from four warships under the command of Richard Coot rowed six boats up the Connecticut River arriving at the shipyards at four o’clock in the morning.

The Marines quickly gained control of the town, receiving a promise of no resistance from the local militia in return for not burning their homes or harming the town’s people. The Marines and sailors went to work with torches and axes burning and destroying the newly built privateers being readied for sail in the harbor.

They marched to Bushnell Tavern – now the Griswold Inn one of Essex’s several historic houses – and the Hartford Courant later reported that “$100,000 or upwards” worth of rum was captured. The British also seized the town’s supply of rope that was of strategic value as each ship required about seven miles of rope to sail.

After six hours the British had destroyed a total of 28 ships inflicting a major defeat against the Americans before setting off downstream towing two captured ships – one of which was the Black Prince that is believed to have initiated the raid.

However, the British became mired in the shallows as the tide dropped and came under fire from the residents of Killingworth who lined the river bank, killing two marines and causing the British to destroy the ships. They finally made their escape with the rising tide.

Following the raid and perhaps as a response to the notoriety the town had gained with its less than heroic defense the town’s name was forever after changed to Essex. Today, The Connecticut River Museum is located at the site where Coot and the British landed. It houses an exhibit portraying the raid with a large diorama and a musket ball believed to have been fired at that time.

There are many leisure and cultural activities in Essex. Summer recreation activities abound along the coast along with summer house rentals. The town promotes and maintains beaches, and boating and fishing areas. Attractions such as the 1920s Essex Steam Train and Riverboat are among Connecticut’s most popular tourist stops.

Essex village’s traditional New England charm and heritage makes it one of Connecticut’s best cities for your home and family.
