In a perfect world, swingers and swinging would be perfect. We all know from experience, that nothing is perfect. We all wish we could simply educate people as to what not to do in the lifestyle, but that would be rude. So instead, simply send this blog out in a mass email and hope for the best!
So what are people doing that we find so annoying? Let’s start with a list:
- Body odor (any kind, doesn’t matter where or why)
- Bad breath (probably could be included under number 1 but want to make sure people see this)
- Poor hygiene
- Talking during sex. (We will explain later)
- Cheering from the stands (obviously only when you’re swinging in a club or group setting)
- Someone telling you what to do and how to do it
- When someone tries to do something unconventional without asking
- Having someone tell you how much you like what they are doing to you
- When someone asks: “Did you cum yet?”
- Telling couples that you are so shy and new but the reality is exactly the opposite.
- Attention seekers.
- People who impose their fantasies on other people.
- Calling others over to join in while you are playing.
Let’s start with the body odor. This is pretty self explanatory. Nobody wants to play with someone who smells. Not hair, underarms, genitals or any place else. It’s just gross. For everyone’s sake, please make sure to shower and wear clean clothing when you go out to swing. Put on deodorant and heck, wear some cologne or perfume, it can’t hurt! Body odor is a deal breaker for most couples in the lifestyle.
Bad breath is a common problem but pretty easy to solve. Take your pick: breath mints, breath strips, chewing gum, mouth wash, or mouth spray. We are not picky, just make sure to use it as often as you need it! We are always confused when one person has very bad breath and their significant other doesn’t tell them. We are alway trying to figure out if the significant other has become immune to the smell; why else wouldn’t they alert their partner?
It’s hard to believe that poor hygiene is actually a problem that some swingers encounter, but it is. It would seem that when people are headed out to meet others for sex, good hygiene would be a priority. Sadly, this is not always the case. I am sure that these people have a tough time finding others to play with.
Talking during sex can be a real turn off for some people. To be in the moment with your partner requires a certain amount of concentration. No matter how funny that joke is, it can wait. It’s a huge turn off when someone interrupts your kissing to tell you something. If the building’s not on fire, whatever you have to say can wait.
Cheering from the stands is high on many people’s list of things they hate. We don’t need your comments or applause when we are playing. If you enjoy watching, fine, do it, but please don’t give us your two cents. Don’t cheer us on to cum or for him to keep going. It’s a mood killer and it seems nobody wants to hear it.
While many of us can appreciate that some people have a very specific way of playing, giving too many instructions to your partner can be annoying. Do this, push harder, go deeper, turn right, turn left etc. is not a huge turn on for most people. If we need an instruction manual to play with you, we’d rather just not play with you at all.
Not everyone is open to everything and this can sometimes be a problem If you are thinking double penetration or anything anal related, it’s probably a good thing to ask your partner first. The same goes for men touching men. Better to be upfront about what you are hoping for then to surprise a couple when they are in a compromising position. The same goes for playing bareback. If you and your partner prefer to play without condoms, don’t assume that everyone shares your views. This is something that should be discussed ahead of time. If a man hands you a condom when you are playing with his wife, he expects you to put it on. Don’t try to simply “slip it in” to see if you can get away without one. Also, please don’t tell us your too big and no condom will fit.
We all know when we are enjoying ourselves and when something feels good to us. Unless you are the type who lies there staring at the ceiling, you probably do something to let your partner know you are enjoying what they are doing. The last thing anyone needs to hear from the person they are playing with is, “That feels so good for you, right?” “You like that.” Especially when it is said over and over. That can be extremely irritating.
This is somewhat related to the above problem. It’s natural to make some type of noise when you orgasm. This usually allows your partner to know when it happens. There have been men who have made me scream and not long after will turn to me and ask me if I came. Seriously? You didn’t know? Are they asking just to hear you say yes? I am never sure.
This seems to be a growing trend: meeting a couple and the woman tells you that they are very new to the lifestyle. She says she has never played, she is very shy and unsure about the whole thing. Maybe everyone can take it slow and she can just play touchy feely with the other woman. No sooner is everyone naked and she’s grinding away with your partner. To top things off, she tells the group her fantasy has always been double penetration. WHOA!! What?! You are left with your mouth open while she screws your guy and hers and you are left to watch. What just happened? Sometimes the man she is with is just as shocked and he is so busy watching her that he can’t even get an erection! While we have no objection to anyone that wants to play, why not be honest from the get go?
Attention seekers are annoying to everyone. They are the loudest and most annoying people in the lifestyle. When everyone else is lying down, they are standing on the mattress, when people are sitting down, they are dancing. You know who they are and nobody wants to be with them. They are always screaming with pleasure and most people would like to put a pillow over their mouth.
Snobs are always low on the totem pole. Nobody likes to associate with someone who is too good for them. They walk around acting like everyone is lucky to be in their presence. They are generally not very successful with swingers.
Everyone has a fantasy but that does not mean we all share the same ones. If your fantasy is something that others might not be ok with, better to play them out at home. Golden showers and other bodily oddities don’t fly with everyone. Nobody likes to find themselves with a partner who is asking something outrageous of them. If your fantasy is something out of the ordinary it might be a good idea to ask people before hand. Their facial expression should be a good indication as to whether they are ok with this.
When you are playing with another person or couple, they can sometimes get caught up in the moment and decide to share their good time with others who are around. That might be fine but it is always best to ask the people you are playing with before you do this. Randomly inviting others to join in is not always appreciated. Many people like to know the people they play with or have certain standards by which they choose others to play with. When a couple simply waves another couple (or single man) over to join in, this can make people unhappy and uncomfortable.
Swinging can be a lot of fun but sometimes people do things to ruin the experience. These are just some of the problems people encounter that can be a real turn off. If you swing and have discovered that you rarely get a second chance to play with the same couples, you might want to take a look at some of the reasons people might try to avoid playing with you. Most of the pet peeves that irritate people are easy to fix.
