People In THESE 10 Careers Are Most Likely To Have An Open Marriage

Christine Schoenwald

Do you have any of these jobs?

executiveIf you think that open relationships are only for the very rich or people who worry about the rules of society — like bikers, hippies, and celebrities — you’d be surprised to know that many people with an open marriage are fairly traditional nine to five types.

They work in career fields just like you. That’s right! There are a number of IT, salespeople, and marketers who enjoy a non-monogamous relationships.

There are two main types (with some variations) of open marriage. If the couple prefers extramarital relationships emphasizing love and emotional connection, they have a polyamorous style. If the emphasis is more on sexual gratification and recreational friendships, the couple is engaged in swinging.

Internal statistics from OpenMinded, a dating site for open relationships, found that people with certain types of careers are more likely to be in open relationships. 

They seem to share certain personality traits that work both for their jobs, and for being in open relationships.

Here are the top ten occupations for individuals in open marriages, as well as personality traits associated with each job:

1. Engineers. They’re creative, organized, and curious. They like to figure out how things work and are great at solving problems, like how to get 8 mattresses into a playroom.

2. Entrepreneurs. They’re tenacious, flexible rule-breakers. Entrepreneurs are fueled by passion and need outlets for it. They’re also risk takers, so why wouldn’t they buck society’s norms and create their own rules for marriage?

3. Salespeople. A salesperson has charisma to burn and a great deal of empathy for other people. They can relate well to other people, so it makes sense that they’d want to have a number of different romantic relationships in their life. They’re also very confident, so walking into a room with a bunch of naked people having sex wouldn’t throw them off.

4. Financial Advisors. Someone who works in finance is a great communicator, is analytical, and is good at both teamwork and independent projects. They’re intellectually curious, and everyone knows that the brain is really the largest sex organ.

5. Executives. An executive is energetic, resourceful and courageous. They have great foresight and aren’t confined to the ways things are. An executive would be willing to stretch the boundaries of traditional relationships and explore.

6. Marketing. A marketer has a very outgoing personality, which makes him/her feel comfortable in almost every situation. They know how to get results, which is always a bonus when you’re talking about love and sex. They’re also very diplomatic — important when groups of people are involved.

7. Attorneys. Attorneys are whip smart, task-oriented, and speak their minds. They’re known to be resistant to authority, so it’s easy to see why they might prefer non-monogamous relationships. Bonus: they’re easily excitable.

8. Consultants. Consultants are self-motivated, confident problem-solvers who are good at communicating. An open marriage would be a good fit for a consultant; they’re very flexible and curious.

9. Managers. Managers are adaptable and strong communicators. They’re great at relationship-building, and if you want to have more than one relationship in your life, you’re going to need that skill.

10. IT Professionals. An IT professional is constantly learning. They like the lasest in technology, so they’re the ones who are going to have all the fun toys at the sex party.

Most of these jobs share similar personality traits: good communication skills, flexibility, personable, openness to new things, and problem-solving. It’s no wonder they’re open-minded and think unconventionally.

Study: Swingers Have Better Sex

by Katie Herzog

Social deviant and non-monogamy cheerleader Dan Savage is popping champagne and throwing glitter around the office after the release of a new study that shows he’s been right all along.

GETTY IMAGES

The study, published last week in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, was two-fold. First, researchers recruited participants online, both from Craigslist and various online non-monogamous communities and websites. They were divided into groups: monogamous and consensually non-monogamous (CNM), including those in open relationships or who practice polyamory or swinging. CNM participants were only included if they indicated that they had a primary partner. Those participants, which comprised 1,507 monogamous individuals and 617 CNM individuals, completed an anonymous survey that included questions about sexual satisfaction and sexual frequency. Only those whose primary partner was of the opposite sex were included, and half of CNM participants identified themselves as poly, a quarter as swingers, and a quarter as being in open relationships.

From the survey, researchers found that polyamorous people reported significantly higher rates of sexual satisfaction overall in comparison to monogamous people. More poly people (84 percent) also reported having an orgasm in their last encounter than monogamous people did (72 percent). However, the study found no differences in sexual frequency between poly people and monogamous people. Self-identified swingers, who also reported greater satisfaction with their overall sex lives compared to the monogamous group, reported having more sex than monogamous people.

When it came to people who ID as being in open relationships, however, the results were more closely aligned: Those in open relationships and those in monogamous relationships reported equal levels of sexual satisfaction and had sex with the same frequency, although those in open relationships reported orgasming in their last sexual encounter at higher rates (83 percent compared 72 percent).

