I was wondering this too. Dating as a single person just by proxy means having sex with many people where I come from. What makes it poly is the love that comes into it and the consent from all those involved.
Swinging where I am is not neceassily about being overly sexual. I know plenty poly folk who get laid way more than swingers, just that swinging is more couple centric, hetro centric and love is almost a dirty word. More organized for sex get togethers than anything else. Nothing to do with partners.
