Episode Description

What is it really like to be in an open relationship and the swinging lifestyle? How can you start to explore the lifestyle and have pleasurable experiences with your partner while maintaining a healthy relationship? Host Lexi Sylver is joined by lifestyle experts John and Jackie Melfi of Openlove 101, who were recently interviewed by CNN’s Lisa Ling for an episode of “This is Life”. They delve into John and Jackie’s relationship and their first swinging experience, as well as what being in the lifestyle means to them. They debunk myths about the lifestyle when it comes to who takes the lead, and prove that the swinging lifestyle is not all about sex. Jackie and Lexi talk about the sexual empowerment that women feel in the lifestyle. John and Jackie give advice for building healthy open relationships, how newbies to the lifestyle can talk to their partner before going to a swinger’s club for the first time, how to manage expectations, and what to do when swinging goes wrong.
