Scientific research into swinging has been conducted in the USA since the late 1960s.
It has consistently found that swingers have better pair-bonds than monogamous couples.
Swinging activities can include having sex with a partner while being watched; watching others have sex (perhaps with the above mentioned partner); kissing, stroking, or having oral sex with a third or fourth person (called soft swinging); or having penetrative sex with someone other than one's partner (Full Swap), which is the commonly understood definition of swinging.
Typically, swinging activities occur when a married (or otherwise committed) couple engages with a similar couple or a single individual. Sex on these occasions is often referred to as play.
However swingers from all over the continent congregate in July and August in the nudist town of Cap d'Agde in the South of France where there are around 8 swinger clubs.Swingers also meet through lifestyle magazines, personal ads, swinging house parties, and the Internet.Clubs are typically divided into "on-premise" clubs, where sexual activity may happen then and there at the club, and "off-premise" clubs where sexual activity is not allowed at the club, but may be arranged at a near-by location.Half of those who rated their relationship very happy before becoming swingers maintained it had become even happier.90% of those with less happy relationships said swinging improved them.The most recent and most thorough study, based on an Internet questionnaire addressed to visitors of lifestyle-related sites, found swingers are happier in their relationships than the norm.60% of swingers said that swinging improved their relationship and only 1.7% said it made their relationship less happy.Condom use between new partners is strictly enforced by many swingers clubs.In addition, a minority of swingers rely on STD testing to select for partners less likely to have different STD's than they themselves have.Cap D'Agde has a population of 30,000 at the height of the season.To many couples, the lifestyle and the clubs can be at least as much a social venue as a sexual one.
