History of swinging

Back in the 60s and 70s, couples went to parties and put their keys in a bowl. The person’s keys you drew at the end of the night was the person you went home with.

swinging actually started in America in the 1950s with Air Force officers in California swapping their wives. Today, this is carried out in clubs and private homes.

Times have changed since the 60s and 70s Sexual Revolution! What was once extremely taboo and only took place behind closed doors nowdays has websites, and there seems to be a shift towards younger people taking part. Once, swingers were generally in their mid to late 30s, but that’s changing. Today’s it common for people in their 20s and 30s, and even the over 60s taking part.

Psychotherapists claim that swinging can be good for releationships

When a couple swing this can add excitement to a couple’s relationship but only when they have a solid foundation of trust, being with other people in a nonexclusive sexual experience can heighten the attraction to each other.


Psychotherapist Tammy Nelson, PhD said

“Talk about what you each want and don’t want. Talk about it before you do it. Talk about it to death. And then talk about it some more.”

“Don’t rush, It’s better to go in with hesitation, crossing lines with trepidation, checking in with one another, and then moving forward again. Do this while talking about how each of you feels and what the setup is doing to your relationship. Learn to communicate far more than you ever have.”

“If you want something but your partner doesn’t, it’s important to honor your partner’s limits, This is not about compromise. Compromise means one partner gets hurt while the other partner only gets some of what they want. This is about agreeing.”
