You've heard the term GAYDAR, being the inborn ability tospot a gay person on sight. Most of us have this ability to varying degrees. Natalie and I came up with names for other types of natural RADAR that humans possess.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADAR: The ability to spot Henry Winkler
ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDAR: The ability to spot a pirate
BRAYDAR: The ability to spot a jackass
CHEDAR: The ability to spot a cheese lover
GRAYDAR: The ability tospot someone who is lyng about their age.
GREYDAR: The ability to spot aliens among us
KRAYDAR: The ability to spot a supercomputer
LAYDAR: The ability to spot someone who you could possibly sleep with
NAYDAR: The ability to spot existentialists
PLAYDAR: The ability to spot a pedophile
PRAYDAR: The ability to spot a born again Christian
VADAR: The ability to spot a Star Wars Geek
[QUOTE=curiousagain]You never know, Britpair, did y'all trademark that??
Well, I doubt JNCC could claim Playdar trademarks either. http://www.femmedomme.com/cgi-bin/ul...;f=47;t=000094
I never thought of it as "original" since it was so obvious I that figured somebody, somewhere, had already coined it. It was only original to me, because I don't have the time to hang around all those kinky sexual websites like y'all do...
Apparantly I haven't kept my Swingdar or Playdar on. My buddies and I were in a mixed pool league for about 5 months over the winter. Quite a few teams had women players. One in particular always wore sexy clothing with heels . I got to know her and her husband pretty well and complimented her often on her outfits and how comfortable she was with her sexuality. I spoke often of how her and Tammy would get along pretty well. Also spoke to them about Hedo III as we went during the league. I told them they'd never partied til they "partied nekkid for a week" She asked me "well, are there swingers there?" I said "sure.....if that's what interests you." Neither of us followed up on that.
Anyway, last month while sitting with some friends at a Couples Dance, when who do you think sits down beside me.......yep, that couple. Funny part was they sat there because they new another couple and didn't notice us til they sat down. I about fell out of my chair when I turned to say hello .
Looking back, if she'd have asked "are there people in the Lifestyle there" regarding Hedo, then I'd have picked up on it. But I really gotta work on the playdar thing
We are new with very little experience but before we were aware of swinging I always had a feeling about my husbands former boss. It was the way he looked at me whenever we were at a company dinner. One time he asked hubby if he could kiss me. Now that I think about it I bet he was a swinger, and I just didn't know but there was a definate vibe with him. I didn't know the wife as well but she was always with him and knew what he was doing. The funny thing is I probably would have considered swinging with them if he had asked! I always thought he was hot!
The wifey can spot 'em a mile away. In fact, sometimes it seems like she actually attracts people who are in or curious about the lifestyle.
Nothing wrong with that!
Well, I was about to say that the vibes can be perceived even by vanilla people, even when they cannot interpret them properly.
Before we come into the swingers arena, the swinging subject never brings up with out vanilla friends and known people chats, and I mean people we hang up since 20 years ago.
After few months of BHS (becoming happy swingers) we began to suspect we had "swingers" signs in our foreheads, suddenly the same vanilla people, separatelly and in several oportunities start talknig about swinging or some related stuff, I mean from commenting about being curious to go to a swinger club, talking about how odd a gal would feel with another gal in a threesome, and so forth.
In the other hand, we're friend of this couple who already told us before that they had a threesome with another gal (they were throwing a line that we didn't grab and politely made clear we rejected), and several months after we BHS, this guy openly made an invitation (we rejected again, just a matter of taste, yuck).
And yes, it happend to me to notice the vibes from a couple of couples around us, but since we hang up in the same vanilla group, they may believe we're vanilla too (even if they feel the vibes), and in fact, we wouldn't make a move inside that group, so... it's hard to tell.
