Intro & what is MeetCouples?
With the global shift towards arranging hookups online, it comes as no shock that swinging communities are moving their activity to the web. Like many countries, the UK has a long history of swinging couples getting together for wife-swaps, orgies and threesomes. Key parties and the old “keys in a bowl” get-togethers still exist, but the internet let's these alternative communities organise group sex meets far easier and also get to know each other before meeting up in person.
All of this has led to online swingers clubs becoming very popular indeed, as such swinging communities are now easier to find and more accessible. Many swinger and dogging specific sites exist to help couples meet at local sex events for no strings fun, but we've decided to review Meet Couples since it is generally regarded as one of the more established places to find swingers online.
Using the site is simple on any device, as you would certainly expect. You can sign up to the site as a couple looking to hook up with other couples, as a guy or girl looking for a couple, or as a couple looking for a man or woman to spice things up in the bedroom. Couples can be lesbian, gay or mixed. The site isn't just a typical dating site with a swingers front page either – there are lots here that show the site has been tailor made for the swinging communities of the UK.
Some examples of this include the sex parties that you can look through via the sex events calendar on the site, providing members with an immediate overview of the frequency of swinger parties and also when and where the next sex meet-up is scheduled. Moreover, Meet Couples has an online sex shop built in, allowing couples who join their swingers website to browse toys and tools for improving their sex lives between (or during) swinger hookups. There's also a fair amount of member blogs and guidance articles on everything from the basics of wife swapping to how to behave at orgies.
Finding a partner to swap or include in your sex activities is very straightforward, with various simple ways of browsing local swingers in your area via tabs on the site such as 'Gallery', which lets you look through the pictures that members have added, or 'Hot or Not', providing a Tinder styled option that let's you quickly flick through member images and profiles. Searching for members to contact is free on the site but you are prompted to add your own photo (alone or with your partner) as well as inputting some basic information on who you're looking to meet, enabling the site to present you with potential swinger matches.
Contacting other members of MeetCouples is free in some ways, but generally if you're looking to get chatting to couples online or arranging threesomes then you do have to upgrade in order to use the instant chat, email, webcam or chat room features.
Is it good or bad?
All in all, the time we spent reviewing MeetCouples.co.uk was positive. There are a lot of UK members to get chatting to, not just those who are members of London, Birmingham or Manchester swinging communities as we had initially suspected, but actually in various parts of the UK. We tested as far North as Aberdeen, Scotland, as well as looking for swingers throughout various cities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and there were always people around, often online at the same time. Responses were generally quite fast and the number of time wasters that were reported by our reviewers was minimal compared to other similar online sex sites.
At Online Dating Reviews we believe that the key to successful hookups is to try niche specific sites, and online swingers groups certainly fit that description. The members are all looking for the same thing, open minded and ready to take things to the next level. For this reason, we can only see sites such as MeetCouples becoming more popular as time goes on. This site itself is a great place to start your swinger search online.
Remember, you naughty swinging couples, it makes sense to try more than one online swingers community to give yourself the best chance of living the alternate lifestyle you're searching for. Have fun!
