"Shocking Sex Poll Results"

American Chronicle

The online news magazine American Chronicle ran a column by the sex-and-relationships advisors "Ask Dan and Jennifer" titled, "Shocking Sex Poll Results — The Surprising Verdict on Swinging and Polyamory!" (March 4, 2007). It was a followup to an earlier article they posted, "My Best Friend’s a Swinger — Will She Burn in Hell?", where they invited readers to take a poll: "Would You Consider Swinging or Polyamory?"

The conversation was heated and downright amazing. More than 3000 of our readers spoke out and the answers will surprise you....

51% of the people [responding] were either active in the swinging lifestyle or willing to try it, while only 36% were strongly against it or said that monogamy is the only way to go. The other 13% of our readers said that it's not for them, but they don't have a problem if someone else does it.... It looks like Swinging and Polyamory are in!

Self-selected internet polls are ridiculously unscientific, but they say something about the people who came to a particular site and felt motivated to respond. Read the whole article.

Thanks, Alan, that was really interesting. Did anyone else notice that in the comments after the original post, those who were being the most vituperative (on BOTH sides) seemed to also be having the most trouble with spelling and grammar? Fascinating. :)
