BOOK DESCRIPTION


This is the first factual, detailed account of today's American Groupsex practices as reported live on tape, by the participants themselves in their own uninhibited words. Here, insiders tell the real story of the most revolutionary challenge ever to confront marriage ethics.

Married couples, divorcees, and other “singles,” including teenagers, not only reveal graphically what they do at “swinger” gatherings, but how they feel about Groupsex; how they separate sex from love; how it affects their marriages, their emotions, and the non-sexual (“straight”) phases of their lives.

The reader gets a ringside seat at the unfolding of a new subculture: housewives tell what it's like to engage in sexual activities with literally dozens of men in one weekend; adolescent children tell how they feel about their parents' swinging habits; veteran swingers list the do's and don'ts of Groupsex etiquette, their favorite swinging techniques, and their methods of prolonging sexual pleasure.

Citing the research of every scientific authority who has studied Groupsex, the authors conclude that the phenomenon is growing and certain to affect sexual mores generally. They estimate that 2½ million Americans swing. The 628 swingers whom they interviewed lived all across the country, and 93 percent were upper-middle-class whites, the very group that sets national trends.


Among the 98 swingers whom the authors selected for depth interviews that averaged 3½ hours are: a young Los Angeles attorney (an Ivy  League Law School) and his wife; a Midwestern psychiatrist who teaches at a medical school and has been swinging with his wife for ten years; and a surgeon who is a widower and seeks  a new wife among his female swinging companions.


In his foreword, Martin E. Grotjahn, M.D., clinical professor of psychoanalysis at the University of Southern California and author of numerous scientific books and articles, says: “This is an important book and a significant, original contribution to man's knowledge of sex... Some of the taped interviews will, I think, become classics.”
