A woman who was part of the Mormon Moms TikTok network known as “MomTok” recently announced to her millions of followers that she is getting divorced. The reason? She said she and her husband took part in what she called “gentle swinging.”

Though unconfirmed, the video went viral and was widely — and salaciously — reported on social media. Many questions remain about the story, but whether true or not, it sheds light on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its teachings on sexuality in marriage.

On this week’s show, Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, a licensed therapist in Chicago who specializes in working with Latter-day Saint couples on sexuality and relationship issues, discusses these topics and more.
