So you’ve done it. You have tossed your keys in the bowl. Now to recall fast, the rules of the neighbourhood swinger’s party. Starting with the most important –   know how to get the hell out of there.

One can only imagine the pressure of the right take-a-plate at such a do! An artfully arranged platter of Devils on Horseback feels right…. right? Or be a total tease and substitute the prunes for a lovely salty aphrodisiac like freshly shucked oysters. Rename them Angels on Horseback so you look like you totally belong. Whatever floats your boat. Good luck swingers!


Devils on Horseback 

(via Martha Stewart)


  • 8 slices bacon, cut into thirds
  • 24 prunes, pitted (or shucked oysters ;))


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Wrap bacon pieces around prunes and secure with toothpicks.

Bake on sheet until bacon is browned, about 14 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Serve warm.
