The Life on the Swingset trip to Desire Riveria Maya is still six months away, but we are packing our suitcase for a sexy adventure in desire right here in the US! It all started last spring when I learned that Cooper and the crew were sponsoring a trip to Desire. We had been considering a vacation at a clothing optional resort and going with the Swingset seemed like the perfect opportunity. As always, I went into research mode. I read everything I could about Desire. I read reviews on Tripadvisor.com and the Desire forums. I listened to hours of…

It’s the season for costumes and creepiness! This article is part two of my experience hosting a Swinger Murder Mystery Party. You can read part one here. The Set-Up: This is a party that requires quite a bit of planning and preparation. I would plan at least a month to prepare if you are having a larger group. If you’ve never attended a vanilla murder mystery party I would start by hosting a party with 8 – 12 people so you get a good idea of the flow. I would definitely recommend buying a mystery from a company. You can…

We celebrated summer by hosting a Swinger Speed Date and Picnic this weekend. We participated in a swing speed date with Life on the Swingset in Desire last fall and wanted to try it with our group. The format of speed dating allows couples or singles to meet many people in a short amount of time. Each date is only four minutes so it is really just a preview. Although the dates are quick, it’s a great way to get to know someone a little and determine whether there is some attraction. This was one of our favorite events and…

Girls’ Nights Out are a relaxed, low-key way for women in the swing lifestyle to get to know each other and have fun. I’ve been organizing girls’ nights for my meet and greet group for nearly 2 years. My group currently meets once a month for a Meet and Greet at a vanilla club. The group is comprised of couples and singles over age 30. If you are interested in learning more about how I organize the meet and greets you can read this article, How to Run a Fantastic Swinger Meet and Greet. You can read about our first…

The more the merrier! Here is yet another set of games to get your group mingling and flirting. These are games we’ve used for our meet and greet. We meet once a month in a public club where there are a few other patrons. We have between 60 and 120 people in attendance, couples and singles. Everyone is part of our online group. We started playing an ice breaker game because members had commented they were nervous about approaching new people. Quite a few people would come to meet and greet and just sit by themselves at a table. The…

This article is part of an ongoing series about STI’s as they relate to swinging. You can read related articles here. Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is not technically an STI, but it is related to sex and is commonly encountered in women who have multiple sexual partners. All healthy vaginas contain bacteria. Normally the “good” bacteria outnumber the “bad.” When this balance is disrupted the harmful bacteria take over and cause symptoms such as itching, discharge or a fishy odor. The odor is typically worse after sex. Bacterial vaginiosis is not thought to be contagious or something that is spread from…

“Twister, The game that ties you up in knots!” was billed as “sex in a box” by competitors when it was released in 1966. I have no way of reporting how much sex has resulted from Twister in the last 50 years, but I can tell you how to host a silly, sexy Twister swing party! The Game We organized the game as a stripping and drinking game. If everyone starts clothed they can “fall” and become a spectator if they get uncomfortable removing clothing. One person is the designated spinner. The size of your mat will determine how many…
