Welcome to the Influencer Spotlight with Lifeinstyle. Today, we proudly present a couple that does not need an introduction, Erika and Drew Swingz aka @ErikaSwingz and formerly STLSwingerCPL on Twitter. We've known these sexy souls from the STL lifestyle for years, and been wanting to interview them for ages!
Lifeinstyle: We want to catch up with you two and explore all the sexy endeavors you've been creating lately. As our good friends, we applaud your cool ideas and creative approach in Lifeinstyle and LiberatedKind. Our paths have intertwined so closely, it feels like we've spent a lifetime together. When we first met, around a decade ago, wasn't it through C4P? Please, refresh our memories! And my, oh my, your Twitter empire has exploded, captivating followers left and right. ErikaSwingz is now a St. Louis Twitter sensation, with your presence reaching the corners of OnlyFans!
Now, let's get to know a little bit more about Erika and Drew Swingz @ErikaSwingz
Lifeinstyle: Welcome back, you delightful duo! We've had numerous intimate conversations, but today, we want the world to know more about you. How did you both first meet, and what sparked the fire between you?
In 2011, our journey began when Erika moved into the campus apartments. Back at that time I was a Resident Assistant, so I had to welcome new students, create some excitement for social events, and providing support for those who were a bit hesitant or shy to join icebreakers.
On move-in night, during a surprise meet & greet at the clubhouse, I went from door to door, encouraging everyone to join in the fun.
When I reached Erika's apartment, one of her roommates let me in. I rallied everyone inside to join the gathering. However, one of Erika's roommates mentioned that Erika was already asleep and asked me to lower my voice.
Caught up in the excitement, I said, "Who could possibly be asleep at 7 PM on move-in night at a college campus?!" Determined, I knocked on Erika's bedroom door.
Erika, dressed in a comfortable nightie, answered the door, slightly surprised. I jokingly told her to "Put your clothes on and come with me." At first, Erika started to close the door, but I playfully stopped it with my foot, assuring her, "It's not optional."
As fate would have it, a couple of days later, we found ourselves on our first date, embarking on a journey that would lead to an incredible partnership filled with love, laughter, and shared adventures.
Our story serves as a testament to the unexpected connections that can blossom in the most ordinary of moments, reminding us that life often brings us together when we least anticipate it.
Lifeinstyle: We have totally seen Erika go to sleep early at an event or two, this is so funny! So, tell us, how did your journey into the Lifestyle begin? We're dying to know the thrilling details.
Hey guys! Thanks for reminding me. I do love to share the story of how Drew started our adventures together. It all started when Drew's ex-girlfriend asked him if he found me attractive. At first, I have to admit, I was suspicious, specially since me and her were roommates! But as we spent more time together, the topic kept coming up. Drew's curiosity eventually got the best of him, and he couldn't resist asking his ex why she was so fixated on her roommate.
To our surprise, she revealed her desire for Drew to have a threesome involving both of us, with the condition of reciprocating the experience with another man. It was definitely an uncharted territory for us, and Drew had his reservations. So we decided to dive in and explore this wild new world together. It was amazing!
As our relationship progressed, we started sharing our deepest fantasies and desires. Initially, our experiences were more on the conventional side. But one night, during a conversation about my self-confidence, I opened up about my insecurities and how I didn't feel attractive. Drew, being the amazing partner he has always been, wanted to show me how desirable I truly was. He came up with the idea of joining a webcam website, to show me how how I would receive tons of compliments, and you know what? He was right! The attention I received boosted my confidence like never before.
With my growing confidence, we started exploring even more naughty and sexy adventures. We found ourselves getting turned on by being watched by others. The idea of involving additional individuals in our sex life slowly became a regular topic of discussion. After weeks of exploration, we decided to meet a swinger couple we connected with through the casual encounters section on believe it or not, Craigslist!
