just my opinion....the jealousy that COULD result is so destructive that i don't think it's worth the risk. even people who do participate in this lifestyle can be impacted by the green monster and suddenly become possessive, demanding, insecure....not a fire worth fueling in my opinion.

(but a hell of a fantasy. one of those things that is far better in theory than in practice)

The problem is, you may not know until it is to late. I guess it depends if you are willing to take the risk or not. I've had a few friends that are/were married that tried it, and it wrecked every one of their marriages. That is all the proof I need. I would venture to say the couples you speak of, you saw on T.V.

Working in Waikiki I was propositioned by 2 different couples to join them in their hotel rooms, I remember one of them owned a gym in L.A. it was so weird cause the wives start hitting on you right in front of their husbands and you don't know how to react. The gym couple was cool as hell and the wife was super fine, I contemplated it for a while until my friends brought up what the Husband might have wanted out of the arrangement. That killed all notions of joining in on their bedcapades.

if both parties do not see it the same way, it WILL destroy the marriage/relationship. We've seen it happen, and unfortunately it has been in our experiences to always be the male pushing the idea on the female spouse.

Most of the males in the swinging scene are not gay. :lol:

the one thing I can say that going to a club for swingers is much more entertaining than a regular club. The biggest difference is that the guys are not jealous and you won't see the ridiculous scenes where some guy goes off because someone talked to his lady or some lady getting all freaked out because some lady danced with her man. In that respect, it's very refreshing. My thoughts are that those in the swinging l/s are very comfortable with their relationships.

I've seen those shows as well, and yes, you'll find those types of couples. But what is usually the norm is that the wife is really good looking and her husband is, well, a nice guy. :)

It's more pratical to tell your spouse if they get the itch to go scratch it and then come back in a day or two and tell you all about it.

The only problem is when I suggest that she says "scratch mine and I'll scratch yours" and I can never get her out of bed long enough to get her to cook anything.

True dat. I saw friends of mine that already had a great marriage decide to "add some excitement". It was all down hill from their. Once that line is crossed, you cannot go back.

I have to agree ... that is nothing but trouble if the marriage is already bad. As BO has seen, we've seen a couple think it might help and just saw the marriage deteriorate to nothing. Very sad to watch.

There are some couples that can pull it off though with no issues. :)

naturaltan
05-11-2004, 07:31 AM
I think the biggest mistake many males in the relationship make is that it is a free ticket to screw around. For most couples that we know, it's about adding excitement to the relationship ... and that includes both parties. It is rare for a couple to play alone. And we've actually met a couple that does just that.

From our experience, most couples are talking throughout the experience ... and then afterwards to ensure that what happened was doing what the couple intended. I believe that once the excitement has worn off for either party, then they as a couple should agree to call it done.

We've seen the same thing ... the male is happy and the women doesn't really seem interested. A recipe for disaster.

The son finding out is not cool at all. We went to a couples house for supper with our daughter and their kids. After dinner, just a room away, the kids all went to watch TV. As the night rolled on, the kids fell asleep. This couple then wanted to go hottubbing (nude of course) with the kids in the next room. We thought they were kidding and said that hottubing sounded like a great idea ... no sooner had we said that, the lady had spare towels and housecoats for us. We very politely explained that nothing of that nature was going to happen with our daughter right in the next room. They didn't really get it. So at that point, we politely thanked them for dinner, woke our daughter up and drove off .................. quickly.

naturaltan

I can understand that for sure ... regardless of what we do regarding a party type atmosphere, we try to keep our daughter from seeing us in any shape like that. WE tell her about our bar nights, but we keep her shielded from seeing the silly stuff - she doesn't need to see it. And come morning (which comes quickly if you're up all night) we have to be up and be parents, regardless of how we feel. Our rule is, if you're going to party like it's your last day, you have to be prepared to still do your parent duties the next day.

I will admit that I have fantasized about my wife with another man or other men. In my mind it is arousing, but in real life it would probably be devistating. Fantasizes maybe just left as best as fantasizes.

thanks DG, it's how we've always managed our party evenings. It just makes sense. We've been to some folks house where the party had continued on throughout the day and they have done little parenting. We actually brought our daughter over ONCE to play with the other kids thinking it would be a neat way to unwind, but found that because the kids were used to having little parental supervision after a night, they were too wild for our daughter. The parents told the kids thourhg a closed door not to come downstairs and to feed themselves. We talked about it when we got home and decided that we didn't need to be part of that kind of atmosphere. We can't tell anyone how to raise their children, but we certainly can control how and what we let our daughter be exposed to in terms of our party nights.

BoneCrusher

My two best friends as I was growing up were brothers. Their parents were swingers. This was back in the 70's too. The kids were cool with it cuz it was just the way things always were for them. The thing was always kept outta their faces so there were no issues. We did find swinger mag's laying around, and the dad hit on my mom once, but elsewise it was not an issue.



