Anyways, thats my 2cents. There are dicks in every lifestyle, its not the lifestyles fault.
I don't like it but I accept that it may make them not want to socialize with us/them. I understand the motivation behind avoiding us/them I guess. I don't hold it against them for judging.
This is not about any individuals I know. Every person I know who swings is nice and I don't even think about it for the most part. This is more about social events that are not even "official" swinger events, the atmosphere and expectations I think. There's nothing wrong with it at all...it's just not the environment I can see any reason for me to put myself in. I would consider doing it for other people but it would not be for me specifically. It could be a house party, evening get-together, or whatever. I'd rather hang with my tried and true poly peeps or friends from my old neighborhood.
If I was motivated by a need to meet new people I might push myself in this area. That's not me though.
Thanks for your comments Ari..made me do some more thinking
