Kitty, I agree that it is wise to weigh the words of other people but do keep in mind that they will often have their own agenda. For example, my husband and I are soft swap only because that is right for us, and we find that our choices of what soft swapping encompasses are different from other soft swappers'. Are we wrong? No. Are they wrong? No. Are soft swappers still swingers if they choose to not have intercourse outside of marriage? I think so, but some full swappers don't. Are either of us wrong to call ourselves swingers? No, in my opinion, and that is what is most important for ME. I'm sorry to have ventured so far off your original post. Maybe other people can give you productive advice where I've fallen short. Good luck!

I really don't know what to tell you, Kitty. At age 40 your husband may not be able to break out of his shell, but then again maybe he can. I am not a counselor, so can't help you there. Some men are happy letting their wives go out to hook up with other people alone, waiting at home to hear all about it when she returns. Some men love that scenario, then have passionate sex with their wife to "reclaim" her in private. Others like to listen in via phone or Skype. Would he, you and your partners want to try that? As for dropping out of the lifestyle under any circumstance, only you and your husband can decide that. There are no "shoulds" here since we each define for ourselves what is right for us.

You're welcome, Kitty! Have you two gone to any gatherings for lifestyle people? Your husband might enjoy a casual atmosphere first, where a hook up is not anticipated or expected, like a meet n greet. Flirting still can happen and more might develop, but in any case he will have a chance to converse with women who he's attracted to. If it works out, maybe you can get their contact info. Do that, go home, discuss your fantasies about the people you met, get turned on and have hot sex with your husband, and talk about what you want to do next together. In your fantasies, talk about what you would love to see your husband doing, like playing with a certain woman's breasts, nibbling on her clit, fingering her, etc., being very descriptive about how turned on you will be to see that happen. My husband loves to know what gets my juices flowing, even after all these years (over 30 married). Other parties are useful in this regard, too, and you're likely to see more people actually engaged in sex. Would he enjoy simply watching other people for a while?

Kitty, I took a look at your profile and discovered in your public gallery you have 33 pictures of you and 5 pictures of your husband in a t-shirt, 4 of which are duplicates. There are a lot of duplicates in your photos, too, but that's not likely to be contributing to your husband's lack of action, while his photos may be. If he is serious about wanting to hook up with another couple or woman, it might help to take and post a variety of better shots of him. It is easy enough to edit faces out of public pictures if that is important to you. Just be sure to do it before you upload here for approval since often the SLS editing program doesn't work. That's the easy part. If he says he wants to be the one to work at picking up someone, yet doesn't try, that should tell you a lot about his willingness and commitment to the lifestyle. Sounds like a frank discussion needs to be held.

C & P: "Personal financial wealth is when you may decide to only work for fun and no more because I have to." Dan Moller BLT, I'm confused. Did the author make a mistake by switching pronouns, intending to reflect his feelings about the personal financial wealth HE will achieve when HE decides to only work for fun and no more because HE has to, or was he talking to someone else, like his spouse or a dependent? It could go either way.

tallnskinny, have you had any luck with your profile appealing to anyone yet? IMO it still reads like it is all about you with very little about what you bring to the table - or the bed. Think about how you would want the playtime to go - perhaps fantasizing about meeting the woman's needs/wants - and indicate in your profile how you will respond. Are you simply providing a tall and skinny youngish male body with fully-working body parts, or is there more to you?

VA, reading your posts about this today made me realize how much like propaganda it seems. Remember the old tapes from Communist China, Nazi Germany, or even the safety films of the 1950s? They were broad statements quite loosely based on fact, meant to convince the reader or listener of their veracity.

I belong to a very small private group of current and former female SLS members. It is through Facebook. To make sure I never, ever screw up by posting something in my regular FB account by mistake that I meant to share with these special friends, I set up a separate FB account under an alias. Having former SLS members as part of the group dictated that we take it off of this website. So far it has worked quite well. One of the greatest benefits is that we can immediately share whatever damn pictures we want to without assigning them to the right gallery and waiting for SLS to go through its approval process.

nbhotrod13 welcome to the Forums. We fellow members always (well, usually) try to make an honest effort to help, and normally the advice is pretty good. I have never been able to simply move a picture from my Public gallery to Private or Personal. You will have to delete it from one file and re-upload it into the proper gallery. As others said earlier in this thread, if you want to edit the photo in any way, do that BEFORE uploading it into the proper gallery. The editing program on this website has been spotty at best.

