The Park Slope swinger emails revealed!

Perhaps you’ve already raced through Amy Sohn’s Prospect Park West in three sittings at the Barnes & Noble on Seventh Avenue. (And if you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for? If the answer is, “an extra $16.50” put a copy on hold at the library here.) Or maybe you saw the recent New York Times’ piece, which reported that part of her book is based on a couple of swingers who actually posted on the Park Slope Parents listserv a couple of years back looking for willing couples to romp with. Funny because, who would volunteer to sleep with the mother superiors and candy-ass dads who populate the PSP message boards? (We paid our $25 to join so leave us alone.) Isn’t there, like, a Swedish frisbee club you could hit up? Where do swingers find each other these days, now that Plato’s Retreat is a distant memory of a pre-AIDS era? Burning questions, all. In the mean time, here’s a reprint of the original swingers’ posts, courtesy of PSP, followed by a couple of choice comments.

Hi,
We are one of you, a really nice slope couple with kids who occasionally
indulges in some soft swinging. We thought we’d put it out there, if there
are other folks who might be curious about this. We are not part of what
they call the “lifestyle,” but have had a few really fun experiences that
have spiced up our lives. We are mid 30’s, and some of you may know us, so
we have made sure to keep ourselves anonymous, and we ask that you do as
well, to keep discretion. (we made a new email account). We don’t know if
anyone is interested, but we thought this would be an ideal place to meet
like-minded, bright, imperfectly attractive, professional, thoughtful and
friendly people. We’re not sure how to go about this exactly, so if anyone
has any input (please be nice) or interest, let’s communicate. We can be
reached at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Single moms are of course encouraged to
say hi also.
Look forward to seeing what might come back.
A & A

A&A,

I consider myself a forward thinking, liberal Park Sloper, but PLEASE!!!! If
this is a legitimate post, you are both out to lunch. Have you checked the
name of this listserve lately? PARKSLOPEPARENTS! Last I knew it was about
help and support and an exchange of information focused on PARENTING in PARK
SLOPE. Did it ever dawn on you that kids might read some of these postings? Find
another outlet folks!

I’m not a swinger, but last time I checked, parents were sexual beings too.
I appreciate A & AZ freshly reminding us that we all express ourselves in a
variety of different ways. Thanks!

  1. I like how they’re open-minded about single moms. That’s very inclusive. Also, is there a working definition of “soft swinging”? Is that like, what, second base?

  2. great to see people are active and enjoying sex (smile) so many ppl complain about “no time” or “no desire”. I don’t get it. This Romance Angel is bringing back “desire” for 2010. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!-Coco, Organic Passion Coffee.com
