Swing Life Style (SLS) Fixes Photo Gallery Security Concern

So this is an interesting one.  It was brought to the attention of the administrators of Swing Life Style (SLS) during the week of October 13, 2014 that there was a security issue with their photo galleries.  It was possible for logged in users to view private galleries of other users without actually being granted access to those galleries by the owners of them.

Doing a search online I noticed a posting on a discussion board in August 2014 discussing ways to access SLS galleries that were private.  It is likely this discussion thread set off the administrators of SLS to address the issue.

It is our understanding that this photo gallery issue has been in existence for many years.  It could have been a useful piece of knowledge to those who were aware of it.  Imagine that they could see what members looked like prior to messaging them, see what they looked like before responding to them if they failed to open up their private galleries prior to initial contact, or see what people looked like on event guest lists without having to message each of them to find out.  

But all in all, I do find it amusing that it took SLS this long to realize this issue.  This incident does provide some useful lessons:

(1) Loose lips sink ships.  The idiot that posted the exploit on the discussion thread was an idiot if he ever intended to use that information again in the future.  Once any type of security flaw is posted publicly on the internet, everyone will know and then it will be repaired and no longer useful in very quick order.

(2) This is also a nice wake up call to those that think that posting any photos online can actually be private.  There is no such thing.  Don't post something online unless you are okay with the whole world seeing it at some point.  There are people still out there that think a script that shuts off right click function on a website prevents people from saving photos.  They must never have heard of print screen.  And after the celebrity nude photos leak from the iCloud, can anyone really think that once a photo is off your computer or cell phone it is really secure?

Obviously while such news may be concerning for those either already signed up to SLS or thinking of joining, I still believe it is the best website for facilitating swinging encounters in New York.  And SLS is not the only site with imperfect site designs.  Other sites have had security flaws as well.  Just be cautious with what you share online generally speaking and there should be no worries.

To Viagra or Not to Viagra - An Interesting Couple Dating Experience

For Saturday, September 27, 2014 we traveled to New Jersey for a date with a couple, Lisa and Pat. They had sent us a message on Swing Life Style (SLS) several weeks earlier expressing interest and had opened up their pictures. He resembles Joe Rogan and she is a short cute thin blonde. We made the two and a half hour drive from Long Island out to their part of Jersey (there was traffic) and met for drinks at a nice restaurant. 

Now before we continue, on this little excursion I took with me Viagra, which I have never brought along before when meeting a couple. I had ordered a small supply online about six months ago after a very bizarre experience where we met up with a couple who we had played with before, and for some reason things just were not working right. I think it was a combination of circumstances on that particular night and I have not had any issues since, but I decided that I wanted a back up plan just in case something like that arose again.  This particular couple had told us since we were traveling so far we could stay the night and I had a funny feeling that they may have in mind playing the entire night too, so I took a single 100mg pill, cut it in half, and put it in a little pill bag and took it along with us just in case.

Some of you may be wondering where I got the pills from.  I suppose you can just get a prescription from your doctor.  Not all insurance carriers will cover the cost of the pills; mine doesn't.  I just decided to go with Kwik Med.  As far as I can tell it is the only online licensed pharmacy for this types of pills.  

From doing my research and giving one of this bad boys a test run after getting them there are several things that come into play when you take it.  The guy taking it may get very flushed and feel hot, and the effects kick in within thirty minutes, not to mention when you get going, you can pretty much keep going for quite awhile.  I've since been able to pick out who is using it at different parties we've gone to just from their faces turning beat red before any action has happened.

We went back to their place and began drinking.  When we first got there Pat vanished for a few minutes and shortly after his head looked like an apple.  I was sitting there thinking, "aw fuck, he took Viagra."  I had no intention of taking it when we first got there, but I assumed this was going to be a marathon session.  I waited until we were a few drinks in and Lisa was down to wearing nothing but underwear.  I then went to the bathroom and popped my half a pill.  I have to say, this is the one time in my life that I was glad I took Viagra.  This girl rode me like I was a bull.  I think the four of us fucked for several hours straight, which I definitely could not have done without that pill.  

