Does this seem strange to you in a relationship?

If both partners enjoy the thought of each other sleeping with someone else?

Whatever floats your boat

I find that kind of kinky in a good way and if you both like the idea why not! wink

I dont think its strange, this is why people swing, i guess. Its not for me as i'm possesive but i can understand it in others.

the "thought" or the actuality?

lachesis Tue 23-Aug-11 17:19:25

No. If they're both on ths same page about it, it's entirely their own business.

Just the thought of it, not actually doing it, I couldn't handle that.

So you can handle the thought of it, but not the act itself?

Not for me but swinging is quite popular.

I'd say the thought of it would be as awfull as it actually happening.

why do you ask ?

There will never be a relationship that would not be broken by me seizing the opportunity to sleep with Johnny Depp...I don't care how much I love my partner, Johnny Depp is my ultimate.

So I guess it's fine to have a 'want' list but to act on it or to have names on it that you are most likely to meet/bump into is a little close to the cuff for me

Well to answer the OP, it's "strange" in a purely statistical sense - in that most people don't enjoy the thought of that.

But I can't see anything wrong with it - either thinking or doing. If it's what makes both partners happy, why not. They're lucky to feel the same way about it.

umm, it's nto very MN. But couldn't you just watch some couples porn? with a bit of swinging wink

Strange how? It's a widespread and common turn-on for men and women. Being turned on by the thought doesn't mean people do it or want to do it necessarily.

Perhaps the partner of the OP is wanting some swinging action?
