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
