So I guess my answer to your question is that I don't know really how to identify (monoflexible?) but that for me I'm somewhere in the gray area.
There has been a discussion of a poly scale. Like the kinsey scale. To better describe some peoples place in relationships. Two methods to that thinking

mono <-> non-monogamy

then the second one could be

swinger <-> poly

For example I am a resounding 6 (non monogamist) on the first scale and a 4 or 5 on the poly one.

...its been tossed around in a few variations. Credit to the first thought I believe goes to idealist
