Who’d have guessed there were hundreds upon hundreds of “swapping” books released from the short span of the mid-1960s through the mid 1970s? And by “swapping” I don’t just mean the standard wife swapping – we’re talking swaps of all flavors.
While I can’t possibly bring you every single vintage swap book (that might literally break the internet), I can deliver a generous supply – just to demonstrate how insanely prevalent these books were.
Suzie Swaps!/ Letters from a Swapped Wife/ Spicy Meatball Swap
You’ll note that most swapping books are courtesy Greenleaf publications; a fine purveyor of vintage smut.

You can quite literally take any turn-of-phrase and turn it into a swapper book. “Sock it to me” becomes “Swap it to me” (an actual title). It works for anything – “Sense and Sensibility” becomes “Sense and Swapability”…. give it a try!
