My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging & Polyamory

Hump & Circumstance Press
2

 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. 

"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

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

 How Do Gay Porn Stars Make Bottoming Look So Easy?


Hung tops stick it in like a glute inject and the bottoms don’t even flinch. What’s their secret? And what can you learn from them so you can have ecstatic butt sex without any pain? Some of the answers will shock you. 


Learn porn star secrets to bottoming without pain and start making love with volcanic pleasure. Written by gay sex advice columnist Woody Miller and a team of urologists and colon-rectal specialists, this book combines porn industry secrets with innovative techniques from the latest gay male sex research. 


How We Got The Porn Industry’s Secrets To Bottoming Without Pain.


We sent a team of researchers to interview a truckload of gay male erotica industry folk—cameramen, scouts, producers, directors and performers. The result is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred look into the industry and the secrets they use to get performers to bottom without pain or messy scenes. The main sections: 


1: What You Can Learn From Porn Star Bottoms. 

A fascinating view of bottoming in the porn industry—how gay erotica performers prepare for a shoot, how they can take huge tops without any pain (even if it’s their first time) and how they stay loose despite day-long shoots. If you ever had a question about how the porn industry works, this is the place to find answers—from how much money porn stars make to what percent are heterosexual (shocking!) to their favorite brand of douches. 


2: Free Your Mind, Your Butt Will Follow. 

How To Bottom Like A Porn Star: The Ultimate Guide To Gay Sex is part porn exposé, part how-to from the latest gay sex research. In this chapter, we’ll look at how “Anticipatory pain” and a perceived loss of masculinity can put your butt in a headlock. We’ll show you how to resolve the emotional blocks that stop you from trying or enjoying anal sex with other gay men. 


3: Why It Feels Like You’re Being Impaled By A Fence Post. 

From our urologist and colon-rectal experts who specialize in gay male sex: It isn’t just your sphincter causing all that pain; it’s your “S-curve” as well as involuntary puborectal contractions. Learn your anatomical structure so you can make the tips in this book work better. 


4: How Porn Star Bottoms Relax Their Sphincters. 

Not all do it, or need to, but the gay men in the sex industry that do swear by it. Find out whether you should use their controversial method. 


5: The Porn Star Method Of Eliminating Pain. 

Find out the shocking things gay male erotica stars do to eliminate pain. Some cannot be recommended, but others can and we’ve combined them with a technique that blends systematic desensitization, pattern breathing, progressive muscle relaxation and sexual imagery to completely eliminate pain and heighten pleasure. 


6: How Porn Star Bottoms Handle The Ick Factor. 

Find out their secrets to getting your butt cleaner than a Brady Bunch rerun. 


7: A Device That’s Better Than A Douche Or An Enema. 

Enemas and douches are a bad idea (despite the porn industry’s reliance on them). Find out why and what product doctors recommend that will get you as clean as a douche without any of the harmful side effects. 


8: How To Bottom Without Pain For The First Time. 

Here you’ll learn how to combine the best position with the best angle of entry. Missionary? Doggie-style? Straight in? Angled up? When it comes to gay sex, it matters. 


9: A Guided Tour Of A Pain-Free Bottoming Session Between Adam And Steve. 

A beginner’s real-time, step-by-step guide to bottoming—porn style!-- that will light you up like an all-night liquor store.
