When it comes to sex outside relationships there's a whole range of different situations that can occur: one night stands, friends with benefits, open relationship etc. Most people aren't comfortable with at least one of those, but may be comfortable with one of the others upon giving it a try. I'm not keen on one night stands but don't mind the other situations as much, some people would be the reverse. My one main piece of advice would be to not assume you wouldn't be okay with something like this when you haven't tried it yet, as if I'd said "open relationship" to Ellen and Becky from the start I'm almost entirely sure I'd have got 2 big fat "no"s, but because of the timing and letting things evolve naturally it ended up working for all of us.
It's probably me just being me, but I just don't like the idea of the whole "open" thing. I don't know whether it's because I just don't care that much about sex as a whole or whether it's just because I prefer the idea of a "proper" relationship.
