Getting into the Swing of Things: Ménage Millennial for Life

There’s this joke my friends and I have about me…I am NOT a swinger. The first time I met my new friends at Ménage Life – I remember saying just that – “I am much more a kinkster – than a swinger.

The spokesman was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly so spoke anonymously. An Army inspector general investigation concluded that Haigh...

Swingers: Mentally Healthier Than Monogamous Peers?

One of the traits that determines happiness and mental health is flexibility: the capacity for creativity, abstract thinking, and adapting to changing circumstances.
