This part of Jamaica needed its own blog post.
No M and I did NOT participate, however we were totally exposed to it with no choice.
I can honestly say I had heard about swingers, ya the swing dancers and yes the couples that decide to share partners... and although I have seen swing dancers before, I had never seen swingers before.
How did we know they were swingers? Well let's start from the beginning should we...
M was playing volleyball and this couple joined the game. She decided it would be best to put her bikini top back on for the game... OMG could you imagine if she didn't? They have got to be about 40 years old. After the game M was hot, the pool was freezing so we decided to go swim in the ocean. The guy that played volleyball with Mike approached us in the ocean and just chatted it up. Seemed like a normal guy. He explained to us that he was there with a group of 6 and that they travel with each other once a year around the same time. I happened to look up on the beach to see that not only was his wife topless again, but 2 of her friends were too. Whatever - not my thing, no judgements... yet... haha
As the week went on, we thought we would see things between the group of 6, but just figured we had the couples mixed up. Until one night, M and I were heading up to our room and were about to get off the elevator when the doors open and sure enough there were 2 of the wives barely clothed, D-RUNK and making out. M and I just kind of looked at each other in shock. Yes we have seen lesbians, however we were not exactly expecting to see THAT when the doors opened. The ladies laughed it off and moved to the side so we could get off. It was at this point that we figured out just what was going on!
We later learned that they had keys to each others rooms and switched it up often. Nonetheless it became humorous when we saw them around the resort.
I think the disturbing part was the fact that they were recruiting. No M and I were not invited - Thank goodness! But we had met people who had been. We also saw their attempts go down at the pool. The poor couples that had no idea what was going on, just thought they were nice people, until the one lady tried to take off the other ladies top... that did not go over well. They quickly learned what was going on.
So, after being fully exposed to swingers and how they role, I still don't get why they do it. They are essentially cheating on each other. I don't really stand for that myself. I don't care if one is or both are, it is still cheating. But each to their own. I am sure after this trip they go home and live their lives as normal people, not letting on that they prefer to switch it up every now and then. It's gotta be a rather secretive life.
