Of course neither of us told anyone, and we're now great friends as well as neighbors." Adult Swingers, or people in the Life Style don't often talk about their Life Style to others.
All seem to be very aware of the unwritten rules of privacy.
Only a few years ago, before the Internet era, swingers were essentially a secret society, meeting each other through dating magazines purchased at adult bookstores.
Because of that, it was difficult to even guess at how many swingers there were.
In the past it was quite difficult and time consuming to meet like-minded people using the magazines gleaned from the adult bookstores and that made it easy to give up.
With the Internet, you're only a few clicks away from finding thousands of swingers who are just what you're looking for.
Many swingers, especially females, are active in the Life Style due to bisexual curiosity.
I was shocked and concerned that the whole neighborhood would find out.
After I got over the initial shock, I realized that my neighbor was thinking the same thing.
Just as it has become more socially acceptable to be gay or lesbian, sexual attitudes toward bisexuals and partner swapping are also changing.
The taboo that society places on everything it categorizes as "out of the norm" has kept both homosexuals and swingers in the closet. Perhaps in a few years, it will be the "in thing" to be a swinger.
