Swinging also boosts ancillary services such as breast enhancements and erectile dysfunction drugs. "Viagra is definitely part of the adult scene," said Deborah, a 52-year old aesthetician grandmother from Dallas, Texas, who asked that her last name not be used. "Instead of four stars before, it's probably five stars now."
On second thought, is there a more sexy phrase in this whole wide world of ours than "a 52-year old aesthetician grandmother"? --Robert Wilonsky
