Swinger lingo defined: "Soccer Mom's" perspective


Passively bisexual: Male or female who will accept attention from the same sex, but will not reciprocate. Personally, I am a taker and not a giver.


Bi-Curious: Male or female who does not have much experience or any experience sexually with the opposite sex, but open to the possibility. It's always good to try something new!


Gay: Male or female strictly attracted to those of the same sex. I have not met any strictly gay swingers, but that is not to say that no one in this lifestyle is gay.


[image-1]Straight: Male or female is solely attracted those of the opposite sex. Most swinging men are labeled "straight", but only a handful of women are.


Full Swap: Couple will trade partners for oral sex and intercourse. Yes!



Soft Swap: Couples will trade partners and engage in oral sex only. Some of these couple will trade spouses/partners for oral sex and then have sex with their own partner in the same room.


Girl-Girl: Girls play with each other while the males watch. Seems to be quite popular among both men and women.


Voyeur: Watches other couples/people. I guess some just like to watch!



Open-Minded: Does not want to label self so they're staying neutral in all areas. I really have no other explanation as to why someone would label themselves as "open-minded".

Here are some commonly used terms in the swinger culture, as defined by our resident swinging correspondent, Rebecca (a.k.a.: Soccer Mom):

Unicorn: Single female. This person will always be in great demand and rarely seen.

Bisexual: A male or female who enjoys being with someone of the same sex. This will include oral sex, mutual masturbation, sex with hands, toys, penetration etc. Females are widely accepted, but unfortunately males still face some stigma with this label.

Socially bisexual: Male or female who will interact in a sexual manner with the opposite sex while in public, but does not practice bisexuality as a lifestyle. I don't totally understand the purpose of this term, but would appreciate feedback.
