"Contrary to popular belief, swinging "lifestyle" ordinarily does not result in jealousy or marital breakups; it may succeed in solidifying marriages by reromanticizing them and thereby making them tolerable and perhaps even enjoyable.

One reason for marital happiness among swingers may be that swinging as an activity both spouses do together -- a unique pattern compared with other types of extramarital sex. Most people who continue to participate in swinging believe that such comarital sex embellishes and enriches marriages in all areas, especially in the erotic sector. While most swingers report that it makes a good marriage better..."

"Sexual variety, sexual fulfillment, and the potential of carrying out of one's fantasies are among the advantages of swinging. Sexual excitation increases for both partners as a result of the new types of sexual experiences and there are discussions of actual sexual experiences. Women recieve a great deal of positive reinforcement; they may begin seeing themselves as more desirable. Women uniformally report that they have been able to shed sexual inhibitions that they were raised with. According to many swingers, you have more of a feeling of your own "personhood;" you think of yourself as a person and not a thing."

"Some swingers argue that swinging creates stronger bonds between couples. Married couples find that swinging increases their ability to communicate with each other. Many couples believe that if a married couple can discuss swinging together, they can discuss anything. Generally, swingers believe they experience individual growth and develop an ability to communicate better with other people."