Then, in an attempt to replicate their findings, the researchers did it again. This time, they didn’t specifically target CNM people in their recruiting and they didn’t exclude gays and lesbians, but the results were the same: CNM participants reported higher levels of sexual satisfaction and more frequent sex than monogamous people.

When it came to relationship satisfaction, however, the results varied. They found that while polyamorous people had higher rates of sexual satisfaction than monogamous people, people in open relationships reported significantly lowerrelationship satisfaction than monogamous people. Swingers didn’t differ from monogamous people in terms of relationship satisfaction, although, again, they reported more satisfaction with their sex lives.

So, why might non-monogamous people report more sexual satisfaction, if not necessarily greater relationship satisfaction, than monogamous people? “Consensually non-monogamous people may gravitate to sexual variety, and non-monogamy provides a certain amount of that,” says Terri Conley, the study’s lead author and a professor of psychology and women’s studies at the University of Michigan. “People who are consensually non-monogamous may also think that having a good sex life is particularly important.”

10 Reasons Why Spring Is The Best Time To Hook Up (In GIFs)

KATIE OLDENBURG

Ahh, spring is in the air! The bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping, the pollen count is so high you can barely see through a haze of yellow dust. What’s not to love? But the best part of springtime, by far, is that it’s the best season to hook up. Why is that, you ask? Let us explain…

spring1

1. Winter hibernation is ov-ah! After being bundled up for months, you’re ready to show off your bod, and someone out there wants to feel it.

spring2

2. Spring cleaning has commenced. Which means you can bring a new “friend” back to your apartment without being embarrassed by cobwebs and hap-hazardous piles of crap.

spring3

3. Spring Break. ‘Nuff said.

spring4

4. It’s the perfect temperature to get busy indoors or out. You’re not crippled from the cold when you take off clothes or forced to take them off due to excessive boob sweat.

spring5

5. Warmer weather means less clothing and less clothing means heightened hormones. Exposed skin is in your favor. Legs, skirts and crop-tops might as well be pornographic.

spring6

6. You’re no longer in captivity, so you (and everybody else) craves physical interaction. It’s like letting caged animals run around and play for the first time.

spring7

7. Extended daylight gives us more energy and elevates mood and endorphins.Mating season is real, folks. It’s science.

spring8

8. There’s more to do! Expect more weddings, sports, concerts, street fairs and nature-related things, all of which allow vast opportunities to snag your next hookup. Not to mention…

spring9

9. Outdoor drinking! Happy hours on patios, rooftops, decks and at barbecues increase the chances of nabbing a hookup by, oh, I don’t know…378%.

spring10

10. It’s a scientific fact that the most sex is had during spring and summer months.May the odds be ever in your favor.

Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Be Swingers, Ranked

Emily Ratay

swinger_1They make sex FUN.

The swinger’s lifestyle isn’t something that crosses everyone’s mind. It can be hard to keep relationships casual while still have a serious one, especially with emotions being so unpredictable.

I myself am not a jealous person in the least. I know that if there is something I’m worried about regarding my relationship, all I have to do is have an adult conversation with my partner. Of course, this isn’t always as easy as it sounds, especially if talking about something hits a nerve with your partner, but you should always try to work things out in the end.

Watch the video below to hear confessions from couples who are swingers:

That said, I don’t think I could get into the swinger’s lifestyle. I don’t think I’d get jealous, but when I’m in a relationship, I like being someone’s one and only. I know swinging isn’t permanent, but you definitely have to be 100 percent open to it before you try it.

But for those of us who are into swinging and can do it without getting emotional or jealous, I applaud you. I love when people can be totally open and confident about sex, don’t you?

But who are these people who are totally into the swinging lifestyle? Usually, those who have their emotions in check, for the most part. But more than that, it’s important to remember that just because these zodiac signs are into swinging doesn’t necessarily mean their significant others are, too.

In fact, they might be into swinging solely for the opportunity to have casual sex outside of their relationship or because they tend to jump from one partner to the next (if your horoscope is constantly telling youto take it easy with your relationships, this is probably you).

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but swinging can make for some complicated relationships. However, here are the zodiac signs who are swingers and are crazy about the lifestyle.

1. ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Aries feels confident enough in her relationship that swinging won’t change the dynamic. She enjoys trying new things during sex and with an equally confident partner, swinging is just another thing she wants to explore.

For Aries, swinging is all about getting to know new people and getting out of her comfort zone. She’s not a jealous person by nature so all she cares about is having fun, casual sex.

2. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

When it comes to relationships, Gemini can be incredibly flaky. She cares more about her own feelings than her significant other’s and often bounces around from partner to partner.

Swinging for a Gemini is just as similar as the dating life she leads. Be careful if you suggest swinging with her, though; she might have more fun with the other couple than she does with you.

3. LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)

Because Leo has such high standards for her relationships, you would think that she would be better in a causal, swinger’s lifestyle. Unfortunately, what she really wants is constant attention, which can be hard when you’re sharing partners while swinging.

That said, Leo is one of the zodiac signs who are swingers because not only is she getting attention from her significant other, but she’s also getting attention from the other partners. This extra affection is enough to brand Leo as a swinger for life.

4. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)

Sagittarius thrives in casual, carefree relationship, which can be good and bad for her. When swinging, she looks for partners with similar mindsets as hers so that there’s no confusion later on about what this relationship really means.

Wear Your Green This St. Patrick’s Day

stpatcondomSt. Patrick’s Day is this weekend. We all know what that means right? You got it! It is time to dress up in all sorts of green clothing and drink copious amounts of alcohol before passing out in bed in the early hours of the morning. True Irish style.

However, why not make that day a bit ‘greener’ and really show off your pride? Let me introduce you to the St. Patrick’s Day Condom Pack.

These condoms, as you can probably guess, are green. I mean, what better way to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit than turning your penis green during sex? It looks awesome! These condoms are provided in a sort-of ‘lollipop’ format (don’t try to suck on them though). By this I mean that they look just like a standard lollipop. Quite a conversation piece I must say.

These condoms are not just green though. All condoms have a slogan printed onto them. The ones you get are random. However, each of them is quite funny. They include:

  • Put On the Green
  • Four Leaf Cover
  • Kiss Me I’m Irish
  • Leprecondom

Wear With Pride

The condoms are constructed from Latex and come fully lubricated. They have a reservoir tip for your safety. Every condom has been hand packed to guarantee quality of the product. These really are unlike any other novelty condom on the market.

The wonderful thing about these condoms is that unlike other novelty condoms they are actually rated for safe sex. This means that you can actually feel confident using them!

Why Millennials Should Swing With Older Couples (According To A Millennial)

Trey Lyon, Blogger
Why Millennials Should Try The Swinger Lifestyle Before Judging It (As Written By One)

It’s not only single Cougars who are HOT AF.

As a now-32-year-old swinger who’s been in the lifestyle for a decade, I’ve always found it incredibly curious and frustrating that I was often either one of very few — or the only — “young” person at swinger events. And hilariously, I often still am.

The same thing seems to even be the case in nudism, for which I’m also an advocate, only in nudism it’s even WORSE. The age gap in American nudism continues to increase as the Millennial generation, whose helicopter parents raised them in a constant state of fear of “stranger danger” and the natural human form, resist these kinds of activities, lest they grow up with any semblance of a confident perception of self and others. But I digress.

It has been my experience that many twenty- and thirty-somethings suffer from irrational delusions of physical grandiosity and infallibility.

via GIPHY

And I state this as a decently fit male who has undoubtedly benefitted quite a bit from my own “body privilege.”

I’m writing about this because I hear these kinds of things said to me today ALL the time from young people. So much so, in fact, that many times in the past when I’ve attempted organizing groups of people my age to take weekend trips to swinger and nudist resorts or events, I have always received negative feedback and pushback from people my age.

These are some of the common judgmental responses:

“Well, how many other people our age will be there?”
“We’re going to be the hottest looking there, which means everyone will attack us and we don’t want to be around any fatties.”
“I don’t want to be around all those ugly old people.”

In this day and age, when not only mainstream entertainment but also pornography horribly depicts flawless bodies with perfectly-proportioned parts as the norm, and where websites and apps have turned us into some sort of dystopian society of mindless judgmental jerks accustomed to “swiping left” or “swiping right” on a human being after mere seconds based solely on someone’s image, it’s no wonder we’ve become a seemingly much more disconnected, polarized people who prioritize glitz, glam and a six pack over heart-centered connection and bonding with our fellow human.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” — Carl G. Jung

We rush into relationships to fill a void within us that is only our job to fill, and then we project our bullshit back onto our partners when they don’t match up to the projections we unfairly place on them while they’re on that imaginary pedestal we place them on early in the relationship. We are a mess.

