Brian and Brenna met over a mutual interest in BDSM but became committed BECAUSE of their desire to share their partner. They talk about compersion, royalty perk, jealousy, and other factors at play when married couples get into the lifestyle.
A couple both on their second marriages find freedom in the lifestyle to explore things their former spouses wouldn't allow and discover things once thought as taboo that have them enjoying sex more than ever before.
Rae was in a 12-year marriage where sex was forced and religion had a hold on her happiness, but she's broken those chains. She remarried a man who wants to share her with others, making her what's known in the lifestyle as a "hotwife" or a shared wife, where she has sex with other men and it turns her husband on. However, right now...it's a one-way street.
Taara and James started their relationship as non-monogamous but found that others in the lifestyle didn't want to play with them because they were young and weren't in a committed relationship. So they became committed and found freedom in it. They also explain why they've decided to be open about their swinging lifestyle to friends and family; making their secret life, not so secret anymore.
