When "American Idol" contestants aren't on stage in front of the cameras dazzling the nation with their vocal talents, they live communally in a Los Angeles mansion. But it turns out in the same room where the young hopefuls are now singing, not so long ago it's where couples were swinging for a racy Playboy TV reality show.That show, as revealed by TMZ, was "Swing," and the second season of "orgy-lovin, sex-crazed, swingers" was shot in the "former orgy porn den."

Now some "Swing" participants are warning the remaining "Idol" contestants that the sexy stuff was going on pretty much all over the house: "NOTHING in the finalists' current digs was off limits for boning ... especially not the Idol finalists’ music room, where the singers practice," the "Swing" couple told TMZ. Plus, "according to the swinger duo, the mansion's former swinger occupants did it in the shower, on the floor, on ALL the countertops, outside, and their personal favorite ... in the elevator."

There was one "clean" zone: Surprisingly, it's the jacuzzi. You know, because of hygiene.
