Oh, I most certainly think you see people who are fearful at first, but then do some soul searching and stepping outside their original box to find it fits them!
I think struggling with a concept is good-- it means you're looking it over and doing some soul-searching and questioning your beliefs. I always think that's a good thing.
I just think that sometimes you do all of that and realize it's not for you (like swinging or more recreational sex in my own case), and that's okay too.
