NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- John and Jackie Melfi won several awards at this year's Annual Lifestyle Awards (also known as the "Naughty Awards"), recognizing the nation's top swinger lifestyle parties, clubs, conventions, cruises, resorts and web sites.
The Melfis took home beautiful gold statues for winning the categories of "2016 Lifestyle Club of the Year" for their Dallas club, Colette, and "Best Lifestyle Blog" for their website, Openlove101.com. Colette Dallas was named "Best Gulf Coast/Texas Club," and Colette New Orleans was runner-up. They also were named runner-up for "Best Lifestyle Educator."
"This is such a great honor and we couldn't be more thrilled," John Melfi said.

John has designed and operated nightclubs and "swinger" clubs in Atlanta, Tampa, and the Dominican Republic. He now owns and operates Colette Dallas and Colette New Orleans, and is currently working on expanding to other cities.

"I can't put into words how gratifying it is to hear from blog readers and fans who came up to us and said how much we've helped them improve their marriages, and not just in their sex lives, but also with the communication and shared vulnerability that has freed them to be more confident and open with each other," Jackie said. "They really inspire us to keep on, keeping on. We are look forward to continuing our passion and having another great, and fun, year."
