It’s on my bucket list...but I’m not in a relationship so I wouldn’t have to worry about jealousy

I suspect polyamory will ultimately be more widely accepted than swinging because polyamory is relational. To each their own, though, regardless of what society says. As long as it’s consensual.

No, if I'm in a loving relationship, I'm not interested in anyone else

There’s never a “way of the future” when it comes to sex and relationships. They’re such profoundly personal choices. Guess I’m the lonesmile038.gif non-monogamist here so I’ll chime in a bit. I’m polyamorous but not a swinger. However, one of my beaus has a kink for seeing me with someone else. The more strange, the better. I’m considering this not because I’m particularly into the partner sharing but because it’ll stoke my relationship with beau #1.

I absolutely get that this isn’t a thing a lot of people could do or want to do. I’m okay with that. I think we all need to give each other the latitude to feel fulfilled in our relationships with a little more open-mindedness.

It isn't for everyone. I hope that the world does get around to accepting all different styles of relationships. I like the poly relationships where more than two adults are living and loving together while raising a family. I think kids growing up seeing all facets of romantic love, between men, between women, hetero, and everything else is a good role model so that they can grow into whatever adults they like without all the hangups I see folks have today.

I don't think swinging brings any intimacy but I have no issue with it. I am however polyamorous which a lot of people see as swinging but it's more relationship based than sex based.

I've lived that lifestyle, it's not for everyone, including me. It sure will stroke the hell out of your ego though

I’ve enjoyed it, as much as possible, meaning I have yet to find a secure, non-jealous partner.

That said, many (not all) swingers are “stuck in high school”, and just want to drink and party.

Some are quite mature and their company is immensely enjoyable

For some it has been the wave of the past. I don't think it will change in the future. For me it lacks any real fulfillment.

I think the growing acceptance of same-sex relationships will result in growing acceptance of other diverse relationships. I don't know we will see institutional acceptance in our lifetime...

It works for some people and not for others. I have done it and enjoyed it. I have also been perfectly content in monogamous relationships.

I don't see the attraction, honestly.

I never found such a lifestyle be particularly interesting or exciting. Tried to play with the swingers in my early 20s, but quickly grew bored with it. I had learned that i enjoyed more physical and emotional substance to my relationships.

Not for me. Monogamy all the way for me ... but to each their own!

I lived in playboy city in Germany (Heidelberg) for 15 years. I lived in a smallish house in the old city and had the town American "playboy" as a neighbor and best friend. He always had a woman living with him, albeit part time, but had lots on the side and often a new one would move the old one out of the way and take over. He never got married and always wondered how many kids he had. He was 6' 4" 190 lbs. and an officer in the reserves and knew how to wrap (some) women around his finger. He still lives in the same small, old apartment (but is well off financially) but has gotten older (he is now about 77) fatter and bent over (his lifestyle has caught up with him). No more girlfriends and only work. Any relationships he has had were short lived and I see his life as being empty. We are still friends and I occasionally hear from him.

Swinging is something I have never tried, At 68 now while I always enjoy giving and receiving in body pleasures with a woman partner I believe , Swing activity is for healthy people up to. Middle Age for couples who also enjoy the Social aspect of the Lifestyle.
