Three Ways to Spice Up Your Search for Couples

When new couples decide to enter into the lifestyle, they usually do so with a lot of excitement and anticipation for the adventures that they will soon experience.  Couples routinely join for various reasons.  Some couples join because they are bored with their day to day sex lives and want to add excitement.  Other couples enjoy their sex life, but just want to spice it up.  In the beginning many of these couples will find themselves together in front of an online dating site such as kasidie.com or SDC.com eagerly trying to find their first couples.

In time that excitement can turn into boredom or disappointment for one or the other and the couple that hunts together plays together turns into a one man (or woman) operation.  The reasons can be many but certainly each couple has to come to an understanding about how they are going to go about finding other couples to play with, if there is going to be play.

Early in our journey Jennifer and I would sit down in front of the computer entering search after search, and sending out emails to the select couples that we could both agree on.  There was a lot of play time in the beginning and sometimes when we selected a couple it would be exactly what we expected, and other times it was an evening of disappointment.  As the months went by Jennifer because less interested in searching date sites.  True, we had lots of dates but the good/bad ratio was not what she was expecting and the amount of people that would not respond at all was surprising.

Episode 71 – This is the End

An episode that was going to start with snippet of The Doors, “This is the End” but Jim was just too lazy.  That’s right, the final episode.  Everything has to come to an end eventually and that’s true for The Hidden Swing as well.  We want to thank you, our listeners and friends for sticking with us almost four years.

We feel like we have reached a point where we have nothing left to say about the lifestyle.  We’ve covered all sorts of relationship issues, threesomes, foursomes, orgies, and blue fish encounters.  We’ve talked about nasty diseases and the importance of protection.  I can count how many times we’ve talked about how to talk your significant other into swinging (SO DON’T), but we have.. and enjoyed every minute of it.  But there comes a time when one door must close so others can open.

What a fantastic time to shut the door on The Hidden Swing.  There have never been so many options of lifestyle podcasts to listen to.  We feel like you are in much better hands, than those of ours.

Finally, thank you to my co host Jennifer and Danielle.  Jennifer has been my best friend and love for 17 years.  What I didn’t expect was what a great friend I would find in Danielle.  I love her and her husband more than most people know.  She came on and kept us going much longer than I expected.

So, we won’t be recording at Club Eden and we will not be doing a pub crawl with our friends at Average Swingers.  We WILL be on the Bliss Cruise in March 2017 and we WILL be at Naughty In Nawlins.  You’ll be able to download episodes until May 2017 (I believe) but when I have to sink more money into subscriptions, this podcast will end.  Would love to be on others podcasts from time to time so if you would like that, contact me on Twitter or email at thehiddenswing@gmail.com

Love every one of you.

Jim

Episode 70 – We Are Not on the Same Page

Episode 70 – When couples get into the lifestyle there is a rush of excitement and curiosity about what is to come.  As time progresses, some couples feel different levels of interest in the lifestyle and sometimes one spouse will decide they are no longer interested in playing.  In this episode, Danielle and I discuss a listener question that asks; What if my wife no longer wants to play.

Episode 69 – Hall Passes and Separate Play

Episode 69 – There are many different styles of play in the lifestyle.  Most couples prefer to play same room.  But every now and then you’ll meet couples that prefer separate room or even hall passes, date, or many other sexy scenarios.  In this episode Jennifer and I discuss separate room and hall passes.  As an aside, Jennifer might sound out of it in this episode.. Big bad straight man made her record while she had bronchitis.. I’ve got a schedule to keep.  Enjoy.

Performance Anxiety in the Lifestyle

ths_squareWhile I was editing “Episode 63 – Group Sex” of The Hidden Swing Podcast I realized an ongoing theme in the episode. That of performance issues and erectile dysfunction. I often feel like I am the token male of those that have performance anxiety and sometimes that does bother me. It shouldn’t, according to the majority of females I have talked to in the lifestyle I am in the majority. Most men do have, at times, issues with performance. I guess I have taken up the torch to defend men, the majority of men, who do at times have issues getting erect. It is nothing to be ashamed of for sure, but that is no consolation when it is happening.

The bulk of ED comes in a a few flavors. Statistically a few men have ED because of health issues, a few more have issues (in the lifestyle in particular) because of over intoxication, but the bulk of performance issues is due to anxiety. I rarely have issue these days. When I do it is often because I allowed myself to be in situations I am not comfortable with. I love a challenge, and while that sometimes sucks for the lady I am with.. I like to push myself.

Here are three ways I have taken control of performance anxiety: Continue reading ‘Performance Anxiety in the Lifestyle’ »
