The terminology that I use is the following:
- Responsible non-monogamy (which I think most people refer to as "Open relationship"
We have had discussions about the difference between Swinging and poly so I won't go into that there.
The problem is that there are forms of poly which aren't "Open" - they even refer to themselves as "closed". The term "open" is highly overloaded - it means different things to different people, so I really try to avoid using it, because it can often cause more confusion.
There are poly forums and swinger forums - I wonder what is out there that doesn't cover the stuff that those types of forums cover.
Please check out The Birdcage - an open, friendly Polyamory forum for all parts of New York State
