3somer… “it’s a magic number”

Over the weekend we headed into Washington, DC, to host an event at a Swingers Club and we got talking about how difficult to navigate the usual lifestyle sites are on a cell phone. They all have their quirks that just don’t make them work as well on a mobile platform. Recently, however, we have started to give an app a try that we have so far found to be pretty intuitive & easy to use: 3somer.

Downloading 3somer was free & easy. It’s available in the iTunes Store & Google Play.

The app is secured with a pattern recognition lock which, especially for a couple, can make it easier to remember than a password.

Setting up a free account was quick & actually fun. Yes, they ask you to write a little bit about yourself, but to help you find who you are looking for they ask you a series of interesting multiple-choice personality questions like, “How important is it for a partner to smell good?”, “Do you have hobbies & outside interests?” and “How do you react to people that swear often?” Once we got through the preliminaries we uploaded a photo; we chose to keep ourselves discrete by cropping our faces in the photo strategically.  There are private photo galleries that you can upload more “open” photos to that only those you have granted access will be able to see.  The set-up all-in-all was pretty quick & painless.

The 3somer interface itself is clean & uncluttered.  Unlike some apps, icons are labelled to help you understand what they mean; there are no worries about clicking on something by mistake & pinging that guy you were trying to skip.

“Liking” someone can’t be any easier, you have the option of clicking a ❤️ which then asks if you would like to send a chat request or “continue playing.” Swiping right does the same thing & makes things move quickly.  Swiping left or clicking the   tells 3somer you don’t feel like there is a match & the app moves you on to the new profile. If the other profile has marked you as one they like as well, you get a notification that “it’s a match!”

What we REALLY like, even though it is called 3somer, you aren’t just limited to looking up singles as a couple & singles aren’t limited to just searching couples either. Couples can search couples and singles and there are multiple options to search for as well.  You can search for singles males, single females, Couples (FM), Couples (FF), Couples (MM), & TS/TG/TV members. The app works quite well in that respect. Most of our matches are from other couples; anyone following Swing! knows couples are right up our alley.  😜

One area where 3somer is still improving is the number of members. Yes, we did get to view many, many profiles in our area but a few with similar interests that came up as matches were many States away. This of course will change as more & more people try out 3somer.

All-in-all we really like 3somer, the design is clean and easy to use.  The app doesn’t have any glitches, lock-ups or slowdowns from our experience.  We found many matches within our 100 mile radius, considering we live in a small town but we are 50 miles from Washington, D.C., that was pretty impressive. We’ll keep using 3somer it looks like it will work for our needs.

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.

 

“Valentine’s Day” Gift…

Liberator Heart Wedge®

Liberator Heart Wedge®

I told Hubby I wanted to try out a Liberator Wedge and directed him to Better Sex by Sinclair Institute.  He sent me a few options. He and I agreed that the Liberator Heart Wedge looked like the best place to start.  He said the Heart Wedge seemed the most fitting because it can be a Valentine’s Day gift for both of us too.  💕  LOL

Hubby being Hubby, he shopped around for the best deal he could find.  Usually Liberator products have a maximum 10% discount allowed, but Hubby found a link that took $20 off a $60 purchase.  He said he got the normally $69.95 Heart Wedge for $49.95 AND free shipping with his link:  BetterSex take $20 off $60 or more

I am very excited to try it out and write a review about it.  Maybe I can convince him to let me have it early so I can let him have it early.  😜

Product Review: Astroglide Spark

Astroglide Spark

So we got our “hands” on some Astroglide Spark and I believe we have a new favorite lube! Hubby & I tried Spark for the first time last night & we loved it. As a couple that is involved in the Swinger Lifestyle and runs a Swingers’ group, you start to learn what does & doesn’t work for you when it comes to lubrication. Spark fills all the needs quite nicely; it has a natural feel like a water-based lube, but it is long lasting like a silicone lube as well.

So, we decided to try Spark last night like we were newbies that have never used lube before. Instead of a lot of foreplay to get the natural lubricants flowing, Hubby lubed us both up with Spark & went straight to work. Wow! There was no initial friction or tackiness until the lube warmed up like there can be with other freshly applied lubricants; everything was ready to go right out of the gate. Sex for us tends to last into what many people would consider pretty long sessions. An hour is short with 2-3 hours not being unusual. There was no breakdown of Spark after over an hour of play, we never had to reapply at all.

We can easily see Spark becoming our “go to” lube for one-on-one play, anal play AND in a group play situation. Clearly Spark has nailed the formula to last for long sessions of smooth play without having to worry about needing to reapply. We still haven’t tried Spark in a multiple partner situation or with toys yet but we are expecting great things from Spark.
