This practical arrangement supplants the socially arbitrated and pre-determined convention of monogamy

The concept of monogamous relationships has been inexorably tied puro the institution of marriage between couples (as well as that of relationships in the ‘commitment’ phase). It is noteworthy however that monogamy is required for neither of the above, rather, it is society that assumes that the former cannot exist without the latter. Swinging and swingers are not hell bent on destroying either marriage or relationships between couples sopra their more general scope. Rather, the distinguishing that the imposition of monogamy onto their relationship is purely societal allows swinger couples to maintain relationships that mature puro a point where the aforementioned sexual power dynamic is fluid and maesta-negotiated at per subconscious plane.

A consistent point that emerged from research by Thomas & Terry Gould, is that durante nearly each and every interview held, it was the male part mediante couples that first suggested swinging puro the woman. However, it was then the woman that made the effort puro maintain this lifestyle practice. Swinging offers women more than sexual freedom. It offers them the opportunity for self-discovery. This is demonstrated by the very high levels of bi-sexuality found con swinging women, but that fact that bi-sexuality con men in all but abhorred durante the swinging community. This may be tied onesto the fact that society deems it far more acceptable for woman puro engage con relations with another woman for her and her partner’s pleasure, than for the same couple onesto swap partners. Whatever the reason behind this inclinazione, the swinging lifestyle is one of the possibilities for modern women puro explore all the facets of their sexuality per safe and comfortable environment.
