Full Swap - Full swap has no real sub-groups and is quite straight forward ~ It is wife-swapping for fucking, plain and simple. It is completely hardcore, the ultimate in sexual adventure, and not for the possessive or jealous. This can also include women who like to have two or more men servicing them at once in a gang-bang (if you’ve never watched a woman do DP in person, you’re really missing something), and can certainly include lots of girl-girl action. Full swap couples make up about 25% of all swingers, and if you ever find yourself in a full-swap encounter, leave your inhibitions at the door, strap-in, and get ready for a ride that you will never forget. While we all know that there’s nothing like a new sex partner, the trade off is that another guy gets to fuck your wife. So do a head-check and find out if watching your wife screaming in ecstasy while she takes another man’s cock to the hilt is on your list of fantasies.
In personal ads you’ll find a great many people that say, "we’re soft swing but will full-swap with the right couple". This is totally normal, because swingers know that the night and its rules can change when the vibe changes... leaving your options open doesn’t mean you can’t change them back later, so remember to stay open-minded and enjoy yourself.
