Swingers are by definition casual about sex.

The Qualms, in its New York premiere at Playwrights Horizons through July 12th, presents the tantalizing proposition that swapping is fun and easy. The temptation of free love to a couple just starting their marriage suggests that this party will inevitably go awry.

Relationships are notoriously difficult. Sex with strangers can demarcate the fault lines in even an established union.

There are many phyla in coupledom. The Qualms focuses on two: those who swap and those who don’t. For those who do, swinging is integral to their relationships. For those who don’t, it’s cheating even when both partners agree to try it. Nothing slows a party down like a man with qualms about cheating on his wife.
