Why most Americans won’t choose this “Lifestyle!”

This past weekend, I caught some interesting topic that I felt needed discussing. The topic of “swinging” appeared on Lisa Ling’s “Our America,” which featured individuals that were interested in swinging. What was interesting is this stuff is far from mainstream America, but in some odd way the individuals involved possessed qualities in relationships that we strive for in traditional relationships.



Some of the important topics discussed were about open communication, (especially sexually), creating boundaries and willingness to come home to each other no matter what. Swinging isn’t for the faint of heart. You have to have nerves of steel and tremendous self-confidence to see your partner playing with a perfect stranger for an evening.

My question to Strivers is why can’t couples have the same open communication as couples in the “Lifestyle?”