And at our core we are insecure, wounded children who unconsciously continue to project our shadows onto other people by harshly judging them about everything that’s really begging for healing within us.

One of my heroes, Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung, suggested that everything we feel about (or see in) another person is comprised of about 75% of our own bullshit — our infamous shadow (that is, the unconscious aspects of ourselves) — which we project (in either positive or negative ways) onto others.

“The shadow is, so to say, the blind spot in your nature. It’s that which you won’t look at about yourself. …You can recognize who it is by simply thinking of the people you don’t like. They correspond to that person whom you might have been — otherwise they wouldn’t mean very much to you. People who excite you either positively or negatively have caught something projected from yourself … I don’t know whether you’ve had similar experiences in your life, but there are people I despise the minute I see them. These people represent those aspects of myself, the existence of which I refuse to admit to myself.” — Joseph Campbell

Writer Bernhard Guenther elaborates:

“All of us can engage in shadow projection at any given moment, without exception. Ask yourself, how many times have you looked at photos of a person and projected qualities (good or bad) onto her/him that are actually completely off-base? How often have you been ‘attracted to’ or ‘infatuated’ with — or ‘repelled’ and ‘offended’ by — a person, based solely on the content of his/her posts or their appearance in pics? How often do we project emotions and ‘tone’ onto other people’s posts that are not really there in the context of the content, but are merely arising out of our own unconscious shadow?”

So what does it say about us when we look at something in another person (positive or negative) and judge them for it? If that which we are judging THEM for wasn’t also present in ourselves, would we even be able to perceive it?

via GIPHY

Back to applying this to swinging and nudism, I say it’s these millennials’ loss.

Some of my VERY best experiences in the swinger lifestyle have been with folks not of my generation. Not only have I found most (read: not all) of these “older” people to be much more laid back, kind and generous in personality and pleasure giving, but their experience and wisdom have proven incomparable.

There was a time in our culture when it was cool to hang around older people and gain knowledge from their insight and wisdom.

But in today’s TMZ, reality-TV, youth-idolizing, often materialistic society, we’ve not only lost that, but we glamorize and prioritize the antithesis.

Nevermind the fact that the stereotype of swinging events being mostly attended by older, unattractive, and out of shape people is demonstrably untrue, but if more of these judgmental “young” people would just simply get over their shit, take the plunge and be a little adventurous, they’d see that truth for themselves.

Not only that, but they’d help CONTRIBUTE to the tide turning and there actually being MORE young people at these events.

But for some reason, it’s much easier for most people to shirk personal responsibility and remain judgmental of others.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you’re a body shamer or if you have issues with “old people,” “fat people,” or “unfit people,” then you probably shouldn’t go anywhere near swinging or nudism … OR public pools, shopping malls, theme parks (and DEFINITELY not shopping at Wal-Mart) or any social gathering that challenges your paradigm.

If you did, I guarantee you’d find several sure signs you’re dealing with some less than healthy self-judgment that you’re not wanting to look at critically — and everywhere you go will likely cause someone to trigger this discomfort in you.

Porn is fantastic, but it’s important to understand that this. shit. is. FANTASY, you guys. That isn’t real life.

So many of us aren’t even cognizant of how we’re being programmed by the entertainment we constantly feed to our minds, which instructs us to prefer certain races, body types, looks and ages.

Consider (and mind) your programming.

Let all that judgy shit go. Life is MUCH too short to mess around and miss out on the potential you have for immeasurable fun now. By the time YOU are in your 40s, 50s, and older, you’ll be sitting around complaining about how you wish you had done all that wild and crazy stuff back in your younger days, “when you had your youthful body.”

Trust me, I hear it from older people ALL the time.

Hindsight’s not only a bitch, but it’s 20/20. Don’t be “that guy” or “that gal” who wakes up one day in middle-age and realizes you wasted your youth away being judgmental of all the “old, fat, ugly people,” only to realize … you’ve become one.

Project LOVE and tolerance onto others and that is what will greet you everywhere you go.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain

28 Sex Acts You MUST Explore Before You Die!

What do you have on your “f*cket” list?

“What’s on your list?” Sasha asked me.

“I’m … um … my list?”

“Your to-do list. You know, swing lifestyle to-dos.”

“Oh! I hadn’t really thought about it.”

“Well, you should. Tell some nice people your list, and they’re gonna want to help you check things off …”

She winked.

What’s on yours, and what do you think we forgot?

Let us know!

