Swinging Happens
youbeaty ^ | 12.13.2012 | By Temma Ehrenfeld

Posted on 12/13/2012 3:08:08 PM PST by Morgana

Brian and his wife, both in their early forties, like to meet new couples privately over dinner and drinks to talk and gauge mutual interest in trading partners for sex. He’s been swinging for ten years. “I’m very happily married,” he says. So why the interest in this activity? Married swingers aren’t looking for affairs or romantic ties outside their home; they want sex with different partners—and the endorsement of their significant other. Consensual, recreational sex within the confines of matrimony.

The allure of swinging isn’t so much sex with someone new but that “vibe in the air which adds to an encounter,” he says. “It's a feeling most people haven't had since they were 17 and trying to get to second base. You don't know how the night is going to end.”

Here it is the new polygamy. So will swingers be the next perverts demanding special treatment?

They may not be demanding special treatment but a lot of them are going to need medical treatment.

You don't know how the night is going to end.

Whether that night, or any ensuing night, they will be mighty surprised to learn that it ends with hell!

Not surprisingly, swingers develop more STDS than non-swingers

Really? You mean he didn't get that case of Herpes from the toilet seat?

What is disgusting is that my granddaughter’s other grandmother was into swinging when she and her husband were married. And the truly disgusting thing is that she told my granddaughter all about it!

Some people are truly sick.

My Ex and I were approached by a couple we knew to see if we were interested in “Swinging.”

My Ex responded with, “Swinging? Sweetheart, I don’t even have a front porch.”

End of discussion.

This is nothing new. It has been going on for all of Human History. I live in a very rural and also conservative area and you would not believe the stories I have heard about the swinging that goes on here. People you would never suspect.

It is my opinion that if one is reduced to this in order to spice up a marriage something is very wrong.

Swinging has been around forever, this is nothing new.

Should adults be prohibited for engaging in it in a free society is another question.

Is it harmful, yes, does it destroy relationships, yes, is it an affront to God, yes.

New polygamy, no, the homo's are promoting that.

Do I want the Government involved, no way.

You would probably be shocked at how many conservative types you’d run into with these folks. The demographics of that subset of the population is pretty interesting actually.

From Wikipedia:

20th century

According to Terry Gould's The Lifestyle: a look at the erotic rites of swingers,[8] swinging began among American Air Force pilots and their wives during World War II. The mortality rate of pilots was high, so, as Gould reports, a close bond arose between pilots that implied that pilot husbands would care for all the wives as their own—emotionally and sexually—if the husbands were away or lost.[9] Though the origins of swinging are contested, it is assumed American swinging was practiced in some American military communities in the 1950s. By the time the Korean War ended, swinging had spread from the military to the suburbs. The media dubbed the phenomenon wife-swapping.[citation needed]

Online swinging took off in the late 1990s due to the rise of the Internet and became more prevalent towards the latter half of the decade. [edit]

*************************************

My parents were confronted with this phenomenon in the 1950s while stationed overseas. It seems that it was not unusual.

Those in the article speak of “ a ten year time span”. This si something that has been going fast and furious since 1980! That makes it, oh, I dunno, 32 years, now?

I can state that, no, it is not ‘polygamy’, since there is no marriage with multiple wives, or husbands.

Would you day it was ‘polygamy’, when the husband goes and plays cards, with folks outside of the house, and not known to the wives? Of course you would not! (But, that was once, the excuse for many a cheater, back in the day.)

Can it be defined as ‘adultery’? Yes, it can, by Webster’s very words. Yet, the ‘finger and charge of adultery’, must point both ways, in this matter, no? So, in those states that still have that ‘adultery’ clause in divorce proceedings, and only the husband, or the wife, can be charged, how do they handle, when BOTH are?

Now, there are states that have ‘no-fault’ divorces, which means that the slighted party CANNOT introduce ‘the adulterer’, into the proceedings. Or did you already know that?

“CAST OUT THE ADULTERER!” Sure, ok, but again, how, when there TWO?

I can tell you, these folks do NOT want special treatment. They want to be left alone. They have their regular lives, supermarket, jobs, etc., and they have their private lives. I was priviledged to know some of these folks, and was taken into their confidence. I did not judge them for their actions, and I did not participate, either, because of that ‘young no-nothing GI overseas thing’, that some of you might have heard about, somewhere in your past.

Mostly middle aged meaning late 30’s at the youngest all the way up to seniors. They’re by far more well to do than average, and white by a huge margin. A very significant percentage are college educated professional, white collar types.

They could be your doctor, lawyer, dentist, etc and you’d never know it. Most of them have been married for at least 10 or 15 years. And most of them are far more conservative than you’d imagine.

That is twice that you have called them “conservative”.

It is the “conservative” part that I was looking for your proof of, as far as I know, nothing has changed since the 1960s, they are liberals and unusual people.

Its worse than this. Swingers own the nude colonies/resorts and they would never dream of making them adults only, the kids are the whole point of the lifestyle

Actually these days liberals are far more usual than conservatives my friend. The ones we know are pretty much the ultimate “leave us the hell alone” types.

And if you think things haven’t changed since the 60’s, you haven’t been paying attention.

Really, you think that the swingers are different than they were in the 1960s and you think that when it comes to letting other people have sex with their husbands and wives that the ones that desire that, out number those who don’t?

You keep trying to push some nonsense on this thread as though you have some body of research, but you are just pushing nonsense, and no, they are not conservatives.

Well, at 16 (when I was officially allowed to date), I would hold hands occasionally and I thought it was a home run heh.

How far we’ve come, and I’m still in my late 30s, meaning we’ve come a long ways in not that long a time. I don’t mean for the better either.

The only body of research I have is our own. We count some of these people among our best friends.

And you aren’t in any position to judge whether or not they’re conservative. So thanks for the input, but we will stick with what we know to be true.

Have a pleasant evening.

You only know your wife swapping friends yet you were trying to lead people to believe that conservatism is common in regards to the swinging thing.

What a crock, my guess is that your idea of conservative, is not conservative.

It is indeed very common among the ones we know. And I’ll bet we have a much larger body of data to base our opinion on than you have upon which to base yours.

And what you guess is just that and is of no more value than a beer fart in a whirlwind.

Have a good day.
