Is Swinging Legal?
- In Canada - A judge in Montreal ruled that swapping sexual partners is legal in Canada. Municipal Court Judge Denis Boisvert placed a major condition on his ruling, which is bound to add to Canada's image as an increasingly tolerant nation. The judge said that mate swapping is okay as long as it doesn't take place in public. He said: "Contemporary Canadian society tolerates swinging and swinger clubs if the sexual practices take place in private."
- The minimum legal age to enter a swingers club or party in Canada is 18.
- In the USA, the legal age to swing varies between 18 and 21 depending on local laws.
- In Europe, Australia and New Zealand swinging is legal between partners over the age of 16, though most swingers, swingers clubs and swingers parties enforce a rule that you must be over 18 to join their sites, clubs and parties.
- In most other democratic countries swinging is also legal. The main exceptions being Islamic states which forbid swinging at all. It is still possible to find swingers in Islamic countries where people risk everything to exercise their natural human rights to have contact with other people without interference from religious extremists or politicians.
