    In the 1971 spaghetti western "Bad Man's River" in the following dialogue:

    Alicia: You two should be friends. After all, you have a lot in common. Me.

    King: I offered to share you.

    Montero: Were you suggesting a, ah, switch-man's picnic?

    Sorry, that doesn't help, perhaps it's uniquely American.

    I am not sure exactly since I am not familiar with the movie but the phrase seems to be sexual in nature. Looks like two men want to "share" Alice.
    A "switch man" often refers to a bisexual man. A "switch man's picnic" seems to mean an encounter between all three people, two men and one woman.
