Etiquette is different from community to community, and Galway swinging is no exception. Just as you might expect, if you plan on trying swinging in Galway there are certain unspoken community guidelines you might want to bear in mind things designed to help you and everyone else have a brilliant time. Here are a few of the most important tenets to remember.

#1: Consent is Paramount
No matter where you are or who you're with, no means no. Someone being at a swinger's event does not change the fact that they might not want to touch you or kiss you, and nobody ever has the right to pressure someone into doing something sexual that they've indicated they don't want to do, not ever.

#2: STIs Aren't Fussy
Use barrier protection, no matter how 'clean' the Galway club you're in is. STIs don't care if someone has slept with one person or a hundred, if they're well-off and well-dressed or gutter-broke and wearing nothing but a pair of ripped jeans they'll infect anyone just the same. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that someone doesn't "seem" like the kind of person who'd have an STI always use condoms and other barriers.

#3: Jealousy Will Happen
It's not the end of the world if you find yourself feeling a few pangs of jealousy at the idea or fact of your partner going off with someone else. It's actually to be expected just remind yourself that they love you and are coming home with you at the end of the night, and go find yourself someone to swing with while they're busy. Jealousy itself doesn't mean that this idea isn't working; it's what you do with it and how you react to it that makes a difference. Remember to talk it through with them afterwards, as well, and find out how they felt, you might be surprised to learn they were just as nervous as you.

#4: Politeness Costs Nothing
There's a lively and colourful swinging community in Galway, and if you'd like to become a part of it then the beast way to do so is to be nice to people. Thank your hosts, be well mannered, respect the requests and requirements of the people around you, bring a bottle or two to parties, and don't get involved in arguments or altercations it's all perfectly sound common sense, but it will help you get ahead in the Galway swinging lifestyle better than any amount of sexual prowess could ever hope to.

#5: Make Friends First
I've left this one till last, because it essentially ties in with all the above points. It's by no means essential that you only swing with people you've already befriended, but it certainly does help it means that everyone knows, likes and trusts everyone else, and you're all very well set up to make sure that everyone else is happy with what's going on and how things are working out.
Follow these rules, and will find yourself feeling right at home in the Galway swinging lifestyle.
