Fucking doesn't require any emotions. It only requires some bit of lust. There's nothing to keep separate many times because there are no emotions present, and we certainly don't have to ignore what isn't present.
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.
