    Swinging...

    I like to swing in a calm rain on a dark grey day when no one else is around and the wind is barely blowing. I can just close my eyes, grab the chains on the swing, lean back, and feel  the rain on my face as I kick my legs out and swing. Its something so simple...

    Grow Up & Blow Away

    I've done it. I've become an annoying teenager. I remember watching the older kids swing on swings when I wanted one, talking loud about things I didn't understand and slipping in a few swearwords. I'm one of those kids now. I won't give up the swings to the below seven crowd...

    Inspired

    I have always enjoyed the swing, but my fear of heights and falling usually prevents any action. Reading moon's story reminded me of the set near my home, so I went. I was a falcon, this lasted all of a half hour. Then I got heat sickness, and too much adrenaline from going into...

    Let's Go to the Park

    I would love to have a date to go to a park.  I would like to sit on the swings while my date pushed me higher and higher.  I would enjoy this so much.

    Good Times

    Every time I take the kids I nanny to the park I go for the swings. I make it go sideways, I'll swing real high then jump off (it impresses the young ones) haha. Of course I have to stop swinging a lot because the little one can't really swing himself so I have to give him a few...

    And I'll Never Grow Out of It.

    I've always loved swings. They were my favorite pieces of playground equipment as a child. And that hasn't changed. My dad built me a swing this past summer, and hung it underneath my willow tree. After that, my family never could get me inside at night. There's just...

    Losing Myself

    For me swinging on the swings is a chance to lose myself out of reality. To escape the world and create my own. It feels like you're soaring though the sky with the wind flowing through your hair and in your face is calming, a relaxant of repetative actions of moving your legs...

    What's Not to Like?

    Sure!  Sitting, standing, lying on my stomach; sideways; jumping off; sex on a swing; at night; over the edge of the riverbank; it's all good. Anybody here ever go completely over the top of the swingset?  I never did, but a friend of mine has. :-)  E. Bunbury

    My Favorite Pastime

    I have to say, I still visit the local playground once and a while to revisit my childhood. Looking back, a lot of my memories involved my old rusty swing set and a small rope swing in our Oak tree. My first memory of being on the swing set was when I was about 4 years old. I...

    I Was Queen On the Swing Set.

    When I was young, I just love to go on the swings! They were fun, exciting. Do you remember the game that everyone would play on the swing set? When your swinging with someone else at the same time, your "married" to that person. Usually, if you swing at the same time...

    Not Much Of A Story To Tell.

    I'm 55 y/o and I still love to swing on a swing. I go to the park with my 11 y/o and I never miss a chance to swing on the swing set. He's starting to get a little old for taking to the park now so I guess I won't have as many chances any more. I did put new reinforced swings...

    The bloddy park keeper told me to get off one just a few days because it was meant for kids, and next they had hoardings put up that its meant for kids.   Bloody fucknut!   Now if you get on everybody stares at you as if you dont know how to read.

    The Pains Of Being An Adult On A Swingset

    I started to swing on swing sets lately for pure enjoyment's sake. Although when I do I have to wait till it's near dark, about 7pm or so, for me to do it without drawing too much attention to myself since I'm an adult male, age 20-something, and I know what that can look like to...

    With Every Rise and Fall...

    The ideal time for me to swing is when no one else is around to hound me to get off or something. I love swinging on the swing and walking: two very relaxing, wonderful things.
