Life on the Swingset - The Swinging & Polyamory Podcast

This week on The Swingset, we return to the scorching 107 degree heat of Austin, Texas, where Ginger and Cooper attended and presented at Camp Ravish. On the last day of Camp, they sat down with several other presenters there, including The Two Knotty Boys, Melissa Jones, Bella LaVey, Rihannon Ixchel, and Miss O Kissed, to talk about the state of affairs for those of us plying a sex positive trade, while skirting around the issue of that big orange thing crashing toward us all.

(A quick note, again we were outside in the heat, so we had both fans and a fountain to contend with, but fuck it, we did it live!) Hope you enjoy!

After tonight's episode, you'll also be able to hear some audio erotica, a short story called Go For Launch - Double Penetration For Science, read by Angela Elmore of the By the Bi Podcast

This past weekend, Cooper S. Beckett and Ginger Bentham flew down to the balmy state of Texas, which greeted them with a 107 degree heat index. But the temperature wasn’t the only thing that was hot that weekend because they were in town for Camp Ravish just outside of Austin – three days and two nights of connecting with like-minded adults in a fun, frisky and judgment free camp setting. We lead the weekend talking about coloring outside the lines and exploring your boundaries in sexuality and kink, and we’re thrilled to bring the audio of this session to The Swingset.

Hope you enjoy!

The Swingset crew is back with another Gang Bang the Mailbag! Cooper S. Beckett, Dylan Thomas, Dr. Liz Powell, Dirty Lola, and Mister Pent answer listener voicemails and emails!

Voicemailbag Question #1 Summary

How can my husband better navigate swinger culture after coming clean from an alcohol addiction?

Voicemailbag Question #2 Summary

How can I be more innovate and interesting with my spanking scenes?

Mailbag Question #1:

I've recently been kicked out of my mom's house and I'm now living at my dad's.

Financially I think I'll be okay, but when I opened up to dad about my work—how my drawings can occasionally be NSFW—he got really... defensive? He basically said he doesn't want it anywhere in the house.

As an artist this is inconvenient, but as a human being it hurts. I wanted to just be honest with him, but he doesn't know that his backward never-talk-about-sex mindset is just harmful.

I just wish I knew the words to explain why, if he wants to protect his kids (16 and 9), my siblings, he needs to be open and teach them about consent—not just to be afraid of sexuality, which they'll just need therapy for later in life.


Mailbag Question #2:

To be blunt, how do you swing, go to play parties, etc when your body is malfunctioning? Hemmerhoids, yeast infections, UTIs, the like. Do I just put up a "closed" sign when this, um, crap, happens? Help!
