Have you ever spent time on any of the many swingers’ meet websites – Kasidie, Lifestyle Lounge, Adult Friend Finder, etc? In making sure I bring good, current info to this blog, I have spent a reasonable amount of time on these sites over the past few years. Here are a few trends I have notices
1. More ‘face pics’: When I started visiting these sites about 5 years ago it was rare to see couples posting pictures that included their faces. The norm was shots of bodies only or full pictures with faces blurred out. Lately I have notices many more couples willing to have their identities fully revealed to all those visiting the site
2. Younger couples: In my very informal survey of swingers on these sites, I would estimate that the average age is 2-3 years younger than it was 5 years ago. There are still tons of folks in their 40s and 50s, but is not seems very common to find couples in their 30s and increasingly common to find couples in their 20s.
3. More couples: Again, very unscientific, but it seems there are many more couples on these sites than there were just a few years ago.
So, what’s going on? Are we seeing the mainstreaming of swinging? Not to get ahead of ourselves… swinging is still far from mainstream, but it certainly seems to be gaining in popularity, diminishing in anonymity and, perhaps, reaching a tipping point.
