    Episode 10: The top things we've learned

    Thank you's

    - Mr and Ms Swap Fu count down the top ten things they learned in the lifestyle. The podcast started Feb. 24, 2010

    Ms Swap Fu's Top Ten
    10. Clubs are uber cool.
    9. Travel plans to Swing are off the hook. If you haven’t done it, try it.
    8. Your Vanilla friends probably adore you more than your friends in the lifestyle.
    7. Passive guys in the lifestyle are boring. Guys that show up to have fun are my cup of tea.
    6. Single guys have a place in the life style.
    5. Strap-ons are out, and I will be experimenting with some other devices.
    4. No, you don’t look younger than you really are.
    3. Swinger upkeep is a pain in the ass. But you do it because you want to swing.
    2. Ask for what it is that you want. Specifically and unequivocally. Changes you make from the lifestyle can affect every aspect of your life.
    1. The number one thing I have truly internalized is that my husband rocks.

    Mr Swap Fu's Top Ten
    10. The founders of Harley Davidson must have been swingers
    9. Minimize your time on the dating sites. Lot's of chatters, picture hunter and punters. Meet people in person ASAP then go from there.
    8. Focus on your goals. What do you want and who do you want it from?
    7. Escalate sexually. Don't freeze up once you're there, build passion by escalating foreplay.
    6. Look out for your partner. He or she may not be in the same headspace.
    5. Keep meeting people. You may know some cool couples, but there are always more out there.
    4. It's not about them, it's about us
    3. It's better to be fun than sexy
    2. Watch your booze
    1. Who dares wins

    Listener Questions
    1. Do we experience jealousy in the lifestyle? If so, how do we deal?
    2. Drinking... does everyone get blasted to play?

    Episode 7: The Good, The Bad and The Hot Tub

    The last two weeks have been a blur. This podcast is 45 minutes long and we only hit the high (and low) points.

    Topix:
    - Shout out to Swingercast interview of the guys at Desire. Very revealing and informative. Specifically: Girls need to flirt too!

    - Also, taking a break in the middle of the evening to regroup with your partnet

    - And how to handle being deleted as a friend in your social site

    - Other shit, like listening to me lisp through the name Super Secret Swinger... sad sad sad. Great podcast though.

    Update the "You might be a Swinger" list

    We're going to cover a few topics in our next Fu Cast. (You like the name?) Impressions and experiences from last weekend, what's coming up, who's going down. The usual. lol One of the things we would like to do is update the "You might be a swinger" list. I know, it's a tired bit, but I think we can have some real fun with it, and fuck it, it's our show and it's free. ;)

    The orginal list can be found here:
    http://www.swinglifestyle.com/articles/swingers-you-might-be-a-swinger-if.htm

    Do you have any suggestions for the updated list? Drop us a line... comment it, tweet it, e-mail it.

    We will post the updated list on this site in a few weeks.

    Echo No More...

    Just a quick technical update and commentary from the Fu.

    WARNING: Tech Stuff Follows

    I produce the Swap Fu Podcast using Sony Vegas Pro. My background is in video production, so it's just easier to use Vegas than learn an entirely new piece of software. We record the podcast using USB stereo headsets; I use a Plantronics that folds up and Ms Swap Fu uses a Sennheiser. Vegas puts each headset on its own channel and I can adjust the levels of each in real-time or in post. Very nice since I don't need to dick with a mixer or a separate audio interface. Also, the headsets can be used for Skype, gaming, etc. Anyway... it's the way to go if you're considering getting into the podcast game IMHO.

    As we're sure you heard in our podcasts, we've been plagued by a nagging echo coming from one or both headsets. I couldn't seem to shake it! We changed the way we faced each other. Sat closer, furhter away, offset 90 degrees. I messed with the levels. Nothing. The echo wouldn't go away.

    Finally, as a last-ditch effort, I opened up the track effects in Vegas to apply a "Gate" filter, which I heard could help with problem. You can imagine my surprise when I found that there were already affects applied to the track; a noise gate, an EQ and a compressor. I deleted the effects from the track and recorded a test. Nice and flat with no echo. These headset mics are really top notch... at least for podcasting purposes. lol

    Anyway, I think I solved the problem and we should have echo free podcasting from here on out. Thank you as always for listening to our ramblings. The next episode should be a hot one. :)

    Best!

    Episode 5: Happy Birthday, Cabana!

    No sex per se in this Epsiode. Just the Fu's look back on their friendship with a very special man. Mostly just impressions on how friendships change over time. We hope you find it interesting. Next the next episode will surely be chock-full of prevvy goodness.

    In meantime, Happy Birthday, Cabana!

    Episode 4: Night Out Couple Date Hotel Style


    This time the Swap Fu shows you language is only the SECOND best thing you can do with your tongue. :)

    Catchy intro right? Nothing but the best for our listeners... Both of you. lol.

    Just kidding! We have mobs of listners and I'm freaking out about it. Who would think anyone would give two shits about a couple suburbanites getting nasty with the neighbors. lol

    Hotel style, you say? Listen to the podcast and look at the picture... not that dramatic, but very cool for us. :)

    Enjoy Number Four,
    then call out for more...

    Expanded Show Notes and Other Musings

    Mr. Swap Fu here...

    Sorry about the rather anemic show notes last. Not much to write down really and at 20 minutes, you can get through the Swap Fu podcast quickly. Big fun at the club Friday and our new connections more than made up for the disillusionment of that Tuesday night stand up.

