Whether this is a book about swingers or not a book about swingers might be up for debate. But the first chapter of this book was written about the writer's and his wife's visit, with permission and knowledge of the owners, to a well-known swingers' club. They came away with the notion that it is definitely not for them but the people they found at the club are as normal and normal could be. An interesting observation from a writer and his wife who knew nearly nothing about the lifestyle before they started their research. I read this chapter out-loud to my wife and we came to several points in the narrative where were where both paralyzed with laughter.
Sagal's dry sense of humor is not going to be appreciated by everybody but if you like his style (you can hear samples of it on NPR on Saturday mornings), you'll love this book and not only the chapter about swingers. One of the observations that slayed me was his comparison of single men at swingers' clubs as Tribbles with Erections. I found it significant his serious observation that the shots are not really called in the lifestyle by females. If the females were calling the shots, the club really would be full of single males. His supposition is that the husbands of the swinging wives do not want competition from the single men and have concocted the rule to make sure that are not crowded out of the action. He seems to have quickly and accurately identified plenty of other typical personality types who inhabit the lifestyle.
Beneficial to have this view from an outsider. Very entertaining as well.
