It is instructional to look at who the swingers are. A recent study of swingers by Curtis R Bergstrand, Ph.D. and Jennifer Blevins Sinski, published with the title Swinging in America, found the typical swinger to be 39 years old with two years of college education, married 1.5 times in a current marriage lasting 10.5 years, and with five years involvement in the swinging lifestyle. In their sample, swingers identify themselves in a variety of careers including 10 physicians, 15 attorneys, 65 upper level managers or owners of businesses, 27 engineers, 22 teachers, 40 health professionals including nurses, and people representing a variety of other occupations including skilled blue-collar workers, office personnel, police officers, computer technicians, and artists.
The ages in this particular study of males averaged 40.5 years with 14.2 years of education, married 1.5 times with the current marriage being 11.1 years, years in swinging is 5.3, while of the females of the study the average age is 35.6, years of education 13.9, number of times married 1.3, length of marriage 9.1 years, and swinging 4.2 years.
The ethnicities of swingers in the sample are: White 90.4%, Black 4.1%, Hispanic 3%, other 1.5% and unknown 1%. When asked about their religious affiliation the question being “are you currently a member of a church, synagogue, or mosque,” 72.1% said yes and 27.9% said no religious affiliation. Those who were members of Protestant churches were 38.8%, those who are 20.4%, those Jewish were 2.1% and other religious affiliations 38.5%.
The swingers in the study order their values as (1) self-respect (2) family security (3) inner harmony (4) happiness (5) mature love (6) true friendship (7) pleasure (8) freedom (9) sense of accomplishment (10) exciting life (11) comfortable life (12) wisdom (13) world at peace (14) social recognition (15) equality (16) world of beauty (17) national security and (18) salvation. These results suggest swingers put a relatively low priority to religion in a traditional sense and that they do not particularly care about material things or social status. What appears to be emphasized most in their value system is inner harmony and happiness as it is accomplished through their immediate circle of family and friendships.
In summary, the authors of this study found the swingers in their sample to have many characteristics similar to those found in previous studies: they are predominantly white, middle-class, middle-aged and likely to be a member of a religious organization. They are however, more middle-of-the-road politically than other studies have found, seem to be less racist, less sexist, and less heterosexist than the general population. These differences, they found, possibly reflect changes that have occurred in the swinger population over time since their research is more recent than many of the swinger studies with which they compared their results.
In this study a main theme expressed by swingers appear to be the need for variety in their sexual lives. Other researchers report data suggesting the need for variety drives initial entry into swinging. The author’s sample of 1100 swingers on exactly the same question resulted in a response at a slightly higher rate than older studies. About one half the swinger sample responded to the statement “How important is variety in my sex life a reason for entering swinging” with a response of “very important.” It was found that an equal percentage of female swingers and male swingers site variety as the reason for beginning swinging.
Woman swingers cited creating close friendships as the second highest reason for entry into swinging. Some researchers in the past downplayed the socializing aspect of swinging, highlighting the supposed desire swinging couples have for depersonalized sex. In the Bergstrand/Sinski 2000 study it was found that swingers value their friendship quite highly and reported that making new friendships was very important to them. Men and women respond quite similarly to this question with “meeting new friends and expanding my social life” as a reason for swinging with only 19.1 stating “not in all important.” Swinging in America, published by Praeger, An imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC
