Swinger Statistics – The State of Swinging in the USA

Every state in America has its share of open minded, sexually progressive couples. Many of these couples have at one time or another experimented with the swinger lifestyle. Today we rank every US state in terms of the number of swingers per capita. The results may surprise you.

Research Methodology

Our rankings are based on research conducted using the largest swingers dating site in the United States, AdultFriendFinder. We tabulated the total number of swingers, per state, seeking either a single male, single female, or couple. When then compared these results to the population of each state, resulting in a per capita ranking of each state. The state population data used in our survey dates back to 2015 and can be found here.

We chose to use the AdultFriendFinder database because it is where most American couples turn to for their adult social networking needs. Simply put, it is overwhelmingly the most popular dating and personals site for open minded singles and couples.

About the rankings

It is important to note that we are not ranking states in terms of the total number of couples who engage in swinging. The rankings we are sharing today document the number of swingers per capita.

Wyoming is a fairly small state, but it ranks #1 in terms of the number of swingers per capita. The least active state in terms of swinging seems to be New Jersey which ranked last in our research. We did not find any correlation between state population and ranking, but we did note a loose correlation between per capita income and the number of swingers in each state. Surprisingly, it seems that states with higher per capita incomes engage in less swinging activity that their lower-income peers.

A few interesting statistics discovered during our research

  • couples who engage in swinging overwhelmingly prefer the company of either a single female for a threesome or another couple for a foursome.
  • less than 25% of swingers are seeking single males.
  • the number of single women seeking couples for a threesome is almost twice as high as the number of single men doing the same.
  • Single women on AdultFriendFinder are much more open to connecting with swingers than men – by a ratio of almost 2-to-1.
