When it comes to getting involved with the swinging lifestyle, one of the biggest challenges that you’re going to face really will be locating someone to do the deed with. Today we’re going to talk about how you can locate other swingers in your neighborhood – or at least in an area pretty close to where you live. After all, half the fun is shooting for someone local, and making it a convenient way to hook up!
Thankfully, you aren’t going to have to do anything like awkwardly hosting dinner parties and asking secret questions, or going door to door with fliers and cards to fill out. In fact, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, this ‘most challenging part’ of the swinging lifestyle just isn’t all that challenging any more.
Use the internet to find Local Swingers
The internet is a wonderful thing, people, and it’s now become the central place for discovering other swingers that you might be close to. There are countless websites out there that you can check out – and we really are going to recommend that you use an actual site dedicated to the act of swinging and skip out on those ever prevalent Craigslist ads of couples looking for a fun time. Internet safety 1010 isn’t going to make your hot time any less hot, you know?
Swinging on Reddit
You can often find listings for swinging parties on Reddit, though let’s be honest… it’s hard to actually find a post on Reddit that’s relevant to your area. Meanwhile, actual swinger sites like SwingLifeStyle and Alt.com have areas that actually make it easy for you to pick out some place that’s close to where you live.
You can also check out some of the swingers date club sites – though you usually have to pay the monthly membership fee there. You can consider the fee the bouncer at the door. It really is just like a virtual club where you have to pay to get inside and then can hook up and have a great time.
Swinglifestyle.com for Swingers
SwingLifeStyle.com is an online community for people who live the swinger lifestyle. The site started in 2001, just as swinging witnessed a surge in popularity thanks to the internet. As of 2020, there are roughly 16 million site members, including over 250,000 in the U.S. It’s pretty cheap to register here, only costing $15 a month once you round it up. Registering gives you the ability to see and upload nudes with other members, as well as browse profiles, participate in video chats, and get a chance to talk with other members.
Alt.com for Swingers
Meanwhile, Alt.com caters to the kinky side of the swingers community. The site explicitly mentions BDSM and fetish in its byline. The moment you land on their front page, you’ll see images of whips, leather, corsets and a load of other like minded images. Due to its nature, this is a more niche site, with only about 415k members. That being said, if you’re a swinger with a wild streak, this is the site for you. The lowest tier is $20 and the highest tier is $45 when it comes to memberships, which gives you access to local and regional chat rooms, member videos, and access to a lot of like minded individuals. It’s a great BDSM resource!
Reddit.com for Swingers
And then, of course, there’s good old fashioned Reddit. Good old Reddit with no membership plan, tricky moderators, and a lot of nostalgia factors being tossed about. It really is a whole lot easier to just check out a swinger site. When you join a swinger site, behave the same as you would at a social function. Enter the forums, talk about interests and ask polite questions. The sex talk will soon follow. The more time you put in, the more you’ll get out of the experience.
And of course, there are plenty of sites out there that we didn’t get a chance to talk about today. Even Tinder is a valued asset when it comes to finding local swingers! At the end of the day, it all comes down to your budget for the membership plans, your kinks, and your interests. There are enough sites out there that you should be able to do a quick Bing search and have the whole world of swinging brought into existence, right there at the tips of your fingers!
The biggest thing to remember is the same big rule as always: make sure that you stay safe, have fun, and get sexy!
