So, we are continuing with our look at the History of Swinging. In the last article we considered the evolution of the term “Swinging” into the new nomenclature of “Consensual Non-Monogamy,” and genesis of Polyamory, as derivative of Swinging perse, as well as the social profile of Swinging and Swingers.
