LOL- yes- suggesting someone is a swinger is frowned upon in poly circles. I identify as poly in some circles AND as a swinger in other circles. I actually have more relationships with people who identify as swingers. The interesting thing about labels is that poly people are supposed to be so ethical etc. etc. And swingers are supposed to be hedonistic and shallow. I have actually experienced the opposite in my life. The people i have encountered that identify as poly have been full of drama and their relationships aren't working so well. The people i know who identify as swingers are ethical, emotionally mature, in healthy long term relationships, stable, fun......and the list goes on! Life is funny, people are interesting and labels are misleading.
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
