About This Quiz

To a lot of people, the term "lifestyle" doesn't mean much more than the simple stuff about how you live your life. Your lifestyle is that of an affluent accountant. Or a grocery clerk. Or a poet! But to some people, the term "the lifestyle" denotes something very different. Essentially, it's the world of swingers and those sorts of open relationships that may include inviting extra people in or engaging in various dominant/submissive relationships. Often "the lifestyle" involves a local scene of like-minded people who may even get together for weekly or monthly gatherings. Some members of "the lifestyle" take this stuff very, very seriously. Some just want to do it for fun, and yet others are fairly new to the whole thing, so they're just testing the waters to see if they like it at all or not. 

If you've ever pondered "the lifestyle," you may not have been entirely sure if it's right for you. There are always going to be aspects that don't appeal to everyone, and then some that do. It may seem too involved or too confusing. After all, this all deals with an aspect of our lives, of society itself, that we're told to keep private all the time. How do you decide? Let us help! Take the quiz and see if "the lifestyle" is right for you.
