60% of swingers said that swinging improved their relationship and only 1.7% said it made their relationship less happy.
Half of those who rated their relationship very happy before becoming swingers maintained it had become even happier.
Most major cities in North America and western Europe have at least one swing club in a permanent location although they often keep a low profile to avoid negative attention.
Swingers also meet through lifestyle magazines, personal ads, swinging house parties, and the Internet.

There are three standard formats: the bar/nightclub, usually smaller, in city centres and focused around a dance floor; the spa format which has pools, jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms and where people strip on entry; and the country club format, which is out-of-town, usually serves a free buffet and may include elements of the first two as well as offering large play spaces.History According to Terry Gould's The Lifestyle: A Look at the Erotic Rites of Swingers (ISBN 1552094820), swinging began among U. Air Force pilots and their wives during World War II.Scientific research into swinging has been conducted in the USA since the late 1960s.Swingers rate themselves happier (59% against 32% very happy) and their lives much more exciting (76% against 54% exciting) than does the rest of the population, by surprisingly large margins.There was no difference between the responses of men and women, although more males (70%) than females completed the survey.90% of those with less happy relationships said swinging improved them.Almost 70% of swingers claimed no problem with controlling jealousy, around a quarter admitted "I have difficulty controlling jealousy when swinging" to be somewhat true but only 6% said this was "Yes, Very Much" true.
