Competition is good for swingers and swinger businesses

As a swinger I obviously share my husband with other women and he shares me with other men or women.  That is the basis of swinging.  We maintain our relationship as a married couple while still giving into the opportunity to experience others.  The key for us in swinging is different or new.  To find other couples we have become members of several swinger websites, we attend various lifestyle parties, and frequent different swinger/lifestyle clubs.  The options give us the opportunity to meet someone new with each.

The competition between websites, clubs, and swinger groups is fierce.  Each wants to be best in the business and it stands to reason that each should attempt to do anything possible to reach that status.  Unfortunately this has led to some poor behavior in my opinion.  The rumors of bad service, poor quality, or illegal behavior has been wide spread in an attempt to push another out of business.  This just isn't good business.  If you can't run a business without trying to ruin your competition, then you probably aren't running a very good business after all.

Swingers are going to frequent and promote the club, website, or lifestyle group they like best.  I personally like a little variety so I normally won't stick to any one all the time.   And I will continue to promote all when that crazy writing bug tickles my fancy.

We as swingers compete with one another for the attention of particular couples.   That might sound strange, but it is what it is.  I don't talk bad about Billie and Susie so that another couple will screw us rather than them.  It's my pretty face, my curves that won't quit, and my killer personality that will win them over every time.  Billie and Susie are on their own without a peep from me.

Since I have been blogging about my life, my swinging experiences, and preferences I have unwittingly put in th middle of some of this swinger business competition.  I enjoy the club atmosphere and I have favorites of swinging websites, but my job here is to tell the swinger community what is available, explain how they work, and occasionally say I had a good time here or there.  I plan to continue to plug and promote all clubs, websites, and groups as equally as possible.  If you have a bad experience feel free to tell me about it and likewise if you have a good experience I want to hear about it too.  But don't ask me to stop talking about this or that.  It's just not going to work. 

Competition is good, deal with it!
