Swingers confirm secret signal to attract other couples that can lead to very awkward conversations
| Last updated
A pair of swingers have revealed the signal they give out to other couples to invite them into the bedroom. Prepare yourself for the sex-ed you never learnt in school:
It's a sign so innocent it could very much lead to you stumbling into a 'playtime' session you had no intention of joining.
Cruise ship passenger Blogionista Travels certainly found out the hard way.
But what is the secret signal all swingers are aware of which they can subtly flash to one another if they want a raunchy rendezvous?
Prepare to never look at this pretty everyday object the same again.
The secret signal? An upside-down pineapple. Liv tells the Sun the motif has 'become big in recent years'.
She explains she wears a gold necklace with a pineapple charm on to 'discreetly' show she's a swinger.
The 30-year-old continues: "That’s usually code that they are into the lifestyle, although you have to be careful how you ask.
"But on a recent holiday in Cancun, Mexico, there was a woman in a full-on pineapple dress with pineapple shorts and a pineapple shirt, so they were obviously into it."
However, sometimes the subtle sign can prove a little too subtle and lead to awkward run-ins.
Gage notes if you see an upside-down pineapple in someone's shopping basket, it could be more accidental than a sign of a fellow swinger.
To check? Gage explains: "You can ask them, ‘Are you in the lifestyle?’ But if they look confused then you say, ‘Ignore me!’ and run.
"Another sign is a black wedding ring on your right hand."
Liv uses her Instagram account to raise awareness and educate others about her life as a swinger.
The 30-year-old offers advice on how to handle jealousy as well as how to reject someone in a swinger's club.
Liv tells the Sun how 'shocked' she and Gage were when they first became swingers 'at how many people out there are meeting up with other couples'.
She reflects on their journey as a couple together: "We met our first couple six weeks after we joined and on the first meet, there were no expectations. We were just going to head over for a drink and see how we felt about it. But we went all the way."
Gage adds: "You meet one person, you marry them, and that's the only person you have sex with, so when you go outside of that social norm, it’s treading new waters and you don't really know what to expect.
“But the couple that we met were so welcoming and helped us ease into it."
