Friends of S.U.E

S.U.E. stands for Swingers United Everywhere and is an increasingly popular technique swingers use to identify potential swing partners. They can simply ask those whose inclinations they aren’t sure of: “Do you know Sue?” without raising any suspicion. The true underlying meaning of this question is known by most swingers so is a great way they can meet others like them.


The pictorial symbol for a swinger is that of two pairs of female and male signs intertwined, some people opt for a permanent tattoo of the image to show other swingers that they’re one of them, whilst others use temporary press on ones which can be purchased on many swinging websites.


The rainbow is a well known symbol of both gay and lesbian people that unifies them and also lets one another know that they’re of that inclination should they be wearing it.


The labrys is the symbol resembling a double sided axe and has been associated with powerful and divine females for many centuries. Perhaps it is for this reason that it began it’s association with lesbians a few decades back and is now one of their prominent symbolic representations of girl to girl love.
