Life on the Swingset announces their sixth annual Swingset Takes Desire event at Desire Resorts Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico. Swingset Takes Desire is a week-long trip for members of the swinging, polyamorous, and kinky communities hosted by the co-hosts of Life on the Swingset, the flagship podcast of the Swingset.FM podcast network.
Swingset Takes Desire will be a full takeover of the clothing-optional, couples only resort, putting the Swingset crew in charge of Desire’s entertainment, activities, and theme nights, which will include the first-ever Pride Night at the resort. This year’s special guest is award-winning author, filmmaker, educator, and Sex Out Loud radio host Tristan Taormino, who will participate in classes, discussions, and other activities throughout the trip.
“There is nobody out there who better represents our vision of inclusivity, exploration, and glorious sexuality than Tristan,” says Life on the Swingset co-host Cooper S. Beckett. “We couldn’t be more excited to have her join us for a week of exploring desires and expanding horizons.”
The Swingset Takes Desire schedule will also feature a BDSM dungeon night, sex toy show & tell sessions, and workshops on pegging, flogging, fisting and other topics, as well as live recordings of Life on the Swingset, Sex Out Loud, Ending the Sexual Dark Age, and other Swingset.FM network podcasts.
“The Life on the Swingset team is at the center of revolutionizing swinging and I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this takeover with them and recording Sex Out Loud Radio live from Desire,” said Taormino. “This trip is truly the sex positive vacation of a lifetime.”

Author, podcaster, and sex educator Cooper S. Beckett announces the release of Approaching the Swingularity, a novel about a week of debauchery and drama at Aphrodite’s Resort & Spa on the Riviera Maya. The story features characters that were introduced in his first novel, A Life Less Monogamous, which was published last year.
Beckett is the founder of Life on the Swingset, a website about swinging, polyamory, and open relationships, and the host of its flagship podcast Life on the Swingset. His first book, a memoir and essay collection called My Life on the Swingset, was published in 2015 and reached #1 on Amazon.com’s sexuality bestsellers list.
Published on Beckett’s own Hump & Circumstance Press, Approaching the Swingularity tells the story of three couples and their host as they experience the unique pleasures and challenges that come with vacationing in a swinger’s paradise, from the struggle to leave problems from home behind to the quirks and perks of being the only lesbian couple in the resort to the mastery of proper orgy etiquette.
“The positive response to my first novel was so gratifying, and now I’m excited to continue the journey of those characters in a new setting,” said Beckett. “The world of Approaching the Swingularity is broader, deeper, and more complex, which allowed me to explore more of the flavors of nonmonogamy and sexuality in a way that I think readers will really enjoy.”
Approaching the Swingularity is available as an ebook and paperback today. For more information and to order the book, visit ApproachingTheSwingularity.com.
Podcast Host and Non-Monogamy Expert Debuts Novel On Swinging and Relationships
Author, podcaster, and sex educator Cooper S. Beckett announces the release of A Life Less Monogamous, a novel about being a newbie in the swinging lifestyle.
Beckett is the founder of Life on the Swingset, a website about swinging, polyamory, and open relationships, and the host of its flagship podcast Life on the Swingset. His first book, a memoir and essay collection called My Life on the Swingset, was published last year and reached #1 on Amazon.com’s sexuality bestsellers list.
Published on Beckett’s own Hump & Circumstance Press, A Life Less Monogamous tells the story of Ryan and Jennifer, a couple who find themselves at a crossroads in their marriage and sex life. A chance meeting at a party with a pair of swingers leads to a new friendship and an introduction to a different kind of relationship. Ryan and Jennifer jump into the deep end and find a better understanding of themselves, a new world of sexual exploration, and a deeper connection with friends and each other as they navigate the pleasures and challenges of the swinging lifestyle.
“I believe that this novel contains some of my finest writing on the dense topic of non-monogamy, and I’m incredibly proud to have this story out in the world,” said Beckett. “We the weirdos, the non-monos, the swingers, have been incredibly under-represented in the world of media, and that is something I hope is beginning to change.”
A Life Less Monogamous is available as an ebook and paperback today, and the audiobook version is available for pre-order. For more information and to order the book, visit ALifeLessMonogamous.com.
