Forty-four-year-old Cristy and Dean Parave, 50, have found a rather questionable way when it comes to influencing others about religion—through a swinging network.

The couple, who aside from being devout Christians are also fitness buffs, set up FitnessSwingers.com in order to meet couples of similar influences.
Swinging and religion may not be an eyebrow-raising combination, but both Cristy and Dean have had encounters with other couples where they engage in teaching Christian values as well as wife swapping.
Meeting people through the worldwide net seems to be something that the couple is very familiar of as they both meet through a dating Web site. Cristy already had three children from a previous marriage, Brittany, 23, Daryl, 20, and 17-year-old Rose.
She shares a deep respect for the Bible with Dean. But contrary to what it teaches about maintaining a monogamous relationship, Cristy has done extra marital relationships and has admitted to being bisexual.
She shrugs off the critics by saying, “Dean and I are both in agreement with this lifestyle, so we’re not committing adultery. God put people on the earth to breed and enjoy each other. I feel God is always with me and he has put us here for a reason.”
As for Dean, he didn’t always live a life focusing on health and fitness.
“For me, every day used to involve a case of beer and a bottle of Jack Daniels,” he says of his alcoholic past. “After my fifth arrest for driving under the influence, I begged God for help.”
Cristy and Dean are now married. The couple seemed to have found a perfect match with each other. Not only are they compatible in terms of habits and religion, but their sexual chemistry is off the charts.
“The sex between my first husband and I was miserable. I was undersexed before I met Dean but now we do it twice a day. It’s incredible,” Cristy says.
Their swinging hobby began on a random day in Home Depot, when a couple asked if they were swingers. Unfamiliar with the term, they researched on the topic at home and found themselves interested in it.
“I had a very sexually adventurous friend who knew about swinging. I asked her if she wanted to try with Dean and I,” she candidly shares. The two women surprised Dean in the shower and it made the couple want to try swinging even more.
“Swinging to me started as a lifestyle,” Dean says of their endeavors. “And then it was like, you know what? We can do a lot of good with this. Instead of just, like, you know, let’s just have fun with this. I’m getting to people who will never even visit a church.”
The two set up the Web site and it went on full—pardon the pun—swing. Now they travel around the USA to meet couples who share their interest.
“So far today, God hasn’t said, ‘Hey, Dean, stop this, it’s a sin, I don’t want you to do this,’” Dean explains. “Until He does that, I’m going to keep on trying to help as many people as I can.”
