If those that swing have an issue with using that word, maybe it's time to reclaim it and to remove the (possibly perceived) stigma associated with it.
That's kind of it for me. I think you can be poly AND swing AND BDSM.
I'm poly, and I have a D/s relationship (well two). I wouldn't say I'm one or the other, I would say I am both.
I don't understand what the big deal is of saying "we're poly swingers". OK I get it-you have (or are open to) sex with and without love AND you have (or are open to)multiple loves-clear as day to me....
