What is your opinion on the subject of swinging?
More power to 'em. I figure they can do their thing and we can do ours. Those who come to poly via swinging are quite welcome.
I'm not interested in swinging, nor am I interested in dating any swingers. Tried it once long ago and that was more than enough.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
