Sometimes, but not always, and perhaps not usually.

While both poly and swinging are forms of ethical non-monogamy, many, many polyfolk would never swing or take part in recreational sex or be involved sexually at all without investing in a loving relationship with someone. Some could be quite turned off by your username, in fact, because there is often a divide or slight prejudice in some poly communities toward swingers. Most of the time, polyfolk are working hard to dispel the misconception that often exists, among the general public, that poly is the same as swinging or all about casual sex. So, if you are at a poly site and looking to meet people for a potential relationship, it's good to get clear about the fact that you want relationships and not just sex. By the way, there are plenty of members here who are poly and do swing, or came to poly via swinging.
