Swinging is normally at its best when it is played down. More experienced and mature swingers will freely admit to the perils of shouting your lifestyle preference from the rooftops. Like anything that is not widely accepted in the mainstream, swinging is treated with fear, suspicion, and even just sheer discomfort by the majority of individuals who have not truly looked into the idea. While swinging is certainly not for everyone, those who decide that it is the best personal choice for for them and their partner after a decent amount of research and self reflection normally are happier with their decision and within their life as a whole. Yet, that happiness normally only stays constant when the people involved in the lifestyle keep things on the down low.
This concept of keeping quiet about the lifestyle is not new and will probably be a around for a very long time—at least until the mainstream finally recognizes it as a separate lifestyle which is to be respected like the others.

Many also think that swinging is degrading to women, indicates a toxic relationship, and can even be the reason behind so many failed marriages and committed relationships. Swingers who have just entered the lifestyle recently will probably know all about these incorrect assumptions if they chose to do their homework before diving into the swinging world.

Jealousy is an obvious issue that you and your partner need to address before you even begin swinging. Not dealing with this potential problem before hand will certainly come back to bite you in the rear in a very big way. If you are the jealous sort (particularly about sexual infidelity), you should stay away from swinging. The lifestyle really is not for everyone, and you should not feel ashamed or upset that you become jealous about the emotional and sexual ties to your spouse or committed partner. Continue reading
