Soft swap is a term used by individuals who are into the swinger lifestyle or partner swapping. It refers to sexual activities in swinger play, but does not include penetrative sex of another person's partner. Soft swap swingers have a range of different limits. For instance, some may only want to have sex in the same room as other swingers. Others, however, may be open to the idea of kissing, fondling, oral sex, and analingus with other swingers. It's generally a good idea for swingers to decide whether they are soft swap or full swap before they engage in any sexual activities with other swingers.
