Cooper S. Beckett sat down with us to talk all things swinging. What’s the difference between swinging and polyamory? Why don’t the sexual subcommunities always play nicely together? What’s the deal with bisexuality in the swing lifestyle? When is the right (and wrong) time for couples to explore non-monogamy? What the heck does the 2008 financial collapse have to do with non-monogamy today? We also discuss Cooper’s coming out and how the current political climate has affected him as a leader in the sex-positive community.
Cooper S. Beckett is the co-founder and host of Life on the Swingset: The Podcast since 2010, author of swinging & polyamory novels A Life Less Monogamous and Approaching The Swingularity, and memoir My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging & Polyamory. He teaches and speaks on swinging, polyamory, pegging, play parties, and coloring outside the boundaries of your sexuality. He is a graphic & web designer, photographer, and voice over artist, has been a guest expert on Dan Savage’s Savage Lovecast, & is the announcer of Tristan Taormino’s radio show Sex Out Loud.
