Hmmm...the poly friends we have include (with some overlap) Pagans, Burners, gamers, tech geeks, and artists. Of course, I think that stands to reason as we're Burners and Pagan (and I'm a gamer and musician/artist, and bit of a tech geek).
I think you can find poly folk in most any group, though some are more likely to have poly members than others.
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.
