Og's song from Finian's Rainbow comes to mind:
When I'm not near the girl I love,
I love the girl I'm near!
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.
