Review

"Congratulations and thanks for writing probably the most gentle and enlightening book on a highly misunderstood subject." -- Personal letter from C & D, Birmingham, AL

"I read it all in one great big gulp ... the best job yet on the whole phenomenon of social sex." -- Bob Rimmer, Quincy, MA Author of "The Harrad Experiment"

"Thank you both for a most enjoyable reading experience. Together Sex says it all as far as swinging is concerned." -- Personal letter from FP, Vancouver, BC, Canada

"There is an overwhelming honesty and joy about your book. Books on sexuality come and go, but yours was 'special'." -- Personal letter from TC, Wayne, NJ

"Together Sex is the only honest, down-to-earth book on swinging on the market. ... a must for all members." -- Friends Unlimited - Swing club newsletter

From the Publisher

"Together Sex" is a truly valuable resource for couples who enjoy, or are contemplating, the swinging lifestyle. This is not another "true-life" story, it doesn't extol the sexual prowess or social skills of its authors, and it doesn't try to titillate or shock. Neither are its 204 pages padded with lists of clubs and contacts -- which are readily available via the Internet. "Together Sex" simply provides a lot of useful information and advice in a lively and entertaining way.

Format: Paperback
While much of the book is devoted to mundane though interesting "how to's" regarding practicing the "swinging" lifestyle, a lot of it expresses clearly and cogently some very thought-provoking philosophies regarding the mythology surrounding sexuality and the imperative for sexual exclusivity we have perhaps too unquestioningly accepted.
Whether you choose to pursue the swinging lifestyle or not, committed couples ought to read this book and honestly discuss the insights it offers into our "default assumptions" about sexual exclusivity, why we believe we need it, what we might gain by abandoning it, and how it is the handmaiden of a host of other assumptions about partners as "property."

Together sex goes beyond the normal informational guideline (what is soft swinging? where can you find swinger clubs) and answers the more important question of all: Why swing? The author explains the "value of playful sex" and gives one an inside view of chance to understand the motivations and rewards from engaging in the swinging lifestyle.
As a long time member of the lifestyle, I am impressed with the amount of personal insight and candor from which the author writes. Most books on this subject are unrealistic or written by people that truly don't understand what it's like to be a part of the "swinging life". Ed and Dana do and this book is a must read for anyone considering the lifestyle (and should be read by a few folks already in the lifestyle).

This book was originally written in 1976 and revised in 2001. According to the introduction the book is about swinging as it relates to group sex (sex parties). Personally, I wish they'd spent more of the book on just that, and less on a lot of other things.

Too much of the book was, in my opinion, useless or outdated. Too often it seemed that the authors tried to sound over-educated and parts of the book came off too scientific and, in turn, too negative.

While the book was revised in 2001, I'm not sure how much revision was actually done. The authors still focus their discussion on ad writing to doing so for contact magazines and pretty much state that they find little to no use with the online swinger sites (even though at that point they've already set up their own to promote the book).

I would suggest completely skipping over the first 4 chapters and starting at Chapter 5, where the book finally gets into a bit of discussion on actually partying. From Chapter 5 on each chapter has some good points and some not so good.

Chapter 7 discusses "Physical Matters" (from attraction to performance). The way the chapter started I thought they were going to say that beauty is relative and that beauty is about being who you are. But, they took a strong turn away from that to say that beauty is about being the best you that you can be, whatever it takes... even if that means plastic surgery - then you should do it. Once I got past that little "WTF?" moment, the rest of the chapter was actually pretty good, including their discussion on performance issues and how to deal with them.

We are just getting into this scene. Though we did find a few of the safe sex practices not in line with ours ( or most poeple we know) the rest of the information was very useful and informative
