In our review we have omitted the dating apps like Badoo, Down, Tinder, POF. Neither they make couples registration possible, nor their atmosphere facilitates searching for couples.

We have also skipped some swingers-positive websites-Swinger Zone Central, Local Sexy Swingers and Fetlife. Because they don’t offer apps for swingers, while their archaic design is a huge obstacle for operating them with one’s smartphone.

Diversity and progress serving to sexuality development

Each generation thinks it invented sex, Robert Heinlein once claimed. The millennials have not invented sex but renamed it. New sexual revolution is here in the form of hook-up culture breakout.

Fast, manageable and safe non-committed dating is becoming the fashion not only in terms of one-time sex between two people. This can be seen from active emergence of new swingerapps. This revolution and technology advancement make the breeding ground for development of sexuality and fulfillment of the humanity desires.

We have listed the venues for swingers dating in our reviews of swingers clubs and events of Europe, the  USA and New York.

More on technologies and their role in life of sex-positive people can be read in our article Online Portrait of Fetlife, Pornhub, Tumblr, WhipIr Sexual Fantasies.
