Swinging is an alternative lifestyle that is enjoyed by consenting adults who share similar personalities and interests. This adult-oriented practice can be considered taboo and illicit to some, but this is a lifestyle that is enjoyed safely by many in the New Orleans area. Because of this, certain venues, couples clubs and organizations have been established in the area to accommodate those who are interested.
