When people think of swingers, they usually think of couples.
Most people think of swingers as couples who are in committed relationships seeking other couples to swap with. A large part of the lifestyle does consist of this genre, however, it is not limited to couples. Single men and women are both very present within the lifestyle community.
It was confusing to me when I learned that there are singles in the lifestyle. I could not help but wonder what exactly they were looking for. How do they figure into the world of couple swapping? The answer is that the lifestyle is actually much broader and more complex than simply couples swapping with other couples.
Many couples enter the lifestyle seeking a third person to join them for sex. Some are looking for another woman while some are looking for a man. One or both members of any given couple might not be open to swapping. They are strictly looking for someone to play together with as a couple.
What brings singles into the lifestyle?
Are they aware that couples are sometimes looking for a third party to play with? Is that why they are present?
Let us consider single men.
Generally speaking, swing clubs are not the easiest places to find singles for a relationship. The majority of people who go to swing clubs are couples. What makes it even harder for single men is the male to female ratio of singles.
There are, however, some clubs which boast more singles and have even had marriages stem from swing club introductions. (This is true of a club we heard from after this article was originally published. Here is the quote from this club owner: “ Here is my perspective, I have had the pleasure of performing 16 weddings. 10 were couples that met at one on my clubs, Exotic Desires Social club in Knoxville Tn, and fell in love. I performed the wedding ceremony for all ten couples. All but 1 couple are still married and attend many of our events, so i do say, love can be found at a swinger party.”
Certianly, not every single man who enters a swing club is looking for love. Nor, is every single man who enters a club actually single. While some men might be hoping to find love, some are there for other reasons. What are those reasons?
Here is what we learned:
Obviously it is impossible to ask every single guy what brings him into the lifestyle so this is based on a small number. We sat with a few and corresponded with a group over the past few months to try to get some insight.
Single men love sex (shocking). Most are not looking for a relationship. They enjoy the warmth and connection of another couple. Although they might not be part of the couple, they like feeling like they are part of them when playing as a third. Some like the challenge of being chosen by a couple to join them.
Most preferred when the husband wanted only to watch his wife play with another man. They all said they were open to threesomes with the husband in the mix. All of the men admitted that they like to be watched when having sex and also enjoyed watching others. Two of the men were only voyeurs and so this would be a natural environment for them to enjoy.
With so many single men, what are your chances?
Some felt they had a better chance of having sex in a swing club than trying to meet a girl at a bar or regular club. More than a few reported that they did not have regular success finding couples to play with but still enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of a swing club. Most of the men I spoke with are not currently in a relationship and several of them expressed that they had bad experiences in prior relationships and this was just easier.
Some of the men admitted that they are lonely and have few social contacts. A swing club gives them a sense of belonging. Even if they are not always successful sexually, it affords them a night out where they do not feel so alone.
What happens when it’s getting late and you’re not having any luck?
How about all the “towel sharks” who lurk in the dark corners waiting to emerge when a couple is already engaged in playing? What are they hoping for?
According to my single sources, that is generally a method of last resort when the night is getting late and they realize they are not having any success with invitations from couples. At times they find the couples are open to a single man when they are both hot from foreplay. Often, these couples seemed disinterested prior to that. Many of the single men admitted that most of their success was waiting for these moments to present themselves.
So who are all these single men?
Contrary to what some might imagine, single men in the lifestyle come from all walks of life. Single men range from highly professional, successful businessmen to men who at times find themselves unemplyed. The interesting part is that this plays no role in who has more success as a single. The men who find themselves accepted most often by couples are well groomed and confident. They are friendly and easy going.
Race can sometimes be a part of the puzzle as most men told me both the man and woman of many couples have a fantasy that involves black men.
Swing clubs are expensive, especially for single men.
So is it worth the price of admission for single men to visit a swing club? Every man said absolutely. The cost is high for single men but they all felt it was worth the money. If nothing else, they were always able to watch other couples having sex.
What about private parties?
How hard is it to get an invitation to a private party? This can be very tricky for single men. All of the men with the exception of two had never been invited to a party. Some had tried to get an invitation via online dating sites like SDC but had not had any success.
So what’s the take away? What is it that makes some single men more successful than others?
The two men who have been invited to private parties, are both very attractive, well dressed and gregarious men. They are both very charming and charismatic. Just like in the vanilla world, it is easy to see why people are attracted to them.
They feel that their success is not about their looks but rather how they approach couples. They always befriend the male of the couple first and try to form a genuine friendship. If the couple is interested they let the couple approach them, never the reverse. The men said that being in tune with the couple is very important. Always follow the man’s lead, even if the female is pushing for something different. Their outside contact with any couple is always through the male.
It seems single men definitely have their place in the swinger’s world. It seems to work well for men who are thoughtful about their approach. Ask any swinger, male or female, and they will say the same. Nobody likes a person who is disrespectful or pushy. If a man is looking for success with swingers, hygiene is also very important. Nobody fantasizes about having sex with someone who smells bad or appears homeless.
Do your homework men and maybe you’ll get lucky! Good luck!
