Swingers and personal dating

Swinging, sometimes called wife swapping or partner swapping, is a non-monogamous behavior in which both singles and partners in a committed relationship engage in sexual activities with others as a recreational or social activity. People may choose a swinging lifestyle for a variety of reasons.

They don't swing to go out and find a new wife;" a woman asserted, "It makes women more confident – that they are the ones in charge." Stossel interviewed 12 marriage counselors.In a 1992 study, an overall 7% of swingers had quit swinging because of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.It was also stated that 62% of swingers changed their sex practices, by becoming more selective with partners or by practicing safe sex.Some argue that strict monogamy is the ideal form for marital relationships and that sexual relations should only take place between marriage partners or, perhaps, between partners in a committed monogamous relationship.Swingers are exposed to the same types of risks as people who engage in casual sex, with the main concerns being the risk of pregnancy and of contracting a sexually transmitted infection (STI).The swinger community sometimes refers to itself as "the lifestyle", or as "the alternative lifestyle".

Approximately 50% of those who rated their relationship "very happy" before becoming swingers maintained their relationship had become happier.

90% of those with less happy relationships said swinging improved them.

Some swingers engage in unprotected sex, a practice known as barebacking, while others follow safe sex practices and will not engage with others who do not also practice safe sex.

Swingers may reduce the risk of STI by exchanging STI test results and serosorting.

According to 2010 estimates by the Kinsey Institute "swinging is relatively uncommon in the United States".
