As many as 4, swingers from 36 countries will descend on "Sin City" and the Tropicana hotel-casino for the 25th annual Lifestyles Convention today through Saturday. Members of the lifestyle are organized and ready to, if not step out of the closet entirely, at least become more public about their activities. Even at the dawning of a new century, much of society still considers swinging anti-social behavior, even though McGinley -- who holds a doctorate in psychology -- has seen dramatic changes from the old days when swingers were perceived as perverse in their activities.
Swingers today are a bit older, 35 to 49 instead of in their 20s and 30s, and better educated. Many consider themselves sexual revolutionaries. They hold responsible positions and realize that the stigma that clings to the lifestyle is not as easily stripped away as clothing at a swinger's party, so they remain anonymous and pursue their pleasures among like-minded friends, and friends of friends.
When they wear clothing, they often have white collars and may be your doctor or lawyer or school teacher. Steve Mason, a psychologist, radio talk show host, columnist and spokesman for the convention, said swingers range from the age of consent to couples in their 80s, with the vast majority in their late 30s and early 40s. The are generally college educated.
The average couple is a male with a college degree and a female with two years of college. Sexually, they may be bored and looking to put a little spice in their lives without giving up the spouse to whom they swore to be faithful. The Lifestyles '98 Convention is being sponsored by Air Jamaica, Air California and four international resorts that cater to those in the lifestyle.
The Las Vegas convention is the largest in the 25 years the event has been held. Only people attended the first one in Riverside, Calif. Last year 1, attended the one in Palm Springs. This year's convention will feature booths of interest to swingers and non-swingers, including one reserved recently by "The Jerry Springer Show" -- apparently an effort to recruit guests. Along with the adult marketplace exhibits, the 8th annual Sensual and Erotic Art Exhibit will be held.
There will be various social gatherings throughout the three-day affair and The Museum of Sex, based in New York City, will be at the Lifestyles Convention to hold its first membership drive. The newly-created museum is devoted to the history, evolution and social ificance of sex. But the convention is not all about sex, McGinley emphasized: It's about couples -- after all, only couples may attend. And it's about relationships. Swinging couples, according to McGinley, have a degree of honesty and communication between them "that is not common in American marriages.
McGinley said the first conventions focused on swinging, but the lifestyle has evolved and now the focus is on relationships -- which may include swinging, or not. Mason and his first wife were swingers in the s and s. After 17 years of marriage, they parted friends but they still run into each other at swinging conventions. He met his current wife at one of the gatherings.
