Adult swinging, or wife swapping as it is sometimes referred to, can be sometimes hard to understand by someone that isn’t able to keep an open mind and get pass the sexual component of this alternative lifestyle. For those who are interested in knowing more about what this lifestyle means and how to get involved in it, there are a lot of sites, forums and platforms out there that can help them get the information they need in order to make an informed decision.
What Is Adult Swinging?
Over the course of human history alternative lifestyles can be found in many time periods, cultures and geographical zones. Some rely solely on having sexual relations with multiple partners while others may involve a deeper connection between the people involved. Although not everyone looks favorably upon these kinds of relations, mostly due to social taboos and customs, they have made their way into popular culture and have become more accepted by mainstream culture. But understanding what these lifestyle choices are really about takes more than just a couple of hours spent on Wikipedia looking up various articles. It firstly implies understanding that the people who choose these lifestyles aren’t that much different that the rest.
Adult swinging, for instance, is a form of polyamorous relation that involves multiple couples sharing partners between them. To the naked eye that might just sound like a group of people agreeing to having sex with one another, even though they are in committed relations, without any consequences. Although most of the times sex is involved, swinging doesn’t resume only to that. It almost always implies that the couples involved develop friendships and engage in other activities outside of sex. While some participants to swinger parties might just want to keep things to a physical level, most of them use these meetings as a way of consolidating pre-existing relations and to even create new ones.
Adult swinging can also be used as an ego booster. For some people, being chosen to swing with another couple may be the morale boost they need. These meetings can act as a social barometer that helps people gauge how attractive they are to others or what do they need to change about them in order to become attractive to others. These groups are all about making those participating feel good about themselves and helping them broaden their social and sexual horizons.
How to Get into Adult Swinging?
Adult swinging is a choice which has to be made after careful consideration. It implies a lot of variables and a very open mind about things. The first step in getting into swinging is to be able to overcome traditional barriers such as monogamous relations or the shyness usually associated with trying to talk openly about sexual relations. Swinging shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is not something that one should just jump into head-first.
Also, swinging involves great communication with your partner or significant other. In order to be able to enjoy swinging one should first be able to talk openly with his or her partner about it. Although there are different kinds of swingers, there is a very big possibility that going to a swingers’ club or party might involve sex with a different person. The biggest obstacle a couple has to face in this situation is being able to look at this situation without any kind of jealousy. Sex is used in order to bring people together, not apart.
After doing the researh, and talking it over with their partner, new swingers might have a hard time finding the right place to start their “adventure”. The best thing they can do is either find somebody that is already swinging, and ask them to help them get started. The fastest way to do so is using an online platform. There are numerous sites out there specially designed to help the swinger community come together safely and enjoy whatever it is that makes them happy. Also, platforms and sites like these have a lot of articles and first-hand accounts, in other to help newcomers get started. Plus, they are routinely checked in order to find and eliminate any questionable members or information.
What Is Wife Swapping?
In simple terms, wife swapping is just another synonym for swinging. It implies that two or more couples trade their partners between them in order to experiment new sexual experiences and human closeness. Swapping partners isn’t a new idea. Although it was usually practiced within small groups of various religious confessions, swapping partners has been practiced for a long time, with traces of it being found in almost every culture in the world.
But wife swapping doesn’t necessarily need to be sexual in nature. Couples will sometimes just want to find out how it is to have a different partner. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the old ones will be forgotten. This is just a way for people to experience what living with another person feels like. Of course, every couple sets its own boundaries for how far they want the swapping to go.
The Advantages of Wife Swapping
Although many people argue that wife swapping is just a form of cheating on your partner without having to face the consequences, there are those that defend the practice, claiming that there are numerous advantages to changing partners now and again. Of course, these advantages may vary from person to person, but the overall fact that they exist still remains.
One of the biggest claimed advantages of wife swapping is that it helps strengthen a relationship. Couples involved in swapping have come to the conclusion that being able to see what else is out there has made them better appreciate what they have. Some have also claimed that it made them able to improve their relations by showing them how other couples interact and identifying the ways they can improve by comparison.
Another pro of swapping is the ability to better understand other people. A big part of changing partners is being able to interact with the new one. This means that all parties involved have to keep an open mind and take notice to what their partners want. This in turn can help them grow and expand the way they think.
