Basically, you usually do not have intercourse with partners other than your own, but some may allow oral or just the women playing together. The original meaning referred to people who were more into swinging as a social experience rather than as a pursuit of sexual pleasure.

Closed Swinging
Closed swinging means partners swap partners, but have sex in separate rooms. Closed swinging allows for a more intimate experience. Some people feel it allows them more freedom to explore and fewer interruptions of their enjoyment.

Open, or Full-Swap Swinging
During open, or full-swap swinging, partners swap and have sex in the same room, or bed. This includes orgies and is great for exhibitionists and voyeurs, who can show off or just enjoy watching their partner play. Some people find open swinging allows for total release of their sexual desires and fantasies. It is not for the jealous or the shy!

Taking Baby Steps
When starting out, start slowly. This gives you the opportunity to try something, and then talk about. I have friends that I have known for years who have been in the lifestyle for ten years and are still taking things slowly. The last thing you want to do is push your SO into doing something that makes them insecure, angry or feeling alone. One bad experience could end the idea of swinging, so take it slow, and have fun.

How to Find Partners
Once you have decided you would like to try swinging, you will be amazed how many swingers they really are. Since the invention of the Internet, you now have the ability in the privacy of your home to gather information, identify places and meet people.

Meeting a Couple for the First Time
When you meet a couple for the first time, it’s always nice to meet out at a restaurant, bar or nightclub. You get an opportunity to see and meet the couple in a fun atmosphere and without any pressure. You get an opportunity to see if you both click. Some people put in their Internet profiles that they don’t have sex on their first meeting. I suggest putting this in your profile or telling them straight out before hand. It takes off the pressure and really sets the stage to see if all four of you are attracted to each other. Attraction is important, so come dressed to impress. Make sure you’re clean, smell good and brushed your teeth. Get to know the couple over a couple of drinks and/or dinner, and see if things go well. Don’t do anything except mild kissing or touching during your first meeting. See how things go and take it from there. We have been on dates where the other couple is very aggressive or pushy. This is a total turn off. Things will click, and if they don’t, there are lots of other people in the lifestyle you have not met yet.

Meeting a Couple for the First Time…More
Meeting a couple for the first time should never start at your home. Get to know the people a little better before you invite them to your home. Use common sense when it is time to invite them into your home. Use these rules: • • • • • • Don't give out your home or office address. Meet in busy, public places until you get to know them. Use your own transportation to and from the date, and tell a friend the time of your date and where you are going. Carry a cell phone and check in when you get back. Stay away from secluded areas and very private date spots. A first date shouldn’t be a drive in the mountains or a quiet dinner at his or her home.
