Please don't take this as argumentative I'm am just wondering how people view this?
I'm confused. Are you Holiday's husband? I ask because my previous post was addressed to her (the OP).

Kdt, thank you. I have tried to reply to your post twice and it hasn't gone through. What a lot of info! Thank you so much. I'm checking out the movie list. My husband likes to read but he won't read any books I give him so I will have to think of some other way to open his mind.

Thank you, Dust. Well...just going by that title alone, I'm 99% sure my husband would not read it, but I think the swinging may work out, kinda. Swinging is not quite the same because you have to deal with the schedules and sex drives of four different people, not to mention two women's menstrual cycles. But I'm crossing my fingers.

:-) yup, I understand.

Feel free to drop me a line if you want the reluctant partner perspective on anything.
