How many people are swingers or polyamorous?

You see figures all over the media about how many people are swingers, polyamorous or have some other form of open relationship. The truth is that all the stats are just educated guesses since many people are very guarded about their relationship type and won’t be honest even if asked in complete anonymity.

From my personal experience and research I’ve found this:

  • 1 in 100 couples are active swingers or have some other form of open relationship
  • 1 in 4 couples dabble in an open relationship of some type, whether it’s swinging, polyamory, a threesome once in a while or something else.

The simple fact is that open relationships are more common than most would want to admit and more and more people are realizing every day that they don’t have to be monogamous to be in love with each other and happy as society tells them.
