5 Reasons Why You Might Want to Consider the Swingers Lifestyle
Swingers are couples who like to engage in the act of intimacy with people other than their long-term partners. Both partners are in agreement that they’re allowed to perform sexual acts on others, so their sexual desires are fulfilled. Swinging may sound like you’re playing with fire in your relationship, but some of the happiest couples around live the lifestyle. Genuinely, in a swinging relationship, the act of sex is solely about sex and not about romance. In fact, you may find you start to love your committed partner even more as you start swinging. And it’s important to note, swingers aren’t just found in big cities like New York, San Diego, or Los Angeles, but they’re often found in small towns as well. Here are five reasons you and your sexual partner may want to indulge in the art of swinging.
1. The Social Elite
Swingers are some of the most social people around. To be fair, you have to be when you’re trying to flirt and pick up a new date. Most people who enjoy the lifestyle want to create a friendship and not just have a one-night stand. They’re happy to educate you on their lifestyle, and usually, they’re very sweet to speak with. Sex is all about connection and these couples know how to relate. If you’re looking to try it out, but you’re not sure where to start, you may want to seek out high-end swinging parties or clubs. A club or party usually offers security, extra condoms, and the peace of mind for a first-time couple.
A common thread between most swingers is their love for trying new things. Most of them want to keep their sexual skills at peak performance which usually leads to pushing boundaries in the bedroom. Obviously, the most common venture (and the definition of the lifestyle) is that swingers are open to finding new sexual partners, and with more partners, often come more adventurous sexcapades. The idea that you can enjoy a great orgasm while also learning more skills is a real selling point for those who engage in swinging.
3. Low Jealousy
Swingers often pride themselves on the fact that they don’t get jealous. While many people readily admit that if they saw their partner with someone else, they’d lose it, swingers usually don’t feel that way. One reason is that the lifestyle forces those involved to be very open with their partners about their sex lives, and swingers place a high value on honesty and communication regarding who, what, when, and where swinging is considered acceptable. The lifestyle also encourages trust in the relationship. In the end, there’s no reason to need to spy on one another since boundaries have been set and rules are (usually) followed.
4. No Cheating
Swinging is not cheating. The difference between the two is cheating is a breach of trust between a couple. But swinging usually occurs because both parties want to try something new and they agree on the terms before extra-relational affairs take place. Only the partners involved can define the parameters of the relationship. This often helps foster trust, rather than hurting it. But, without trust and communication in the relationship, swinging could end up causing more harm than good. It’s important that both parties really want to take part, or resentments could start to build.
5. High Happiness
Believe it or not, swingers tend to be very happily married couples, or those in a long-term committed relationship. In fact, swingers rarely divorce! It’s because of their learned ability to express and explore their feelings that they’re usually able to work through marital issues with strong communication. Being a swinger is a great way to ensure that both people in a partnership are having their fantasies and needs fulfilled without being selfish or expecting one person to fulfill every desire.
