I always believed swinging to be when a couple has sex with other couples together. You communicate as a couple and all that goes into that meeting with the other couple(s).
Open Marriage I understood to be when a couple has a separate single life apart from their respected other. There is no or limited amount of communication between the husband and wife/partners when they partake sexually with others. Which is much different than swinging. Yes?
Yet I hear over and over that open marriage and swinging are one and the same. Will someone please clarify this for me.
