Dear Angela: A couple of weeks ago our private swingers club reopened after 18 months. My husband (47) and I (43) were delighted, we had missed it so much.

o our disappointment the owners threw out our favourite sex toy when they were renovating: a huge love swing that we’d enjoyed dozens of times. They explained it was too dangerous and that they can’t risk anybody getting hurt and suing them.

Apparently somebody hurt their penis on a love swing in another club. Are love swings really that dangerous? I’d like to get one for my own house, but only if it’s safe.

Answer: Love swings allow you to practice tricky positions that you’d never manage on your own, and many of these positions are way more dangerous than plain vanilla sex.

Therefore, swing-sex involves a higher risk of injury, from harmless bruises to painful penis injuries. Don’t let that put you off, though.

Penis injuries can happen in very basic positions as well, like when the woman is on top. If you’d like to get a love swing for your home, go for it.

You’ve used one before, so I’m sure you’re experienced enough to know how to play reasonably safe. Make sure you assemble and anchor your swing properly, and take it easy for starters.
