SS 18: Blurring the Lines Between Polyamory and Swinging – Non Monogamy Cums Together


In Ep 18, we invite two new friends onto the swingset for our discussion of the blurred line between polyamory and swinging. In this discussion we attempt to define the two terms and then break down our own definitions, we expand further with how we relate to friends and lovers.

  1. I found this episode very informative. Quite frankly, Anne falling in love with someone else freaks me out. However, I have been reading Opening Up. So, between that book and this podcast it freaks me out less. It isn't something she is seeking to do, but I certainly wouldn't tell her no outright if it arose. However, I would need to take a good hard look at myself before I was comfortable with it.

  2. I actually just gave 3 copies of opening up away as gifts yesterday.
    It is the perfect book for people wishing to know about poly and non monogamy in general.
    It has become my "poly info" gift book of choice.
