Publisher's Summary

Starting with a first date with a couple of swingers; followed by working through social anxiety and shyness; recognizing the importance of touch in life; evolving feelings about love and expectations; having threesomes, orgies, and prostate orgasms; going through a divorce; and leveling up in life and sexuality.
For five years, Cooper S. Beckett has written for Life on the Swingset. The website was born out of the feeling that he'd learned enough in his whole year of swinging to tell other people how to live their nonmonogamous lives. His hubris can be seen from space. Here, he has collected personal essays, stories, erotica, and prescriptive how-tos into this memoir of his life, My Life on the Swingset.
He may be biased when it comes to swinging, polyamory, and other forms of ethical nonmonogamy (in fact, he most certainly is), but he doesn't sugarcoat it. He speaks honestly and earnestly about a unique way to live life, one that allows for sexual and loving growth and experimentation, a strong sense of community, and the ability to do what we all crave, whether we know it or not: to be honest with ourselves and others about what we want sexually. And out of life.


What the Critics Say

"Cooper Beckett writes...with such honesty, wit, and charm.... He challenges the hard line between swinging and polyamory, tackles taboos with grace, and will make you rethink what you believe." (Tristan Taormino, author of Opening Up)

Wonderful Book!

Any additional comments?

I won this book in a giveaway on Twitter, and I was so excited because it had been on my list of books to read for a while. My Life on the Swingset is a wonderful collection of essays that give insight into both the world of ethical non-monogamy and the author's own experiences. I am glad I was able to listen to this book, and I am going to continue to listen to the podcasts. I would recommend this book to anybody with even a passing interest in non-monogamy.

A Great Tead

I heard about Cooper Beckett ' s book on a pod cast called, The Sexual Dark Age". And when he began to talk about it I was hoping that he would do an Audible version. So when he it finally happened I was excited! I had no problems listening to every word he said and he gives some good sage advice about what it's like to be Poly and in the lifestyle.

If you are thinking about entering the lifestyle and want to avoid the pitfalls and know what the lifestyle is all about. This is the book for you!
