Lots of new-to-the-lifestyle couples worry about what will happen if they get outed as swingers in their communities and/or families. The prospect of non-lifestyle friends and family discovering your sex life choices can be incredibly intimidating for many, if not most, people. This is one of the most important swinger lifestyle topics that nobody really wants to talk about.

We also offer some thoughts and ideas for you about the prospect of being outed, and give you some food for thought about how you might handle it if this were to happen to you.
