In our most recent mailbag, someone asked a question about swingers in the Oklahoma City area. Here was the exchange:
Not a Swingle writes:“I have been hearing a lot about swinger couples around OKC and suburbs and the stories have been told to me by people who live in different communities/school districts who don’t know each other. Is there a swinger epidemic accompanying this flu? Are some married couples really not as happy as they portray themselves on facebook and their Xmas cards? Or will I receive Xmas cards next year with swapped spouses? Do you think a lot of the swapping started at Thunder watch parties?”
Actually, I don’t really hear a lot about swingers. Then again, I don’t hang out at Friends on Memorial and Russell’s, so I’m not that engaged in swinger circles.
One other question, if we had to come up with a list of the metro’s most likely celebrity swingers and were not allowed to include the Mathis Brothers, wouldn’t Mike and Marla Morgan have to be number one? I don’t think anyone would be surprised if they were swingers. Number two would probably be Jack and Ron.
Well, it looks like I didn’t do my proper research. Number two probably should have been Jed Castles and his wife. She kind of looks like the Pioneer Women’s little sister. Check out this video from last Friday’s newscast:
Okay, it’s not that bad, but before you know it Jed’s going to start giving the weather forecast while wearing a silk robe. Seriously, who would have thought that the Bob Moore Bus Stop forecast would be rated Pg-13. That probably led to a lot of awkward conversations between curious 7-year-olds and their uncomfortable parents.
Anyway, wanting to leave work, go home, and bang your significant other doesn’t necessarily make you a swinger, but openly talking about it to thousands of people during a weather forecast makes swingin’ more likely. I guess we’ll know for sure if Jed Castles starts emailing us pics of his wife as an offering of gratitude.
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
