Life happens…

Well, we were supposed to have the most awesome Pin-Up event ever on June 17th at the Badd Kitty Club in Feredonia, NY, but, life happens.  Originally we had planned to have Ginger Snap from pinupbyginger.com doing free Pin-up photos; live music by The Irving Klaws & the rest of the evening’s entertainment by DJ Kurve. Ginger had a family emergency & had to cancel.  The club asked if we could reschedule for later this summer but Swing! is booked with other events through November of 2017. The club felt that without the Pin-up photographer that the event just wasn’t going to work out so they cancelled.  *sigh*

On the plus side, now we have a really awesome event banner we can hang up in our play-room.

A great time at Shadows in D.C.

red grunge textureWell, the first big event for Swing! at Shadows finally came this last Saturday and WOW did it exceed our expectations.  We thought maybe 100 people might come to the event at Shadows on 4/22.  Instead it as well over 230 people!

The Shadows staff did an amazing job getting people checked in, giving tours & working the bar in an efficient manner.

Our own DJ Kurve played a mix of 90’s hits and current hits that kept the place hopping.

At one point we wondered where everyone went.  A little peek back in the main play areas & we knew… a massive orgy had broken out with at least 20 if not 30 people participating.  What an amazingly beautiful sight.

We can’t wait to head back to Shadows for another go round!

Swinger Pet Peeve

Swingers are people… obviously.  Being people, that means Swingers are just as likely to exhibit behaviors that others find disconcerting. One of our biggest pet peeves are the notorious Lifestyle “Time Wasters”. If you’ve been on a Swinger site before you have probably read in at least one online profile “No Time Wasters” that is how much of a problem they can be.

What is a Time Waster? They are the type that send endless emails back & forth often very flattering or asking numerous questions. They will will often suggest getting together in a somewhat vague way but there will almost never be concrete plans. When there are plans, that’s when they show their true-colors. A true Time Waster that makes plans will almost always have “something come up” and they will have to cancel. That’s if you are lucky, the worst type won’t even cancel, they will just sort of go dark when it comes to communication and just not show up.

Even couples that have been Swinging as long as we have are not immune to Time Wasters. Case in point, a friend of ours said they wanted to have a house party to celebrate my Hubby’s birthday coming up. The last we had heard from them was 2 weeks ago she said she was off of work the next day and she was going to send out invites. This weekend we messaged her asking how the invites were going. Her response, they decided not to do the party because something came up. We kind of knew this was a possibility with them, the Wife of the couple tends to talk about big plans with us but in all the years we have known them she has yet to follow through. When we do get together with them it is because we made the plans or invited them over to our house.

When it was suggested it would have been nice if they had let us know they are cancelling the birthday party, her reply was, “we didn’t think you would notice.”  😮

Wow!  They know we have a young child, they know we had to get a sitter for the night.  Hell, their kid has sat for us before and yet that never even occurred to her.

So, we cancelled the sitter and messaged her, “We cancelled the sitter. Next time please let us know when you are cancelling.” Of course, we don’t plan on letting there be a next time with them. Lesson learned… again.

DC, there’s a new Swingers’ Club in town!

The Swinger community, no matter where you live, is well-known for being pretty tight-knit. Reputations can be made and ruined by good or bad word of mouth. That’s why it came as a surprise to us that there was a new Swingers’ Club that opened in our general area:  Shadows, in Hyattsville, MD.

Really, there is no shortage of Lifestyle clubs in our general area; TJs, DJs Island, The Cottage, The Korral, TABU, The Private Affair (TPA) are all within a couple hours drive of our home. Add to that The Crucible & Studio 58, two Swinger-friendly on-premise play clubs both looking for new locations, and we live in an area dotted with sex-positive, members-only venues where you can dance, have some BYOB cocktails and get your freak on with whomever & however many you want in an environment full of like-minded people. That’s why it was a sudden pleasant surprise that we first ran across Shadows on SwingTowns.

