Any attempt to generalize all humans as being naturally suited for one subset of that variety is bound to be inaccurate at its foundation.

So, while I would agree that more people could enjoy doing poly than currently do, I disagree that everybody is naturally suited to doing poly.

OK, I'm finished applying the wet blanket. Enjoy your newfound liberation!
When speaking of various forms of 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.