Listen now: There are few acts in the pantheon of sexuality that carry with them so much intrigue, coveting, and fear — such as double penetration and its more advanced siblings, double vaginal and double anal. For one thing, these really can’t be done in a monogamous relationship. Oh sure, we can use dildos and such things, but that’s not really where the intrigue lies, does it? On this episode of Life on the Swingset: The Podcast, we discuss double penetration or “DP” in its many forms and talk other varsity level sexual moves.

An Award-Winning Porn Star Wrote This Choose-Your-Own Erotic Fantasy Novel

We Assume She Had Valentine’s Day in Mind…

BY SAM EICHNER

book-bedThis Valentine’s Day, stay in, light some candles and deliver an impassioned reading of the interactive story Publisher’s Weekly is calling “a fun way to enjoy a smorgasbord of sex scenes.”

The story in question is called Night Shift, and it’s a choose-your-own-erotic-fantasy written by none other than Joanna Angel, an award-winning adult film star and director whose name you may vaguely recognize (but will adamantly pretend not to). It came out last week—just in time for you to surreptitiously purchase it at work and hide it under your bed until February 14th.

The book, which is “mostly SFW,” revolves around a recent college grad named Taryn, who takes a graveyard shift at a seedy sex shop in Pasco County, Florida (there are presumably few un-seedy sex shops in Pasco County, Florida). According to the release, your objective is as follows: In a sketchy and sexy world filled with tissues, gallons of lube, sex toys, tiger print, and swinger parties, help Taryn choose her way as she learns what happens in this small, unexpectedly kinky town. From butt plugs to cross-dressing truckers to being held-up at gunpoint over dildos, experience this fun and sexy journey along with Taryn, as she goes from shy and sweet to skilled and empowered—but how she gets there is up to you!

While getting held-up at gunpoint over dildos seems a little far-fetched, even for a choose-your-own-erotic fantasy set in Florida, the book has garnered solid reviews—and given Taryn’s inexperience, it can provide so-inclined readers with an informal, empowering education on kinky sex.

Hey, it’s either this or Fifty Shades Freed

The 20 Best Winter Olympic Bulges

5 Game-Changing Facts You Have to Know About Olympic Bulges

The secrets of male athletes’ bodysuit bulges are finally revealed.

Not all bulges are created equal and in the world of high-speed winter Olympic sports like skeleton and speed skating, what you’re packing and how can sometimes mean the difference between coming out on top and, well, not. The reason: wind resistance. According to skating suit manufacturer Alan Marcosson, owner of Pyro Apparel, dressing athletes for these competitions is all about making them as aerodynamic as possible. That means setting modesty aside as well as employing some seriously high-tech materials. These aren’t your average sex-shop spandex bodysuits; this is advanced stuff — high-tech, air-slicing, bulge-defining gear. Here is enough bulge trivia to get you through any cocktail party:

1. The bodysuits athletes wear are called skins or skin suits.

2. Under Armour designed the skins worn by American athletes in collaboration with defense contractor Lockheed Martin.
The fabric is textured with tiny dips and bumps, like the surface of a golf ball, in order to reduce drag, but they do not come with any sort of built-in underwear or additional padding around the crotch. One of the skins designed by Under Armour for the US Olympic team.

3. Skins have to be as tight as possible without restricting motion.
“Even the littlest wrinkle can create drag,” Marcosson says, so a proper fit is essential. That’s why Under Armour custom-made each skin used by members of the US the Olympic team.

4. Short track speed skaters have to wear a cut-resistant protective layer under their bodysuits, but other athletes do not.
That under-layer is often made of Kevlar or Spectra and is designed to protect short-track speed skaters when the razor sharp skating blades of their opponents kick them. “[the suits] are not very comfortable,” Marcosson says. “They add bulk and can restrict movement, but people have been seriously injured and even died is speed skating, so now they are required.” That protective under-layer also offers an extra bit of bulge padding that skin suits alone do not, which partly explains why some Olympic bulges are so much more prominent than others.

5. Underwear is often not worn at the highest levels of competition.
“It’s not like you can’t wear underwear,” Marcosson says. “During the rest of the season these guys probably all wear something under their suits, but I guess when the stakes are this high, they don’t want anything restricting their movements or adding bulk.”

In other words, the bigger the competition, the bolder the bulge.

Gold medals all around!

As the Winter Olympic Games start tonight, one thing is for sure: Tight uniforms mean massive bulges. Shop through our full catalog of winter wieners, unaffected by cold weather. It’s a great time to be patriotic, nearly half the list in on Team USA. Hey! Do we see some socks in there?