It was after a work Christmas party that we had our first experience swapping partners with another couple. And guess what? We formed an incredible bond with them, and they're now close friends of ours.
Our journey into the world of exploration and open-mindedness has not only brought us closer together but has also opened up new dimensions of pleasure and intimacy. It's a testament to the power of open communication, trust, and our shared desire for adventure. Together, Drew and I continue to embrace the excitement that life has to offer, making every moment count in our own unique way.
Lifeinstyle: A lot of people in the Lifestyle has issues with self esteem we have noticed. That's not the most conventional way to overcome it, but here we are talking about swapping partners and the lifestyle. We are glad that worked! By the way, our first lifestyle encounter was also with a couple from the casual encounters from the dirty times of Craigslist! The good ole' times!
So, the question we all crave an answer to – whose idea was it to dive into the Lifestyle?
Drew was definitely the first to bring it up. There’s no way that flirty dude could ever be with only just one woman!
Lifeinstyle: Honesty is key. Are there any aspects of the Lifestyle that don't quite tickle your fancy?
In the swing lifestyle, there are aspects that we find less enjoyable and can be frustrating. One of these is the difficulty in finding genuine partners online. People often talk a big game but end up flaking out at the last minute or, even worse, engage without discussing it with their other partner beforehand. It can make the whole experience feel transactional, which takes away from the authenticity we are looking for.
Another issue we always encounter is the hesitancy when it comes to setting a concrete time, date, and place to meet. We all know why we're here, so after confirming mutual interest in the same type of play, we prefer to move forward and establish a playdate. However, many couples respond with vague statements like needing to check their schedule, having busy weeks ahead, or looking to find time. While these may be genuine circumstances, we believe that people prioritize what they truly want to do. If they're making time to chat, they can surely make time to meet up. It becomes a red flag when someone gives themselves an easy way out by using words like "typically" or attaching conditions to their availability. For example, saying "We're typically available on Wednesdays" leaves room for backing out. Similarly, phrases like "We're good for Saturday as long as my car holds up" raise doubts about their commitment. More often than not, the car won't hold up, and it becomes clear it was just an excuse. It's frustrating when people show enthusiasm when they're aroused but lose their nerve when it's time to follow through.
Thankfully, we have found solace in Lifeinstyle parties. These events provide a reliable and exciting environment where like-minded individuals can come together without the flakiness and uncertainty often encountered online. It's a breath of fresh air to engage with people who are committed and ready to explore. Lifeinstyle STL has become our go-to for genuine connections and memorable experiences.
Lifeinstyle: Thanks for that bud! We really appreciate you guys and we love having you at our parties.
Our jaws drop in awe as we witness the staggering growth of your Twitter account. How did this project, alongside your OnlyFans, come to life? Share the story with us please!
Hey everyone, let's take a trip down memory lane to our college days. Picture us, Erika and Drew, juggling minimum wage jobs and the demands of full-time studies. Life was a whirlwind, to say the least. But little did we know, our journey into the world of online entertainment was just about to begin.
It all started innocently enough, with some playful webcam sessions for our own amusement. We had no idea what lay ahead. But fate had other plans in store for us. The algorithm took notice of our antics and whisked us away to an unmoderated site called Chaturbate. Suddenly, we found ourselves with an audience of thousands, applauding us for our free shows. It was so exciting!
That's when my curiosity got the best of me. I delved deeper into this video chat world and discovered that people could actually tip us for the shows. The idea of making some extra cash intrigued me. So I brought it up with Erika. And at first, she responded, "ABSOLUTELY NOT." she wasn't ready to jump into anything she wasn't comfortable with, and of course I respected her boundaries.
But here's where the story takes an unexpected turn. After a couple of weeks, Erika surprised me by reopening the Chaturbate conversation. Curiosity got the best of her. She couldn't help to wonder how much money we could earn together. And let me tell you, once I saw Erika's spark in her eyes, I knew she was all in!
