If you do the search "pampas grass swingers" you will see information stating that having pampas grass at the front of your house means swingers live there . it says it is a universal sign for swingers . how true is this ?. my next door neighbours have pampas grass outside and do seem to have a lot of weekend guests .

We have two huge bunches in the back garden, god knows what that says about us having a bunch near our back passage and one near the compost heap.

I really hope it's true. If not the flats next to the new home office buildings are far less interesting than they look.

It does seem highly unlikely. It was one of those things (pampas grass) that was fashionable years ago. I suspect that if most people with pampas grass in their gardens started swinging, their swinging bits would drop off or slap them on the back of the neck..

I'd never even heard of the stuff until I read about this rumour elsewhere. But it'd be a great revenge trick. Plant some in an awful neighbour's garden in the middle of the night and everybody will be gossiping about them (maybe....)

Note to self: read the quote before reading the post itself - good job I wasn't actually drinking this tea at that moment

who starts these ludicrous rumours anyway?

Our neighbour had some in 1975 - she was in her 80's then

Isn't shagpile a bigger indicator of 'recreational' activities?
