Swingers in the Media
We are JoJo and DirtyDavid. we are a swinging couple in an open relationship. We do not hide our swinging. We are not adverse to press coverage of our swinging activities, as long as the reports are:
- Non sensational
- Respectful of peoples identity
We openly talk to researchers for TV programs so that they are given an honest view of what swinging is about and what really happens at clubs and parties. We feel this is much better than their having to think up scenarios which could further tarnish the reputation of swinging.
Since the summer of 2000 we have been in several publications and TV programmes from choice, and in some (News of the World) because they need to sensationalize sex in order to sell their rags.

We have turned down the Trisha and Kilroy shows on several occasions and will continue to do so. Our reasons for this are:
- We do not feel that day time TV is the place to discuss sexual activities due to the large number of children watching.
- these programmes are always edited to reflect the topic of that days programme - they will cut all valid argument that does not match their chosen agenda for the day.
- the programmes are not a forum for open debate. they decide before the guests are invited which side of any debate will be presented as reasonable and which presented as extreme.
- We always insist that any interviews we give or recordings we make may only be used in articles that present swinging in a balanced way.
We are willing to give interviews to any publication or programme that is going to show swinging in a positive or balanced way. We want to work with other high profile swingers to scrape away the seedy reputation the lifestyle has acquired through the un-educated reportage in the past.
