Our alternative lifestyle

Those of you who have read my other post will know that I have intimated that my husband, Philippe, & I have tried a bit of sexual experimentation. This came about mainly because at the age of 44 & the menopause just starting to come over the horizon, I felt that time was getting a bit short. We have been married for years, but as in all marriages, there sometimes is a plateau where sex is comfortable but not so exciting any more. What I didn’t want to do was go to my grave wishing that I had at least tried a few things. We have a very open relationship, we don’t believe in keeping secrets & having discussed my feelings with Phil, I knew that he had the same thoughts. We just didn’t know quite WHAT we wanted to do! I should also point out that sexually we are very adventurous, we have tried just about everything that a couple could do, including anal sex (not our favourite!), all forms of oral sex, mutual masturbation, a bit of mild bondage (again, not high on our list of favourites), all manner of things that a couple can do together. What we had never tried was incorporating other people in our intimate lives.
We spent some time researching ways of livening up the sex, but the answer came from an unexpected direction. We were having a drink with some close friends of ours one evening & somehow the conversation came round to holidays, what we/they had planned for 2002 & where they/we had been in 2001. During the conversation they confessed that thy had gone on a long weekend break with some other friends we didn’t know to Paris. It transpired that one evening they had all ended up having sex together in the same room! No partner swapping you understand, but they none the less all ended up naked doing what comes naturally with their own partners. And they loved it!!
I have to admit that this sounded very appealing, Phil & I talked about it at length on the way home & the upshot was that we started to look into the possibilities of finding a couple who would entertain the idea.
Things proved harder that we expected but we finally found a really nice couple through MSN groups. They were called Will & Angela, lived near enough to make it possible to visit without having to stay overnight but far enough to ensure we wouldn’t bump into them too close to home!. They were an odd couple in some respects, Angela was in her late 30s making her 6 years younger than me while William was in his late 50s making him some 7 years OLDER than Phil!
We exchanged emails, then photos and finally made arrangements to visit them. I have to confess that I was filled with a mix of eager anticipation as well as trepidation. Here we were, going to visit a couple we had never met in the flesh, probably going to end up naked with them & theoretically have sex while they watched (& presumably be having sex too!). Quite a surreal plan….
Will & Angela greeted us warmly, we had brought along a bottle of red wine & some dips, we all settled down in the lounge & chatted….about all sorts of things, vacations, children (they had none), work. It all added to the surreal atmosphere! Eventually Will steered the conversation around to the reason for our visit & I took the bull by the horns & bluntly asked him how we were going to go about things. He suggested that we all transfer to the patio where we found they had a hot tub. Bliss!! Will, Phil & I got naked but Angela stayed behind in the lounge a while. She eventually joined us & we got nice & relaxed in the warm water, I could have spent the whole evening in there! When we finally got out, Angela handed out towels & we returned to the lounge, where we found out what had delayed her. She had closed the cutains, lit scented candles & scattered cushions around. What followed can only be described as one of the most erotic & intimate experiences I have ever known. Since that evening we have indulged in some pretty adventurous fun, but that very first encounter with Will & Angela was by far the sexiest.
The knowledge that eyes were watching us, the visual impact of being able to watch them, the warmth of the bodies in close proximity all led to a highly charged atmosphere. I know I came quite quickly, so did Philippe! After, we all lay there in a warm, companionable silence. I realised that we had shared something very special, although Will & Angela were experienced swingers, there was something very intimate & private happening between us, we became very close friends from that evening on.
This was only the first of many evenings we spent in the company of Will & Angela (as well as others in due course), our journey down the road to sexual hedonism was just starting.
