Welcome to our brand new blog! We are a happily married couple living in the suburbs who also happen to be swingers. Yes, that’s right, we have recreational sex with other singles and couples. It’s not exactly an open marriage, but more of a hobby that we share. We first began exploring “the lifestyle” (as it is known to insiders) very early in our marriage. We have had a variety of experiences over the years and the level of our involvement has varied. Some years we were simply experimenting, other years we were completely monogamous, and there was even a spell where we were almost celibate. Last year, we joined an online lifestyle website and we are more involved than ever. In our eighteen years of marriage, we have really learned a lot about ourselves, our relationship, sexuality, communication, and so much more. Swinging has been a huge part of that.
I am so excited about this blog for many reasons. I have blogged off and on since the early 90’s. I find it is a great way to express myself, explore my inner psyche, connect with a larger audience, share my insights, and learn from myself and others. In addition, the last year of being in the lifestyle has really allowed me to watch the dynamics of other couples trying to navigate this alternative sexuality. It can be really difficult and sometimes causes some tension for couples. Although my husband and I aren’t immune to this tension, we seem to have a pretty good handle on it, and I think we have some insight to share with others.
So, if you happen to be here for our very first post, we’d love to hear from you! What kind of posts interest you? Do you have any questions we can answer for you? Looking very forward to this new blogging adventure!
