Swinging doesn’t just impact your experiences in the bedroom. It can vastly improve your life in many ways unrelated to sex. I’ve personally identified ten benefits as a result of our swinging adventures and am exploring them through this blog series. You can read the entire list and find links to all the benefits here: Benefits of Swinging. This is the third post in the series.
Benefits of Swinging #3: Keeps You Feeling Young!
Aging is an inevitable part of life which affects the way we look at ourselves and the world. Most of us think and feel differently in our 40s than we did in our 20s. Sometimes that change can be positive, but not always. I feel wiser now than I did 20 years ago. I know myself better. I tend to be more responsible. Other times, I just feel entirely too serious about everything. I forget what it’s like to be young and carefree.
I’m sure you’re aware of the negative connotations that are associated with the term mid-life crisis. My kids will roll their eyes whenever they feel like I’m infringing too much on their “culture”. They don’t like the idea of mom Tweeting, downloading apps, listening to podcasts, or using some new fangled slang term. What they don’t know is that I have my own sub-culture. Part of my life that allows me to continually learn new things and embrace new ideas the way I did when I was young.
Swinging as an alternative lifestyle choice invites constant learning and re-evaluation of what you used to know. It can be very exciting at first to realize that you’ve just opened up a whole new set of feelings and ideas. Many of us have felt closed off to the idea that we can continue to grow in our sexuality as we age. Culturally, sexuality is associated with the young. Our society tells us that our sex appeal is inversely proportionate to our chronological age. I’ve seen amazing transformation in women who have opened themselves up to non-monogamy through swinging. Once their sexuality is awakened, they blossom into themselves in a new way. Gradually, a change takes place in them. They start to spend more time taking care of themselves in the ways they used to when they first started dating. They become more comfortable in their own skin and that confidence creates a youthful sexy demeanor that is intoxicating to watch.
This combination of new ideas and new sexy habits keeps us feeling alive and youthful! It’s a wonderful benefit of swinging.
