Wind, rain and DTS

I’ve got plenty to tell you about, so I’ll try to keep things concise. I mentioned a wedding in one of my previous posts (the hen night was an eye opener!), that went better than I expected considering what went on during the hen night! There was only one fight (this was in SW London remember), but as the alcohol flowed during the reception both the bridesmaid and the brides mother got a bit vocal, which was a bit risky since the bridesmaid REALLY misbehaved on the hen night. Evidently the notion of “what happened in the club stays in the club” was being tested to the limit!!
OK, now for the vacation itself. I mentioned that we were going to spend some time in a naturist campsite, well that didn’t happen. The weather here in the UK has been vile for the past month. The plan was for Phil and I to meet up with our very close friends Garry & Jacky who invited us to join them when we found that our first week of vacation coincided with their second week. We met them in Wales where they were camping (not naturist !!) and joined them in their 6 man tent as there was plenty of space for just the 4 of us. Unfortunately the rain started midway through the first afternoon and barely stopped for the rest of the week!(ok, we did get one afternoon of sunshine!). There was little for us to do, so once we had done all the walking (and there is lots of scope for walkers in Wales!) we just hibernated in the tent with copious bottles of wine!
It was during the Wednesday afternoon that something remarkable happened, those of you who have followed my blogs will know about the relationship Phil & I have with Jacky and Garry(read for more information)The campsite was quiet, the holidaymakers were obviously all off somewhere, so Jacky suggested we retire to our bedroom compartments for a rest or some DTS (Day Time Sex). The way the tent was laid out meant the bedrooms were opposite each other and the nature of the relationship we all had meant we didn’t feel the need to zip the bedrooms closed. It’s probably no surprise to to read that we didn’t rest! I have to admit that there is something wonderfully erotic and intimate about making love with your partner in the company of another couple doing the same. Being able to see as well as be seen brings a whole new dimension to the process, hearing the soft sighs and gasps, the wet sounds of loving and ultimately the moans of orgasm certainly speeds up your own climax!
Our second week was no better than the first so we didn’t bother to travel to Devon where the naturist campsite is located. Yes we lost our deposit but the fuel we would have wasted would have been more anyway!
This past 10 days have been interesting for me. On my return to work I was greeted with an invitation to attend a conference on breast feeding being held by UNICEF. This was fascinating but more importantly, while there I was invited to attend a 5 day seminar and training program which will give me full UNICEF accreditation. I would be a fool to turn down such an opportunity, so I will be off to London next Sunday.
So there you are….sorry I have not been very active here on WordPress, but you will now know why I have been absent!

Our photos

If you go through my past posts, those of you who have read my musings before will notice that the sexually explicit photographs have gone! I’m talking about the ones that showed fellatio or penetration, not the ones that are essentially “naturist” shots. Lord knows that at 53 I no longer get worried about nudity, over the years I suspect that countless people will have seen me naked either on beaches or in spas etc. I don’t even mind that some will have seen my “girly bits”, you try climbing in or out of a hot tub without giving all those present an eyeful!
However, I frequently post stuff here that is not about swinging and I don’t want to deter readers from returning by blatantly posting images they might find offensive.
So what I think I might do is set up a separate blog somewhere with links from these blog pages so that I can post the more controversial stuff for those of you who want to see it. Blogspot seem to be ok with explicit material.
If enough of you post positive comments I’ll go ahead. Let me know what you think.

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.