Now for an oddity.  At some point I came and went to the bathroom to clean off.  When I came back to the bedroom I was still rock hard.  I laid down on my back on the bed and Lisa began sucking my cock.  She then climbed on top of me to make out with me.  She was stroking my cock with one of her hands and then lifted up and sat right onto my cock and began riding it, no condom, completely bareback.  Now this is not something we do with couples and it wasn't something we discussed with Lisa and Pat.  I've had girls do this before and I just calmly withdraw and put a condom on.  There really is no point freaking out.  We continued to fuck in a variety of positions for some time and then took a bathroom time out.  When I came back from the bathroom, she was lying on her back.  I went down on her some more and when she came I came back up, made out with her a bit and she began rubbing my cock against her pussy and trying to put it in.  Again, no condom.  So I leaned back again from her and grabbed a condom and she actually took the condom from me, put in next to her, and closed her legs and turned her body.  I'm fairly sure she just denied me sex for grabbing a condom.  I don't normally come across girls that want to play without a condom.  Pete was not trying any of that with my girlfriend, so I am not sure the two of them even have had this discussion among themselves.   Even odder was that right before we first began having sex earlier in the night, she was the one that reached over onto the night stand and handed me one of my condoms to put on, so what changed?

We did have some more sex with a condom, but I have to say, the whole bareback thing came out of left field.  We then moved over to some sort of oddly shaped couch in the room.  I think the couch is specifically made for sex, but I haven't seen one before.  It looked interesting, but trust me, fucking on it wasn't really that fun. Maybe I wasn't using it right. When we first went on this couch contraption, she again tried for the bareback.  I fully understand why guys enjoy fucking bareback.  It feels great.  Better than with a condom on.  Why a girl wants to?  I really don't know.  My girlfriend really cannot tell the difference between the two with respect to sensation.  

 All in all my girlfriend told me Pat came three times.  While I only came once, I am pretty sure I could have came a second time, but just never got around to actually coming.  The wonders of that blue pill lol.  They sang our praises, we wished each other a good night, and prepared for bed. My girlfriend could not find her panties.  We looked high and low.  We left their home around 8:30 a.m. before they woke up; still no panties.  At breakfast that morning we received a text from them that Lisa woke up wearing my girlfriend's panties.  Pretty funny.  At least we know they weren't some odd panty collectors.  That may have been too much to handle.  

We actually liked them a lot.  More so than a lot of couples we played with.  Aside from the bareback thing, which is easily avoidable in the future considering I now know she has a tendency towards it, we had a blast and will probably meetup with them again.

Roulette/World II Friday Night Grand Opening Review

We decided to check out the grand opening of Roulette/World II in West Babylon, NY on Friday, September 26, 2014.  This is an on-premise club.  As with the typical lifestyle format, Friday nights allow single men, while Saturday nights are typically couples only.  We saw a couple we have been wanting to meet on the guest list, confirmed they were going, and decided to meet them there.

The venue is located at 92 Kean Street, West Babylon, NY.  This is right down the block from another on-premise club, Encounters, which is located at 45 Kean Street.  This caused us a bit of confusion.  The instructions in the Swing Life Style (SLS) event page indicated that to get to the club you turn off of Edison.  When you turn off of Edison you come to Encounters on the right hand side of the street.  Farther down the road on the left hand side of the street you find World II.  I would imagine there many have been many who intended to go to World II that ultimately ended up mistakenly at Encounters.

We got the last spot in the back parking lot.  Anyone that came after us would have to park on the street.  When you first enter through the rear door you are confronted with an extremely well lit room and a counter where you check-in and pay your entry fee.  For this night is was $35.00 per couple or $25.00 if you had signed up on the SLS guest list.  Single men were $50.00 and single women were free.  After checking in you are in the same well lit area with rows of sex toys.  There are also several rooms all of which had lighting that worked better for a lifestyle club.  There are men and women restrooms, a room that leads to a theater which was single men only with several couches and a large projection screen, another room next to it which had peep show viewing booths, and then another room next to that one called the "VIP Room" which we were told was couples only, unless a couple chose to bring a single male into the room with them.  If that occurred then that single guy had to remain with the couple the entire time while in the couples only room. This couples only room was a large open area, it had its own bathroom, there was a small beverage/food bar in one corner, there was a large flat screen television playing terrible porn, and about six couches against the walls of the room.  There were also two play areas which were anything but.  One was a small room with a sofa chair in it and the other was a room with a couch where the door couldn't close because the couch was in the way.

