Questions & Answers

Are bi people all swingers?

Absolutely not.  Bisexuality is a deep-rooted manner of interacting with other humans and a sexual identity.  Swinging is a kind of sexual activity and a lifestyle choice.  Indeed, swingers usually refer to swinging as “The Lifestyle.”  Some bi people are swingers, but most are not.


I'm bisexual, and I am a monogamous married woman with a straight husband. Both of us are private people who don't want to share each other with other people. I'm very shy, and wouldn't even know if swingers lived next door. Being bisexual is about the feelings that we have, not the actions that we make.


While I might fantasize about different things, in real life I would be emotionally incapable of successfully "swinging." I think it would be easier to get rid of my sexual attractions to men or women - which of course wouldn't work either.
