We, voted all of our lives. Before we were together we were both active in what can be considered swinging, 3 sums group sex etc... After we were married we took a break for about 2 years to be together and have our first child and then started same room and soft swapping, which evolved into full swap. After that the only time outs we have had were for kids (2 more) and those were short breaks and we kept up our friendships through the 2nd trimester for both. Once we were done having kids we kept up our activity untill 2000 with our smallish group of about 10 couples, then things went way south, 2 of our couples sepperated and 1 moved away for work. the rest of the couples in our group were either of the soft swap type or they were more friends of the others.
At this point we were left with only 1 couple and 1 single female who were still active. The 5 of us still got together for about a year and then our single decided that she was getting married and dropped out as well, It turns out that she was the glue that held us together, and the other couple faded away soon after. At that point Leah and I started to go to the local club events, and we had a blast we met so many wonderful people and had such an awesome time every month. About 6 months later Leah came to me and asked what I thought about starting our own off-premesis club, at that point there were lots of rumbelings about how the other club was being run. We talked to a few of our friends who like us were unsatisfied with things that were going on, and they thought we should go for it, So we did and have been having a blast ever since.
