    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...

    I had a tree swing since July 2012

    and it's on candy-stripe ropes. Today I was swinging kind of high with my earphones on. Next thing I knew I was on the ground. I knew something had happened when I saw the frayed end of the rope fly in front of my face. I didn't hear the rope snap since my music was loud so...

    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...

    Hi I go on my swing most of the time in the spring and summer. Your reason for being on a swing may be different to mine so I'm not planning on laying my take on you as after all you may just find a a pleasant way to relax in an afternoon. For me this, while true -it is very...

    They're Still Fun

    For something so simple, swinging just brings so much joy. I can remember going to the playground with my dad when I was really little, and having him push me on the swing as I went higher and higher was always just the most thrilling thing ever. Later, in high school, there was...

    I got a call on Friday summoning me to the local park to take part in a game called ' Brucers'. Or, that's what we call it anyway. All you need is a double swing set in an empty park. Basically you swing on the swing, someone throws the ball at you, you kick it, you launch...

    No Limits

    Whenever I swing the ground, chains and all my problems melt away; the only things left are the sky, wind and me.  I feel the wind surround me and the cool night sky' stars and moon shine on me.  I usually only swing at night, when it's cool.  I've been doing it...

    Last Saturday I had the chance to play footsie on the swings at my local park. It's a great game. Basically you have one person swinging on the swing, a thrower and everyone else as fielders. The thrower throws the ball at the person on the swing who kicks it as hard as they can...

    I Don't Think I'll Ever Outgrow Swinging On The Swings

    There is something about walking into a empty park and seeing a swing set that makes me feel like a kid again. Sitting down and just gently rocking back and forth takes me back to being in elementary school. Waiting my turn impatiently to jump on and swing as high as I could...

    No Harm

    I'm still a kid at heart, I love the swing we have in the back garden, even though I'm probably too big for it now anyway. I'm stubborn and still go on it anyway, there's no harm in it :)

    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.

    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...

    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...
