New Swinger Resolutions

I generally think that New Year’s Resolutions are silly. Let’s face it, most of the time they’re hard to stick to and by February, we’ve stopped saying, “New Year New Me” to everyone and for good reason.

So I think this year, I think I’ll aim for some more attainable goals based on some lessons learned throughout our Scheduling Sin adventures in 2023.

Too much ice cream is a bad thing

The one thing that Mrs. Sno and I got really right in 2023 when we started the podcast was to do an every two week release schedule. That gave us the breathing room to do the podcast without feeling the pressure of having another one ‘due’ just around the corner. Some of our fans have asked that we release content more frequently, and that is a huge compliment. But for us, this pace is just right and, most importantly, it’s sustainable.

But despite our comfortable release schedule, there is still quite a lot going on with the Discord, X (Twitter…when can we stop parenthesizing this???), and of course now this website and our incoming content contributors. For me it stokes a tremendous creative appetite. I’ve learned a TON this year and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it…but there have been a lot of those minutes.

So this resolution is about compartmentalizing the time I spend thinking about Scheduling Sin and all of its pieces because I still need to be on top of everything else in our lives and I’ve also found putting it all aside to be refreshing sometimes just to clear my mind.

Fishing is about strategy when Scheduling Sin

I think it’s time we consider shifting our approach from cultivated individual meet ups to scheduled meetups and club attendance. Not entirely, perhaps, but it seems to take as much effort and in some ways more to meet people online, chat, screen and schedule a meeting somewhere only to determine whether or not we want to take things any further. It’s sort of like doing all of the preparation to go fishing knowing there’s only one fish in that pond and if you can catch it you may not want it.

Earlier this year, we hosted an impromptu meetup using the SLS Hot Date platform. We only gave a day or so notice but several couples and singles responded with interest. We ended up having a great time and meeting a new play partner. I think this is a great way to meet like minded people for fun while creating more efficient opportunities to meet play partners. I’d like to see this become a monthly activity.

Where else can you enjoy all this swag?

Hotel Parties. We have amassed enough swinger paraphernalia now that we need a place to enjoy it and we certainly can’t do that in muggle world. We learned from Jo and Alex that the hotel party is where this all comes to life. We can be our obnoxiously loud swinger selves and go nuts on the fun. If you’re intrested in checking out a hotel party for yourself, take a look at Play Champagne, we love their events.

My goal now is to attend two hotel parties in 2024 and to really host a great room party at each one. We have this concept of hosting a 10-15 minute social game at the top of every hour – we think it could be a blast.

What are your naughty New Year’s resolutions?

As always, we want to hear from you. What are your resolutions for 2024? Perhaps you’re just getting started and you’re excited to go to your first club or meet up. Maybe you’re experienced swingers and you’re ready to try a lifestyle cruise. Let us know what you’re up to and thanks for listening!
