The Swing Scene Presents…A Beginner’s Guide to Swinging

We decided to take some of what, we at least, considered to be our best information and advice on getting started in the Lifestyle and put it in an easy to read e-book.  This is not intended to be a recruiting guide.  The first half talks about how to get involved.  The second half is designed to help the newbie sidestep some of the common landmines all couples must learn to recognize if they are going to be successful in Swinging.  Here are a few excerpts:


Let me be clear about one thing. I am not an expert in relationships. I do not claim to have all the answers, or even the right ones. What I do have however, is experience in the Lifestyle and based on that experience I will tell you this….swinging can and will destroy your marriage if you go into it with false pretenses or unrealistic expectations. Swinging in real life does not look anything like late night cable. Swinging can open a Pandora’s Box of jealousy, insecurities, pettiness and selfishness that few couples can survive intact. The opposite is also true. When approached correctly, the Lifestyle can be one of the most exciting, titillating experiences a couple can share.

TheSwingScene Writes a Book! (Why?)

A couple of months ago we were looking at the website metrics, something we seldom do, and noticed that quite a few of the visitors to TheSwingScene had reached the site using the search term “Swinger Stories”.  We found this odd since we have never published what I would consider to be “swinger stories”.   We did find where we had used the tag on a couple of news releases we posted.  While the primary focus of the site has always been to provide real information for couples interested in the Lifestyle, had we forgotten that the Lifestyle is in fact an erotic undertaking?  It is fine to talk about the nuts and bolts of how to be a swinger, but what about the erotic side?  What about the fun part?