The whole tone of the article you quoted reminded me of something that happened one time when we were at Rooftop Resort in Florida. In one of their group rooms I was in the swing and being delightfully attended to by Mr. Scandle and a new male friend. One of the other hotel guests brought in a couple from outside to give them a tour of the place, stopping for a few minutes to watch our fun. As they left, the tour guide told the visitors, apparently in an effort to explain why we were having sex in public, that women who have had 4 or 5 kids like to engage in this kind of activity to rekindle their sexuality (or something - I really wasn't listening). ;^D In any case, he came across as a pompous, ill-informed, self-important ass, just like the writer you quoted, VA.

luvcouple, welcome to the Forums from a fellow Wisconsinite. A couple suggestions - To get more feedback on this question here in the international open forum, you ought to describe what the event is offering or the nature of the group. Are you asking because this is your very first event as swingers, or because you have never attended Camp NCN events before? No doubt most people here have never heard of Camp NCN. With that being said, Mr. Scandle and I attended one of their hotel takeovers and had a blast! I was going to suggest you pose your question in the Wisconsin event forum, but you already did that.

Gina, stuff like that happens to us, too. We have touch-activated dimmer light switches in a few places in the house. Every once in a while, especially when it is humid out, one switch incessantly brightens and dims the lights on its own. We end up hitting the kill switch until we really need the light, and now that humidity is much less, the light works fine. Given the damn thing is about 28 years old, it's probably a natural deterioration issue and should simply be replaced.

"I find it amazing that married men, perhaps women too, troll the Internet early in the morning til the wee hours looking for sex or whatever with their SO lying right next to them. WTF is that about when you have the person you so-call love right next to you." BLT, I'm trying to understand why this doesn't make sense to you, and figure it must be that in the movie the people were hoping to cheat on their partner. Is that true? Otherwise, what's wrong with an individual looking for other partners to swing with (while the spouse is fully agreeable to it) OR with perving pictures alone?

tallnskinny, you seem to be able to write sufficiently well so I won't point out the missing punctuation, misspellings or wrong words in your profile, but you need to take a closer look at it. Reading it slowly out loud will help you catch mistakes (i.e., "my" instead of "mine"). Mentioning your distaste for drama two times is at least twice as much as you need. Some say not wanting drama is a no-brainer and almost universal, and it certainly isn't very interesting. Have you been burned by drama in the past and have a need to warn against it, or is it just a convenient phrase? If you need it and think it will make a difference, by all means leave it in one time. The thing I've noticed is when people are being overly dramatic, they typically don't recognize it in themselves and would deny any accusation. When that happens, it is best to simply walk away, IMO. Besides that, your profile is just okay and appropriate for a standard dating site or vanilla friend finder. Somehow it needs to be more interesting and draw the reader in. I know the questions tend to steer one toward describing what the writer wants and what they're like, but you need to think outside the box. What can or would you do for the people you get to play with? Saying you are new and open to new experiences in a more interesting way will help. Take a look around the Forums to find other, seemingly successful single men, and try to look at their profiles. An example: I believe Fun_Ahoy's is open to SM and is an entertaining read that gets to the point. Your 2 public pictures are okay. Some may wonder why a grown man is playing hopscotch, but maybe it shows your playful side? Is the nipple jewelry permanent or clip-on? Not that you need to make reference to it in your profile, but I'm curious. ;-) If you could show your face, smiling, it would help garner interest, and if you don't want to have one in your public gallery, be sure to have one in your private gallery so that you can attach it to the emails you send out. Also, about attaching pictures - do NOT send pictures of your genitals (if you have any pics of them) unless specifically requested. Good luck!

As a kid the underlayer of my hair was auburn while the rest was dark brown. I used to pull my long hair at the top of my head back and hold it with a band or barrette, and the hair going down the back from this clump was always lighter. Since Mom's natural color was auburn, it's not surprising. Now my hair is dyed. The colorist made it a bit redder than normal, which is a pretty color, but I don't like it for me. Next week it'll be back to a darker shade, though not starkly so.

gorge, with that poop fetish you will likely have more success if you post on a different website. It's name is something like Fet Life. Like others have said, it would probably serve you well to remove that line from your profile and only mention it to someone privately when things are advancing. Then again, some things should be held back indefinitely, at least until you have lengthy experience with someone and can trust they won't reject you right away. Your picture is not very flattering, especially with no smile and the shirt you wore for it. A smile of you doing something you enjoy, wearing perhaps a black shirt or one with more color I think would serve you well.

