Imagine a world of complete transparency within relationships.

A transparency that translates to less infidelity, less confinement and fewer insecurities, but more trust, more fun and more freedom.

I'm talking about a world of open relationships. More specifically, I'm talking about swinging.

A couple years ago, ABC News did a special segment about Gen-Y couples who swing.

In an article, ABC News reported, "Forget the notion that swingers parties are full of middle-aged folks who are bored stiff by years of marriage."

How common is swinging? Given the number of young couples I've met in LA and Las Vegas who are into the lifestyle, it seems the trend for Gen-Y is getting bigger. They just don't talk about it.

To put it simply, swingers are couples, usually who are in committed relationships or are married, who swap partners.

But the world of swinging is much too vast to define in one sentence.

There isn't just one way for couples to swing. It all depends on a couple's mutual preference.

So what do swingers do exactly? How do they meet? Below is an overview for everything you need to know about swinging:
