"Nonmonogamy" refers to all forms of nonmonogamy. Swinging, open relationships, and polyamory are all forms of nonmonogamy.
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.
