I'm being picky, but his and her combined body weight, plus the force induced by the swing, would pull his arm out straighter and his shoulder higher. It's like they're sitting down and the rope is just a safety rail keeping them balanced.
The mischevious part of me imagines a large tree trunk just off the right !!

You are right as usual Mark but isn't there a good case for ignoring the laws of gravity with comic book representations of Tarzan. When you seek a physical reference from a Tarzan film (and I took a look) most of them interestingly don't dwell on the tree swing for too long - maybe because the effect of the conditions you describe on real people robs them of any elegance and makes them look really silly.