You're right, VA, there was that one time when even I couldn't put up with PP's ridiculous, backbiting statements, and another time there was some female writer who I got a bit snarky with, enough for management to warn me about playing nice. Usually what is posted here doesn't bother me enough to call someone on their shit. You (and others) do such a good job of it! ;-)

Huzzah! The fog has lifted and a warm breeze is blowing. Now if the incoming clouds would just break up, we would have a glorious day. Oh yeah, we enjoyed the late morning movie, too, which was Guardians of the Galaxy.

" If you manage to make her curse you out, either you've been a total twatwaffle or Mrs Scandle needs to see a neurologist." Meh - either or both could be correct at any given time, depending on my mood. ;-)

Foggy, cool, with intermittent showers. I hope when we emerge from watching a movie in town the promised sunshine will have appeared.

BLT, just because a liquid or solid food item stains something isn't cause to wonder whether it's good for us. Blueberries are supposed to be great for us as an antioxidant, improve memory, and have a low glycemic index, yet they stain or discolor clothing and teeth. I would venture a guess that the carafe you used has some kind of surface on the interior that held onto the wine color.

I agree, BLT. Just cut him off. You don't need his kind of crazy in your life. It sounds like he's too negative, too clingy, and too demanding. Why should you have to tolerate it?

Today's SHMoD - eager to participate in an electronics recycling program benefiting one of my favorite non-profits, last night I and Mr. Scandle loaded up my car for the big drop off this morning. I get an early start, arrive right as I think they're about to open, only to discover it is scheduled for NEXT Saturday, not today!

Without a doubt and with no regrets I would give up the cell phone. Sex is such an integral part of who I am and my relationship with Mr. Scandle that it would be devastating to give it up.

DD, is there any way you can get help with things or give the full responsibility for something to another person? I have no idea what the circumstances are for you, but when I've found myself overwhelmed sometimes it was an indication that I agreed to take on more than I could, and that I need to set some healthier boundaries for myself. "No" is sometimes the best answer to give.

DD, I do fundraising for a certain foundation that happens to benefit one of my kids, and have been aware of a lot of methods people use to raise money for it. What I've observed is that no particular activity need be "owned" solely by one foundation or another - just look at all the races and walks to support X, Y, or Z, or games played for the same purpose. If it gets people involved doing something they find is fun, raises awareness and understanding, and brings in money that will go to a good cause, then IMO there is no harm, no foul. Go for it!

BLT, I agree that it could help for police to have cameras, but this report by NPR explains why it isn't a perfect system with current technology. The thing that stood out the most for me is the camera officers wear doesn't record sound for the first 30 seconds, so the context of an early encounter is lost. Who said what and with what kind of attitude is key to fully understanding what happened. w ww. npr. org /2014/08/23/342623830/even-police-body-cameras-can-lose-sight-of-the-truth

One of our funniest vacation memories was from a couple years ago when we stayed at a nudist resort outside of Tucson. Their pools are clothing-forbidden, so anyone who was around the pool that day saw me fully naked. One night we went to the resort's restaurant for dinner. I had donned clothing because the air conditioning was a little too cool, but all of a sudden a hot flash hit. With sweat running between my breasts, OFF came my top, down to bare skin, to the great amusement of the other patrons and my husband. Luckily the restaurant was also clothing-optional!

FB - I just discovered what I think is a large bee hive under my deck, and we're hosting a party here in a few days. There is a fascia board keeping me from seeing it, but while pounding down nails that had worked their way out of the wood decking, the bees let me know they DON'T LIKE NOISE. Luckily I took the hint and didn't get stung - yet. At least they aren't yellow jackets!

BLT, I agree with TMF. Log out of SLS, then turn off and restart your computer. I'm no IT person, but this sometimes allows settings to reset. Have you written a complaint in the Website forum? Sometimes the tech support here sees notes there and acts on them.

Nj, have you ever heard of the "Lazlo Letters" that were published in 1992? They are hysterical. If he didn't actually write about the hot dog/bun inequality, there are a hundred other letters in that same vein, like if you follow the instructions on the Mr. Bubble package (to keep it dry), then how are you supposed to use it?

That IS a happy thought, lacouple! Just be sure to tell him he has to call first before coming home, or he might regret what he sees - and if he doesn't call first, then you will not be responsible! It has worked pretty well for us so far.
