I share your views on this very strongly. I am not a swinger, nor do I have any interest in it, but just because it's not something that I want to do doesn't mean that I look down on it or think that is is in some way "inferior".

I have heard people say that one was some sort of natural evolution from the other - I don't hold with that any more than I hold with open relationships being someone intrinsically "better" than monogamous ones.

Just because we have different priorities and needs in life doesn't mean that we can't respect those differences.
