A Life Less Monogamous: a novel about swinging

Hump & Circumstance
1

We all come to a point in our lives where we finally ask the ever-looming question, “Is this all there is?” And most of us coast along afterwards, just accepting that the answer to that question is probably, "Yes, this is it." Sometimes, though, we’re lucky. Sometimes we run into the right people at the right time.

Ryan and Jennifer are at that point in their marriage, asking that question. Luckily, tonight at a friend’s holiday party, they’re about to run into those very right people at exactly the right time. Bruce and Paige have successfully crossed the Rubicon into the realm of "what else there is." They’ve discovered delights and a way of living that Ryan and Jennifer have only ever dreamed about.

Their secret? Bruce and Paige are swingers. And very soon now, thanks to a chance meeting and a new friendship, Ryan and Jennifer will close their eyes, clasp hands, and jump into the deep end of life, exploring the untold wonders of sexuality. Hedonistic pleasures that they can’t even fathom yet, threesomes and sex parties and a deep connection with friends and with each other. The swinging lifestyle.

Today is the day they proclaim: “There is more.” Today is the day they change their lives.


Cooper S. Beckett, host of Life on the Swingset: The Podcast now beginning its sixth year, author of the bestselling memoir My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging and Polyamory, and guest expert on Dan Savage's Savage Lovecast, takes you back to the beginning with a novel about being a newbie in the swinging lifestyle. 

"With A Life Less Monogamous, Cooper continues the tradition set by his memoir My Life on the Swingset, sharing even more insights about the real challenges in relationships of all kinds. Cooper teaches, titillates, and bares his soul, showing how a life less monogamous can keep sex between couples flourishing."
- Betty Dodson, Author Sex For One 

“Your life is yours to own. Cooper shows us how two people, or even more than two people, can design their relationships to be exactly what they want them to be. With authenticity, sensuality, and a sharp edge, A Life Less Monogamous lets you peek behind the curtain of a modern marriage adventure.”
- Ginger Bentham, Intellectual Foreplay 

“A good writer makes the reader feel, and that’s what Cooper Beckett does here! Kick back and enjoy all the wining and dining, and yearning and learning that takes place!”
- Kendra Holliday, The Beautiful Kind 

“If you’re looking for a realistic “high stakes” story about love, sex, desire, and the mistakes that go along with asking for what you REALLY WANT (even if you never want to swing or open up your relationship), Cooper Beckett has captured something that can teach all of us a thing or two. If you just read one chapter, make it Chapter 47!”
- ”America’s favorite sex geek,” Reid Mihalko 

“Cooper's debut novel provides an intimate look at the emotional life of one couple as they contemplate the leap from comfortable (but dull) monogamy to non-monogamy. For anyone wondering how and why couples open up their marriages, this book is a compelling account of the appeal, the struggles, and yes, the sexiness of what non-monogamy can mean to its practitioners. For swingers and non-swingers alike, this is a delightful, fast-paced read that follow's one couple's fantasies, adventures, and conflicts, with an irresistible blend of sensuality and angst.”
- Dr Jeana Jorgensen

A journey from monogamy to swinging and polyamory starts with a single kiss. Over the course of two novels by Cooper S. Beckett, follow Jennifer and Ryan Lambert who have reached the very edge of their marital contentment, wondering if this is just what modern marriage looks like. When they meet the Shepards, they find Bruce and Paige so very sophisticated, witty...sexy. The Shepards don't seem to have any of the boredom that has crept into their own marriage. They're at ease, they're funny, they're...flirty?Everything makes more sense when Jennifer and Ryan find out the truth about Bruce and Paige. The Shepards are swingers, and the Lamberts want in.The next several years of their lives will be a wild ride through the intense hedonistic world of the swinging lifestyle and into polyamory, an erotic journey of orgies, swingers parties, miscommunication, surprise attraction, and exploring sexuality, that ultimately takes them to the tropical paradise of a swingers resort in Mexico.Along with Bruce and Paige, and other exploring couples, they have descended upon Aphrodite's Resort and Spa, a place of pleasure and debauchery, situated on a strip of white sand beach on the Riviera Maya for a week of the finest food and drink, meeting and flirting, and getting down and dirty with friends and lovers alike for tales of swinging and polyamory in paradise.Previously published separately, A Life Less Monogamous and Approaching the Swinglarity, two novels by Cooper S. Beckett, are now available in a single volume along with two additional short stories from The Swingularity.
