I’ve been a swinger since 1997, around the same time that I discovered swinging I launched The Swingers Board. What started as a place to post free personal ads soon became the largest free swinger site on the internet. In addition to personal ads, the Swingers Board offered an interactive community of forums that had not previously been available to swingers, as well as club listings, club reviews, and loads of personal advice and stories.
Over the next 15 plus years I continued to give advice and share my experiences. Throughout that time my own personal swinging status varied from married couple to swinging single and back to married couple, with several breaks in between.
Many suggested that I should write a book based the advice given on The Swingers Board. Some even offered to write it for me, but it didn’t happen until 2010 when I published The Swinger Manual, a simple guide to swinging from the first questions of should you swing to dealing with the issues of the morning after or how to know when it’s time to stop swinging.
