When it comes to whether or not swinging is cheating it usually will depend on who you ask. People that are not into swinging will typically consider it cheating. However, as long as both parties are aware and okay with the other engaging in sexual activity with other partners, then most do not consider this cheating.


Cheating is typically when one partner goes behind the back of another partner and has sex without their partner knowing about it. This is something that is frowned upon as it is emotionally painful and physically dangerous, especially if a condom is not used during the act.


Swinging is something that is typically consensual between 2 adults. They will both agree that they wish to have other sexual partners. Usually their partners are around when this happens. Swinger’s parties will involve several sets of couples that are into swinging. They will all meet and have sex with each other. As long as the other partner is aware of the sexual acts that the other partner is taking part in and is okay with it, then it should not be considered cheating.


A lot of people will consider cheating to be whenever their partner has sex with anybody besides them. These people are not usually into swinging and will therefore not date somebody that is into swinging. This is why it is important to let your partner know right off the bat that you are into swinging so you can go from there.
