Fantasy Interests

Talk with your partner about the fantasies that you want to play out. Be open and honest about your expectations and things you want to experience.

Decided on your comfort level

Talk to your partner and figure out how far each of you are willing to go. Are you both okay with each other having sexual relations with other couples? Is flirting as far as you want to take it? Set some initial rules and guidelines and adjust them as you become more comfortable.

Get tested

Before you start sleeping with other people it is a good idea to get tested. Make sure you are clean and are not at risk to infect anyone else with an STD. Safety always comes first.

Join a swingers club

Do some research and find a local swingers club in your area. Contact the club and get all the information you need to complete the membership application.

Understand the rules of swingers club

Have an idea of what you are looking for

Have an idea of what you want in another couple. Talk with your partner and set some parameters for the type of couples you are willing to swing with. This will keep you focused and increase the likelihood that you will both find a couple you can enjoy.

Commitment level

Decide beforehand the level of commitment you will have with other couples. Do you want to play with a number of couples or are you looking to build a long-term relationship with one couple.
