Not long ago, I conducted a market research project on various forms of group interaction and living arrangements. One of these „group interactions“ was the life–style currently known as swinging. The people I interviewed were different, and the settings changed; but over a number of interviews the story remained substantially the same, and it went something like this:


Sexual Relationship Emotional Involvement Emotional Intimacy Intimate Friendship Extramarital Relationship 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
