Re: Weird Question- Swinger Propositions

Is your wife hot? That's usually what starts those conversations.

When I was 19, my GF and another girl were partying and they decided they wanted to swap. The other guy and I thought each other's GFs were hot, but still declined to swap.

Years later, when I was married to my 2nd wife, the topic came up with 2 different couples over dinner. We politely declined both times.

Re: Weird Question- Swinger Propositions

Now see, this is where I fall down. While I've never had this swinger thing happen, I once did have a girl ( dive master, and real cute, and young) leave me a long and obvious line of hints. It was only about an hour into the home bound trip that a pothole dislodged the dime and it dropped. I was so stunned by my stupidity and innocence that I could find a way to be flattered. Duuuuh!

"Was this on a multihull?"

No, the OP's location is on Mexico's west coast and that boat's still in the Caribbean.

Re: Weird Question- Swinger Propositions

So were they polite when you declined?

As long as they didn't get offended or wierd, take it as a complement and move on.

I once got a come on from a very beautiful young server at a restaurant after dinner with my father.

When I noticed her Cinderella faced watch she smiled, looked me in the eye and said,

"Her legs turn around to tell the time. I get off work at 8:20."



I immediately got her drift, but played dumb in front of my dad.

Puts a whole new slant on the phrase "swinging at anchor".

Re: Weird Question- Swinger Propositions

Oh Jeez! I thought this was more stuff on the "swing keels" thread. To swing, or, not to swing, that is the question! Lead on MacDuff!

I got five bucks that says Dad ain't dumb. More likely he was just playing that way in front of the youngster.
