    My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging & Polyamory - Cooper S. Beckett

    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 non-monogamous 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 on The Swingset.

    He may be biased when it comes to swinging, polyamory, and other forms of ethical non-monogamy (in fact, he most certainly is) but he doesn't sugar-coat 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: Be honest with ourselves and others about what we want sexually. And out of life.


    My Life on the Swingset - The Buzz

    "Cooper Beckett writes about non-monogamy, sex, love, and friendship with such honesty, wit, and charm, it's hard not to like this guy. He challenges the hard line between swinging and polyamory, tackles taboos with grace, and will make you rethink what you believe about relationships." - Tristan Taormino

    "Lots of people talk about open relationships and non-monogamy, but few do it with as much clarity, compassion, humor, and intelligence as Cooper Beckett. He has lots of insight and wisdom to share, whether you're just dipping your toes or you've been swimming in the deep end of open relationships. You won't be disappointed." - Charlie Glickman

    "Kudos to Cooper Beckett for his delightful collection of essays regarding his exploration of non-traditional ways of being in relationship. He speaks from personal experience and shares all of it, the good and bad, the silly and transcendent, the harsh bumps and effortless glides, the highs and lows, the insights and cluelessness, the benefits and drawbacks, of choosing to love consciously in a culture that makes it hard to do so. "Essential reading for anyone interested in all that is implied by the 'non' in 'non-monogamy.'" - Nina Hartley

    "When I first met Cooper I asked him to come back to my hotel 'cause he's not afraid to let it all hang out. His essays are factual yet full of humor, drama, and, my favorite, sexy parts. He shares his truth about swinging and other ways to spice up monogamy when sex slowly fades from the menu." - Betty Dodson

    "As I read My Life on the Swingset, I saw my own poly/non-monogamous relationship reflected and grew excited to share the book with my partner. I also thought 'Damn, I'd really like to meet this Cooper Beckett fella.' (And it's not often that I'm seduced by an author.) Expressive, honest, and often hilariously geeky, this collection of personal anecdotes on ethical non-monogamy is as enjoyable for the most jaded poly 'sexpert' as it is educational to the new swinger. My Life on the Swingset is the dirty cousin to The Ethical Slut. I can get with this." - Jiz Lee


    About the Author

    Cooper S. Beckett is the founder of "Life on the Swingset, a website about swinging, polyamory, and open relationships from the trenches, and host of its titular flagship podcast for the last six years. On both the site and podcast, he tackles sex, relationships, and their accompanying accouterments, and what it means to be open sexually in a world that’s often closed.

    He spent much of his life afraid of sex, sexuality, his bisexuality, his true interests, and global thermonuclear war. Today, his work is as eclectic as it is eccentric. He travels to speak on sexuality and non-monogamy, has been a guest expert on Dan Savage’s Savage Lovecast, and his is the voice that welcomes you to Tristan Taormino’s radio show/podcast Sex Out Loud. He has taught classes all over the US on pegging, swinging, and play parties.

    He has written three books. My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging & Polyamory was released in January of 2015 and collects essays from his first five years in non-monogamy. A Life Less Monogamous is a novel about newbie swingers finding their way in a big scary hedonistic world and was released in February of 2016. His second novel, Approaching The Swingularity: Tales of Swinging & Polyamory in Paradise, will be out in April of 2017

    He is a graphic & web designer, photographer, and voice over artist, co-hosts Eat The Rudecast, a podcast about the NBC television series Hannibal, and the upcoming Damn Good Podcast about Twin Peaks with Miko Technogeisha and Ophilia Tesla.

    He is a knitter, and has proudly knit three Gryffindor scarves, a Freddy Krueger/Christmas scarf, five fourteen foot Doctor Who scarves, three “Very Fine” Jayne Cobb hats, and vows to someday figure out mittens.

    He is an avid board gamer, and can often be found playing Catan, Firefly: The Game, and his all-time favorite Zombicide, into which he has inserted himself as a playable character: a naked man, wearing Chuck Taylor All Stars and a Doctor Who scarf, holding the nJoy Eleven aloft. He collects Stephen King first editions, and has almost every book in hard cover with two-thirds being first editions.
