  • I think "why bother being married or in a relationship if you're going to sleep with other people". But hey, none of my buisness.

  • To each there own...I was a swinger,but that was when I was single. I could NEVER do that with or without my SO present.

  • I think its stupid.. Why would you want to be intimate with someone who wants to be intimate with other people. A "RELATIONSHIP" to me.. is where two people love one another and want to spend their lives together.

  • Umm....I don't get why they got married in the first place? Why not have their "open relationship" and leave marriage out of it? I mean, people can whatever kind of relationship they want to have, but getting married seems like a waste of time to me. It kind of degrades the name of marriage.

  • I prefer them. I was in one prior to meeting my husband and it was wonderful. My husband on the other hand is the kind that after 5 years of marriage still covers himself if I walk in the room while he's changing, so he simply won't do that kind of thing, he's to embarrassed. But I've tried to encourage it over the years. I would love to have that kind of relationship again, IMO, it's the only problem with our marriage. My husband is my perfect match in almost every way - accept the bedroom, and he isn't willing to experiment, AND I think that goes both ways... So it would be nice to have the ability to have a girlfriend, but he's not comfortable with it, so I don't.

  • I believe in those type of relationships it's more about sex...sex can be just sex and not have any emotional involvement. There are usually rules they agree upon. I think they are free to get whatever it is they lack in the bedroom but in the end they are together and get everything else they need from each other.

  • I couldn't do an "open" relationship. The thought of my SO's parts touching another person makes me nausous, and I would constantly be worried about herpes and other STD's.

    No thanks.

    I actually would not be able to sleep with my husband again if he touched another woman. . . it would be over.