I became a research maniac, immersing himself in the world of online content creation. I meticulously planned schedules, strategized our approach, and dove myself headfirst into building our online presence. It wasn't always easy, but with determination and a sprinkle of Covid-induced boredom, we started seeing incredible results.
Fast forward to today, and I couldn't be more proud of our achievements. We have gained over 140,000 followers on Twitter and reached the top 0.4% of earners on OnlyFans worldwide. Our OnlyFans account has become a content powerhouse, with a steady flow of five or more photos posted daily, thrilling videos featuring an array of co-stars released four times a week, and a twice-weekly vlog we lovingly call "Everything Erika." And let's not forget the countless clips and promos we create for different social media platforms. Oh, and did I mention? We make it a point to respond to EVERY DM and message across all platforms, every single day. It's our way of staying connected and showing appreciation to our incredible fans.
Our journey has been a rollercoaster of laughter, excitement, and a never-ending thirst for pushing boundaries. We've learned that engaging with our followers and collaborating with fellow creators brings out the magic in what we do. It's a labor of love, one that we approach with a professional mindset while having a blast every step of the way.
So, there you have it, our story from college days to the world of online stardom. It just goes to show that sometimes the most unexpected paths can lead to extraordinary adventures. Keep chasing your passions, because you never know where they might take you!
Lifeinstyle: With your huge Twitter presence, have there been any moments where your sultry social media endeavors collided with your personal life? Any amusing or arousing stories you'd like to share?
Having a big online presence isn't always a walk in the park. We've had our fair share of ups and downs, encounters with both supportive and judgmental individuals who stumbled upon our naughty side. Life's never dull, right? So, let's share a couple of stories with you—one positive and one not-so-positive.
First, let's dive into the not-so-great one. Picture this: One of my coworkers stumbled upon my spicy Twitter account, witnessing all the sexual shenanigans we put out there for free. As you can imagine, things got a bit awkward when one of my friends overheard some other colleagues whispering about it behind closed doors. Talk about a workplace gossip bomb! Understandably, I started to worry about potentially losing her job. Now, let me tell you, while Drew's always cheering me on to quit and embrace the stay-at-home mom life, I am passionate about my career and wants to keep working in my field. So, I took matters into my own hands and bravely approached my boss. To my surprise, my boss shrugged it off, making it clear that as long as work-related stuff didn't spill into my online presence, they didn't care what I did in my personal time. Sounds like a decent outcome, right? Well, not quite. My snooty coworkers continued to make comments and gave me the side-eye when I entered the room. It was clear they'd been talking behind my back. But here's the funny part—when I engaged in one-on-one conversations with them, away from the group, they actually seemed genuinely curious about the lifestyle and my content creation career. It's like they were living a double life of their own! But hey, group think can be a nasty thing, making people act differently in public than they do in private. If any of them had a shred of true confidence, they wouldn't be gossiping about it and would probably give it a shot themselves.
Now, let's turn the tables and share a positive story! Hold onto your hats, folks, because this one's a goodie. There have been times when we've truly felt like local celebrities, thanks to some memorable encounters while out and about. It's a surreal feeling, let me tell you. Picture us running errands, minding our own business, when suddenly, someone recognizes us. It's happened more than once, believe it or not! Usually, people are too shy to approach us directly, so they'll send us a message on Twitter or some other platform after spotting us. Me, in particular, have had some fantastic moments of recognition in various places—St. Louis, Las Vegas, and even Colorado. And get this, it's not just in the adult industry settings. One of the funniest instances was when I was casually shopping for a new toilet at Home Depot. Yeah, you heard that right—Home Depot! Out of the blue, someone walked up to me, showing me a picture of my very own booty on their phone and asked, "Hey, is this you?" Talk about a surprise! I of course giggled and confirmed that it was me. We ended up having a lighthearted chat right there in the plumbing aisle. The guy seemed completely star-struck, and let me tell you, that made me feel pretty darn good!
