Some people think of Ashley Madison only as a website for finding affairs. But nothing could be further from the truth. There’s an active swinger community on Ashley Madison, just waiting for you to tap into it. 

So, let’s talk about the swinger lifestyle, and how Ashley Madison can get you your first hook-up. 

What’s A Swinger?

A swinger is someone who has permission from their husband, wife, or long-term partner to fool around with other people. The arrangement can be as casual as a one-time hook-up for sex, full-on wife swapping or husband swapping on a regular basis or anything in between. 

Swingers can be of any sexual orientation: Straight, gay, bi, and beyond. There are even swingers who entertain ‘experimentation’, showing someone the ropes if they’re trying something new. 

How Do Swingers Fit Into Ashley Madison?

There aren’t official filters on the encounter search for swingers, so open honesty on your profile and bio is a must. It’s important to point out that you’re a swinger, and that your partner knows and approves of the encounters you seek out. It’s also equally important in the other direction – stating that you’re open to swinger encounters. 

Why? Because some people are only looking for affairs where the spouse doesn’t know or approve. It’s their kink. It’s what drives them to seek out married men and women in the first place. So, be absolutely upfront and honest about your arrangements. 

Another reason to be upfront about a swinger lifestyle is to allow it to blossom into more than just one-on-one encounters if you’re open to that sort of thing. Anyone looking for full spouse swapping, for example, isn’t likely to find such an arrangement from a normal affair. 

Anyone into cuckolding (where the husband or wife watches helplessly as you romance their partner) and recording (filming the act with full knowledge that the spouse will be watching you romance their husband or wife) isn’t likely to stumble onto willing partners randomly. Those sorts of things need to be stated in the bio, and in conversations with other potential swingers. 

Straight and LBGTQ+ Filters On Ashley Madison

Being specific about the kind of encounter you want is vital to being a successful swinger. 

In your Ashley Madison account profile, you can specify that you’re attached and seeking opposite-sex encounters, single and seeking opposite-sex encounters, or that you’re seeking same-sex encounters. Again, be honest here. It will help specify the type of swinging you want to do. For example: If you aren’t attached, spouse-swappers will have no interest. 

In your encounter search criteria, you can filter by the orientation of the encounter you’re looking for, how far away they are, and whether it’s a short or long-term arrangement you’re seeking. 

Read Bios Carefully And Remember Your Privacy

Now it’s just a matter of finding other like-minded individuals in your area. Read those bios with care and maintain your standards. With some time and care, you’ll be able to find the right swingers, swappers, and cucks to scratch that itch!
