Taking photos is a wonderful way to capture memories of every kind. From the day we are born, the cameras start flashing to ensure memories of this special event. We embrace our photos as prized possessions and something tangible to remind us of the good times in our lives. Birthdays, graduations, vacations with our families, holidays and good times with our friends.
Swingers are no different, but their collections of photos are typically quite different from most people’s photos. People in the lifestyle seem to take quite a bit of illicit pictures of themselves, and often their friends. Check Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or swinger websites. You will be inundated with more nude and pornographic photos than you can imagine. Part of the fun of taking these photos is sharing them with your swinger friends, right?
It is also common for swinger couples who have been speaking over the internet to request pictures of each other. After all, you would like to see recent photos prior to meeting them. It’s only logical then that you would choose to email these photos. No big deal, right? You pick out your favorite face shots. Then you look for that perfect sexy shot of the two of you engaged in some kind of sex act. Maybe you like the one where you are giving your husband a blowjob while a black male is behind you. No? Perhaps the one when your girlfriend is going down on you. Type in the recipient’s email address and push send. What could be simpler? Although it should be a simple and private way to communicate, it does not always work that way. We are human and computers do not always seem to be on the same page we are.
Sometimes the computer seems to magically change recipients without our knowledge. I am sure it has happened to everyone: you intend a message to go to one person and somehow it ends up going to someone else. For most messages, this is simply a hassle or perhaps just plain annoying. If you are a swinger, this particular type of scenario can be a whole lot worse. You push send and as soon as your finger hits the button you see what’s happened! The email is not addressed to your new friends at all but rather to your father! OMG! This actually happened to someone we know.
How about when your friends bring you into a group text message. You and your vanilla friends agree on where to go for lunch or share some gossip about someone you all know. We all have these group texts. Not a problem until you decide to share some erotic photos with the swinger couple you played with the previous evening. It accidentally gets sent out in a group text. There’s really nothing you can say because as we have heard, a picture is worth a thousand words. Can you even imagine the conversation about you between your vanilla friends? I shudder to think about it.
A couple was celebrating New Year’s Eve in a swing club and told their children they were heading out for a romantic dinner. The club looked so beautiful they could not resist asking someone to take a picture of them against the festive backdrop. They looked at the picture in the club that night and liked it so much they sent it right out to their children. What they did not notice until the next day was that in the background was a monitor with porn. There was nothing they could think of to explain this.
Another couple celebrated Halloween in a swing club and loved their clever costumes. They asked a friend to take a photo of them and as they posed for the photo, a friend joined in for the shot. When they checked the photo, they thought it was adorable. The next day they met her parents for dinner and took out their phone to show them their cute costumes. As they enlarged the picture, they realized the girl who joined in the shot had pulled her top down and her breasts were exposed. It is very hard to think of what to say in these situations to somehow make things sound normal.
It seems that as long as swingers are snapping pictures of themselves and each other in compromising positions, there will always be the possibility of a mishap. This does keep things interesting, no?
