Cooper S. Beckett

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, novels A Life Less Monogamous is a novel about newbie swingers finding their way in a big scary hedonistic world, and Approaching the Swingularity: Tales of Swinging & Polyamory in Paradise. His memoir My Life on the Swingset: Adventures in Swinging & Polyamory collects essays from his first five years in non-monogamy.

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.

He vows to save the world from mundane sexuality, even if he has to do it one person at a time.