Life in the online world sure is a wild ride. We've experienced the judgment and curiosity from coworkers, as well as those moments of feeling like minor celebrities during unexpected encounters. But hey, we wouldn't trade it for anything. It's all part of the adventure, and we're here for it!
Lifeinstyle: The allure of Lifeinstyle parties can be irresistible. How did you first hear about our hedonistic gatherings?
We were first introduced to the irresistible allure of Lifestyle parties through a personal invitation. You see, we had already been attending various one-off lifestyle parties for a couple of years when we received a message from none other than Lou himself. He reached out to us, extending an invitation to a Halloween party held at a trendy downtown location. Lou enticed us with the promise of an adult hypnotist, tantalizing drinks, and a crowd of incredibly sexy individuals. Initially, we hadn't planned on attending, and Lou made it clear that entry would be denied after 9 pm.
But fate had other plans for us that night. It was around 9:15 pm when we suddenly felt the irresistible pull to join the festivities. We were a bit oblivious to the time and the cutoff, but we decided to text Lou anyway, expressing our desire to attend. To our relief, Lou promptly responded, graciously allowing us in despite our tardiness. With a mix of excitement and curiosity, we embarked on our journey to the party, unsure of what to expect.
Little did we know that this Halloween party would turn out to be a game-changer for us. Erika found herself stepping into the realm of hypnosis, experiencing an unforgettable encounter on stage as she playfully locked lips with a couple of girls. It was an electrifying moment that set the tone for the rest of the evening. However, the real magic happened when we crossed paths with a particular couple who would become our regular playmates, igniting a connection that transcended that memorable night.
From that point forward, LifeInstyle became our go-to choice for lifestyle events. We were captivated by the unique blend of excitement, openness, and genuine connections that these gatherings offered. The parties provided a safe and inclusive space where like-minded individuals could explore their desires and build lasting connections.
Lifeinstyle: In your opinion, what are some misconceptions or stereotypes surrounding the swinger lifestyle that urgently need to be addressed or passionately debunked?
It's important to debunk some common misconceptions about the swing lifestyle, as they often stem from misunderstandings and lack of personal experience. One misconception is that in the lifestyle, everyone simply sleeps with anyone without any standards or boundaries. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Engaging in the swing lifestyle requires a strong foundation of trust, respect, and communication within a committed relationship.
From our own experience, we've come to realize that being in the swing lifestyle necessitates having an ironclad relationship. It's not something that can be taken lightly or used as a quick fix for any existing issues. In fact, swinging can only thrive when a couple has already established a solid bond and a deep level of trust. It requires open and honest communication, clear boundaries, and a shared understanding of each other's needs and desires.
Contrary to another misconception, adding partners to a relationship through swinging is not a solution to fix any underlying problems. The swing lifestyle is not a band-aid for a troubled relationship. Instead, it should be viewed as an enhancement—an exciting and consensual exploration of shared desires that can bring a couple closer together.
It's also important to address the misconception that engaging in the swing lifestyle is a sign of dissatisfaction with one's current sex life. This couldn't be further from the truth. Swinging is not a reflection of sexual dissatisfaction within a relationship. Instead, it offers a unique opportunity to explore new sexual experiences and fantasies together, while still maintaining a strong emotional connection.
From our personal journey, we have found that the swing lifestyle can indeed be a great addition to a relationship when approached with care, respect, and a solid foundation. It has allowed us to explore our desires, strengthen our communication skills, and create unforgettable experiences together. However, it's crucial to remember that the swing lifestyle is not for everyone, and each couple should evaluate their own boundaries and comfort levels before deciding to embark on this journey.
In essence, the swing lifestyle is far more nuanced and complex than the misconceptions would have you believe. It requires a strong and secure relationship, open communication, and mutual respect to thrive. When approached with the right mindset and within a solid partnership, the swing lifestyle can provide exciting opportunities for personal growth, exploration, and connection.
