What It’s Like to Be a Swinger

Life Less Monagamous

By A.C. Rose

Cooper S. Beckett has vowed to save the world from mundane sexuality, even if he has to do it one person at a time.

It sounds so seventies, but… Cooper is a swinger.  He is also author of My Life on the Swingset, a collection of essays about his first five years on the scene; and most recently he

penned A Life Less Monogamous, a novel about swinging that publishes on February 9.

For the past six years, he’s been running the Life On The Swingset website, where he reports on swinging, polyamory, and open relationships from the trenches. You can also listen to his podcast there.

Most of his work reflects his desire to publicly explore what it means to be open sexually in a world that’s often closed.  But that’s not all he does publically. You can read more about that in his books.

In his new novel, A Life Less Monogamous, Ryan and Jennifer are a married couple wondering, “Is that all there is?” A chance meeting with Bruce and Paige leads them into a world of hedonistic pleasures and delights they’d never even dreamed of.  Their new world includes threesomes, sex parties, and a deep connection with friends and with each other.  Oh my.

Cooper, no longer part of a couple, now goes it solo on the scene.  “I was married, and non-monogamy isn’t the reason my marriage ended,” he says. “It is great to be partnered in non-monogamous communities, but it’s unnecessary.”
