Is it normal to be jealous the first time you swing?
Jealousy is a natural feeling. That is why we preach communication. If you stay open with each other and make sure you are on the same page the entire way you'll avoid a lot of issues.
What kind of people are swingers?
From Doctors to lawyers, nurses to teachers and everyone in between. You'll see people from all different walks of life, different races, heights and weights. With such a diverse group there really are people out there for everyone!
Are there different ways to swing?
Of course! This is being referred to more and more as the lifestyle for a reason. It can be as mild as watching others or being watched, to soft (oral) swapping, to full blown partner swapping. Its your call! Always go at your own flow and take as much (or as little) time as you need. With so many ways to explore, enjoy yourselves and take it all in!
Why is it so hard to find a single female to join us?
They're called Unicorns for a reason! There just aren't many single females in the lifestyle. Most females that are in the lifestyle are half of a couple and since demand is so high for the singles there's simply not enough of these lovely ladies to go around.
Is swinging just for couples?
Swinging is a lifestyle open to couples and singles a like. There is a reason why we say the more the merrier! Most parties are geared towards couples and single females, however there are certain nights at clubs and certain parties that welcome single men.
How do we meet others who are interested in the lifestyle?
There are many different ways to meet other people in this lifestyle! You can join websites and scroll through dates, send out messages or video chat with others. You can go to clubs and meet up there for the night. There are meet and greets, specifically designed for you to get out and mingle! Try one, or try them all!
So, how do we get started?
That depends on you! If you want to jump right in, check out some swing clubs or a hotel takeover. If you want to just dip a toe in the pool to see what its like, hit up a meet and greet to see what everyone is about. This will give you a chance to meet people without feeling any pressure to participate. If you want a little one on one time, try posting on a few websites and invite someone over for some fun!
Aren't Diseases a problem? The nice thing about the lifestyle is that it polices itself. As long as you are open and honest about your own status and have fun safely you'll find most others will do the same. Those who do not will end up segregated.