We noted that this Saturday, February 25, 2017, is their Masquerade party so we plan on checking them out.  We know what we really like about clubs; TPA, The Korral & The Badd Kitty Club in Fredonia, NY, all have a great vibe and have moved beyond the old days of the VFW-looking bar with Grandma’s spare room as the playrooms. But, we know nothing of Shadows however, we are walking in sight-unseen.  It is members only & BYOB as are other Swingers’ Clubs (that’s how they are all allowed to serve alcohol without liquor licenses. ) Other than that, we don’t know what the rest of the facilities are like, we assume there is a dance floor & bar for obvious reasons. But are there separate playrooms and, if so, how many? Unlike most clubs, they are open until 3am.

In a conversation with another friend, I mentioned that Shadows’ website says, Shadows is a very upscale lifestyle member’s only – private club with more 5,000 square feet of pure fun. Shadows is your ideal private club with everything you are looking for. Our recreational area has comfortable, plush, and comfy seating areas, a great dance floor with hip/fun vibrant DJ music, lockers to store your personal items and a friendly personnel to make your visit an unforgettable one. Last but not least, we have sufficient parking spaces available. We are open from Thursday thru Sunday, and we close at 3:00 AM on Fridays and Saturdays.”  Of course she correctly stated the obvious, “all the clubs say they are upscale”.  LOL

So, we shall see this Saturday I guess. Wish us naughty, decadent, hedonistic luck. If it goes well, we may share.

Product Review: Wildfire Lust Mood Mist

Wildfire Lust Mood Mist

Wildfire Lust Mood Mist

Anyone that knows Hubby for any length time comes to realize, he is very focused when it comes to scents.  When we go on playdates, he he will bring multiple Yankee Candles to the hotel to set the mood. Knowing that, we obtained a bottle of Wildfire Lust Mood Mist.

Following the instructions I sprayed the Mood Mist on the bed linens on a night when I planned on making it a romantic evening for just Hubby & me.  The first thing I noticed was Lust is a very earthy, sensual scent. It smells like “sex” without actually smelling like a room where people have been fucking already. Containing bergamot, ylang ylang & patchouli it is a very natural & pleasant scent.

Hubby immediately noticed it when he walked into our bedroom.  His comment was something like, “What is that? It smells really good.”

We had very vigorous sex on our Wildfire Lust Mood Mist infused bedspread & sheets that night. Clearly, for Hubby it had aphrodisiac qualities and the scent lasted quite long that evening as did Hubby.  LOL

The Wildfire site says the Mood Mists are very “rich & decadent” which is a very apt description. I would include that the Lust Mood Mist does fit it’s name quite well as it is a very lusty & earthy scent that does inspire passions. Only a few spritzes is enough to fill a room with the intoxicating scent & set the mood for sex.

 

Swinger Problems… (posts from twitter)

No Expectations… (But, I want an Orgy)

A few years ago we were hosting a Meet & Greet at one of our favorite venues the night of my birthday. As a surprise, Hubby had gotten a cake, decorated our hotel suite & invited 15-20 of our closest friends back to our suite for *ahem* cake & cocktails.  What ensued was the best orgy sex I have ever had.  I fucked 4 men that night & had oral with a few others (guys & girls) as well.  BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!

This Saturday we are back at that same venue hosting another Meet & Greet; actually we have been back there several times over the years.  Sometimes there has been “fun” back at the hotel, other times we didn’t click with anyone else or plans just didn’t gel &Hubby & I played alone, or sometimes Mother Nature interferes (periods can be inconvenient when you are a Swinger).  You just never really know.

Anyway, I am reminiscing about this today particularly because this Saturday may be the last time we can host a Meet & Greet at this club. To say we want to go out with a BANG! would be an understatement. But, we have been at this long enough to know that one of the cardinal rules is & will always be “NO EXPECTATIONS”.  Things rarely happen perfectly as you plan in the Swinger Lifestyle. I know I can sometimes be a little picky with potential play partners & since Hubby & I only play as a couple (we don’t play separate), that can limit our opportunities as well.

So, we can plan, we have bought snacks & enough alcohol & mixers for an after-party back at our suite. We can hope, we’ve informed a few of our friends we have gotten a hotel suite. We just can’t assume anything will actually happen. Because, you really, really just never know if anything will.

Liberator Heart Wedge®

Oh, but I did ask Hubby if I should bring the Liberator Wedge he got me for Valentine’s Day to the hotel, you know, just in case. He said, “YES!”
