It rang a bell with me, too--the author apparently has very little experience with poly folk.
I've met very few poly folk who are economically privileged. Predominantly, those without children are young and have put off childbearing or are old enough their children are grown; I certainly wouldn't say those without children constitute a majority.
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.
