Definition - What does Hard Swap mean?

The term hard swap is used frequently by those in the swing lifestyle. It refers to a situation in which two or more couples are free to enjoy nearly all types of sexual activities with other couples, including penetrative sex. Many hard swap swingers, however, still have limits on what they will and won't do in a full swap situation. For instance, some swingers may not participate in anal sex with other couples and others may only be comfortable with same room sex.

A hard swap is also referred to as a full swap.

Kinkly explains Hard Swap

Before entering the swing lifestyle, it's important for you and your partner to communicate your desires. If either are you are uncomfortable with the idea of the other engaging in penetrative sex with another person, then being hard swap swingers is not a good idea - at least at first. In fact, most new swingers are encouraged to start only with soft swap, which does not involve penetrative sex. Once you and your partner become a little more experienced, you may feel comfortable with the idea of a hard swap and choose to make that transition.
