SwingLifestyle is one of the oldest swingers dating and hookup sites on the internet. It was founded in 2001 and you can tell by the interface that seems a bit outdated. Dated interface aside, SwingLifestyle is somewhat effective thanks to the huge member database. It’s been around for ages and that’s something that works to our benefit as users. It’s also pretty cheap compared to many other dating and hookup sex sites.
You do get what you pay for as far as not being up to date and many of the users may have moved on to better sites, but there’s still enough action on this site to make it a decent choice for local swingers. What’ll I’ll say is that you can definitely afford to give this site a try. However, I would save most of my money for a more modern user-friendly site that has more active users and more discovery options. Check out my SLS review before you make any decision to join this site or any other.
Swinglifestyle Site Summary And User Experience
One of the most attractive things about SwingLifestyle.com is how easy it is to use. It has an old yet simple layout that is easy to navigate and it has some good features. I did end up finding a pretty girl to spend time with my gf (at the time) and I. She was a little older than the girls we were used to finding on other hookup sites.
This site has a lot of users, but I had fewer responses using this versus the sites I tend to use daily. The main reason I wanted to try this was because a girl I was fucking was a swinger at one point in her life. I wanted to experience that lifestyle and she helped me do just that. There are definitely enough great features to keep you busy, but I’m just not sure about the variety of members that they have to choose from. I like young college girls and this site seems to cater to a more mature group of women.
One good thing about this site is that it’s loaded with features. Besides browsing member profiles, you can visit the swinger forum, look for clubs in your area, read swingers stories, find a party, buy a DVD, check out the swingers blog and more. There is definitely enough to keep you busy. I’m just not sure how much of it actually leads to a face to face encounter and a live swinger experience.
I definitely liked many of the women I found on SwingLifestyle and they were pretty damn cute. Unfortunately, a lot of the hottest ones were a little on the older side. I don’t mind as long as they are hot, but I like a girl fresh out of college from time to time to play around with. The younger ones that I did find did not answer the messages that we sent. It’s not that my girlfriend and I aren’t desirable because we had a few experiences with some college girls on other swinger sites we have visited and we did a search in virtually the same area as we did at SwingLifestyle.
IMing and Profiles
I was impressed with a lot of profiles at SwingLifestyle. However, some of the best just didn’t have time to respond. It’s as if they were not interested or did not exist. I found it a bit strange that there was no video or audio chat on the website. Video and audio chat are what my old gf and I would use to seal the deal on sites and this site doesn’t have either. If SLS had these features, I would probably be able to give it a better review. I did fuck girls using the site so it’s not a complete waste. However, video chatting is far more important and effective than pictures today. I mean, with Snapchat style sites that exist, I’m surprised everyone doesn’t offer video chat.
A SwingLifestyle app was introduced a couple years ago. Most likely it was done to help the site get current with the times and has had some updates and the look has been redesigned since. The app can be downloaded for free at the Apple app store or at Google play. The features are Who’s On, Hot Dates, Quick Search, Events, Mail, Friends and Add Picture. It’s not a huge improvement on the site, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
One of the best features of SwingLifestyle is the price. You can build a profile with a free account, but you need to pay to use the features and message other swinger members. Standard membership price is $14.95 a month which isn’t bad at all. You can save money by committing for a longer period at once. If you purchase three months, you pay $9.66 a month. If you purchase six months, you pay $8.16 a month. You get the best deal when you pay for a year membership and you only end up paying $5.75 a month. That’s almost too low to pass up.
Conclusion: SwingLifeStyle Is An Old School Swinger Site That Works…But It’s Not Flawless
The sheer size of SwingLifestyle and its history is enough to give it a try, but don’t expect too much. If you are serious about your swinger experience, you may want to join a more sophisticated and modern swinger dating site, but this one is good to start off with if you want to ease into it cheaply and you don’t mind older ladies.
