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.
Clubs are typically divided into "on-premise" clubs, where sexual activity may happen then and there at the club, and "off-premise" clubs where sexual activity is not allowed at the club, but may be arranged at a near-by location.
There is a worldwide organization called SDC, (Swingers Date Club) that organises membership exchanges, parties, conventions and group holidays.
However swingers from all over the continent congregate in July and August in the nudist town of Cap d'Agde in the South of France where there are around 8 swinger clubs.
