Before Partners ID was born, my husband and I had been in the lifestyle for many years. Some of our favorite lifestyle activities included going to swing clubs and a local nude beach. We traveled to Desire and Hedo and had ventured out on a lifestyle cruise. At times we checked out swinger dating sites for private party information and to meet other swingers online.
Regardless of the fact that we knew where to go to meet swingers, something was missing. We have always been proud to be in the lifestyle but we also practice discretion. It is clear to us that there are many benefits to being in the lifestyle but most vanilla couples cannot understand this. Most people are not open to the concept of swinging. For this reason, most swingers prefer to keep the fact that they are in the lifestyle to themselves.
At times we would wonder about couples we would spot on the nude beach. Quite often, we would spot an attractive couple and try to figure out if they were swingers. It occurred to us that other than flat out asking them, there was really no way to know for sure if they were in the lfiestyle.
Not long after we had started to think about this, we took a trip to Cap D’agde, the naturist resort in France. This community boasts as many as 50,000 visitors during their busiest times of year. While the majority of people who visit are nudists, Cap D’agde also attracts many swingers. During the summer months, Cap D’Agde reports that they can host upwards of 10,000 swingers at certain times. Although that sounds like a lot, it is only about 1/5 of the population at the resort.
One thing about this is very important to understand. While swingers can also be nudists, most naturists are not swingers. More importantly, many naturists are as opposed to swingers as many vanilla couples are. That creates some difficulty in an environment such as this. Swingers are all excited to mingle and meet others in the lifestyle, but how can they decipher who the swingers are without asking?
It was at this point that we started to realize that something very important was missing from the lifestyle. Swingers needed something to identify themselves to each other without alerting everyone around them. A symbol that was designed only for this purpose. It had to be too complicated to google yet easy to spot.
The decision was made to do something about this problem while on the beach in Cap D’Agde. There were 3 couples involved: one American couple, one French couple and one Australian couple. If there was a simple pendant that we could wear, that would identify us to others and others to us, this very vacation would have been so much better!
This concept made us think about other aspects of our lives. Wouldn’t it be great if we could meet other swingers in a local bar, at a grocery store, at a sporting event? There would no longer be any reason to constantly wonder if other people were swingers.
Since its inception, customers have written us hundreds of emails. They relate stories of how they have met others swingers because of the jewelry. Each note always says the same thing: “We would never have met these people if it wasn’t for the jewelry.” That is exactly why it was created.
Now imagine if everyone in the lifestyle wore this pendant….
