STI risk from middle-aged 'swingers'

24th June 2010

British swingers – straight couples who regularly swap sexual partners – have been warned they are a high risk group for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by the Family Planning Association.

It follows a report that showed that one in nine patients at three Dutch clinics was a swinger and partner-swappers accounted for 55% of all STIs in those older than 45. With middle-aged swingers a hidden and significant source of STIs, the FPA warned that the over-45s in this country are generally forgotten about in terms of sexual health information.
