Swings and roundabouts - Jealousy in heterosexual swinging couples

Richard de Visser PhD

Swinging involves consensual mutual involvement in extra-dyadic sex, thereby breaching customary beliefs that marriage (and de facto marriage) should be based on monogamy. Jealousy in swinging couples is an interesting topic for research, because jealousy is a common and acceptable response to a romantic partner\'s real or imagined infidelity. Jealousy is also known to be harmful to relationships. So, how do heterosexual swinging couples manage the potentially destructive feelings of jealousy that are commonly associated with knowledge of a partner’s extra-dyadic sexual activity?
