Many who are new to the lifestyle seem to seek swinging partners who are at their same level of experience.
Of course I always advise that one should seek what makes them comfortable but a first swinging encounter may be much easier with others who are more experienced.
Certainly never proceed into anything that makes you uncomfortable regardless of the experience of those you are with. However, someone more experienced can take the lead in helping a positive swinging experience occur.
As with any swinging encounter, there should be a mutual connection among all involved. If you have that mutual connection, don’t allow the level of swinging experience to halt your interest. Simply allow events to happen naturally.
