(Bergstrand & Williams, Today's Alternative Marriage Styles: The Case of Swingers, Electronic Journal of Human Sexuality, Vol.3, 10 October 2000 ).However it should be noted that this study may be biased in terms of its sample (i.e."suggestions on teaching him to take cock" My wife started me out with butt plugs, starting small and working my way up. Those with a suction cup worked best for training because I could place them on the floor or wall and learn how to ride them from different angles.Once I was able to take a large dildo we moved onto a strap-on, which we still do from time-to-time. To many couples, the lifestyle and the clubs can be at least as much a social venue as a sexual one.In the USA, many off-premise clubs follow a bar or nightclub format, sometimes renting an entire existing bar for scheduled events.The 'prime directive' in swinging is "No means no".
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.In the words of one in the lifestyle:"if the marriage is in need of repair, I wouldn't suggest this is the time to explore swinging."—Few major public health concerns are associated with swingers according to lifestyle advocates.Condom use between new partners is strictly enforced by many swingers clubs.potentially those swinging couples who had stronger relationships would be motivated to complete the questionnaire, or alternatively the stress that swinging may place on a marriage means that only those with higher than average levels of commitment to their partners are able to remain married whilst swinging; additionally, couples that have jealousy or strife issues caused by swinging will not usually stay in the swinging lifestyle).Due to the risks of jealousy, swingers most often prefer the lifestyle be something to be used as an enhancement to an already-stable relationship.This often relegates these activities to suburbia, where bars in large industrial parks which attract a mainstream clientele during weekdays would otherwise sit empty or closed on weekends when offices shut down. There are three standard formats: the bar/nightclub, usually smaller, in city centres and focused around a dance floor; the spa format which has pools, jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms and where people strip on entry; and the country club format, which is out-of-town, usually serves a free buffet and may include elements of the first two as well as offering large play spaces.History According to Terry Gould's The Lifestyle: A Look at the Erotic Rites of Swingers (ISBN 1552094820), swinging began among U. Air Force pilots and their wives during World War II.
