What is Swinging?
Consenting Adults Enjoying Extramarital Fun With Their Partners Consent
Swinging, also known as sharing, partner exchange or wife swapping, or sometimes "The Lifestyle", is simply consenting adults (18+) enjoying the experience of having sexual relationships with people other than their normal life partner or with multiple partners.
It can be difficult for singles to break into the swinging scene, as "purists" regard swinging as something done by couples with other couples. However there are always couples searching for single women and single men.
Swinging is also a great way for couples to reduce stress within their relationship. Knowing that they can have sex outside the marriage removes the problems caused by partners cheating.
Research studies by anthropologists in several countries have found that couples who have an open relationship are:
- more likely to have a very stable relationship.
- better able to communicate with each other.
- having a "very good" sex life at home.
- happier than the general population.
- less likely to contract a STI (sexually transmitted infections) than the general population.
- less likely to suffer from stress than the general population.
Swinging is one of the oldest forms of group entertainment, having been practiced by humans from the beginning of time, even in times of strict religious persecution, swingers managed to have fun.
Since the arrival of the internet swinging has become a more widely practiced lifestyle due to the ease of identifying and contacting other Swingers who want to live out the same fantasies. In the UK, a survey in 2005 found that 25% of the adult population were already involved in swinging, or wanted to be.
Swinging is openly practiced in most civilized countries, except where political or religious circumstances make it too dangerous. Even in these countries many people find a way to make contact and enjoy their lives.
Over the last couple of years we have seen a big rise in users from China, and since the political upheaval in the middle east we have had many new members from various Arab states despite the continued threat to their lives from religious bigots.Join Us Now Back to Questions Page
