You may be innocently sending out secret symbols to swingers without even knowing it

If you’ve ever found yourself on the receiving end of a little too many compliments from a couple who live down the road from you, don’t flatter yourself - you may be sending out secret symbols to swingers without even knowing it.

This innocent mistake often appears to lie in front-garden decor and fashion trends, so if you don’t swing that way, you may want to re-think the appearance of your home or wardrobe.

Now, before we tuck into these suggestive swinging signs and symbols, it’s important to note that those in the swinging community are just as choosy with their partners as anybody else.

These symbols are definitely not one size fits all, and it’s all dependent on the person and what community they identify with.

As confirmed by a member of the swinging community, John Junior, one symbol that is often attributed to swingers is a pineapple, especially when placed by or on the front door.

A pineapple kept on a patio could suggest that a swingers’ party is currently happening, while an upside-down pineapple could suggest that someone is looking to head to such parties.

The fruit can also be worn on clothes to help those in the community identify others who wish to engage in consensual group sex or the swapping of sexual partners.

This behaviour can also extend to the online community, where swingers use the pineapple emoji during messaging.

“I use a lot of pineapple emojis,” John told LADbible of the popular fruit symbol.

Another sign that shows you could be a part of the swinging community is the wearing of black rings.

However, in order for some swingers to further identify themselves with such accessories, they often sport the swinger symbol of ‘the swing’ on their jewellery. 

John explained: “Black rings are a sign, but each community can have its own logo depending on the group. Swinger jewellery has its own mark, too.”

Even wearing the colours red and black, ‘which I do a lot,’ can be indicative of being a part of the swingers’ community, John admitted.

Meanwhile, having Pampas Grass can also be a sign of being in the swinging community.

However, it does appear to be ‘the older generation who have these’ plants in their front garden, according to John.

“Gnomes is a classic sign too, and pink or purple garden decor is a sign, but it’s mainly all changing between older and younger generations.

“A lot of the younger swingers tend to wear more jewellery as a sign.”

Whilst sporting these symbols accidentally could come as a shock for those who innocently like the colour red or fancy having a gnome in their garden, they do serve their purpose for those in the swinging community.

John continued: “These signs play a role to help people know that someone is a swinger, it’s great for swinger to swinger knowing they are in a club, but I know a lot of people older and younger who have no signs or symbols are very silent about it.”

For John, swinging is not just about sex, it’s about ‘community’.

“Swinging is more than just swinging, it’s a community meeting open-minded, like-minded people who are on the same wavelength and that’s good for your mental health and mood.”
