    There is a new show starting this week on CBS called Swingtown and it has got me wondering if this will be a good thing or a bad.
    Here is what the show is supposed to be about.
    I am surprised to see a show like this on something other than cinamax or HBO. I will admit, I am actually kinda excited to watch this show. If it is portyed right I think it will be a good thing and may even lead to couples talking more about what they want and what they don't. I am afraid that the conservative types might label the show as "EVIL!!" and that will be that.
    Also I am curious what other members of the FS think of it, will it be a good thing or a bad blow (pun intended ;)) to the freaky world?

    EDIT:Here is a link to the shows website. http://www.cbs.com/primetime/swingtown/

    We were just having this very conversation with the BF & GF recently. I am interested in watching it to see how we are portrayed. However, it is set in a different time... kind of the begining of the "sexual revolution" so we will have to wait and see.

    Yeah I watched it. They were a few things about it that bothered me but I will continue to watch it. I think it will be interesting to see how things play out.

    Props to CBS for taking a risk but I wish something like this was on cable so we could have nudity. Unfortunately it's not a very interesting show :hs:

    I'd have more hope for it if it was on HBO or Showtime.

    wife and i watched it last week and it was very :naughty: got us in the mood for some fun.

    but they've already started to show little bits and pieces of jealousy, so we'll just have to wait and see how that turns out

    I missed the first episode but watched it last night. Not as graphic as I thought it might be, but maybe it was just that episode.

    I think it is pretty on-target about with some of the things.
    Like Suzanne : We're not swingers & What did we do? These are pretty true-experience emotions for a first time.
    The curiosity & the jealousy - yep
    I'll be interested to see how they deal with all these things in the long run.

    Agreed. I have watched both episodes and I think they are doing a great job with it and showing the different emotions. No there are no raw sex scenes in it, but I think that adds to it's charm.

    That show will get cancelled most likely before it reaches its 4th episode.

    Well I caught parts of last nights show. The show is fairly predictable in where it's going, but it is interesting. I think they're doing a fairly good job of playing out the different feelings and events. The only negative I've really noticed is there doesn't seem to be any couples on the show who are completely happy with their swapping.

    About last night's episode:
    So, there is a couple who know about our little 4-some but they haven't treated us any different since they found out. The rest of the stuff seems pretty realistic to me.

    I actually like this series. Good show for noobs and people who have a bad stereotype of swingers to watch.

    Way to go CBS!

    I believe that's the point. Swinging isn't completely about sex..etc. It's also about long-term friendships and networking among other things..

    basically that swingers are like everyday people, but with a hell of a lot more KINK. :)

    It appears that tomorrow night's episode is about breaking the rules. The "previews" don't always mean what I think they are going to though. I do really like the the show.:)

    I've caught 2 episodes of the show. it's alright i just never get to watch fully since it's on while I'm at work.

    gonna hav eto catch up with it OnDemand. It's alright, entertaining and more a piece on how people in general deal with change, relationships and communication.

    I'm surprised and disappointed they brought up cheating so early in the show ... I would have figured that would be a end of season cliff hanger, and I didn't think it would be that couple that would cheat. Also in the last episode when Tina had Luke at the house I thought they were heading to the bedroom. So she would have cheated first ... or maybe I missed the idea that they were heading to the pool or something. :dunno:

    It will be interesting to see what comes of it.

    We are in love with the show. I can't wait till Thursdays.
