Oh my gosh, have you watched Swingtown on CBS yet? If you answered no, you’ve totally been missing out. In fact, I think I’m going to make Swingtown is my new favorite show.
After moving to an upscale lakeside Chicago suburb in July of 1976, Susan and Bruce Miller must confront temptation in the form of their provocative new neighbors, Tom and Trina Decker, while not abandoning their old friends Janet and Roger Thompson. As the adult couples evaluate whether to embrace or avoid newfound personal freedoms, the curious Miller and Thompson children begin to discover and assert their own morality and sexual identities as they come of age in a world on the precipice of change. About Swingtown
Yeah, baby! They put the grrr in swinger! Besides the great music and the horrendously wonderful wardrobe, Swingtown has Grant Show, who played Jake on Melrose Place, and his fantastic porn-stash. Come to think of it, Swingtown is sort of like Melrose Place; except with a whole lot more polyester.
Swinging, sometimes referred to as the swinging lifestyle, is “non-monogamous sexual activity, treated much like any other social activity, that can be experienced as a couple.” The phenomenon (or at least its wider discussion and practice) of swinging may be seen as part of the sexual revolution of recent decades, which occurred after the upsurge in sexual activity made possible by the prevalence of safer sex practices during the same period. Swinging has been called wife swapping in the past, but this term has been criticized as androcentric and inaccurately describing the full range of sexual activities in which swingers may take part.
