Here is an interesting article I found this week on starting to swing with your partner:
How to start swinging
Do couples actually swing in real life? Why do couples swing in the first place?
As complex as our anatomical set up and mind, our nature, characteristics, lifestyle and social behaviors are unique phenomena too.
We have an insatiable appetite for at least one thing in life, be it food or intimacy, as examples.
So you cannot be into food and intimacy at the same time? Haha, the article goes on:
Leaving food on the table, we stray into a familiar territory to take a dig on an act of physical intimacy. Intimacy is a term stretched to every direction and now it’s slanting towards swingers and couples that want to start swinging.
Swinging is a non-monogamous activity of physical intimacy treated much like any other social activity, that can be experienced as a couple. It has a recreational perspective. Swingers indulge in intimate acts with someone other than one’s spouse/primary partner, with the full knowledge and consent of that person.
Swingers have been thriving since the beginning of recorded time. In the era of flower power, swinging was a very “in-thing” and among the most popular “culture”. It has had different social standings through time, of course! The phenomenon of swinging may be seen as part of the revolution of recent decades.
I agree that swinging and swingers have been around since the beginning of recorded time. However I am willing to bet it was much more common during Roman and Greek times then Victorian times. Just a guess!
Swinging is like a sport for people who believe physical attraction is part of human nature and should be openly enjoyed by a committed or married couple.
Typically, swinging activities occur when a married or otherwise committed couple engages in carnal activities with another couple, multiple couples, or a single individual. The most common method is an adult male and female couple, meeting other pairs for lovemaking and physical intimacy, and sometimes ongoing intimate relationships. The activity may occur at a swing party, a couple-to-couple encounter, a liaison, or with a third person in a threesome.
A good section for those just getting into the swinging lifestyle. The article then gets to the meat of the matter with some common definitions. This is great information for new swingers:
How to start swinging – The different types of swinging couples
During these events, swingers acknowledge lovemaking as a game and participants as team-mates. There are few ground rules, but none etched in stone. The prominent carnal activities, but definitely not limited to, are several to mention, but a few of the most popular ones include:
It is the form of pleasure which involves making out with a partner while being watched by at least one other person.
Watching others doing or performing the big bang. It is acceptable in the group event, but not in private areas.
It involves kissing and stroking and the basics in blowing a guy or tickling a girl down south, with multiple partners. This can be indulged during the threesome, group romp, or while swapping partners.
This is to have penetrative physical sex with someone other than one’s partner. The idea is almost the definition of swinging, but not necessarily the same.
This term signifies the activities involving multiple players in the same lay-out. It usually defines a group of four or more people interacting physically. The most common is two couples, although it can be any gender of four or more people.
Ménage a Trios
Also known as threesomes, this is one of the most common methods of starting in the swinging lifestyle for beginners. A lot of couples will carry on with threesomes long after they become an integral part in swinging. In this, all three involved people interact with each other in bed.
These include things such as spanking, bondage, and water sports. The majority of these are very uncommon at most swingers’ parties unless the hosts have chosen a theme for the night, in which case you will be notified well before the night of the party.
People of the same gender interacting with each other sexually. This is much more common between women than men, but it doesn’t mean every woman will indulge in it. Bisexuality between men is extremely rare in the swinging community, and is usually frowned upon if not organized prior, and is usually preferred in a separate area.
