More on Swingtown...and Denver?

Had to share this article on the new CBS show "Swingtown". While some say "it's a mess", it's growing on me. The episode featuring Harry Ream's of Deep Throat fame was hysterical. My parents had a reel-to-reel projector just like that! OMIGOD! What were they up to when I wasn't around? ewwww!

And, the seasoned swinger couple who experienced a 3-way (MFM) with her ex-boyfriend made me cringe. (MFM just not my "thang"!) I personally don't think that's a good idea anyway. The previews gave a sneak peek at cheating between this couple. I'm guessing that the MFM which included a previous sexual partner may have been the instigator.

Anyway, here's the article. Enjoy!

When It's Swingtime in the Rockies

Just got copied on a form letter sent by one Bradley Guildner of Thornton to CBS regarding Swingtown. "The offensive content clearly violates our local community standards and does not reflect your license obligation 'to serve the public interest,'" he writes. "I urge you to refuse to air future episodes of Swingtown."

Hey, Bradley, I'm deeply offended by the series, too. Here's one reason why: It's boring. Here's another: It's allegedly set in a "local community" I thought I knew very well -- Winnetka, one of the towns that fed my high school. But the producers aren't naming any names, and if any parents were up to such shenanigans in 1976, when the series is set, the kids didn't know about it.

(Although even as I type this, it makes me feel a little squirmish about some of those fathers who drove me home after I babysat their kids while they were off doing -- what? Each other?)

BTW, Winnetka doesn't have anything on Denver when it comes to swingers. According to our highly suspect calculations, there are more swinger clubs per capita in Denver than in any other major metropolitan area.

It alawys amazes me the bias people show to those of us who have different lifestyles. This biasis transends the straight world and carries right over to those in alternative lifestyles. Why should a MFM make you cringe and why don't you think it is a good idea? Sure it might not be your thing but as a bad idea? or making your cringe. Does it make a vanilla person cringe to see couples share spouses or girls to do girls and if it does why should it?

Oh, bdenied, you missed my point:

The problem I have is the committed couple playing "with her ex-boyfriend". Yes, a MFM doesn't do anything for me personally, but I have absolutley no judgment about anyone else's pleasures.

However, I personally don't think that playing with an "ex" is a good idea. The previews of Swingtown gave a sneak peek at some cheating going on between this couple, and my guess was that the MFM which included a previous sexual partner (of hers) may have been the instigator.

We've known several couples in the lifestyle that did NOT survive this type of play. Jealousy reared its ugly head.

Thanks for commenting so I could explain myself better.

xoxo, Danni

the key is jealousy...without jealousy we can all survive sex with other partners.My wife doing an ex does not bother me because I dont get jealous but I understand your point since you cleared it up a bit.
