 Creating Sexy Pictures

3. The 10 (hidden) Golden Rules for Best Swinger Profile Pictures

 

Whether we like it or not, swinging is an image based hobby, and there are some general rules about what images to post ! Having said that, we admit ourselves that the more mature swingers in our me time you time group think they understand more about a couple by reading their words, rather than the photos that they post.  These guidelines generally apply to both swinging couples and swinging singles.

 

1. Show recent images
The number of people that post pictures that are out of date is incredible. We would all love to be 10 years younger, but at some point you are going to get found out. We’ve heard people say that when a couple arrives at a date, and it’s obvious that they have misleadingly posted photos from their youth, they simply leave ! By all means put up flattering photos, however, you don´t need to show all the bad bits. There should be some link to reality.

2. Tidy up
Before you take the photo, check the background !  In the background of photos we have seen piles of washing, DIY projects, washing up, etc, etc. You don´t need a film set, but just make sure it looks at least clean & tidy. We hate to say it, but serious swingers do look at the scene to see if it belongs to someone they would like to get to know.

3. Share the limelight
If you are a couple, include both of you. It´s not that complicated !! We all know that women tend to look better than men (apparently!), but missing the man completely while showing 58 photos of the lovely lady – this just sets alarm bells ringing. The first problem is that there is an assumption is that the man must be some sort of ugly,  fat, old, badly dressed beast. The female half of a couple reading about you would really like to see what the man looks like too, so that she can decide if she likes him.

4. Less is more
You also don´t have to have a set of swinging porn pictures that look like a gynaecological text book. Because we all know what they look like,  and whilst it is certainly of interest, a couple of images are probably enough. On the blogs, women in particular,  have said that they do not need to see a close up shot of a cock in a profile. Neither do they need an overload of other women’s bits. Men, on the other hand, never seem to tire of looking at naked women´s bodies ! Having said all that, there are plenty of people out there that want to post these pictures,  and also plenty that want to view them. So, what we are saying is that what you put out is what you will get back. So make sure that is the match you want to attract.

5. Swinger photos don´t all have to be naughty
A few photos of you in the countryside, or on a boat, on holiday, etc help to give a little flavour about who you are and what you like. While people are not looking for new best friends on SDC, they often want people who have something in common,  so clothed photos that reflect who you are, are always interesting to see. On the subject of location though, if you are into something specific, like beach swinging, or if you are looking for other caravan swingers for example, then post pictures of you on the beach or swinging in a caravan ! If you just want a bit of fun, then post pictures of yourselves just having a bit of fun.

6. Avoid showing your faces
Unless you are happy for any new profile visitor to see them of course. Stickers, masks over faces, blurs, etc are all fine – people understand. Remember that it is easy to become a trial member (it´s free !),  and the default setting is that these trial members can see your first photo (but not any other photos) unless you change that setting on your profile. So don’t forget to check your profile settings. Of course, if you are out & proud as a swinger, then by all means embrace it and show your gorgeous faces. If you’re not, then there are private albums where you can keep face photos, and this is password protected. By the way, an awful lot of full time members have privacy settings that don’t allow trial members to see their pictures. However you need to sign up properly ( i.e. pay !) to get any further and see all the images in a profile.  We would suggest signing up for 3 months (about £40) . It won’t break the bank and of course we know it´s worth it ( and so are you !). Currently there is also a double time bonus where your 3 months is automatically extended to 6 months

7. How many swinger pictures to show?
5 to 15 images is probably plenty. Showing 200 photos can be a bit overwhelming, especially when there are 10 from one location, 25 from another (in the same dress), etc. Yes, when it’s this number, it is usually of the lady only. The pictures are meant to highlight what you look like,  so think of them like your holiday snaps… pick out the best few and people will be very happy with that.

8. Be selective with swinger niches
For example, if you have only 5 photos and two of them show you tied up during a BDSM session, people do not know if you are a massive BDSM fan and it is really important to you, or,  whether they were just two great photos that you love but you only get tied up once a year on your birthday ! Same thing for girl-on-girl photos.  If you are not very bi-sexual,  then don´t have 70% of your photos showing you kissing women.

9. Pick your main picture carefully.
People often keep the same main picture for a long time and they become very recognisable if you are on SDC every few days looking through galleries of speed dates, travel plans, etc.  We all recognise certain main images and they sort of become ´your´ image.

10. Private albums
You can create several private albums.  Most people have a private album that shows their faces, and they have a password that they can send if somebody requests it. You can also have an album for a specific niche like, location, specific sexual interest like BDSM, year the pictures were taken, etc.

4. How to take great sexy pictures

 

In advance – treat yourselves. Then maybe make it a gift on the day of the pictures to make an ever-lasting event of it. Get the champagne and strawberries in and set aside enough time.

Some people use professional photographers. It’s not always an option though, and to be honest when we have seen the same poses in same studios with same props it kind of loses impact. If you do have professional pix, don’t use too many and intersperse with plenty of spontaneous, natural ones. That’s why holiday pix , i.e. sexy holiday pix, also work well.

It really does get the best pictures when you are having fun. So get creative, and in the mood, by choosing a good time when you can both relax and have a giggle ( and some serious sexy time) doing it. Set the scene with sounds and smells and props that lay a great foundation to getting the most sexy you.

Enjoy !

2 cups of coffee a month... or... unlimited sex ???

Trial membership leads to full membership

… but why is FULL membership so important ?

l

Be ACTIVE, not passive

As a full member, you are in control and you can contact who you want and enjoy seeking out the members that interest you. Trial members cannot initiate any contact.

Be seen by ALL members

Full members can see all the other members, and all  of their photos. (Many of the full members have chosen to block trial members from seeing their profiles. Also trial members can only ever see the 1st photo of a profile)

Z

Gain CREDIBILITY as a full member

As a full member, you are treated as part of the community by the other full members. SDC is about trust, and full members often feel that trial members have not earned that trust yet.

Be more SUCCESSFUL

Just like in regular dating, the more brave you are the more successful you are – it helps if you make contact with others. But trial members cannot contact full members & they must wait to be contacted. (You can reply if they contact you first, but unless you look like Mr & Mrs Clooney then good luck with that one !)
