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 nonmonogamous 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, My Life on the Swingset. He may be biased when it comes to swinging, polyamory, and other forms of ethical nonmonogamy (in fact, he most certainly is), but he doesn't sugarcoat it.

I enjoy auditory storytelling very much, and enjoyed the book more in this way. The emotion in the reading made it more relatable to me.

I found the way Cooper spoke was a like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy but for ethical non monogamy. In the sense that it was easy to follow and comical.

It also felt like the vagina monologues, brutally honest and sexually open. I feel this book of essays could be preformed well on stage and I’d love to see that.