An important item to note is that they do not allow alcohol.  None at all.  They don't want you bringing your own and they do not serve any.

It looked as though we were the second couple to arrive.  There were several individuals running the show, all of whom were very nice.  They had shown us around and introduced us to a few different people.  As people came in it was obvious that this was going to be a much older crowd.  116 profiles on SLS signed up for the guest list.  At the time we left at around 12:30 a.m. there must have been about thirty couples in total that came through.  How many young attractive couples were there in total?  Three.  We are included in that tally.  Another couple we are familiar with is also in that tally, but for whatever reason the male in that couple does not care for us.  We have no idea why.  And then of course the couple we intended to meet.  There were two single girls that came, one of which was attractive and there was also a couple that came later in the evening with a gorgeous young blonde attached to him.  He looked like someone's grandpa.  I suspect that she was either an escort, mail order bride, or a sugar baby.

We more or less planted ourselves on one of the few available couches and waited to see if any prospects came in.  The party started at 9:30 and it wasn't until 11 that people really started arriving. We were friendly and mingled with any couples that approached us, but we just simply were not interested.  One couple asked to join us on the couch, so we scooted over and was having a good conversation until the male asked us if we were full swap.  My girlfriend told him we are, and then asked the same question to them and they told us he was full swap, but his girlfriend wasn't, that she only did girl on girl.  He didn't seem to understand how a guy could be okay with his girlfriend fucking another guy.  I'm sorry, do you know where you are?  My girlfriend tried pressing the issue, asking him whether he would be okay with it if it was something she wanted, which kind of made the whole conversation even more awkward and at this point it had already been pretty awkward.  So I said to them, "It sounds like you are looking for a threesome, you know there are two single girls sitting right over there on the other side of the room."  They excused themselves a couple of minutes later to get refreshments, which of course was the polite way of just ejecting from our conversation which had completely fell apart.  I suppose they had nothing to lose by trying, I take it as a compliment that they were attracted to my girlfriend, however, they should have either went for the single females or went to a vanilla bar if that is what they are seeking.  

While we were being distracted by their nonsense, the couple we were planning on meeting showed up and apparently ended up talking to that couple where the guy doesn't care for us.  So we let them be.  When that couple went to the bathroom together (why do couples need to go to the bathroom together?) we approached the couple we had been planning to meet and introduced ourselves.  And guess what, it turns out we already knew them.  We had met them two years back at Caligulas in Queens when they had first gotten started.  It is funny none of us realized it when we had exchanged photos on SLS, but as soon as we all started talking we realized it very quickly.   At some point they went outside to have a smoke, so I decided to go to the bathroom real quick.  I was gone for a couple of minutes tops, and apparently when I had gone to the bathroom a couple of single guys approached my girlfriend.  We were not happy about this.  Not that we have some fear of single men, but when we are told that single men are not allowed in the couple only area unless accompanied by a couple that invites them in, we expect the rule to be followed, especially on a grand opening night.  It brought us back to Bowery Bliss and when they did something similar.  The lifestyle is couples driven, the fastest way to make a venue fail is to make it about making money from single guys.

The hosts did say they were in the processes of making a seperate play area in a portion fo the venue that was still under development.  That may be a possibility, but this place already lost us.  If you want a swingers club to succeed, you need it to be (1) exclusive (pre-screen pre-screen pre-screen), (2) allow alcohol, (3) have real play areas with beds and some that allow privacy, and (4) whatever rules you have created, stick with them, otherwise you lose trust in those who are attending.  This place had none of that.

Our final verdict: Not recommended.
