Did I miss the "sick" part somewhere?
 
2014-05-08 09:05:35 AM
Whats wrong with being swingers, subby? So you and your SO are open sexually and enjoy exploring others together? Is that wrong? Should they not do that? Is it upsetting your Puritanical view of the world?

somedude210: Whats wrong with being swingers, subby?


FirstNationalBastard: Did I miss the "sick" part somewhere?


I'm wondering if it's because the swinging couple are "older".  They're 40, and the new couple are in their late 20s.  That's not too big of a gap, IMHO.  From the headline and the [Sick] tag, I was half expecting the older couple to be, like, in their 60s or something...which would be a bit weird.  But, whatever floats their goat, I guess.

What are you talkin' about, Glen?

What am I talkin' about? I'm talkin' about sex, boy, what the hell you talkin' about? I'm talkin' about l'amour! I'm talkin' that me and Dot are swingers, as in "to swing." I'm talkin' about wife swappin'. I'm talkin' about what they call nowadays open marriage. I'm talk...

*THWACK!*

It could be from listening to them farking through their walls and baby monitor. But IMO, if you're broadcasting it loud enough to hear outside, then it's fair game. Now the baby monitor is a little different. Yes you aren't really doing anything wrong, but you could change the channel and NOT listen in.

sick tag?

someone has a closed and warped view of sexuality. There is nothing in that article they have done to hurt anyone, so what if they are swingers? It's 100% consentual fun between adults

Sounds like the subby is just mad he can't find a cool wife (or husband) who's into that sort of fun.


Never amazes me the number of people so quick to deny other harmless fun because they have a stick up their ass.

"Our sex life is on the skids.  We heard other people doing it, we got all horny again, and now we want to take what they have and feast upon it ourselves.  Because hey, what hot, nubile 20-something new bride doesn't want a wrinkly 40-year-old dick because I say so?  Amirite?  You know I'm right."

Signed,

Hedonistic assholes with poor impulse control and a sense of sexual entitlement
 
2014-05-08 09:54:43 AM
God, Subby, that stick up your ass has to hurt a great deal.  Have you considered seeing a proctologist?  Additionally, to the rest of the people here, the story isn't all that fantastical.  Swingers have cause to believe that neighbors are thinking about swinging?  Especially a young, super frisky, loud couple?  Color me shocked.
 
2014-05-08 09:54:44 AM
I would think that getting involved with neighbors, like coworkers, would be a bad idea.  If things go bad, it's not so easy to just avoid them.

FYI.  Portable Phones (not mobile) pick up baby monitors.

its annoying as all fark when you live in an apartment and there are three or more baby monitors around.


Also...holy balls asshole... just get to know them better first with no intentions of farking them and then if it happens.. it happens.  Never use that as an opening gambit with neighbours.

Tom_Slick: The 70s are back!


In regard to swinging, they never left. It is more popular than ever and the number of swingers is growing. One can understand why, when one thinks about it. The divorce rate among swingers is significantly lower than that of other couples. This may be because swingers generally have very strong marriages and few hang-ups about sex and fidelity.
 
2014-05-08 10:00:27 AM
Another fake letter most likely.

But, to answer the question:  You can make friends out of other swingers, but not swingers out of friends. Or in this case, neighbors.
 
2014-05-08 10:01:51 AM
I'm going to copypasta this letter and re-submit it to TFD as an ANON-DIT and see if the responses hit the 85% mark calling it fake.

Whatever, bro, but wandering around in a pit of STDS ain't my thing. AIDS and herpes do not excite me.
 
2014-05-08 10:02:42 AM
Also, what's up with the 'gay sex' tag? I don't think they were talking about switching gender partners
 
2014-05-08 10:03:04 AM
Yah, the baby monitor thing gets a little creepy. "I think they said something about swinging, time for some bone jumping." "I thought it was singing, but OK, sexy time."

Send the wife over to subtly flirt with the husband. Things will clear themselves up soon enough, though the wife may end up getting boned while the husband listens to the baby monitor..

Yeah, whatever.  I'm not sharing my toys. I have known some people who do this and based on my personal observations, swingers are gross, nasty people nobody would want to fark.  But go ahead and knock yourself out.

Went to a swing club once. Wasn't my lady's cup of tea. But the mere fact that she gave it a shot was very endearing to me. She could have had whatever she wanted that night, and she stuck with me. I'm short, heavy, bald, and old enough that I need to trim ear ear hair frequently, and I could never imagine having more fun with someone else. I even like the way she rolls her eyes at me.

Swinging really works for a subset of couples, and for the other couples, it can give them something daring to discuss while naked. It's a good thing.

FirstNationalBastard: Did I miss the "sick" part somewhere?


I was wondering the same thing. Guess subby ain't getting any or was the receiver of a swinging party with the black gay neighbors.
 
2014-05-08 10:07:44 AM
Imagine my delight when I first heard them loudly going at it.

Ummm.... creepy much?

If not, is it still OK to listen in?

What???

That is the beauty of swinging, if you are reasonably attractive, we will swing with anyone!

In other words, why not both?

2014-05-08 10:11:04 AM
I say take a chance. 40 can be sexy, but you aren't getting any younger either. It doesn't sound like they are all that friendly with their neighbors, so less to lose if you're rejected (which is quite likely, btw). Worse case scenario, you'll be known as that creepy, older couple, but, you know, fark em.
 
2014-05-08 10:14:36 AM
I knew a swinger couple back when I was dating around and they knew I was computer savvy.  To be nice I helped clean up their system (antiviral software, making it boot faster, etc).  After I was done the guy casually suggested to his wife that she should take me upstairs to "thank" me for my help.

They were not the most attractive couple in the world.   I politely declined and got out of there as fast as I could.

Are you trying to tell me that having sex with multiple partners, who all have sex with multiple partners, doesn't increase your risk of catching STDs? Because that would make you an idiot.

2014-05-08 10:17:33 AM
Really small sample, but I used to work  (briefly) for a guy and his wife who were overtly into this sort of thing.  Met they're circle of friends once.  These were people I wouldn't even hang out with at a bar much less fark.  They were all creepy as hell.

Not to start a thing, but pure swinging is preferable to polyamory, where you spend as much time making rules as you do farking. Then twice as much time accusing everyone of breaking rules. Swinging is just farking other people occasionally.