The jealousy thing can be a killer. I dated a bi girl for about a year. She was cool with what ever we did in the moment, but after would get from mildly jealous to outright ragingly jealous. These fits came whenever we would encounter one of the females we had partied with at a club. The comments would start with “You sure do like to look at her a lot” (even if I had not noticed her yet) or something like that … then it was all downhill from there. I am not the cheating type and never went outside of our relationship to get sex. I didn’t want or need too. We had others join us sometimes and had fun, but it stopped there. It was sad that the longer we dated the worse it got till I had to call it quits cuz I could not live in a constant state of warfare.



From that relationship I did learn that I am not a jealous person by nature and am secure in who I am. I could handle a relationship like that again if I found the right girl to roll with.

no, it seems like a good way to wreck a marriage.

Relationship therapists say swapping and swinging is very delicate and it can really ruin a marriage and relationship. There is a lot of emotional baggage involved. If a couple can completely separate sex from feelings, among other things, it seems to be OK for them. A lot of couple who get curious and try it, realize that it was a terrible mistake.

I've never been involved in it, but I was asked by a guy who asked me if I wanted to have sex with his wife, and he wanted to watch us. I said no thanks. No my thing.

After my conversation with him, I was thinking...WTF? Everyone is different. Just ain't my thing.

I think for most, it should stay as a fantasy. Said it many times and I will say it again, for some couples (from my experience), when it goes wrong, it usually because the male sees swinging as a free ticket to mess around - and that never ends well. Someone does get burnt.

I hate to admit it but I have definitely thought of it and actually went as far as meeting a few separate couples out of curiosity to see if they were real. It was pretty scary since it turned out to be absolutely real and they were very serious about it. I had thought that it was mostly just wishful thinking and people fantasizing. The couples I socially “interviewed” turned out to be very compatible since they were extremely fit, attractive, educated and successful professionals (some with children and some of them church going and religious) who wanted to meet with my wife and me to develop an "exclusive" friendship "with benefits". This was mostly a curiosity thing for me after I was initially approached by a couple in a chance encounter at a bar before dinner and told about this lifestyle. So being curious I started looking into what it was all about. My wife does not approve of it at all and refuses to even consider it so we never let it get beyond a flirting stage but do enjoy meeting others socially and it’s a definite turn on to get the smiles knowing that your opposite couple’s spouse is thinking about it. It is taboo for most of us and offensive to most of our morality but a very exciting concept when you get to see that it is very real, very organized and available. And when another couple’s spouse comes onto you in front of their spouse (with no objections and oftentimes with encouragement) it’s a pretty amazingly intense experience. I use the wine analogy to describe what I saw going on in this lifestyle. That is, each couple represents a unique vintage of personal tastes and preferences in choosing each other. Each offer’s to trust the “good taste” of the other couple and to share “bottles” together in the company of each other. Like wine, in theory it’s all good and some vintages are extremely good and special and all are intoxicating. But there is also the chance of turning the whole thing to vinegar or hooking up with a couple who are not secure in their own marriages.

The only way I would consider letting it go further would be if my wife were OK with it. Because she is not it’s not going to happen with us. If she did my curiosity might persuade me to consider it with only 1 or at most 2 other very special couples who were willing to go the distance for a long term relationship. We would have to be very close relationally first with a lot of proven trust. But pragmatically speaking, its hard enough to get 2 people all in synch relationally and the chances of making all 4 equally “hit on all cylinders” is statistically difficult. So even if there were no morality issues it’s probably not worth the investment of time. By the way, one couple I met, the woman independently contacted me and told me her husband was OK with a “one on one” encounter (which is generally considered taboo in this lifestyle and to be avoided since it’s proven to be destructive to both couples). This happens but its usually a lie and an invitation to “cheat” under the guise of being sanctioned. This turned out to be the case with her since she later told me she and her husband were separating when I turned her down.

But there are definitely couples like this out there who are looking for exactly this kind of relationship to do things together, travel, have fun, go on adventures and be like extended family. It’s very real and it’s an available life style that is more common than most realize.

I’d recommend staying away from it because its more powerful than a drug and too easy to get in over your head.

If anyone had sex with my wife, they would have to die... can't have some guy going around with a smile on his face. It's a sacrifice because you have sex with a woman, but your wife has sex with another man. I'm not a gambler, if I see something that may go wrong I do not try it. Your better off just cheating IMO.

I've never swapped but I've been a swappee before...if you're in decent shape and go to a swinger bar alone you'll have husbands lining up asking you to bang their wives...I only did it once and it was among the most fckd up things I've done.

I couldn't vote because no actual swap ever took place...more like a loan.

I was the other guy fulfilling the wife's fantasy of two men. It was fun, but a little awkward. My wife and I have discussed it at great length but have repeatedly come to the conclusion that it's not worth risking a perfect marriage. Neither of us is completely sure that we wouldn't be jealous.

in my experience the proper etiquette seems to be to let the husband approach first. Be cool then the wife comes over or he asks you to join them. Be up front that you are not into dicks or friendly fire and so far nobody's encroached on that...it's still weird and I hope I never do anything like that again but of course I am Dr Jekyll right now and never know when Mr Hyde is going to make an appearance.
