I've tried this but it bores me. Again, as in FWB relationships, people have a hard time (at least the ones I've encountered), with boundaries and rules and communication. I think it's natural for people to be in a committed relationship and want to be sexual with other people. I don't think as a species we are meant to be monogamous. I think monogamy is a choice and if both parties agree to that, like the swinging thing, there's nothing wrong with that. I'm not judging. Just saying that as a species I don't think it's natural to be monogamous. With that being said if you want to participate in this lifestyle you have to have complete honesty and openess with your partner and it will not save an already bad relationship. Just like having a child does not fix a broken relationship neither will this fix one either. A swinging relationship requires certain components. If you aren't kosher with that best not to stick your toe in the swingers pool. Or anything else for that matter.

On the other hand, there is a major pitfall that one must be careful to avoid. There was a girl... a museum curator, who had charge of a very interesting collection. She wasn't extraordinarily pretty but prettier than my wife. She took a liking to me and I to her because she was a pleasant and interesting person. We would have sex and a long convo every week. My wife didn't like it. My wife didn't mind my having sex with the museum girl or anyone else. It was that the museum girl and I hit it off so well personally that made her mad. That can happen easily among swingers because they are such nice and decent people.

Is another one is the pitfalls that you can wind up divorced?
