Swinging is reported to be on the rise, according to  New York Post. There are as many as 15 million Americans habitually swapping partners to spice up their sex lives. And research has revealed swingers in the US are “mostly white, middle-aged and middle income.”

According to the Sun, flamingos symbolize swinging, with partner swappers placing plastic replicas of the bird in their front yards to let others know they’re up for a good time. Meanwhile, garden gnomes have also become another domestic decoration that secretly signifies swinging.

Pampas grass planted in a person’s front yard is one telltale sign you’ve got a neighbor with a busy bedroom. Upside-down pineapples have joined pampas grass as a swinger symbol. Next time you’re doing the grocery shopping and spot a neighbor, check to see whether they’re wearing a black ring on their right hand. Cooper Beckett, host of the “Life on the Swingset” podcast, said it’s an obvious symbol for other swingers to pick up on.
