Our Review

SwingLifestyle (abbreviated SLS) has been serving the niche for swingers since 2001. It advertises itself as an "alternative lifestyle dating" website due to the stigma surrounding swinging. 

With a bold tagline that reads "Start Your Sexual Revolution," SwingLifestyle attracts open-minded swingers for non-conventional relationships and arrangements. These activities include partner swapping, threesomes, orgies, and the likes. 

Apart from these risque bedroom antics, the swinger site can also help in networking. It has functionalities that allow a member to form or join groups, forums, and events.

SLS claims its a community where sex and atypical relations abound. But does it? Or is SLS another website that's in it for your money. We took the time to explore SLS; read on to find out if the world's oldest swinger site is worth trying.

  • Claims to have more than 16 million registered members worldwide
  • Records over 5 million monthly visits globally
  • Male users dominate the website
  • Couples are just as active as men and women
  • Most of the users are aged 25 and up

SwingLifestyle is quite popular with over 16 million registered members across the globe. Top visitors are usually from countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia. Still, the website enjoys over 5 million visits globally and is used in Asian, Latin, and European territories.

Apart from the impressive user count, the people on this site are also very active when it comes to contacting fellow members. SwingLifestyle members are committed, with active swingers not reaching below 5,000 at any given moment, 300 chat rooms, and about 7,000 newcomers each week.

SwingLifestyle users are also proactive. They know what they want and they know how to get it. During our test one of the couples messaged us saying that they knew how limited chatting was for a free user, so they gave their Kik username upfront. There are no doubts on this site, and the first messages you usually receive are direct propositions.

Thanks to its forward and blunt approach to sex, the website is popular with the younger male crew. Users aged north of 18, mostly at 25, frequent the site. Plentiful couples also welcomed the activity and are one of the most active sectors in the SwingLifestyle community.

Signing Up

Swing Lifestyle Registration
  • Must be at least 18 years old to sign up
  • Swingers who join can be singles and couples
  • It is not mandatory to upload a profile photo
  • Registering via Facebook is not an available option

If you're at least 18 years old looking for some hot swinging action, registration is easy and only takes a few minutes.

You just have to provide a username that hasn't already been in user, your email, some basic information about what you're looking for, and you're good to go. 

Registration can also be done on their mirror website sls.com. Clicking on the "Join Free" button there and it redirects you back to SwingLifestyle.

Lastly, uploading your primary photo is not a requirement so you can immediately search for interesting couples or activities after signing up at SwingLifestyle.

Making Contact

Swing Lifestyle Messaging
  • Free members can only receive and read messages
  • Sending and replying to messages is a paid feature
  • A chatroom function is available
  • New messages show up as pop-ups

As a free user browsing the site, you will receive new messages as pop-ups.

Like most chatting systems, you can only read the latest message. But you can't open the conversation or even click the reply button because only premium members can use the IM feature.

This is extremely limiting as other swingers could get the wrong impression and think that you're just ignoring them. On the bright side, you are viewed as a credible member if you initiate and reply to messages because people will immediately know you are a person paying for this feature.

Profile Quality

Swing Lifestyle Profile
  • Profiles are quite detailed
  • Viewing full-sized profile photos is a free function
  • Profile details can be changed for later
  • Premium members can choose to hide their profiles from free members
  • Nudity is blurred for free members
  • Instead of checklists, users are encouraged to describe themselves in text boxes

    Paying members can make their profiles invisible from free members. This is a useful feature for when you want to make sure you're only contacted by serious swingers. Those paying members can still see the profiles of free members though and if they like what they see, they can initiate the conversation.

    Nude profile photos are blurred for free members, which seems like a good idea because it would keep scammers and "undesirables" away from the website.

    Speaking of scammers, users may not be checked for email verification, but profile photos are verified by SwingLifestyle staff. Fake profiles are also easy to spot since most of the members are serious about swinging in this website. You can report suspicious accounts at the "Profile View" tab.

    Real Life Review

    "My wife and I have been on the lifestyle for 6 years, and during those 6 years, we've been using this website on and off. We love this website because there are so many swingers signed up, and we can find EXACTLY who we want (with a bit of effort, of course). Our last FWB, who lasted a year, we met through here. Now we're looking for our next partners on the site, and this time we want to try being with a couple."

    Design and Usability

    Most of the main features for the site are always on the left side of the page, making it easy to navigate no matter which page you're on.

    You are notified of new messages by a sound and a pop-up, so they're impossible to miss. The functions are user-friendly; they can be understood even by the oldest swingers on the site. The icons and illustrations are outdated, but they don't hinder the swinging experience.

    Special Features

    SwingLifeStyle doesn't just provide swingers with opportunities to communicate on the website—they encourage you to meet with others in events both intimate and grand. 

    Hot Date

    The Hot Date is basically a public calendar on the website where you can advertise to everyone when you're free or find someone else who's willing for a date on a particular day. It can work either as a speed dating or event announcement tool. Through this feature, you can schedule a meeting with a swinger or multiple swingers at once.

    Travel

    With over 15 years of experience in the lifestyle travel industry, SwingLifeStyle has spawned its own travel agency. Topless Travel is an agency created specifically for official members of SwingLifeStyle. Even though most of the events here are usually week-long cruises to swinger destinations, there are still intimate house parties, parades, safari adventures, and more.

    Swinger Clubs

    SwingLifeStyle provides people with an active map of the US where you can click on your state and find clubs that serve the swinger lifestyle. However, they didn't make it themselves. The people are encouraged to upload their own clubs, with a few rules. The club must be a members-only lifestyle club (which means no public bars, adult shops, adult theatres, etc).
