Then there are all the status anxieties: Is it safe -- will I have to have full-blown sex with someone if I don't really fancy it? Do I trust my partner not to leave me for someone he or she has sex with at a party, can I really be sure that I won't get jealous of my partner playing with someone else? Swinging couples turn the issue of trust in relationships on its head. We don't contact people we've had sex with separately, we don't go to parties separately.
We do it together as a couple and, as such, there's a lot of trust involved. It's great fun," he says.

I'll sometimes go to a party and not fancy anyone, so I either don't have sex with anyone or just play a little with someone to take part and make it nice for everyone else -- it's not the worst thing in the world," she says.

Although we're playing in the same room, I can't hear the conversation between Ian and other women, I have to trust him," says Maria. I was chatting to a girl, I turned around and Ian was kissing a woman," she continues. We know one couple that have gone off the scene because they're getting more serious in their relationship and want to have children.
Why should having children stop you swinging? On some websites there are forums dedicated to dogging, a sexual hobby that many swingers are curious about at one stage or another. Dogging involves the art of having sex in your car or outdoors while other people watch you or join in. Our wives are also very friendly and love spending time together. My wife friend and I were in college together and we also lived-in with one more friend. But recently I have realized that my friend is growing fond of my wife.
I can also say that on a few occasions, my friend has also dropped hints for wife swapping. I could be overthinking or joining too many dots but what if he brings this up? How do I react? It can get awkward to sense a long-term friend developing interest in your wife. Spouses usually can sense the growing interest in their partners, especially from a close friend. If you have sensed that your friend has dropped hints on a few occasions, trust your instinct, it is probably true.

Couples who open themselves up to swapping usually have open conversations and ground rules decided amongst themselves before they reach out to potential couples.

With swapping, he would have to be willing to be comfortable with you engaging with his wife too, and his wife will have to be comfortable with not only you, but also him engaging with your wife.
