(Newser) – Swingers Jim Trulock and Julie Norris think they should be allowed to have sex in the privacy of their own home—with 100 of their closest friends. Unfortunately, the Dallas suburb they live in disagrees, Newsweek reports. Trulock and Norris have twice been charged with running a sex club after holding wild, sex-drenched parties. “It's none of the government's business!” their lawyer insists.

The couple is fighting back, launching lawsuits against the city. Recent Supreme Court rulings say the government can’t regulate private activity, their lawyer says. “Any kind of private activity, (even) wearing pink socks in your home.” Swingers are a growing subculture of sexual socializers that Texas isn’t comfortable with. “The fear is if one little town can do it, then everyone can,” Norris says.