    I'm going to try to post another podcast next weekend. We have a date with the Spanish-speaking couple Saturday. Ms. Swap Fu is worried that the female half and I will get tired of translating. My hope is that nature will take it's course and the "international language" will take over. We'll see. :)

    I've been having a lot of fun on Twitter. I guess it would have been cool to send a few from the club Friday, but that's not what I was there to do, If you know what I mean.

    Episode 3: Real-Time Porn Going On!

    The first date that wasn't

    Ms Swap Fu and I started recording a new podcast last Tuesday night. It was supposed to recount our experience with our first date with another couple. We met them on SDC, exchanged a couple e-mails and they seemed like a good match. The long and the short of it is that we were stood up. Nice, right? Here we are, just barely dipping our toes (and other appendages ;) into the swinger waters and we get stood up, something that never happened to us in our single lives. Crushing!

    So, after waiting at the agreed-upon location for more than 40 minutes, we decided to call the number we were given. No answer. It was the male half's mobile and we did not leave a message. Why feed a troll, right? Later that evening, we received an e-mail from (supposedly) the female half saying that the reason they didn't show up was because the male half forgot to remind her of the date. So, just to be straight, they BOTH knew about the date. I do not know what's sadder; that even with two of them, they still miss appointments, or that the female half thinks she can absolve herself for any blame in the matter by saying it was the male's responsibility to keep her schedule.

    Ms Swap Fu and I went on and on for about about 30 minutes in the podcast about what had happened. What if we had kids and had had to arrange for a siter? What if we were completely new to the lifestyle, anxious and apprehensive and had this happen? The conversation turned pretty negative pretty quick as you can imagine.

    Since neither of us think that our reaction to this situation represents they way we generally feel about the lifestyle, we've opted to not post this podcast. We are going out to the club this weekend and expect to have a great time. We've decided to spare our listeners the bad vibes and hopefully post something positive next week. I'm sure we will touch on the fact that we were stood up in the podcast but, since more than a week will have passed by then, I'm sure our perspective will be more measured.

    Until then, have a great week. Your friend, Mr Swap Fu!!

    ps. I'm positively green with Envy at all the lucky couples heading to Desire next week. Have a great time folks! We'll get there eventually, and It. Will. Be. On. lol

    Gratitude

    I was pleasantly surprised when John from the Swingercast was the Swap Fu's first Twitter follower. Now, from his podcast you can tell is a great guy, and I'm sure he follows us as a courtesy because we follow him. Still, it make us feel accepted at some level.

    Last night he tweeted that he liked our first Episode. All we can say is we're very honored, the material comes from the heart, and we hope the our excitement and joy at being in the lifestyle comes across half as well as it does in the Swingercast. I've been listening to the Swingercast for some time now, and honestly, it is the reason why I felt confident that Ms Swap Fu and I would find community in organized swinging. John and Allie's accounting of their adventures in the lifestyle have paved a way for us and many others to follow.

    John and Allie: keep the great podcasts coming! Producing podcasts in not a trivial undertaking. We recognize and appreciate your efforts.

    We're on iTunes!

    After about three hours of cyber-toil yesterday, I was able able to get the podcast up and running on Feedburner. The last thing I did was submit the Podcast to iTunes. I guess it worked because I received an e-mail saying we were approved. Hurray!

    I don't know why I'm excited by this. My intention with this podcast is to use it as a way to chronicle Ms. Swap Fu's and my experiences as we join the Swinger community. An oral history, so to speak. lol We do hope that our podcast is helpful to others, if for no other reason than because it serves as an added voice. Maybe some will learn from it, maybe not... but the words will be there and be counted.

    Episode 1: Swap Fu Begins

    Show notes:
    A very brief introduction of Mr. and Ms. Swap Fu is followed by the reason we decided to get "formal" about swinging. We talk about our first club visit. First impressions of the place and the people. We also have a fun bit about PDA. We end the podcast with a brief plug for Planned Parenthood.

    I did a quick and dirty job of editing out anything that would identify our city, the club we attended and the people we met there. I think it's clean enough. ;)

    Impressions:
    This podcasting shit isn't easy. A lot clunkier than I thought. Getting the ball rolling was a challenge, but once we hit our stride, we couldn't shut up. lol. I cut it back to 24 minutes or so, but we could have done an hour without a problem. I think we'll keep it to 20 - 30 minutes every other week. The next edit will go quicker. I moved to my old editing environment, Sony Vegas. It's meant for video but it also does audio editing very well and it is what I'm used to.

    The music is Jah Roots playing "Soul Trouble" which was released with a Podsafe license. I may switch it next time something a little more modern. What do you think?

    Introducing Swap Fu!

    This podcast is meant as a journal of Swap Fu's journey into the swinger lifestyle. Our intention is to post a podcast every other week chronicling our experiences and discuss topics that are (hopefully) of interest to the swinger community and to each other. While listening, we hope that you either find yourself nodding in recognition, laughing at our mistakes or maybe learning a new trick or two for your arsenal. Just don't call the cops; we don't like cops.

    This Blog will be a show notes repository and place for feedback. Comments welcome, but be nice or go home. :)

    I won't get too in depth about who we are, where we came from and how we got into the lifestyle... you can find all that in "Episode I: Swap Fu Begins".
