Home » Glossary » Relationship Structure » Swinging





A sexual practice defined as having multiple sexual partners outside of an established relationship.

Swinging is different to polyamory in the sense that people who swing are meant to avoid developing romantic or emotional attachments to their sexual partners.

Couples will often engage in swinging as a couple and attend swinging events/ parties together.


Billy and Linda were swingers who led very active sex lives, attending multiple swinging parties every week.
