    from Wikipedia:

    Swinging, sometimes called wife swappinghusband swapping or partner swapping, is sexual activity in which both singles and partners in a committed relationship engage in such activities with others as a recreational or social activity.[1] Swinging is a form of non-monogamy and is an open relationship. People may choose a swinging lifestyle for a variety of reasons. Many cite an increased quality and quantity of sex. Some people may engage in swinging to add variety into their otherwise conventional sex lives or due to their curiosity. Some couples see swinging as a healthy outlet and means to strengthen their relationship.[1][2]

    The phenomenon of swinging, or at least its wider discussion and practice, is regarded by some as arising from the freer attitudes to sexual activity after the sexual revolution of the 1960s, the invention and availability of the contraceptive pill, and the emergence of treatments for many of the sexually transmitted diseases that were known at that time. The adoption of safe sex practices became more common in the late 1980s.

    The swinger community sometimes refers to itself as “the lifestyle”, or as “the alternative lifestyle”.[3]

    Entertainment Spotlight: Comedian Rob Little

    Rob Little’s outlook on life can be summed-up in two words: Pure Optimism. At a young age, he developed and nurtured an upbeat philosophy about life.  In a recent interview he revealed, “In elementary school, kids would always pull food away from me at lunchtime saying mean, hurtful things like… ‘Let go of my sandwich!'”

    Fortunately, Rob’s ability to see things in a positive light, coupled with his desire to make people laugh, has served him well. While working in a lucrative position as a computer programmer for IBM, he decided to take a huge risk. The Detroit-born comic sent out an ALL-company e-mail that read, “If you aren’t happy here, quit your job and follow your dream.” IBM promptly gave him his walking papers, but getting fired was a blessing for Rob and comedy lovers nationwide.  He now enjoys an incredibly successful career as a stand-up comedian and with an impressive and growing portfolio of television and film appearances, he is quickly earning national recognition.

    Watch Rob in action, and you’ll agree that he is one of the very best stand-up comedians in the country.  A sketch comedy player on the Fox Sports Net Show, “The Best Damn Sports Show Period” and “Last Call with Carson Daly,” Little uses his training from the world famous Second City Comedy Club to create routines that are inventive, funny, spontaneous, and completely unique. He headlines clubs and colleges all over the country, has appeared in national television commercials and on such shows as Comedy Central’s “Distraction,” Fox News and SiTV’s “Latino Laugh Festival.”  He also earned a role on the CBS network summer hit series, “Fire me Please.”   Rob’s recently released 3rd comedy DVD/CD, is another testament to his talent and status as a comedic force.

    Having established himself as one of the funniest, most progressive, new comedians in the country, it’s easy to understand why entertainment bookers call him “The Future of comedy with more contagious energy than the Energizer Bunny.”  The Detroit Free press selected him as the “Best up and Coming Comedian,” and he earned the title of “finalist” in both the Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Competitions.  Rob was also selected as a feature performer at the Chicago Comedy Festival along with the Boston Comedy and Movie Festival.  Recently Rob was named Maxim Magazine’s “Real Man of Comedy”.  Last Comic Standing on NBC named him, “The Happiest Comic in America”.  Campus Activities Magazine named him “College Comic of the Year” and you have also seen him on the Comedy Central sketch comedy show “Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time”.

    Don’t let the “Little” name fool you. Little is BIG! But that has never slowed him down. “Yeah, I’m big, and all my relatives are too. Heck, we just got our family portrait done by aerial photography. And there are only three of us.”  The truth is, Rob is big in more ways than one.  With a grin on his face, a gleam in his eye, and a passion for comedy that is larger than life, he’s the biggest thing to happen to comedy in a long, long time.

    Swinger U: the icebreaker

    This is the first post in our Swinger University series.
    Have a topic you’d like us to touch on? Just let us know!
    Swinger University by Swinging Central Texas

    the icebreaker

    You see someone across the room and think, “They look like someone we should meet.” And then nerves set in and you wonder, “What do I have in my bag of tricks as an icebreaker?” So you go with the inevitable, “How did you get into the Lifestyle?” It’s the go-to conversation starter at all swinger events. In an arena where people are generally more cautious to discuss their employment or where they live, we must break the ice somehow. As a result, we are all prepared with our “story.”

    “How did you end up becoming a swinger?” On some level this leads me to other questions–ones that feel far less judgemental, but could be even more personal.

    • Where you always sex positve?
    • Did you always like to watch others have sex?
    • When did you know you were into girls?
    • Does your family know?
    • What about your children?

    All of these are the questions I want to ask but because they are personal, I always go with the old stand by.

    I have met some of my closest friends with this icebreaker. I am talking about my ride-or-die friends: the ones that you can ugly cry in front of, the ones who rescue you when you mash up your car in the rain, the ones who you call when you feel like your life is overwhelming and you need a shoulder to cry on and a friend to tell you it will all be okay in the end. Yes, it is true. Some of these friends have been play partners, and some were just friends. Some were “friend zoned” until the mood was just right and the stars aligned and you end up with a fantastic night of play you never expected. When you and your primary partner recap in the morning, laying in bed in the haze of a late night full of sex and laughs, you say things like, “Wow! I was not expecting that,” or “Why haven’t we played with so-and-so before?” These are the experiences that make us all come back week after week, party after party. 

    When you are new to the lifestyle, there are often thoughts, rumours, underground whispers, and urban legends, about swingers that are intimidating. All the women are going to be fit, and skinny, with perfect tits, amazing skin, and fantastic hair. The men will all be well endowed, perfectly tanned, and have amazing abs and killer guns. This kind of imagery in your brain already creates an intimidating presence. Well it could not be further from the truth! Guess what? The men and women in the lifestyle are the same as you and me. They are your neighbors, your coworkers, your kid’s teacher, your brother-in-law, your cousin, and so on.

    When you finally get the courage to attend a party or a club for the first time and look around–yes there are those with the “perfect” body, hair, outfit, tan arms or abs–but for the most part, you are hit with a wave of relief. When you actually stop and take a good look at the others in the room, you realize that this is a cross hatch of life. There are all different shapes, sizes, and colors in the room. Your intimidation is eased. And you remember, this is real life, not porn, so people are not crafted they are regular. The intimidating fears were all in your own mind, and the fantasy you’d like to fulfill comes from there as well. 

    Back to the person across the room that caught your eye, this is where the fantasy comes in. People in the lifestyle are, by and large, willing to talk. They are willing to open up and tell their sexual desires to people they have just met. You are in a room full of strangers who have nothing to gain or lose by engaging you. They give you random compliments, “nice shoes,” “great outfit,” or they may even say, “nice ass,” or “amazing tits”. Suddenly, you begin to feel like you are someone’s fantasy, and you feel sexy and desired in a new way, a way that is not the same as with your primary partner.

    Talk about a confidence boost! Feeling good about yourself makes you feel sex positive and allows you to unwind and partake in your own fantasies. Is that watching your partner with another person? Is that a threesome or moresome? Or, could it just be the flirtation or even a light touch with a stranger who is intriguing?

    We all come to this in different ways but when we go in with an open mind, we realize we all are looking for the same thing: a community–a community that accepts us for who we are and makes us feel good about ourselves.
