Fun - Can be Dangerous Sometimes? Certainly not, insist quite a few men and women in India who are regularly switching partners to add a dash of sexual fantasy to their marital lives.
“It was getting far too boring to meet up with friends at a party and drive away with the most suitable companion for the night. Far from being a raunchy adventure, it was turning into tedious and predictable chore,” says Kapil Mehra, a garment exporter who often swaps wife Radhika for other women.
Mehra and like-minded couples are constantly devising new ways to make the game more interesting.
Sample this variation for example. The swingers book a venue where no eyebrows are raised about sex romps. It could be a posh hotel or a farmhouse. Private residences are also used, but sparingly. Next they hire the services of a ‘qawwal’ who keeps the gathering in good humour with songs full of lewd lyrics. Fillers in the party are usually sex-plicit jokes cracked by the chosen couple of that particular night. They personally handpick all the jokes.
Once everyone is in the mood, close dancing with different ladies follows. The rocking affair comes to an end when couples throw their car keys into a bowl. The women come out in a parade and pick the keys that catches their fancy. All that remains then is to drive off with the owner of those keys!
“It’s normal to be a little inhibited when you start. But once you get into the flow of things, it becomes very easy to mingle with all the men,” says Chanda Agarwal, the wife of a Delhi-based businessman.
She even admits that flirting over the dining table is fun. “I remember the time when I was passing around the tandoori chicken. Breast or leg, I asked this gentleman as I leant over. He sure got the hint!” she guffaws.
“Contrary to what many people may think wife-swapping is serious business. You have to give it all the time and attention that it deserves. Otherwise it could end up becoming a very lousy experience. Only when you begin well, will it end well,” quips Subhash Chugh, a transport contractor.
