Here is a marvelous opportunity to see the truth of swinging through the eyes and experience of a woman. -- Robert McGinley, PhD., President, The Lifestyles Organization
This is the first book that I can endorse as being a practical guide, especially for new and hesitant couples. -- Editor, Liberated Christians Newsletter, Phoenix, AZ
Wow! ...this is the first book that I can endorse as being a practical guide, especially for new and hesitant couples. Some prior guides I've reviewed have been more personal fantasy experiences, which for some people are great, but this is the first book I've reviewed that is personal, concise, and very practical. -- Editor, Liberated Christians Newsletter, Phoenix, AZ, September, 1997

The Swinger Manual is and a much more updated and thorough book on the topic, paying homage to Patti's great advice but updating things for the swinger (and want to be swinger) of the new millennium.
One, the feelings of being forced into the lifestyle by husbands/partners and being told to wear revealing clothing at parties/resorts that don't make them feel comfortable. Two, the lack of information and resources for women interested in swinging either alone or with the husband/partner. She is dead on when she states that many more women would be interested in swinging if given proper education from society and positive support from their husbands/partners. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR WOMEN INTERESTED IN SWINGING AND FOR MEN WHO ARE CONSIDERING OPENING UP THEIR MARRIAGE TO EITHER SWINGING, POLYAMORY OR SWAPPING.
I wanted to write and tell you that I was impressed with your book. It think it was very well written and to the point. We also found it to be extremely helpful in addressing some issues that we were working thru. Let me say at this point that I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida, and a National Certified Counselor. We have been in the lifestyle for only three years and I consider us still to be kind of "newbies." I found your book to be very useful in opening up helpful dialogues and to give various "permissions" to examine issues in a "defense-free" manner. For that gift I thank you. I would also like to say that I liked your humility. While it seemed like someone as famous as you could really have a swelled head, you did not. I admired that. Thank you again,
