    No, it’s really not like swinging for the most part. Swinging tends to be a solid couple who’re each others’ focus who seek sex elsewhere while poly is about people seeking relationships & emotional intimacy beyond the standard pair model. In swinging for instance, it’d be VERY unusual for a guy to get to know someone who has sex with his wife down at the club but in poly it’s normal for those 2 guys to get to know each other and be friends. Swinging is also generally more casual while witht he poly drive towards relationships deliberate families are much more common. There’s some small overlap in the groups but in general they’re not the same as people from both groups will happily explain.

    James – sorry if you took offense to my post. In reality i was just trying to make a joke. One of my favorite shows is ‘Big Love’ (I’m assuming its no coincidence this article came out a day after the premier of it’s second season, btw). And it’s hard not to watch that show with a sense of wonder and almost envy for their incredible communication and cooperation. I know it’s only a TV show, but, for the most part, it is my only exposure to that world. I do recognize there are vast differences between the two practices, but I was simply trying to entice people to actually read the article (which argues that with the state of marriage today perhaps alternative forms of ‘happily ever after’ DO need to be explored). I wouldn’t have posted it, or anything for that matter, if i didn’t think there was some real merit in it. But thanks for your comment.
