So you think you know a thing or two about swingers, huh? Well maybe you do. Or maybe you don’t. Maybe you are a swinger and you’re just making sure we’re not spreading any lies. Either way, I digress, and well.. if you don’t know, now you know.

Swingers Will Have Sex With Anyone

Not only is this not true, it is often the exact opposite! Swingers tend to be very picky about who they play with. Think about it — they have a lot of options — why would they waste time with someone who doesn’t really turn them on?

They Don’t Love Their Partners

While swingers may enjoy having sex with others, that doesn’t affect the love that they share with their partners. The majority of swinger couples believe in some form of emotional monogamy, which is what separates them from the polyamorous community. In fact you could argue that the love swinger couples share is more mature and evolved. Plus, in order to be a successful swinger couple communication is key! They have rules that they always follow as a couple, and when playtime is over, their bond is only stronger.

Sex is All They Think About

One of the problems with referring to it as “the lifestyle”, is that it implies that swinging makes up a swinger’s entire life, and in most cases, it doesn’t. They have families, careers and other hobbies and interests. When they swing, it’s something they do recreationally. For example, you might enjoy reading, but it’s not all that you think about. Books don’t make up who you are. It’s the same with swinging. At the end of the day, for swingers, it’s all really just an exciting hobby!

There is a “Type”

If there’s one thing you learn quickly in the lifestyle, it’s that there is no specific “type” of person that becomes a swinger. There are swingers all around the world, and they come in every color, shape, size and income bracket. People you know might be swingers. Hey, you might even be a swinger!

Women Don’t Actually Enjoy Swinging

There seems to be a ridiculous (but popular) belief that women don’t actually enjoy swinging, but that most just do it for the benefit of their husbands or boyfriends. False. False. False. The swinger lifestyle is controlled by women in many ways, and most female swingers will claim they find it extremely sexually empowering. In fact there are even cuckold and gangbang couples, where you’ll find that it’s the women — not the men — having all the fun!

Sexual Diseases Are Common

This is just not true. Swingers are actually known to be extremely diligent about using protection. It is also common for swingers to get tested regularly, and full disclosure is always expected before playing.

Singles Aren’t Swingers

It is often argued that singles just aren’t swingers. This is a complicated argument. Our stance is simple — while it’s true that couples rule the lifestyle hierarchy — singles (both men and women) are still necessary. So they deserve the swinger title, as long as they play by the rules! Besides, think about all the swinger fantasies that require an extra man or woman, and perhaps more than one of each!
